“I really enjoyed all the wonderful painting locations we visited and i really loved being part of a fun group of like minded people. Staying at Hotel la Casa was worth the upgrade. It’s a beautiful little hotel. Sincere thanks to our hosts Paul and Victoria for the delicious dinners!”

“I loved my holiday- it was so much more than i had expected.Paul and Vicki were exemplary hosts who catered for our every need.An excellent mix of locations and the tutor, Klaus Hinkel, was very inspiring.The Spanish banquet at Paul and Vicki’s home,Casa Maria was fantastic. Paul and Vicki looked after us all and we were made to feel like friends. The wine was fab too!!I would come on a Paint Andalucia holiday again……it really exceeded all my expectations. It was my first time away alone and i was nervous but didn’t need to be at all.”

” Hello Everyone
It will be a long time before I forget your company and the great times we had last week. Thanks to Vicki and Paul for their beautiful houses and hospitality, Andy for chauffering us to and from the airport and up and down the hills, and for an amazing itinerary and tuition.
Even more that that, I would like to thank all my fellow guests for their good company, laughs and enthusiasm for photography and painting,
I shall be coming back to Torrox and all it holds for as long as my back and knees allow me to
My very best regards,

“The holiday with Dawn Oliver as guest artist far exceeded my expectations.I was looking for an art holiday but with a very Spanish feel to it and that is exactly what i got! Loved Torrox village! I arrived needing help with the most basic of skills. Dawn has been nurturing, open, interesting and fun. I have renewed my love of painting and we learnt some fabulous techniques that i can apply to future work. Thank you all for a fab holiday!”Adele. June 2019.
” It is hard to choose one out of so many enjoyable aspects f this wonderful holiday! The warm welcome and thoughtfulness from Victoria and Paul, the meeting of old and new friends, the fun and camaraderie within the group…no wonder this is our third visit from Australia! Paul and Victoria’s hospitality is superb. Their knowledge of the local Spanish history and culture is so interesting and informative. Our tutor was extremely knowledgeable and imaginative.
Consideration was given to each member of the group. I particularly liked how they help the local restaurants and small businesses. Their love of Spain is so obvious and they were so happy to share it with the group.”

I have had lots of fabulous adventure holidays in the past but this has been the best holiday ever!’
“The holiday was a lovely experience all round, and it has certainly helped me to overcome my fear of the white page. When you are seated in front of a view, you have no choice but to paint. Furthermore, it was nice painting outside, rather than confined to a studio. Some potential painters will fear this. I feared it. But a large dose of daily “en plein air” painting has cured me. The tutor’s job is not easy – they have to deal with a range of abilities and attitudes. Some welcome support like me, and others just want the occasional pointer. All in all, for me, the holiday absolutely delivered what I wanted to achieve painting wise. But the holiday was so much more than a painting break. Torrox Pueblo, the days out, and the food, all helped to make a nice holiday into a great one. I enjoyed the “ Spanishness” of our stay, and your emphasis on Spanish food via the restaurants and your lovely cooking. It was such a treat and we were very lucky to be part of a very friendly and funny group of ladies – we hit the jackpot there!
I had a really good time, and would definitely recommend you to a friend and consider returning again. You are a lovely couple, work well together, and are clearly committed to giving your customers a holiday to remember.
Thank you again for such a special time.

Thank you for a lovely holiday. I will recommend it to my friends as a well run, enjoyable experience.”
