Property was extremely difficult to access-directions were poor. After being lost for one hour because directions were poor, the road leading up to house almost ruined the bottom of our car. The house was minimal at most;uncomfortable furniture,refrigerator unplugged,bathrooms lacking toilet paper,no soap and having not enough towels for us. It was obvious the owner was not accustomed to having guests. I could write much more but it’s enough to say I would not recommend this place to stay unless many changes made. Also cooking gas not connected and the house was not clean. The stone stairs had no railing to hold on to and it was a safety issue at all times.
Definitely not comfortable.
Answer to the allegations:
Befor the arrival on our manor the visitors stayed overnight on their road trip through Spain in holiday apartments or hotels.
Obviously they also expected our offer with luxury hotel amenities and immediately got into angry discussions with our employees because of excessive claims:
They demanded the villa was to be cleaned daily with a vacuum cleaner – that’s 240 sq. meters of Cotto floors - daily! Cotto floors are wiped damp upon need.
Should be changed t w i c e a day – that would be for 4 guests in 4 days : 32 towels, + Pool towels + shower towels. At this point also should be considered the price/day/person of 41 Euros
Toilet paper, Soap:
Our Antonio showed the place of the spare rolls. Soap is usually taken care of by our guests themselves – but also enough soap in the bathroom cabinet on request.
Mari-Carmen had accidentally not plugged in before the arrival of our guests. Unfortunately, the guests did not ask how the propane gas works for the stove.
It was not said what could have been missing.
Our guest had a prepared map on hand for the continuous 8,3 km of the highway – beginning on the motorway exit and led without deviations to the 600 meters of track across the fields; not asphalted and with holes and bumps like other dirt roads with hard though uneven ground.
The complaint may also be based on the intervention of our Antonio as a guest began to destroy a swallow’s nest in an outhouse – maybe not friendly enough.
We have been renting for over 20 years – always with the same staff to guests who appreciate the tranquillity and beauty of the complex, surrounded with 80.000 sq. m. of olives and orange grove and with the huge swimming pool of 100 sq.m.
But we are not a hotel !
A beautiful holiday villa
We spent a beautiful week in this villa. We are a family with 4 children and had a fantastic time in the pool, which was kept in excellent condition by the caretaker.
The description of the villa does not do it justice, it was extremely spacious, the showers/bathrooms were exceptional with plenty of hot water and the day bed a massive hit with the children. Possibly the biggest bonus is the housekeeper who comes every day to clean and do beds. Also the fresh orange juice is out of this world.
Be warned there is little to do, no TV, no internet for us this was a bonus as that meant a lot of family time.
The airport is just down the road, the local towns have everything you need, Seville is 20mins drive and best of all proper sunshine.
All in all a perfect get away, will certainly be returning sometime soon.
Thank you, Sally, for the very kind evaluation.
Our aim was always to keep the Huerta Timoteo generous but simple and authentic.
For example, good shutters and thick walls instead of air conditioning.
By the way - one might get TV: our caretaker will be happy to lend his second TV unit.
And SAT is installed.
But we quickly found out, no TV in summer vacation makes much better mood.
Exactly what you told us now.
Rustic hideaway perfect for relaxing break
We were coming to Spain for the wedding of a friend and wanted to take a few extra days to get some sunshine and catch up on some R and R. This place was ideal, not too far from the airport and nestled amoungst orange and olive trees with a lovely cooling swimming pool. The house keeper was there to greet us on arrival and everything was as described on these pages. We were quickly made to feel welcome despite our appalling Spanish we were able to communicate what we needed etc. She came every day to clean the house which made us feel very lazy but spoilt, she even did some washing for us which was above and beyond the call of duty. Someone also put out fresh oranges for us most mornings which really was a joy. Fresh orange juice everyday... delicious.
The house was as described (fairly comprehensive description from the owner), with plenty of room for 6 of us. Everything was tidy and clean. Towels and bed linen were all supplied. Plenty of hot water for showers etc, beds were possibly a little hard but we weren't too worried as much of the day was spent sleeping by the pool! The top floor was a little warm at night - to be fair it was 40 degrees outside but fans were supplied which made quite a difference. My only real negative (if you can call it that) is that a couple of the sun loungers were a little past their prime. Not a problem if there are only four of you but a couple of us ended up lying on the floor by the pool but I can't really say it was a hardship!
We were given very good notes on what to see and do around the villa, I would recommend a trip to Carmona and Seville. The local town is difficult to negotiate and we ended up not eating there. This may just have been bad planning our part. Seville is amazing and Carmona is a must see. We ended up eating out in Carmona for most nights as the restaurants are lovely and sitting out on the balcony at the Parador is breathtaking. I was impressed by how much the owner had thought about what the guests might like and any questions we might have had were answered in the extensive notes. Brilliantly organised.
I would definitely recommend this property to other people, we had such a lovely time. It really was such a treat to lie by the pool - it was clear that a lot of effort went into keeping the place clean and tidy. Everyone was very friendly and the house was clean and well stocked. A good find, we would definitely stay again.
Schöne Tage auf der Finca
Bereits zum fünften Mal in Folge waren wir dieses Jahr Mitte bis Ende August in der Finca. Wir sind eine Familie mit drei Kindern zwischen drei und neun. Das Haus ist sauber und mit allen wichtigen Dingen des Haushaltes eingerichtet. Luxuriösen Schnickschnak sucht man aber vergebens. Die nahegelegene Kleinstadt Mairena bietet alles, was zum Leben benötigt wird. Wer wie wir gerne Erholung und Kultur kombinieren möchte, ist in der Finca bestens aufgehoben. Der Entspannung dient der ungewöhnlich große Pool, der in ein Pflanzenmeer von Feigen, Zitronen und Orangen eingebettet liegt, aber auch der großzügige Garten mit Rasenflächen. Die Gegend bietet neben der Weltstadt Sevilla weitere zahlreiche Sehenswürdigkeiten (Carmona, Écija usw), aber auch das Meer ist in zwei Stunden gut zu ereichen. Zum Haus gehört ein Verwalterehepaar mit einer Tochter, die zwar auf dem Geländer der Finca wohnen, aber in einem eigenen Haus in gebührenden Abstand. Für uns war ihre Anwesenheit immer beruhigend und Antonio hat uns mit so manchem Problem weitergeholfen (z.B. bei einem Totalausfall der Elektronik unseres Mietwagens). Marie-Carmen sorgt täglich (mit Ausnahme des Sonntag) für die Sauberkeit des Hauses, bezieht die Betten, wäscht das Frühstücksgeschirr usw. Die großzügige Finca ist für alle zu empfehlen, die keine Lust auf Massentourismus haben und lieber Land und Leute authentisch kennen lernen wollen. Wir haben uns immer sehr gut erholt und zugleich das gute Verhältnis zwischen und Preis und Leistung geschätzt.
Ferien in einem kleinem Herrenhaus
wie auch beim ersten Mal, hat uns der Urlaub in Ihrem wunderschönem Haus sehr gut gefallen. Der Garten und der Pool sind einfach traumhaft. Marie Carmen und Familie haben uns, wie immer, bestens unterstützt und das tägliche Reinigen und Abwaschen zuverlässig abgenommen. Unsere Wünsche wurden alle prompt erfüllt. Ihr Haus hat den Charme eines kleinen älteren Herrenhauses, besonders das große Esszimmer für 10 Personen und das großzügige Wohnzimmer mit Kamin haben es uns angetan. Für Tierfreunde gibt es, wenn gewünscht, auch Kontakt zu Hunden und Katzen. Wieder einmal ein wunderschöner Urlaub inmitten einer riesigen Olivenplantage mit einer Zufahrt mit blühenden Olianderbäumen. Vielen Dank, wir kommen nächstes Jahr wieder. Die Schleswig Holsteiner
Fantastic Family holiday
We have stayed at Heurta Timoteo twice in the last 4 years and consider it to be an ideal holiday home in a fantastic location.
The property itself is very spacious and light, with a large, airy hallway & separate lounge with an open fireplace, a fantastic dinning room (the most beautiful, rustic dining table I have ever come across), and a simple but absolutely practical, clean kitchen. We always tended to eat meals of local meat (often barbecued by the pool), salads, fruit and cheeses outside, either in the shade of the large walnut tree on the patio, outside the kitchen to the side of the villa or on the outside dining area, by the patio doors which opens to the rear lawn and gardens.
There are two main sleeping areas:
- one upstairs (master double bedroom, three single rooms and a bathroom) which my wife & I and the kids use)
- a second downstairs (a mini suite) with a double room and one single bed / cot area and bathroom (which friends or parents have used).
There is also a separate shower room and loo downstairs.
The grounds around the property are stunningly beautiful and the large, outside swimming pool, shaded areas, sun-loungers and BBQ have always suited our purposes ideally. This place is rural with the surrounding fields of olive, orange, lemon & fig trees complementing the traditional house and 'insulating' one from neighbours and noise. The casero Antonio and his wife, Mari-Carmen, who live in a separate house in the grounds are around to help with some house-keeping and to tend the finca, but are lovely people & never intrusive.
Location: Timoteo is about 20 mins drive from Seville Airport and around 30 - 40 mins drive into Seville city centre which is one of the most stunning cities in the world. Closer by is Mairena del Alcor, a small town where small restaurants, supermarkets and other local services are to be found.
As we have been to Heurta Timoteo twice already and plan to go again in 2012, we clearly rate the place as a great holiday spot. The property is not luxuriously appointed, but it is very comfortable, clean and superbly located. It is ideal for families and easily large enough to share with friends or family. Sun, countryside, fresh food, wine and a pool. What more could you ask for?
De boerderij ligt op 25 km buiten Sevilla, Cordoba richting, in de buurt van Carmona. Het landschap is erg groen, veel plantages zijn in de buurt. Door het enkele locatie in het midden van de plantage, ons huisje is ideaal voor rustzoekers, gezinnen met kinderen (kunnen zwemmen moet). In de schaduwrijke tuin en rond het huis zijn er veel individuele zetels, zodat je ook kan heel goed in te trekken en de mogelijke drukte in het zwembad niet luistert.
