Welcome to Plantation Country! Here in White Castle, dotted with sugar cane plantations, you’ll enjoy a relaxing stay on the delightful Nottoway estate, where a striking antebellum mansion set among lush grounds serves up tasty local Creole dishes. You can choose to take a guided tour of the house’s lavish rooms, where marble fireplaces and opulent décor are the norm. Be sure to try the chicken and sausage jambalaya before you leave. Delicious!

Day 5


Immerse yourself in Civil War history in Natchez, high up on the banks of the Mississippi River, where antebellum mansions are two a penny. Take a look around the largest octagonal house in The USA, Longwood, or tour the town in a traditional horse-drawn carriage. Further afield, why not try the Natchez Trace Parkway, a historic route stretching 444 miles to Nashville. You won’t have time for all of it, but drive a small section to see the plentiful historic sites and beautiful rural scenery.
