Peek at One of Spain’s Most Secluded Private Resorts

Trasierra is a fitness and culinary adventurer’s Valhalla.

Nestled among orange and olive groves in the hills north of Seville, Trasierra is the kind of word-of-mouth hotel where the glamor is understated, the marmalade comes straight from the backyard, and guests feel like part of the family. Owner Charlotte Scott gradually transformed that ruin into one of the most elegant, low-key hotels in Europe–a place where society-page fixtures go to disappear, and the rest of us go to come to life.

You can start your day with a spring lunch with traditional Spanish sangria and fried Marcona almonds, unhurriedly moving along to highlight other classics (marinated anchovies, garlic and almond soup, lamb and potatoes served with stewed artichokes) that Gioconda has made quietly her own.

Early morning yoga routines are a popular starter for those ready to sip the thin mountain air. Later, there may be dancing by the fire in the drawing room. Read more at Bon Appetit.
