Sierra Norte de Sevilla

The Natural Park of the Sierra Norte is located north of the province of Seville, in a mid-mountain region and is part of the Biosphere Reserve "the meadows of the Sierra Morena" of UNESCO. It has an important animal population, headed by mammals such as wild cats, otters, wild boar, deer,

fallow deer and mouflon. The birds in the park is also varied and plentiful, highlighting the black and griffon vulture, black stork and imperial eagles, royal, toed and driveway. As for the flora, the Sierra Norte is characterized by wide open stands areas alternating with forests of oak trees. In the shady forest areas thrive oaks and other trees like chestnut, pine and elm. On the banks of the rivers, the Huéznar and Viar, gallery forests formed by ash alders and willows occur.

The Sierra Norte provides the opportunity to practice numerous outdoor activities: hiking, horseback riding, cycling, and for the more adventurous there is the temptation to practice climbing on the Cerro del Hierro. Hunting is another option, given the existence of several big game preserves. The fishing enthusiasts have two trout preserves on the banks of Huéznar (permission) and water from the swamps of Huéznar, Retortillo and Pintado.

In the Sierra Norte are ten authentic villages, each town with its own charm, its own history and their own parties.

A wonderful cottage in the countryside!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed in the cottage for 8 nights, having taken the train from Madrid down to Seville. We found the cottage to be very nice and extremely comfortable. We had a hire-car and used it to visit the city of Seville, as well as some places close to El Pedroso such as the old iron mines, the waterfalls, and the nearby town of Cazalla, which has plenty of little bars and restaurants, and a few supermarkets.

Andreas who met us at the cottage was very kind, he showed us around the nearby rivers, sent us directions to bars, and he brought us some delicious vegetables from his nearby plot. The pool was lovely and we used it every day, the wifi worked very well. The cottage was cozy and clean and the whole trip was very relaxing - at night you could hear a lot of wildlife roaming around.

Maison agréable, cadre agréable ...

  • 4 of 5

En quelques mots, les + et les - de cette location :

Les points positifs :

* Maison en bon état, bien entretenue [le linge de maison, les draps ... c'est propre ]

* cadre agréable

* localisation intéressante (en gros : 50min de Séville - 1h30 de Cordoue)

* Le propriétaire Andrès est très accueillant, propose de découvrir les environs, a de bons conseils, de bons légumes ;-)

Les points négatifs :

* La piscine est à partager avec une autre location qui se trouve en contrebas (ce n'est pas forcément grave, mais il faut le savoir).

* La route est assez proche de la maison, c'est quelques fois un peu bruyant

Ceci étant dit, nous avons passé un très bon séjour.

Merci encore à Andrès pour son accueil ; à Gina & Diana pour leur gentillesse ; à Lola et Lana pour leur joie de vivre :-)

Un bel endroit pour se ressourcer

  • 4 of 5

Au beau milieu de la Sierra Norte, Andrès vous accueille dans son domaine " La umbria de la Ribeira ". Il vous fera même faire une petite séance de trekking dans un ruisseau pour aller vers un torrent et une jolie cascade. Si vous préférez, vous pourrez vous rafraîchir dans la piscine. Les légumes de saison du jardin sont à votre disposition et la petite maison au charme andalou vous séduira. Petit bémol : l'équipement cuisine est un peu sommaire.( cafetière , casserole).Pour les amoureux de la nature, ce sera un lieu très agréable sans oublier le charme et les commodités de la jolie commune de Constantina qui se trouve à 15km.

Nous serons heureux de retourner à la Umbria de la Ribeira

Philippe et Barbara

Très belle villa au calme en pleine nature

  • 5 of 5

La villa La Ombria de la Ribera à El Pedroso est très bien située, dans le parc naturel de la Sierra Norte, pas loin de Séville et de Cordoue. La région est très très belle et très intéressante pour les amateurs d'oiseaux (vautours, pies bleues, guêpiers, cigognes, ...). La villa est fort bien équipée et la piscine plus qu'agréable, surtout en juillet ! le propriétaire, Mr Delgado, est très attentionné. Vous pourrez goûter les produits de sa ferme (miel, oeufs, confiture, ...). Et il pourra vous conseiller de jolis endroits à voir dans la région ainsi que des balades. On a passé une super semaine !
