A great holiday regardless if you are solo or with friends. After 8 days immersed in Spanish both language and way of life, you get home knowing more Spanish and more people. Good with a lot of walking to balance the good for and wine.

This was one of the best holidays we have had. We had breath-taking walks and talks, Spanish class and conversation (adapted to our different linguistic levels), excellent company, good food and drink, and lots of cultural and historical experiences.

A great way to learn Spanish and get a bit fitter in a wonderful place with a fabulous host - but you won't lose weight as the food is delicious
