Luxury travel tip, combine fitness with fun

Swing at BiarritzSimply Sunday. Keeping fit on the go is something I refer to again and again and I love it when I hear of ‘packages’ that combine fitness with the other good things of life. Stéphane Tillement owns Bordeaux-based Mauriac Voyages – apart from his other regular clients, he handles all the official travel for the two-yearly Vinexpo in Bordeaux (coming up in ten days’ time), and Vinexpo in Hong Kong.  At any time, he  welcomes connoisseurs who would like to stay first in Biarritz, where there is a choice of three prime golf courses.  You will stay at least one night at Hôtel Le Palais, Biarritz. Next, you move to Bordeaux to Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa, right in the town centre.  It, like Le Palais, is a Leading Hotel.  He can arrange for you to visit any châteaux you like, privately – he recently arranged a tasting of Ch d’Yquem vintages, at Ch d’Yquem of course, with Chinese food pairings.  Ah ha, fitness and fun…
