This new magical pre-Christmas break in the Scottish capital means staying in a stunning stately Georgian manor house in its own immaculate grounds, just a few minutes from the city centre. You’ll dine on delicious food (of course, this is Flavours), see the sights lit by twinkling festive lights, and sample a dram or two of fine single malt. Tempted?

Exclusively for our Amici, this luxurious Edinburgh escape will give you the chance to eat the best Scottish food, enjoy the finest accommodation in a spacious Grade-II listed house (fully fitted with all mod-cons, plus a piano and a snooker room) and catch up on Christmas shopping, if you like. Otherwise, simply enjoy Edinburgh’s attractions – from art galleries to castles.

You’ll return home relaxed and all set for the festive season having had a stimulating short holiday here with us in Edinburgh. And, as it’s Amici only, you’ll be with like-minded Flavours fans for a few days of tasty fun. ‘Slàinte!’ As we say up north.
