The company offers painting holidays for small groups (maximum 10 people) of all standards and experience. Based in the typical white Andalucian hillside village of Torrox, some 50 km east of Malaga, Torrox Pueblo is a typical Andalucian hillside village but situated only 4.5 kilometres from the beach. Its charm lies in its narrow streets, its white village houses adorned with bright geraniums and bougainvillea, and its endless sunshine.

Our objective is to improve your technique, regardless of your starting point. Our resident professional artist, Anna Martin, will provide you with expert advice and commentary on your work, and introduce you to new techniques to enhance your skills.

Our guests stay in traditional village houses, which have been both sympathetically restored and furnished with all modern conveniences. All the houses are situated a short walk to the lovely village square with a variety of restaurants and bars. The townspeople boast that they enjoy "El mejor clima de Europa" - the best climate in Europe, and they are right!

We are anxious that you relax and enjoy your evenings, and we promise good local food and wine at friendly restaurants that look forward to welcoming our customers.

Our holidays are about discovering the hidden Spain, including the scenery, flora and fauna, architecture and culture.
