Locked down and twiddling our thumbs, our gaze was drawn up to the inherited office suspended ceilings. Above them lay majestic chestnut beams that pitched in lofted, jaunty repose. Like a reveal of an ancient labour, languishing in an entombed modern, insipid shroud of plaster tiles.
Thus ensued the turning back of time in this great Cortijo, as the ceilings came down with a clatter and the beams were lavished with respect.
A labour of love but indeed, a love which will endure.
Lock-down launch party . June 2020.
Welcome to the
New Leaf Cortijo
Hola amigos y amigas.
We hope you are all well,fit and safe in these surreal times of fear addled confinement. The Covid pandemic has afforded many of us time to reflect on our existence and perspective on the priorities of our lives. These values, previously for some dominated by materialism and self gratification, are under scrutiny and introspection . One can only be optimistic in hoping, a swell of empathy and altruism be borne out of this profound episode , which has exposed the vulnerability and misdirected path of society.
Spain has been ravaged, but is forging a strategy to cautiously open its doors to its people and the world beyond. Quarantine of travelers arriving from abroad have been relaxed, as of July 1st.
We are open for business and look forward to host beleaguered and exhausted guests to recharge in tranquility and peaceful Andalucian countryside.
Upesh y Sara
Come on in…
