SPAIN & FRANCE

Bordeaux Wine, Basque Food & Barcelona Style

Combine the sublime with Bordeaux wines, the Pink City of Toulouse and Medieval Carcassonne for a journey into the worlds of both Spain and South West France.

With France being so close to Spain it is easy to combine Majestic Madrid, Irresistible La Rioja, Tasty San Sebastian, and Cosmopolitan Barcelona then pop over the border to include some French flair!

Toulouse is known as the Ville Rose ("Pink City") of France and the capital of good life, mixing heritage and lifestyle, chic boutiques and beautiful squares with typically French cafes.

In Carcassonne take a step back in time in La Cite - a perfectly restored, medieval walled fortress town, the biggest in Europe, with numerous watchtowers and double-walled fortifications.

On the coast, Biarritz is an olde-worlde seaside resort where European royalty once headed to relax.  It is one of the most attractive seaside saunters in France with its famous promenade, Art Deco casino and old Fishermen's port, which was built by Napoleon.

And for the wine lover, Bordeaux, the leading wine region of France, with more than 7000 wine producers! It is home to the most sought-after and expensive wines in the world, incredible wineries and wine chateaux, as well as some delightful towns.

The charming Saint-Emilion is one of Bordeaux's largest winemaking appellations and offers, of course, top class vineyards, world famous wineries and fine wine, but also beautiful architecture, historic monuments and a beautiful small medieval town.

With Spain and France combined you will visit world class wineries in both countries, appreciate the unique culture of each and delight in gourmet food on both sides of the border. 

Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know. John Keats
