  1. Are you wanting a religious pilgrimage site? Usually high-born English ladies didn’t go in for that sort of thing, as nearly all of them are Protestants. 🙂

    If you’re just talking about a health cure retreat, the south coast of France is a good place to look–though in 1805 they’re still recovering from the revolution I suppose. The main place that occurs to me is Bath, of course, but if you’re wanting something continental that’s no help….

  2. Women didn’t go too often to the continent–though there was that peace of 1802, it was already looking grim by ’04. Some did go, but most stayed at home and went to the seaside for health bathing, or to Bath.
