Creative Writing Holidays in Spain 2019

WHERE: Finca Buenvino, north of Seville. Sam & Jeannie Chesterton’s family home, the perfect place to escape, relax and re-discover your creativity. With 150 acres of sweet chestnut and oak woods, streams, gardens, natural rivers, springs and salt-water , heated infinity pool you will always be able to find a quiet space for contemplation. Bohemian, eclectic, super comfortable, stuffed with antiques, art, family heirlooms and tons of books, it will enchant you and inspire you to write down your life and return home with your self-esteem boosted, your brain expanded and new friendships celebrated. With a welcome recommended by Alastair Sawday’s  Special Places to Stay, fabulous Andalucian farmhouse cooking using organic, homegrown and seasonal produce recommended by Masterchef winner  Thomasina Miers founder of Wahaca and Darina Allen from world famous Ballymoe Cookery School in Ireland. The Chestertons make their own Pata Negra ham, chorizo and lomo from the family-reared Iberican black pigs and Jeannie makes jams, marmalades, muesli and fresh bread every day. I guarantee this is will be the most delicious, fun and therapeutic holiday of  your life.
