DELIGHTFUL 4 BED HOUSE IN BEAUTIFUL WOODLAND SETTING WITH PRIVATE POOL & AIR CON

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

1000m2 of private orange orchard 35 mins from Seville & golden sandy 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.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

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! :)

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.

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

Our holiday favourite!

  • 5 out 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 out 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".

A haven of tranquility for 2 busy Brits!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our 3rd visit and we've booked a 4th visit for 2014. We love this house, we love the area, and we love the welcome that we receive. The people who look after the house always give us useful information and good advice. This is a very special part of Spain. Quite unlike anywhere else we have visited in the country, and well away from the ex-pat ghettos. If you love biodiversity and like to be in natural surroundings, then this is the perfect location. A real haven.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay in this beautifull and relaxing place! We spend ten days here with four friends. We mainly came to the Coto Donana area to enjoy the nature, watch birds and relax. And we certainly succeeded in doing that. During our stay it was very hot, nearly 40 degrees. We spend early mornings and late afternoons exploring the area and spend the afternoons in or near the pool, perfect! From the garden we saw booted eagles, griffon vultures, azure winged magpies, and there was always a bee-eater or hoopoe calling nearby. And there was so much more to see in the nearby areas surrounding Hinojos, like little owls and red-necked nightjars at various spots. In the house itself there is a lot of information about things to see and do in the area. I would recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a nice and quiet retreat in a beautifull nature area. Hopefully we can visit again!

Fantastic villa, great location

  • 5 out of 5
6 of us stayed at Casa Donana (us, children and grandparents) and had a fantastic time. We went at the beginning of April so it was chilly first thing in the morning, but it soon warmed up and the kids were in the pool in the afternoon. Location is great, particularly if you enjoy nature. We watched booted eagles, bee-eaters, azure-winged magpies and hoopoes from the garden and it's an ideal spot to visit Donana.

It is also handy for visiting El Rocio, 30 minutes to some lovely beaches and easy to get into Seville.

Local area is really unspoilt and not at all touristy. Prices (such as eating out) were much more reasonable than other areas of the Mediterranean that I've visited.

Really looking forward to going back.

The Perfect Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We spent just over two weeks here in September 2011. Perfect weather, lovely pool, well-kept garden, and clean, comfortable villa, with everything we needed. Very reasonably priced. We came here for the wildlife (Coto de Donana) but trips to Seville, Portugal, the beaches of the Costa de la Luz and the nearby hills are also easy. The area itself isn't so well-known, and was therefore a lovely surprise - very different from the usual Costas, with very few foreigners and lots of friendly Spanish locals. We don't usually visit a place more than once (too many places in the world to visit!) but this is one place that we would visit again.
