Learn to dive in Sardinia, Italy
One of the most memorable parts of my trip was a snorkelling excursion along the Golfo di Orosei. Along the way, as we sailed past all the stunning beaches and caves, Cinzia gave us plenty of information about the geography and nature along the coast, but all in a very humorous and fun way. Once in the crystal clear water we were lucky enough to see a couple of weird and wonderful creatures. (more)Christine Morton
Brilliant scenery, great underwater wildlife and quiet roads. Cala Garone is absolutely idyllic in October. (more)Ann Windle
The diving was very flexible and went at our pace. I'd go back again - I'm hoping to finish some more advanced diving courses there. (more)Eimear Monaghan
From 410 - 830 excluding flights
Long weekend cooking in Italy
The most memorable parts were: the people, being welcomed by a family (and the incredible 'mater familias' Assuntina), the scenery, the view from my room, the cooking, the food. (more)Marga Peters
The location is idyllic and the views and house are wonderful. The most memorable part was learning to make fresh pasta and being inspired to continue at home, and relaxing in the grounds. (more)Lindsey Evans
The beauty of the place, the warm of the house or maybe most of all the wonderful people we met there. I was looking forward the cooking lessons but we have found much more than that. (more)Anca Stanese

Umbria B&B farmstay accommodation
The stunning location of the farmstay - spectacular views, and we were extremely fortunate to have glorious weather for two of our three days. Also good, close proximity to town (short drive), which turned out to be the best dining option with our two young boys. (more)Fiona Dell
Our holiday in Umbria was absolutely fantastic! The accommodation was beautiful and Francesco and Monia (the owners) took great care refurbishing the old farm house, being sensitive to the architecture, nature and the Umbrian tradition. (more)Tamar Feldberg
The house was beautiful and the surrounding garden (fantastic olive groves) and swimming pool. House staff were all very nice and accommodating. (more)Kate Aydin
From 110 per person per night
Sardinia farmhouse accommodation
It was great holiday. Highly recommend staying here for either couples or families. Alberto is a great host. It was a relaxing holiday (more)Aoife Scallan
Amazing, it blew us away completely. We will definitely return, hopefully with family and friends in tow next time! (more)Natalie Ball
Best holiday we've ever had. Properly relaxing... We felt very looked after by Alberto who served us breakfast every morning and dinner every evening. He always had plenty of time to talk about the local area. (more)Alison Jenkins
From 29 - 50 per person per night
