If you are looking for peace and tranquility in a comfortable environment you have found it. The cottage has everything you need for your get away. Breakfast in the morning sun or a BBQ in the evening near the pool? Or just watch the amazing sunsets. When your lucky like us you can see a full moon reflecting in the pool. There's much to go out for as well. El Rio, the beach, Sevilla (rent a bike) or Ronda (which was a 2,5 hr drive but amazing). Or just stay at your cottage, make yourself some tapas and find a Spanish station on the radio and take a dive in the pool. You can buy your grocery in Villamanrique or Pilas (fresh fish). We really loved this place and learned some Spanish as well while playing monopoly :).
We enjoyed staying at this property very much. Juan is a very responsive owner and takes care of his property well. The directions were clear and the cottage was easy to find. It is a solar, self-sustaining cottage with a propane refrigerator. We had no problems with the hot water or power. We enjoyed the pool and landscaping. We went there to go birding in Donana National Park. It was very dry in the fall. Winter and spring would be a better time to visit for birding, although there was water and birds around Isla Mayor. There is a large Mercando supermarket in nearby Pilas that was great. We drove around the area and were extremely glad we stayed at the cottage. It was my husbands favorite place we stayed during our trip to Spain.
We had a wonderful few days enjoying the historic sights and friendly atmosphere of Seville, the food (the tapas were great everywhere we tried) and the relaxed solitude and well-maintained pool at the property itself. Our holiday felt like a longer break, but was over too soon!
Tucked away in the midst of agricultural land on the edge of the Donana National Park, El Montecillo is a haven of tranquillity less than an hour from Seville, and a paradise for bird lovers. The house is set in extensive grounds (very green when we visited in May after some unusually heavy rainfall), is well equipped, and thoughtfully laid out. The covered terraces on either side mean that you can always find a good spot for eating al fresco, and the pool is a lifesaver after a hot excursion.
Juan, the owner, is extremely friendly and helpful and takes great pride in his property. Don't worry if you think you've gone off-piste when following his instructions to the house: you'll get there eventually! One point to note is that the house is self-sufficient in solar-powered electricity and this restricts the kind of equipment that can be used. Thoroughly recommended.
Juan, the friendly owner met us at the cottage after our flight in to Seville airport with helpful information and guidance for our stay. The photos on the web site did not do the cottage and its surrounding justice as the cottage and surroundings are so beautiful and peaceful. We had everything we needed for our stay as the cottage is superbly equipped, clean and organised. I took frequent walks in the dream like garden and found the cottage to be a true place of rest. Seville is close enough for day trips and we also made it to Cadiz from there. There are also a lot of good restaurants in nearby towns. The beauty of the cottage is that it is an escape from the tourist trappings of the city and the result was a true holiday where I have returned home feeling rested and restored. I would strongly recommend this cottage for a stay to experience the true beauty of Andalucia. Overall, an amazing experience. We will be back!
La maison est vraiment agréable à vivre. La déco est très belle, les matériaux de qualité, et il y a tout le confort, avec en prime une cheminée pour l'hiver. Elle est aussi écologique avec des panneaux solaires. Nous avons adoré le jardin immense avec orangers, citronnier, romarins, figuier, caroubier, amandier et biens d'autres. Nous avons profité de la région pour visiter Séville, Arcos de la frontera, le Parc de Donana, Niebla, les plages de la costa de la luz, la Rabida, etc... Juan est un hôte vraiment très agréable qui parle très bien français. Une maison à recommander vivement.
