Catalan horse riding holiday in Spain
We spent a lovely 6 days with Gareth and Fiona. The best bit was the communal meals and camaraderie between all the people staying there, whatever activity they were taking part in (more)Vanessa Richards
Hats off to Fiona and Gareth, they really got the formula of a home from home with the conveniences of a hotel spot on! Five star, definitely five star, every bit of it provided what my family, from 4 to 40 years old, needed for a perfect holiday. They gave us a list of great places to visit, they had horse riding just down the road where my daughter would spend the day there if she could! It is definitely a place we will go to again.

Catalonia family self guided cycling holiday, Spain
Wonderful holiday for active people who love nature and do not like tourist traps. (more)Dorine van der Vloodt
The most memorable part of the holiday was the 30k mountain bike ride that took in parts of the local scenery that would have remained unseen without the guidance and assistance of our host. (more)Mark Burberry
From €288.50 - €399.50 excluding flights
Sintra Natural Park accommodation in Portugal
We had a wonderful holiday at Colina Flora - the accommodation is beautiful, the swimming pool wonderfully refreshing, everything clean and beautifully decorated. (more)Caroline Rumble
This was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The location was beautiful and there were many moderate walking expeditions to be made in the area. Travel to Cascais and Sintra was straightforward using the local bus service. (more)Janet Dear
5 stars plus! A lovely B&B if you appreciate nature and love to walk. Accommodations and service are outstanding.Hosts very friendly and helpful. (more)Arlene Fleischman
From €80 - €110 per room per night
Andalucia self guided walking holiday, Spain
Fantastic and restful (more)Henrietta Naish
Just what we wanted. We used the local restaurants and bars, used the local taxi, shopped in the village. They are all very friendly and helpful but it does help if you speak a bit of the language. (more)Trev Liberson
The entire experience was delightful, and it would be too difficult to pick out any one aspect. We had a terrific time. (more)lin pattullo
From £350 excluding flights
Andalucia self catering accommodation, Almeria, Spain
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
This was our first proper holiday in Spain. Discovering the diverse and stunning richness of Andalusia was a daily joy. The landscape and views are breath taking, the people are warm, funny and kind and the range of things to do is broad. (more)Rachel Bhageerutty
From £350 per week (sleeps 2)
Carmarthenshire self catering cottage in Wales
We had a great time - relaxing, some beautiful experiences (beaches, hills, islands and all the above animals). We were in bed every night by 9.30pm - tired but blissfully comfortable after a day spent exploring. (more)Jayne Obeng
Perfect!....The best thing about the holiday was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a holiday should be. (more)Kirstin Robertson
From £275 - £450 per cottage per week (sleeps 4)
Catalonia family activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? Staying in a welcoming and comfortable hotel in a beautiful part of Spain, with delightful hosts, and masses of available activities. Tips? Stay at here, it's great. Local benefits? Yes, all of the above. We booked several activities with local companies and ate in local restaurants. We were able to travel extensively by bike rather than car. Overall rating? Excellent. We have all returned fit, healthy and happy. (more)Mary Anne Roffs
From €720 excluding flights
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
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
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)

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
It was an unexpected delight. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody. (more)Lisa Kirkhope
From £290 - £615 excluding flights

Leave your toys and books at home!! Everything you need for a couple of weeks is already there. (more)Robert Bradley
Amazing. A lovely cottage with lovely owners who couldn't do enough to help. We received a lovely warm welcome. The cottage was immaculate. Everything had been thought of. (more)Kathryn Rawlinson
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

This is a really beautiful part of Spain as its all hills and valleys...visiting the Alhambra was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)kay scoresby
From €95 - €135 per house per night
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...

Nice and relaxing...The view from the cottages was the most memorable part. (more)Natasha Sawyer
The most memorable part of the holiday was exploring Spain with my two children and seeing them learn to swim in the pool with the most amazing views...We are planning on going again next summer. (more)Sophie Kramhψft
From €65 - €95 per house per night
Algarve holiday cottages, Portugal
Very relaxing holiday, felt at home and relaxed the whole time, as villas enclosed in a walled area felt children could wander around as they liked without worry, the owners of the villas were lovely and felt more like family when we left, although never intrusive. (more)Patricia Raistrick
The whole experience was fantastic - the cottage are beautiful and so well equipped. (more)Anne Fleming
Just a nice relaxing environment that's good for kids and still within easy reach of the local town....Good break, relaxing environment, nice people.. (more)Karl Atton
