About this trip

Stay in a château in southern France… A 16th century French château with a lush provincial landscape will be your base your base as you stroll through cobbled streets lined with medieval monuments and pick out cheese from a local farmer's stand at the market in town. Picture-perfect medieval towns full of well-preserved traditions and the beautiful monuments steeped in history are just part of southern France's appeal. 


Stay in a French château!: Experience the grandeur of a bygone era as the nobles did in a beautifully-kept château built in the 16th century.


Southern France like a local: Shop for groceries at the nearby farmer's market, play a game of pétanque accompanied by a glass of fine French wine and sip on a cup of coffee as you people watch at a sidewalk cafe... All part of the quintessential French experience!


Charming villages galore: Visit Les Baux-de-Provence, a stone kingdom perched on a hilltop where the tastes and scents of Provence are brought to life. And it was named one of the most beautiful villages in France!

This trip was great. We had a wonderful group of people. The hotel and the grounds were absolutely lovely. Sandy and Marie looked after us well and planned some great (if long) excursions for our free days. If they hadn't put together the itineraries, I probably wouldn't have seen some of the places we went like the beautiful castles and gardens in Sintra, the wonderful little town of Obidos, the beautiful beaches, the stunning Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória. There were a good amount of free days so you could do some of the excursions and still have some free time to explore on your own or just relax at the hotel. Portugal is beautiful and fairly inexpensive, the people are very nice and most speak English and if you like seafood, you'll love the food. I recommend the trip.

The villa and grounds were lovely, our staycation host, Sandy, was very fun and accommodating and took care of our every need. We were also blessed with a fabulous group of people staying at the villa, which made this staycation extra special.

We had the best time on our Italy vacation! Sandy was amazing, attending to all the details and making sure we all had the best options for our trip. The villa is lovely, the town was so fun to discover for food, shoping, views, relaxing and good times. We couldn't have asked for a better group of people to tour with, great friendships were made on this trip!

This is my first "group" trip with individuals I didn't know prior to landing in Italy. I could not have asked for a better experience. The trip was fantastic in every way. The group that were on this trip was awesome. We had so much fun!! The area was so picturesque and exceeded my expectations. The Villa was very comfortable and spacious. Sandy, our GD tour person was exceptional. She took care of each and every one of us and made sure we were all having the best time. I will treasure the memories of this adventure and will stay in touch with the "new" friends I've made.
