Reviews for Catalonia family walking holiday


review 18 Jul 2017

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

This was a lovely holiday and the coastal walks especially glorious. We much appreciated the welcome pack of groceries, the very comfortable and well appointed townhouse, and the flexibility we were given to modify our routes. In the unseasonably hot June weather (30 degrees plus) having our own pool was a great bonus. When the heat curtailed our walks, the local beaches included in several walks were a delight.

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

Vivian and Alan gave us a warm welcome and provided us with a pack of interesting, varied and sometimes challenging walks through vineyards, river valleys, in the Gavarres hills and up and down the craggy coastal paths. We would recommend sturdy walking boots and stick or walking pole as paths were often stony or rocky, and some of the walks involved a bit of scrambling over rocks or up steep steps, which might be tough for anyone with problem knees. Be sure to take your swimming things on coastal walks - the sea is hard to resist!

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

We ate very well in the local village at the Cercle bar, where the owners were very friendly. And we used the excellent local bakers, butcher and fishmonger when we cooked at home. Calonge provided everything we needed and encouraged us to sample the range of village life.

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

This was an excellent holiday which we would definitely recommend.
