Riverside painting holiday

Sun loungers and infinity pool overlooking the river in the Algarve

This painting holiday provides a stunning location as your gorgeous villa accommodation is located right on the river bend, surrounded by beautiful countryside – giving you endless inspiration for your art work and plenty of nature to explore with Cheryl on her optional guided walks.

Solo travellers will enjoy their own private room for no additional single supplement and you’ll find that each bedroom has a lovely double bed with air-conditioning, outdoor space on the terrace, and access to an infinity pool to sink into in your down time.

The afternoons come with the option to have a guided walk or explore the area further, with Cheryl always there to point you in the right direction. This creative holiday can be as relaxing or energy filled as you choose to make it!
