Fat Duck :: Los Cabos Mexico

It's all the Fat Duck's fault!

Well, not this little guy really ...
it's the Fat Duck project that is just consuming
my life at the moment and

I've been neglecting the blog and neglecting to visit my favourite blogs.
So, this morning I thought I'd sneak away and do a post.

A friend just recently asked me about a vacation we went on back in 2002.
It was at the time the brand new, just built Hotel Esperanza, on the Baja coast of Mexico.
Some of her clients had won a trip there and she needed some information.

I have been very fortunate to go on some amazing holidays
and this was one of my favourites, so I thought I'd share some
magnificent homes in Los Cabos.

Plus, I just wanted to dream a little ... this morning!

Casa Kristina

Casa Dos Hermanas

Casa Quaccia

A thatched cover beside the pool at Casa En La Arena.
In desert areas, this half shade provides the most practical option for staying outside.
Total shade can be too cool, while full sun can be scorchingly hot.

Casa Alcini

Can you image walking out of your bedroom straight onto the beach?

All images have been scanned from the beautiful book:
(which I picked up in Los Cabos)

Project Editor: Mauricio Martinez
Photography: Rigoberto Moreno.

This is just a snippet of the beautiful homes this book offers, that have become phenomenas in Mexican architecture.
These buildings co-exist in harmony at some times
and in contrast at others.
