We start with a local departure for our journey via the cross Channel ferry to the Continent. From here we make our way to our hotel. From here we make our way to our hotel – Hof Van Putten. This top class hotel nestles amongst trees in a park like setting. The centre of the village and the woods are only 5 minutes walk away. All rooms are well appointed and features include a restaurant and bar.
On day 2 we visit bustling Amsterdam with its handsome tall gabled buildings, narrow tree-lined streets and tiny bridges interlaced by hundreds and hundreds of canals. There are colourful markets, exciting shops and endless cafes and bars.
On day 3 we take you through the Dutch countryside, past windmills, canals and bulb fields en route to the dazzling Keukenhof Gardens, (admission included). In the centuries old castle park you will see thousands of flowers. There are a whopping 6 million bulbs blooming every year to form a sea of flowers. As well there are water displays, flowering shrubs, floral works of art, themed gardens and pavilions packed with flower arrangements.
On day 4 we take you to Bruges – which is renowned the world over for its network of canals, churches, elegant houses, leafy lanes, squares and tiny cobbled streets. From here we continue our return journey, arriving back during the evening.
