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 week is based from the family run Hotel Loar, which can be found in the village of Ferreries. This charming little town is in the centre of Menorca and has easy access to all of our walks. The hotel also boasts a fabulous roof top pool/jacuzzi area where you can relax and cool off at the end of your day's activities. Ferreries is not a holiday resort, but an actual village where people live and work and this is very much a part of the overall holiday experience. The hotel is just off the main square and has shops bars and restaurants close by, all of which are frequented by the locals. The bars that punctuate the town square are a wonderful base to sit and watch the world go by.
