Just posted our new schedule on the website and bookings are now open for winter 2015-2016.We plan to start the season on 18th November 2015 and run through to 6th April 2016. Last year we booked every place we had available and regrettably had to disappoint several of our clients who left it late to book....so even though we've added some extra weeks going forward our advice still is book early so you can be sure of getting the week you want.
What's new....on our Premium Package, based in the luxury 4-star Hotel Jardin Tecina, we haveswitched to B&B as standard for maximum flexibility and reduced our rate to €850 per person sharing. This allows you to go out for dinner to any of the lovely little local restaurants which are all reasonably good and relatively inexpensive (~ €20 - €25 including wine). However if you feel like a night in the hotel then you can purchase dinner in the buffet restaurant at the special price of €18.50 or indeed if you want to upgrade to half-board and eat in the hotel every night you can do so for an additional payment of €98 (just select this option our booking form.
Our Popular Package remains unchanged at €599 and we will continue to use the delightful self-catering apartments in Bellavista where you will be looked after by Elena and Liz who did such a great job for us last year.
This season we want to welcome new leaders Sean Mullan and Michael McGarrigle who will be joining our little team for some of the scheduled weeks to help preserve my poor old knees for a little longer and hopefully bring some new stories for our returning guests!We will also continue to offer our services to assist self-guided walkers and non-walkers who want help in arranging transfers, ferries and accommodation in La Gomera.
On a separate note for anyone who is interested in Walking Holidays in Ireland (off the beaten track...so to speak) in the summertime we are pleased to recommend two companies that we have developed close relationship with:-Sean Mullan whom we've talked about before (and works with us in La Gomera part-time) runs "Walking & Talking in Ireland" up in the wild Northwest of Donegal and the Antrim coast
Gerry Greensmyth of "Croagh Patrick Walking Tours" based in Westport. In business since 1992 Gerry is probably one of the most experienced walking guides in the country offering a combination of forest trails, mountain paths, coastal track on the Wild Atlantic Way and famine roads in Mayo and Connemara.
Hope everyone has a great summer and that your plans for next autumn/winter will include a trip to La Gomera. Please don't hesitate to contact me if we can help with any information.
