Ideal art venue for the discerning traveller
Las Orquideas, the hillside villa which overlooks the town of Benigànim and the Valle D'Albaida in Valencia, Spain. The home of Loli and Harold and the venue for Dalvaro art painting holidays.
Situated approximately mid-way between the popular airports of Valencia to the east and Alicante to the west, the villa was purchased in 2007 specifically as an art school and a painting holiday venue. It has been well restored, to the highest standard and now consists of the main four bedroomed villa, with two twin and two double en-suite bedrooms on the first floor. A newly built annex with ground floor rooms, one double and two twin en-suite bedrooms, plus a further twin and double en-suite bedroomed extension, each room has its own separate air conditioning unit.
Located in the breathtakingly beautiful Spanish Valencian countryside Dalvaro Art offers creative painting holidays in tranquil and inspirational surroundings for all lovers of art and Spanish rural life.
Our painting courses, art workshops and non-painting holidays include a wide range of inclusive itineraries which include all meals with drinks, professional art tuition, trips out, all materials and of course accommodation.
Las Orquideas, the home of Dalvaro Art, is a beautifully renovated villa with a large, purpose built, fully equipped, air conditioned studio, positioned on a hilltop overlooking the town of Benigánim in the heart of the rural Valencian countryside.
The uninterrupted views across the rooftops, the vineyards and olive groves, across the valley to the mountain of Benicadell and the Sierra Mariola, provide an unbeatable backdrop to the landscaped gardens and a perfect painting holiday experience for all art lovers.
The beautifully landscaped gardens have been explicitly designed with you, the artist, in mind. The additional terracing of the flower and shrub beds and borders give an enormous variety of artistic views. With numerous shaded sitting areas, to fully appreciate the panorama of the valley and with the inclusion of many smaller areas you will also be able to focus on the smaller scenes and shadows. The clever planting and maintenance of the trees and shrubs will encourage you to look at the closeness of the subject and the distant mountains. A place where every day you will find a new vista or quiet corner to sketch or paint trouble-free and enjoyable through purposely maintained spaces between the planting schemes, either as part of the group or in solitude.
The art venue is well positioned at the eastern end of the fascinating agricultural Valle D’Albaida, making the inclusion of numerous locations for the artist interested in the painting of landscape, townscape, cityscape or seascape trouble-free and enjoyable.
