When you are in need of a breather, drive up to idyllic Hacienda Isabella and give yourself an extraordinary timeout. Whether you are flying solo, coupled up, or with a group, Hacienda Isabella provides a beautiful setting for soul-searching and creating lasting memories.
One of the most remarkable things about Hacienda Isabella is the overwhelming presence of art in every nook and cranny. From original paintings and replicas of famous works to lovely antique pieces, everything comes together superbly and lends an aura of old world to the place. Use your time to explore and appreciate the art or (carefully) tinker with the antiques on display. The stacks of old, leather trunks or the row of antique cameras and typewriters are worth checking out. Likewise, the scenic environment is conducive to creating art of your own. For enthusiasts, dabblers, and experts, don’t forget to bring your own creative tools; inspiration will definitely strike while you’re there. Pack a canvas or your DSLR, so you can capture the calmness of Hacienda Isabella and remember it long after you leave.
Soulful reflection always calls for a bit of reading and Hacienda Isabella is the ideal environment for both. Pick up books you’ve been meaning to read on the way there, and use the weekend to catch up on your reading list. Find a cozy spot under one of the many trees or take advantage of the luxurious daybeds scattered within the area, and lose yourself in that new romance novel you’ve been dying to read but never had time for. If the moods calls for some internalizing, grab a self-help book by your favorite author or a current bestseller. You may even choose to lay a blanket on the huge, grassy lawn, put on your shades, and get a tan — while devouring your hot read. Take naps when you feel like it.
Before going on your great country getaway, load your iPod with songs that get you into thinking mode. Then, play them as you stroll along Hacienda Isabella’s breezy grounds first thing in the morning. Look for a comfortable place where you can think clearly and reflect on what is going on in your life. Jot down any significant thoughts on your journal. Writing them down will help you keep track of the breakthroughs you stumble upon while on hiatus, so you know which areas of your life need to be worked on. Hacienda Isabella’s unassuming atmosphere is suitable for coming up with groundbreaking resolutions that you could put into action as soon as your weekend retreat is over.
Renowned singer and Hacienda Isabella owner and proprietor Kuh Ledesma, together with her brother, L.A.-based landscape artist Constantino Ledesma, are both sticklers for perfection — and that much is clear the moment you set your eyes on the hacienda’s awe-inspiring lush greenery.
