    An affordable peak season family holiday!

    Family holidays in peak summer season can be just a little expensive, to say the least. However, if you fancy a holiday on France’s glorious West coast (with some of the longest sandy beaches in Europe) we suggest you have a look at an offer that was sent to us […]

     
     
  • Kylemore Pass, Connemara National Park
     

    Motor your way to Connemara

    Anyone who reads a quality newspaper would know that the stunning landscape of Connemara is synonymous with efforts by Irish Tourism to attract tourists to their country. You’ll see images of Kylemore Abbey and the moss-covered hills surrounding it in just about any brochure. But how many tourists actually make […]

    150 years of Brits in Zermatt

    Zermatt has a reputation amongst even the least experienced skiers of a seriously good ski destination. It also has a justifiable reputation for being pretty expensive, so who was I, a mere one-time skier, to turn down the opportunity of seeing it for real? It was the Brits who introduced […]

    Rebirth of a ski market?

    News has reached us of a new product launch from a UK company called Footprint Holidays.

    Weird and wonderful festivals 2014-part1

    We love a good festival, and we don’t just mean tented cities with lots of bands. Food festivals, wine festivals, saint’s festivals, giants festivals…they are all a great excuse for a knees up.  French regions do festivals really well and Charente Maritime is no exception (who wouldn’t love a party […]

    Annecy – Venice of the Alps

    By Trevor Claringbold The last time I was in Annecy was about seven years ago, when it was merely a convenient stopover on a back-roads drive to Monaco. We’d arrived after dark, and had the briefest glimpse of the town and its magnificent lake, through an alpine mist, as we […]

    Portofino – Where the Famous rub shoulders with the Fishermen

    By Trevor Claringbold For those of us old enough to remember the sixties, Portofino was one of the millionaires’ playgrounds that we mere mortals could only dream of visiting. The secluded villas and designer homes around the tiny peninsular were snapped up by the celebrities of the day, and the […]

    The Italian Riviera

    by Trevor Claringbold It may not be as famous or chic as its neighbour just across the border, but the Italian Riviera in many ways has more to offer than the French equivalent. Liguria, to give this stretch of coast and its hinterland its correct title, can be roughly split […]

    Kitzbuhel – An Alpine Gem

    by Trevor Claringbold There’s little doubt that Austria is blessed with far more than it’s fair share of attractive towns and villages. The majority, of course, also enjoy some of Europe’s most impressive mountains as a backdrop. So how do you choose just one in which to spend a few […]

    Wellington’s Portugal

    Trevor Claringbold points the way to a tour of Wellington’s Peninsula wars in Portugal against Napoleon. Mention holidays in Portugal and most people will instantly conjure up images of the clean sandy beaches along the Algarve. But there is far more to this superbly diverse nation, much of which is […]
