A day which begins with a visit to an awe inspiring classic French château and its gardens, moves on to a World Heritage Site Romanesque Abbey, and ends with discovering a refreshingly natural, English style garden. However, although the days are packed with interest, customers appreciate having time to fully enjoy each site, and to soak up the atmosphere at their own pace. With this in mind, sometimes half a day is devoted to just one site, in order to have time to linger awhile, and not be hurried.
