When you're asked where do you want to go on vacation do you instantly think of a handful of countries all at once? Whoever asks that question can't possibly think you can only pick ONE country. So how can you explore a couple countries on the top of your bucket list all in one luxury travel experience? We've got it all covered in this one itinerary. Spain and France, oh la la!!Explore off the beaten path, discover enchanting medieval villages, and immerse yourself in two countries all in one vacation is what this 12-day itinerary encompasses all in one. This unique itinerary includes Les Plus Beaux Villages de France (also known as the most beautiful villages of France), plus the medieval villages of Costa Brava (pictured below). Get an authentic travel experience that goes off the beaten paths in Spain and France to find you the hidden gems your luxury travel concierges recommend. As you know, I'm a big believer in absorbing one country to enjoy the touristy things + enjoy the local and cultural things which is really hard to do in full days of touring. So normally I would recommend spending your vacation days in 'x' and save 'y' for next year. But we realize sometimes you just have too many things on your bucket list to not combine a few sometimes. And due to the logistics of this unique itinerary, you really could sample a bit of Southern France along with a taste of Spain.
