Dear Fellow Motorhomers,
The Olympics are in full flow, the children are on school holidays and many of us have plans for getting away in our motorhomes very soon. If you’re still looking to make plans for a holiday in September we have a brand new tour to Sicily, this has just been introduced, starts 15th September and substitutes our Boutique Turkey tour for this year. Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and much bigger than most people realise. The Mafia and Inspector Montalbano most spring to mind and whilst you’re unlikely to spot either of these your visit will be rewarded with stunning architecture and traditions from 2,500 years of mixed occupation. Our tour covers the whole island and throughout you’ll never be far from the sea. We stay in the islands two major cities, capital Palermo and second city Catania; see the geographical phenomenon of Mount Etna, the nature of San Vito lo Capo peninsular, the ancient monuments at the Valley of Temples & Salinunte, the wonderful architecture in Syracuse & Cefalù, the UNESCO towns of Noto and Taormina, and the amazing mosaics of Villa Romana. The full Sicily tour itinerary is available on our website by clicking on the link and if this September is too soon for you to join us look out for a repeat of this tour in the Spring of 2018.
We are just back from the Western Motorhome show at Malvern and what a great event this was, certainly helped by the warm weather we are currently enjoying. It was good to see so many of you and to meet many new people interested in our tours. From first timers abroad to those wishing to travel much further afield we spoke to motorhomers with very varying desires for their motorhome holidays. Of the 12 tours we offer each year there is always a mix of destinations and tour lengths, so something for everyone.
If you’re currently at home for the summer this can be a good time to renew your passports. Remember you can now renew a passport up to 9 months before expiry and the remaining months on the existing passport will be added to the 10 years of the new one so you won’t lose out. See www.gov.uk/renew-adult-passport
Enjoy the remainder of your summer and we look forward to escorting you and your motorhome to great places throughout Europe and beyond very soon.
