Spanish Hideaway












I love the rustic simplicity of Mediterranean design - the pared back minimalism. For me it's the relaxed, casual, laid back nature of these places that is the real appeal. Simple, honest design using local materials such as stone and timber. Where living flows easily from inside to out and evenings are spent laughing and chatting under starry nights drinking local wine and feasting on tapas, freshly caught seafood and paella.






Keep you holiday wardrobe simple and casual - light, breathable fabrics to cope with the heat and flat sandals to cope with the cobble stoned streets and rocky terrain. Natural colours in cotton and linen are perfect for blending in  with the locals. Nothing too fancy is required in this part of the world ... it's all about relaxing!
