Join David at a stunning luxury retreat standing amidst a site of 33 acres of fruitful Spanish gardens, with views of the surrounding Sierra Cabrera Mountain Range and the Mediterranean Sea.

During your week at Utopian Retreats, the emphasis will be on three key elements: the place, the practicalities and the person. David’s aim will be to encourage you to develop your own individual response to the landscape, whilst providing useful, technical guidance in the medium of your choice. In this way, your work will not only be a memorable record of your week with us, but also do what the very best art always does: reach out and make a profound connection with others.

There will be plenty of time to relax, either on your private terrace or in the extensive and verdant gardens. Accomodation and food are first class. Fresh fruit and vegetables for all of your expertly cooked meals come from the Retreat’s own orchard and garden. If you require a little time away from the easel, the stunning, salt water pool is a joy to swim in and any extras such as an excursion to the nearby beach and pueblo can be easily arranged.

The retreat is easy to get to with regular flights from the U.K. to Murcia, Almeria or Alicante.

“What an amazing place it is!  It was wonderful to have the luxury of one -to-one sessions with you as well as the tutorials in that charming arbour overlooking that stunning view. We thought Matt, Iva and their staff looked after us beautifully and I thought the food they served was perfect for the climate . I would certainly love to come again.” A.P. Bath
