An ideal setting

We stay in a beautiful location on the Mediterranean coastline. You can bask in the sunshine on the sandy beach and swim in the warm, clear waters of the Mediterranean. If you're feeling more active, there is so much to do - hire boats, play volleyball, explore the shops.

Our hotels have an outdoor pool and are located in the coastal towns of Calella and Pineda de Mar. In May we stay in a three-star hotel and in October we stay in a four-star hotel. 

For the May group, our minimum age is lowered from 7 to 3 years old (if accompanied by an adult). All ages will follow the same programme, including excursions and evening meetings as they wish to do. 

Update (correct 23.09.21): If you have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before the holiday, you do not need to do any Covid tests before travelling. The UK government ask us to do one test when we get back to the UK (approx. £50). Full details will be sent after booking

 

Exploring the local landscapes

Our optional package of three excursions takes us to explore the highlights of the area - Barcelona, Montserrat and Girona with Tossa de Mar.

In Girona, a walk along the old city walls provides an excellent view, while the shops below have lots of interesting items to browse. The river sweeps through the town, just as it did when it brought prosperity in Roman times. 

When the Romans captured Tossa de Mar it was already a city full of history. Attractive backstreets provide an interesting area to explore and the medieval fortifications that still enclose the old town offer stunning views over the sandy beach.

 
 

A world-class city

We visit Barcelona, one of the Mediterranean’s most important cities. It is packed with interest and sizzles with creativity. Our coach stays with us to take us between the key sites. The art nouveau buildings created by Gaudi are astonishing, especially his unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia.

La Rambla is the most famous pedestrian precinct in Spain and is alive at all hours of the day and night - the shops, street vendors, cafés and street acts provide the entertainment.

Together with the beach, museums, parks and waterfront entertainment, you are sure to find something to do in Barcelona!

 
 

Dramatic scenery at Montserrat

We drive through arid, desert-like scenery on our third excursion as the coach climbs to the ancient Benedictine monastery of Montserrat. The scenery has natural beauty, high amongst the mountains with spectacular views. The monastery has many treasures to see and the mountains provide stunning walks and cable car rides.

We meet each evening for a helpful Bible talk and a time of singing.

With the wide, sandy beaches and the attractive towns, this is a winner in every way!

Arrange your own travel
SX: The cost includes as above for 'SA', apart from flights, airport taxes and charges.

Click 'view' on the applicable 'SA' dates above to see the relevant group flight times.

NB The cost of the own travel option is higher than the coach cost because it includes an extra night compared to the coach option (the Oak Hall coach leaves on Friday evening at the end of the holiday)

Please note: if there are any changes to the tour, we would not be able to cover the cost of changes to your independent flights. We would therefore recommend joining the holiday using our flights if possible.
