Enjoying the spring flowers of Provence on our trip to the Verdon.

We love spring!

The winter is over and the amazing alpine flowers are fast appearing from under their snowy winter blanket. It’s a time of year when the skis are put away and the walking gear resurfaces from under the stairs. Spring is also when we head south to our bases in Tuscany, Italy and the Verdon Gorge, in France which is Europe’s version of the Grand Canyon.

Celebrating our 9th year walking with 'Coreconcept' in Tuscany.

Both these locations are perfect for both spring and autumn as they are generally too hot in high summer to be hiking or running. We’ve just finished trips in both Tuscany and the Verdon, and are now taking bookings for our September trips to these areas. They really are stunning locations and the autumn colours give as much enjoyment as the spring flowers!
