Lanzarote beach house, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Beautiful landscapes, excellent food! Great for a relaxing holiday. Tips? Hire a car to explore the island, there is lots to see, from beaches to the national park, it's well worth it! Local benefits? Yes, particularly if you stay at the Finca de Arrieta, they are environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent holiday, great chance to recharge for the rest of the year! (more)Lila Caballero
From €925 - €1225 per accommodation per week
Beach and diving holiday in Sardinia, Italy
Memorable parts? The snorkelling and attention from the operator made the holiday, not to mention the pristine waters. (more)Chris Brown
From €280 - €630 excluding flights
Cirali villa holiday in Turkey
We loved Cirali and our hosts who were welcoming and kind. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to others. (more)Lucy Zaboklicka
It is a delightful oasis hidden off the main road in the off-the-beaten-path town of Cirali. (more)Juli Gammon
We are going back - that says it all! The freedom our 2 boys (18 months and 3 yrs) had both at the house and Cirali in general was the best bit. Running about in the beautiful garden, with the chickens, finding eggs to go with their (delicious!)breakfast. (more)Nisha Vasavda
From £700 - £1030 per couple per week
Villa holiday in Kas, Turkey
You'd be hard-pressed to find a holiday better than this (more)Emily Hunka
Very good and hugely relaxing...the most memorable part was diving off the rocks into the sea first thing each morning and the views from the bedroom windows across the sea. (more)anna bradley
A Fabulous rest in a beautiful setting, but still always something to do if you wanted. (more)jane edwards
From £400 - £1250 per villa per week
Lanzarote self catering cottage in the Canary Islands
We expected the finca to be lovely but it far exceeded our expectations. The Garden Cottage was perfect for a couple who wanted privacy but still all the facilities of the shared areas...Excellent! (more)Helen Wilson
Fantastic! Whilst we were there most of the other guests were couples with young children but as a childless couple we were catered for just as perfectly. The finca is a beautiful place, the owners are friendly and helpful, can't praise it enough! (more)Lisa Carver
Great experience, wonderful hosts and beautiful surroundings... (more)Sarah Slade
From €665 - €910 per week (sleeps 4)
Ephesus holiday cottages with B&B, Turkey
Wonderful; a great mix of culture and relaxation. Every day was packed with fantastic recommendations from the owners, custom made for us and our interests. (more)Bev Taylor-Wade
We loved the house where we stayed. It was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed for our comfort., including air- conditioning in the bedroom and a well-equipped bathroom. (more)Trish Hayes
A wonderful experience! Made us all reflect on who we are and how we live at home. Grapevine Cottage felt immediately like a good place to be, safe, relaxed, comfortable and incredibly beautiful. It was nice to be together. (more)Liz Glover
From £135 - £185 per cottage per night
Yurt holiday accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
The most memorable part was watching my daughter see the stars for the first time! Zero light pollution! Also, I was so surprised by how much there was to do on the island. Nice to wake up each day and know it was going to be sunny and dry! (more)Angellique Sunter
We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. (more)Michelle Christensen
Absolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great holiday. (more)Kate Macnab
From €1085 - €1470 per accommodation per week
Family holiday to Thailand, jungles and islands
As our first holiday in Asia it was fantastic. Our guide was so friendly and helpful we really didn't have to do anything but have a great time! (more)Alison Hatchman
10 out of 10...my favourite parts were tube riding on the river and swimming in the beautiful clear water in Koh Talu (more)Francoise Harris
The three days trekking in Nan province was certainly the most memorable part of our holiday. Highlights included the market across the street from the hotel selling a wide range of "interesting" live produce. (more)John Caswell
From £1300 excluding flights
Lanzarote villa holiday, Fishermans Cottage, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Arriving at Fisherman’s Cottage and seeing the wonderful location. Tips? It's not a holiday destination for clubbers. If you want a few days relaxation by the sea come to fisherman’s cottage. Local benefits? We shopped in the local supermarket and ate out locally. The cottage was totally solar powered with 'green' loos. So yes to both. Overall rating? 10 out of 10. It was so much better than I expected. Jill and Maria were both lovely and friendly.... (more)Laura Whelan
From €805 - €1155 per week (sleeps 4)
Holiday retreat in Greece, Saronic Islands
A great holiday, very relaxing. (more)Niamh O Conghaile
The important factor for us was that the accommodation is a family-run business and it works well. (more)Peter Gander
If you want a quiet, restful holiday where you can read, walk, swim, eat good food, watch the ferries come to and fro and generally chill out, this is for you. (more)Victoria Gunn
From €54 - €116 per room per night
Polis, Cyprus villa & hotel accommodation
This has been the 3rd visit to this hotel. Definitely will return. A*. (more)Mike Biggs
Watching the sunset from the terrace of my room. Excellent view, great location., good local food. (more)Georgina Alexander
Excellent. A really relaxing break - I hope to make a return trip. Very encouraging to see a smaller-scale family hotel; well-organised, clean, comfortable, friendly and beautiful, with a positive impact on its local environment. (more)Judy Powell
From €70 - €115 per double room per night
