Description of Painting holiday in Andalucia

If you’re looking for inspiration you couldn’t find a better place than Andalucia to enjoy your painting holiday and improve your skills. Our relaxing, inspiring and fun filled painting holidays are designed to help both experienced painters and beginners to release their talent and most of all, enjoy their painting in a variety of locations, including spectacular valleys, mountains, beaches and the famous Andalucian white villages. All this plus comfortable hotel accommodation, wonderful local food and wine, and marvellous value for money. We also very much welcome solo travellers and charge no single supplement.

Andalucia is a wonderful place for a painting holiday, enjoying year round sunshine and superb light. There is magnificent coastal scenery and beaches, white villages and from March to May, beautiful flower meadows. Between painting, enjoy traditional Andalucian food and wine and spend time with like minded people.

This painting holiday is based in the white Andalucian village of Torrox. The aim is for guests to immerse themselves in the process of drawing and painting and discover beautiful Andalucian landscapes, as well as having fun and making new friends.

Our holidays are about discovering the hidden Spain, its flora, fauna, architecture and culture. You can enjoy a day in a traditional Spanish, mountainside garden with an al fresco lunch, explore the beautiful city of Málaga, visit pretty beaches, wild open countryside, mountain vistas and stunning scenery. This holiday was voted one of the top five art holidays by The Telegraph newspaper.

We provide easels, drawing boards, sun parasols, water containers and lightweight folding chairs. We ask you to bring paints and brushes. A materials list will be sent to you.

Courtesy airport transfer leaves Málaga airport, on arrival day, at 12.00, and leaves Torrox on departure day at 09.00. Flights must arrive before 12.00 noon on arrival day and after 12.00 noon on departure day.

Painting each day at beautiful and varied sites around Torrox Pueblo was memorable. This challenged our outlook and extended the scope of our creativity. This was the opportunity to benefit from daily demonstrations by our tutor and to meet and paint with other painters. Read full review

I found it very enjoyable and relaxing; the organisers were efficient and friendly and created a welcoming environment. The mix of people on the course contributed to an interesting week as there were some serious painters and others who just wanted to dabble Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


We recognise that the environment, the community and the culture within which we operate and our relationship with local organisations, businesses and individuals is vital to the success of our business. We are very pleased therefore that we have been able to provide economic support for our local community by bringing business to the local economy. we buy locally grown food for our picnic lunches and shop in the community markets and village shops. Our guests dine in various family owned restaurants which is of great benefit to the community especially as we mainly operate out of the tourist season.
We use locally owned accommodation and promote the local heritage, architecture, culture and gastronomy of our region wherever we can. We aim to where possible purchase our equipment locally. We support our local farmers by using local produce in season wherever we can and use local guide services.


We support local income and small business enterprises by supporting locally owned shops and restaurants. We encourage our clients to purchase local, handmade or locally produced crafts. all meals are taken in family owned restaurants in the village. The cleaners and maintenance ladies and gentlemen are all Spanish and live within the village.
We try to minimise the use of transport where possible and refuel in the local petrol stations where possible. Our guests are encouraged to recycle waste and minimise the use of plastic water bottles. we are keen to share the history of our wonderful village and also of the rich and diverse history of Andalucia and Spain.
