Roses - Costa Brava

(Spain)

Staying at: Prestige Victoria Hotel and Spa Elite, Roses

Sunday 5th - Monday 13th September 2021

Sunday: Making an early start we make our way to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais. From Calais we head down through France, passing Arras, St Quentin and Troyes. We will make comfort breaks en route and arrive at our overnight hotel in Dijon during the evening.

Monday: We make our way to our holiday destination of Roses on the Costa Brava Coast. The hotel for our six night stay is the Victoria which is a recognised for its high standard of cleanliness, spa facilities and direct access to the beach.

Tuesday: A relaxing day to discover Roses, maybe take a ride on the local Land Train, which takes you to view the local area and places of interest.

Wednesday: We have a great excursion planned for today; we take our coach on a scenic drive to the village of Villefranche de Conflent. Villefranche is listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO, a fortified village situated at the foot of Mount Canigou. Encircled by solid fortifications, this medieval village is said to be one of the most beautiful in France. The picturesque streets can be accessed by the St Pierre Bridge over the River Têt. As well as the very beautiful streets and buildings other notable places to visit would be the Town Hall Belfry Tower and church of St James built in the twelfth century with a lovely pink marble entrance. Above the village is the imposing Fort Liberia built in 1681 with an underground stairway 734 steps, heads to the fort or for the less energetic 4x4 shuttle bus will take you to this hilltop fort. A visit to Villefranche is always memorable.

Thursday: We plan a boat trip this morning to pretty whitewashed village of Cadaques. A maze of pretty, narrow streets tumble down to the water, stylish art galleries mingle effortlessly with souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants. After time to savour this picturesque location we return, by boat, to Roses. We have a light lunch of salad, sardines and sangria on the return journey.

Friday: Today we take the coach through the National Park and to the resort of Estartit. From here we board a glass bottomed boat which then allows us to enjoy the beauty of the marine nature reserve of the Medes Islands. A true all natural aquarium to marvel at the flora and fauna of the mediterranean.

Saturday: A relaxing day in Roses for our last day. Enjoy the beach explore the old town for souvenirs.

Sunday: We leave Roses this morning and retrace our journey over the border and through France, once again our overnight stop is at Dijon. Monday: From Dijon we return to Calais for our ferry crossing to Dover. Rejoining the coach at Dover we complete our homeward journey, arriving during the evening.
