THREE COUNTRIES TOUR
Take a tour today through three countries with a local English speaking guide - Andorra, Spain and France. In the morning, you cross the border into Spain, to La Seu d'Urgell, one of the most historically important towns in the Catalan Pyrenees with beautiful Romanesque buildings dating to the 11th century. Tuesday is Market Day so pick up a bargain or two. Drive on to visit the riverside town of Puigcerda, set on the border with France, with free time for lunch. This afternoon, continue via Mont Louis with its UNESCO world Heritage listed city walls before making a brief stop at the French Pyrenees ski resort of Font Romeu. Return to the hotel in Andorra.
DAY 5 - Depart Andorra La Vella this morning for the drive back into France to the ancient walled city of Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997. The fairytale-like citadel, complete with drawbridges, cobbled streets, turrets and zigzag battlements, La Cité is many people's idea of the perfect medieval castle. You will have the afternoon at leisure to explore this medial gem and with your overnight hotel, 3* Ibis Styles Carcassonne La Cité, just 300m from the city walls, you may like to venture back into the town later this evening when the crowds have dispersed and you can really appreciate its medieval charm. The hotel also features an outdoor pool. Set dinner, bed and breakfast.
DAY 6 - Time to bid farewell to Languedoc Roussillon, this lovely region as you board your coach to head northward to your overnight stop. Bed & breakfast.
DAY 7 - Back to Calais and the return ferry crossing to Dover, arriving home during the evening.
