We had a very enjoyable week at the Cortijo. It is an ideal house for a large mixed age party with plenty of space for reading, swimming, sun bathing, good (and very cheap) local food and wine shopping and ideally located for sight seeing in Seville and Cordoba. Everyone loved the pool and the kitchen is well equipped
We have just returned from a weeks stay and had a brilliant time. We were a group of girls who spent most of our time using the pool. There was ample room in the house for us all with good wifi coverage There is a supermarket in the town that has a delivery service, which we organised for our arrival day, it arrived before us and it was all put in the fridge etc for us. We had such a wonderful time, we would definitely return in the future and would highly recommend.
Hi Theresa, thanks for all your help during the booking process and arranging a coach to Sevilla city for the evening. Being a large family group of adults and children, the cortijo offered more than enough space inside and out. The children seemed to occupy themselves in the pool and games room giving us adults time to relax. The spacious property meant that we were able to always find quiet areas if required. The kitchen was really well equipped and the cooks we booked for the one evening made a great paella. Thanks once again and would strongly recommend
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this beautiful Cortijo. I spent just short of a week enjoying the lovely space and great facilities, it is a very relaxing location with beautiful views. I felt very welcomed by the family and I would highly recommend staying in the spacious and breathtaking place. A huge thankyou to Theresa, Roger and your two boys for sharing your gorgeous home with me and making me feel so welcome. x
We ran a corporate offsite for ten people for a week at the Cortijo and it was a great success.
The house has lots of living rooms and communal spaces for people to meet, work and talk. And sit around the pool!
Wifi was pretty reliable too, which is key for corporate events.
Theresa could not have been more helpful, organising a welcome meal, daily cleaning, a paella evening and restaurants for us.

Hi Theresa and Roger
Thorougly enjoyed our family time at the Cortijo this being our second consecutive year visit. Everyone enjoyed inside using wi-fi reading or playing games whilst others chilled out on the patios in and around the pool.
The whole experience was relaxing and thank you making us feel so welcome again.
Temperatures in the low 30's and visiting Carmona and surrounding areas was of interest before returning for early evening drinks etc.
Thank you for making our holiday experience so enjoyable and your wecome throughout.
I stayed at the Cortijo with a group of 13 friends (all of us in our mid-20s) in June 2015 - this was actually our second visit as we had stayed previously in 2012. That holiday had been a huge success and when the idea of going back to the Cortijo was mooted this year everyone got on board very quickly.
The house itself is very large and fully equipped with a large kitchen, large living area and too many bedrooms to keep track of. The weather was very warm while we were there and while air conditioning units are available in each bedroom (at an extra charge per unit of power used) and in many of the communal rooms we never needed to use them as the house remains very cool inside.
The house is set in beautiful gardens with orange trees in the fields next door and the pool area is particularly great - plentiful sunloungers and cushions, a large dining space, a large shaded area and a large bbq and a "hut" where food can be prepared.
I corresponded mainly with Theresa during the booking process and she was always very prompt in her replies and extremely accommodating of our requests. She helpfully gave us the website of a local supermarket from which we could order a food delivery and also booked a coach to pick us up and drop us at Seville Airport. Additionally I had asked Theresa if we could arrive a few hours earlier than usual and she said that this was fine, although we might have to relax by the pool for a time while housekeeping finished (this sounded good to us!). In fact when we arrived housekeeping had already finished in time for our arrival and Roger was there to greet us with his sons and we could get into the house straight away - this was very much appreciated!
We stayed at the Cortijo for five days and (as happened last time) never left the house and grounds because everything we wanted was there! If you do want to go in to Seville then I understand from Roger that you can get a train straight to Seville from Lora del Rio (about a mile from the house).
In short this was another fantastic holiday and I cannot recommend the Cortijo (and Theresa and Roger) highly enough - we hope to come back again!
