A mountain holiday with flexibility throughout
On a Collett’s summer walking holiday in the Dolomites, you arrive in the glorious Alta Badia on the day you choose and stay for as long as you wish. Every day – except Wednesdays – you can join one of two breathtaking walks, both free and optional. One is a higher level harder hike, the other a moderate easier walk, rich in flora, fauna and beautiful scenery. There are also organised wildflower walks (June & July), painting strolls, World War walks, easy rambles and road cycle tours. Or you can do self-guided walks of any grade.
Simply choose day to day the option that takes your fancy. Or we can help you do Via Ferrata, glacier treks and various alpine activities. You can plan your days each early evening at Office Hour. Over a pre-dinner drink, browse maps and chat with our walkers, perhaps signing up to one of their walks or using their extensive knowledge to plan self guiding. As for your accommodation the options are excellent: two exquisite hotels, three delightful chalet hotels and attractive self catering apartments.

Our third Colletts holiday, but first time to Andalucia, staying at the Posada La Plaza.
We had an amazing time - it is a really lovely area, with lovely friendly local people. The hotel is beautifully basic and steeped in tradition. "Luxury" it is not, but go prepared for this and enjoy the rustic charm. We absolutely loved it, and there is a wonderfully calming feel about the place (perhaps the history of being a Monestary stays with it!).
The Colletts hosts - Mick, Alison, Max and Chris (and not forgetting Rachel, who was on holiday, but still looked after us!) were fantastic (as ever), offering a great choice of walks every day. They cater for all abilities and are so attentive - and great company at dinner too.
The hotel owner, Gustavo, and his family are amazing - and can't do enough for you - even arranging a day trip to Nerja for us on their "day off" - incredible. We had a couple of small issues on arrival (only one towel and a light bulb out), which we reported and they were fixed instantly.
And to top it - another fantastic group of walkers, making it such a fun and enjoyable week, that we got back and immediately booked our next Colletts holiday!!
Thank you - we had a blast.
