Below a selection of testimonials from our previous single parent ski holidays with kids in the February half term in Kitzbühel (2019/2020) and Mayrhofen (2018), as well as some of our single parent ski trips to Fügen (2013-2017).
"Great to meet likeminded parents and children in a fun, action-packed holiday. Made a few good friends on another good holiday with SPOH, thank you Sandra."
- Gemma & Theo (9) - single parent ski holiday with kids in Reith/Kitzbühel, February half term 2020
"Thank you Sandra and Ian for a really fabulous holiday. It was lovely to be so well looked after for our week and to have someone to guide us all over the ski area. You made sure everyone could ski with others of similar ability/ages of children and there were plenty of activities for anyone with enough energy left at the end of the day!"
- Lynn & Joshua (13) - single parent ski holiday with kids in Reith/Kitzbühel, February half term 2020
"I have been on 3 holidays with SPOH. I am a mother of a child with complex special needs and very specific dietary requirements. I look forward to going on trips with the company as nothing is too much trouble and they go over and above what you would expect whatever you need and this means that as a parent I can feel relaxed and comfortable that I will always have a great trip with my son. I can't imagine booking my ski trips with anyone else."

"Yet another great holiday, fantastically well organised by Sandra - once more we had a fabulous time. "
- Richard & Henry (15) - single parent ski holiday with kids in Reith/Kitzbühel, February half term 2019
"I have booked the skiing holiday to Reith for my daughter and I. The main reason was to ensure other kids will be around for my daughter to play with after skiing and other adults to discuss with for my sanity. We had a fantastic time both on the slopes and in the evening. It was great for my daughter and I to go skiing with other parents & kids of the same level and to be able to retreat to the bar in the evening knowing my daughter was laughing with the other kids. Sandra's organisation was faultless and effortless for us to follow (I am sure it wasn't effortless for her). We enjoyed it so much that we are going to the next trip at Easter."

"Another brilliant holiday with SPOH. Every year my daughter grows to love these holidays more, and in turn I get a well needed break. The children were all brilliant with each other, especially the older ones being inclusive towards to younger ones; there was a wonderful feeling of 'team' amongst the adults. A skiing holiday isn't always the most relaxing of breaks, especially as a solo parent, but I can-not think of a better way to ski with my daughter. We will be back for another adventure soon."

"The SPOH skiing holidays are always such fun with the right mix of organisation and free time, they just make the holiday go without a hitch."
- Ruth & Sophie-Rose (15) - single parent ski holiday with kids in Mayrhofen, February half term 2018
"It couldn't be any better! The kids and I had an absolutely brilliant time. Great company, lovely organisation, very smooth and warm and everything is made so easy by Sandra. The best holiday we've had, thank you."

"We went to Austria with Single Parents on Holiday for the first time this half term and I would really recommend it. Sandra was fantastic at helping me choose the right holiday for us and was very honest and open about the different types of people who would be there. I chose this one as I wanted a mix of mums and dads as this was important for my children, who lost their dad 2 years ago. At first it was a little hard trying to get to know everyone, as there were a number who had been on holiday together before, but as the week went on, we started to get to know everyone more. Sandra and Tennessee were very good at mixing with everyone and ensuring that no one was left out. I personally really enjoyed meeting a variety of different people, different ages and backgrounds and the dinners in the evening were really fun. They organised a great tobogganing evening, which the kids loved. The hotel was excellent and very Austrian which was lovely. The staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The pool and sauna facilities were very good. We really enjoyed being in the beautiful town of Mayrhofen and it was lovely walking through the town after a day's skiing. The skiing itself was excellent with lots of great runs and we were fortunate to have lots of snow. We have made some really good friends and had lots of fun. We will definitely book again. Thank you for a great holiday! "

"Another year and another winning holiday with SPOH. Great hotel and skiing week with old friends and new and as always my personal and kids favourite week of the year. Many thanks to Sandra and Tennessee for an outstanding week and looking after us as such great hosts."
- Mark, Francesca (15) and Dominic (12) - single parent ski holiday with kids in Mayrhofen, February half term 2018
"The Alpendorf holiday was pure fun from start to finish. The kids were constantly hanging out with their new friends, the adults were always laughing (on the slopes and in the bar) and Sandra and Tennessee ensured that we were all brilliantly looked after. It felt like a real break - which doesn't happen very often! What a wonderful week we had. It's so special as a single parent to feel looked after and the kids just love being part of a tribe. It really was the best holiday we've ever had! Thank you x "
- Annelies, Alexandra (10) & Lucas (8) - February half term ski holiday with kids in Alpendorf, 2017
"Alpendorf proved to be the best week skiing ever!!
Both my children Harry 16 and Sophie-Rose 14 are already asking me to book again for next year. The venue was perfect, beautiful views, fantastic slopes. The hotel felt luxurious and friendly. Sandra's organisation was seamless so that I could really relax and Tennessee's sense of fun and superb skiing ability made the holiday really enjoyable. The other parents and children on the holiday were so friendly, welcoming and fun that it made the whole holiday an overwhelming success. Thank you."

"This was our third SPOH holiday. The hotel was really lovely with a short walk to the gondola which is essential with children on a ski holiday. The rooms were very comfortable and quite spacious with amazing views over the valley. The ski equipment was all ready and organised for us to pick up on the first morning. The group of parents and children were all very friendly and everyone had a fantastic holiday. Despite having a back problem early in the holiday that then prevented me from skiing, my daughter had a great time with the help of her new extended family. This would never have happened if we hadn't gone with SPOH. Thanks to Sandra, Tennessee and all guests for making it another fantastic holiday. Hope to see you all again soon."
- Colleen and Daisy (9) - February half term ski holiday with kids in Alpendorf, 2017
"Fantastic people, host (thank you, Daniela), great salad bar, good wines and excellent accommodation. Snow a little slushy towards the end of the week but the people made the holiday.
Another great thing about SPOH holidays, was having childcare support every night to enable parents to relax and share a grown up dinner together. This is the first holiday I have felt Theo and I acted more like a 'normal' family, and less like a strange couple. We both had real fun with our peers which helped make the holiday. Thank you!"
- Gemma & Theo (5) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2016
"Annie’s 1st ski holiday (and our 1st with SPOH) was out of this world! Any reservations I had about taking my 4 year old were gone within the 1st 24 hours. Nothing was too much trouble, the holiday was everything I hoped it would be. Delicious food, great company, fun skiing, life-long memories! Roll on 2016"
- Lindsay & Annie (4) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015
"Thank you SPOH for another good holiday. Sandra, Daniela and Jacob are naturally wonderful hosts that make sure everybody is happy. I cannot praise them high enough. The skiing wasn’t what was expected for Easter, only because of the unusual weather for this time of year, it snowed a lot, but we did end up with glorious sunshine at the end of the week. Everything is so well organised that the only hassle you get is trying to wake up the kids!"
- Kowkchee & Neve (16) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015
"Fantastic holiday. Sandra, Danielle and Jacob were great hosts. Can’t wait to go again next year. Ella has been promoting you guys to all her friends who are in single parent families."
- Beany & Ella (10) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015
"We had the most amazing experience in Zillertal, and as first-time skiiers we were well looked after. The hotel and staff were definitely 4-star (at least)! Would recommend to everyone."
- Louise & Oliver (6) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2016
"This was the first time I’d been away on an organised trip with my 6 year-old. We had a fantastic time and I can now see the advantages of someone else doing all the organising! It was a great mix of skiing during the day but enough time to relax and enjoy the facilities in the afternoons and evenings. Sandra and Daniela were fabulous hosts and couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the trip. Miriam looked after the little ones in the evenings and she was a very caring and patient childminder. Everyone was really friendly and we felt at home in the group straight away. Would I do another holiday? Can’t wait!"
- Maria & Nelisha - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2013
"A massive thank you to Sandra and Daniela for another enjoyable ski holiday with SPOH. An overall great value for money holiday that was stress free! We shall see you again soon."
- Kowkchee & Neve (14) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2013
"A big thank you to Sandra and Daniela for organising such an excellent holiday and making sure everything went smoothly. We all had a fantastic week, both on and off the slopes and the girls now want to go skiing every year. Hope to see you again soon!"
