Bali eco lodge bungalows in Indonesia
I hesitate to write this review for selfish reasons. Why? Because this holiday is so wonderful I'd rather keep it a secret! Situated on the southern slopes of Mt Batakaru in remotest Bali, this place is a pocket of paradise, far removed from the ravages of the 21st century. Having spent a week there I did not want to leave. (more)Daphne Donkin
Most memorable was walking through the rice-fields... It was just great. (more)Astrid Dello
From US $85 - US $210 per house per night

Gosh, difficult to say which part out of so many! I am reviewing the holiday five months later and still remember everything about our stay here. The delicious food and warm hospitality from the hosts, the beautiful scenery and the long walks will stay with me forever, I think. (more)Bill Reid
The kindness of our hosts, the nice balanced way they shared and included us in their individual enthusiasm and warmth, the pertinent information about local and Piemonte region, without coming too close were most memorable. Excellent holiday. (more)Anna Welsing
Whilst we have many very happy memories of our recent 5 weeks in Europe all involved voted that the week was 'the' most memorable. This was primarily a result of the passion that both Marla and Fabrizio bring to the running of the accommodation and to ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. Of course this professionalism is ably supported by the fantastic scenery and interesting history of the area. (more)Neal Dalgliesh

I would love to go back and do a horse-riding trip with the countess as the best way to see Transylvania close up!...It was absolutely wonderful! Can't wait to go back! (more)Jan Barden
We loved it. Romania was something of a revelation, so many people thought we were a bit crazy to go to a country that tends to have a bad press, but we came across no problems whatsoever, it was one of the smoothest holidays in terms of organisation we have had. We hope to return and maybe stay in one of the Saxon villages next time. (more)Liz Pritchard
Fabulous. It was very interesting, we met some wonderful people and I came home feeling the most relaxed I had ever felt after a holiday. There is a small part of my heart left in Miklosvar and I will certainly return again one day. (more)Heidi Fuller

Snowdonia guesthouse & B&B
Memorable parts? The most memorable part was actually getting a rear wheel puncture down a lovely country lane and not being able to get the back wheel off to repair it! However, equally as memorable was the fantastic Welsh hospitality when a couple looked after our bikes while another lady - totally unknown to us - took us back to our accom to collect our car. Really friendly people! Tips? Be more prepared than we were!! We went on a cycling and walking weekend and thought we were... (more)Monica Stephens

Lesvos holiday accommodation, Greece
Memorable parts? Just being able to completely relax and read and enjoy ourselves. The sea is beautiful and clear. The whole atmosphere of the place is very chilled. Batteries definitely fully recharged. Tips? Vatera, Lesvos is a place to go if you want a completely chilled 'do nothing' kind of holiday (which we did). It was perfect for our needs because it enabled us to wind down, read a lot, swim a lot, and not a lot else. If you like a holiday with things to do or lots of exploring... (more)Emily Hunka
