I would love to escape and stimulate my senses this weekend and I have found the perfect spot....Villa Padierna Thermas in Spain. A haven of luxury this spa hotel is nestled amongst olive and almond groves.

The grand foyer...

The original spa dates back to the 18th century.

Well instead I will be rolling out the grass in our backyard.I will probably need a trip to the spa once I am finished!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Amanda
Lovely escape plan.. and a colour to suit any mood. I agree re the Jacaranda.. they no longer hold quite the spell over me they once did. Have a great 'imaginary' weekend in Spain. Julie

oh what a completely breath taking place!!! I would love to go there. I will need to bookmark this hotel/spa!!
thank you for the sweet comment. This weekend is going to be tough, going to spend in with her children )they are 2 & 4) so her husband can have a bit of time to himself.

Have a wonderful weekend. I hope to hear the children laugh while I distract them while playing at the park.

A lot of amazing and beautiful interior designs and photoes on your blog! A wonderful blog!
I have an outdoor spa, a Jaccuzzi, in my garden, inside a spa-gazebo. Different, but lovely anyway:)
I added your blog to my "Blogs I read"-list. Have a nice week!
