In pictures – Trail Walking Holidays with Collett's
The Flower Leader, David Charlton made this holiday extra special, with his enthusiasm, local knowledge, plant recognition and constant willingness to answer questions.
I had a great week in the Pyrenees with Colletts. The staff were totally amazing and great company. There were plenty of flowers to be found at each site that had been carefully chosen to provide the enthusiast with different varieties.
I have just returned from the walking holiday in Ehrwald and just wanted to express our thanks to everyone involved in the organisation. Your staff were extremely professional and very helpful at all times. It was certainly one of the best holidays I have had and will certainly be going again next year with Collett's although it may b(Read more...)
We were looking at other companies for a walking/scenery flora holiday but Collets website was the best and brightest and easy to use to check accommodation - also the small traditional guest houses looked much more homely and comfortable and more suitable for us as an older couple and not keen on busy noisy places x also nice to be l(Read more...)
Your young staff in Chalet Haus Valentin were really well chosen. every one was kind, patient, helpful & knowledgeable to us 'oldies'.. & really made the holiday special.. grazie mille
Corvara is a perfect location surrounded by majestic mountains, Alpine meadows, and many walks; also an efficient and cheap bus service for local venues. The self-catering apartment was excellent, even wifi. The young hosts/guides were outstandingly helpful, sociable, and efficient. My long-held dreams holidaying in the Dolomites were(Read more...)
This was our third holiday with Collett's and as always the staff, George, Rachel, Duncan and Ben were amazing. The accommodation was spectacular and the walks were beautiful and not too challenging, across lovely countryside and quaint towns and villages. The other guests were great company too.
The most memorable feature for us w(Read more...)
What an amazing week we had walking part of the Northern route of the Camino de Santiago. Certainly a challenge and hilly but with the right shoes, preparation and muscle rub - achievable! Spectacular scenery and attention to detail on route cards. Javier, the local agent was always on hand if needed and a very good communicator. H(Read more...)
My first mountain walk, I've skied & run them but never hiked. I enjoyed a lot. Unfortunately the weather on several days was not that good but that's due to the early season I guess. On the plus side the plants were flourishing & not burnt. Location was a good base to view the area & the walk guiding was excellent. Food & wine includ(Read more...)
Collett's was recommended to me by a work colleague. I enjoy walking but my family do not and my walking partner is getting over an injury. I booked with you because I didn't want to walk alone and fancied a sunny week with varied walks. Mick, Mark and Helen were all very good. Mick was able to share lots of local knowledge and I real(Read more...)
I have stayed with Colletts in the Dolomites numerous times, in the Pyrenees, Austria, the Picos and Leyburn. Without a doubt 'Team Colletts' in Andalusia surpassed everything before it. This was another great trip that I will look back on with fondness. Mick was a star, closely followed by Mark and George. The "A Team', if ever there(Read more...)
Bracun was a great apartment. Marcus was very helpful, and the maid was very good. We liked the sauna, steam room too.
All the team were very helpful, friendly and welcoming.
We’d our own thing most of the time, but enjoyed ski days out with Sandy and Robin, and Julia enjoyed her snow-shoe day with Alex.
We have been (Read more...)
Ski guiding was fantastic, staff were always available, knowledgeable and eager to help. The whole setup was conducive to a great atmosphere in the chalet and led to easy social interactions with other guests.
Clare, Bolton Ben and Ben were all excellent and we skied with each of them twice, they were a pleasure to be with and our holiday was made by them. We were lucky as the resort was very quiet and we had some of the slopes to ourselves! Everything was organised to suit us so we consider ourselves very lucky. Rob did our transfer which (Read more...)
Tuscany was a fantastic experience,with beautiful scenery. The accommodation in the Annex was very comfortable, with a touch of luxury. It had a lovely rustic charm. The family and their helpers were friendly and the food was very good, a self-service breakfast and a plentiful evening meal.
Last of all, I can't praise George, Duncan,(Read more...)
I made a late enquiry. Your staff (esp Peter Critchlow) most helpfully found me a room in Chalet Gumina near to Haus Valentin, with access to the skiing programme and meals in HV.
Have travelled with Collett's several times before and know that I am likely to meet compatible people with whom I can ski - as I come out on my own. Als(Read more...)
This was our first time skiing in the Dolomites - the skiing is extensive and the slopes are very well maintained. The local Collett's team were excellent. Their professionalism and enthusiasm greatly enhanced our holiday experience.
As always admin staff in the office friendly, helpful and informative when making pre-holiday enquiries.
Fabulous location and welcoming and friendly staff. Wow factor view from our room. Fantastic food. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Rigo. Enjoyed the wine tasting too! Thank you. The walks were fabulous, well researched givi(Read more...)
We enjoy walking and have done many guided walking holidays. Collett's were advertising in Ramblers magazine (I think) and a specialist walking company. Had a great holiday. Planning to join you again next year. In Tuscany only 6 out of 22 guests were new to Collett's! Many recommendations were for Dolomites, winter and summer, so that’s next!
The staff were all fantastic as usual, both during office hour and on the walks. A great choice of walks in a beautiful location. We are regular customers who love the Collett's formula. Thank you for introducing walking in Tuscany in the spring and autumn. We had an excellent holiday as usual.
Reason for coming with Collett's - The Walking, Tuscan Scenery, walking with Collett's, Historic Towns, Village Destinations, Food & Wine. The interaction between various members of staff was particularly impressive, both in the office and in-country. The repeat Collett's walkers gave great advice on where else to go. They are your be(Read more...)
I'd like to thank Collett's and its outstanding staff for such an amazing first experience of a Collett's holiday. My partner and I had a wonderful first experience of your company from the very start. The on-site staff were exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and attentive. Ben, Rachel, Duncan and George could not have d(Read more...)
A huge thank you to your staff, Millie, Alex, Ollie, Jim, James and Justin at Haus Valentin. Despite it being a difficult week for them personally with illness and injuries they ensured all guests were well looked after and their holiday expectations met.
Thanks also to Caroline your area manager who managed a large ski group to C(Read more...)
We were particularly impressed by the outstanding knowledge of the area, and professionalism, of Caroline (Manager, based in Arabba) who came over and led one of the ski days with us. She pointed out interesting local features throughout the day, explained the mountain topography, and answered our numerous questions happily. Complete (Read more...)
Collett's staff in House Valentin couldn't do enough to help us. My daughter and I had a fantastic holiday. Cleanliness was of a very high standard and the food was great. Thank you to all of them.
