ndalusia, the seductive southernmost region of Spain, is blessed with one of the most attractive cities in the country. Seville, the historic and cultural capital of Andalusia, is the embodiment of the best Spain has to offer. Glorious sunshine and cobalt-blue skies for much of the year turn exploring the city into an exhilarating experience. Whether you are strolling through the winding cobbled lanes of the atmospheric Santa Cruz quarter, walking along the banks of the Guadalquivir River or admiring the breathtakingly ornate churches that dominate Seville’s many hidden squares, it is immediately clear why so many fall in love with the city. This magnificent city boasts powerful displays of extravagant Mudéjar architecture, which includes exceptional historic buildings and exquisite palaces. White-washed streets lined with orange trees and flower-bedecked balconies, fiery flamenco, bullfighting, fantastic fiestas, stylish shops and tapas galore complete the picture. Only ten minutes from Seville’s airport lies this unique opportunity to acquire an authentic 18th-century Andalusian hacienda. Boasting splendid views of the countryside, the superior property is surrounded by 50 hectares of land. The gorgeously traditional estate grows olives and oranges on a commercial scale. This is a country estate of rare beauty and architectural integrity. Tastefully restored and converted, it strikes a balance between rustic charm and classic sophistication. The luxury estate retains many of the home’s original features, including wooden beams, arched doorways and passageways, terracotta floors, vaulted ceilings and wrought iron elements. A gracious home for grand entertainment as well as serene family living, the olive estate offers ten bedrooms, a countrystyle kitchen, plus several imposing and informal living and dining areas. It features a stunning courtyard, private garden and pool. The unique property would lend itself to that special boutique hotel, but would be just as perfect as a magnificent family home. This is Andalusia at its finest. Price: Upon request. CONTACT
