Casa Mosaica Gaucin
Dear friends of Casa Mosaica,

I do hope you are all keeping well in these difficult times. I’m writing to you from beautifully sunny Somerset, where we have been since returning from Gaucín on the 1st of July. It’s the land of apples and green, green grass. We live next to the Mongomery dairy where they make some of the best Cheddar in England, which we love and the weather is so good (16/09) that I can’t really complain, except we do miss Casa Mosaica, Gaucín, our friends, and particularly Kevin & Geoffrey. I gather from friends who stayed throughout the summer that it has been a very hot one and that they are all longing for a bit of rain now.

Be assured we are following all the government guidelines regarding post Covid cleanliness and Casa Mosaica will be deep cleaned before and after guests have visited.

Casa Mosaica Gaucin I do hope you are all keeping safe and well at this extraordinary time.

Several guests have kindly asked about the situation in Spain, so I thought I would include a little about the lockdown in - Gaucín, in this, my Spring Newsletter. I am in touch with guests who have booked holidays this year but please don’t - hesitate to contact me directly any time if you have any enquiries about your bookings.

View of the village of Gaucin Very Happy New Year to you all and best wishes for a peaceful 2020. Since my last Newsletter in August, we have enjoyed some lovely local Andalusian events and looking forward to more in the new year ahead.

View of Jebel Musa in the Riff mountains of Morocco This is the fabulous view of Jebel Musa, part of the Rif Mountain chain on the Moroccan side of the Strait of Gibraltar….generally identified as the southern Pillar of Hercules (Gibraltar being the northern Pillar), that we saw returning from a fascinating visit to Baelo Claudia (considered to be the most complete Roman town ruins uncovered in Spain) at the end of July this year.

Casa Mosaica pool and view
After much re-decorating during February and March this year, I can finally show you the results of the new colours I’ve used around the swimming pool courtyard...a much stronger “Moroccan Red” for the walls, new teak sun beds for the pool terraces and chairs for the gardens, a fresh lavender border and new planting in the pots on the terrace. It was nerve racking choosing a strong paint colour for such a large area, especially when you are not on the spot when the painting begins. Thank goodness for the brilliant Sibari, my local painter who did a great job and I think this colour sets off the Olympian Spiral mosaic in a good way. I hope you like it?
