Make a holiday apartment in Sanlucar la Mayor your home away from home

Sanlucar la Mayor holiday apartments are in a great spot, a few kilometres outsdide Seville in an area of sumptuous natural beauty. Holiday apartments in Sanlucar la Mayor afford a getaway with great versatility - you can reach Seville and its many sights in a few minutes by car, the Costa de la Luz is a simple drive to the south, while in the vicinity is the Guadiamar River, which nourishes the landscape, creating a narrow strip of picturesque greenery that extends for many kilometres. At a Sanlucar la Mayor holiday home you'll be able to escape the summer heat in a shaded garden or by taking a dip in your private pool. Rentals here are ideal for larger groups and families, and come with modern necessities like air-con, internet access and dishwashers.

Things to do

-Seville sights. The cathedral is an impressive landmark, and possibly the largest church in the world. It's built on the site of Seville's Islamic-era mosque, and this is especially evident in the La Giralda, a beautiful minaret, which was converted into a bell-tower in the 14th Century. Another stunning example of Seville's medieval heritage can be seen at the Real Alcazar, a sprawling palace in the Moorish style, also built during the 14th Century.

-Seville culture. Regarded as one of Spain's premier art museums, the Museo de Bellas Artes is free to enter if you're an EU citizen. In the vast collection here are works by important Spanish artists like El Greco, Goya and Murillo, with a focus on the Golden Age of Sevillian art, in the 1600s. Other museums of note include an attraction devoted to Flamenco dance, and an archaeology museum displaying artefacts from the ancient city of Italica.

-Natural scenery. Running in a long, vertical line, just west of Sanlucar la Mayor is the Corredor Verde de Guadiamar. It's a narrow expanse of protected scenery on the banks of the Guadiamar River. The river creates a band of greenery that is at odds with the surrounding arid landscape. On a bike ride in this park you'll see meadowland, forests, rice fields and marshes that are home to exceptionally diverse birdlife.

-Food and drink. Seville is well known for two Spanish classics - tapas and gazpacho. The latter is a cool tomato soup with pepper, garlic and other vegetables. Tapas is an institution here, and in Seville you'll find a high concentration of excellent bars around the cathedral. Among the many tapas specialities are garlic prawns, cured ham, olives, cheese from La Mancha, potato omelette and Galician-style octopus.

-Coast. Just next to the Donana National Park is Mazagon, a municipality on the Costa de la Luz, known for its long sandy beaches. The town's main beach has an urban feel, with services that include lifeguard patrol, sunbed and parasol hire, parking and showers. Neighbouring Playa de las Dunas is more remote and fringed by dunes, but it's still easy to get to the shops that line the beachfront at Mazagon.

Travel to Sanlucar la Mayor

A good house in a good place!

5 of 5
Casa Donana suited us very well for our stay of three weeks in April-May 2017. The kitchen & bathrooms worked well and the beds were comfortable. We used the pool once only but the pool itself and the area around it were very well-maintained by Doris and always looked very good. The Lantana/Plumbago/Bougainvillia hedge was a very attractive feature to look out on when sitting on the shady porch. The garden area behind the house is quite wild in character; we liked this, especially as it meant we had breeding Sardinian Warblers present. I am a very keen birdwatcher and the proximity of the house to Donana was an important factor for me in the choice of the property. Many of the best birding sites are within easy reach of the house and it is far enough away from the marshes not to be troubled by mosquitoes, so the position is close to perfect. The neighbourhood was very quiet and peaceful during our stay, with houses nearby unoccupied for much of the time. We hope to return in March 2018, deliberately coming at a different time of year to get a different birdwatching experience. The fact that we have already decided to return speaks volumes about how much we enjoyed our stay. The roads in the urbanizacion had all been turned into potholed dirt-tracks prior to our arrival, with major works being carried out. This could be a concern to some people but detracted little from our experience. Work was in progress throughout our stay and I expect the roads will be properly re-surfaced quite soon. In summary, if you want a quiet, calm place to stay that is near to the Donana birding area, then this is a fine choice.
