About Serenity Holidays

Serenity Holidays was set up in the late 1980’s by Stephen and initially offered just flights and holidays to The Gambia in West Africa. The Gambia continued to be the main area of specialism for Serenity until 2003 with the acquisition of Sussex based tour operator, Holiday Places. This then added a range of European destinations to the company, including mainland France and the island of Corsica.

In the autumn of 2007, Serenity Holidays success was recognised by the Travel Trade Gazette being voted Travel Company of the Year for 2007.  A couple of months later we were recognised as the runner up in Sunday Times Travel Magazine “Best Tour Operator” awards.

Serenity Holidays have been arranging holidays to Corsica for 30 years. Our sales team have the personal first-hand knowledge to help you choose the holiday best suited to your needs with our bi-lingual and knowledgeable overseas staff always at hand to help whilst on your holiday.
