Why we are different.

At Life Holidays we want you to have an experience, not just a holiday. Many of our guests are singles and its one of the main reasons why we don't charge a single supplement on any of our holidays. Included in every holiday is luxury private accommodation, lessons, all meals, drinks, excursions and activities, private minibus transport both to and from the airport and during your holiday. It's fair to say that if you are not tempted by the local shops you don't need to spend a single penny during your vacation.

One guest said she could not believe the quality of the villa, the food and the drink on offer. Everything was made using fresh locally sourced produce, Gourmand she called it!

What our guests have to say...

Wow. Where do I start?

The accommodation was fantastic, first class.

Luca and Paulo such lovely and knowledgeable people; really enjoyed the cooking lessons. Angela was really attentive, just great.

The excursions were brilliant - the boat trip was so personal and what a great team they are.

We really bonded with the group and everyone was so friendly.

It was refreshing to have pilates with Amanda, she made it fun and pleasurable.

Fresh  food three times a day it was awesome !

I would just like to say a big THANK YOU for hosting such an enjoyable holiday.


Not only did I eat drink and was merry ( very, on some occasions)  but I learnt a lot too.

A winning combination in my book!


I really enjoyed the Photography and felt that I got such a lot out of it even if I felt a bit like a ‘mole’ on occasions. 

It was so useful to see other people’s work and to discuss how we could all improve our submissions.

David will be sitting on my shoulder saying ‘less is more’ constantly! 

The lesson on ‘seeing’ I learnt in Erice will stay with me forever.


I am now a great fan of the ‘Zip and hollow’ mantra…..thank you Candice for letting me join the pilates classes as well.
