Two fantastic weeks at a relaxed enjoyable pace during which we will check out a few towns along the French Riviera: Cannes, Nice, Aix-en-Provence, Saint-Tropez, Monaco and more.
Our first villa will be in the beautiful country side outside the Mediaeval village of Vence. After seven days we will cross into Northern Italy driving along the coast and settling into a gorgeous villa over the hills above Cinque Terre. From here we will be hiking to Portofino, Monterosso, Vernazza, Manarola and Riomaggiore to cheque the scenery.
We will also enjoy side trips to the nearby Barolo country, to the countryside in Piedmont for truffle hunting and a day trip to Lake Como.
Due to accommodations and transportation arrangements, this trip is for a very small intimate group of 7 people. Very limited space remains.
Barolo Tasting: Drive through the stunning Barolo region stopping to take in the views, the fragrances, the beauty and of course to taste some outstanding wine and learn from the locals. Enjoy an outing looking for truffles with a local and their expert canine friend. Sit down to enjoy a meal where truffle is the king and Barolo its inseparable friend.
When you are in France cheese is a must, so let there be cheese along the way as we explore the Provence region with its charming ancient villages and beautiful vineyards.
