Location and Description:
This Andalusian Cortijo is located in Seville in Andalusia at the south of Spain. It is set in the heart of the Sierra Norte, just 45 minutes from Seville and only 5 minutes to the village of El Real de la Jara.
The cortijo is set in 250 hectares of forest land. The forest creates a stunning natural setting and you also feel the history going back to the Roman and Moorish times.
The current owner of this cortijo has preserved the history of it. Never before have we seen a restauration project done with so much care and love. The cortijo was completely renovated in 1978 respecting all antique details of the old existing property (the foundations might even be built in the Moorish times) and using reclaimed building mateials of old Haciendas and Monasteries. The staircase is coming from a monastery and is at least 300 years old.
The 250 Ha land has gentle rolling hills mainly Stone Oak and cork trees, providing and ideal environment for pigs, cows and wild life as deers. Ideal setting to enjoy holidays with family or Friends. The estate borders a small river and has ancient wells.
