Rosemary was extremely helpful in organising a family holiday in 2017 so we naturally went back to her to organise our 2018 holiday. She provided a good range of suitable holiday options from which we were able to choose one. I would definitely recommend her services.

Travelled to southern US recently on vacation, Rosemary arranged the whole trip. We arrived the same day as Hurricane Irma. Some of our hotels had closed due to storm damage. Rosemary was very proactive, dealt directly with hotels and was always available with advice, couldn't ask for a better service. 10 out of 10!!

We are just back from our family holiday in Argles sur Mer in the Languedoc region of the South of France. This year we decide to do a camping holiday and we stayed at Camping La Front de Mar. This beautiful area was approx. 30mins from Perpignan airport and very accessible, you have the option if you would like to hire a car to explore but it’s not necessary as everything is in walking distance to you. The camp site we stayed was Camping La Front de Mer. It was a lovely campsite and not too big although there...

This year our family holiday took us to Castel Montgri campsite in L'Estartit. My kids just love the mobile home style holiday, the freedom, the safety, and eating Alfresco at the mobile! L'Estartit is a beautiful area of the Costa Brava. It’s just a 40min transfer from Girona airport and a taxi cost approx. €70 each way. You don’t need to have a car as it’s very accessible to all the surrounding areas. The campsite offers a free bus to the centre running from 9am - 6pm daily and there is also a local bus stop right outside the campsite...

We flew with Virgin Airlines into Montego Bay. I booked the bulk head seats which gave the extra leg room and certainly makes all the difference. Entertainment on board was excellent – I managed to watch 2 movies and relax and have a nap. When we arrived in Jamaica Montego Bay airport, we were met by Torrence and his lovely team from the Jamaican Tourist Board. They transferred us to our hotel the Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay which only took 20 mins, so nice and short. We stayed at the Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, a fabulous...

This year our family holiday took us to the Bela Italia Campsite in Lake Garda. It was a different experience for us as a family as we had never done the camping style holiday before. We always did All-Inclusive in Spain or Portugal but I felt this year the children were older and were looking for something different. We just fell in love with Italy. The little village of Pescheria was so picturesque. We were staying nearby so it was very easy to either walk or cycle into Pescheria in the evening. There are so many beautiful restaurants and...

After flying Business Class with KLM Airlines to Buenos Aires I was so excited to explore this wonderful city. We had a very busy itinerary ahead of us with so much to see in the 8 days. I knew it was going to be an amazing journey. On arrival we met with our Tour Guide Francesca and our driver transferred to the Alvear Art Hotel which is approx. 40 minutes from the airport. We spent the first night at this lovely city centre hotel. The first day we did a sightseeing tour of the city including a short walking...

In May 2012 I was lucky enough to experience my 2nd visit to this wonderful Island getaway. The first time I was there was in March 2005 when my fiancé and I headed off to get married in Mauritius. Paradise was awaiting us. That's how I describe it to anyone. It is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The people are so friendly they cannot do enough to make your stay so memorable. We got married a couple of days after we arrived. The wedding co-ordinators were so nice they organised everything for...

On the 30th Aug 2008 my husband, little daughter and I travel spent a 1week family holiday on the lovely island of Majorca. I stayed at the Lagotel Hotel and Apartments.

In May 2008 I visited the beautiful island of Barbados. Barbados has so much to offer. It has lots of art, activities, nightlife, music, history and some of the best restaurants to be found anywhere. But what makes Barbados even more special, and now I know the reason why so many visitors keep returning to the island year after year, is the people. Barbadians, called Bajans, are warm and friendly souls, always ready to greet you with a sincere smile. Barbadians make you feel welcome and special, in this lovely Caribbean Island. You will feel it's your home and will...

I took my husband to Barcelona in February. The main reason for going was so that we could take in a match at the Nou Camp. On the Sunday we went to see Barcelona play in the New Camp. Great atmosphere. We also did the tour of the stadium the following day. We found it easy enough to get tickets for the match. We went to the stadium 2 hours before the match and bought the tickets at the ticket box. Barcelona has so much to be excited about. Within minutes of our first walk along...
