This is a creative retreat hosted in an inspiring setting: a former antiques store nestled at the base of a mountain in Soria, Spain.  The sleeping quarters are adjacent to Marquin’s Spanish art studio that overlooks Monte Valonsadero situated on a six acre property.  The grounds offer little gardens featuring roses, different types of indigenous trees, and a rolling lawn that is sure to spark creative intrigue.


We will spend our days taking walks around the countryside, painting and creating at leisure, visiting wonder-filled landmarks, and enjoying long Spanish lunches (these will last about three hours!) Lunches will be served ‘family style’ with lots of different dishes, breads, wines, and delicious desserts.  Our town is known for its obsession with food and you will dine very well during your time here! 


Nightly dinners will be served at the house (the Spanish do not eat until at least 10:00pm and that is too late for American travelers!!) Because lunch will be so robust, dinners will be plentiful, but not large feasts like lunch. 

All food, lodging, transportation to and from Madrid and during your stay in Soria is included in the pricing.  Please come with an open mind ready to receive much inspiration from Spain.   You will leave this retreat filled with creativity! 

You do not have to be an artist to come: during 'creative' time you can enjoy walking around the property, reading a good book, or any other small pleasure.  This is purely a time to unplug, experience a new culture, and be exposed to the creative side of Spain.
