Finca el Cerrillo makes an ideal base for a small painting group (8 - 26) to enjoy a memorable painting holiday: It offers hotel style accommodation with a house-party atmosphere.
We offer tutors and group leaders a lot of support in organising transport, meals out; excursions etc. so that you are free to concentrate on delivering your course content. We have many groups who return year after year.
Group leaders who bring 10/12 or more paying participants enjoy a free place - please ask for more details.
The Finca has 14 spacious rooms that can all be used for double, twin or single occupancy. (In the winter months, it may be possible to offer a date with no single supplement).
The Studio is light and airy with air-conditioning to ensure a comfortable temperature year-round. It leads onto a courtyard patio which can be used as extra studio space for those who want to paint outdoors. There are also mature gardens surrounding the Finca and lots of shady terrace areas where you can sit to paint.
We have portable easels, stools and drawing boards for participants to use. Materials can be supplied at cost but please discuss requirements in advance.
Painting in different locations away from the Finca can also be arranged. There is a local beauty spot nearby with rock pools and shady trees. In good weather, it makes a good place to set up for a morning's painting or drawing - we deliver a picnic lunch to the site. The only extra cost for this is a few euros per person for the transport. The local 'white' villages also make picturesque bases for working away from the Finca and again, we can organise taxi transport for those who want to do this. Depending on numbers, cost is about 5-10€ per head.
Meals are served outdoors whenever possible. Breakfast is served buffet style and lunch is usually a light salad buffet or home-made soup & sandwiches. Five lunches are included in our catered package so that you have some flexibility to have a day out.
Dinner is served on four or five evenings at the Finca, prepared by our own chef using fresh, local produce. On other evenings we arrange for your group to have dinner at a good quality restaurant in one of our local villages. Transport to and from the restaurant is included - some groups like to take advantage of this transport to do some pre-dinner sketching in the villages. We can cater for most dietary requirements with a little notice. Our food is highly acclaimed! See Food & Drink page.
There are a number of excursions that we can help you arrange. The Alhambra Palace in Granada, Picasso museum in Malaga and the sea-side town of Nerja all make excellent days out. Cost depends on the numbers who want to go e.g. Private minibus transport to Nerja for 10 people costs about 25€ per head.
The Alhambra Palace in Granada (2 hours journey) costs about 50€ per person for 10 people. NB. Alhambra tickets must be booked 3 months ahead.
Airport transfers are included in our Group rates (this assumes the Group will arrive together to take advantage of a mini-bus transfer). Taxis can be arranged for those who arrive at different times to the main group but the cost of this will be at the client's own expense - €70 per taxi each way.
Our most popular package is a fully catered package that includes airport transfers and use of the Studio. We give you a price for each person and you are then free to add your own fee to the price the student pays. If you would like a different arrangement, please ask Alison or Sue for a quote.
Group leaders who bring a minimum 10/12 (12 in peak months) paying participants enjoy a free place - please ask for more details.
It can be difficult knowing how to manage a Group Booking - at what point should your students book flights? What about deposits? Below we give our suggestion for a practical way to organise your Holiday.
