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

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

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 totally unique.

Great stay at Casa Donata

  • 5 out 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 out 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 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!
