Brilliant active holiday..
My boys (14 and 15) and I had an absolutely brilliant time on our holiday with Wearactive. The island of Vis is magical with crystal clear sea, loads of idyllic coves to explore and two beautiful towns. Craig, Xania and Simone enabled us to make the most of our time organising loads of different activities and giving us great recommendations. We cycled, kayaked, paddle boarded, swam, slack lined and snorkelled in perfect locations accompanied by Craig and Simone both of whom clearly love being outdoors and so inspired us all. Xania cooked delicious food loved by the veggies and meat-eaters alike and when we weren’t eating in they arranged lovely places to eat including dinner at a vineyard which we highly recommend. I even got to do yoga by the sea before the teens surfaced in the morning. The brilliant organisation and food means as a parent you actually have time off instead of being a tour operator/entertainer/ chef on your precious time off. The only drawback is that I will struggle to match this holiday!
A perfect week
What an amazing week...Xania,Craig and Simone were the perfect hosts. From the exceptional vegetarian food prepared by Xania...the mid afternoon cake surprise each day was sublime through to activities each day.. cycling,cliff jumping , daily yoga ,climbing , kayaking , paddle boarding , slack lining , snorkelling..to name but a few . The beaches only a few minutes walk away were beautiful...to see our three children lose themselves in the week was a joy to see. Thank you...we'll be back....
Amazing, super active and engaged family holiday with the right mix of downtime. The best we have had in a long time!
It was all amazing! Superb snorkelling, crystal clear waters. Terrific food prepared by Craig and Xania. Daily activities were adjusted to suit ability so all could take part or just relax.
Better every time
Fantastic holiday. Every time I go I'm a bit fitter and stronger! Love the location, food and activities. Lovely hosts. The sea is ideal for snorkelling and the roads are quiet enough for safe cycling.
I am the type of person who never writes reviews but my holiday on Vis with Craig and Xania and my family (boys 9 and 10) was so good that its the least I can do. From the minute you get picked up in the Land Rover until the moment you leave its an adventure, but one where you are really well looked after. Another lovely family staying at the same time were fitter than us and had much older children but Craig made it easy for everyone in the group to have an amazing time with options for each person to push themselves or chill out. Each of us had our own special moment; from diving in the sea after a morning yoga session to flying 8 km downhill past gorgeous views into a picture postcard harbour, and for the boys jumping off huge rocks into the sea in our own deserted cove or swimming inside an old submarine base. After each adventure its back for cake and later the most delicious dinner on the balcony. Honestly the best holiday ever. We all want to go back.
Absolutely perfect week on Vis
Just returned from a fabulous week with Craig and Xania on Vis. Great activities accessible to all levels of general fitness; starting the day with yoga by the sea, then mixtures of kayaking, cycling, snorkelling, paddle-boarding with flexibility built-in for those that want to push themselves further. All the actvities were infused with fun which kept the whole family perfectly entertained for the week, with enough downtime built in to the schedule to enjoy the local beaches.
The hospitallity in the home was great and the food provided wonderfully inventive and plentiful; putting your feet up with a drink on the balcony was the ideal finish the day.
This is the perfect way to explore the island of Vis and both relax and recharge!
Craig and Xania were fantastic hosts - very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. It was great to just follow their recommendations on what to do each day - and Craig gave lots of options. We loved the cycle we did to Komiza which was quite tough uphill but beautiful when we free-wheeled for 8km downhill! The kayaking was also so worthwhile as we went to some beautiful coves where we were the only people.
Each day started with personally tailored Yoga in a beautiful spot by the sea, followed by a swim in the glittering Adriatic before a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, fresh bread and scrumptious homemade spreads. (The food we had was really superb and introduced us to new thinking about our diet).
We had THE best experience with WearActive! Every day the adventure, company, and food was incredible! Craig and Xania are not only kind and super hospitable, but their knowledge of the island and its history/top adventure spots makes the trip even better. You truly will live like a local, and get the best tan of your life in the incredible Croatian sun, kayaking, snorkelling, swimming, rock climbing, cycling, hiking, and even slack-lining. Whether you’re young, old, plant-based or omnivorous, you will feel truly at home living the “relaxingly active” lifestyle, and loving the simple life.
