Wild rosemary & oranges

by Mary-Anne Bartlett on January 5, 2018

Join artist Shelly Perkins for springtime painting outdoors in the wild Alpujarra region of Andalusia, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  

This is a lively creative getaway in pure mountain air, with the option to hike with Shelly back along marked trails from nearby painting locations, while your art kit is transported for you. We love this location, it is a peaceful haven for nature lovers which feels wonderfully untamed.  Sketch and paint to birdsong, the air is heavy with the scent of wild herbs.

We spend a day in bustling Granada, painting views of the Alhambra Palace complex and exploring the Moorish quarter with our sketchbooks.  Shelly will tutor with demonstrations and some one-to-one tuition time

Our simple and stylish accommodation is in a small white-washed village, with an emphasis on good food – most of the ingredients are grown in our hosts organic Finca. With sweeping views to the distant Mediterranean Sea, we hope you will be treated to some spectacular sunsets and dazzling starry nights. 

We are based in the mountains and a reasonable level of fitness is required.  

Tour cost: from £1456 per person sharing excl. flights

Single room supplement: £330

Call 01394 382235 to book your place.

The joining point for this tour is Malaga Airport for our group minibus transfer to Mairena.

If you prefer to fly to a different airport we can arrange individual transfers (not included).
