"Welcome to all things creative and a world of colour !"

Painting Holidays

At Cortijo Las Salinas we run regular art and painting retreats. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist Steffi will help you to develop confidence and a personal direction in your artwork as you paint in the warm sunshine surrounded by spectacular scenery, landscapes and sunsets. The areas chosen to paint are always inspiring, very peaceful with fantastic light, with plenty of time to paint in the large, bright, fully equipped studio.

Painting holidays are designed for everyone, mixed ability groups are no problem. If you are an experienced painter you can paint independently if preferred and the format can be flexible to suit individual requirements.  Non painting partners are also welcome where they can sit by the pool or go for a swim, take a walk or just relax with a book.

You will be amazed to see what you can paint and how you heal when you drop expectations and allow the creative process to unfold. Deep down we are all artists who have whatever it takes to express our inner world through art, the only thing holding us back is the limitations we place upon ourselves.


Every year a little magic always happens in my studio !  Many painters and non-painters spend a little time with me sometimes out on location painting the natural landscape with the wonderful light of Southern Andalucia, or participating in workshops in the studio.  This gallery shows that art is for everyone, no matter what your level is.  Beginners and the more advanced can enjoy a collage workshop, painting the abstract, intuitive art with meditation or out on location looking at the landscape, even Joan Mirø has inspired a workshop recently.  The ‘Hamsa’ has been a popular starting point for our workshops this year.

The Venue

Cortijo las Salinas is a very old Spanish villa which has Roman origins and some interesting ancient history.  It has been restored into an 11 bedroom retreat venue with a combination of single and double bedrooms, creating flexible accommodation sleeping up to 22 people and is centred around a traditional courtyard with marble fountain.
