If you take it, I recommend you to go to the Castle of The Guards (Castillo de las Guardas) and visit its natural animal reserve. You can visit everyday from 10 a.m. to 17 p.m and can stay in the park until 18.30h. After the reserve, you can keep going and arrive to Aracena.

A perfect home for family

  • 5 of 5

We have a large group to travel in Andalucia during a 1 week vacation, therefore I think an apartment is the most suitable option because we can all live like a family and also share the cost. However, choosing an apartment has risks over hotel because you could not have too much information and critiques about it.

Luckily we had a right choice. This apartment is exactly like the photos show - very clean, neat, and with comfortable beddings and very good furnitures. The owner Juan Luis is such a kind person, who had showed a very warm attitude since the beginning of the communication. He gave us such detailed introductions about everything in Sevilla regarding food, drinks, entertainment and travel, which we used all the time when we were in Sevilla. His local knowledge helped us a lot to get the best things we wanted in Sevilla in such a short time. I can say we dumped our lonely planet completely. No guide book can be better than his introduction about the city.

The house is big enough for 7 to 8 people. If you are a group of friends or family, it is the best choice. You have your private space and a large shared space for doing things together. The location is in a small village near Sevilla. But unfortunately we had not got enough time to enjoy the village. It is only 20 minutes by car to Sevilla city. If you drive a car, don't forget to follow the owner's instruction for the free car parking in the city. We did not follow it and paid a huge parking fee in a public parking lot.

I highly recommend this apartment for family or friends. Sevilla is a great city for exploring more.

Great family apartment

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, spacious apartment incredibly clean with all the essentials needed for a relaxing holiday. We didn't want a resort holiday with the children so this was ideal with access to a local pool and a 25 minutes drive into Seville which we did every second day.With not a tourist in sight it was safe to let the children wander each morning to buy breakfast in the local shops. And with Juan's wonderful insights into the do's and don'ts of Seville I would highly recommend this accomodation as a place to stay.

Just Great!

  • 5 of 5

"This is a lovely villa in a quiet location, at just the right distance from Seville. The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful, beyond what I would have expected!"

The house has a lovely atmosphere which makes it very relaxing. I would highly recommend this property to all who would like to stay near Seville. This location is quite convenient as a base for car trips to Cordoba, Huelva, Cadiz, etc. A car is necessary.

A good base for exploring Seville and around

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for a fortnight, to be within easy driving range of Seville.

The house is relatively modern, situated in a sleepy, linear village with a smattering of shops and eateries along a main road. The three bedrooms are large with plenty of storage. It was helpful to have two bathrooms. Showers worked efficiently and there was always plenty of hot water at good pressure. The open plan living / dining area room had two settees to seat six people comfortably and a table and chairs for six. The kitchen has a four ring halogen hob and oven. There is a good sized fridge / freezer, as well as a full sized-dishwasher. All the appliances we used worked well although had seen better days. There could have been more crockery, glassware and cutlery to use the dishwasher more efficiently. The wi-fi was very effective. Externally we frequently sat out on the upper terrace which, although it overlooked other properties, at least received afternoon sun. We did not make any use of the hot tub or the lower terrace, which was rather cramped and featureless.

Las Pajanosas is a residential community, so expect some noise from neighbours. You can park your car right outside the front door which is handy when you arrive loaded with cases or shopping. The area in front of the house is scruffy, with plenty of litter strewn across it.

Seville is about a 20 minute drive away. Other places we enjoyed visiting included Aracena, Carmona and Italica.

Thanks to the owner, Juan Luis who is well-meaning and responsive. He sought to resolve minor issues quickly, via contact by texts and email.

Owner's Response: Dear Couple, Thank you for your extend comments. I am glad to know that you have appreciate somethings from this beautiful house. I am going to buy more crockery and glassware and cutlery to use the dishwahser more efficiently. The City Council is preparing the land in front of the House to build a park and that is why what appears so scruffy with litter strewn across it. in a few days it will looks much better for sure. Thank you again for everything. I am glad also to know that you have enjoyed the new terrace up at the bedrooms. I have just built it for you to enjoy the sun in the evening. As you have seeen, i have just put plenty of plants arround to increase the privacy. it will take some time for them to grow up. Best regards, Juan Luis

At 12 miles from Seville Centre, Small villa new Highway A-66. As it is new, there are not the usual traffic problems from other parts of the city. The town has only 980 persons so it is very litle and quiet, although has all the services anyone might need. Even a golf court of 18 holes really cheap. From Las Pajanosas you can eassily go to Seville centre in just 15 minutes (i will tell you where to park with no problem and free parking), you can visit Cordoba, Granada, Arcos, jerez, Cadiz and many other places that i will recommend you. Restaurants, tapas bar, night places and so on, i will give you plenty information about all these. you can park the car in front of the house without any problem. In front of the house there is just countryside so no noise will disturb or bother you. Las Pajanosas is very well-known for its gastronomy. Seven¡ ¡¡ restaurants in town. Two supermarkets, pharmacy, medical care, bank, Tourist office, and so on.

Other Activities: paddle and golf, horse ridding

Golf: Only at just 1 km from the house, there is a golf court with18 holes with a very good price. You can see more details in

The beaches of the Costa de la Luz are within one hour driving.

Very interesting to go to Aracena and visit its Grottes (caves), castle, and the town. Visit El castillo de las Guardas (animal reserve) and the town of Rio Tinto (visit its mines and museum). Also, the town of Zufre, Italica (romans) and its restaurants. I will provide plenty information of all these for you to enjoy your staying as much as possible.
