It is with the greatest of pleasure to share with you, Elegant Estates & Magnificent Gardens, taking place in a country very close to my heart. The joy of traveling and exploring new areas of the United Kingdom has been a passion of mine for many years. My own experiences have created a wealth of knowledge that I intend to share with you during this unforgettable tour.
Each hotel, country house, restaurant or experience has been carefully selected to ensure that our time together is memorable from start to finish. Not just memorable, but special and unique.
Apart from the enjoyment of England’s best stately homes, travelers will be exploring many of the nation’s finest gardens, and staying at some wonderful hotels, including Hartwell House in Buckinghamshire – where you will dine privately in the magnificent Doric Dining Room, frequently used by King Louis XVIII, the exiled King of France – during his 5 years of living at Hartwell House. In recent years, Hartwell House has become a favorite spot for celebrities including frequent overnight stays by former President Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and the Sultan of Brunei.
In my book, traveling is about creating a blend of unique and memorable experiences, paired with delicious meals and superior accommodations. In this tour travelers can be assured of the combination of all three – alongside my personal touches, which will ensure your enjoyment of the entire experience.
Throughout the tour, please feel free to regard me as your personal England concierge. I have an absolute passion for all things English, so I’ll be very happy to recommend unique experiences during your free time.
I do hope you will join us for this memorable tour, where we will explore together, the very best of England!
