Course Preparations

This is a writing course so your first requirement is something on which to write. We recommend a laptop computer, wi-fi enabled and with Microsoft Word or Scrivener.

In addition, some courses include field trips to inspirational areas so a notepad and pen are probably advisable for these trips.

Taking photographs of points of interest can sometimes support writing so a camera is useful, however, we do not allow filming of the course itself.

The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool set in tranquil gardens so you might want to bring a bathing suit.

There are some wonderful walks in the area both flat and mountainous so a good pair of walking boots would be advisable should you wish to explore.

We also have an arrangement with a local Horseback Trekking Centre for our clients so you might want to bring suitable wear.

In the winter months, visiting the nearby mountain villages is a special treat as often they are within the snow line, so if that is something you fancy, warm clothing would be advisable.

In the spring, summer and autumn, the weather here is still very warm and with the beaches only half an hour away, you might want to consider that when you are packing!
