The Best is Yet to Come…..Autumn Bliss with A&K Villas
The school holidays are over, the crowds have gone, the weather’s golden; what’s not to love about autumn in Europe?
Autumn is one of the best times to visit Europe. Once the children have gone back to school an air of tranquillity descends over the Continent. Far from the madding crowd, the skies are enamel blue. The sun shines. The ferocious heat of summer has mellowed. Pools are positively tepid; the sea is warm, the beaches have lost their frenetic atmosphere and best of all, there are some stunning offers available at A&K’s luxury villas.
There’s also a packed calendar of cultural and culinary events Europe-wide, including religious celebrations, homages to autumn harvests and art and music festivals of the highest order.
Provence, for example, puts on a spectacular series of festivities in October to mark the grape harvest, as well as tantalising food and wine fairs to savour delicious local produce. In Avignon there is an outstanding annual Blues Festival and Parcours d’Art, a visual arts extravaganza showcasing work by 30 artists throughout the town. Waltz of the Aces in Valreas is another visual tour de force, seeing streets transformed into stages and circus venues effervescing with brilliant and imaginative performances.
Olive oil aficionados will be in heaven in Tuscany’s Certaldo, where the first press of olive oil, wine and local produce are feted in style with artisans practising their skills, street performances and feasting of a bacchanalian order. In Perugia, the answer to every chocoholic’s prayer is the madness of Eurochocolate, whilst those of a more genuinely religious bent will be mesmerised by September’s Volto Santo in Lucco, with its compelling holy processions and mediaeval traditions.
The Spanish spirit of fiesta comes to the fore in Majorca over the first weekend of October. Fira d’Alcudia is a three day flourish of all things local including live music, equestrian spectacles, parades, parties, wine and food, glorious food. During the first two weeks of September, Rei de Jaume celebrates the conquest of the Moors with fireworks, foam parties and revelry of all sorts whilst the Algaida Fair is a flamboyant agricultural, food and craft fair rolled into one.
To complement such extravagant celebrations, A&K Villas’ autumn offers are equally enticing.
