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
Croatia holiday, activity week
An amazing experience and it has given us an incentive to consider how we become fitter, eat more vegetarian dishes and how invigorating it is to try new things. Never too late to try! (more)Veronica Thompson
Fabulous if you're into activity holidays that are not too crowded. (more)Cordelia Howitt
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable holiday. (more)Graeme Everard

Amazing, fantastic, once in a lifetime holiday experience. We could see that our hosts had very responsible attitudes towards the environment and were working to preserve the local wildlife as well as providing really attentive care for their huskies. (more)Liz Booth
The most memorable part was meeting the dogs, steering the sled and the complete change of scenery and fresh air. The chance to sample local food (moose, reindeer, berries) which was mostly excellent. (more)Katherine Stuart

From €1020 excluding flights
Iceland adventure holiday, Lake Myvatn in Spring
Memorable parts? The guide, Ingimundur, had a wonderful passion for his country and delighted in showing us parts of this astonishing landscape which I doubt would be discovered by most independent travellers. Tips? Each season in Iceland brings a different set of wonders. A one-off holiday, such as this one (which was run, unusually, at the end of winter) gives an opportunity to see an astonishing country at a time when it is more-or-less free of tourists. coping with the spectacularly...

Mercantour Park self catering gite, France
Excellent. We travelled with young family and would certainly stay again so cannot recommend it too highly. (more)ROSIE KELBRICK
A really worthwhile and memorable holiday: the self guided walks were well planned and gave us a great idea of the locality; the food was very good and the garden(s) excellent for relaxing on our days off. We were given a very warm welcome and a friendly stay. (more)Jon Nay
Amazing 360 degree views on the walks in the Maritime Alps and the relaxed but informative approach of our guide Mel. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped and the food which was prepared by Liz was delicious and varied. (more)Cathy Wiggins
From £420 per week (sleeps 2)
France gite accommodation, Mercantour, sleeps 6
It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
The Alpes-Maritimes and Mercantour National Park is a fantastic area to visit and we would consider this to be one of our best holidays. (more)Lourdes Roffey
We loved the autumn walking in the Parc du Mercantour, in fact our walk to the Lac de Negre was probably the prettiest walk we have ever done. (more)Mary Dracup
From £420 per accommodation per week
Sri Lanka eco lodge accommodation
I don΄t think that I've ever felt so relaxed. Staying in a simple (but clean and neat) hut in the jungle and listening to the sounds of birds and sometimes even elephants made me feel very, very, very happy and close to nature. (more)Camilla Berndtson
The whole experience of staying here was memorable, from the incredibly warm welcome through to the amazing food prepared by local staff on an open fire. (more)Rachel Morgans
It was everything we hoped it would be, so far away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Sri Lanka. The accommodation is very comfortable and really well thought out. (more)Annabel Smith

From SKr12525 excluding flights
Vegetarian bed & breakfast in West Wales
A memorable vacation to a unique land. Our host was outstanding. He will cater to all flavors of veg, but we had no trouble getting him to feed us vegan or nearly-vegan cuisine. All delicious and filling. (more)Richard Stone
I would highly recommend that bed and breakfast to anyone who needs some time away from the crouds and from their lives. I felt like staying even longer as Phil (the host) made my stay a very pleasant one and kept giving me insider-tips where to hike out to or what to do. He was very helpful. (more)Hanna Leipold
From £28 - £60 per person per night

Memorable parts? Visiting and discovering a new area and staying with like-minded people. Tips? Stay for longer! Local benefits?

Le Marche accommodation in Italy
Very enjoyable! (more)Cath Ernst
Everything was memorable! I think the best part for us was also the simplest - sitting on the terrace in the sun, whenever we could, just looking at and drinking in the stunning view and feel of Italian rolling hills! friend and I both cried on the night before we had to leave; one of my best holidays ever! (more)Beth Kilsby-Macnab
The welcome was exceptional and we would definitely return, if lucky enough to be visiting again. (more)Anne Sykes
