    Mas de la Serra, Aragon - Spain

    Mas de la Serra, just over an hour from the Mediterranean coast but a world away from developed tourism, is an off-the-beaten-track restored farmhouse that can be rented as a whole or as individual rooms.

    Relax under a Star-Filled Sky

    This remote hideaway is perfect for active families who want to break away from the crowds, or couples seeking solace in nature. Art fans may like to join the hotels annual painting week in September. In the evenings, there’s always hearty Spanish-Peruvian cuisine in the candlelit restaurant or under a star-filled sky on the terrace, accompanied by fine wines from the wine cellar.

    The Lowdown

    • Cost

      5 nights from £895 per person including flights and car hire. Based on 2 adults travelling and sharing a double room. Bed and breakfast.

    RUSTIC CHARM

    The style is rustic yet comfortable, with wooden beamed ceilings, thick stone walls and windows that frame the view onto the surrounding pine forests and rocky outcrops. Outside, there’s a stunning infinity pool and lawn that overlook the wild landscape of almond groves, ancient vineyards and gnarled oak trees. From here, a warm breeze carries the scent of rosemary and jasmine, and you may spot an eagle whirling overhead.

    WILD SWIMMING & KAYAKING

    Tempting as it is to relax in such a unique and peaceful environment, we do recommend exploring the surrounding countryside. Set out early before the heat of the day hits and discover waterfalls, wild swimming and kayaking. Nearby there’s good fishing in mountain streams to while away the day, and horse riding along old bridleways is an exhilarating way to explore the rocky terrain. Local villages are perfect for wandering along cobbled streets and the Medieval walled village of Morella seems beautifully stuck in time.

    Afterwards, curl up in the home cinema for a relaxing end to the day.

    There are so many reasons to love this unique hideaway. We enjoyed spotting local Ibex from our bedroom window and hiking up to the viewpoint to see stunning scenery and distant vultures with a delicious Pisco Sour sun-downer. Heaven!
