Your Host

Tina’s Spanish background, language, culinary skills and local knowledge offer you the opportunity to engage with the local culture in a very personal hands-on way. Tina’s experience in hospitality ensures a convivial, well run and welcoming experience, whether travelling with a friend or coming by yourself. She will be the host and guide for the week’s itinerary, which includes activities and excursions to broaden your interest in all things Spanish, taking in local craft, music and dance, food, wine and history.

Tina is a trained chef and three cookery sessions are included in the week, accessible to those with or without some knowledge – where both newbies and experts can leave having learnt to make some delicious Spanish dishes.

Soak up the pleasure of being hosted in a small group in the beautiful house and country estate.
