All you have to do is relax and enjoy your painting holiday as everything is planned for you!

 

"Back home, after a fabulous week at Paint Andalucia.
Just want to send huge thanks for your wonderful hospitality. The whole week was so well planned and went a long way in making a solo traveler feel at ease. All the meals were fabulous but especially at Casa Maria…thank you!
I received such a warm welcome from you on arrival and felt so comfortable and at home throughout my stay, honestly I cannot thank you enough!
I  really enjoyed the painting tuition too and after many years of not painting I now feel energised to continue! 
Hope it won’t be long before I return to Paint Andalucia and will without doubt, recommend you to my friends.
Best wishes to you both."

I've taught in Spain before (and elsewhere abroad too) and nothing compares to how Paul and Victoria's host their holidays.Well organised, generous, conciencious, putting the guests first, great inspirational locations to paint, a respected organisation locally, embedded in the local community (both fully fluent in Spanish) which helps as they know all the special hidden spectacular places to go,, great cooks and hosts that share their lovely mountain home... and so much more besides when you choose THE BEST painting holiday in Spain. I'm proud to be one of their selected tutors.
See you all soon.
