A Flavour of Spain are British husband and wife team Mike and Hilary Powell who have been running creative holidays, courses and workshops at El Molino del Conde every spring and autumn since May 2005 - bringing internationally renowned artists and writers to teach in these inspiring surroundings. They have now hosted more than 30 successful courses.
Mike and Hilary ran their own restaurants in Portugal and Spain for 13 years and are passionate about Spanish food and culture. They are wonderful hosts (and great cooks!) and create the perfect comfortable, open, relaxing environment for learning ... and having a great holiday too.
A Flavour of Spain welcome non-painting partners and offer a Spanish Experience: light hearted Spanish Conversation with a tutor for beginners or those wishing to brush up their linguistic skills, a couple of hands-on Cooking sessions in the kitchen, two cooking demos, an olive oil tasting and a sherry tasting as well as participation in the excursions.
Excursions to accompany the 2014/15 workshops included visits to Cordoba, including the Equestrian Show; to Granada, including the Alhambra Palace; to a Flamenco show, Priego de Cordoba, Iznajar and to the Annual Country Feria in Villanueva de Tapia.
