  Guided & Independent Walking Holidays   Where the experience is everything 2015  W   elcome to the 2015 edition of our Walking Holidays Brochure. There's a new look, with some additions we hope will help you to choose the perfect walking holiday for you. New for 2015  is a wonderful walk through the medieval bastides  of rural Tarn , where each village is a step back in time. Another new holiday explores the hill-top villages of the Luberon  in Provence, an area blessed with great weather, food and scenery. For those after sea views, we have a new walk along the best sections of Brittany's Emerald Coast and our self guided holiday in the Baume Massif and Calanques Nation-al Park (cover photo) on the Mediterranean coast has been amended to concentrate on the amazing French fjords. We have also made some improvements to our spectacu-lar Alpine holiday in the Vercors with a walk encircling the stunning Mont Aiguille. To squeeze more into the new brochure, we've omitted our cycling holidays , which can still be viewed online and in a separate brochure on request. Also excluded are a few self-guided UK holidays and some destinations where we can run guided walks for private groups or clubs, details of all these are on our website.    W  elcome to High Point Holidays  Where the Experience is Everything C󰁯󰁶󰁥󰁲 󰁰󰁨󰁯󰁴󰁯: C󰁡󰁬󰁡󰁮󰁱󰁵󰁥󰁳 For those new to High Point Holidays, we hope you will enjoy browsing our variety of walking holidays ranging from gentle strolls through beautiful vineyards to challenging mountain treks.

Most evening meals are 4-course set menus taken in your guest house where you’ll get to try srcinal and delicious dishes. Meals in the B&B’s are great experiences, where you share your table with your hosts and other travellers that may be staying in the guest house. You will enjoy a convivial evening with great food, washed down by the local wine. Breakfasts are also the occasion to discover the local specialities. Depending on the particular guesthouse and the culinary inspiration of your host, you'll enjoy home-made jams and pastries, fresh farmhouse bread, local cheeses and dairy products, and regional cold meats. If picnic lunches are included in your holiday, they are usually supplied by your hosts and will take different forms depending on the holiday. Home-made quiches, salads, pasta dishes or sandwiches using fresh local produce. Small guest houses, big welcome   Our choice of guest houses is synonymous with High Point's philosophy. We use small independent guest houses, often set in magnificent surroundings, with their own unique character. Chosen for the friendliness of the hosts as well as their charm and quality. Whether it's showing you around their historic property, or a visit to their cellar to try the wine from their vineyard, they will take great pleasure in making your stay extra special and may provide you with some useful tips for your following day's activities.  The huge plus factor for me was the opportunity to stay with a family. It was a unique chance to stay in a private home, share a meal with the hosts and chat about all manner of things. We felt part of the country, and not just that we were skimming the surface. We were delighted and amazed we got on so well with people. Local produce, regional dishes, home cooking all contributed. In general the holiday fulfilled all our expectations and provided much more! J Kay, UK Overwhelmed by the level of hospitality received. We have walked with other companies in France but this was by far the best. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. S Adkins, UK ur walking holidays have been designed to let you enjoy the best a region has to offer, avoiding, where possible, main tourist routes. We choose destinations where distinct local identity thrives and in France, with its astonishing regional variety, you'll discover these differences in culture, history, architecture, wildlife, landscapes and food. We aim to make you feel part of the local way of life with our choice of small guest houses. We look for traditional guest houses in beautiful surroundings, where a personal, friendly service is guaranteed and where great authentic local food and drink is on offer. O Fabienne and Pascale at the Villa Toscana, Beaujolais   Located in an elevated position and surrounded by vines in the heart of the Beaujolais, Villa Toscana is a charming 19th century former wine making property. Situated within the beautiful area of 'Little Tuscany', so called due to its similarly eye-catching land-scape. After a hard days walking you can relax in their garden or use their outdoor pool. Meals are generous traditional family-style creations with local wine. The rooms are tastefully decorated all in individual styles and all ensuite. Customer Comments on Villa Toscana: Our favourite guest house was Villa Toscana - Fabienne and Pascal were both lovely and made us very welcome both nights. Villa Toscana was the best for welcome, food, room, packed lunch, etc. Mr & Mrs C Clark, UK   House and food and hosts were excellent. M Pervis, Australia. Room was large and well decorated; liked sitting room; food was fabulous. J Barry, USA   Book now on 01747 858 229 or visit www.highpointholidays.co.uk 4
