Umbria cooking holiday, Italy
The cooking was great and we helped out with different parts such as frying courgette flowers in rice flour a delicacy and making ravioli (more)Richard Soper
The cooking was fun and well balanced with other activities and visits to interesting places in the wider area. (more)Penny Kent
This is foodie heaven. The cooking classes were fabulous came back with a lot of good ideas. This is holiday is run by a local couple on their own organic smallholding.

Tuscany tours, walking and wine tasting in Italy
Memorable parts? Viewing the city of Florence from the Viewpoint of Piazza Michaelangelo Tips? Come prepared for any kind of weather. We had wind, rain, thick cloud and hot sunshine. Local benefits? Very much so. We stayed in a very lovely converted farmhouse, ate in local restaurants, shopped in small towns and villages, and tasted the local Chianti Classico in several wineries. Overall rating? A wonderful mixture of fabulous walks through forests and vineyards,... (more)Susan Sargeant

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

As a solo traveller, I basically wanted a relaxing break with some fun activities and learning too. I got all that and more with the Cooking and Painting holiday that I booked through Responsible travel, based at Podere le Olle in Umbria. I totally loved the experience, made especially memorable by... (more)Ambika Thandavan
