Welcome home

You’ll instantly feel at home on a Small & Friendly holiday, so get ready to sit back, relax and immerse yourself in culture and community.

Traditional architecture and local flavour will enrich your holiday and make it the little bit of paradise you’ve been looking for. Each resort is located away from main roads and resort centres to give it that low-key atmosphere.

Small & Friendly resorts are adults-only havens – while TUI can’t guarantee every hotel will be child-free you can rest assured tranquility and calm is the focus here. Although the locations are rural, they’re close to secluded beaches and bays. Can you think of anything dreamier than a beach all to yourself?

Homeliness is emphasised in Small & Friendly hotels. The biggest you’ll find here has only 130 rooms so you get that intimate, family-like feeling around you even when you’re miles from home. A selection of holidays in this range come with car hire too so you will have the freedom you’re used to but, instead of the commute to work, you’ll be travelling the roads less travelled in stunning Sardinia or beautiful Madeira.

Small in size, big in life

Walking trails and scenic paths entwine every Small & Friendly destination so bring your comfy shoes and explore the forgotten corners of the world. Golf enthusiasts will be happy too – world-class standard courses are situated in some of the most beautiful surroundings.

There’s plenty to explore outside of the tourist capitals, and with Small & Friendly you can see what the world has to offer. Destinations like Greece, Portugal and Croatia are full of history, culture and interesting nooks to explore. Once you’ve strolled along the stunning streets of Santorini, or kayaked around the bays of Montenegro you won’t want to holiday any other way. Take a boat trip to watch wild dolphins in their natural habitat, experience the fun of bartering at the local markets, or hire a bike and trek down the winding trails that cover these rural destinations.
