How about a holiday to suit your interest and hobbies?

It's great to go on holiday with like-minded people who share an interest! With much in common from the start you can make friendships fast, share experiences as a group and create fun memories. You might even improve your skills or your knowledge, working with skilled specialists or tutors.

Happy Retreats

If you’d like to visit a tranquil area in Murcia, Spain, just an hour from the airport or from Malaga, to take a break from the bustle of life, this is the place for you! With the focus on wellbeing and restoration, with fun, Happy Retreats will feed mind, body (excellent vegetarian and vegan food) and perhaps, soul!

Staying in a house party atmosphere, with friends, single travellers and couples, you’ll be encouraged to join in yoga, meditation, creative arts, biking or walking in magical surroundings.

The house is set in stunning gardens, think orange and lemon orchards, giant palm trees, with relaxing spots to read in (or snooze) around it and a swimming pool to float or exercise in. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy this beautiful region of Spain, with interesting, uplifting activities to increase your physical wellbeing.

You can even enjoy a day visit if you’re in the area, perhaps as a taster for a longer stay another time.

The name says it all: Happy Retreats.

Personal Touch Holidays

So many of us love to dance, with ballroom and sequence dancing being particular favourites.

Why not take the opportunity to improve your steps and moves with recognised teachers, whilst you’re away in sunnier climes? There’ll be the chance to enjoy what you’ve learnt too, as you take to the floor for dance sessions too.

It may be that lawn bowls is your favourite sport and holidays that take you away to play on new greens have surely got to be fun! Whether you belong to a club, whose members want to travel together, or you’d like to join a group, Personal Touch Holidays can arrange a super trip.

In fact, whatever your interest as a group, be it T’ai Chi, bridge, country music or something else, if you’d like to have a holiday where you can enjoy your hobby and perhaps learn a little more, just ask! A trip for your group can be arranged.
