The Dar Cilla Team
Sammi was born here in the Campo de Gibraltar and has lived in the area all her life. Speaking both Spanish and English because of her English parents and schooling in Gibraltar, she has a good deal of local knowledge and is happy to help in any way she can.
Zoë, the owner, is ‘still going strong’, and enjoying the contact with her guests on the roof terrace. Her enthusiasm for Tarifa, for Andalusia, and for Morocco is catching. Zoë worked in more than 8 countries in the course of her career, before ‘retiring’ to set up a guest house in Tarifa. ‘If I ever thought this would be the easiest job of the lot, I couldn’t have been more wrong’, she will tell you. But she loves it. Zoë is English by birth, Dutch by marriage .... and feels very Dutch.
Peter is the handyman to beat all handymen! A qualified electrician, he can turn his hand to almost anything, and no job is too big or too small for him. He even built me a new tortoise house for Bim, my Moroccan tortoise. In a guesthouse with eight apartments, and a climate that is as severe as that of Tarifa (predominantly the wind) there is always, but always something that needs repairing. Peter is English, his wife is Spanish, and their young son chatters away non-stop in both languages
