Mas De La Serra Aargon, SPAIN

Mas De La Serra is a fortified restored farmhouse set in 60 acres of grounds. A truly beautiful place to stay, it is a wilderness retreat and boutique hotel overlooking the coastal range in Spain and rated by The Times in its Top 20 European Mountain Retreats.

Peaceful, boutique homeliness. The owner, Scottish-born Alasdair Grant, is a TV producer who has worked on food and travel programmes for over 15 years and has used his experiences to create a stunning retreat.

He spent seven years restoring the ‘maisa’ to achieve the perfect balance of old and new and to create a home-away-from-home ambience. If you crave privacy, there’s plenty of space to do so – lounge on one of its four terraces, by the inifinty pool or in one of its sitting rooms; meander through its vast grounds, or take a walk along the mountain footpaths and marvel at the incredible views. You may even spot a wild ibex.

Inside, there are eight beautiful and individually decorated double bedrooms, all with wonderful views overlooking the almond groves and surrounding mountains, and en-suite tadelakt plastered bathrooms. There is also a hammam, cinema room, cellar and heated infinity pool. Family heirlooms and contemporary light and furniture fill the house, along with hints of the owner’s Scottish heritage and a unique collection of Alasdair’s family whiskies in the bar.
