Does anyone have any hotel suggestions for Andermatt to Como?


Les, The Radison is good, But expensive at around £200 a night. The Chedi is the best but super silly money at £600 a night.

(I may be a little anal here) but Is it possible to have a daily schedule, then we can all book the various suggested hotels, without having to double check if we are staying one night or two nights somewhere or if it gets amended and we miss a post..... and then is it possible to make it a sticky somewhere so we don't scroll and pick up the wrong information ... 😎

I'm still waiting to hear back from the Hotel Henry.  

 

Les - some confusion, the hotel on Gillian's website and the one I've stayed at is the Belvedere at Argegno (they seem to have provided the prices you've posted here.) However, the link you've attached to this post is to the Belvedere in Bellagio - a different place, although still on Lake Como!!
Wouldn't want you to end up with half your friends in a different place..... Regards, Dave

BTW,
I’ve been approached by the chaps who organise a charity version of the north coast 500 as they are organising a similar trip to Monza at the same time and have asked if they could tag along or meet up and travel with others after the race. 

Their website is  http://gfizz.co.uk

I’m happy to go along with whatever you chaps want to do, but with 17 of us already I think this is best suited for members who want to continue in a group after the race.

Like M500 I fancy travelling back through the Black Forest via Baden Baden followed by a day blasting through Germany and using the Vanquish as it should be (the French have really killed any fun on a long drive). As I'm from oooop North I'll get the overnight Ferry from Rotterdam to Hull on the way back and miss the tedious drive up from Dover. Probable work a way to visit some of the Museums Steve has mentioned in Germany.


I can thoroughly recommend this having done it a couple of times now in different cars  ðŸ‘

Wow, not been on here for a while and some have been busy getting this trip off the ground

I was hoping for my wife to join me on this one but that will not be possible as my daughter starts secondary school in the first week of Sep-2020 ðŸ™ 

There are two additional races foe next season which may require some schedule shuffling to fit them in. Does anyone have confirmation that the race will remain first weekend Sept?


Is the intention to be at Monza for qually or is the plan to arrive at the circuit later on the Sunday?


Sorry for all the questions

Le Cep in Beaune looks very impressive but a bit expensive, Henry2 would suit me. Have rung twice but no reply.

I’m for Henry II. Trying to keep costs down a bit so I can extend the trip to include the Stelvio and onto Eagles Nest.
