More than just a holiday

We provide the very best in terms of service, accommodation, travel advice and guides, guaranteeing that the time you spend here is exceptional in every way. We guide you off the tourist track to discover the region’s hidden secrets; its sleepy medieval villages, beautiful countryside, iconic buildings, family-run wineries and atmospheric local restaurants, to provide an authentic travel experience which we combine it with wonderful, handpicked boutique hotels, in stunning locations for you to relax and unwind in.

Our extensive local knowledge and many contacts here mean we are also able to open doors to some incredible places and events that are off limits to most other visitors.

You’ll discover Catalonia’s local traditions and history, its cultural gems and even have the opportunity to take part in some of its much loved local celebrations.

Tailored to your needs

All our holidays are personally crafted to fit your tastes and preferences. If you are interested in the region’s gastronomy, for example, we will plan your holiday with that as a main theme; with exclusive food tours, surprising meals at great restaurants and perhaps even a cookery lesson or two.

Or if you are looking for a family holiday we have plenty of exciting suggestions for you to think about.

Please see the example tours on our experiences page for some more ideas and guide prices.

We want to help you find the perfect holiday here and are happy to work to a range of budgets, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch and let us know what you are looking for.

Our holiday was beautifully organised by Anthony who arranged fast track tickets for the museums, tour guides which we had to ourselves, our restaurant bookings, the hotels and so much more including cots, a babysitter and car seats.
