L Robinson, , Coventry - Aug 2019

I had such a wonderful time. The hosts made me so welcome and I learned a new skill in a relaxing and beautiful environment. Nothing was too much trouble, and I had a mosaic that I can be proud of to take home, and the skills needed to develop my new hobby. Thank you Dan and Viv.

I can highly recommend this holiday. I was made to feel very welcome by Dan and Viv. The pool, food and house were perfect. Dan is an excellent tutor... he’s knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. I really enjoyed learning to do glass cutting mosaic. I also met some fun people along the way.

A lovely place with Dan and Viv. The mosaic course was excellent. Food was lovely at each meal. If in summer, the pool would have been great. It does help if you're used to dogs as quite loud in the evening and during the night with their great dog rescue work..

The most relaxing holiday I have had in years, reconnecting with my self and wellbeing in a safe environment with great hosts, fantastic healthy meals, soothing massage or acupuncture if you wish, peaceful environment to switch off, read or exercise. Comfortable room with great size bathroom and air con. Would recommend to anyone wanting to chill and return home with a piece of work to make you feel proud 5*

Small single bed in single room. Cramp wash room, shower outside. Food good quality though catered towards the vegans also staying I was not offered any other options (not being either vegan or veggie) and it doesn't mention in the description about it being a vegetarian menu.

Reply from Supplier: Thank you for your feedback. As a homestay, offering accommodation in our home, all of our rooms are differing sizes but all with en-suite facilities. All our bedrooms are clean, comfortable and adequate. Please do re-check the GoLearnTo website, it clearly states we are a vegetarian home and that we can cater for other diets such as vegan. As we are not a hotel, we don’t offer a menu option but always ask the guests for any preferred food options.We offer a comfortable stay and use of all our facilities, including the swimming pool, home cooked veggie food, plus in your case the mosaic course, with tuition, materials and a beautiful mosaic to take home. We consider that what we offer is excellent value for price.

I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking for a short break away. Dan and Viv were lovely and made me feel very welcome, and by the end of the stay they felt like friends. The food was wonderful, all homemade, and the retreat was in a superb location too.

I can't say enough great things about my mosaic making holiday in Murcia! The location is inspiring; a small village, a beautiful house and grounds with a pool and an inspiring garden. My room offered all the comforts of home and the food was the best I had throughout my travels in Spain. Dan, the mosaic man, gave our mosaic group personal attention and was alongside us every step of the way, offering help where needed as well as encouraging us to use our own creative ideas. I learned glass cutting techniques, design details and practical mosaic making tips that I've already used now that I am back in the states. I met lovely ladies that made the trip truly special. I even learned a Norwegian card game! Lots of great conversations, wonderful food and creative energy…I can't wait to go back!

Absolutely brilliant stay. Delightful surroundings, delicious vegetarian food. Outstanding, friendly tuition from mosaics artist Dan. I cannot fault my time here and definitely intend to return. I left feeling fulfilled and totally relaxed. Highly recommended.
