Saturday 7th September Calais to Troyes La Forêt D'orient After meeting in Calais, we will set off together to The Foret d'Orient The Domaine de la Forêt d'Orient Logis Hotel Restaurant Spa & Golf. The hotel is one of those unique and singular places that offer much more than accommodation to their guests. It enjoys a very privileged location in the heart of the Parc Naturel Régional de la Forêt d’orient. Spend this first afternoon relaxing and maybe taking advantage of the superb indoor pool, luxuriating in the spa, or even taking a segway tour through the fantastic grounds. We will be staying here for the first two nights of the trip.

Sunday 8th September A Day to Relax This day is yours to enjoy as you wish. Join us for a tour of a Champagne house with a typical French lunch at a vineyard followed by a visit to the iconic former Formula 1 grandstand at Reims. Alternatively, explore the nearby city of Troyes, with its medieval old town featuring narrow, cobbled streets lined with colourful, half-timbered houses, mostly dating from the 16th century. Or stay and enjoy the hotel and its spa amenities. 

Monday 9th September Troyes to La Borde en Sologne La Borde en Sologne - Château & Spa Today we travel to a stunning Chateau, with extensive grounds surrounding this beautiful venue. It also features a historic courtyard, which is ripe for photo opportunities. Once again complete with Spa and situated approximately 40 minutes west of Tours. Dinner will be held in their beautiful tunnel which will be an unforgettable experience.

Tuesday 10th September La Borde en Sologne to Le Grand Pavillon Chantilly Le Grand Pavillon Chantilly Just 45 minutes from Paris, you benefit from an exceptional setting in this Spa Hotel in Chantilly located 5 minutes from the Château de Chantilly and close to the medieval town of Senlis. Follow the path lined with century-old trees with the Nonette River not far away; and little by little you soak up the rural and wonderfully calm atmosphere of this venue. We will end the tour with a dinner at this superb venue to reflect on the experiences gained on the tour.
