Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, amidst cork oak and chestnut trees, in the heart of the Sierra de Aracena – These six stone-built cottages could not be in a more stunningly beautiful location. The cottages crescent around the garden, looking out to the lush Alajar valley and gorgeously green hills of the Sierra de Aracena beyond.

The six cottages are built in traditional rural style from all local materials, the thick walls from local stones, the warm terracotta floor tiles, the chestnut beamed and planked ceilings all locally obtained, the decor a clever mix of local and antique furniture. Inside, each cottage is a welcoming little home, comfortable, neat and tidy, furnished and decorated in keeping with its country-cottage style. Each has a furnished terrace, a perfect spot to enjoy your lunch or a late dinner under the stars. The gardens all around resplendent with flowering shrubs, plants spilling out of terracotta pots, flowers, overhanging trees….heavenly nature all around. The exuberance of vegetation around the cottages secures privacy between them.

Shared facilities include the lovely 11 x 5.5 metre swimming pool with sun loungers and deck chairs, walled and gated to make it secure for children, and also an artificial grass tennis court (please bring your own equipment)…And plenty of outdoor space!

This is an ideal point from which to explore and discover this most beautiful part of Andalucia. Surrounded by great walking, cycling and riding country, with lots of pretty villages to explore, the closest is Alajar, with a great selection of bars and restaurants just a short walk away.

 

This is a nature-lovers paradise like no other!  And if you wish to venture further afield you again meet with a wide range of option:

The lovely town of Aracena and its famous caves (Gruta de las Maravillas) is just a twenty minute drive away. Doñana wildlife sanctuary, on the coast of Huelva, is less than two hours away. If you want a taste of the city, Sevilla, one of Spain’s most beautiful is also less then two hours drive – or you can hop across the Portuguese border at Rosal de la Frontera, just one hours drive from Alajar..to name just a few.

El Buho is the smallest of the six cottages, it is an ideal choice for a couple wanting an escape to a little slice of rural paradise. All on the ground floor, the welcoming studio room is large enough to comfortably accommodate the double bed and living area, the ensuite bathroom has a walk in shower – The decoration is rural, warm and welcoming. From this main room an archway takes you to a lovely, well equipped kitchen with a small dining area. To the side of the cottage is a small private terrace that enjoys the wonderful views.
There is a wood burning stove to make sure you are cozy and warm on the cooler nights

What do guests say about this villa?

You were great hosts. We felt welcomed the moment we arrived. We very enjoyed our stay, even though a very short one, it was a fantastic get-away from city life set in an ideal location. The grounds were very well kept and the house has absolutely everything you need. There are many natural and beautiful walking routes around the area. To finish off, this has been a very relaxing and enjoyable stay for us, including our tow dogs. We are sure to return in the future.

More about this region

Sierra de Aracena

The Natural Park of Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche is in the most westerly part of Andalucía, in the province of Huelva. Here the landscape is of green woodlands, mountain streams and pretty white villages. Sevilla is little more than an hour's drive away so it's surprising that this region is almost unheard of outside Andalucía. With surprises at every turn—Templar castles, caves, fiestas and gastronomical delights—this corner of Andalucía is uniquely beautiful and wholly original.
