Trips & Excursions

August 25 to September 1

One of the many highlights of this trip is the day we spend with Martin at his home, enjoying a lavish lunch while Martin thrills us with his stories about the French Resistance in the area, plus its early history. We’ll visit the magnificent Lascaux IV cave, Josephine Baker’s chateau and much more. Of course we’ll taste Bruno’s favorite wines. Our base for the trip is the historic Sarlat-la-Canéda, plus one night in beautiful Bordeaux. Please note: this trip fills up very quickly.
