Splendid, new flat in a classic, newly-renovated building in the heart of monumental Cadiz. This beautiful, 4th-floor apartment, flooded with light, is elegant and peaceful with clean and contemporary design. The entrance hall carries you past the lofty window gallery that opens onto the quiet, traditional interior patio. The open-plan kitchen/living room features a balcony over the pedestrian street (no traffic) with views over the rooftops and spires of Cadiz as well as a lateral view of the Cathedral. This handsome designer space, as well as the entire apartment, is both casual and luxurious with wooden floors, custom-fitted wooden interior shutters, and first-rate air conditioning/heating throughout. The living area provides serenity and comfort with its clean lines, natural leather sofa, pure wool carpet, large flat-screen TV and docking station for your music.
The kitchen and dining area is a compact and gorgeous work of minimalist design in white and natural wood colours. It comes entirely equipped with premium Silestone counters, an easy-to-clean induction cooker, dishwasher, large refrigerator, microwave, washing machine and nespresso machine. All these premium appliances are integrated behind push-open cabinets and therefore hidden to the eye.
The bedrooms are located at the back of the apartment over the patio of an 18th century convent. Absolute tranquility and natural light. All mattresses are new and premium quality; as are the pillows and the natural 100% cotton bedding. The master bedroom has a large King-size bed (160 x 200 cm), twin nightstands with reading lights, full-length mirror, vanity/working table, and a large flat-screen TV. The second bedroom has two European singles (90 x 200 cm). Both bedrooms have spacious, custom built wardrobes and excellent blinds.
The bathroom is finished with traditional Spanish-tile floor, a large shower, designer basin resting on a custom built cabinet with two big drawers, and a wall-mounted, magnification makeup mirror.
The building is from the turn of the 18th-19th century and has just been completely renovated inside and out-- always respecting its historical character and highlighting the elegant facade, wrought-iron balconies, soaring glazed window gallery on the interior patio, and original stucco/plaster embellishments. All utilities and infrastructure are new, like the lift that carries you to the apartment or higher up to the acessible rooftop with spectacular views of the Cathedral, the oceans and all Cadiz. The apartment is wheelchair accessible.
The location itself is also unbeatable. Situated on the short, pedestrian street called Calle Compañía, with the monumental Cathedral plaza at one end, and the quaint flower-market plaza and local food market with tapas bars, at the other. Calle de la Compañía is easily one of the most enjoyble and emblematic streets in Cadiz. Countless other monumental squares, churches, ramparts, and buildings are only a few minutes walk; so too are the endless succession of excellent tapas bars, restaurants, and taverns that make Cadiz famous. Just 150 metres from the front door is the impressive seawall walk and bikepath with incredible, sweeping views of the Atlantic. From here you can easily reach either of the two nearest beaches in 10-15 minutes walking. La Caleta is a small cove in the center of the old town full of character: tiny fishing boats, a 19th century bath house, and the requisite bars-terraces. The Playa Santa María del Mar, in the other direction, is the first of Cadiz’s wide, sandy beaches to the south that are considered some of the best in Spain. So all the places of cultural, historical, gastronomical, recreational, and logistical interst are extremely close. A car is not necessary, but there is inexpensive parking a 4 minute walk from yout front door. You will never forget your stay, and you are sure to return, to this laid-back and graceful Andalusian Paradise. Cadiz, Spain’s oldest city, is full of charm and surprises.
