The light of the fireplace makes shadows move further away
When hands are cold and our body shivers a little there is no better thing to do than to pull up the armchair a little nearer the fire and relax a while and forget the pressures of Father Time. The fireplace is aglow and the flames roar to the chimney high, the sight creating a hypnotic calm on me and any worries receding to the far corners of my mind. The fireplace has something magic about it and the glow of the fire is a boon to one’s heart and moments of happiness are so pleasant. Here at La Perla there are corners to be found where one can appreciate the simple things in life and set aside those constant daily worries. After all, this is our holiday time, is it not? And now my hands are nicely warm!
