Our stay in this lovely Roman villa of a house set as it is in its own estate of chestnut ,cork and ancient olive woods was an extremely spoiling experience. The house with its enchanting inner courtyard ,terraces and battlements was the perfect setting for our family holiday. Everything is provided in luxurious tasteful abundance from soft towels to a drawing room with stylish antique furniture and huge log burning stove.The bedrooms were beyond expectation -deeply comfy sinking into beds with huge spacious en suites. The swimming pool ,terraces and especially the woods were a favourite with all 3 generations in our party. The local area is so beautiful (as are the views of distant lakes from the house.) the local townis full of character and has everything you could ask for-fine dining,local markets great walks etc etc
I stayed here with a group of friends and had a fantastic stay. The location is a stones throw from the charming town of Aracena. This town has lovely restaurants and cafes as well as supermarkets and other amenities.
At the house you are perched on a hillside overlooking a lushes green valley, it is fantastically quiet and serene. The pool is also sited to overlook this landscape and is great. This is where we spent most of our time!
The house is beautiful and has a real homely feel unlike so many other sparse lifeless villas or houses I have stayed in. It provided every possible amenity you might need and was spotless.
This place is a real treat and I will definitely be coming back!
El Tornero is in my view the perfect holiday destination - the setting is stunning, with gorgeous views of the surrounding Andalucian landscape (sunsets are epic!). The house is gorgeous - so tastefully done and with all the luxuries you could hope for - beautiful terrace where we had lots of long lunches, luxurious bedrooms with seriously comfy beds, a games room, a beautiful courtyard where we played loads of table tennis, and that pool! Aracena is also a great local town - very unspoilt and authentically Spanish - with cobbled streets, white washed houses and loads of great tapas bars. Wish I could go every year!
When you arrive you feel like you have come to your very own Spanish home. Beautifully decorated with a homely feel you instantly relax into your stay.
Everything is so convenient. A town a very short drive or a 20-30 min walk away, a supermarket to get everything you need to hold up at your new home and Seville only an hour away you can do as you wish.
We did a combination of holding up and visiting the local town for tapas, drinks and a walk round the castle. There are sports facilities and great running routs in the area for any active types and cafes and bars a plenty for those who are looking for a total unwind.
I have stayed twice now and the only bad thing about this place is having to leave. Friends or families, young or not so young are guaranteed to find what ever it is that they are traveling to Spain for!!
We immediately felt at home here as it is a family home.
All the rooms are very spacious and filled with family touches that make one feel totally at ease.
The outside seems to go on forever and there is always somewhere new and different to sit for a drink or some food, while the saltwater pool is huge and just perfect.
You could be miles away from anywhere whereas Aracena is but a short distance away.
Very relaxing and well worth the drive from the airport.
