Luxury accommodation in a castle, Monselice, Italy
Memorable parts? The creation of a relaxing atmosphere - from sitting in wonderful gardens to chilling out in the pool to sitting in the amazing cellar wine bar. Tips? Kitchen facilities were impressive - useful as nearest restaurants a drive or cycle (tricky in the dark!) away. Local benefits? To some extent - local people ran the place. A limited vegetable patch was available for guests to use as they wished. Overall rating? Overall the staff and building really... (more)Jackie Hoare
From 90 - 130 per room per night
Cave hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey
Memorable parts? Everything was memorable, starting with the emails from Abdullah from the hotel whilst we were planning our trip, then the welcome we received on arrival at 11.00pm at night, the meal that had been prepared for us at that late hour, the rooms that we and our 2 friends stayed in, the amazing buffet breakfast each morning, Fathi the waiter who happily laid up a table for us on the terrace for dinner on warmer evenings & always emphasised that Gamirasu was our home, then there... (more)Sue Ivey
From 175 - 1200 per room per night
Wheelchair friendly holidays, Brittany, France
Memorable parts? I think the scenery on the Brittany coast, and a wonderful meal we had on our last day, plus some great visits to local artisan producers. Local benefits? Yes, we shopped in local shops and markets, and five of us travelled together in a relatively fuel-efficient car, using the ferry rather than flying. Overall rating? Going away was quite an undertaking as two of our party were over 90. We did quite a lot of forward planning, and Jacqui was tremendously helpful,... (more)Lis Burch
From 200 - 500 per week (sleeps 4)

Really enjoyed exploring this area of Britain, which I have never really explored before. Particularly liked Arundel Castle, and as for the breakfasts they were amazing. (more)Wendy Morris
This weekend was very relaxing for us. I believe you can make it even better with the local sport activities such as kite surf, sailing, etc... Probably for next time! (more)Marion Renoux

Pembrokeshire luxury barn accommodation in Wales
Memorable parts? Beautiful walks along the Pembrokeshire coast where we saw lots of wildlife including choughs, peregrine falcons and dolphins. Tips? Use the service provided to order your food before you arrive. It was wonderful and we didn't have to lug food all the way from London! Local benefits?
