Via email: a booklover’s winter holiday:
An opportunity to getaway to the beautiful forested Catalan hills and spend time in a Baronial 16th century mansion at Garrotxa, near Girona, Feb 28th – March 2nd 2008. Walks and talks by day and snug evenings of gourmet food and cosy fireside tales. The idea of the weekend is to bring people together in comfortable surroundings and provide a convivial atmosphere with the opportunity for people to meet & converse, perhaps sharing their favourite (or own) stories.
