Our holidays make up 12% of The Telegraph’s 25 life-changing holidays

It’s not everyday you make it on The Telegraph’s list of 25 holidays that could change your life — but today, we made it three times over!

We are so pleased to have been chosen for spots 1, 12 and 21 with some of our best activity holidays.

Here’s the rundown:

#1: Spanish in Barcelona

In the top spot, our immersive Spanish holiday in Barcelona proves that a language holiday doesn’t mean a stuffy classroom or a boring experience.

Excerpt from The Telegraph:

Live and breathe Spanish 24 hours a day on a week-long course based in your tutor’s house (private room with shared bathroom – own bathroom extra). Students receive 20 one-hour, one-to-one lessons but the key is the continuous immersion in the language. Based in beautiful Barcelona (with free time to explore the city).

#12: Charcuterie in France

Cooking holidays in France have long been one of our guests’ favourites. And now, it’s one of The Telegraph’s, too. For meat lovers, this charcuterie holiday provides the perfect mix of cookery, butchery and local gastronomic experiences.

Excerpt from The Telegraph:

Learn how to prepare Toulouse sausage and pâté at a farmhouse in Gascony. Meat-lovers joint and section a whole pig and produce sausages, pies, terrines and other meat dishes from scratch under the instruction (in English) of local chefs – then sit down to lavish meals cooked by the hosts.

#21: Jewellery making in France

For all the creative souls out there, our jewellery making holidays in Toulouse managed to find their place on the round-up as well. With a choice of polymer to metal clay or glass to silver jewellery, you can also combine this art holiday with cooking if you fancy.

Excerpt from The Telegraph:

Learn to make jewellery using precious metal clays, a technique that enables you to mould precious metals before they are fired. Students produce pieces of pure silver which they have designed and made themselves.

And there you have it — some of our top activity holidays as featured in The Telegraph.
