Trasierra Hotel in Seville
Found up high in the Sierra Morena Mountains, enjoying panoramic views over the plains of Seville, the romantic capital of Andalucía, Trasierra Hotel is probably the best getaway in the area.
The property dates back from the 16th century, being surrounded by acres of orange and olive groves. It was superbly restored by Charlotte Scott, its owner, and her family, now being converted into a peaceful retreat, very sought-after by those who wish for complete serenity. The rooms have actually been converted from an olive press, cool terraces and outbuildings, now being extremely cozy and welcoming. They are linked by cobbled pathways and flanked by lacy aromatic plants, which bestow guests with a superb feeling of tradition, mixed with luxury.
Located just an hour away from Seville International Airport, Trasierra merges together the atmosphere of an English home with authentic Spanish tradition. It has already witnessed visits many from famous figures, like Damien Hirst, who’s even designed the artwork for the famous marmalade of the property, and Kate Moss, who’s spent her 30th birthday here. Trasierra Hotel comprises a total of 18 stunningly appointed rooms, some of them fitted with fireplaces, porches, sitting rooms and private terraces.
The hotel’s location, an hour away from the town of Seville, in Spain, makes it possible for guests to have access to all sorts of restaurants, boutiques and all sorts of places to visit. Interesting enough, during June Trasierra Hotel will be running a photography and visual arts course dubbed How To See. It’ll be hosted by design critic Stephen Bayley alongside fabled photographer David Montgomery, author of many iconic shots from the 1960s.
