A trip to another country is not just a physical journey, it is also largely an inner journey. Not only will you experience new places, smells and people, you will also experience yourself in a new way, because everything is new and you will meet new challenges.
For example, you can't expect to manage in English in all places, you will have to deal with the daily chores in a foreign language or perhaps resort to "charade your way" if you do not master the language. . . which can be quite entertaining.

SPREAD YOUR WINGS
and find your destination in Europe
ARRANGE A COURSE IN EUROPA
Keep your course topic and clientele in mind as you browse the houses in France, Greece, Italy, Croatia, Spain, Czech Republic and Germany.
Pay attention to whether the beds in a double room are single beds or double beds. A shared double room is okay for most students, but a shared double bed is not okay for everyone. In other words: customize your choice of house and sleeping accommodations with the student group you have in mind. (And make sure you get a bedroom for yourself. It's YOU who run the show, so you need to be able to retire to privacy).
As a help to your planning for and pricing of your course or workshop, you can see the cost per person for the cheapest house and the most expensive house at each destination.
Of course, you have to do the calculation for your special house yourself, that is - when you find it.
PLAN A FAMILY VACATION IN EUROPE
Have your special event or holiday in mind as you look through the houses. Is there a playground or gameroom for the children? Is there a private pool or walking distance to the beach? How many bedrooms are there? How far is it to the nearest village or town? Are there interesting places to visit for the whole family .... etc.
BIG EVENT HOUSES | HOLIDAY HOMES IN FRANCE
Population: 66.42 million
High season in France is July and August as well as Christmas, New Year and Easter, where you can expect long queues at most major attractions.
April, June and September offer lower prices, flowers and lots of fresh vegetables. In September, the wine harvest is a good reason to visit France.
The off-season, from October to March brings lower prices everywhere, but many attractions and eateries located in the countryside may be closed or open only a few days a week.
What makes France stand out from the crowd? Art, fashion, gourmet food, wine, perfume and sensuality!
Now that I think about it, it's all the good things in life that speak to our senses. No wonder we are some with a passion for France!

Who doesn't love tzatziki, feta cheese or ouzo, the anise-based brandy that is Greece's national drink?

BIG EVENT HOUSES | HOLIDAY HOMES IN SPAIN
Population: 46.45 million
A visit to Spain can be beach life, life in the countryside or holidays close to Barcelona with all the cultural and wildly exciting offers that the big city has to offer.
One thing worth remembering is that Spain is much, much more than sun, sand and cheap booze!
Here you can still be stopped in traffic by a flock of goats crossing the road with their shepherd, or you can meet wild boar up in the mountains.
And if you rent a property out in the countryside or in the mountains, don't be surprised if a plastic bag filled with lemons or avocados all of a sudden is hanging on the garden gate; it is just a friendly gesture from a neighbor or farmer who has picked more than necessary.
Spain is perfect for both course and family vacation! I know, I've been living here since 2001!
