Softer walking holidays on Menorca
About our softer walking weeks on Menorca.
For sure none of us are getting any younger and, as the years pass, we need to find challenges that are more in keeping with our physical capabilities. This is definitely the case with activity holidays and, in recent years, we've found that some of our guests are starting to struggle with walking 6 or 7 miles a day. For this reason, we're delighted to announce the launch of softer walking weeks for 2019. These holidays will follow much the same format as our standard offering, but with walks of roughly 3 miles and giving plenty of time to enjoy everything about this beautiful island. All other aspects of these weeks are the same as our standard offering. These include, fully backed up and guided walking, great accommodation, plus fine food and wine.
The walks during our softer walking weeks are all of around 3 miles in distance and take place on easy, manageable tracks and paths. Some of these are along the stunning Menorcan coastline and others take in the charming Menorcan countryside and sleepy villages, which seem to come from another time. This holiday is less of a physical challenge and more of a cultural experience, whilst enjoying the outdoors and very much "to be enjoyed not endured". Highlights of the week will be walks taking in the island’s 2 historical cities of Mahon and Ciutadella, plus a visit to a typical Menorcan farmhouse. At all of these we'll build in time for an element of retail therapy
The holidays are based from the wonderful and newly refurbished Girasol Apartments in the quiet south coast resort of Son Bou. Each of our guests will enjoy a 2 bedroom, non shared apartment, set in well kept gardens, around a decent size swimming pool. Each has 2 bedrooms, a large kitchen diner, bathroom and 2 terraces. Girasols Apartments are just a 10 minute walk from the beach and a little closer to the small town of Son Bou with its selection of good quality shops, restaurants and bars.
