Croatia has been one of a few destinations my wife and family really wanted to visit but hadn't managed to (Pre-Covid) so when my wife booked for mid August we were all looking forward to our first overseas trip since 2019, but it didn't really make sense..? All we could gather was it was healthy eating, lots of activities and we were staying with the people running the week and with another family we'd never met! We were collected on a glorious morning after 4 nights in Hvar by a warm welcome from Xania in their Discovery from the port. We jumped in after Xania helped put our bags in the back and by the time we arrived still didn't really understand how this would work, but it does! This unorthodox system works and although someone who likes to think of themselves as relatively fit for nearly 50, each morning I awoke as if I'd done preseason training the day before. Craig is Sport Billy, tanned, enthusiastic and easy to talk to, Xania and Craig 'tag-team' the activities, though as Xania prepares the most wonderful healthy meals, Craig tends to lead on the cycling, kayaking, snorkelling, yoga, swimming and paddle-boarding. Oh there's slack-lining too! The island is rustic, full of fig trees and wineries. the water is magnificent and the different beaches all make this quiet island perfect to help getaway from the rat-race. The accommodation is you've your own private rooms and shower/toilet so if you need time to yourself its there, meals times are grand event where we all eat together and it simply works. This couple welcome you into their home with open arms and subtly push you to spend your days possibly doing a lot more than you'd do on a family vacation, but its thoroughly enjoyable, the food is fantastic and the company (the other family that we'd never met before) helped make the whole experience what is was. Would we go back for more cycling in extreme heat, followed by a dip in crystal waters, followed by wonderful food and conversation? Most definitely...

We loved sharing Vis Island with you and your family! Really enjoyed your company, enthusiasm and your initial look of panic every time we suggested a new daily adventure. We hope to share our 'RelaxinglyActive' concept with you another time. Take care and thank you for the kind words, Xania and Craig

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.

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 hospitatlity 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!

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.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay with Craig and Xania. We went with our teenage children and friends with children the same age. It was a great holiday for teenagers and kept them off their phones for a lot of time (which was our intention)! The house is beautiful and all the bedrooms and private bathrooms simple and lovely - it was very clean everywhere. The food was amazing. I am not vegan (or even vegetarian) but loved all the meals. There is plenty of opportunity to eat fish and meat on nights when dinner is not provided at the house. 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. There are some lovely swimming spots / beaches 5 -10 minute walk from the house too. The sea in Vis is crystal clear. We honestly can't fault this holiday - GO! You will love it!

This was a truly active holiday, although if you felt like taking it easy you could wimp out of an activity or do an easier version. Otherwise there is morning yoga on the flat rocks by the sea, kayaking and cycling, and picnics on beaches reached by the kayaks. Craig and Xania are brilliant at running these holidays. There is room for 8 guests ( maybe 10 if the family room is full) and so it's all very intimate and personal. The best part is the food prepared mostly by Xania. It's all vegetarian and if you have dietary requirements ( I am a coeliac and I have to avoid gluten) this is taken seriously but with a light touch. I wasn't glutened all holiday and I could feel confident about that, not to mention how delicious the food was. Honestly the best food I have eaten on any holiday. We were given dinner on 3 nights as well as lunch on 6 days and breakfast every day. To be honest I wish we had been able to eat in every night as that was better food than we had in any restaurant and it was a more sociable experience. A brilliant holiday, whether you go as a couple, or with a friend, a child, or on your own.

Craig and Xania are excellent hosts who have carved out a life of pleasure that they are willing to share with discerning travellers. You'll discover stunning scenery by kayaking along the coast, cycling over the hills or stretching on a cliff for morning yoga. The food is divine (and I'm notoriously fussy). There's enough down time to have afternoons of recluse or evenings exploring the towns. All age groups loved this holiday.

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). The day continued with a choice of activities to make the most of the beautiful Vis Island. Craig and Zania, aided very ably by Maia, gave us a wonderful time in an apparently effortless and relaxed way. Their attention to detail and empathy made our experience very enjoyable and restful. We kayaked to The Green Cave 'out of hours' so we had the place to ourselves and could experience the tranquility, with only the lapping of water and swallows hunting for insects in the semi-dark interior, for company. There were many highlights of the trip but the most memorable is seeing three Dolphins swimming and breaching through the water from our Kayaks one morning.

Really lovely to share Vis Island with you and have the chance to spend time with both of you. We must be honest and say that the highlight of any kayak trip for us is also to see Dolphins swimming and breaching through the water. Hope you have many future adventures, kind regards, Xania and Craig

On the ferry on our way home from Craig and Xania's beautiful home on Vis Island the decision was unanimous: this was the best family holiday we have ever had. The amazing plant-based food, the thoughtfully tailored activities, the beautiful and homely accommodation, and the stunning island of Vis made this a truly wonderful holiday. But for me, the best thing about this holiday was that, in the words of Craig and Xania, it was "relaxingly active". We had plenty of amazing activities to get stuck into, but didn't have to think about anything - Craig and Xania had it all covered. The activities: Having stuck to self-catering / self-organised holidays in the past, we decided this year (now that our boys are 10 and 7 years old) to take a chance and try something new with an activity based holiday. There are certainly no regrets with that decision. Our whole family loved all the activities throughout the week - even the yoga was a hit despite the early start. We got to explore so many amazing parts of the island by kayak, paddleboard and bike, and Craig and Xania thoughtfully adapted the activities to suit the needs/age/fitness of our family. The food: Only one of us is vegetarian (and occasionally vegan), and at first we weren't sure how the kids would react. But they absolutely loved the plant-based food, and so did we. Xania’s cooking is exceptionally good, and I think accessible for all. The accommodation: beautiful. The rooms were plenty big enough for the four of us (we had adjoining rooms with a shared entrance), with some private space just outside the room with a view of the sea. The shared space and dining area was wonderfully relaxing and we were made to feel at home for our whole stay. The island: stunning. The house is situated in a very pretty village with some nice restaurants, and on the nights we were eating out Craig and Xania kindly recommended, booked and even drove us to restaurants in the main town of Vis which was a beautiful old port town. Verdict: we will certainly be coming back. Thank you to Craig, Xania and Zora who made our stay with them so special.

Went with my two tween/teen children. We are generally an active sporty family and my kids are pretty hard core. Family clubs at resorts just don't do it for them so this was perfect. Lots physical activity around gorgeous hard to reach spots on the island led by such a knowledgeable guide; lovely set up for meals with really delicious vegetarian food. Accommodation is very nice. Very good value for money considering food, activities and accommodation all built in. Waking up to yoga and a dip was a beautiful experience. Vis is stunning. just a really lovely different experience for a family trip.
