We are opening the studio at Casa Rosa in late April for an exciting fortnight of art courses. Spring at Casa Rosa is particularly lovely and we look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful, ruggedly rural corner of Andalucia.
In late April and early May join us for art and culture in the Axarquía, the mountainous area to the north east of Malaga. The hills and orchards of Andalucía will be ripe with citrus fruit and wild flowers. Nestling into the landscape, Casa Rosa will have olives, garden flowers and fruit growing in the orchards and around the houses.
“Andalucia is one of the most beautiful corners of Europe, where the excesses of modern life do not seem to have taken root and travellers are welcomed as honoured guests. Beloved by Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway, it is the Spain of Carmen, Figaro and Flamenco. Rich with the legacies of the Moors and Romans its charm and serenity will captivate you.” Sunday Times

Enjoy the the friendly, supportive, house party atmosphere of art retreats at Casa Rosa. Whether you come on your own, with friends, family, or partners, you will be part of a group. If you want to spend some quiet time on your own there are walks through the countryside or up to Periana. The rooms are quiet and extremely comfortable. We endeavour to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as we can.
Food, fresh from the orchards and markets
Casa Rosa sits in the middle of its own orchards and the Spring will see these bursting with fruit blossom. The house and cottages are full of delightful surprises, pictures, pottery and antiques collected locally and from years of travel.
Have a look at the facilities of Casa Rosa Estate – tennis court, pool, ping pong table – freely available and the nearby village only a walk away.
