Early Spring in the Italian Dolomite Mountains as the meadows begin to fill with the vibrant colours of wildfloweras they awaken the landscape.

In early Spring the meadows at the foot of the Italian Dolomite Mountains begin to fill with the vibrant colours of wild flowers which, as the season unfolds, spread their magic awakening the landscape. The contrast between bright green flowering meadows and the stark white peaks makes for a spectacular sight.  But it’s not just the scenery that makes this holiday so special – the incredible included visits and the outstanding hospitality of our Italian hosts is second to none. With 4 course dinners including unlimited wine, an entertainment programme and a free bar each evening you are assured a relaxed, fun and friendly stay.


Sunday - Very early morning departure from Dorset via Eurotunnel crossing to France and onwards to Novotel Metz for dinner and overnight stay.

Monday - Continue south-easterly and cross into Italy and on to Fai della Paganella with a warm welcome from our hosts and glass of Prosecco on arrival. Settle in then enjoy a 4 course dinner. A Grolla evening* is hosted in the bar (brandy-coffee in sharing pots).

Tuesday - A free day to explore the village. Our host "Fausto" will escort a gentle walk and will provide a picnic lunch of traditional pizza and wine - to get you relaxed into the "Paganella way of life" in the mountains! Before dinner this evening you can partake of mulled wine*. After dinner a quiz/games*.

Wednesday - Visit Merano, one of Italy's best kept secrets in true "Sound of Music" fashion. A stunning spa town nestled in the Dolomite mountains and packed full of small shops and cafes oozing delicious pastries and strudel. For a bird's eye view take the chairlift up to the panoramic viewpoint. Later we follow the scenic "wine-route" to the historic winery of St. Michael Eppan for a tasting. The South Tyrolean wines are so good they don't export much!

Thursday - Tour through breathtaking mountain scenery to Moena, and on to the vibrant town of Canazai. From here its a short steep drive to the Sella Pass, an incredible viewing platform for the Dolomites in all their jagged beauty. Continue down the Gardena Valley, renowned for wood making traditions and an ancient language, Ladin - spoken only here. A short stop to enjoy the village of Ortisei, famous for strudel and hand-made cuckoo clocks. Before dinner there is a wine tasting*.

Friday - Taking in the scenic splendor of Lake Molveno and on to the better known Lake Garda. Stop in Riva del Garda with its historic lakeside town centre - time for lunch and maybe a short sightseeing boat cruise. Tonight at the hotel a farewell candlelit Trentino themed dinner with musical entertainment*.

Saturday - A fond farewell from our Italian hosts as we head homewards for overnight stop at Novotel Metz with dinner and breakfast.

Sunday - Through France to Calais for afternoon Eurotunnel crossing to UK and return to Dorset late that evening.
