Food and wine holidays

At Footprint we help you to fully enter into a country’s true food and drink culture. Our local guides know the best restaurants and watering holes so that you don’t have to take ‘pot luck’ and they will introduce you to the establishments where the car park is filled with local’s cars rather than tour buses. Dependent on time of year, country and itinerary chosen, your Footprint holiday can include pasta making, helping with the grape harvest, hunting for truffles, cookery lessons, wine, olive oil and local speciality tastings, olive harvesting and more!

That’s not to say you will be rushed from place to place. You choose how much or how little you want to do and we will then arrange it. It’s important to relax and feel at home so we arrange your accommodation at smaller, family run hotels and B&B’s where you will be warmly welcomed as a guest.

So how about a simple pizza and a glass of ‘vino della casa’ in Italy? Or a spread of Corsican ‘Charcuterie ‘with some of the local wines that are excellent value but rarely seen abroad? A bowl of ‘Bouillibasse’ overlooking the Med, with a glass of Provencal rose? Or an authentic ‘Choucroute garnie’ in Alsace, washed down with some Gewurtztraminer? We love talking about food and wines and are looking forward to helping you enjoy fantastic food and drink experiences throughout your holiday with us.
