Historic villa with big pool & garden in Andalucia
Ecija, Andalusia, Spain
Additional Location Information
Inland Andalucia is the real Spain! Away from the busy coastal developments, discover the true heart of this fascinating province and its truly unique heritage.
Here was the place where, for once, the three major faiths were living together in harmony during a few short centuries.The memory of Al-Andalus can be seen in its architecture, heard in its vibrant flamenco music, tasted in its local cuisine and wines...
The best times to visit are spring, when orange trees are in bloom and autumn when the heat of the summer has abated. Festivals are a year round affair, from Carnival to Semana Santa to Seville Feria to pilgrimages and horse fairs. Any kind of celebration is a good excuse to throw a party : the most solemn procession leader will be seen enjoying drinks and tapas with his friends and family in a bar shortly after the event!
You will be able to visit the most important sights of Andalusia (the great Mosque of Cordoba, the Alcazar Palace in Seville, and the Alhambra in Granada) or wander about Ecija and discover its many palaces, convents and churches.
The great mosque of Cordoba, a marvel of medieval Islamic architecture, is only one of the attractions of this historic city. The small streets of the "Juderia", the archeological site of Medinat-al Zahara, the medieval fortress of Almodovar del Rio are all fascinating sites to be discovered from Ecija.(50km on the A4 motorway)
The capital of Andalucia, Sevilla has charmed its visitors since Carmen seduced Don José in front of the Tobacco Factory (now the University). The real Don Juan himself was a local celebrity and the hosteleria where he had dinner is still open for service. The cathedral and its tower "La Giralda", the royal palaces of the Alcazar and their splendid gardens, the barrio Santa Cruz with its tapas bars are all less than an hour from Ecija. (80kms on A4 motorway)
Classified by Unesco as a World Heritage site, Granada is the historic site you must not miss. With the Alhambra, its sublime moorish palace, its gardens and its position at the foot of the soaring Sierra Nevada mountains, Granada makes an unforgettable excursion.(less than 2hours away on A92 motorway). Do not forget to book your ticket well ahead: on average 6000 persons will visit every day!
If you like walking, natural parks abound in the area, with marked trails over lovely hills dotted with large reservoirs( good for fishing). Toros bravos (semi wild bulls for corridas) roam the meadows of extensive haciendas and eagles can be seen circling in the cloudless blue sky. In early spring, pink flamingoes can be spotted in the "lagunas" a few miles south of Ecija.
We have maps of the principal parks in the house: Sierra de Hornachuelos, Donana bird sanctuary, Sierra Norte de Sevilla.
