"I had a fabulous time!  I thought the singing workshops were fun, uplifting and actually harmonious!  I enjoyed being part of a lovely group which seemed to gel well.  The amount of time seemed just right as we had enough time to chill, and then the option of more singing which worked well.  I also loved the Salsa slot and would have attended more of that, had it been offered (or if there had been enough hours in the day!).  I loved the group room, and the view was stunning.  

We had a fantastic bedroom with the most gorgeous view!  The staff were all friendly and very accommodating.  I loved the food and the way they catered for everyone's needs.  It was also lovely to be able to have the trips out, and the food in the taverna by the sea was delicious!  

The information prior to the trip was fine, and Hannah was very accessible and helpful with all enquiries.  She got onto things very promptly and ensured that it all ran smoothly for us.  

Helen was lovely!  She seems to have an amazing ability to tune to the group's needs and meet them where they are.  I loved the songs she shared with us, and was so impressed at what she wrote, and the many part harmonies she created.  Not having sung for some time,  I was really grateful for the confidence Helen instilled in us individually and as a group.  It was a really special week and I had a wonderful time!

Stefan and Bethan were so sweet and kind.  It seemed that they thought of just about everything before we even realised we needed it!  Thank you all so much.  I feel very blessed to have been part of that week." Jaki Harris
