SUPERB MANSION WITH POOL AND GARDEN IN THE HEART OF ANDALUSIA

Ecija Villa Rental Photos and Description

An exceptional setting for an unforgettable holiday.

Visit the wonderful nearby sites of Moorish Spain such as Cordoba, Seville and Granada and come back to relax by the pool in the garden with a glass of wine or listen to the fountain in the pillared patio. Here is your chance to stay in a superb 18th century Andalusian mansion recently converted to retain all its historic charm but with elegant modern facilities such as the large swimming pool, very well appointed kitchen and a library with over a 1000 books, a wide collection of film DVDs and wifi internet connection.

The house itself is very spacious (the diningliving room is over 60 m2) and there is a wide choice of comfortable bedrooms, each individually furnished and with shared but direct access to large bathrooms.

The kitchen is very big and well appointed, allowing more than one cook to feed large families. It opens onto the garden as well as onto the vast diningliving room. But restaurants and tapas bars abound within walking distance, so maybe you will not do much cookin

6 of us stayed in this house in Ecija for 10 days in late May 2012. Initially we felt the approach to the town looked a little uninteresting, but the house is in the old centre which is a maze of narrow streets (hire a small car and beware the kerbs...) and towers.

The house is beautifully renovated and the library (you really don't need to bring novels) was a plus as was the use of the laptop and internet. At the time of year we went we found the house cool (clearly built to be kept cool in the extreme heat- take fleeces at that time of year) but there was a good supply of olive wood for the fire (easy to light and a real focus) and, although we used the gas heaters we didn't get around to using the bedroom ACs as heating. It was refreshing to find such items as loo paper, and dishwasher tablets provided, and, we left ours to replenish the supplies. When we had a problem re the gas bottles we emailed the owner and her representative, Malcolm (one of the very few British people within 30 miles) came straight away to resolve it.

We found that the people were extremely friendly and made every effort to understand our generally very basic Spanish. There was a good supermarket within walking distance - marked on the map in the house- and we used that and the local shops rather than the local Carrefour. The very near covered market was wonderful for fruit and vegetables.

Our hire cars were essential (beware the 'ramp' into the garage- drove in once, scaped the bottom noisily, and decided this was not sensible), then used street parking. We visited Cadiz, Seville, Carmona, Cordoba and Malaga- no need to list the cultural highspots I'm sure.

In general a very interesting place to stay for the feel of a working Spanish town with an historical centre that begins to grow on you.

Ecija is ideally situated on the A4 motorway between Seville (45mn) and Cordoba (20mn), with easy access to Granada, Ronda and other tourist sites.

There are daily flights to Seville from London, Liverpool and Dublin with low cost companies.

Malaga airport is 90mn away.

There are natural parks ( sierra de Hornachuelos, sierra norte de Sevilla) only a few minutes drive away from Ecija, where eagles can be spotted in the bright blue sky.

Ecija has retained a lot of its andalusian character and boast a stunning Museum, as well as many palaces, churches and 11 Baroque church towers, home to huge storks nests! The roman mosaics and the "Wounded Amazon", masterpieces from the 2nd century AD found locally, are said to be some of the finest in the world.

There is also a large shopping mall with all the modern shops and supermarkets as you get in the town from Seville.
