“The highlight was the stay at the Almadraba Park Hotel. The attitude of all staff was wonderful and the standard of catering excellent. The journeys from and to St Pancras were very tiring although I appreciate they were forced on GRJ by changes to the train schedules. Years ago we travelled from Avignon to St Pancras changing at Lille. The TGV bypassed Paris and the connection at Lille was quite short. The transit of Paris is always a drag.
