More about us

Ruth has been living in Andalucia for the past 7 years and is passionate about the outdoors and nature. She enjoys a range of sports including kitesurfing, mountain biking, climbing and hiking. Being Irish, she loves the almost constant blue skies in Southern Spain and although she misses the craic at home, she reckons that she couldn’t live anywhere else now. 

Silvia von Wedel is an English artist and sculptor. She studied Art at St Martins College in London. Previously, Silvia taught English at her local language school. She specialises in working with adults and children and improving their level of spoken English. She is passionate about art and creativity. Silvia considers a creative hands-on approach to learning English, a successful method of engaging students and developing their communicative skills. Silvia is an ardent believer in bilingual speaking, as she herself is a bilingual speaker and her 2 children are both trilingual!


We require a deposit for all courses to reserve your place. The remaining amount can be paid on the day or in advance into the same account as the deposit or in cash. Most of our courses have very limited spaces and have a waiting list. Therefore, if you do not wish to take up your place, please let us know in advance. Full deposit will be returned if cancellation is 1 month before the course.

Early Booking

Early booking is required due to our small numbers and our tailor-made bespoke packages. 

Similarly, we ask for a deposit to ensure that all participants arrive and don’t take up space for those who are on the waiting lists.


All of our courses based at our Finca in Pizarra have a midday meal included. This meal is home cooked and uses the freshest ingredients available, alongside our own in season fruit and vegetables. Our yoga courses select the freshest ingredients from the local permaculture farm. Please let us know about any special dietary requirements and allergies when you are booking a course
