Description

Details

Dating back to the 16th Century and set in 400 acres of olive grove, chestnut woods and cork forests, the estate was once a working olive farm and press. Located in the heart of the Sierra Morena mountains, and in a Natural Park, it overlooks some of the most breathtakingly beautiful and unspoiled landscapes in Europe. The house itself is more like a walled village and the buildings, which are both grand and cosy, have been lovingly and carefully restored and are linked by cobbled paths leading to private terraces and gardens. Massive terracotta olive jars lead you on a mystery tour through courtyards planted with lavender, jasmine and vines.

The main house is home to 2 or 3 large, well furnished reception rooms, with fireplaces and large comfy sofas and dining tables for dinner parties or large gatherings.  There is a bar, a staff room and a kitchen. Card tables, television,  projector and screen are set up in one. All room are decorated with taste and charm and each one has its own character. (Extra Staff accommodation on request)
The guest house has it’s own small kitchen and dining room, a porch with wicker furniture and a long cobbled terrace behind in an almond grove overlooking the spectacular sunsets. There is also a cottage on the other side of the courtyard with a sitting room and a small kitchenette, making it ideal for people with children who would like a bit more independence. The whole property is often taken by one family and sleep in the garden/guest house and use the sitting rooms of the main house and invite friends to sleep in the main house.

The sense of intimate space and privacy make this an ideal house for private family groups or celebrations.  Only 80 km from the romantic Seville and one hour from the international airport and high speed train to Madrid, an ideal escape from London or other cities.
