As the October nights draw in, we can think of nothing we'd rather be doing than relaxing poolside in a balmier clime, which is why we're craving the luxury of Hotel Trasierrra, a restored 16th century house in the Sierra Morena Mountains, just north of Seville, Spain. A large private estate that can be rented in its entirety or split into three private houses and cottages, it's a chic retreat in the beautifully unspoilt Andalucian countryside. Former glitterati guests include Kate Moss, Bryan Ferry and Damien Hirst.
And for a real escape from the stresses of daily life, Trasierra will now be host to a series of yoga and healing weekends. Experienced London-based healer, Georgia Coleridge will be teaching practical every day healing techniques and Trasierra's resident yoga guru Amber Scott (of website Must Do Yoga) will hold yoga classes intended to boost and clear your energy over a long weekend.
The next weekend yoga retreats will be held at Trasierra from the 11 - 15 October 2012 and 16 - 20 May 2013 and cost €750 for four nights at full board. For further information visit trasierra.eu or mustdoyoga.eu.
