Inspiring holidays to refresh
the body and restore the mind.

Handcrafted holidays built to your specifications

Rather than providing a ready-made ‘package’, we find out exactly what you want and then create a holiday to suit you. You provide the inspiration, we combine that with our know-how and come up with an individual, personalised holiday just for you. Our founder, Zekiye Yucel, is a trained architect, and it is her vision and attention to detail which has shaped our philosophy.

It’s all in the detail

Our founder and Managing Director, Zekiye Yucel, still visits each and every hotel personally to make sure that they meet her exacting standards. If she isn’t happy, then we don’t feature the hotel – it’s as simple as that. We work mainly with authentic and boutique hotels, which are often owner-managed, as we find this ensures the best service and gives you a real feel for the destination. We pay attention to the details so that you can simply relax and enjoy your holiday.

What sets us apart?
"It may seem strange for a trained architect to be running a holiday company but actually the two things aren’t so different; both require vision, inspiration and attention to detail."
