Our verdict:

If you want to get more from your holiday than a tan, try one of these personal development courses at Cortijo Romero, a charming converted farmhouse in the hills of Andalucia. Themed trips include mindfulness, dance, Pilates and creative writing. There is a modest single supplement, or the option of sharing a room.

Cortijo Romero says

Come to our charming converted farmhouse, in the stunningly beautiful mountains of Las Alpujarras in Andalucia, and you will immediately feel cocooned in a warm and welcoming home rather than a hotel.

We offer year-round holidays which are all about personal development in an unobtrusive yet nurturing environment.

Choose from a diverse range of week-long courses to suit your interests and needs – examples include yoga, tai chi, dance, winter walking, mindfulness and stress reduction, music and singing, Pilates, creative writing, and professional development.

Starting on Saturdays, each day’s schedule includes a number of group activities as well as plenty of free time for you to simply relax around the swimming pool, reflect or explore the local area. A full day’s excursion into the surrounding mountains, visiting ancient, unspoilt villages is also included in the price.

Yoga or tai chi are offered free every day before breakfast. Optional extras include private sessions with our experienced therapists in holistic massage, life coaching and reiki.

With a maximum of 30 guests at any one time, the majority come on their own, with only a handful of couples. The age range is from early 20s to post-retirement – in other words, everyone is welcome.

Guest rooms are simple but comfortable and characterful with twin or single beds – there is a small supplement of £115-£160 for a single room or you can opt to share a twin with someone of the same sex. There’s heating, if it’s needed in the winter months.

Our delicious cuisine is vegetarian, including dairy and eggs, and is mostly prepared using organic and local produce. All meals plus snacks are included in the price (wine is available at an extra cost) and the typical local town of Orgiva is only a 15 minute walk away if you fancy eating out.
