Winter Sun Getaway

19/01/2024 – 26th/01/2024 Friday – Friday
Join us in the Algarve, Portugal and enjoy 4 star hotel service, beaches and some winter sunshine, whilst honing your guitar skills.  A week long escape from the British winter with your best friend your guitar! This will be our fourth 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 group and one-to-one tuition during the week from the two tutors. Plus this year additional pop up workshops and skill swapping from some of the attendees. The main focus of the week will be on playing with others, sharing skills, tips and tricks and improving your ability and expanding your repertoire.  There will hopefully 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, marina, countryside, towns and villages 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 or crazy 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 from relative beginners to intermediate and above.
