This 4 bedroom luxury property is situated on Calle de San Fernando, nearly opposite the prestigious Alfonso XIII. Three of its four bedrooms have views of the Alcazar Royal Gardens. Decorated to the last detail to make your stay in Seville perfect !

The space

Once you see it, you will be lost forever. This enchanting property is uniquely located in the elegant street of San Fernando and borders on the perimeter walls of Seville’s beautiful 14th century Moorish-style palace, the Real Alcázar. Given the very few residential homes in the street, you can enjoy almost exclusive views of this magnificent palace.

The property is part of a beautifully restored 18th century building which was originally built as living quarters for high-ranking staff of the Royal Tobacco Factory, a magnificent industrial building which looks over the street and today houses the administrative offices of Seville University.

Once inside, this four-bedroom apartment will literally bowl you over, with its bright natural sunlight and spectacular views over the baroque façade of the old tobacco factory and the remains of the magnificent perimeter wall of the Real Alcázar gardens.

The property is very spacious, a rarity today in old buildings in the city centre, and full of structural and decorative details common to Sevillian architecture of that period. White predominates throughout, emphasizing the high ceilings and neoclassical decorative details, such as the pillars and mouldings. The painted wood of doors, windows and balconies is an original feature, as is the magnificent marble fireplace in the main living area. The marble and terracotta floors throughout add to the high quality theme.

The interior design is purposefully simple, somewhat neoclassical, to accentuate the spaciousness of the whole property and ensure maximum comfort and convenience, whilst at the same time affording a sense of romanticism and warmth.

The entrance hallway has minimum clutter, with just wall lighting and an umbrella stand, and leads to the living area and dining room through an opening flanked by elaborate plaster pillars and mouldings.

The bright living room opens onto the San Fernando street via two beautiful wrought-iron balconies. There is a magnificent fireplace around which the main sitting area is arranged, with two large modern sofas, easy chairs and a modern coffee table which sit naturally alongside antiques, more classical pieces of furniture, and reproductions of old paintings on the walls. Rugs, throws and cushion covers in shades of brown and purple provide a fresh touch. There is a built-in bookcase and a work area with a period writing table and appropriate lighting.

The dining room can accommodate up to eight guests. Accessible from the living room or directly from the entrance hall, it has a beautiful period table and a set of antique chairs. You will be sorely tempted to lay the table here!

The large kitchen has a clearly defined working area and eating area. It is fully equipped with the latest white goods, and opens onto the dining room via a serving hatch.

At the entrance of the property you have the first double bedroom that looks onto San Fernando street and is decorated following the same simple yet romantic lines as the rest of the property. The pretty and original headboards over the two double beds make a clear statement, as do the mouldings and skirting’s, all of which is enhanced by the bright sunlight enveloping the room. The bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom.

The rest of the sleeping area has magical views over the perimeter wall of the Alcázar. It has three further double rooms, each delightfully decorated and provided with a fitted wardrobe. The terracotta floors are coupled with traditional ceramic skirting and neo-Mudejar (Moorish) style mouldings, a concession to the decorative trends of the period.

The second double bedroom also has queen-size beds, its own en-suite bathroom, and a balcony with magnificent views.

The third and fourth bedrooms also have their own bathroom and twin beds. The property can thus accommodate up to eight discerning guests, making it ideal for large families or a group of friends.

San Fernando street, which used to cross the city wall, is a superb location for those wishing to see it all. Without leaving the apartment itself, you have a sweeping view of the Royal Tobacco Factory and the Alfonso XIII hotel, a veritable icon of traditional Sevillian architecture.

A short stroll away is the entrance to the Maria Luisa Park and the Plaza de España, one of the most iconic works of renowned architect Anibal González, built for the Universal Exhibition of 1929. San Fernando also leads easily to the Murillo Gardens and the picturesque Barrio de Santa Cruz.

In the opposite direction lie the Avenida de la Constitución, the Cathedral of Santa María de los Reyes, and the Giralda, and, of course, the gardens of the Real Alcázar, a stunning complex which must not be missed. Not only is San Fernando one of the most dynamic streets in the city, it is also superbly communicated, with good transport links by tram, on the underground system serving the whole of the metropolitan area of Seville, or from the nearby Prado de San Sebastián bus station.

Wow, we cannot recommend the apartment highly enough! I'm an AirBNB host myself and so have pretty high standards and this place exceeded them. Roberto who met us on arrival was amazing. Super friendly and communicative and took the time to sit down with a map and show us all his favorite restaurants etc in Sevilla. And great recommendations! The apartment is stunning and the location right by the Alcazar could not have been better, we walked everywhere. The decoration is as beautiful as the photos and it was spotlessly clean, with great AC, which is important in Sevilla in August! The fridge was stocked with breakfast supplies and there was a Nespresso machine for morning espressos. Really one of the best AirBNB rentals we have ever stayed in, wish we had booked it for a month!

We could not have been happier with everything about this apartment. The location on a beautiful quiet pedestrian only street with amazing views in all sides cannot be beat. And the apartment itself is spacious and perfectly equipped to provide a setting that corresponds to the historic elegance of Sevilla. So easy to walk everywhere and everything within a stone's throw away (restaurants, bars, cathedral, etc). Perfect for a large family like ours with private bedrooms and bathrooms attached. We would definitely recommend this apartment highly and hope to stay here again in the future!

Fab location right in the centre of Seville.The flat was spacious and airy, clean and tidy with every convenience to hand. The hosts were amenable and helpful offering sightseeing and restaurant recommendations.Absolutely no complaints whatsoever, on the contrary, would happily use Home At Homes again and recommend them.

Make sure that the water problem has been fixed. This is a lovely apartment in a great location, BUT during our stay there were serious problems with the water supply. There were 8 of us but if any tap was turned on the shower would stop. This really spoiled our experience. We were told that it was a problem with the building rather than the apartment but we suffered. Communication was good, but I feel that if you are going to charge a high price, you are obliged to provide a first class property. There are many good things about this property but not enough to offset our inconvenience. I would not return

Our small agency was created by two people: Karin Wallis, half English and half Swedish has lived most of her life in Madrid and Nono de Barco, 100% Sevillano down to the marrow, has lived in Seville all of his life. We created the agency as we wish to do something different: take peoples charming homes and transform them into rentals, keeping the magic and charm the owners created when they built their home but at the same time making it comfortable and adequate for our clients such as giving them plenty of empty cupboard space, ensuring the only food in the fridge is the one of our welcome hamper and making sure everything is working correctly and is sparkling clean so that when you arrive, the property will feel like instant home to you too. There are no two properties alike, nor are there two guest exactly alike but we do trust we will have the right home for you.
Nuestra pequeña agncia fué creada por Karin Wallis, mitad inglesa y mitad sueca ha vivido casi toda su vida en Madrid y Nono de Barco, 100% Sevillano hasta la médula, ha vivido en Sevilla toda su vida. Creamos esta empresa dado que queríamos hacer algo diferente: transformar la acogedora casa de un propietario a una propiedad para alquilar manteniendo la magia y el encanto que los propietarios metieron en ella pero a su vez adecuándola para que sea cómodo para nuestros clientes. No hay dos propiedades iguales, ni hay dos clientes exactamente iguales pero confiamos en tener una casa de su agrado.
