Albania is a truly stunning location, with hospitable people and this trip enabled us to experience so many beautiful spots. Each day was packed with active adventures - a whole days paddle boarding, drifting down a river, with no-one else on it in the sunshine, with coffee cups of fruit dangled down from a bridge for us. Hiking in the Accursed mountains and Mount Timorr with expert guides and tasty picnics. River wading, swimming, jumping off ledges in the stunning Osumi Canyon. A crash course in Albanian history and fresh, delicious food - cherries, watermelons, nectarines, seafood, meats, cheeses and homemade breads, filo pies and salads. A beautiful rest, swimming in the Ionian sea and relaxing on the beach. The accommodation at each location was great - clean with ensuite facilities and free wifi. Our thanks go to our guide Aldo - who drove for miles, educated us, kept us safe and facilitated such a fun week. A wonderful trip and highly recommended for anyone happy with early starts to fit in daily adventures.

The most secluded, unspoilt, beautiful part of Montenegro. Villa Miela is a wonderful, comfortable place to stay with Tobi and Adel who are the most amazing hosts and do everything they can to make your stay perfect. The pool has the best view overlooking the valley. There is a shaded deck area for keeping cool when you want to relax and read or do yoga. The treks are incredible, you don’t see anyone else. We had the whole of Lake Skadar to ourselves on our kayaking day apart from all the Pelicans, herons, cormorants and egrets we saw. The hikes were just the right distance interspersed with swimming in secluded pools, waterfalls and rivers. The wildlife is fabulous we saw horseshoe bats, toads, snakes, tortoises and frogs. I recommend the breakfast box for the first day. It is delicious, plentiful and essential as no shops are open on Sunday. I also recommend bringing food to eat for lunch on Sunday if you don’t want to walk into town to the restaurants.

Great active holiday for grown-up family (children 25 plus partner, 20 & 18 with special needs). Hosts Toby and Adele were relaxed and flexible, adopting their schedule to best suit us, ensuring everyone was included. We were suitably exhausted at the end of each day's adventure. Highlights being the local toad hunt each night, exploring behind a waterfall and kayaking among pelicans. Paul Ashworth

We had a perfect time at Villa Miela! Tobi and Adél were the perfect hosts - so sweet, welcoming and attentive and very knowledgeable about everything local. The vibe was very relaxed and just felt like being on a big family holiday. The villa is absolutely gorgeous, overlooking a lush green valley and even spotting Lake Skadar between the mountains. We had so much fun on the activity days, and saw so much wildlife! Tobi and Adél made sure that everyone could be involved, even if they weren’t able to do for instance the 10K hike. Great food with local families, unbelievable wild swimming spots and an absolutely delightful group of fellow guests who we had so much fun getting to know. Would absolutely recommend 💚 Alex & Frix
