About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 - Cozy, Quiet Penthouse in City Center with Roof

Located across the XV century palace named “Pilate´s House” (you can enjoy the view of its beautiful gardens with authentic Roman sculptures and antiques from your own rooftop terrace with the illuminated Giralda Tower and many other Church steeples as a backdrop) and next to the Casa Imperial (a XVI century palace) you cannot beat this location if you want to be in the center of Seville’s historic district. This area of the old quarter is made up of a maze of old narrow cobble-stoned streets, each one leading to a new gem: restaurants, bars, and fabulous antique palaces, some which have been recently restored make up the atmosphere of what many consider to be the nicest area of the historical center of Seville, and also near neighborhood markets if you want to immerse yourself in the “real” Seville.

The apartment is located on a very quiet street in one of the most typical quarters, with a mix of stately, historic houses, plazas and churches. This part of the city provides a perfect insight of everyday life in Seville, offering a more authentic experience without sacrificing proximity to the major monuments and cultural sights. As for gastronomy, every bar and restaurant in the neighborhood offers a wealth of history for viewing while one enjoys tasting traditional Spanish cuisine.

There is a harmonious blend of Gothic-Mudejar, Renaissance and Romantic architecture right outside your door. It is close to the bus lines and main entrances of the city center, although there is enough within walking distance to keep you busy for days (the Alcazar, the Cathedral, the archeological city remains at the Metropol-Parasol or “Seta”, the old Jewish Quarter, the Santa Cruz pedestrian center, the Riverwalk, the Torre del Oro…). The oldest plaza in the city, the Salvador, is a few minutes from your location – the Roman Agora was located here and you can find the original columns as you walk through the pedestrian streets.

The penthouse has a maximum capacity for four people: one bedroom with a double bed and a comfortable double sofa bed in the living room, with lots of natural light through the unobstructed windows in every room and a wonderful terrace. There is an open kitchen fully equipped with stove top, microwave, refrigerator, freezer and clothes washing machine; an upgraded bathroom with a shower, central air conditioning and WIFI.

There is a public car park at Calle Catalina 2, at 500 meters (.25 miles – walking distance), closest shops and grocery at 10 m, restaurants at 20 m, bus stops at 50 m, railway station at 2 km (1.2 miles).

About Inma & Marcus

I grew up in Seville, and I know the city like the back of my hand. Although I moved to the United States, my husband, two children and I still visit a couple of times every year because my entire family of 10 brothers and sisters are all there! I decided to buy my own place rather than staying at my parents, and found this little jewel :) I searched high and low, with location and quiet foremost in my mind.

Inma & Marcus purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Inma & Marcus chose Seville Province

Location, location, location! Although it is in the very center of the old city, which tends to be very dark because of the narrow streets, the fact that this is the only attic on the top floor provides as much light as if I was in a chalet at the top of a hill - but instead of a forest of trees, I am surrounded by church steeples and palace gardens! I went to school nearby and used to walk by the Pila del Pato and the narrow Callejon to walk to my aunts, and it felt like I was going back in time! Since then I have always dreamed of living there.

What makes this apartment unique

You can't beat the view! Sitting in the terrace and listening to the doves cooing in the magnolia trees from the neighboring Casa de Pilatos Palace, the church bells calling time, and the sun shinning among the rooftops, with the Giralda presiding, as you sip a glass of wine... there is nothing better in the world, in my opinion! The fact that you can be anywhere on foot in just a few minutes (the Cathedral, the Alcazar, the Antiquarium, the Fresh Market or any of the magnificent local restaurants) is also a unique benefit of the location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time in Sevilla, the apartment was perfect for our stay! It´s central, small but enough space for two people and good equipped. The terrace is a big advantage! The view is wonderful and we sat there every morning having breakfast. We totally recommend this apartment and would love to stay there some time again. Thanks Inma!

Our first time in Seville

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect for walking about the town and we never once used a cab, bus or tram. The roof top view was a wonderful place to have a morning coffee as the sun came up or a glass of wine as it went down. This was one of the quietest places we stayed on this trip to Spain. We slept well, ate well and just enjoyed being there. There is wonderful food aplenty all around you and getting to the main sites is easy.

Great location & even better host. She was extremely helpful, kind and willing to make the best of our staying. Five stars for personality!

The only thing it should be mentioned in describing apartment is that it is in walk up building, so people should not count on elevator and some might need it...

Absolutly recommended.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place to explore the city on foot. Comfortable with all the necessities. Spacious rooftop right outside apartment door to enjoy breakfast or just having a drink. But it is a 5th floor walk up so be aware of that.

We rented this apartment for 1 month and absolutely loved staying here!!! Every morning we would have breakfast on the incredible rooftop which was magical. You hear all the birds who are drawn to all the trees and gardens surrounding the place because you are next to a gorgous Moorish palace, Casa De Pilatos. We slept with windows open as it is extremely quiet in this very beautiful residential area. We loved the location and it was easy to navigate the maze of streets with google maps. The apartment has everything you need: very fast reliable wifi, great ac, comfty bed, good closet space, washer (clothes dry very quickly on line outside), all dishes and cookware to make it your home away from home. Santa Justa Train station is closest station being under 15 min easy walk. We took many little trips and used this as our home base. We will really miss it here! Stay here and you too will fall in love with this place!!!
