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

The airport is just on the other side of Seville, to the east, and it's a straightforward half-hour drive along the A-4 and A-49. Seville has great train connections - high-speed AVE trains will get you here from Madrid in less than three hours, and there's also a long-distance overnight train from Barcelona.

We could walk to all the interesting locations in old Seville and any amount of bars and restaurants. Ramon was a delightful host who took the time to talk us through all the places to see, eat etc - would definitely recommend El Pasaje (any of their 3 tapas bars) for value and quality.

We arrived on a Sunday and were very pleased to find that Juan had put some food and drink in the fridge because the supermarkets were closed, thank you Juan. El Montecillo has extensive gardens and orchards and is like having your own mini nature reserve, with shrikes, bee-eaters and larks, the highlight being watching the red-necked nightjar coming to drink from the pool every night! The cottage is well equipped and the outdoor bed was a very welcome surprise as it was so hot at night during a heatwave and having a well maintained private pool was a luxury. If you are looking for peaceful, private and relaxing accommodation from which to explore Donana and Western Andalucia then look no further!
