Imagine. You've got the whole day ahead of you. Yours to fill however you like. Take a dip in the pool, or stroll through stunning historic gardens.

We offer singing and dance workshops, and organise tours and walks to interesting places too, or if you'd rather, just sit back, relax and do nothing at all!
