Trasierra is a charming boutique hotel nestled in Andalucia's Sierra Morena Mountains. The aromas of the garden suffuse the air and the 350-acre estate is replete with olive and orange groves, owned by Charlotte Scott and her family, who have given this unique spot a home-from-home feel that will leave guests feeling relaxed & at ease. White-washed walls, terracotta roofs and charming interiors which mix traditional English and Spanish country design create a simple rustic ambience. Coupled with the amiable hosts, Trasierra is a hotel for those who wish to be treated as friends and relax in a tasteful chic retreat. Yoga breaks are held throughout the year.
Guests at Trasierra can enjoy the beautiful surroudings on long walks, go horseriding, or take a day to go birdwatching and observe the large variety of local blooms. Tennis is available at Trasierra and guests can relax in nature and do yoga (specific Yoga courses run througout the year). To capture the beauty, paint the landscape with the aid of Trasierra's inspiring artist tutors or read a book in the comfort of the sitting room. In October, shooting can be arranged.
Trasierra's other courses include Spanish lessons, photography, musical weekends & talks on flamenco and can be organised on request. Yoga Retreats are held throughout the year. Rates and dates available on request.
The Trasierra menu has been created by some excellent local cooks and the Scott family and uses ingredients picked from the Trasierra garden and sourced from local suppliers. Simple local dishes have been given a contemporary twist, and guests can expect refreshing salads, perfect in the summer sun, unfussy meat and fish dishes, and there is always a leg of pata negra jamon iberico from one of the local farms which is served with bread brushed with garlic, tomato & local olive oil. The winter menu includes dishes such as chickpea and chard soup, meat stews with herbs and baked local pears in wine, and no guest of Trasierra should leave without trying the homemade marmalade. A lunch buffet is served by the pool under the shade of a pergola.
