Painting holidays in Spain for 2010

9th December 2009 Print

Specialist operator, Vintage Travel has joined forces with Welsh Artist Jantien Powell to offer – new for 2010 – tutored painting holidays at selected properties with private pool in Andalucia, Spain.

Included is expert tuition every day – with sessions arranged either at the villa taking in the wonderful interior and the scenic grounds or at nearby picturesque painting locations.

As an example of what’s available, there’s a week’s holiday based at El Molino del Pilon – a five bedroom, five bathroom converted mill house (sleeps 10) set within 17 acres of grounds near the historic ‘pueblo blanco’ of Arcos de la Frontera.

The house provides the ideal setting – with grassy open spaces, shady areas of mature woodland, a large natural lake and waterfalls along the former millstream, whilst inside, there’s the original water wheel as well as beamed ceilings,  exposed stonework and lovely furnishings.

In addition, the itinerary includes visits to Arcos de la Frontera, the historic hilltop town of Ronda, Zahara and Setenil – where the houses are built into the cliff.

Starting 23 April, the cost is £875 per person, twin-share inclusive of seven nights’ accommodation, all meals – prepared by Jantien’s chef – professional art tuition and local transport.  Return UK flights extra.
