Beautifully restored Andalusian Hacienda, Seville

Beautifully restored 16th Century Andalusian Hacienda, situated 80 km from Sevilla in the Natural Park Sierra Norte, a part of the Biosphere Reserve of Unesco. This historical building, with 5 apartments and 3 reception rooms, has been magnificently reformed, keeping many original details, yet the structure has been reforced for the hacienda to survive many more centuries.

The first use of this spectacular country property was as an ice-factory, storing and providing ice for the city of Seville. Further on in history the building was converted into a slaughter house and produced the famous Pata Negra ham. Nowadays, after restauration, it contains 5 spacious and well finished apartments, a large reception area with catering facilities, o lovely lounge, many terraces and sitting areas and a pool. A stunning place, surrounded by an olive grove, were you can relax with friends and family, enjoying the spectacular natural setting of the Sierra Norte from Seville, Andalusia.

The building oozes charm and history. Many details of the old uses can still be found: the ice pits, the beams and nails to dry the ham, the old tiled ceilings, terracotta floors. Even though this used to be an industrial building, it feels very homely now and forms the perfect spot to spend time with friends and family or to use as a base for holidays to explore the many trails and hikes and to enjoy the authentic Andalusian cuisine in one of the Ventas (restaurants) on your route.

The large reception room gives way to the different appartments, a kitchen area, the chapel and the covered terrace. Each appartment also has it’s own entrance from the outside and four of them have their own terraces which makes it ideal to rent out as well. One of the appartments is suitable for disabled people. It would be possible to create two more guest appartments if necesary. Next to these there is a studio for a caretaker. Secluded, a little bit away from the house you will find the large swimming pool and sunbathing terraces.

The restauration has been awarded with a price and a special mention by the local Authorities and the EUROPA NOSTRA AWARDS 2006 in recognition of a valuable contribution to the conservation and enhancement of cultural heritage.

The property has its own water well, is connected to mains electricity and has WIFI internet. It is located at a 1 hour drive from Seville airport and ideally situated, close to a railway station that will take you directly into the center of Seville or Cordoba.
