    Beauport Bay, St Brelade

    Host Report by Kathy Williams

    St. Brelades Bay Hotel, Jersey

    Set in the beautiful bay of St. Brelades and just 10 minutes from the airport, is the St. Brelades Bay Hotel. I can’t praise highly enough the service, food and facilities. Our first evening meal, accompanied by a complimentary glass of wine, was excellent as were all the meals. In fact, in my 19 years of running holidays with bridge this was the best food I have ever had.

    The hotel has 2 swimming pools, health centre, spa and lovely gardens - something for everyone.

  • News from the Bridge Room in Porec, Croatia


    Host report by Toby & Janette Mace

    The Valamar Diamant hotel is a scenic twenty-minute walk from the harbour town of Porec, through pretty landscaped gardens and pine trees (housing red squirrels) along the water’s edge. Porec has an impressive basilica overlooking the harbour, with Roman remains and a large floor mosaic. There’s also a rooftop bar on top of a squat old tower, with great views. Great for a sundowner (Aperol spritz if you’re asking).

    We organised three excursions, first driving to two hill towns to see how they had coped in very different ways with depopulation over the years. One is now an artists’ haven, and the other derelict and abandoned. The day ended with a typical Croatian meal, where we bought homemade produce – the grappa was pronounced to be very smooth! Mistletoe grappa is also a speciality.

  • News from the Bridge Room in Sardinia


    Host report by Barry & Maggie Watts

    The Greeks called it Hyknusa or Ichnussa (Ιχνουσσα), from the greek Ichnos (footprint of human foot) because of its similarity to a large footprint (how would they know?) Sardinia takes its name from the Latin (or Roman).

    Le Ginestre Hotel


    Sardinia, like many other parts of the Mediterranean, saw Phonecian, Carthaginian then Roman rule. However, its history is much longer than most. From Neolithic times the Nuragic civilisation lived on the island and the population today still includes 7,000 Nuraghe. In 1979 human remains were found that dated back to 150,000 BC.
