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

This has to be the best walking holiday I've ever had. The walking was incredible. The landscapes were all different and all stunningly beautiful. I will never forget walking in Ordesa, Añisclo and the Sierra de Guara. Our guides were knowledgeable about geology, flora, fauna, history and folklore and were fantastic company. Lucy and Simon were tireless as hosts, making sure everything was completely perfect. The food was amazing, the farmhouse charming and the weather (end of April, beginning of May) was ideal for walking in the mountains.

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

Just go!

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

Definitely. We walked with local guides. Although we didn't eat out often (why would we when the food in the farmhouse was so good!), all meals were cooked using local ingredients.

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

Can't fault it. I really hope to return to Casa Allué.

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

Every day was a different adventure ! At each bend in the track I marvelled at the scenery, it was breath taking. So many magical moments - walking in golden light through a beech forest, dipping my toes in turquoise water in a mountain river and gasping at the sight of the bearded vultures soaring high above. So many wonderful memories of a truly fantastic walking holiday.

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

Simon and Lucy looked after us so well and ensured we were extremely well catered for. I was so glad that I bought my binoculars - a must ! We were provided with all the information prior to arrival to ensure we were well equipped. Even walking poles were provided by our lovely Guide so no need to burden yourself with them. The one tip I would give to anyone considering this holiday is to say - just book it - you won't be disappointed !

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

Lucy & Simon are passionate about the environment and we made use when we were out and about to stop en route to dispose of the recycling. We replenished food stocks from the local shop. On one walk we visited a derelict village where the occupants are trying to raise money to rebuild their homes. The group made contribution to this worthy cause. We supported some local eateries on the walks and I purchased excellent quality locally made souvenirs when we visited some villages. The local people definitely benefit from the support of the family and holiday makers visiting this area.

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

It was everything and more I could have hoped for and would recommend this holiday to anyone. From beginning to end I was extremely well catered for. Simon and Lucy are wonderful hosts and made everyone in the Group feel at home in their beautiful house Casa Allué. I have fabulous memories of the best walking holiday I have ever had and hope to return !
