1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The hike around the Puig Campana was spectacular! The twice daily yoga sessions were also fantastic: Nicole is a wonderful teacher and put on a variety of classes that were accessible to people of all ages/abilities.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Definitely pack proper hiking gear: walking boots with ankle support and also walking poles, if you have them.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes: The food at the hotel was all locally sourced, even including pomegranates grown in the garden. The external companies used for the hikes and the mountain biking were local too, and in small groups.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I had an amazing time; I've recommended our tour operator to all my friends and colleagues, and am considering going on more of their retreats.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Many, many thanks for such a wonderful yoga break . I really did so enjoy my morning yoga sessions and learnt a lot to help me on my yoga journey. The yoga terrace was perfect. I feel that my practice since coming home has improved after working with such an excellent teacher ( Nicole ). Some of the things she said were really helpfull. And do you know what ? I have just felt happy on my return – a sort of glow with lots of energy. Long may it last. Do hope I can hold on to this when I start work again . I really liked the hotel, the people and the ambience of the place gave me time to read , rest and recuperate during the day. So for me it was all perfect. I do not have any suggestions as to how it could be better. The level of yoga was just right ………not too easy or too difficult. I would certainly come again.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Sorry ..... do not really have any.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

10 out of 10.

review 3 May 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The most memorable part of the trip had to be the beautiful setting and air of peacefulness that we lived in for the few days. The hotel itself was a lovely family run place set amongst orange groves and surrounded by the contrasting stark mountains and blue sea. The atmosphere throughout the retreat was calm and easy-going. You always felt subtly pampered by Nicole and the people who ran the hotel - everything was taken care of. It was an ideal way to find some space to breathe and detach in comfort.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This is not a stark or regimented retreat. If you want the treat of a few days to explore your yoga practice and be active while living in comfort and eating delicious (though always healthy!) food, this is the one to book.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely. The hotel was family run, the food from the restaurant was all local and each of the individuals on the team was part of the surrounding community. Nicola and Gary are quite conscious of the environment and we were encouraged to be mindful of our consumption throughout. Each of the activities was designed to make as little impact on the landscape as possible.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I have such fond memories of the trip. It was a perfect opportunity to do some spring cleansing of both mind and body! Nicole and Gary really have the balance right of providing an active and stimulating itinerary while still giving people the space to indulge in whatever form of retreat they need. I greatly enjoyed the yoga practice though I feel that the emphasis in the classes is currently mainly on the physical practice. I would have loved if the balance had been shifted to the softness and peacefulness that is so unique to yoga. Getting the expertise of two teachers over the few days was excellent though, and I hope it continues. I already have recommended this to other people and hope to return again in the future!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I really enjoyed the horse riding and thai massage

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, in that all of the services which we had the chane to take part in were from people who lived in the area, the hotel which was chosen was very actively involved in envrionmental issues, recycled, no waste!!!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was fab! fab! Fab! Nicloa and Gary are wonderfull hosts, really knew the area and were warm and decent people. The people who attended were also really nice - I am thinking about going back in April!!
