I spent two weeks at the school studying Spanish, Flamenco guitar and compas, all at a beginners level. The courses were well taught and very professional, the staff friendly and helpful. The school itself is beautiful, built around a gypsy cave complex on the edge of Sacromonte Hill and very close to the centre of the Albaicín, with some of the best views to be had of Granada and the Alhambra just outside the classrooms. The office staff were very helpful and great guides to the practical and cultural life of the area, the school also organises cultural events and excursions which are not to be missed.
The accommodation was well maintained and a perfect base for exploring the Albaicín, we stayed in a shared apartment with other students which was great for integrating into the community around the school, a couple on our course had a private apartment in a cave above the school which had amazing views and a charm they fell in love with.
The school has many long term students studying at an advanced level who mixed freely and shared their knowledge with the beginners, creating a sense of community which perhaps is the most special thing about the school. No holiday is perfect but if you love Spanish culture, Andalucia, Flamenco and want to deepen your knowledge, this is as close to perfection as you can get.
