January 2020 – Guitar Getaway In The Algarve 

12/01/2020 – 19/01/2020 Sunday – Sunday
Join us in the Algarve, Portugal and enjoy 4 star hotel service, beaches and sun, whilst honing your guitar skills.  A week long escape from the British winter with your best friend! This will be our third annual winter Guitar Getaway. We have once again secured the fantastic 4 star hotel Pestana Dom Joao II, situated right on the beach next door to the charming fishing port of Alvor in the unspoilt part of the Algarve.  Partners are especially welcome here and we are positive they will enjoy all the amenities on offer – Pool, spa, gardens, bar, lounge etc. We have the use of our own private room to teach, practise, play and jam in both day and night. We can also use the beautiful gardens, lounge areas and outside terrace to practice and relax in.  There will be some optional group and one-to-one tuition during the week. The main focus of the week will be on playing with others, sharing skills, tips and tricks and improving your ability and repertoire.  There will also be the opportunity to join the tutors and perform in a local bar and in the hotel lounge as we did to great acclaim in previous years! This event is both a holiday and a guitar retreat in one so there will be lots of time out to simply relax and explore the local beaches, estuary, town etc. We offer optional day trips out to local attractions and an evening out too. It’s also the perfect location if you enjoy a round of golf, the hotel is affiliated to a number of courses with several close by and club hire available from the hotel itself. There will be lots of jamming, song sharing and singing in the evenings. The retreat is open to all skill levels. .
