  • CRAFT - We have sought out hand-embroidered sheets, local earthenware pottery, traditional Spanish willow furniture and carnival folk art for the cottage interior. We have added baskets and textiles made by us to give the cottage a unique craft touch. As local craftspeople ourselves we are happy to advise you about where to see and buy local craft and show you our own basketry and weaving workshops.
