Ryanair will start charging passengers for bringing small ‘wheelie’ suitcases onto its planes from November.

Like many airlines, Ryanair allows customers to bring hand baggage weighing 10kg or less on board for free, but the airline said that overhead locker space had failed to match demand.

From November, passengers will either have to purchase Ryanair ‘speedy boarding’ or pay £8 to check a small bag in.

Meanwhile, the airline reached a deal with pilots to end a strike over holiday entitlement and working conditions after a marathon 22-hour negotiating session.

Two weeks today, the guests on our Winter group holiday to Austria will be on the slopes, walking in the snow, relaxing tired muscles in the nude spa and enjoying the atmosphere of naked après-ski at our exclusive half-board hotel.

And it’s not too late to be among them…

In addition to a choice of skiing and walking in either Schladming or Ramsau/Dachstein with a dedicated shuttle bus to ferry you around, we’ll be enjoying a horse sleigh ride, night tobogganing, and evening entertainment including wine tasting and a very Austrian night out in a local restaurant with music!

As with all our group holidays, perhaps the best bit is the company of like-minded, Naturist people…

We’re looking forward to the weekend when the first Chalfont Holidays British Naturism members’ holiday departs to the fantastic Gran Hotel Natura in the north of the Canary Island Fuerteventura.

Approximately 30 guests will enjoy a packed activity programme in the company of like-minded people, relaxing around the pool, dining, enjoying evening entertainment and soaking up the sun. Off site, we’re planning a beach day on the Corralejo dunes, a coach trip to the lagoons of El Cotillo on the Western coast of the island, including a stop at the village of Lajares, a (naked) boat trip to the island of Los Lobos and buggy rides. There will be walks, jogging and aquarobics too.

There are plenty of other group holidays to come this year – all with activity programmes and great company. See you there?

Landhaus Luhrmann is an all year round escape to mountains, fresh air, spectacular scenery and a Naturist spa – and also the destination for the BN group holiday ski trip – places still available!

It’s a traditional Austrian guest house located between Ramsau and Schladming in Austria. Cable cars and lifts ascend both sides of the valley and so there is plenty of choice with all the colours of the ski runs and plenty of lovely walks.

Luhrmann is a friendly family-run guest house with mountain views all round. The Winter Garden conservatory at one end of the dining room opens out on to a terrace where guests are free to be nude in the summer (or in the winter on a good day!). There is a vast lawn area that descends to a pond at the bottom.

The always Naturist spa has a swimming pool, two saunas, a steam room, and a relaxation area. Massage is also available. Dinner is an evening set three-course meal of freshly home cooked traditional Austrian fare.

Nearby Ramsau am Dachstein is a village with supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and a cable car to the glacier where there is a suspension bridge with incredible views.  Schladming is a charming town, vibrant because of the tourism and with a busy nightlife, but also wonderfully peaceful parts with old Austrian buildings.

Horse and sleigh rides are available and night tobogganing is also close by.


During the group holiday in March 2018, nudity is allowed in all of Landhaus Luhrmann. What a perfect way to après-ski!
