Fun for everyone

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 cleaver 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 meter swimming pool with sun loungers and deck chairs, walled and gated to make it secure for children, 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.

 

A whimsical pebble-stone and red tile path brings you to El Conejo. A few steps to its solid wood door and through into the open plan living, dining and kitchen area. Each cottage is unique but they all share the same traditional, rustic, timeless decor harmoniously combined for happy living. No matter the season, it is always perfect here. The large open fireplace surrounded by comfy chairs and sofa for the cooler months, the lovely terraces accessed from the living area and from the main bedroom, offer a perfect place for alfresco meals at almost any time of the year. The well-equipped kitchen will invite you to make delicious meals with the wonderful, fresh produce available from the local market.  The second bathroom (shower only) is also on this level.
From the living room a wooden open staircase takes you up to the gallery above and the twin bedroom overlooking the living area.
The main bedroom is off the living room, has an en suite bathroom (shower only) and direct access to the furnished terrace, where you can immerse yourself in a world of peace and nature leaving all sense of stress and hurry behind you.

What do guests say about this villa?

BEST PLACE EVER!! Asserts Karen. That is some endorsement! From the fog-horn donkey to the beautifyl Nana, this has been a delight. From our first day it was decided that we must return and soon. Stunningly designed cottages in a little piece of heaven. Thank you.

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.
