La Finca del Nino; Sally and Dennis Pead who own this fabulous venue in Andalucia have rightfully earned the love and respect of every one of my hundreds of students who have stayed at La Finca since 1996. Great location, great food, and a lot of love goes into the success of this venue. I prefer to accommodate my painting groups in this wonderful and magical hacienda.
