Villas in Seville Province

The historic province of Seville attracts millions of tourists each year who come to enjoy its year-round sunshine, natural beauty, architectural wonders, and of course, world-class oranges and olive oil. Located by the Guadalquivir River which runs from the east to the west, Seville is famous for its orange and lemon groves that adorn its picturesque landscape. The whitewashed mountain villages of the Iberian peninsula are filled with the romantic scent of their blossom. Bordered by Cadiz Province, with Gibraltar to the south, Seville Province stretches across southern Spain, boasting boundless landscapes where the Moors, Romans, Phoenicians and Visigoths left behind remnants of past civilisations. Today they are seen in the religious monuments, World Heritage Sites, museums and buildings of the old towns. Direct flights are available from the UK to Seville Airport in Seville city, the main international airport serving western Andalucia.

Most visit Seville Province for its authentic Andalucian charm and ancient buildings, where the walls resonate with stories of past kingdoms and cultures. The province's cultural gem is the UNESCO World Heritage Site Royal Alcázar of Seville in the capital, with its beautiful gardens, and baroque interior, originally constructed by Moorish Muslim kings as a present to the Christian king Peter of Castile. But there is still plenty to see beyond the bustling cobbled streets of the capital. The Sierra Morena countryside, where the fertile Río Guadalquivir river lies, boasts a vast stretch of landscape and rolling hills ideal for kayaking, hiking, cycling, climbing and camping. Further out you'll find the neighbouring region of Cordoba, as well as Cadiz, Malaga and Huelva, if you fancy a change of scenery by the beaches along the coast.

But Seville is home to a whole host of cultural gems, incliding Torre del Oro tower on the bank of the Guadalquivir River and the General Archive of the Indies, home to over 40,000 files on the history of discovering the Americas. The cobbled Gothic streets of Barrio Santa Cruz are the most visited in Seville, dotted with tapas bars, charming shops and orange tree-lined plazas. The Roman Catholic cathedral, Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, in Seville city is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the province’s main attractions, visited by culture-vultures year-round who come to marvel at its ornate baroque interior.

Seville Province offers plenty for families. Isla Mágica theme park is a favourite with Tom Cruise's daughter, who visited during the filming of Knight and Day in 2009! Little ones can practice their best Jedi pose by the magnificent fountains of Plaza de España, once used as a backdrop for Star Wars films. For an evening of Flamenco dancing, theatre, tapas and delicious gastronomy, Seville city, on the banks of the Río Guadalquivir has plenty to offer, while the whitewashed villages, 'pueblos blancos' have old town charm, where alfresco diners are met with the sounds of Spanish guitars and clinking wine glasses. Seville's stewed meats are a must try if you want to dine like a local!

Cerro del Hierro's rugged terrain is the perfect spot for rock climbing. For a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic, Huelva Province is a 1 hour 50 minute drive away, offering a stunning coastline of golden sand and family-friendly beaches. The Olive Oil Farm Tour is a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture, where you can learn about how they make their delicious salad dressing and sample or buy some to bring home with you. Families with little ones will love Acuario de Sevilla, an 8-minute drive south from Seville’s city centre, while parents can enjoy some down time at the building's yoga centre. Isla Magica theme park is packed with entertaining rides and water slides, with restaurants and modern amenities for kids of all ages.
