Mosaics making holiday

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..

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.

F Baroffio, Geneva, Switzerland - Dec 2016

Pilates and boot camp holiday

Dan and Viv really are high quality teachers. I had a lot of benefits, apart from creating something beautiful. Some of them linked to the mosaic and the various exercices (Pilates, yoga and gym). The rest of them due to the good atmosphere, the rest, the enjoyment of their cooking, which were also very important. A very good place to build up a new strength when needed, Or for a holiday.

It was a nice break - but I would have liked to have been told that I was going to be the only one there.

Mosaics making holiday

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!

We had a great time at Vivienne's place. The house is in a quiet village not far from the coast, and there is a lot of nature to enjoy. Vivienne and Dan are great hosts. We learnt a lot about Pilates and Vivienne is an outstanding teacher, we both found our posture improved dramatically. Thank you!

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.

C Blum, Hamburg, Germany - Apr 2014

Pilates and boot camp holiday

I had a lovely stay with Viv and Dan-they have created a truely relaxing and very friendly retreat. Being a single traveller for the first time, I felt very welcome and completely comfortable. After 7 days of the Pilates and boot camp experience I leave as a more toned, flexible and more relaxed me!

Excellent teacher really tailored the classes to individuals. Food was simple home cooking but could have been slightly better.

C Cox, Douglas , UK - Jun 2012

Pilates reformer holiday

It was a pleasure to stay with Viv and Dan; they are both truly lovely people who worked hard to ensure that their guests had as restful a holiday as possible. The standard of tuition was excellent and the food was very enjoyable - home cooking at its best. I am hoping to return next year.

fab weather and accommodation.Furthermore the pilates instruction was excellent. The owners were very accommodating however the lifts/taxis will take up quite a bit of your budget

C Dall, Glasgow, Unitied Kingdom - Aug 2011

Pilates reformer holiday

We really enjoyed our Yoga and Pilates break, it was very relaxing and our hosts made us feel very welcome. The pilates classes were rewarding and engaging and have encouraged my interest in this type of exercise. Yoga was also good but I would perhaps have welcomed another class in this.

M Omurchu, London, UK - Jun 2011

Pilates reformer holiday

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my stay with Viv and Dan. They are such wonderful hosts and truly beautiful people! I felt as though I were amongst friends from the moment I arrived and a great balance achieved between expert tuition and a relaxing haven. A home from home.

J Milnes, London, UK - Jun 2011

Pilates reformer holiday

I had a great stay, really lovely villa, very friendly and brilliantly relaxed atmosphere. The most useful thing about the course itself was helping to fine tune my technique to take back to UK classes. Also learning specfically what I should personally be aware of to get the most out of my pilates.

J Tracy, Glasgow, Scotland - Nov 2010

Pilates reformer holiday

I was a complete beginner to pilates & yoga. Tara was very knowledgeable and patient. She was very good at tailoring what she did to my needs. I have returned very relaxed and keen to find an equally inspiring teacher at home.

J Thomas, Kingston, UK - Oct 2010

Pilates reformer holiday

The bigger dogs are noisy in the morning so not a good idea if you want a lie in. Quite remote so you will need to factor in budget for transport. Cartagena is well worth a visit.

Reply from Supplier: Even though the dogs are kept in kennels away from the house, occassionaly they can still be heard. We're glad that apart from this, you had an enjoyable trip.
