Contrast the cultures of France, Spain and Portugal

In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport. 

Chef, author and television personality, Julia Child

France is a nation of food lovers and its food culture is world famous. Set sail on this 12-night cruise and contrast the dishes and great variety of wine which define France with those of Spain and Portugal. Beginning at Montoir, from where you can visit the beautiful Loire Valley and medieval Angers, perhaps you’ll opt for a wine tasting session and traditional lunch in the wine-producing estate of Brissac-Quincé Castle.

An overnight stop in Bordeaux provides the perfect opportunity to sample the famous Bordeaux appellations of the Médoc wine route, treat yourself to delicious cuisine at a world-renowned restaurant and take a stroll along what is arguably one of Europe’s finest waterfronts.

In Spain take the opportunity to tuck into tapas, walk along the magnificent Roman walls of Lugo and drink wine from a bowl in Pontevedra. When in Portugal, taste the delicious port wine of Oporto or volunteer for gardening duties at the fragrant fields and nurseries of Cantinho das Aromaticas. Your cruise, which will be enhanced by our on-board VIP guest chef and wine expert, also includes a visit to the island of Guernsey with its beguiling fusion of French and English culture.
