If the surroundings are astonishing, the powerful personality of the house awaits indoors.
The floors laid down by the different owners of the mansion from the 18th century up to the begining of the 20th century have been kept. Clay tiles polished by the years, antique coloured floor tiles that brighten up the rooms with their changing patterns, renacentist marble from a Convent in Puerto Real. When it has been necessary to replace any floor tiles, recovered original tiles have been used.
Each detail has been chosen carefully: lamps, furniture, paintings, stuccos, curtains, lime mortars, colours…
An eclectic house. Old and new, polished materials like stainless steel and glass together with rouge ones like cerammic and wood. And wherever possible, handmade.
The bathroom tiles come from Fez in Morocco. Some of the ceramics that dress the walls were specially made for La Casa Grande by an artisan from Arcos.
From the quiet talks, the reading, the wines, the sun, the breakfast in the Patio or the Terrace to the changing lights that surprise the eye, everything invites you to relax.
La Casa Grande offers a peaceful stay with the authentic taste of tradition, where sensibility and comfort shake hands.
The Patio is a pool of light where the reflections change constantly, following the time of the day and the seasons and the movement of the blue reflections. Light pours through windows and balconies. Pink sunrise light, blinding midday light, delicate sunset light. The light.
Small details shake hands with big ones.
Nothing better to start the day than a quiet "fiesta": breakfast served in the Patio or on the roof terrace. Freshly squeezed orange juice, yogurt, fruits, fresh cheese or dry sausage, mollete (white bread roll), assorted jams and honey, corn flakes, muesli, olive oil, butter, sweet crunchy pancakes, coffe or tea and milk.
Our guests congratulate us for this opening of the day.
Solid and gracious vaults at the corners that throughout the day play to catch lights and shadows.
We like organic materials: wood, clay, iron, marble, stone. And the traditional fabrics: wool, cotton, silk and linen.
The sight stops on something nearby: a flower, a belltower… Or it gets lost amongst the hills, following a bird flying to the infinite.
The whole house seems to have been handmade by an artistic spirit, as if the builders who built it centuries ago used not only their hands, but also their hearts.
