This year the Spanish ukulele retreat will be Saturday May 30th – Saturday June 6. We’re so excited to go back again as last year was a roaring success. Everyone progressed in their uke playing massively, had heaps of fun and made some great friends.
The event is held at a lovely villa in the foothills of the Los Filabres mountains North East of Almeria. The villa has a heated swimming pool and is set in a beautiful garden. Accommodation is based on sharing though last year there was enough space for most people to have their own room. Food is also included and is totally amazing!! Manna our amazing chef provides beautiful three course meals twice a day and there is a morning buffet breakfast every day too.
We have lessons with Matt in the morning and afternoon and optional communal singing lessons which are huge fun. Just ask last year’s attendees! 🙂 And every evening we have a slow jam where we play through what we’ve learned as well as some fun other stuff. It’s really informal and you can come and go and enjoy these as much as you like. Matt is on hand all week to help you individually with your playing. All levels are catered for – no one gets left behind.
Mid-week we have a break day and have an excursion out. Last year we drove to a beautiful little village to look at their traditional pottery and then down to the Mediterranean for lunch at a restaurant on the beach. We even had a swim and lots of relaxing. And once during the week we walk down to the nearby village for dinner at the local restaurant which is really lovely. These are the only two meals not included in the ticket price so you can order whatever you fancy.
The cost is £750 per person for all your tuition, accommodation and meals. Flights and transfers are not included but are very reasonable. I will help co-ordinate everyone travelling. Last year we all travelled together and split the cost. We hired a mini-bus to the airport and a large hire car the other side. If you are travelling from elsewhere in the country we can meet at the airport or in Spain.
