Luxury country estates for sale in Andalucia

The Spanish Peninsula experienced major advances from the Cristian kingdoms and the Moorish empires. Hectares and hectares of land were acquired by the Feudal lords over time. Agrarian projects and luxury retreats were set in land and stone from Córdoba to Seville. Our exclusive country estate for sale in Andalucia, near Seville, was once upon a time a true feudal paradise. The oldest buildings of the estate are the chapel and the main Cortijo. They present classic features that could even date back to the 16th century.

The story tells that a charming Arab Prince acquired it around the 20th century. Even though the exact details are unknown, the architectural footprint for sure calls back to Arab royal history! Endless Alhambra-like water features in the gardens… The smell of orange blossom on the patios… Mosaic tiles throughout the buildings. The original chapel remained standing: it was the biggest sign of respect the Prince could show towards Spanish history. Now, when you walk around the estate, you are breathing the air that nobility once enjoyed too! One can truly enjoy the grandiosity of the architecture as well as the private – yet open – setup of the estate. In conclusion, a real gentleman’s estate, as they used to call it.

Above all, the art of living is, after all, living. The fruits of the labour of such an estate should therefore not be sought in capital benefits.
