Kim Golland & Family
Potters Bar, Herts - UK
18th August 2007

We had not had a family holiday for six years.

Kim’s celebral palsy makes walking difficult for her.

More recently she has lost what sense of balance she ever had!

We had all previously been to Italy, but individually, and were keen to return.

It was Sian, who put us in touch with Enzo and Accessible Italian Holiday back in late 2006.

Enzo was quick to recommend fully adapted accommodation, and to suggest a couple of sightseeing trips we might like.

He also offered to arrange Airport Transfers and as it turned out unlimited local and exclusive use of a social services fully adapted minibus.

We were happy to confirm the booking of our first accessible holiday!

Nine months later we were duly met at Rome Ciampino Airport by Enzo and extremely helpful social services volunteer Giulio to drive the minibus to our chosen resort.

In conversation it became clear that a Manual Wheelchair would be more suitable for Kim than the Walking Frame we had ordered and within twenty-four hours the switch had been made.

Our Hotel LSF1 was perfect.

Our room with en-suite bathroom and shower chair was comfortable, the hotel was easily navigable via lifts and ramps, the grounds well cared for, the food ( national and local ) was excellent and the staff most helpful and polite at all times.

The wheelchair allowed us easy and independent access to the well appointed private beach.

Over drinks we had two programme planning sessions with Enzo incorporating shopping and ‘lazy days’.

As promised, in Rome Accessible Tours, Enzo got us to the front of queues at both the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum.

Giulio did the rest with his memorable pleas of “Attenzione!” to the thronging crowds.

Flexibility again came into play when we expressed a preference for a trip to Naples and Sorrento Tours rather than a boat trip to the Pontine Islands which had been planned.

Enzo had warned us that not all abbeys, castles and other locations were fully accessible but he did his very best to get the minibus and Kim as near as possible to all the wonderful sights which the Lazio and Campania regions have to offer.
