An Exceptional Historical Building in a Peaceful Rural Location - Los pozos de la nieve apartment agua



Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Rural Apartments in Constantina, Seville Province, Andalucia - Rural Apartments located inside the Natural Park of Sierra Morena

Los Pozos de la Nieve, a building of the XVII the century with his exceptional historical and industrial value, has been awarded with a price and a special mention by the local Authorities and the Europa Nostra Awards 2006 in recognition of a valuable contribution to the conservation and enhancement of cultural heritage. Due to its orientation north, two big pits were constructed to maintain ice produced in small pools outside, providing ice to the Seville City. Striking is that these pits are incorporated in the building, to form one constructional, harmonious site. On the façade one still can find the ‘escudo of Seville’ dated from 1696 and a marble plate with inscription that the Ilustrisimo Cabildo y Regimiento of Seville bought the building…the period when Carlos II was the King of Spain…On the first floor, which breathes an atmosphere of a Moorish temple, you can find the chapel authorized by Pope Inocencio XII in 1697 and dedicated to "The Virgin of the Ice".

"My boyfriend and I were on a road trip and accidentally we came to these apartments. We are used to design 4/5-star hotels, but this was beyond every expectations. I literally had almost tears in my eyes, that is how beautiful it is! It is a perfect combination between the history of the building and the luxury of an apartment. It is just stunning.

If you need a place to relax? This is definitely the place to be! And even more great is that it is approximately a 5minute drive to the town constantina, which is still an older typical village in Spain.

Also there are a lot of things to do in the neighborhood, horseback riding, kayak, mountainbike, walking, etc. We were only there for 2 nights, completely relaxed after it!, but are already planing our next vacation there with friends. We can not wait to go back!" (A.K. Belgium)

“Friendliest place you'll find with plenty of history.”

Want to stay in a place where the queen of Spain has commended it for it's restoration? How about somewhere with the hospitality and pride of ownership of a half life of work oozes from the white walls? Or maybe somewhere where the gastronomy of the region is showcased over a multi-course dinner? Look no further. All of these things are true at Los Pozos. You won't be disappointed.

"We had a 3 day business meeting in Los Pozos de la Nieve in May 2013, with 15 participants from around Europe and US. The overall experience was beyond expectations. The service with friendly and professional attention to every participant's individual needs, and the atmosphere of a authentic ancient building carefully restored with a loving eye for its history and the clever thinking of modern needs, will not easily be matched by larger hotels or well-known high ranking chains. The owners provided full organizational support from pick-ups from Malaga and Sevilla airports and train stations, touring the old town of Sevilla, booking restaurants and arranging medical help for a guest who suffered a sudden toothache also driving her to the local health facility. They served welcome drinks, aperitifs, made breakfast, prepared coffee breaks and lunches and cooked a fantastic diner, unanimously rated by the guests as the best meals they during the entire stay. All of this was done with a smile, a friendly word and attention to all table needs, keeping glasses filled, food warm on the plates and plentiful. The place itself was beautiful with individually decorated guest rooms, an inviting meeting room, spacious surroundings for strolling, sitting at the pool, even jogging and incredible sights. A place to relax and to our experience also to work offering a tranquility that inspires the mind and the soul! Highly recommended " (Belgium)

Heerlijk appartement in een prachtige, rustige omgeving

  • 5 of 5

Wat een heerlijk appartement, van alle gemakken voorzien, schoon en stijlvol ingericht. We hebben hier 4 dagen genoten van de omgeving (prachtig wandel en fietsgebied) en de nabijheid van Sevilla (80 km. Het appartement zag er echt uit als op de foto's en de ontvangst was heel hartelijk. Echt een aanrader voor iedereen die van de rust wil genieten.
