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 corner of Andalucia. Andalucia has provided inspiration to many great writers and makes an ideal destination to take yourself away and write.
Accommodation, situated on the edge of a beautiful white village, 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
Apartments are fully equipped with a small kitchen area, balcony or outdoor terrace, table, lounge area and wifi. There’s an outdoor salt water pool, sun terrace and spectacular views.
The only distractions are the local donkey braying and the goat bells as the goats trot 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. 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.
Writing Retreats and Holidays
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.
