A beautiful holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful week in this villa. We are a family with 4 children and had a fantastic time in the pool, which was kept in excellent condition by the caretaker.

The description of the villa does not do it justice, it was extremely spacious, the showers/bathrooms were exceptional with plenty of hot water and the day bed a massive hit with the children. Possibly the biggest bonus is the housekeeper who comes every day to clean and do beds. Also the fresh orange juice is out of this world.

Be warned there is little to do, no TV, no internet for us this was a bonus as that meant a lot of family time.

The airport is just down the road, the local towns have everything you need, Seville is 20mins drive and best of all proper sunshine.

All in all a perfect get away, will certainly be returning sometime soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sally, for the very kind evaluation. Our aim was always to keep the Huerta Timoteo generous but simple and authentic. For example, good shutters and thick walls instead of air conditioning. By the way - one might get TV: our caretaker will be happy to lend his second TV unit. And SAT is installed. But we quickly found out, no TV in summer vacation makes much better mood. Exactly what you told us now. Peter

Rustic hideaway perfect for relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

We were coming to Spain for the wedding of a friend and wanted to take a few extra days to get some sunshine and catch up on some R and R. This place was ideal, not too far from the airport and nestled amoungst orange and olive trees with a lovely cooling swimming pool. The house keeper was there to greet us on arrival and everything was as described on these pages. We were quickly made to feel welcome despite our appalling Spanish we were able to communicate what we needed etc. She came every day to clean the house which made us feel very lazy but spoilt, she even did some washing for us which was above and beyond the call of duty. Someone also put out fresh oranges for us most mornings which really was a joy. Fresh orange juice everyday... delicious.

The house was as described (fairly comprehensive description from the owner), with plenty of room for 6 of us. Everything was tidy and clean. Towels and bed linen were all supplied. Plenty of hot water for showers etc, beds were possibly a little hard but we weren't too worried as much of the day was spent sleeping by the pool! The top floor was a little warm at night - to be fair it was 40 degrees outside but fans were supplied which made quite a difference. My only real negative (if you can call it that) is that a couple of the sun loungers were a little past their prime. Not a problem if there are only four of you but a couple of us ended up lying on the floor by the pool but I can't really say it was a hardship!

We were given very good notes on what to see and do around the villa, I would recommend a trip to Carmona and Seville. The local town is difficult to negotiate and we ended up not eating there. This may just have been bad planning our part. Seville is amazing and Carmona is a must see. We ended up eating out in Carmona for most nights as the restaurants are lovely and sitting out on the balcony at the Parador is breathtaking. I was impressed by how much the owner had thought about what the guests might like and any questions we might have had were answered in the extensive notes. Brilliantly organised.

I would definitely recommend this property to other people, we had such a lovely time. It really was such a treat to lie by the pool - it was clear that a lot of effort went into keeping the place clean and tidy. Everyone was very friendly and the house was clean and well stocked. A good find, we would definitely stay again.

Fantastic Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

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?

Ferien in einem kleinem Herrenhaus

  • 5 of 5

Lieber Vermieter,

wie auch beim ersten Mal, hat uns der Urlaub in Ihrem wunderschönem Haus sehr gut gefallen. Der Garten und der Pool sind einfach traumhaft. Marie Carmen und Familie haben uns, wie immer, bestens unterstützt und das tägliche Reinigen und Abwaschen zuverlässig abgenommen. Unsere Wünsche wurden alle prompt erfüllt. Ihr Haus hat den Charme eines kleinen älteren Herrenhauses, besonders das große Esszimmer für 10 Personen und das großzügige Wohnzimmer mit Kamin haben es uns angetan. Für Tierfreunde gibt es, wenn gewünscht, auch Kontakt zu Hunden und Katzen. Wieder einmal ein wunderschöner Urlaub inmitten einer riesigen Olivenplantage mit einer Zufahrt mit blühenden Olianderbäumen. Vielen Dank, wir kommen nächstes Jahr wieder. Die Schleswig Holsteiner

Wir können nur warnen

  • 1 of 5

Wir können nur vor diesem Angebot & Vermieter warnen. Wir hatten das Haus auf Drängen des Anbieters voll im Voraus bezahlt. Als wir dort ankamen, waren wir abgestoßen von dem Zustand des Hauses: die Küche uralt und schmuddelig, die Betten desgleichen. Bettlaken waren alt und abgenutzt. Zwar wurde uns der Kauf neuer Bettlaken angeboten, doch wenn die Matratzen uralt sind, hilft das auch nur bedingt. Wir sind deshalb nicht in dem für eine Woche gebuchten Haus geblieben, sondern haben uns sofort ein anderes Quartier gesucht. Der Vermieter hat uns allerdings trotz mehrfacher Aufforderung keinerlei Rückzahlung gemacht. Außerdem abschreckend: Obwohl sicherlich ursprünglich idylisch gelegen, ist Huerta Timoteo im engeren Umland von Sevilla gelegen. Die nahegelegen Landstraße ist vierspurig ausgebaut und der Verkehrslärm deutlich zu hören ...

Owner's Response: Wir nehmen zu den Vorwürfen des Herrn Frank Stelung : "Küche etc. uralt: Das Haus wurde in den Jahren 1989 bis 1991 zur Gänze stark umgebaut und renoviert. Das Haus unserer Angestellten + Garage und Lager vollständig neu gebaut. "alte Matratzen": Insofern sind die Matratzen wie der Umbau etwa 20 Jahre alt - bei einer jährlichen Benutzung von rund 18 Wochen kommt man auf eine Nutzung von 7 Jahren; kein Grund zur Erneuerung. "Bettwäsche kaufen ": Die Wäsche wird regelmäßig durchgesehen und erneuert. Unsere Mari-Carmen hatte neue noch originalverpackte Wäsche angeboten; kein Anlass für einen Kauf. "Landstraße" Das Haus liegt inmitten unserer 8ha-Olivenpflanzung - gute 200 Meter von der neuen Umgehungs-Straße entfernt. (S, GoogleEarth) Sämtliche Schlafräume liegen auf der der Straße abgewandten Seite; da ist das gelegentliche PKW-Rauschen kaum zu vernehmen. Generell ist zu der schlechten Beurteilung zu sagen : Herr Frank traf am Montag, 18.April '11 ein und machte auf unsere Leute den Eindruck, dass man auf keinen Fall die vereinbarte Woche antreten wollte. Die Besucher hatten die Woche davor eine Rundreise bei herrlichem Frühsommerwetter unternommen. ( Wir selbst waren in dieser Woche auf der Finca bei täglich wolkenlosen 28° C wegen der Überwachung der jährlich erforderlichen Malerarbeiten) Für die Semana Santa - die Vor-Osterwoche - waren leider schwere Regenfälle angesagt, was dazu führte, dass sogar - erstmals seit 1933 - die große Osterprozession buchstäblich in's Wasser fiel. Es wurden 80 Liter Regen gemessen; äußerst ungewöhnlich für diese Jahreszeit. Für unsere Angestellten war dies der Grund für die Ablehnung. Wir können uns den Frust angesichts der vorhergesagten Wetterlage gut vorstellen; aber verantwortlich für den Platzregen können wir nicht sein.
