Epernay in Champagne – 9th December 2017
Our last tour for 2017 finished just this week with guests returning back from a French Christmas Extravaganza which saw them spend time in two of Frances most prestigious locations – Paris and Epernay in Champagne. Throughout the time away mostly dry weather was enjoyed, resulting in plenty of sightseeing in Paris and dry evenings for the Epernay ‘Habits de Lumiere’ – a fantastic champagne sponsored procession of illuminated floats followed by a large fireworks display timed perfectly to classical music.
As we approach the Christmas period, apart from bank holidays, our office will be open to answer any questions or assist with any tour reservations you wish to make so feel free to contact us by email or telephone. With a number of our 2018 tours becoming fully booked the festive season is an ideal time to make your plans for next year’s holidays, and for those holding loyalty discount vouchers from this year’s tours remember these remain valid for any 2018 reservations made before the end of this year..
Our next available tour and a perfect winter escape is to the Cote d’Azur & Carnivals in February for which we have tickets reserved for entrance to two of the main carnival events that take place along the chic French coast at this time of year. As well as the carnivals the tour includes excursions to Monte Carlo, the Gallimard perfume factory and the loop gorge, along with a number of group meals and the good possibility of winter sunshine to enjoy.
Back at home during the damper months of winter, motorhome manufacturers recommend owners remove cushions and bedding from their motorhomes and store indoors. Often the practicalities of doing this are not easy, so a simpler alternative can be to periodically run a de-humidifier inside the motorhome to keep moisture levels low. Also doing this for 24 hours before taking the motorhome out on a winter trip can be particular useful to ensure you set out in a cosy dry van.
Have a great festive season and we look forward to seeing you in 2018.
