From
£790

I loved the whole thing. The Pilates, meditation and Chi Gung tuaght by Ionos made me feel like a new woman after the week in Pelion...the sumptuous home cooking and amiable comraderie around the square table hosted by Pip and Nick...the splendid accommodation with views across the water to mountains. There is no one stand out. It was as a delight all round. (more)Steph Tchan
The Pilates, meditation and Qi Gong sessions were held in a stunning setting on the terrace by the water - morning and evening, the lapping Pelion sea worked its spell. Ioannis the instructor/therapist/healer is a special individual, and his instruction is imbued with gentle humour. (more)Janine Hollins
There is something very special about the tour operator we went with. It's a complete getaway. You can't help but feel calm and slow down. I was there for 2 weeks - the pilates/wellness week with the marvellous Ioannis and then the yoga week with the angel like Molly. (more)Alison Fraser

Great. We loved it and rated our time in Panes the best part of our month in Spain and Portugal. We even looked at the price of houses in the region! (more)Diane Norman
It's difficult to choose a favourite (part) as all aspects were brilliant. The course was just right with the right amount of challenge, and Ana organised the transfers, accommodation and treks efficiently. (more)Chandra Kantha
The scenery was so stunning but Jesus had selected an easy path so we could spend our time staring at the scenery as we walked. We then stopped for a beer at a very picturesque village. A great day! (more)Margaret Barretto

Excellent - if you want a friendly open hearted place to stay and learn to dive then I couldn't recommend it more highly. (more)katherine Church
Do not hesitate to book this vacation! The people are fantastic, the place is beautiful and the more relaxed nature of the area due to its more remote location made for a far more relaxing vacation than you would have at other resorts in the region The whole operation was centred around local people and the local economy. We were actively encouraged to reduce our environmental impact and respect the environment which we were lucky enough to see (more)Gareth Jones

The dancing was amazing, hilarious, fun and depending on how much you put into it - painful due to bad shoes! But totally worth it. The people there - I can't describe how warm and welcoming they are. The dancers, the guides.... everybody I met in fact. (more)Britt Voll
One of the best moments was probably snorkeling in the Bay of Pigs area near Play Giron, and then of course all the salsa dancing, both in classes and in the evenings! (more)Anniina Simula

Torrox is a lovely village which really gives you the sense of being in 'real' Spain. Being taken to various locations, offered photography tuition and advice in a relaxed atmosphere is a fantastic way to spend a week - a great balance of focussing on a hobby while also being looked after on vacation.
