Learn a new skill on a Prestige Holiday

30th March 2010 Print

Prestige Holidays is featuring a range of educational breaks for summer offering holidaymakers the chance to learn or improve their skills in cookery, painting and tennis.

Book a break with the operator at Relais & Chateaux property, Reads Hotel in Mallorca, incorporating a day working alongside Head Chef Felix Eschrich and his team in the kitchen of Bacchus, the hotel's Michelin star restaurant. At 4pm enjoy a break and a full body massage in the hotel’s Vespasian Spa before returning for a light supper and evening service. Each trainee master chef will be given a score out of 100 and the one with the highest score for the year will be invited back for a complimentary two night stay with dinner.

Prestige Holidays is offering the Master Chef Experience package from £1636 per person including: return flights, transfers, seven nights B&B accommodation and the day with the Master Chef including: a Reads embroidered chef's jacket, lunch, a light supper and massage. The price is based on a September departure and includes one free night saving £375. The Master Chef Experience is available year round.

The operator has also packaged Painting Workshops on the stunning island of Gozo. Often described as “the island where time stands still”, Gozo with its centuries old buildings, rich history, rural villges and beautiful scenery provides the ideal backdrop for a creative break. The workshops, which are lead by Chrissie Scott an English artist residing on the island, are designed to inspire budding artists through hands on painting excursions taking in some of the island's gorgeous scenery. No experience is necessary and accommodation is in the five-star luxury Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz

The week long workshops take place on selected dates throughout the summer. A seven night package in September costs from £1045 per person comprising: accommodation at the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz in a double room on bed & breakfast, return flights from Gatwick to Malta with Easyjet, private transfers, the return ferry to Gozo and the services of Prestige’s local representative. It also includes five painting excursions with lunch, painting materials, transport to paining locations, art instruction and a group dinner with the artist on the final night.

In Cyprus, Prestige is delighted to offer a range of tennis holidays at the Aphrodite Hills Tennis Academy. Located at the heart of Aphrodite Hills Resort, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea, the Academy features 11 floodlit tennis courts and a range of tennis packages.

These include five day courses featuring 5 X 2 hours of Mental Match Play (MMP), a comprehensive mental and physical training method developed by the Europen Tennis Academy using specially created music aimed at creating awareness of the body, tennis ball and racket in order to sharpen and improve tennis skills. A similar package is available for kids. The Tennis Academy works alongside The Retreat Spa to offer a comprehensive fitness and wellness experience.?
