Organised & Self-guided Walking with a Genuine Specialist
Andy and Katy Leigh
Incredible experience in Zugspitz Arena - Ehrwald
Katy and I have just returned from our 1st ever experience of a 'Collets Holiday' and have been blown away by the sheer beauty of the area, the incredible staff and the friendliness of other guests. So much so, we were rather emotional as we said our goodbyes! The area around Ehrwald was breathtaking and each and every turn offered another viewpoint that made you reach for your camera. The genuine warmth and enthusiasm of Collett's staff, namely Andy, Anna, Ben and Kate was addictive and they routinely went out of their way to provide an unforgettable trip. Their knowledge and experience coupled with their warm personalities definitely made our holiday. They quickly established the capabilities of each guest and recommended routes that matched your fitness levels and ability to tackle challenging and / or exposed paths. The Hotel was exceptional and we had large and beautiful room with a private balcony affording fantastic mountain views. This is a family run hotel and all staff were attentive, friendly and professional. They provided an incredible range of food for breakfast and a similarly varied and plentiful 'salad' prior to the 4 course evening meal. This gorgeous hotel is situated in the centre of the village and it was just lovely to spend late afternoons in their recently opened spa and pool (12 euros per person which is a discounted rate for Collett's customers) . Infra red relaxation beds, steam and sauna rooms, water beds, etc etc. . The daily 6.30pm meetings was a marvellous way to mingle with guests and gain an understanding of the planned routes for the following day whilst enjoying a drink or 2 prior to the evening meal. It is easy to see why so many guests are repeat customers of Collett's and we are already considering a further holiday...hopefully with the fabulous new friends we met this year!
