Croatia vacation, 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 vacations that are not too crowded. (more)Cordelia Howitt
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable vacation. (more)Graeme Everard
From £820 - £940 excluding flights
Croatia family activity week
The vacation was brilliant. Activity balanced with proper relaxation. We have come back really rejuvenated. Craig and Xania (and Zora-the dog) work very well together to pull the experience together so you can just get on and enjoy your break. (more)Paul Irving
Excellent! The best parts were actively exploring the Island of Vis, on bikes, kayaks and foot. Beautiful place, beautiful people. (more)Diane Johnson
Our kids, aged 5 and 11 had a terrific time and really loved the activities as well as mucking about in the sea, snorkelling and swimming...Great! "Fantastic, awesome, really good!" (comments from the kids). (more)Diana Lloyd
From £820 - £940 excluding flights
Tailor made husky safari in Wild Taiga, Finland
Amazing, fantastic, once in a lifetime vacation 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
Husky sledding across a frozen lake just before sunset was the most memorable part of the vacation (more)James Hamand
From €1020 excluding flights
Hiking with huskies vacation in Finland
Hiking with huskies is an unusual experience, they are such a smart and good dogs. A++++++++++ :) (more)Anastasia Nastik
Great, a real escape from it all and a back to basics experience with great hosts and a fantastic way to get to experience the real Finland. (more)Morag Turton
The scenery was fantastic - pristine pine forests dotted with lakes but the most enjoyable part was getting to know our guide, Aki, and of course the dogs! (more)Justin Francis
From €998 - €1138 excluding flights
Iceland adventure vacation, 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 travelers. Tips? Each season in Iceland brings a different set of wonders. A one-off vacation, 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...

From €1950 including domestic flights only
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 vacation: 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)
Accommodation in the Mercantour, France
It is the best vacation we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years vacationing 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 vacations. (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
Wilderness activity vacation with huskies in Finland
Memorable parts? Hmm, all of it, we had such a great time I couldn't really pick any one thing over the rest Tips? Local benefits? Yes to all three. Overall rating? One of the best experiences ever, could not recommend this vacation enough (more)Paul Ashby

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
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

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

The hospitality of our hosts was most memorable...Look forward to a great vacation in beautiful, secluded locations. (more)Hilary Wight
A wonderfully calming and tranquil vacation rather than an "exciting" one. Should also mention the great hospitality shown by our hosts, delicious home cooked food and generous introductions to local wines and brandies! A lovely relaxing time. (more)Mark McKenzie
From €873 - €1078 excluding flights
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 vacations ever! (more)Beth Kilsby-Macnab
The welcome was exceptional and we would definitely return, if lucky enough to be visiting again. (more)Anne Sykes
