Every day was different. The one that stands out was the trip to St Juan de Plan, a small village up in the mountains with fascinating local museums, idyllic scenery and an excellent restaurant.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

A reasonable fluency in Spanish is essential.

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

All guides and teachers were local Spaniards. Accommodation had been designed to minimise environmental impact and as much food as possible was organic and home-grown.

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

Excellent. Activities were varied, well planned and very well organised. The accommodation was excellent and the food interesting and varied. Our hosts looked after us extremely well in every way.

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

Pulling over to let a tourist single decker bus pass us on a track high up a mountain in the Ordessa National Park! Oh and visiting a neighbours house with many of the original features intact.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Lots of activity for the brain and the body 12 hours a day! Go prepared for a variety of weather conditions. The excursions are excellent guided treks high in the Pyrenees.

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

All the guides, food and tutors were local so definitely benefitted the local economy.

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

A great way to improve your Spanish and learn about the Pyrenees at the same time. The accommodation, food and hospitality provided were wonderful.

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

An extraordinary vacation in a spectacular region of the Pyrenees. Lucy and Simon were perfect hosts - they have thought of everything for the comfort and well-being of their guests. As a single traveler I greatly appreciated their warm welcome. Their local knowledge of this special place gave me a real insight into the the local culture, history, geology, flora and fauna.. Delicious food and wine freshly prepared from local suppliers was also most welcome. Their exceptional organisation and well thought out itinerary made the week memorable.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Just book it and go! Now!

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

Absolutely. Lucy and Simon take great care in using products locally sourced. The guides were of exceptional ability, and also local. The farmhouse itself is beautifully converted to maintain the charm of this ancient building, but with every modern convenience.

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

Excellent in every respect. I cannot recommend it highly enough
