    “ Gut vorbereitet ”

    On the 2021-06-13 by Judith
    Eine wunderschöne Tour. Alles war von den Veranstalterinnen bestens vorbereitet und hat prima geklappt. Vor allem die Hotels in Quiberon und Le Palais waren sehr schön und das Essen dort war sehr gut. Wir fanden es sehr angenehm, nicht jeden Tag das Hotel wechseln zu müssen.

    “ Morbihan ”

    On the 2020-09-19 by Criou
