I spent 20+ years owning and managing a 64 place Children’s Day Nursery which I sold in 2016. Since then I have been looking for a new venture that would combine both my love of food, people, travel and my husband Gary’s passion for tennis coaching.
Having researched the market for tennis coaching holidays we found a plethora of companies offering the traditional large hotel, big groups, standard fayre packages.
We wanted to offer something different. Something more personal, adding those little touches that turn your holiday into something memorable and special.
We wanted to make a Serve and Volley Retreat holiday more like going away with a group of like minded friends. Sharing fun and challenges in the love of a mutual sport whilst under the relaxed supervision of a highly experienced coach.
So the house vibe had to be right too. Both our French Chateaux, Mallorcan Finca and Spanish Farmhouse are steeped in local history and were originally built for the intention of farming the surrounding land for grapes, walnuts, cognac production and olives. The houses have been uniquely and sympathetically restored in the last 5 years.
Both Gary and I live to eat so your food experience is crucial to us. We have both travelled extensively and the menus will not only reflect the local cuisine but will also draw on other gastro influences from our foodie travels.
The wine will of course be local and will tap into the abundant indigenous grape varieties produced there.
If you just want to chill that’s cool too. When it’s not about the food and tennis we can offer a range of other activities.
We are happy to offer a bespoke itinerary for private groups of friends taking the whole property.
