“Pros and cons”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had 10days in June at the villa and our feelings are mixed. The garden, the pool and the setting is very nice. The cottage is well looked after and the kitchen is very nice and practical. It is also very quiet and peaceful. Saying this some things make it to perspective. As there is only a small generator and work mainly with solar panels. there is no oven or air con or anything above 1500wt. Also the shower in the bathroom is just a head above the bath and there is almost no pressure. The outside shower was actually better, and was nice with the hot weather. The other thing that we found very annoying was the flies. As there are horses around, big black flies come and pest you all the time you are lying by the pool and try to relax. They just come and attack you during your meal also and just when you think you can enjoy the cool evening outside, mosquitos come to devour you! It's nothing that the owner can do really, it's just what come with nature and the setting! We went few times to the beach near by to actually get away from all those little insects! So as we said its nice but you should expect nothing more than a little cottage in an isolate part of Spain with a pool....

I'm so sad to hear and read tis review. On the description of the house it's indicated we have solar pannles, and there's a limit of 1500 wattss use for any electrical device, Never we had a complaint about this and we advise it.
We dont say we have oven nor air conditioned, so what to expect?
Andrew and his wife booked one night before we can let them the house, and I founf for them and pay a 4 star hotel in Sevilla including breakfast. I was phoning them some times to see if they were fine, and always they were very satisfieds, I don't really understand their review, probably they were wrong choosing the place, It can happen, but it's not our fault. We were working hard to give pleasure to our guest. I'm so sorry if they were not satisfieds.

“Delightful oasis!”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our stay at El Montecillo was an absolute delight right from initial contact with Juan through to our departure. The house is very comfortably furnished and very well equipped, and the pool is a good size.

Juan has created a gorgeous garden with a wide variety of trees, lovely wildflowers and wildlife - with cleared paths to allow one to explore and enjoy all the different vistas. I think we saw a wider variety of birds in the garden and close to the house than we did on our excursions to a couple of the information centres in Donana National Park! And of course the usual geckos, lizards and rabbits, with tadpoles, frogs and grass snakes in or by the pond.

Outside the property, there are pleasant walks along the tracks where you are just as likely to encounter carts pulled by horses, mules or oxen as cars.

Over the years we have stayed in a lot of very nice self-catering accommodation around the world and without doubt El Montecillo is the most comfortable and has the loveliest setting. Juan also deserves huge thanks for all his help and consideration in making sure we had the best possible experience.

Simon and Liz, thank you very much for your nice and excelent review.
I must say for me is a pleasure to share the property with guest loving the nature.
I was once in the house to clean uo the swimming poll and I found Liz painting in the middle of a meadow, and really she looked part of the picture.
Simon was reading peacefully in the pool area.
They leave the house, very tidy and clean, as if it were their house.
Thank you again and you will be always welcomes.

“Peaceful location”
Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A well equipped place with pool. In its own gardens. Lovely sunrise and sunsets and lots of birds to watch in the garden and around in the National Park.
Juan the owner is very helpful. The weather was changing during our visit and we lit the log burning fire which felt very cosy.
It is in a remote location but close enough to the village if you need anything. You will need to study the directions which Juan sends carefully to find it.
We enjoyed our stay and hope to return at a different time of the year to get a different experience.

“Tranquil and fragrant haven”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house is well laid out, light, airy & clean - fans kept us cool at night. The setting is relaxing and the gardens delightful - jasmine was in bloom & we picked grapes and figs...a real treat! Pool was perfect temp and fab size. Evenings spent in candle light on terraces under starlit sky were idyllic & romantic. Juan is a true gent - going above & beyond to make our stay comfortable & memorable. Loved it - will return! 7 days not enough...

“Peace & Tranquility at its best”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just got back after a week away in the beautiful Seville. El Montecillo was the perfect place for us as we wanted a quiet, relaxing break in the sun. The Cottage was stunning! Surrounded by natural park the views were outstanding & with rare birds all around us and beautiful sunsets every evening we were in heaven! The cottage provided us with comfortable accommodation and a lovely large clean swimming pool to cool down in. Juan was the perfect host who greeted us with a cold beer on arrival & gave us advise on the local area. He also recommended some nice places to eat, that were very cheap but served amazing food!! We would love to return sometime and would highly recommend this place to our Friends and family. Thanks again Juan! :)

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A spectacular house and garden. Lots of room inside (tastefully decorated) and outside we particularly liked the verandas front and rear. Lovely swimming pool and plenty of stunning bird life- white storks and black kites overhead and bee-eaters and hoopoes regularly in the garden. We enjoyed a great day in Donana and would recommend using a personal guide (if you want to see to lots of birds) which we were able to book previously through the internet. The owner Juan is well organised, very friendly and helpful. We found the local village of Villamanrique full of charm and character.
