Below is a selection of testimonials from previous single parent activity holidays in Ramsau, Austria:
"Single Parents on Holiday is an incredible experience for meeting wonderful children and adults, and holidaying in a way that feels safe and supported. From being met at the airport with transport to trips while you're there, it's the perfect way to take a break with your children as a single parent. Every person on our holiday wanted to do another one - that's the best recommendation you can get. "

"As a dad taking away my little boy of 4 for the first time, and being an active family I was a little nervous of trying to do this all on my own for what was a very big adventure for us both. The choice of holiday in Austria was ideal, activity based and we managed to participate fully in everything that went off. This was simply down to how at ease all the parents and kids where together and this of course had the benefit of allowing me to set aside the concerns I had, and a shared understanding and willingness to just enjoy ourselves. And that we did. It was one of the best holidays I've ever had and I cannot thank SPOH enough, and all the new friends Rufy and I now have. We cannot wait for next year! "
- Michael & Rufus (4) - single parent activity holiday in Ramsau, August 2023
"A truly wonderful way to go on holiday as a single parent. The children were mixed age which made it feel rather like a large family. My 13 year old for example took charge of the four year old and they developed a very sweet connection. This then gave the parents some much needed space and opportunity to chat and connect with other adults. It was so harmonious…it felt like we’d all known each other forever."

"Amazing setting, the activities are so fun filled. Enjoyed Toboggan, cable cars. My 11 year old enjoyed the Zorb. The grounds are lovely at Simonbauer."

"Myself, Alfie (9) and Oscar (5) had a blast in Ramsau. The team were extremely helpful pre holiday letting me know which activities Oscar would be able to do and which he wouldn't; being on a group holiday meant that Alfie didn't need to miss out and could join the others if I couldn't do it. It was a great mix of making new friends, getting out and about in the day doing activities and then having fun back at the hotel playing football, tennis, ping pin and snooker - this was just as important to the boys. For me, it was nice to be able to relax and chat with others knowing the kids were safe and happy. Thoroughly enjoyable week and I would definitely use SPOH again. "

"Ramsau, Austria is not just for winter! It's a great place in summer and a beautiful place to explore the natural beauty and scope of its surroundings. The age range and size of the group does not matter, as most if not all of the activities suit families of all ages. We did lots of firsts on this holiday and created many happy memories."
- Chris, Mia (15) & Jacques (14) - single parent activity holiday in Ramsau, July 2016
"We had a great time, nice vacation if you like outdoor activities. I think great vacation for kids over 10-12 years, not for small children."
- Ludovico & Margherita (10), single parent activity holiday in Ramsau, July 2016
"We had an excellent holiday, Daniella was a fabulous guide and offered great activities which we could all enjoy irrespective of age. The hotel was lovely, swimming lake, sauna & steam room all appreciated after busy days."

"Another great SPoH holiday with great people! Daniella worked exceptionally hard to organize everything for us and flexibly worked around wet weather constraints too. The Dachstein area is very pretty with wonderful scenery. The family run Hotel a peaceful place to stay with good food which was enjoyable after building up appetites following our walks and various outings. A good head for heights needed for some activities! Would highly recommend this holiday for teens. My son loved the rafting, paragliding and the glacier visit. We had a fantastic time and have returned home refreshed and ready to think about our next trip away with SPoH!"

"We had a great holiday in Ramsau. There were lots of fun activities to do together – rafting, tandem flying, walking etc. We had some rain while we were there and Daniella, our group leader, juggled everything very efficiently so that we hardly noticed. Being in a group and having a helpful leader enabled us to do things that we wouldn’t have been able to do if I had taken the children on holiday on my own."

"This was by far the best holiday we’ve been on for a long time. From the moment we arrived, our host Daniela made us feel very welcome and had a really exciting programme of activity planned for our week. I really liked the fact that nothing was set in stone and that the group had the final say on what they wanted to do which took account of everyone’s needs and expectations. We had a fun packed week and got to do things that we would never have done on our own. Ramsau beach and the surrounding area was a perfect location for paragliding, mountain carting, hiking and just generally chilling in the mountains. It was perfect as the kids had a great time and equally so did the adults! A group holiday like this takes the stress out of going it alone. I would recommend SPOH to single parent families for this reason alone. A big thank you to Daniella and Sandra for all their efforts to make it the best holiday ever…..watch the video."

"Single Parents on Holiday lay on some great holidays and this one was no exception. The kids got to do some amazing things – including paragliding down a mountain – and I got to hang out with some fascinating and fun adults. We had a ball! Special thank you to Daniela for always going the extra mile for us, can’t wait to do it all again some time soon!"

"From the moment we arrived at the airport it felt like our holiday had begun. We met up with one of the other families travelling whist boarding the plane and the holiday just got better and better. My children made friends instantly and the relaxed nature of the hotel meant they were free to play and enjoy them self. Daniela, our host, arranging all the trips to work with the weather and considered the abilities of the group. We have a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute, one week disappeared far too quickly and if felt like we had barely touched all we could do in the Austrian mountains."
- Neil, Thomas (10) & Olivia (8) (Ramsau holiday, July 2013)
"Another superb SPOH experience – very happy & contented children & mummy! The Dachstein region is truly stunning and offers a wealth of possible adventures and experiences. We met some super people, in Daniela we couldn’t have asked for a more efficient or delightful hostess. A really special and relaxing holiday."
- Jenny, Emily (11) & Ben (9) (Ramsau holiday, July 2013)
"This was one of the best holidays we have ever experience. The office staff in the UK were very efficient. Daniela, our rep, was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. Her enthusiasm and professionalism shone through and was infectious! Our only problem was the holiday went too quickly and we had to come home!"
