I wholeheartedly recommend this trip. The walks were varied & were challenging without being overwhelming. The scenery was breathtaking. Hotel Sabacos was comfortable & friendly & the evening meals were excellent, often local specialities & all made from scratch. It was a pleasure & delight to be looked after by Sandy, Jo & Ollie who worked so hard to ensure our group got the most from our stay. Thank you to them, Sabacos staff & my fellow walkers for a wonderful week!
Just returned from a fantastic stay with Collett's in the Pyrenees. The hotel was brilliant and the hotel staff so helpful, friendly and professional. Panticosa and the Pyrenees is fantastic. We did the self-guided option and the staff at Collett's - Jo, Olly and Sandy - were great hosts and gave us detailed advice which enabled us to do some really dramatic and challenging hikes. They also went out of their way to give us lifts and show us Panticosa. I have hiked across the mountains of Europe and this was one of the best trips I have been on.
I stayed with you in the Dolomites last year and the hospitality of your "non-guides" was as outstanding as a remembered. Knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and just always eager to help...but none of it forced. A great combination with excellent non-guides. choice of hotel was also excellent with equally friendly and accommodating staff. Why Collett's? I travelled with you last year and had an excellent time, so once i decided to go hiking there was no other choice.
Value for money? Very much so. Excellent accommodation, well organised transfers not only to/from the airport, but also to/from hiking locations, and when I looked into the UK it was more expensive staying at home!
Previous year’s wonderful experience in the Dolomites. The customer service of your staff is what makes the hiking experience outstanding!
Just enjoyed a fabulous week walking the Collett's classics. This is the 2nd time we have holidayed with Collett's (Dolomites in 2018). Great location, lovely hotel and excellent food. No trouble catering for one of our friends (Ray) in the party who was 100% gluten free.
The walking was fabulous and even on the one rainy day Collett's arranged a magical ride up into the mountains on a little train pulled by a tractor - fabulous!
The Collett's crew of Sandy, Ollie and Jo were such good hosts. Not only did they organise practically everything for us but they were also great fun (we did have some laughs) and very knowledgeable. We will never forget the amazing evening in the village hall where we watched a Charlie Chaplin film 'The Gold Rush' with the music being played live and in perfect sync by a local pianist - wasn't expecting that! Some more great memories made!!
We wanted an 'easy' holiday with transfers, hotels and varied walking. We certainly got this and more with great and attentive Collett's staff, a really good hotel and stunning walks in the central, highest part of the Pyrenees. The Colletts staff were excellent with their attention to detail, great humour and calm approach. A really good holiday and many thanks to all concerned.
Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my recent holiday with Collett's - the walk organisers Jo, Ollie and Sandy went out of their way to help guests and were fun to walk with. The Hotel Sabocos was of a very high standard and the staff there were very accommodating, even serving gazpacho on the last meal! Many thanks for making this week really enjoyable; I will be back.
Outstanding time in the Pyrenees! Our holiday in the Austrian Tyrol with Collett's last year was so successful we wanted to book a different location for a week's walking this year. Apart from the Austrian Tyrol which we visited last year, we have heard other guests speak very highly of the Dolomites as a Collett's destination.
Quite simply the best holiday we have ever had with Collett's!
This is one of the best walking holidays I've had, the Pyrenees are a very striking mountain range a d not to be missed.
The selection of walking route's were superb and a full day out in the fabulous mountain scenery. On our walks the companions were considerate to everyone's needs and very knowledgeable superb company as well. The office hours really set you up to understand the next days walk.
Overall great value for money ( food was excellent) and excellent challenging walks in a beautiful part of Europe.
