Kate and Rosie plan to open the studio at Casa Rosa in late September and look forward to welcoming you. After the long lockdown with all the burdens that have gone with it we want to get away to the welcoming luxury of this gorgeous Spanish retreat. Join us from 26th September – 3rd October, 2021.

Casa Rosa in the Autumn: Wild flower heaven

In late September and early October 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

Artists take over Casa Rosa

26th September – 3rd October, 2021

£975 use of studio, no tutor, full board, with double room and ensuite. If you wish to have a room on your own there is £150 single supplement.

Flights are not included. There will be a taxi service to and from Malaga Airport included in the cost of the holiday if you take the flights we suggest.

An artistic retreat: you will be free to be as creative and innovative as you feel inclined. No interventions other than meals. There will be options offered, but not distractions, and all the creature comforts will continue to appear as regularly as ever.

This week is freestyle and untutored.

If you want space and time to do your own thing, this is the week for you.

On offer is the full range of delightful facilities, delicious, freshly cooked meals, regular drinks and snacks, and all the beauties of Casa Rosa and its surrounding environment. There is a large studio space with easels, drawing boards etc.

If you want time away from your easel there is a tennis court, swimming pool, table tennis and many beautiful walks. Alternatively, put your feet up with a good book and enjoy the gardens, the orchards and the mountains beyond.

If you’re interested in bringing your own group of students to Casa Rosa this is a perfect way to have a trial run.

What to expect at Casa Rosa in the Autumn 2021

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 Autumn will see these bursting with fruit. 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.

Meals will be a communal affair with Rosie, her helpers and the other artists and guests eating together. The produce is sourced locally where possible including the olive oil which comes from the estate.

Wednesday will be a day off for everyone except the cook… Meals will be available.
