Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

Being up in the hills, the temperature is generally cooler than down in the plains - a welcome relief during the height of the Andalusian summer. Each guest room - some in the main guesthouse, others in restored cottages dotted around the gardens - is individually decorated with great attention to detail. There is a large swimming pool with a great view, a floodlit tennis court, and plenty of good walk to enjoy.

The food is healthy Mediterranean fare, with many ingredients grown at Trasierra itself or from local suppliers. In the evenings, you can sip cocktails in the fig garden. Horse riding is available, and at certain times of year, Trasierra hosts yoga and cookery weeks.

Why we love it

Trasierra, set high in the Sierra Morena mountains north east of Seville, is owned and run by a British family with mum Charlotte overseeing and daughter Gioconda cooking up fabulous feasts. Handsome sons Jackson and George add to the attractions on offer.
