An outdoor swimming pool, bar satellite TV, phone and air conditioning all help to make your stay an enjoyable one. Due to the wine harvest, September is an extremely busy period in the Douro Valley – so unpaid reserves for rooms held without a deposit, are now very limited and therefore early booking is essential. If we have too many late deciders we may need to change our chosen accommodation. At least one visit to a winery is planned every day and lunch has been reserved at a selection of nice restaurants. The Cost of the tour is €1500.00 per person based on two people sharing. Single supplement to be quoted at time of booking. Costs do not include travel to/from Portugal but do include all travel within Portugal, all hotels, meals and organised visits and trips – wineries, boat trips and river cruises.
Monday 1st November to Friday 8th November:
Luxury Golf and wine holiday in Cyprus. It occurred to us that many keen golfers also love wine and we thought we’d organise a week’s holiday to be remembered for wine-loving golfers and their golf widows. We chose the plush Aphrodite Hills Hotel resort overlooking the best golf course in Free Cyprus. We’ve planned two rounds of golf there and two more at nearby golf courses. There are a host of attractions for non-golf playing partners – spa treatments, gym, tennis, horse riding, free shuttle to private beach. We’ll take you to some great wineries on the Paphos and Limassol wine trails and we’ll have some fantastic Greek meals along the way. Cost of this memorable holiday is €2000 based on two people sharing. It includes all hotel accomodation, meals, golf fees, wine tasting, visits and local transport, but not air fares. You need to get yourself to Paphos.
