Choosing a lovely destination? No problem. A hotel not too far from the beach? Check. But a restaurant where we can eat round one big table? Harder than you think.


A hotel owner who values single travellers as much as we do? Quite a challenge.


This programme is the result of all our efforts – an eclectic mix of hotels from family-run two-stars to luxurious all-inclusives.


We rate them, but do read reviews on sites like Tripadvisor, and compare notes with previous guests in the Chat Room. And of course, ask the Friendship Travel team anything you like.


Between us, we’ve been to every destination and hotel, and you should always be able to talk to someone who can answer the question ‘what’s it really like?’

I have always said there are too many fabulous places to see in the world to visit the same place twice. However, after my ninth (yes 9th) visit to BodyHoliday in ST LUCIA in August, I have clearly changed my mind!


I love everything about this famous all-inclusive resort: the Spa treatments that are included, the amazing food, the tropical cocktails, the range of exercise and relaxation classes and especially the wonderful staff, who cannot do enough for their guests, especially the single travellers. I could go every year!


I like to get dressed up in the evenings when I’m on holiday, so I usually ate in the gorgeous Cariblue. I also enjoyed a couple of dinners in Tao, which offers fusion cuisine and it’s really special. Roll on visit number 10!

Our Christmas breaks are very popular every year, and more of you are choosing to spend the festive season with Friendship Travel. We’ve been celebrating at DONNINGTON VALLEY HOTEL in Berkshire for a few years now, and I can see why it’s such a favourite.


I think it’s great that you can get away from home at Christmas, to do something different, yet have all the traditional ‘festive’ stuff laid on for you (without having to peel a Brussel sprout or do the washing up). We have two and three-night breaks, and at Donnington Valley all the meals are included, and lots of wine as well as entertainment and dancing at night. And there’s the Spa and the Golf Course too!

My top tips for this winter are our very own, exclusive SKI HOUSEPARTIES at Chalet Maya and the newly-signed Chalet Refuge & Lodge. I’ve been trying to find the right small and friendly chalets for years – places where we can bring the same cosy Houseparty feel to the slopes as we do to our hotels in Greece and Turkey. I found Chalet Maya in Alpe d’Huez just after the brochure was printed last winter and it was really popular with our skiers. And why not? It is just 100 metres from a ski lift, the hire shop and some great bars.


Now I’m happy to add Chalet Refuge & Lodge in Serre Chevalier to our line-up, and at both chalets we’re including ski school lessons in our great-value packages. These ski weeks are exclusive to Friendship Travel, with friendly Hosts on hand to look after your every need.
