Normandy Tour Sold Out

Isola Madre Lago Maggiore
Only 2 rooms left on Turin
Though we are obviously happy to have taken so many bookings, it is not so much fun disappointing travellers keen to book on tours already fully subscribed. Fortunately, for those too late to book the ‘Gardens of Haute-Normandie’, there are 2 further superb tours of French Gardens planned for early 2014: ‘Private Gardens of Provence’ and Gardens of the Côte d’Azur’ for those inspired by Monty Don’s memorable television series or who were already aware of the heady delights of France.

Italian garden tour destinations are by far the most attractive according to our travellers, so if you are interested in David Wheeler’s tour of the Gardens & Landscapes of Piedmont in May, you need to know that there are only 2 rooms available at time of writing. Don’t worry too much if you miss the boat: there is another wonderful tour of Italian gardens scheduled for June featuring waterborne visits to the gardens of Lakes Como & Maggiore with a few more rooms to sell just now.

 As soon as the early season tours are ready to go to press, Sue is away again, personally checking hotels & gardens planned for late season tours. Back just last week from Paris, Sue is off again to Venice and the Veneto, with another trip to Shropshire in November. We are aiming to get late season tour details landing on your doormats first post after Boxing Day, so details need to be finalised by early December; a tight schedule, but the fresh and unique quality of every Boxwood Tour requires personal selection and checking of every element, rewarded by the very positive comments received from travellers.
