New Art Retreat in Spain


My next art and walking retreat will be in a beautiful bohemian mountain farmhouse in Las Alpujarras in southern Spain.  One of the most beautiful locations I have ever seen.  The accommodation is in traditional Alpujarran style, with solar-powered hot water, compost loos, with the most amazing views and a wood burning stove for warmth in the evenings if needed.

I am aiming to hold the retreat in November 2018. Exact date to be confirmed.  The weather is often sunny and warm in November, with cooler evenings.   The retreat will be self-catered and there is a fully equipped kitchen.  The nearby town of Orgiva (a short walk away,) is lively and has lots of cafes, bars, shops, health food shop, and a Sufi vegan cafe restaurant called Baraka, which sells the most delicious food.  There is also a weekly outdoor colourful market.  I plan to take guests on a beautiful walk with a professional guide, up in the higher mountains to see ancient trade routes, natural springs, threshing floors, and beautiful nature surrounding.  There will also be a day of yoga and meditation.  The walk will not be too difficult and no climbing involved.

We will be painting together.  All tuition and art materials will be provided by me.  The painting classes will be based on my practice of meditative art in the lovely art studio.  Transport on the walking day will be provided.  Space is limited.  This retreat is for up to six people.

  1. Good luck with putting together this retreat, Alice. It sounds wonderful. I spent a week walking in the Alpujarras almost three years ago, and absolutely love the area.
