The Autumn 2022 Literary Adventure holiday will take place September 3rd-9th with tutor Yvonne Battle-Felton. All Literary Adventure holidays run Saturday to Friday. Programme details here. Do email us with any queries, or if you prefer, you can call us on 0203 751 0757 ext.800 (Mon-Thurs).


TLC’s Literary Adventure at Casa Ana in Andalucia offers the opportunity of a luxury writing holiday in a unique setting at the stunning Casa Ana and is exceptional value, with single occupancy rooms starting at just £875*.  There are 10 rooms available at Casa Ana. TLC has exclusive use of the venue for our Literary Adventure. Please see Accommodation for full room information including a pricing structure and photographs.

The cost covers all tuition and workshops from the UK’s leading literary consultancy, three 3-course evening meals prepared by a chef using local ingredients, all breakfasts and buffet style lunches daily. Mini bus transfers to and from Malaga Airport are also included. Flights are not included, and we will have three evening meals out at local restaurants as a group for which we recommend you budget between 10-20 euro per meal per person. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided by Casa Ana, and we will provide Cava with the meal for the group on the first evening. The bus for the (optional) Wednesday excursion will cost a small extra fee.

We will provide an information pack to all participants including details on travel, transport and accommodation recommendation for those coming from or going on to other places, as well as a list of things to bring and other useful information.

*It is possible for friends or a couple to share at reduced rate. Please see Accommodation for information on which rooms are twin rooms available to sharers. Unfortunately it is not possible to accommodate non-participating guests on the Literary Adventure.


Rooms are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. For further enquiries or to book please email Aki Schilz on . If you prefer to call, please phone 0203 751 0757 ext. 800 (Mon-Thurs).



Flights to and from Malaga are not included in the price but there are several low budget airlines that fly there as well as other airlines. Easyjet, Ryanair and British Airways currently offer early morning flights from Gatwick and Stansted. It is also possible to journey to Casa Ana from Granada, but flights are less frequent and we therefore recommend, if you would like to join our mini bus transfer, travelling to Malaga. Do check platforms like Skyscanner or Kayak for price comparison of flights from a range of destinations.

Getting to Casa Ana

We recommend arrival Saturday, the first day of the Literary Adventure, before 2.30pm to allow you time to join the shared mini-bus from Malaga City Centre. We usually arrange for pick-up between 3 and 3.30pm. You are welcome to drive if preferred, and we ask you to aim to arrive for welcome drinks on the terrace from around 6pm, with the first evening meal served at 7pm. Malaga airport is currently served by a number of airlines including Ryanair, Easyjet, Norwegian Air and British Airways, and flights are now available from London City to Granada. We recommend Skyscanner to find flights and advance booking where possible. To allow for our transfer back on the last day of the holiday, we recommend booking flights that leave at 2pm or later from Malaga. Please allow enough time both when arriving and departing, as we cannot be responsible for anybody who does not ensure their own arrival or departure.

Airport transfers are included: we have a private mini bus which will take you from the airport in Malaga to Casa Ana, and back on the final day. If you are travelling in from elsewhere please let us know in advance. This is particularly important if you are travelling by bus from another part of Spain, as some services run infrequently even in the tourist season and it is not the most reliable mode of transport in this area.

If you wish to stay overnight the evening before travelling on to Casa Ana, we recommend the Hotel Venecia in Malaga for a low-cost option, or the AC Hotel Malaga Palacio for more premium accommodation in the city centre. You may wish to look up local Airbnbs as an alternative to hotels. Do let us know if you plan to stay the night before, and we can put you in touch with any fellow Adventurers arriving the night before.

Private Car Hire

Ferreirola, the village we are staying in, is very small and remote, but car parking is available in the village. If you are making your own way to Casa Ana by hired car then please contact Anne Hunt on 0034 958 766 270 or email for details about how to get there by road.


Please note this is not suitable terrain for those with significant mobility issues: there is a 15-20 minute walk to the restaurants for our two evening meals out across uneven ground and the region is mountainous. The third evening meal out is on the evening of the optional trip to Pampaneira/Capileira. One of the rooms, Room 10, has step-free access and a wide door to its en suite bathroom, and it is possible to stay on site throughout your stay if necessary, though please note this does unfortunately mean missing out on the three group evening meals. If you have specific access requirements please contact us directly and we will put you in touch with the venue.

Terms & Conditions


A £100 per person deposit is required in order to confirm your reservation. Once we have enough writers to travel we will let you know and you can book flights, at which point the full remaining balance is due directly to TLC within no later than 30 days.


In exceptional circumstances you may need to cancel. As it is important for planning to know how many will be in the group, we have to take cancellation seriously. If at any time after booking up to 90 days before travel we will retain 50% of the full fee. If you cancel between 90-60 days of departure we will retain 75% of the full fee; and within 60-30 days of departure we will retain 90% of the fee.

Please note that in order for your flights and any other bookings to be covered by your insurance, your policy must be active from the point of booking, not from the point of arrival.

We do not accept liability for any costs incurred as a result of cancellations, delays or changes caused by war, threat of war, closure of airports, civil strife, industrial action, natural disaster, technical problems with transport, or other events beyond our control, medical conditions which may develop during or subsequent to the holiday; loss of, or damage to person or personal property.
