Autumn Breaks 2014
CULTURAL VISITS: VISIT TO THE ABBEY OF MONTSERRAT, THE GREEK RUINS OF EMPURIES and FORT SANT FERRAN at FIGUERES.
Dates: From Saturday 4th October–Monday 3rd November. This would consist of three separate visits over a week. Not everybody would necessarily be able to arrive on the same day but the visits would roll round so they were not repeated less than once a week. The price of this package of 7 nights is 450 euros per person B&B and would include all transport costs, Girona airport pick up, entrance fees to the places of interest and 3 evening meals. (There would be a single supplement of 50€)
GUIDED CATALUÑA NATURE TRAILS.
Throughout the month of October, Jane and John are conducting local nature trails either on foot or by bicycle. There will be at least three per week and can be a combination of either walking or cycling if so preferred. October is a great time to see the local countryside. The masses of summer have left and the zone settles down again for the winter. Suggested trails are by foot down to Palamos via Castell beach, Cami de Ronda from Llafrance to Tamariu, forest walk up to Fitor which is that part of the Gavares above Palafrugell or the Costal path around Begur. Because it is fairly flat, cycling is an easy option and of course you can cover a lot more in a day out.
The price for these guided trails is 350 euros per person B&B including dinner on 2 nights of a five day stay or 450 euros per person B&B including dinner on 3 nights for a seven day break. Transport to and from Girona airport and bike hire is included. (There would be a 50€ single supplement charge)
Along with the above offers is a chance to learn a bit about the preparation of tapas in Palamos. The charge for this is currently 25€. Link to this is on the following site under “Activitats ( in Catalan!).
Please note taxes will have to be added to the above rates. Taxes currently are: 10% IVA (VAT).
If there was anybody wanting a pick up from Barcelona airport then an additional 50 euros would apply per journey.
