Reviewed on 16 Jun 2019 by Cheryl HamelPainting 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

Reviewed on 31 Dec 2013 by Patricia DiangoI 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

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