The House of Sleep opens in Andalucia

Casa La Siesta is a new luxury country retreat near Spain’s Costa de La Luz, and its English translation of the House of Sleep (if you don’t speak Spanish) could have you lulled into dreamland in a second. Located just minutes from historic Vejer de la Frontera, Andalucia, Spain, Casa La Siesta is housed in a building that was originally a traditional Spanish finca. It has been restored and extended by British owners Lee and Amelia Thornley who have been careful to only use reclaimed architectural materials, combining wrought iron balustrades, decorative stone arches and red stone flagging from Cordoba. They have preserved all the original features at the same time as utilising sustainable energy technology.

This new hotel with just 7 guest rooms is set in two acres of grounds with magnificent views and is easily accessible for the airports at Jerez (50 minutes), Gibraltar (1 hour) and Seville (90 minutes) and just 10 kilometres from the Costa de La Luz and its beaches. It means that Casa La Siesta combines a rural location with accessibility to the coast and the stunning white villages this area of Andalucia is most renowned for – so the perfect situation for a relaxing luxury holiday in itself, or a stop-off en route while touring the Andalucia region.

Prices and services: doubles 150 Euros, suites 170 Euros and superior suites 190 Euros, low season.   The hotel does not accept guests under 15 years of age, unless part of an ‘exclusive use’ booking.   Prices include breakfast, all drinks including beers, soft drinks and shorts but excluding wine, complimentary use of bicycles, in-room i-pods and docking stations, pillow menu, bath robes, REN bath products, sun creams and all non-alcoholic refreshments.

  1. It is so different from having a luxury hotel or resort. The intimacy makes it a special vacation, its more of an intimate experience. Something to cherish and memories to last a lifetime.
