FIDDLINGSCOOL AT CASA ROTJA, SPAIN
Casa Rotja is a beautiful, authentic 18th-century farmhouse, recently restored, which lies in the Albaida valley surrounded by olive trees and vineyards.
The villa has 9 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a laundry, free Wi-Fi, swimming pool, olive press and barbecue area. At every turn there are shaded patios and rest areas, so there is plenty of space to chat with friends or have a quiet moment by yourself. Lessons are held in the original bodega, amongst the old wine barrels and grape presses.
Spain is a fascinating country, full of contrast and surprises, and this area is off the beaten track. Nearby we have Moorish caves, Roman ruins, the stunning architecture of Valencia, the Mediterranean sea, bustling towns, sleepy villages... By organising a flamenco workshop, padel tournament, paella making or an excursion to a local festival, we will show you the 'real' Spain.
