Wonderful hotel, superb food. Tour manager went out of her way to ensure everyone had a great holiday. Pleasant and informative - no one could have done more. Only downside was dreadful scramble to get onto the train at Lyon, on our return, despite being there in plenty of time
Hotel rooms and evening meals were very good; breakfast eventually got sorted out. Places visited were beautiful; some deserve a return visit, with more time to explore. Beautiful area and enjoyable holiday.
