Friendliness and enthusiasm
Hi Viv, Just a quick note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Collett's in the Picos de Europa last month. We were fortunate with the weather, and the accommodation and food were very good. However, what made the week memorable was the friendliness and enthusiasm of the Collett's staff at the venue. Ric, Sarah, Dom and Tom were all great company and went out of their way to ensure that we had a good time. We recall that the packed lunches they produced were also very good We hope to return to the Picos in the fuiture, but maybe slightly later in the season when the walks at the top of the Fuente De cable car are not blocked by snow (unseasonally late this year). One tiny item that could possibly be improved on was the afternoon tea/coffee arrangements, as sometimes the facilities were not available or the milk was not easily accessible (but we understand the problem of the staff not living on site, as they do in the Dolomites). But in the great scheme of things it is a trivial point. So thanks again, and we hope to holiday with Collett's again before too long. Kind regards, David and Annette Pickering.
