14 Day Itinerary

  • Dec 22:

    Local departure by coach or Home Connect service, then to the Paris area for an overnight stay.

  • Dec 23:

    Travel south to arrive on the Costa del Maresme for a ten-night stay.

    Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

  • Christmas Eve: Montserrat

    Join us on our excursion to Montserrat, known locally as the ‘serrated mountain’. We travel through the mountains north of Barcelona to the site of the famous Benedictine monastery. In 1025 the Abbot of Ripoli and Bishop of Vic officially founded the Monastery of Montserrat, and today there are around one hundred monks who are based here. They follow the Order of St. Benedict and can be distinguished from other orders of Monks by their philosophy – “that there is an importance to everything that every person is”.

    Montserrat Monastery means different things to different people and this is all reflected in its attractions. For many pilgrims to Montserrat it is an entirely spiritual experience. However, if you are not a religious person you will still find that there is a great deal of interest at Montserrat Mountain and Monastery. The chapels, beautiful Basilica and turbulent history make it a fascinating place to visit.

    Festivities begin this evening with a gala buffet including wine and cava (Spanish sparkling wine).

  • Dec 28: Barcelona

    Today we travel to the fascinating city of Barcelona, Spain’s second-largest city and one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. The city has a delightfully relaxed atmosphere – particularly along Las Ramblas, where you can join the locals casually strolling along the tree-lined walkway, perhaps stopping to enjoy the entertainment offered by the mime artists and musicians. Barcelona boasts many amazing buildings designed during the artistic explosion of Modernism – be sure to see the extraordinary Sagrada Familia, a very unconventional cathedral, which is still under construction now.

    Why not join our optional guided tour? Starting by coach, the tour takes you past many of the famous sights of the city. We finish the tour on foot at the bustling Las Ramblas, and from here you will be ideally situated to explore the ‘Barri Gotic’, or Gothic Quarter, where some of buildings date back to medieval and Roman times.
