Lara’s Loaf is a school for artisan and sourdough bakers,  
but with a difference!


Come and learn artisan baking at Lara's Loaf micro-bakery nestled in the peaceful and scenic Lecrin Valley

Our location is ideal for bakers who want to combine baking with visits to some of Spain’s nearby top tourist attractions. Lara's Loaf has been hosting bakers for over five years.

In 2020 we were listed by The Times and Sunday Times as one of the Best 50 Holidays in Spain


Our teaching methods tell you what we are all about:


We teach you how to produce top quality baked products in your own kitchen, using only basic equipment

Our top-quality sourdough bread requires very little effort

No stand mixers!

No heavy kneading or slapping of dough!


Outstanding Quality

Our sourdough bread consists of 100% natural ingredients of the highest quality

No unnessary extra ingredients or baker's yeast. Just organic untreated flour, water and a little salt

It does need plenty of skill though, and arguably quite a lot of love too!

There are no shortcuts to this kind of quality



See these croissants? A very high level of skill is needed for these!

We simplify artisan baking for you, drastically shortening the steep learning curve

We believe this is best achieved by lots of practical one-on-one coaching in very small groups



Techniques, Tips and Tricks

You will create wonderful products from scratch

Discover a real feel for the dough at different fermentation, temperature, and hydration levels, crafting and scoring techniques and the bake

You will also benefit from a myriad useful practical tips and suggestions



 This is above all a tactile learning experience. You will learn how to use all of your five senses!

We believe there is only one way to acquire these skills

By rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands sticky, but with lots of expert guidance!

Above all, we promise you this is going to be a fun experience!



We cater for a wide range of students and abilities:
