In this new phase the world is in at the moment a touring holiday may not be quite what you need. To this end we have put together a hand-picked collection of hotels that are perfect for staying a little longer; giving you time to relax in to your surroundings, get lost in nature, bathe in luxury and emerge recharged and refreshed and ready to take on the world again.
Each hotel has its unique reason (or reasons) for being part of our collection…… be it the beautiful setting and extensive grounds; perfect for relaxing days with no plans at all. Stunning locations where National Parks, quaint villages, lakes, rivers and mountains are just on your doorstep or hotels where wellbeing has been taken to another level with yoga and exercise classes, kitchen gardens, holistic and creative therapies to nurture and nourish the soul.
Our selection of special places will be coming very soon to our website, but in the meantime please do register your interest with us using the form below -

Our trip through Malaga-Jerez-Seville-Cordoba-Granada went off without a hitch, thanks to your excellent planning. Nick and I are grateful too for your willingness to switch days for the walking tour in Granada - it meant that we were able to enjoy our tour of the Albaicin with Anna, an excellent guide as were Conception in Seville and Carmen in Cordoba. The travel on the train and bus was well timed - appreciated the upgrade too. The hotels you selected were lovely and the staff at each one were helpful in giving directions as well. Your small guide book was also helpful when we were moving around on our own. In Malaga, after an all night flight, we were delighted to follow your directions to the place you suggested for fried fish in the middle of the day. The hotels in Seville, Cordoba and Malaga were outstanding. Please accept our sincere thanks for your contribution to our trip. Moira Carley and Nick Schnitzer.
This is to thank you very much again for all the care and attention you put into organising our recent holiday which I must say surpassed our wildest expectations! We knew we would love Andalucia and the superb weather helped, but we really appreciated all your wonderful extra touches.
The tours of Granada and Seville were excellent value. Conception was lovely! These should be compulsory as we were able to orient ourselves, locate the sights, and more importantly learn of the culture and history in a way that guide books don’t convey.
The Tapas Tour was fantastic fun; we had a great evening, felt at the end we really understood tapas, and tasted iced sherry, some excellent wines. Roger was an excellent source of local knowledge and equally happy to discuss politics and history. We learned a lot about the essence of Andalucia in an extremely pleasant manner.
The relaxing Turkish bath was perfectly timed. We had rather overdone the walking and seen two ruined baths – so we greatly enjoyed the massage in preparation for the next day’s sightseeing.The Flamenco show was also very well chosen. Friends of ours (one of whom is a dancer) warned us of poor flamenco shows, and we were very well impressed with the quality of the show, the liveliness of the participants and the variety of the dancing. I only wish I understood more of the songs!The hotels you chose were exactly the sort we like – central and comfortably quirky!
Our Portugal trip is now behind us but we wanted to thank you for organising such a wonderful experience. We found Lemon Valley on the internet and really just crossed our fingers that you were the company to work with for the trip. We could not have been more delighted with the experience you provided for us. The hotels were outstanding and your itinerary suited us down to the ground.
This was certainly a case of expectations exceeded. Thank you Best regards
We have now returned to Australia after our memorable holiday in Spain and beyond. I just wanted to say thank you for your excellent holiday planning and organisation. Everything went like clockwork....all our hotels were wonderful, the guides in each place were knowledgeable and interesting, and the cars and drivers between each city were terrific. Even though the drivers spoke little English we managed to communicate and have enjoyable adventures together!
We got into the swing of life in Andalucia very quickly, enjoying the food, the atmosphere and the very memorable sights. We particularly enjoyed our day in Jerez with Roger, from A Question of Taste. We have already recommended your company to several other couples, and will continue to do so.
