Driving past the peach trees, wheat and corn fields of the Santa Iglesia estate and arriving at the gates of the old cortijo, the scenery is typical of Andalucia and stunningly beautiful in its simplicity.
The entrance to the property, like so many Spanish farmhouses, is via the central courtyard. From here there are doors into a large old barn, now fitted out with a table-tennis table, and the main doors to the property are found by the outdoor seating area. The interior of Santa Iglesia has been tastefully furnished, with paintings and antlers on the walls betraying its hunting lodge past. There are two sitting rooms, the smaller of which adjoins the dining room. Four of the five bedrooms are upstairs, and a further staircase leads up to a roof terrace, from where there are lovely far reaching views.
In the palm filled garden there is an attractive pergola close to the pool, providing a shady area for outdoor dining. From the enclosed garden a door leads out to the extensive grounds of the estate and to a lake surrounded by roses, where guests can relax, enjoy the peace and quiet and admire the view across fields towards Seville.
