FINCA el CERRILLO
We have just spent a delightful week’s holiday at Finca el Cerrillo, a 200 year-old farm house situated in the foot hills of the Sierra Almijara region of southern Spain
The finca is owned by Gordon and Sue, who have spent 8 years restoring it and making it into a work of art in its own right
Gordon in another life was a theatrical set designer, and every step and turn was a well planned and beautiful experience
We were invited to join a group of 24 artists and partners who were all members of a local painting group, non-painters like me were kept busy lazing round the pool or going on walks in the beautiful mountains. The Oleanders were in full bloom
We had a visit to Malaga where we visited the Picasso Museum and the Castillo De Gibralfaro, a beautiful fortress perched high above the port with fantastic views all round.
We also went up into the mountains to feast on paella.
And to the market in Frigiliana
I hope you have enjoyed our little visit to Spain on a holiday which was a little off the tourist track! Certainly Peter has a lot of beautiful paintings and when we go next year I will join the Art class!
