Vila Gale Ampalius Hotel
Number of stars

Vilamoura, Portugal WAS £743 NOW £669

This lovely 4 star hotel is located just a stones throw from the Beach, Casino and Marina of Vilamoura and a short distance from several golf courses. This hotel is in the perfect location and has everything you need to enjoy all the Algarve's entertainment or to simply relax and fully enjoy your holiday. The flat resort of Vilamoura and the ramped beach access, make it a perfect location to enjoy an accessible holiday in the sun.

Number of stars

Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote WAS £323 NOW £291

A lovely 4 star complex with a total of 70 comfortable bungalows. Set in 12,000 square metres of beautifully landscaped gardens shaded by palm trees, it is a relaxing and peaceful holiday environment. Good adapted bungalows make this complex ideal for the less mobile.

Hyde Park Lane Bungalows
Number of stars

Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote WAS £273 NOW £246

Friendly, peaceful resort set in quiet gardens just minutes from the beach. These traditional whitewashed bungalows and apartments have been placed cleverly throughout the shady well kept gardens to provide a sense of private space, but still with access to excellent resort facilities, such as 2 pools, both edged with sun terraces and restaurant, offering a perfect balanced holiday. The resort is flat and being only 500m away from the beach, shops and restaurants, makes this ideal for the less mobile traveller.

Top Destinations


The most easterly of the Canary islands, Lanzarote lies just 100 miles off the coast of Africa in the Tropic of Cancer. With an average temperature of 22 degrees, this makes it an excellent holiday destination all year round.

In 1987 the World Tourism Organisation declared Lanzarote one of the six universal models of sustainable development. And in 1993 UNESCO declared the island a Reserve of the Biosphere. The island is justifiably proud of these awards and jealously protects its natural, cultural and artistic heritage, although an economy based on fishing and agriculture has long ago given way to the mainstay of tourism.



A smaller, quieter and more relaxing island than its neighbouring Balearic Islands, Majorca and Ibiza, this island has more beaches than its livelier counterparts put together! 


On Portugal’s southern coast, the Algarve offers everything from sandy beaches and lively bars, to cobbled streets, gypsy markets and seafood restaurants.

The coastline is glorious with its standout beaches. Hidden coves and crescent shaped bays with many child safe Blue Flag credentials make this area perfect for holidaymakers.

Knowledgeable, impartial advice

From city breaks to ski trips, we tailor all our package holidays and ‘disabled friendly’ cruises to your needs. Once you’ve chosen your destination, we’ll help you select the most appropriate accommodation or accessible property. Our team doesn’t earn commission and isn’t incentivised to favour hotels, properties or destinations either. That means you can always trust us to provide knowledgeable, impartial advice.

Fully-inclusive prices

The land-based holiday prices on our website include accommodation with the appropriate meal plan, accessible airport transfers and (where relevant) a local representative. We’ve deliberately excluded airfares so you can choose your preferred departure date, airline, airport and holiday duration. Once we’ve secured your flights, we’ll give you a fully-inclusive price from home to destination and home again.

With your trip booked, our legendary service continues as we help with airline or cruise pre-notification, parking, holiday insurance and other aspects of administration and post-holiday follow-up.
