Fantastic walking in Andalusia
The This is our second holiday with Colletts, having already visited the Picos. The location was at the head of the valley with fantastic views down to the sea and other small villages containing orchards of oranges,lemons, avocados, pomegranates and almonds. The hotel and restaurant opposite each other in the Plaza is an ideal venue being very quiet and private. Our host Gustavo and his family are extremely friendly and helpful serving an excellent variety and quality of evening meals supplemented by endless wine! (often eating \”al fresco\” in the Plaza)
Your own transport is not required as Gustavo provides any local journeys and transfer pickups are provided to & from the airport.
Our guides Mick, Kelly and James were informative, friendly and very professional in their work. They were ambassadors for Colletts and well chosen for dealing with all levels of walkers. Being someone who suffers with vertigo Colletts allow me the opportunity and confidence to climb mountains with support, that I would not otherwise do. Thanks again. A great holiday
We had a week in Chalet Verena with 2 children aged 11 & 9 in August 2014. We loved the flexibility to go out as a family, or in a larger group, the chance to meet the other guests and their children (Jenga is very competitive, and a surprisingly good spectator sport!). The staff were outstanding – engaged, informed, extremely enthusiastic and full of excellent tips, ideas and anecdotes. A first class, really friendly holiday.
One of our best holidays ever!
From initial enquiry to our departure we were delighted with the professional and fantastic service we received. After speaking with Kelly in the office after my initial enquiry I really felt Collett’s was for us – so efficient and helpful. Thank you.
Dafydd met us at the airport for our transfer to Ehwald. He was excellent especially as we had to travel through a rather scarey thunderstorm making conditions very difficult. He drove very carefully.
As our first holiday with Collett’s we thoroughly enjoyed office hour . The 4 members of the team , Kelly, Dafydd, Kate and Claire were always helpful , happy approachable and knowledgeable. All such lovely young people who helped us have such a fabulous walking holiday. We enjoyed meeting other holiday makers during office hour and have made some great friends. We enjoyed all our walks very much made all the better by the lovely staff who accompanied us . We felt very safe on all our walks . The staff were very clear at every briefing that they were NOT qualified guides and we always ran through necessary equipment etc before heading off.
Just to say thank you – we had a fabulous holiday and we can not praise your staff enough – they are an amazing young team who are clearly passionate about walking and outdoor life . One of our best holidays ever!
Family and self just recently returned from Ehrwald , had a great time walking on various routes in spectacular scenery with good company. Every afternoon returned to Hotel Sonnespitze which is well run and very comfortable.
This is our 7th Colletts holiday and cannot wait for our next !!!
Thanks to Kelly,Kate, Clare,and Dafydd for making our holiday so memorable.
Great Place, Great Staff
Spent a good week at Chalet Verena, Corvara with our ten year old son. Scenery stunning (apart from when cloud was down). First trip with Colletts and especially liked the freedom to choose a led walk (several on offer each day) or do our own thing. Lots of other children there, which was good. Staff plentiful, helpful and enthusiastic. Chalet very comfortable and quiet (although very central in village).
First attempt we tried the easy walk, were encouraged to do something more challenging the next day and loved it. group sizes enough to have varied conversations but not too big as to be spread out.
Keen and enthusiastic staff, even though very early season and they were still learning the routes – they looked as though they loved what they were doing.
Having had two previous skiing holidays in Corvara, we had no hesitation in choosing you for our first walking holiday.
The resort team led fantastically by Kelly were a great team, interesting and interested people who were a credit to the Company. They interacted with a wide age range of clients very well and always had a smile. Robert and Lesley added another dimension all of which helped.
thank you for a great holiday – we will be back
The staff were extremely efficient and helpful when we decided to have a day surfing and a day canoeing. They gave us clear directions, companies to use, where to park etc and in the case of the canoeing booked the whole thing for us in advance, so all we had to do was turn up and show a confirmation email. No hassle at all for us.
We were fully aware that what we did was at our own risk. Apart from the first day we walked independently. On the first day the rep did check we had waterproofs, water etc. and had contact nos.
The reps at Tama were all lovely. They were extremely friendly, hospitable and helpful. The staff at the Posada were also great, making us feel very much ‘at home’.
2nd great holiday
This is our second time at Collett’s. We spoke to people on their first trip who were bowled over by their experiences. As a small company, it offers a more personalised approach as well as high standards of service. The organised walks allow people of various fitness the opportunity to achieve more then they thought they would achieve, whilst affording those with experience the opportunity to walk or via ferrata independently. Your staff are friendly, approachable and always willing to help.
Walking in the Dolomites
We had heard from other walkers than you were specialists in the Dolomites and we particularly like this area. Also attracted by the more informal nature of the holiday and opportunities to vary activities. It was a different experience to other holiday companies. Liked the different options for accommodation too.
We thought all of the staff at chalet Angelo were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and friendly and worked hard to give guests a good holiday. Liked the informal atmosphere in the chalet.
Amanda who drove us to corvara from venice airport was an exceptionally good driver and host.
5th Holiday with Collett’s
This was our 5th holiday with Colletts and we have always had an excellent experience. We had parents with us and its a perfect holiday to share as there is a level which can suit all ages and abilities.
The staff were brilliant and the weather even perked up! Yes absolutely. The accommodation, food, wine and service was well worth the money.
