Easter at Casa Mosaica

We had the most wonderful stay at the Casa Mosaica at Easter time. The house is beautiful, full of wonderful things, and beautifully decorated. Obviously mosaics are everywhere. Although evening temperatures were chilly at that time of year, the house is very cosy with wood burning stoves and fires. Semana Santa is a fantastic time to visit Spain, and the people of Gaucin enjoy it all, from running the bulls, to the nightly religious processions. Emma Cornish is a fabulous hostess, with a wealth of local knowledge, and is fluent in Spanish, which can be a great help. She is very helpful in giving advice on eating out, cultural visits, local walks, and trips to Morocco. The pool is great, though only warm enough for children at Easter, the garden is lovely, and Gaucin fascinating. Highly recommended.

Holding Faberge - A week in Spain

Spain is a country of the mind. It conjures up images of pure energy and perhaps joy. The bullfight releases an intensity in the audience of awe and fear, of a deliberate attempt by the Matador to cheat death. The colours of the Tapas on a heated summer evening reflect the sky. The red and yellow of herbed pork with collapsing sliced peppers turns to cooler blue in fish as the air drops. The relief of a late meal without the sun.

On the coast, sat under white parasols the sea reaches the beaches in brilliant white waves, glinting like over-exposed photographs being taken again and again. Large gulls fly low across the bays, exploiting the warm air from the water, not moving their wings but still achieving speed. On the shopping strips the famous and those who enjoy appearing with them dip in and out of names from London, New York and Paris, before chasing the gulls into the mountains in Ferraris.
