The Luxury Honeymoon Wine Experience, Provence showcases SmoothRed’s flair for creating trips of a lifetime for newlyweds. The new indulgent three-night wine break features a private airport transfer – with the option to upgrade to a helicopter – to La Réserve, a contemporary five-star hotel and spa, close to the glamorous resort of St Tropez and the beaches of the Côte D’Azur.
After a glass of Champagne on arrival, the happy couple can recuperate from the wedding, relaxing and enjoying the hotel and spa – a complimentary La Mer body treatment is included. The following day they will be whisked off for a full-day private tour of the Provençal vineyards, specialists in the production of rosé wines, including tastings at the famous Chateau Minuty estate and a boutique vineyard, and including a romantic gourmet lunch at La Verdoyante, overlooking St Tropez bay.
Perfect for foodies, The Gourmet Honeymoon – Luxury French and Spanish Collection, Bordeaux and San Sebastian is the ultimate gourmet experience, which allows honeymooners to tick off seven Michelin stars in six days. The holiday combines three nights in Bordeaux, touring the vineyards of Pomerol, St Emilion and the Medoc, with a two-night stay by the beach in San Sebastian.
Highlights include tasting tours at prestigious Cru Classé chateaux and dining at one of the world’s top restaurants, Arzak. Newlyweds are also treated to a Junior Suite at Les Sources de Caudalie, the famous vinotherapy spa hotel, surrounded by the lush vineyards of the neighbouring Château Smith Haut Lafitte.
“Many of our wine experience holidays suit honeymooners because of the special attention we pay to tailoring itineraries to suit individual preferences,” says Adam Stebbings, managing director of SmoothRed. “However, our Provence, and Bordeaux and San Sebastian luxury holidays both stand out because, as well as being romantic, they really have the extra wow factor.”
