Be quick as rooms are allocated on a ‘First In’ basis. We have 6 x single rooms sharing facilities with neighbour room, 2 x twin rooms sharing facilities with neighbour room and 1 x self-contained boudoir (Chambre D’amour).

Enjoy Apero in the evenings at Maison de Maitresse & Amanda’s special cocktails; lunches and dinners out at local cafes and restaurants specially chosen; lunches and dinners inhouse by Amanda/Judy and guest chefs; antique & bric a brac market Ville Neuve des Avignon; Saturday market Uzes where we buy the freshest Provencal produce and bring it home to make lunch but stay long enough for a taster of shucked oysters and prawns washed down with Picpoul (local white wine) and exploring; we take sightseeing trips to places of interest in the Provence/Gard Region in under one hour - a full day in Avignon, Les Baux and Carriers de Luminers, Saint Quentin La Poterie, Isle sur la Sourge & Fountaine de Valcluse, Roussillon & Gordes, St Remy.

We have a day kayaking the Gardon River and a gourmet picnic on the banks viewing the Pont du Gard (awesome 2000 year old Roman Acquaduct); a day relaxing at Carnon Plage (Beach), swimming in the Med, lounging under an umbrella and lunch at beach cafe right on the beach. Great European beach experience.

3 days in Italy takes in San Remo (where we stay in a lovely Hotel in walking distance of the centre); San Remo Market; short train ride to Ventimiglia all day market. (Italy option includes Escorted travel by 9 & 7 seater people carrier, Excluded: Hotel and meals out at your own expense).

Some people may wish to leave us in San Remo and continue onwards by own arrangements. Cinque Terre is only 2 1/2 hours approximately from San Remo. Portofino, Santa Margherita, Ligura etc within a comfortable few hours drive.
