How to Find Hacienda Dos Olivos
Hacienda Dos Olivos is located in Andalusia, in the South of Spain, an area famed for its wonderful climate, cultural diversity and rich history.
Conveniently situated only 30kms southwest of Seville, Hacienda Dos Olivos nestles in gently undulating hills of olive, orange and almond trees on the ancient route to the pilgrim’s town of El Rocío. Bordering the Doñana National Park, this region is world renowned for producing the delicate Fine Manzanilla table olive and is home to the Andalusian horse.
The surrounding area is studded with numerous small towns and villages, each with its own distinct flavour and origins. Our two nearest towns, Pilas the main producer for table olives and Aznalcázar renowned for its vast umbrella pine forests.
This historically important region called El Ajarafe, (originating from the Arabic word “Al-Xaraf” meaning high plateaux), has been inhabited since the Phoenicians for its fertile lands, abundant water and spectacular views. It was from here that the Romans exported olive oil and wine to cities throughout their Empire. Still today the remains of a Roman bridge can be seen in Aznalcázar.
