Painting Holiday in CALPE on the
sunny Costa Blanca Coast
6th to 13th June 2017 

with Barry Herniman

Come and join me on this ALL INCLUSIVE Painting Holiday in the heart of Spain's vibrant Costa Blanca coast. I have teamed up with SAGA once again to give you this really great value holiday.

Calpe, also spelt without the 'e' as Calp, is instantly recognized by the mighty Penon de Ifach, the huge rock which rises 332 meters out of the Mediterranean sea.

Calpe stands on the Costa Blanca between Alicante and Denia, and is an attractive mixture of an older town, and a modern beach resort, about two kilometres apart. Inhabited since ancient times, it has an old fishing harbour and a modern marina. As well as the towering rock of Ifach – a protected nature reserved – there are the ruins of the Moorish Castle of Calpe, the Torreó de la Peça defence tower, and an interesting archaeological museum


We will be staying in the locally rated 4-star Hotel SH Ifach (4Q) which overlooks the towering the Rock of Ifach. Located on level ground about 400 metres from the seafront promenade, it's conveniently tucked between the marina and the town of Calpe ; once an ancient fishing village. The hotel is in the form of a truncated pyramid 15-storeys high, with four lifts serving all floors.


All 193 contemporary bedrooms have a spacious furnished terrace. The satellite television has ten English channels.

Our ALL INCLUSIVE Holiday features:

  • All breakfasts, lunches and dinners
  • Welcome drink, cocktail party and Saga dinner
  • Resident Saga representative
  • Fruit and water in your room on arrival
  • Exclusive Saga lounge
  • Porterage at your hotel
  • Return flights and transfers
  • Free bar open from 1pm to 11pm serving local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks
  • Optional travel insurance and additional cancellation rights, or a reduction if not required
  • Wine and water at lunch and dinner
  • PLUS My Professional Tuition !


  • Benidorm (half day)
  • Moraira and Jávea (full day)

Billy at SAGA has already held off a whole load of rooms for single occupancy ... with NO single supplements !! But as usual we can only hold these over for a finite period before they go on sale to the general public so early booking is essential to ensure that you don’t pay extra for your room.
 We also need to get the booking numbers , 10 people, to guarantee the holiday goes ahead so again, please book early so that the holiday flies !
As with all recent painting holidays with SAGA you will get two separate Invoices, one from SAGA and one from me but they will still only add up to the total price of  £ 899.     Non painters will pay only £ 799

Calpe is best known for its fine sandy beaches and great value fish restaurants. There are two stunning beaches to choose from, one either side of the mighty rock. Both beaches have beautiful long promenades and a great selection of bars and cafes. The fish restaurants are to be found mainly around the marina and the town centre has some excellent local shopping facilities, including a large street market.

The Rock of Ifach, which has been compared to the Rock of Gibraltar, was declared a nature reserve in 1987 and now provides a safe haven for a variety of birds and unusual flora and fauna. For the energetic, there is a fantastic walking route which goes through a tunnel in the rock and takes you right to its very tip!

As usual, there are a couple of  excursions included in the holiday package PLUS an optional 'Artists DAY OUT ' excursion where we could possibly visit Guadalest.
Occupying one of the most stunning positions in Spain, this small village is precariously perched on the pinnacle of a granite mountain, giving fabulous views across the valley carved out by the River from which the village takes its name.
