THE COURSE VENUE
The main venue for our courses sits right on the edge of the village of Moclín with stunning views over the landscape towards Alcala la Real.
The property was built in 1954 as a barracks for the Guardia Civil and in 2009 it was transformed into a rural lodging, event venue and small museum. The museum provides a fascinating overview of the rich history of the area, dating back to Neolithic times. There is a 40 sq meter Roman Mosaic floor, many artefacts from Iberian-Roman culture and examples of Nasrid ceramics.
For our courses, we have exclusive use of the venue. On the first floor, there are 5 large twin bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom/shower room. On the second floor there are 5 large suites: twin bedrooms each with a mezzanine floor with 2 or 3 further single beds, and ensuite bathrooms. The accommodation is fully centrally heated for the winter months.
A lift provides access to all floors and there is a fully accessible bedroom on the first floor for wheelchair users.
Guests have use of a cosy sitting room, complete with wood burning stove for the cooler months. There is a fully-equipped catering kitchen and two large studio/workshop areas. Most of our courses will hold classes in these studios.
