The day starts with breakfast in a traditional cafe before you head out to the beautiful country home where the course takes place. You’ll enjoy your meal al fresco (weather permitting) with stunning mountain views and plenty of time for sobremesa (the Spanish tradition of sharing good conversation around the table long after the meal has ended). We can’t think of a better way to spend a leisurely day!
