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

The Pyreness themselves; the stunning scenery , hiking and swimming were out of this world.

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

Go with an open mind and embrace all the activities. Stick to the provided kit list as you'll definitely need everything they suggest! Hiking boots and river shoes are a must. I also found having a water bladder extremely useful over a water bottle.I wouldn't join this retreat if you are an avid yoga enthusiast. Yoga is once each morning which was perfect for me being a beginner but if you want more than that then this isn't for you. This retreat is more rounded with the hiking, nutrition and meditation as well.

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

Yes. We visited the local town to support the local vendors. Lucy and Simon are very environmentally conscious; growing their own vegetables and promoting that we don't leave a mark on the places we visit; no litter etc.

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

An absolutely fantastic experience. Lucy, Simon and their two girls are welcoming and accommodating from start to finish. Everyday was an adventure and brought something new.

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

There were too many memorable moments on this yoga & wellness retreat but if I had to choose one it would have to be the meditation with the horses. Personally I am frightened of horses but by the end of the trip the horses were breathing on the back of my neck & I was resting my head on theirs, it was an incredible experience.

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

If you are going to book this retreat you must start it with an open heart & absorb every last minute of every day. Pack some sturdy walking boots & a camera is a must. Apart from that just relax & be prepared to be absolutely spoilt & treated like one of the family.

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

Most definitely

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

This retreat was the best experience I have had as a vacation. Simon & Lucy were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Their daughters Penny & Sophia are adorable & were so much fun to be around, the best behaved children I have ever met. The food was delicious, it was vegetarian & who would of thought you could have such a variety of meals, all explained to us as served & presented like a 5* restaurant. The sense of wellbeing on this trip is magical, you seem to float the whole time. Surrounded by superb scenery from when you wake till you go to sleep. I've already reserved my place for next year. AMAZING

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

Seeing the Spanish Pyrenees every day , walking in the lovely countryside surrounding the village, walks in Ordesa National Park, yoga in a small group wth individual attention.

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

Take good walking boots, suitable for rough terrain, and plenty layers of warm practical clothing.

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

The yoga teachers and guide lived locally. Food was sourced locally. The owners of the guest house had restored and converted a beautiful old farmhouse and barns into a property that fits well with the surrounding village, using local materials and labour. Care had been taken to source and install eco friendly heating, windows and French doors.

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

Fantastic; I enjoyed every minute. Simon and Lucy are wonderful hosts and worked tirelessly to ensure everything ran smoothly. The yoga teachers and guide were excellent.
