Activity holidays have become more popular as less people just want to just lie on the beach! With little free time in our busy lives we are seeing more clients wanting to learn a new skill or improving their hobby. With this in mind we have created combination holidays for individuals, families & groups. These are holidays that combine creative courses with other activities, such as cycling, walking, climbing, wind surfing, horse riding, golf, canoeing & many more besides.
For example, discover the benefits that professional tuition in photography can bring to your sports pictures & cultural tours.
Our combination creative holidays are not aimed at any age group, but to the many sports & artistic enthusiasts who want a holiday where they can practice their favourite skill at the same time as taking part in an active sport, discovering the fascinating history of the region, taking a regional wine tour & enjoying some of the wonderful wine & food of the region.
