It has been said that it is given to few to create a paradise - however at this outstanding home one could be forgiven for believing this had been achieved. This tucked away high in the Sierra Morena north of Seville, at first sight resembles a small white, walled village. It is built much as a traditional cortijo, the huge main gates giving on to a tiled courtyard lined with massive and ancient olive jars. Leading off this are a series of flower-strewn terraces heavy at night with the scent of lavender, mimosa, rose and jasmine. It is incredibly peaceful, the silence disturbed only by the distant tinkling of sheep bells or the cooing of doves on a bedroom roof.

Built in the 16th Century, this finca was once at the heart of a large estate and even now is surrounded by a thousand acres of its own olive trees. Abandoned during the Civil War it has now been converted and renovated by the artistry and imagination of the present owner. It provides cool, soothing and excitingly luxurious accommodation in a style all its own - a mixture unifying Moorish, Spanish and English. White-washed walls feature as do Moorish archways, stunning tiles and wonderful fabrics and artefacts collected from far and wide.

It is little wonder this glorious property has been featured in numerous magazines - and it is to our delight that you are able to rent this exceptional home. The family still live in the main house in the cortijo, but very separately from the guest accommodation wings, which have their own vast drawing room, suites and terraces. Cobbled paths lead to olive groves and oak forests, to a tennis court and to the walled swimming-pool garden which has a tented seating area for those seeking the shade and a vine covered terrace perfect for lunch. (The table here can double as a ping pong table!) There is much to explore, either on foot or on horse, in the wooded, rolling Andalucian countryside with its lakes and waterfalls ideal for day outings, picnics and river swimming. The vibrant local town has numerous bars and restaurants and frequently stages the colourful and noisy fiestas so beloved by the Spanish. In the summer there is a Romeria (a pilgrimage made either on foot or horseback) and other fiestas in the otherwise sleepy, traditional, white Andalucian villages which dot the surrounding hills.

This is a haven for those seeking tranquillity - but is also ideal for family parties, groups of friends or for celebrating a special occasion such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary. With advance notice, Painting, Spanish and Tennis lessons can be arranged as well as Yoga, Massage and Aromatherapy treatments. The ancient city of Seville, which is two hours from Madrid by fast train) is only 1 hour away and Cordoba 1 hour 30 minutes.

Price: Ranging from £12,000 - £15,000+ per week, depending upon number of guests, season and length of let.
