Select Little Trains Of The Pyreness
12 Day Select Holiday
Based in a pretty little pueblo called Roses that stretches between the sea and mountains on Spain’s Costa Brava. Relax on the beautiful beaches or hop aboard a pleasure cruiser around the rocky coastline. A former Greek colony, you’ll find evidence of the ancient city as well as a natural marina with a network of canals. Holiday highlights include our trip on the Little Yellow Train of the Pyrenees, one of the great railway journeys of the world where the track winds through leafy forests, past gushing streams and upwards to the mountain village of Font Romeu. On another day, we hop aboard the distinctive red and white Train du Pays Cathare et du Fenouilledes – a must do tourist railway trip that takes you deep into the verdant heart of the Pyrenees.
