Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Hinojos - Casa Donana

4 Bed, 2 Bathroom House with private pool between Seville and golden beaches

Delightful rural house set in a magnificent umbrella pine wood by the historic village of Hinojos on the edge of the Donana National Park. 35 mins from the vibrant flamenco city of Seville and miles of golden sandy beaches. This perfect rural get-away-from-it-all retreat house is ideal for relaxing, swimming in the child friendly pool, sunbathing and enjoying a barbecue with friends. The peaceful house has air-conditioning, fans, 4 double bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a double sofa bed, fully-fitted kitchen, large lounge with open log fire and ample off-road parking. The private and secure 1000m2 garden is complete with orange and lemon trees, children’s play area & sand pit. There are bars and restaurants within a 10 minute walk and the centre of the village and supermarkets are a 5 min drive. The area is central to all the major birding sites in the Donana region and the rare Spanish Imperial Eagle has been regularly seen close to the house. This is a fabulous get-away-from it house which is very well located to many wonderful locations.

About Reuben Gates

Ali and I bought this house for a number of reasons. The primary reason for buying the property was for us to be able to enjoy family holidays with our three children, especially while they are young. Another key reason was partly selfish because I love bird watching and coming here with my brother who is also an avid birdwatcher. Finally of course we saw it as an opportunity to rent this property out to other people who may also enjoy it for these and other reasons.

Reuben Gates purchased this house in 2003

Why Reuben Gates chose Hinojos

Because it is so well located to the best birdwatching arguably in Europe and also because it is off the beaten track with as few Brits as possible. We also chose this part of Andalucía because we wanted to ensure that the weather would be as good as possible, ie South Spain should be more regularly warm and lovely compared to say France or Northern Spain.

What makes this house unique

As mentioned pretty unrivalled access to wildlife and very much off the beaten track. The cowboy town of El Rocio is also totally unique.

Perfecta para relajarse y desconectar.

  • 4 of 5

Una bonita casa en Hinojos. Nosotros buscábamos tranquilidad y relax, y sin duda es un lugar donde la encuentras. El único inconveniente que le vimos es que necesitas el coche para moverte a cualquier lugar ya que es una urbanización que está a las afueras, pero si tienes coche no supone ningún problema.

Lo mejor de todo, poder despertarte, darte un baño en la piscina, coger una naranja del árbol para desayunar y escuchr el canto de los pájaros tumbada en una hamaca.

Gran amabilidad por parte de Reuben y Mary, ya que contactamos con muy poca antelación y aun así nos lo prepararon todo para que estuviéramos como en casa.

Si volvemos de visita por Hinojos, repetiremos sin dudarlo.

Wonderfully Relaxing - A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a real "get away from it all" break and we weren't disappointed in our choice. The house is lovely and very comfortable and although it was a little chilly to be in the pool we certainly enjoyed whiling away a good few hours sitting by it and enjoying the sunshine.

We felt at home straight away in the house so it certainly lives up to the home away from home description.

Seville is only 35/40 minutes away and well worth a day trip. We also went to El Rocio and both enjoyed that too.

I am sure this won't be our only trip to Casa Donana and we would definitely recommend it to others. Helpful team locally and an equally helpful and enthusiastic owner in the UK.

Great stay at Casa Donata

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a real 'get away from it all' break. House was a good size and the private pool was adored by the kids (19, 13, 7 and 4). Lovely beaches around 30 mins away and some great local towns particularly Pilas where there is a good selection of shops and restaurants (including a wonderful tapas place that was as good as anywhere we've eaten in the last 10 years). Lovely walks from the house out into a stunning and incredibly peaceful forest area. Seville only 30 mins away which was well worth a day trip. Helpful team locally and friendly owner back in the UK. Highly recommended - we will be back!

Beautiful tranquil authentic Spain

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with the rustic look and feel of the location of Casa Doñana and the fact it was miles away from any resort was a huge plus. The villa was clean and comfortable. We loved the pool and BBQ was put to use more than once. If you love a bit of culture then this is an ideal location, a 25 minute drive to Seville, a beautiful city, we will definitely be back to carry on our cultural exploration of Spain!! Thank you Reuben, Ali and family for sharing your amazing Villa with us, can't wait to get the next trip booked, must brush up further on my Spanish first!

Our holiday favourite!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Casa Donana for the first time in 2004 and last year it was our 10th visit, once in the spring and nine times late autumn - early winter. The location is simply great. Our main interest is nature, especially bird-watching and hiking. However, a nearly endless choice of other activities are close to Hinojos. We have visited Portugal, hiked in the Aracena region and enjoyed not only El Rocio, but Ronda and Jerez as well. Sevilla with all its pleasures is an hour away and for people interested in history, the Roman city of Italica is equally close.

The beautiful house is spacious and the garden with the pool a delight.

We most emphatically recommend Casa Donana.

A great combination of wildlife and culture

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for a relaxing and inspiring holiday. Within easy reach of Seville and the coast, and with the most astonishing wildlife on our doorstep. Recommended not only for bird-watchers such as myself, but as a place to get away from it all, while at the same time within easy reach of inspiring and interesting towns and villages. Very Spanish and very different from the "Costas".
