WHAT TO DO
The seasons are very marked in this part of Spain . All are spectacularly beautiful in their own way. May and September can overlap into Summer, so be prepared.
Please don’t fear the heat. Although Sevilla can be one of the hottest places in Europe , at Trasierra there is always a breeze as we are 650m above sea level .

Staying in touch
Although our idea is for you to leave your office behind, there is wireless internet in some places and you can connect with the outside world by mobile phone; although we prefer you to restrict its use to your room or outside in the hills.
If you run out of ideas, you can always raid the Trasierra Dressing up Box. It is open all year round.
