The idea of the Gilli’s Holidays web site all started way back in 2005, when, with a ‘life time’ of experience in the Travel business, always in Italy, it seemed the right time to select the Italian holidays myself and offer them on this web site. And since I am based on Lake Garda what better place to start with than ‘my lake’, which due to the popularity of this destination over the last years seems to have become ‘your lake’ too!
September 2006 Gilli’s Holidays went live and with it the challenge of finding hotels that not only cater for coeliacs but make you feel special rather than the odd one out needing a gluten free diet. As time progresses there is more coeliac awareness which makes for more hotels available so holidaying in Italy being able to enjoy pizza and pasta – strictly gluten free of course – is a reality. I hope that on Gilli’s Holidays you will find hotels and apartments suitable for your needs. The hotels that have chosen to join me in this initiative have all had coeliac guests in the past and have assured me that they will do everything possible to make your holiday an enjoyable one. Only a few of the hotels featured work with major UK tour operators as I have tried, where possible, to find smaller family run hotels able to give good value for money and from time to time special offers.
Flight costs are not included in the hotel price but careful consideration has been given to the position of the resorts in relation to airports used by low cost airlines from the UK. In an ever changing market there are many low cost flights per day into Italy as well as a host of flight seats only to be bought on existing charter flights. At the time of booking if requested I can help to find the best and most advantageous flight price. An indication as to how to arrive at the chosen destination has been included in every hotel description.
All the hotels in the web site have an agreement with Gilli’s Holidays to supply accommodation on request.
