Five Andalucian Summer Treats

Andalucia is fun all year round but the summer is THE time to go. It’s party month! Every city, town and village has a summer fair ostensibly in the name of the patron saint but actually more in honour of Dionysus!

Drawing Inspiration Andalucia

You arrive at Los Castaños and are comfortably settled in your beautiful room. Open the shutters and let the afternoon sun come in and then you notice the view. How marvellous you think and pause for a while. You turn to explore the room and discover the drawing pad left to inspire you.

Andalucia Spring

Having lived for some informative years in equatorial Africa where there are no seasons, I thrill to the four very different changes in Andalucia. Whilst it is true that spring and autumn are somewhat truncated in recent years, the drama of spring is always a surprise.

Andalucian Rug Making

With autumn just beginning and the possibility of cooler weather on the way, John and I set off to find rugs for the rooms - traditional jarapas made in the Alpujarras since Arab times. Originally made to protect a mattress from the rough old bed base below, their production was dying out as people bought more modern and less wearing bed bases.
