Description

The silence of a place disturbed only by the call of one of the 200 or so species of birds that live in the immediate area, the sound of flowing water from a spring, the natural richness of the myriad botanical species in the surrounding woodland and walks along the pathways of over 100 acres which comprise the land on which this property stands are just some of the reasons for staying at this unique hotel.

The 12 bedroomed property is contained in a 15th century monastery which had been abandoned for almost 150 years. The Carthusian monastery of Cazalla de la Sierra is built on a natural plateau surrounded by walls and a 30 metre cliff facing east. It has one of the most beautiful views of the Sierra Morena, especially at sunrise. All rooms are fully equipped and carefully decorated with works by visiting artists. The hotel also provides a swimming pool and a natural spring-water pool, as well as an Art Gallery and guided tour through the Monastery.

The owner, Carmen Ladrón de Guevara y Bracho, had to overcome many obstacles and difficulties before she realised her dream of renovating this historic site, and converting it into a hotel and a Centre for Contemporary Art and Culture. The authorities have now officially declared the property a National Monument, and Carmen Ladrón de Guevara has obtained international recognition and awards for her work and and her entrepreneurial spirit.

Artists and thinkers are welcomed and the Centre of Contemporary Culture includes an art gallery with paintings by the resident artists, many of which can be acquired by visitors, and a permanent collection of Spanish and Latin American art.

  3. Alcazar

Built on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville is heir to a rich Arab legacy, and to the condition of being a prosperous trading port with the Americas.
Every street and square that makes up the historic quarter of the Andalusian capital bursts with joy and bustle. This area has an interesting collection of historic buildings, many of which have been declared World Heritage Sites, and also contains colourful districts with great popular flavour, such as Triana and La Macarena.

Seville is a remarkable southern business and service centre, having many hotel beds distributed all over the city allowing the visitor to discover the many attractions the city holds. Museums, arts centres, theme parks, cinemas, theatres, and banquet halls are only a few of the endless possibilities that a great city like Seville affords. And the numerous terraces, pubs and bars should not be forgotten because they are where one of the most deeply-rooted of all traditions of the city is carried out: the “tapeo”.

Another good excuse to come to the Sevillian capital are the festivals. The celebrations of Easter Week and Feria de Abril (the April Fair), which have been declared of National Tourist Interest, reflect the devotion and folklore of the people of Seville, always open and friendly to visitors. But Seville's appeal does not end there, as the city is also the starting point for the many cultural routes the province offers, such as the Roman Bética Route or the Washington Irving route.

The visitor will also discover the immense natural wealth of this region, which sits halfway between two continents, in natural treasures such as the Dońana Nature Reserve, declared a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, and the Sierra Norte Nature Reserve.

They will be the ideal setting for practising outdoor sports, including hiking, horse riding, and cycling routes. If, on the other hand, golf is your sport of choice, then you will be glad to know that Seville has four excellent golf courses in its vicinity.
