The 2017 European trip will be based around three nights over the weekend of 10-11 June in either Annecy or Aix-les-Bains, France. You will be free to explore the town or local area, or join Giulietta driving tours a little further afield if you wish.
We will meet on Wednesday, 7 June, at lunchtime prior to a mid-afternoon Channel crossing to give us time to get 150 miles or so to Laon for our first overnight stop. Then two days and 400 miles through scenic eastern France to either Aix or Annecy, to arrive late Friday afternoon.
After three nights in the hotel we will start our return jurney7, taking three days to cover 500 miles back to Dover by the the late afternoon of Wednesday 14 June. Our return route takes us into new pastures via the western part of the Burgundy wine region and the hills of the Morvan, before picking up the motorway for the final run up to Calais.
We hope that this tour will provide a good blend of leisurely driving, a chance to relax and to indulge in a variety of excursions on the weekend in Aix or Annecy.
For this trip we will budget as usual on around £1,100 per car (two people) to cover the Channel crossing, seven nights accommodation, and three or four set group dinners.
