Village to Village from the South of France to Coastal Spain & Barcelona

Two distinct countries. Two unique cultures. Connected by the steps you take. The lush green of Provence to the crystalline Mediterranean waters of Costa Brava. The enchanting cobblestones of villages perchés to the white-walled fishing towns on Costa Brava’s seaside cliffs. When you're never far from sublime scenery, an exquisite wine and a delicious meal, life's troubles may just slip away. Enjoy the magic of two sun-soaked lands as you put one foot in front of the other.
