A fabulous country house retreat in the rolling hills north of Seville with a house-party atmosphere and oodles of character
Much history is wrapped into the ancient stones of Trasierra - olives were milled here for centuries and old amphorae stand as a potent witness to Times Past.
The genius of Charlotte Scott has been to create an immensely stylish, comfortable country retreat without sacrificing the essentially andaluz character of these beguiling buildings.
Arriving here you feel like breathing more deeply, slowing down, and abandoning yourself to all this beauty. The place seems to murmur ‘good book’, ‘late breakfast’ and ‘long siesta’. The complete antithesis of a chain hotel, Trasierra has been attracting those-in-the-know for a number of years. They come in the knowledge that you can be sociable when you’re in the mood or dine alone beneath the stars if you aren’t. The candlelit dinners are a highlight of any stay. Tables are hidden away beneath rambling vines and wisteria, amongst beds of white roses and lilies... the setting is enchanting and the food is superb. Trasierra near Seville is a charming guesthouse with 14 rooms and one cottage, with doubles costing from €200 for bed and breakfast.
