Artisan bread baking course

Guests kneading dough to make sourdough loaves

You may find a few local bread making courses but nothing quite like this 3 day course at a family owned bakery in the white washed village of Salares, tucked in the hills of Andalucia.

Become one of the family and stay in your private ensuite room in the casa, just above the micro-bakery, where you will spend your days baking until you have it perfected. This comprehensive bread making course will teach you everything you need to know while giving you the chance to unwind or explore the Andalucian countryside in your free time on holiday.

You’ll also have the chance to master the process of laminating dough with butter to create delicious specialities like croissants, pain aux raisins and pain au chocolat.

If you do hire a car for your stay, you’ll find the Sierra Nevada mountain range and Costa Tropical beaches are within a 30 minute drive, as well as picturesque mountain villages like Capileira, Pampaneira and Trevelez. This is the perfect area to combine a gorgeous holiday with mastering a new hobby and life-long skill.
