The Arab Garden was designed by the renowned spanish landscape architect Maria Medina Muro (Sevilla, 1945) in 1991.
Measuring 8 x 7 m, it is formed by four symmetrical parterres with box and albero pathways making a cross with an octagonal tiled fountain in the center. In the parterres there are a large and ancient sour-orange tree, a 20m-tall washingtonia robusta palm tree, a banana tree, and an hibiscus plant.
The Arab Garden looks onto the Loggia and the Pool on one side, and the Library on the other. The Arab Garden is specially enjoyable throughout the spring and autumn and at night in the summer.
The Pool was designed by the renowned sevillian decorator Manolo Morales de Jódar, who became renowned later in 1997 by buying, restoring and decorating the Palacio de San Benito in Cazalla de la Sierra.
Manolo, on his travels in the Algarve, found on the side of a road, a decrepit construction with a step-arch-step which he used to form the current design. He perfected it with the tiles, the five fountains and colours into the shape that can now be seen.
It measures 10 metres by 3.5 metres and is kept full and clean year-round. Because it is enclosed in tall walls, sunlight falls on it in the summer only from 11 am to 6 pm, maintaining the water coolish from June to September, and too cold to use from October to May.
All of the salas have high ceilings, abundant natural light, and air conditioning.

At the Casa de Carmona you will be able to celebrate a fabulous wedding reception. In short, you will be able to benefit from:
Carmona, 25km east of Seville, is a quiet, charming little white fortified town sitting atop a cliff overlooking a vast vega.
First settled 5000 years ago, Carmona is now full of roman walls, gates and archaeological sites, baroque churches, convents, and palatial houses.
Carmona’s architectural wealth derives from being surrounded by one of the most fertile agricultural fields in Andalucía, growing wheat and sunflower in the Vega, and olive and citrus groves in the plateau, peppered with many beautiful farmhouses.
Some of these farmhouses have developed their activities to present them to groups such as Horse Breeding and Dressage ( Finca Viña del Bailio ), Olive growing and Olive Oil production ( Basilippo ) or an Anise Distillery.
Further to the elegance of the architectural space, the antique furniture, fine china, glass, and linen, the enjoyment comes with the food – which at the Casa de Carmona is just simply the knowledgeable selection of the best local produce. We source from local farmers and serve what is of the moment – and we do to it as little as possible.
The highlight is always the produce – which is no other than respect for the produce – and this respect for the produce is no less than the respect for our clients and for ourselves. In these last 20 years, after having served and learnt from thousands of guests and thousands of catered events, we still get excited when the new crop of tomatoes becomes ripe, when our fishmonger calls to tell us a catch of Corvina has just arrived, or when we make something no more complicated than a fresh potato, melva and tomato salad!.
Although we enjoy and work for freshness, taste, beauty and elegance, we harbor no ambitions and absolutely no pretense – food service is a very communal endeavour!
At the Casa de Carmona we serve an enjoyable breakfast at the Loggia. This picture shows a buffet prepared for a group. For individual reservations, we do not set up a full buffet as shown in this picture, but set up a small buffet “on your table”. In this way we do not have the food deteriorating for hours until your arrival at breakfast, but can take it out of the fridge and present it on your table within 5 minutes. We then offer to cook eggs to order your way. We strive to present a healthy breakfast with the best coffee, breads, tomatoes, olive oils, jams etc. available. Breakfasts are served by the pool in the Loggia, on large individual tables, on a linen mantelpiece and with fine china, and we strive to make it a pleasurable experience. Breakfasts are all inclusive and cost 20 € per person.
Alternatively, you may also enjoy breakfast at one of the cafeterias in the Plaza de San Fernando, or in the Plaza de Abastos, which are just a 3 minute walk away and have outside seating.
Andalusian cuisine and traditional desserts in an old Arab mill with vaults, fireplace and a lookout tower. Steakhouse and tapas bar.
Monday to Saturday from 13:00 to 16:00 and from 20:30 to 23:45
Closed on Sunday
