Fantastic Family holiday
We have stayed at Heurta Timoteo twice in the last 4 years and consider it to be an ideal holiday home in a fantastic location.
The property itself is very spacious and light, with a large, airy hallway & separate lounge with an open fireplace, a fantastic dinning room (the most beautiful, rustic dining table I have ever come across), and a simple but absolutely practical, clean kitchen. We always tended to eat meals of local meat (often barbecued by the pool), salads, fruit and cheeses outside, either in the shade of the large walnut tree on the patio, outside the kitchen to the side of the villa or on the outside dining area, by the patio doors which opens to the rear lawn and gardens.
There are two main sleeping areas:
- one upstairs (master double bedroom, three single rooms and a bathroom) which my wife & I and the kids use)
- a second downstairs (a mini suite) with a double room and one single bed / cot area and bathroom (which friends or parents have used).
There is also a separate shower room and loo downstairs.
The grounds around the property are stunningly beautiful and the large, outside swimming pool, shaded areas, sun-loungers and BBQ have always suited our purposes ideally. This place is rural with the surrounding fields of olive, orange, lemon & fig trees complementing the traditional house and 'insulating' one from neighbours and noise. The casero Antonio and his wife, Mari-Carmen, who live in a separate house in the grounds are around to help with some house-keeping and to tend the finca, but are lovely people & never intrusive.
Location: Timoteo is about 20 mins drive from Seville Airport and around 30 - 40 mins drive into Seville city centre which is one of the most stunning cities in the world. Closer by is Mairena del Alcor, a small town where small restaurants, supermarkets and other local services are to be found.
As we have been to Heurta Timoteo twice already and plan to go again in 2012, we clearly rate the place as a great holiday spot. The property is not luxuriously appointed, but it is very comfortable, clean and superbly located. It is ideal for families and easily large enough to share with friends or family. Sun, countryside, fresh food, wine and a pool. What more could you ask for?
