Writing Holidays and Retreats
Set in the heart of the Andalucian mountain range and surrounded by three natural parks – Grazalema, Sierra de Las Nieves and Alcornocales – it’s hard not to be inspired by the location.
Our Writing Rincón
Rincón is the Spanish word for a ‘corner’ or a ‘remote place’ and, once you are here, you will see why we love this particular corner of Andalucia.
Accommodation is provided in collaboration with our partner Sierra Alta Apartments. This small family-run business has just six apartments providing a sense of space and tranquillity.
Each apartment has a balcony or a terrace; perfect for watching the sunset over the mountains with a glass of wine after a day’s writing. When you need to stretch, there’s a salt-water pool with breath-taking views and loungers.
For those looking for a cosy winter stay, the apartments have heating plus an inviting wood burner or open fire in the lounge area for the cool mountain evenings
At Sierra Alta Apartments, you are never far from the local amenities and the excellent restaurants whilst also enjoying the energy and tranquillity of the mountains. The apartments are situated on the edge of a beautiful white village.
Fully equipped with a small kitchen area, your apartment gives you the freedom to eat on your balcony or the outdoor terrace. There’s a lounge area with a dining table which you can write from and wifi. The outdoor salt water pool, sun terrace and spectacular views add to the experience.
Feel at home in nature as you tune into the sounds of the local donkey braying and the bells of the goats trotting past on their way home.
If, at any time, you are in need of a distraction, the bustling town of Ubrique is a 10-minute drive away. Home to some of Spain’s best leather factories and workshops, you´ll find top quality leather goods at great prices. Jerez de la Frontera is approximately an hour by car and Seville is about 90 minutes away. There are also opportunities to hike, bird watch, sky dive, cycle, abseil and rock climb with local guides and companies.

Whether you choose to come on a guided retreat with classes and optional coaching or, an independent get-away-to-write short stay, our writing breaks aim to provide a balanced and enjoyable experience that is both productive and relaxing.
We look forward to seeing you!
