The ultimate Mother’s Day gift: a weekend away with you

For Mother’s Day this year, treat your mum to some quality time away together on a short break holiday. And if your first questions are, “Where will we go?” and “What will we do?”, we have an answer.

Consider a learning holiday in a beautiful location that wraps travel and fun activities neatly into one package. You’ll get a balance of alone time and quality time together, plus the chance to try something new and take home great mother-daughter or mother-son memories.

Below are our top 3 recommendations for the two of you:

Pizza and pasta making in Tuscany

Pizza & Pasta Making Break

With three nights in a private ensuite room, all meals included, and excursions to a winery and two nearby villages, this cooking short break packs in everything Italian. Spend time making pizza and rolling pasta from scratch with your mum in a family-run cookery school, and then (even better) eating your results.

Developing your relationship in Ibiza

Mother Daughter retreat

Try a 3-night wellness break for two, with breakfasts & dinners included alongside a stay in a traditional Spanish finca. Tucked away in the serenity of the northern part of the island, the two of you can enjoy private movement sessions, healthy meals, nature walks, and therapeutic massages… plus get some sun!

Riding along the beaches of Portugal

Horse Riding Short Break

Even if neither of you have ridden a horse, a riding short break is the perfect introduction. The rides are for all levels, and you get paired with a gentle (and cute!) equestrian friend for the weekend. You’ll stay in a charming Portuguese village with lively local culture, so you can explore any time you’re not riding.


Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to getaway and to give your mum something she’ll really love.
