Yoga retreats in Andalucia, Spain
The best thing I have ever done, so so glad that I did it. (more)Josie Korda
I will and have recommended this retreat to friends. I returned to work feeling refreshed and committed to making this feeling of health and inner peace last! (more)Stephanie Jones
I can not rate this retreat highly enough.The effort that is made to make sure everyone's level of yoga practice is accommodated and everyone is included. The attention to small details that make the whole experience one of healing, learning, happiness and joy. I left feeling energised, rested, optimistic about the future and re-engaged with my yoga practice and my health. (more)Alison Pomfret
From €649 - €1149 excluding flights
Snowdonia self catering accommodation, Wales
The cottage was everything we could have hoped for and was very cosy with some of the best views of mount Snowdon we could have imagined. (more)Craig Colclough
I would recommend this type of holiday to all my friends. Holidays were great! (more)vera schembri
...had a truly transformational effect on our twin boys. A stunningly beautiful location and very comfortable cottage...our best ever family holiday. (more)Philip Burston
From £325 - £425 per cottage per week (sleeps 4-5)
Andalucia self catering accommodation, Almeria, Spain
The village and the walks among the hills provided a great sense of adventure for two elderly people who hadn't expected to be able to enjoy so much sun and exercise. (more)Tricia Evans
Great experience meeting local people. Rated fantastic. (more)Eurwyn Owen
The holiday was truly relaxing with good accommodation and great hosts. Great local food (Tapas mainly) at remarkably low prices and friendly, welcoming local people. (more)Lionel Patterson
From £399 per week (sleeps 2)
Algarve holiday accommodation
Allow yourself time to just hang-out at the quinta. It's so relaxing and there are plenty of places to sit/lie while reading yet another good book. A true possibility to stop life for a bit. (more)Kerstin Lindley-Jones
We spent 10 nights and it was all really great, friendly and helpful hosts and beautiful, clean accommodation. (more)Jayne Ross
100%. Exactly what we as a family of three generations, age range from almost 3 to 71, were looking for. The freedom to wander their land, pick oranges, lemons and apricots. The beautiful swimming pool with a natural rock surround which all three generations used every single day. The meals were superb and the service outstanding. (more)Patricia Brenchley
From €45 - €190 per accommodation per night
Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
We really felt that we got to know this area of southern Spain thanks to our hosts. Really great time. We'd love to go back. (more)Laura Greenman
You couldn't ask for a more idyllic location, or more welcoming hosts. Shane met us at the villa when we arrived and gave us a quick run through the basics, while Bea would always let us know when she was around to water the plants (twice during the week), a much appreciated sign of the type of consideration they show towards their guests. (more)David Mervik
The peaceful setting, serene surroundings and the warm and gracious hospitality of our hosts, Shane and Bea, are our fondest memories. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left, two weeks later, we rarely thought of our hectic, fast-paced life back home. (more)Nancy Lipson
From €999 - €1575 per accommodation per week
Mercantour Park self catering gite, France
Excellent. We travelled with young family and would certainly stay again so cannot recommend it too highly. (more)ROSIE KELBRICK
A really worthwhile and memorable holiday: the self guided walks were well planned and gave us a great idea of the locality; the food was very good and the garden(s) excellent for relaxing on our days off. We were given a very warm welcome and a friendly stay. (more)Jon Nay
Amazing 360 degree views on the walks in the Maritime Alps and the relaxed but informative approach of our guide Mel. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped and the food which was prepared by Liz was delicious and varied. (more)Cathy Wiggins
From £420 per week (sleeps 2)
France gite accommodation, Mercantour, sleeps 6
It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
The Alpes-Maritimes and Mercantour National Park is a fantastic area to visit and we would consider this to be one of our best holidays. (more)Lourdes Roffey
We loved the autumn walking in the Parc du Mercantour, in fact our walk to the Lac de Negre was probably the prettiest walk we have ever done. (more)Mary Dracup
From £420 per accommodation per week
Isle of Wight self catering accommodation, England
Stunning walks and cycling from our cottage doorstep was ideal. The cottage itself was amazingly appointed and had everything we needed. (more)Louise Parkinson
This is our second time (in as many years) at the granary and we love the village. (more)Lucia Whalley
Our lovely cottage was kitted out with everything you could wish for...It is a lovely cottage if you want some lovely walks and near to most things if you want to drive. We loved it. (more)Sue Adams
From £375 - £785 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Loire Valley self catering farm cottage, France
Five stars for getting the right amount of things done & rest. The countryside is beautiful, the gite and courtyard were lovely, the hosts wonderful and the chateaux have to be seen at least once in a lifetime. (more)Ilinca Anghelescu
It was the perfect family holiday with a 15 month old. With 3 separate cottages all surrounding one courtyard, it provides the perfect place for a shared family holiday, but still giving you your own space to retreat to! (more)Becky Reid
Despite some inclement weather on a few days, it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We didn't want to leave. We would love to get back in the near future. (more)Valerie Guihen
From €560 - €700 per cottage per week (sleeps 2-4)
Maasai Mara safari camp in Kenya
Memorable parts? Arriving in the village - the warmth of the welcome, the pleasure of staying in a manyatta (mud hut). Also the activities are wonderful - walks amongst the zebra, milking cows, firing bows and arrows, lighting fires. Really good fun!! Tips? I went for 4 nights - 2 in the camp and 2 in the village. The camp is great - paraffin lamps, good food and comfy beds. You can get the lie of the land and start to get to know your hosts. But don't miss out on staying in the village... (more)Helena Smith
From US $70 per person per night
Dordogne self catering accommodation

The whole holiday was a relaxed and stress free experience beginning with travelling from the UK by train to the lovely surroundings and cosy cabin... It was a wonderful relaxed holiday, lovely setting, very friendly and helpful owners. (more)Birgitte Bruun
From €650 - €900 per week (sleeps 2)

We all had a brilliant time and I can't thank Alan and Vivian enough for the warm welcome we received and the thoughtfulness they demonstrated while we were there. They are super hosts and really did think of everything we might have needed. (more)Jane Edwards

The cabins are fully equipped and a lot of thought was put in every detail...The atmosphere and being able to spend private quality time with my family was the best part of the holiday. (more)sari ziv

Simply the best one ever spent on the Island and it was the 15th trip!...The most memorable part was walking across the Tennyson trail - fantastic views! There's some gorgeous coves etc off the main tourist areas. (more)Mrs Pamela Hill

Loire Valley self catering accommodation
Memorable parts? Everything! We loved being surrounded by historic French villages; staying in a beautiful rustic (but VERY comfortable) 19th century stone cottage; the warmth and approachability of our hosts Nicole and Alex Crawford; and being spoilt for choice when arranging our daily activities. We went for lovely long walks; visited outdoor markets; ate wonderful, good value food at local restaurants; explored castles, chateaus and other historic sites; people-watched from snug, friendly...
