"There is something about the holiday that stayed in our minds for many weeks, even writing about it we get a little emotional – it was wonderful and was enhanced by our Silver Service crew."

We have enjoyed several wonderful holidays travelling on Legers Silver Service, so we decided to book the ‘Splendours of the Algarve’ because it is somewhere we have never visited before and it also gave us an opportunity to experience parts of Spain we would not otherwise see.
After travelling down to Portsmouth we boarded the Brittany Ferry ‘Pont Aven’. Once settled into our 2 berth cabin we went and explored the ferries facilities and then had an evening meal in one of the restaurants. The next morning after breakfast we had all day to relax. Up on the deck we sat in the sun and joined a group of Dolphin watchers! The following day we made our way down to Salamanca where we stayed for the night. It is a beautiful and historic university city, full of ancient buildings and individual shops.
Our six night stay at the 4* Tivoli Hotel in Carvoeiro, Portugal, is in an amazing setting, built into the rocks with a wonderful view of the sea – where there is a large cave on the beach below. The hotel has excellent facilities, a good choice of food and our bedroom was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly making our stay there very relaxing. All the excursions during our stay in Portugal were very different with many interesting places to visit and each day we had a tour guide who was very knowledgeable. We were sad to leave Carvoeiro as we had such a good time there.
After a good breakfast we moved up through Spain to Toledo, which we explored before our overnight stay.The next day we travelled onwards through the Basque region where we stopped off for a break at Burgos, something we will never forget. The buildings and architecture were fantastic. As we walked around the town we kept finding small back streets leading to ancient squares. That evening we booked into our hotel St Jean de Luz, France,. And then made a short walk into the town for a meal in one of the many restaurants where we were joined by two friends we had made on the holiday. St Jean de Luz is also a place which has left us with a lot of happy memories of our holiday.
There is something about the holiday that stayed in our minds for many weeks, even writing about it we get a little emotional – it was wonderful and was enhanced by our Silver Service crew, Caroline and Kevin, whose experience made every part of our adventure a comfortable and relaxing holiday.
In the past few years we have travelled with Leger to a number of fantastic destinations including Lake Como, The islands of Corsica and Sardinia, Fire and Ice Italy and Austria and Croatia. ON these tours we have made friends with a number of people and have kept in touch and met up with some of them. We always believe that a holiday is not only places you stay and visit but also the people you meet on your tour. Thank you Leger for all you do.
