Yoga retreats in Andalucia, Spain
The best thing I have ever done, so so glad that I did it. (more)Josie Korda
I will and have recommended this retreat to friends. I returned to work feeling refreshed and committed to making this feeling of health and inner peace last! (more)Stephanie Jones
I can not rate this retreat highly enough.The effort that is made to make sure everyone's level of yoga practice is accommodated and everyone is included. The attention to small details that make the whole experience one of healing, learning, happiness and joy. I left feeling energised, rested, optimistic about the future and re-engaged with my yoga practice and my health. (more)Alison Pomfret
From €649 - €1149 excluding flights

From €690 excluding flights
Catalonia family self guided cycling holiday, Spain
Wonderful holiday for active people who love nature and do not like tourist traps. (more)Dorine van der Vloodt
The most memorable part of the holiday was the 30k mountain bike ride that took in parts of the local scenery that would have remained unseen without the guidance and assistance of our host. (more)Mark Burberry
From €280 excluding flights
Altiplano de Granada activity holiday, Spain
Book it ! You won't be disappointed. There is something for everyone to do. (more)Nikki Rogers
It was fantastic, our most memorable holiday ever and we were all sad to leave. (more)Clare Duncan

From €207 - €270 excluding flights
Catalan horse riding holiday in Spain
We spent a lovely 6 days with Gareth and Fiona. The best bit was the communal meals and camaraderie between all the people staying there, whatever activity they were taking part in (more)Vanessa Richards
Hats off to Fiona and Gareth, they really got the formula of a home from home with the conveniences of a hotel spot on! Five star, definitely five star, every bit of it provided what my family, from 4 to 40 years old, needed for a perfect holiday. They gave us a list of great places to visit, they had horse riding just down the road where my daughter would spend the day there if she could! It is definitely a place we will go to again. (more)Caroline O
From €685 - €1065 excluding flights
Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
It is a wonderful place for a family holiday with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma
From €1225 - €1610 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Cycling tour in Catalonia for food lovers, Spain
It was great. We could do as much as we wanted. We could have made it as hard or easy as we liked. We loved being active. (more)Liz Wood
Biking in the beautiful country of Spain with my husband and good friends was the most memorable part. It was a wonderful experience, great trails, food and memories to last a lifetime. I am planning my next trip now! (more)Mark Edwards
Everything about this holiday was excellent, and exceeded expectations. We have already recommended this holiday to our friends, and would do it again ourselves! (more)Ashling Swirtz
From €950 - €1170 excluding flights
Cycling holiday in Catalonia, Spain
Great. Would definitely now consider another cycling holiday with this company. We enjoyed the experience of cycling through the countryside and to the beach then stopping off for lunch and a beer. We saw so many lovely places. (more)patricia houston
We all enjoyed it immensely...I think seeing the first medieval village and cycling through the deep countryside were the most satisfying experiences. For others it might have been stopping for the first beer at a village café. Or the fantastic burger and chips in Ripli when we were all tired and hungry. (more)John Lowdon
Very good..Cycling through the countryside and to and from the beach. Also the food was fantastic. (more)Wendy McCaffer
From €429 - €849 excluding flights

The locations for the photo shoots were excellent - especially Comares and the lake. Good company enjoyed over the varied evening meals. (more)ROB INNIS
Great value for money - informative and friendly tuition, excellent accomodation and hospitality. (more)Louise Goddard
From £699 excluding flights
Photography holiday in Picos de Europa, Spain
Great time. Interesting locations. I got a lot of hands on time with the knowledgeable instructors. I ended up looking at certain things I'd never considered before, and have taken that knowledge home with me as I take photos here. (more)Shane Woods
Very good, I learned a lot. The small group size was perfect for a photography holiday and despite being very full in terms of activities was also very relaxing. Food very large portions and good range of choice. (more)D Smith
The mountainous landscape of the Picos de Europa was stunning...lots of photographic help and advice was available for anyone who wished to take it and each participant was treated as an individual at their own level of expertise. (more)Maureen Fidkin
From £2100 excluding flights
Catalonia self guided cycling holiday, Spain
Loved the fact that this worked so well for my husband and I - he's a serious recreational cyclist and I'm an avid cyclist but more casual in my approach. We're '50 something's' and found this all very enjoyable. (more)Beth from Canada
What a fantastic holiday! Cycling each day down a new route, through vineyards, small hamlets, to the beach! A holiday quite different to anything we had both been on before. (more)Claire Hermolle
It was well organised. (more)Jane Coward
From £426 - £840 excluding flights
Catalan Pyrenees family activity holiday
Memorable parts? Every activity was at least as good as expected if not better. Great group of people, fantastic fun all brilliantly orchestrated by our devoted, excellent guide, Dejan. Tips? Don't have high expectations of the hotel location! We had a wonderful holiday but were initially disappointed by the very central location of the hotel within the resort of Sort, since we imagined a rural, romantic place. Silly fools we are! The pool however is wonderful, clean and a great... (more)Hinds Beatrice
From £980 including UK flights
Catalonia self guided walking holidays
The awesome coastal and inland scenery, the beautifully clear sea and the wildlife combined to make every day really interesting. (more)Peter Cheetham
The variety and diversity of the scenery each day contributed greatly to making this a most memorable experience. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful scenery, you may not come this way again. (more)Joy Field
I loved the walk along the rocky coast from secluded beach to secluded beach. Seeing nesting storks in the Aiguamolls national park was a highlight too! (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
From £378 - £674 excluding flights
Picos inn to inn walking holiday
We couldn't fault it. As an introduction to a new area, it was faultless. It felt as if we were in a very remote corner of the world! Our most interesting night was in a rural farm which has been in the same family for 400 years. (more)Mike Muir
A good holiday with some hard days walking - very fulfilling (more)Dave Hill
We had a fabulous week, the scenery was amazing... The incredible landscapes and views on the walks! The amazing flora and fauna, saw at least 10 species of Butterfly, some of which I've never seen before in UK at least. (more)Ros Perryman
From £980 excluding flights
Cave accommodation in Andalucia, Spain
The holiday was a wonderful chance to explore a very interesting corner of Spain. Staying in the cave was wonderful and we would thoroughly recommend it. (more)Deborah Pole
WONDERFUL. Out first three generation family holiday in several years and it couldn't have been better. (more)Melissa Elliott
It was good, for a week we lived like Hobbits in our home under the hill. For fans of Bilbo Baggins this is the place to be. (more)Susan Clack
From £400 - £600 per week
Andalucia self catering accommodation, Almeria, Spain
Wonderful, already thinking about going back. (more)Roger Davis
Perfect..the best part was driving on the beautiful country roads. (more)Eve Piggott
It was all great: peace and quiet, made to feel welcome but left alone when you wanted privacy. The local market was crammed with excellent local produce. Local wildlife, stargazing, scenery. (more)Richard Needham
From £390 per week (sleeps 2)
Rural guesthouse in Malaga, Spain
We had a lovely family suite which was spacious and well equipped. The pool is also lovely - quite large and pristine... (more)Julie Mills
The blend of marvellous scenery, a fabulous place to stay and relax, and the hospitality of our hosts (including great food and great local advice on walking, parking points, activities etc). (more)Russell Chant
Exploring hills and geological areas near the property was the most memorable...Relaxing. Hosts very attentive and informative. Peaceful location. (more)Diana Loffler
From €73 - €83 per double room per night
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
Catalonia family activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? Staying in a welcoming and comfortable hotel in a beautiful part of Spain, with delightful hosts, and masses of available activities. Tips? Stay at here, it's great. Local benefits? Yes, all of the above. We booked several activities with local companies and ate in local restaurants. We were able to travel extensively by bike rather than car. Overall rating? Excellent. We have all returned fit, healthy and happy. (more)Mary Anne Roffs
From €690 excluding flights
Andalucia self guided walking holiday, Spain
Just what we wanted. We used the local restaurants and bars, used the local taxi, shopped in the village. They are all very friendly and helpful but it does help if you speak a bit of the language. (more)Trev Liberson
The entire experience was delightful, and it would be too difficult to pick out any one aspect. We had a terrific time. (more)lin pattullo
Great holiday, great weather, our hosts Gale and Terry were fantastic and made us very welcome. (more)Bronwyn Petrie
From £390 per accommodation
Spanish course & walking holiday, Picos de Europa, Spain
The whole holiday was memorable. (more)Kate Sharrock
A first class combination of fun and informative Spanish lessons, with exploring a beautiful part of Spain. Well organised by the operator. (more)Stephen Orwin
Very relaxing for solo travellers - once you are there all you have to do is study, eat and walk! (more)Sabrina Sweeney
From €400 excluding flights
Learn Spanish and walk the Camino de Santiago, Spain
I had a great time in ways I didn't expect. The area is stunning and I loved the local food. (more)Christine Riley
This was fantastic, and I would do it again tomorrow if I could! (more)Cynthia Krom
Just to say how much I enjoyed this trip. Amazing how much you can learn in 15hours beginners course. Caring, responsible and responsive team of teachers and walking guides. Great mountain views, coastal paths... unforgetable visit to the caves to see prehistoric painting - sophisticated. (more)Ethel Kojman
From €400 excluding flights
Self guided cycling holiday Catalonia, Spain
Very good...La Rectoria accommodation: comfortable ease, nothing a problem, beautiful rural location, delightful hosts and delicious food. (more)Lorna McCourt
We loved the flexibility of this trip - Alan and Vivian were happy to tailor the trip to our needs and always ready to offer advice or ideas. The trip they planned allowed us to see Catalonia and stay in some fantastic places without the hassle of sorting everything out ourselves. (more)Bennet Summers
From €955 - €1170 excluding flights
Luxury fitness holidays in Spain
The holiday was excellent from start to finish - so much so that I am considering returning later in the year. (more)Diane Tams
the most memorable part was being able to relax!...I had no idea what to expect and met up with a group of 30 - 55 year olds in need of time to relax and unwind. 14 burned out ladies! Gentle yoga, cardio circuits, walks, good food etc contributed to re-energise us. Good massages. (more)Susan Barnacott
From £1148 - £1298 excluding flights
North Spain small group holiday, culture & adventure
Memorable parts? Picnic at La Guardia and day free to explore Bilbao. Lots of nice pintxo. Tips? Use packed bag, because lots of walking with luggages. Its manageable anyway, just that packed bag is easier. Local benefits? No idea. Overall rating? It just great and too short for me. (more)Swiss Nge
From £1035 - £1160 excluding flights
Spain cycling holiday near Alicante
Memorable parts? I would say all of my holiday was memorable. Brilliant mountain biking, superb food, incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Also the silence in the village and the beautiful scenery! Tips? Go on holiday here. You will not regret it. Local benefits? I think this is responsible travel at it's peak. Overall rating? Brilliant village, hosts, biking, food. What more could you want? (more)Krystyna Holder
From €200 - €850 excluding flights
Spain walking holiday, Sarria to Santiago de Compostela
Memorable parts? Getting to Santiago to the Cathedral after a long and sometimes demanding walk. Tips? For those in their sixties I would suggest a walk duration of 11-12 days from Porto to Santiago. Local benefits? Local people benefitted certainly from the additional business they got from us. We were extremely careful to respect the environment we were in and were generally impressed with the level of cleanliness and respect shown to it. Overall rating? This was... (more)Chandra Kant Sharma
From €675 excluding flights
Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
We really felt that we got to know this area of southern Spain thanks to our hosts. Really great time. We'd love to go back. (more)Laura Greenman
You couldn't ask for a more idyllic location, or more welcoming hosts. Shane met us at the villa when we arrived and gave us a quick run through the basics, while Bea would always let us know when she was around to water the plants (twice during the week), a much appreciated sign of the type of consideration they show towards their guests. (more)David Mervik
The peaceful setting, serene surroundings and the warm and gracious hospitality of our hosts, Shane and Bea, are our fondest memories. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left, two weeks later, we rarely thought of our hectic, fast-paced life back home. (more)Nancy Lipson
From €879 - €1340 per accommodation per week
Spanish Pyrenees historic B&B
It was perfect in all respects, particularly thanks to our hosts who not only cooked the delicious dinners but also helped with (very useful) recommendations for excursions, organising rental bikes and stimulating conversation. We will be back soon! (more)Irina von Wiese
Brilliant. Would love to do it again...Beautiful countryside, quiet location & helpful hosts (more)R Moore
Very good, familiar hospitality...Roy a very good and fine cook and Goretti the wine and whisky-expert was marvellous. (more)Lutgart Van Malderen
From €90 - €130 per room per night (sleeps 2)
Extremadura walking holiday, Spain
The most memorable parts of this holiday were the accommodation and location. (more)Robert Butlin
Great to see a totally different area, 2000 years of history. Walks often ended up at the local village square so supported bars and eating places. Take plenty to read as plenty of time for siesta and binoculars as plenty of local birdlife visible from the balcony (more)John Morrison
Superb. For us the personal service made this a memorable holiday....The care and trouble taken by the providers (Pippa and Manfred) to meet our particular needs and make this a holiday to remember. (more)Trev Liberson
From £362 - £655 excluding flights
