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!

Flowery

A very successful holiday for me as it was very flexible how much I had to walk. I have Cerubellar Ataxia; i.e. I walk like a drunkard as my balance is afftected. Also I get tired! The idea was for me to do the flower walks and my husband to do harder ones. In the end he had developed a knee problem before we went and so he also did the flower walks. These weere led by excellent, enthusiastic and experienced botanists. As most of the flower walks went near to a road about half way through, and we often stopped for coffee and cake then, I was able to catch a bus back to Corvara at this stage. On the Full Walk called Prologea, Theresa (one of the botanists) helped my husband walk me down the steep meadow so that i did not run away with myself - I was just using my walking poles before then. All the staff were excellent and we were especially impressed by their driving skills. The food was also excellent; diferent but tasty at the Chalet Angelo but more traditional at Chalet Veranda. We hope to go again.

Another Great Holiday

Having been using Collett's for many years now this was yet another great holiday (as to be expected!).
We stayed in Chalet Angelo and it was the first time we had stayed in such a large hosted chalet run entirely by the Collett's team who did an amazing job. Food as usual was done to a great standard and all the team headed by Helen were a great bunch and a real pleasure to get to know and walk with. Watching the team at dinner was more like seeing a well choreographed dance routine the way the entire team worked together.
After walking every day returning to Norfolk has given our legs a bit of a rest!
People often ask us why we always use Collett's and the answer is very simple, it is always a holiday which is guaranteed to deliver a superb time and this year even the rain stayed away.
Many thanks again for a great holiday, see you next year

Sterling Service!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the Collett’s staff involved in setting up and running our recent Picos walking holiday. We had such a marvellous time. The area was stunning and our organisers – Cat, Rachel and George – gave us a wonderful introduction to the surroundings. They were, at all times, kind, helpful, knowledgeable, well-organised and good fun! As this was our first Collett’s hoiday, we were in slight trepidation, not sure what to expect, but we felt at ease soon after arrival and could relax and enjoy it.

The family-run hotel was very comfortable and homely, with very helpful staff. The only improvements we could suggest would be putting fans in the rooms, as it was extremely hot, and perhaps a non-slip mat in the shower.

We will certainly look to book with Collett’s again!

Many thanks once again for a sterling service!

Superb!

We recently returned from a fabulous holiday in Matrei, in Hohe Tauern National Park. Our third holiday with Collett's. A big thank you to the team (Rachel, Emily and Chris) as they were excellent and looked after us really well. The walks on offer were spectacular and we enjoyed every single one, whether they be easy, moderate or hard. The hotel was also very good with lovely spacious rooms (we had a comfort room), the staff were lovely and the food was excellent.
