the farmhouse everyone dreams of the perfect escape; a special place free from distraction. For us, it’s somewhere calm and simple, an Andaluz cortijo where everything, from wood and flagstone floors to hand-crafted furniture and vast windows framing spectacular views, is naturally good. But luxurious too, in an understated, coolly contemporary way, with art, books, music, and every man-made comfort from underfloor heating to designer lighting and spa. Where you can eat the finest local artisan produce and fresh organic homegrown food, prepared by a team of talented chefs. And in good company, with conversations around the dinner table continuing late into the night under starry skies, over a glass or two of fine wine. Where you can be sure of a restful sleep in peaceful, individually-designed suites where everything is just right. Or in one of the world’s most luxurious yurts, waking to birdsong. A place that feels remote but is easy to reach; a place where you can feel at home.
