View of Las Nuevas and poolLAS NUEVAS

We couldn't think of a better place to host our jazz guitar course than Las Nuevas and when we approached Jane and Mark with our idea, their enthusiasm, energy and commitment confirmed it. Surrounded by terraces overhung with vines, this restored finca is simply beautiful and the views spectacular. There is no better place to experience the breathtaking scenery the Guadalhorce valley and Sierra de las Nievas mountains offer. In short, it soothes the soul. Add to that friendly hosts, great food and beautiful accommodation and it amounts to, what we consider to be, the perfect venue.


Las Nuevas is made up of five connected houses and the accommodation is spread out across the property. The rooms are double or twin bedded for single occupancy, and those that have en-suite facilities will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Free WiFi WiFi Internet access is provided throughout the accommodation, so bring your laptop if you don't want to cut off entirely from the rest of the world.

You will be met at arrivals and transport will be provided to your accommodation at a cost of 10 per person per trip.


We would like to invite you to join us for an aperitif on Sunday evening before dinner. We'll crack open the Cava and you'll have the the opportunity to meet us and each other and relax after your journey in the informal setting of the courtyard.

Each day starts with a breakfast buffet of cereals, yoghurt, eggs, bread or toast and jam, masses of fresh fruit and coffee and tea, eaten in the beautiful courtyard of Las Nuevas with the view of the morning mountains. Refreshments are available during mid morning breaks. There is also an honesty bar for both soft and alcholic drinks, other than those served at dinner. Coffee, tea and milk are provided at all times.
Lunches are all served with bread and a huge green salad consisting of freshly picked organic produce from the garden and tapas of ham and cheese.

Evening meals are served with wine and consist of three courses, starting with cold tapas and salad.

Please advise us if you are vegetarian, have a nut or other allergy or of any other special dietary requirements.

'A lovely relaxing week full of sunshine and laughter. Beautiful,
home-cooked food and beautiful people.


'Amazing week and great company. Great students on the jazz retreat but
also great hosting.


'There are too many things to say in this short space about my whole
experience here at Las Nuevas......I would relish the opportunity
to return to explore more. Thanks to all.


'I have completely loved my short stay here and only wish I had more
time. The accommodation has been very comfortable and the whole 'vibe' of
the experience has truly encouraged me to let my hair down and get into
the music. The food has been wonderful. Please don't change anything!
Perfect really for me.


'For anyone serious about improving their musicianship and jazz guitar playing this course is a must ! It focuses on efficiency of practice and improvement and goes well beyond tying together the essential 'building blocks' needed for improvisation. Being around other terrific, like-minded players (and everyone there), and having the opportunity to exchange ideas in a setting that is superb in terms of food, weather and surrounding scenery, made for an inspirational and truly enjoyable experience. '

'Hard work has never been such a joy! Great company, beautiful food,
passionate conversation, new horizons. Thanks to all - a great team, new
friends, shared vision!
