We are an English family of four, our youngest daughter is on the autistic spectrum, we have been living in our lovely 18th century masia since 2002 and have tailored much of our environment to suit our daughter with autism. The idea of offering this type of holiday came to us because we found it so hard to enjoy a family holiday ourselves. The logistics of transporting special foods/bread machine etc. to comply with Sophie’s gluten free-lactose free diet were exhausting enough and then at our holiday destination to be met with non-understanding hosts made the whole exercise a painful experience (we felt we needed a holiday when we got home!).
