Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
Memorable parts? 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. The villa is a one-of-a-kind gem and we feel very fortunate to have been able to spend two weeks relaxing there and being wowed by the beautiful vistas and sunsets that greeted us every day and every evening. ...

Spain self drive holiday, Rioja & Pyrenees
Memorable parts? This holiday was so packed full of fantastic memories.........From the moment we arrived in Bilbao with the awesome Guggenheim Museum and delicious tapas, through to the final day when we walked down to the beach in Barcelona to paddle in the Mediterranean Sea like a couple of teenagers! Tips? Go with an open mind, and enjoy the real Spain. Local benefits? All the hotels we stayed in, apart from the first night, were family run hotels. The spanish people... (more)Janet Herbert

Spanish course & walking holiday, Picos de Europa, Spain
Had a great time. Everyone was very friendly, the teaching by Ana and Celine was brilliant and perfectly judged for my level of ability. The surrounding mountains are lovely and Jamie took us on some great walks in the afternoons. The food and drink in the local bars and restaurants was excellent. I came home with considerably greater confidence in Spanish. (more)Andrew Robinson
Excellent. The language school, walks, village and environment were better than I had dared to hope they would be. I hope I have a chance to return for a longer stay. (more)Cecilia Johnson
Loved it! I was made to feel right at home from the minute I met the crew; I made new friends, improved my Spanish and got to walk off the local cheese and cider in the spectacular Picos de Europa. I really didn't want to leave! (more)Carina Kane
From €325 excluding flights
Learn Spanish & walk the Camino de Santiago, Spain
Memorable parts? The hiking was gorgeous Tips? Get to Panes early enough to walk around the town and have a lay of the land before starting the week. Local benefits? Yes. The local economy is able to support this kind of tourism. Overall rating? We greatly enjoyed this unique adventure in learning the language and experiencing a culture and having an action-oriented vacation. And we are in our 60's. (more)Margaret Johnson
From €355 excluding flights
Altiplano de Granada activity holiday, Spain
Fantastic, the whole family loved it and I have every intention in returning. There is so much to do in this area that you cannot possibly get it all in in one holiday. (more)Simon Squibb
This holiday provided all the activities and breathtaking scenery you could want from an adventure holiday. The natural parks and reservoirs flourish due to natural spring water and provide waterfalls and swimming points along the hikes across the rolling mountain sides. (more)James Metcalfe
We will always remember our first view of the accommodation; it is in a lovely setting and is a beautiful hotel. Ilaria gave us a very friendly greeting, which was just wonderful after our drive...Completely brilliant. Best holiday decision I've made in a long time. (more)Sara Dudley

Tenerife holiday apartments, sleeps 2
Memorable parts? The magical scenery of the north western side of this beautiful island - Mount Teide, the Masca gorge and Garachico plus the area around the accomodation - Los Realejos, El Socorro beach etc. Driving on the almost vertical switchback roads was also a memorable experience! Tips? February was a brilliant time to go if you want to walk. Warm but not too hot, although be prepared for a few damp/cloudy days. Evenings were quite chilly in the accomodation and there was...

The most memorable part of the holiday was really being able to immerse ourselves in what felt like real Spain amongst the most charming of people who spoke no English but understood the meaning of hospitality. (more)Penny Whitford

Catalonia self guided cycling holiday, Spain
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
Loved it! There were many memorable moments: views of the Mediterranean from the Cap de Creus Park, hike to San Pere de Rodes, delicious food at every turn, nifty Romanesque churches at seemingly every cross-road….I could go on (more)Amy Shannon
10 out of 10, it was a great experience, exactly what I was looking for. (more)Justin Bonetto
From £426 - £840 excluding flights
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

From €895 - €995 excluding flights
Cycling holiday in Catalonia, Spain
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 cafι. 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
Very enjoyable....Go visit and eat at the castle hotel in Bispal (more)Itay Mehl

Photography holiday in Andalucia, Spain
Great value for money - informative and friendly tuition, excellent accomodation and hospitality. (more)Louise Goddard
The week was very enjoyable - good photography tips, great locations in Spanish villages and coasts, and with 'staff' that seemed more like old friends than small business operators. And it was excellent value for money. (more)Murray Rudd
Meeting the host, wonderful people who looked after our every need...Excellent. (more)John Bell
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 £1185 - £1335 excluding flights
Learn Spanish in Granada, Spain
Stepping out on the terrace and facing the magnificence of the Al Hambra Palaces in the sunshine. It’s one of those wonderful places you spend your whole life gazing at in pictures, but when you see it for yourself it is far more than any picture can portray. (more)Negla Salem
Excellent, the school and it's staff were well organised, encouraging and excellent value for money. The accommodation offered at the school site was basic but enjoyable for the company. (more)Maureen Perkins
It is so good, I am still here - have arranged to stay an extra week! (more)June King

Catalonia self guided walking holidays
We were sorry when it ended. Steve is a friendly, down to earth operator who gave excellent advice. The instructions were very easy to follow. This certainly rates as an outstanding holiday experience. (more)Pam Dowling
This holiday was very well organized, and it allowed me to explore towns and landscapes in Catalonia that I never would have discovered on my own...The most memorable part of this holiday was the little discoveries along the trail - secluded beaches, apple and olive orchards, vineyards, and old ruins. (more)James Gabbert
The scenery, it was spectacular, beautiful trails, not many tourists, unspoilt. Food and wine superb. People at guest accomodation were very friendly and helpful and Steve the operator was excellent. His organisation for the trip was perfect, everything went to plan, he was a good communicator and dealt with any problems we had. (more)jamie sharkey
From £378 - £674 excluding flights
Self guided cycling holiday Catalonia, Spain
Memorable parts? From a bike you see the country in a way you never can from a car - we saw a huge variety of scenery in just a few days. Tips? We would definitely recommend this operator to either keen or beginner cyclists - just tell Alan whether you want to do more or less, and he's happy to plan an itinerary for you. Local benefits? We stayed in some great small hotels in some stunning settings, run by owners who were really committed to making our holiday special. Overall... (more)Bennet Summers
From €895 - €995 excluding flights
Lanzarote rural self catering accommodation, Canary Islands
Couldn't have asked for more! This hideaway, hidden amongst Lanzaote's awesome landscape, made a perfect home from home for me and my young family. The added benefits were for me a hammock, my 2 boys a 'garden' to explore and my husband enjoyed the alfresco cooking. The owners left Great tips on best beaches and places to explore too. (more)Rachel Grevatte
Wonderful break in a Rural part of Lanzarote. The beaches at Costa De Papagayo are to be recommended for a relaxing in the sun and out of the wind...Excellent holiday. (more)Stuart Mackay
It really was a beautiful holiday. The location was wonderful; the landscape was amazing, nice and quiet, in contact with nature. We liked hiking in the beautiful Lanzarote volcanic areas and along the paths of La Geria wine region. (more)Chiara Zubelli
From €60 per house per night (sleeps 4)

Memorable parts? The mountain biking was brilliant and the guides were excellent. Tips? Don't expect a lot from the hotel. Local benefits?

Catalonia walking & food tour, Spain
Beautiful hike on the Spanish Riviera was the most memorable part...We had a wonderful time, both on the Costa Brava and in Barcelona. (more)Don Song

From €859 - €895 excluding flights
Luxury anti ageing health retreat in Spain
Brilliant! It’s exactly what a lot of women need during stressful times and it’s a fantastic environment to make friends and support other people. There were lots of memorable aspects but the two things that stand out were the varied mixture of activities in the programme, and the cohesion of the group and tutors alike. (more)Jita Shah
The food was absolutely delicious and we were never hungry which was quite a surprise for a detox holiday. The exercise program was just perfect and you could do as much or as you felt able to. The treatments in the SPA were excellent. All around it was a fantastic holiday. (more)Sari Winckworth
From £998 - £1148 excluding flights
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
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 €100 - €130 per accommodation per night
Camino de Santiago self guided walking in Spain
Memorable parts? Walking into the square in front of Santiago cathedral after walking 111kilometres to get there. The emotion of achieving it and the realisation there was no more walking overwhelmed me. The square was filled with other pilgrims each one full of the same joys. Tips? It is all about the feet and you cannot have too many Compeed blister packs! A good pair of rugged footware and the best hiking socks will repay the investment. Be in the moment, if you think how far... (more)Tony Finn
From £445 - £850 excluding flights
Catalan horse riding holiday in Spain
Memorable parts? Communal meals with so many colourful and friendly people! The wonderful family who ran the hotel who couldn't do enough for you, but didn't crowd you.

From €870 - €1080 excluding flights
Las Alpujarras guided walking holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? One of the most exciting parts of our holiday was being at 2,500metres in the Sierra Nevada mountains after an exhilarating walk & being able to see across the Mediterranean sea to the north coast of Africa. The weather had been misty as we drove to the beginning of our walk but as we walked through the cloud we came into bright sunshine & could see clouds below us with a fantastic rainbow above. As we walked through the ancient silk routes the fragrance of wild herbs accompanied... (more)Ann Hoptroff
From €625 - €675 excluding flights
