Costa del Sol

You will be staying in a wonderful place with dappled shade, tropical plants, vine-covered patios, olive groves, white-washed houses with terra-cotta roof tiles and, of course, acres of blue sky with distant mountains and glimpses of the Mediterranean.

Your home-base lies in the hamlet of Benajarafe Alto, an area called the Axarquia (just east of Malaga), which nestles in the foothills forming a stunning backdrop to the Costa del Sol. You’ll be just a mile from the beach, on 10 acres of Andalusian countryside. Walk for miles through the olive groves, by wild flowers and herbs, along a latticework of ancient paths, troubled only by an offer of wine from a local farmer. Along the coast there are safe, sandy beaches with friendly merenderos selling sizzling sardines. A few minutes drive inland and you will discover little villages of whitewashed houses and harnessed pairs of oxen, tilling the fields.

Program Details

Your art course tutor is an accomplished watercolor artist, based in England, with over 25 years of experience in providing watercolor painting holidays, and courses in England, Spain and France. His programs are intended to teach individuals within small groups to paint in watercolor with confidence, in a free and impressionist style.

During your stay you’ll visit local villages to paint or sketch. In addition, trips could be organized to Granada, Cordoba and Malaga. Back at your home-base, non-painting partners can relax by the swimming pool and on the patios, join the painting group on their excursions, or wander off on their own to play golf, or swim in the sea.

Also, on-site for participants are a well-equipped studio, a potter’s wheel, and computer controlled kiln. The cook lives nearby and delights guests with her variety of Spanish cuisine. All courses are restricted to about ten painters although accompanying non-painters are always welcome.
