My 500 year old Barrio Santa Cruz house project

1 of 38
Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Seville, Province of Seville, Andalucia
I like to make beautiful spaces. There is not one specific way for something to be beautiful. When I first got this place, I felt like it was already a beauty, but it was covered up pretending to be something it was not. For many years, people who were here did not respect what it was. So I began to do what I felt the house asked for, which was not to try to be something it is not, but to accept what it is. And what it is is a 500-year-old house that is proud and comfortable with itself. 'I am old and I don’t want to change or try to be something I am not. Don’t make me new. Make me real,” the house said to me. So a relationship began. “What do you want?” I would ask, and it told. Sometimes we would fight. Sometimes we laughed. Sometimes it seemed like we would never get along. But we never quit, and we bonded and became friends.

Interaction with guests
As much or as little as you like. I’m happy to give you suggestions of my favorite places to visit and restaurants around town. Or have a conversation about anything in general. Other things to note I travel a lot always looking to create or do cool projects, so I am not always home, but If I am traveling there will be Simon who helped me do the 3rd floor around.

Beautifully restored historic home. Welcoming host. Clean and modern amenities. Excellent AC. Perfect for families or a small group of friends (fewer than 8). We have three young adult daughters and they each had their own room on the second floor with a single bathroon,...More

If you are into new, modern, spotless, sterile places to stay, this is not your place. This is for folks who want to live in a piece of history. This is not to say it isn't clean, it is, but it has adobe bricks everywhere...More

About the neighbourhood
If you’re coming to Sevilla to see the city, there is no better place to stay than Santa Cruz. The first time I came to Sevilla, I didn’t know anything about it and I was alone. I found this neighborhood just walking around, and I was amazed. I felt like I wanted the people I knew to see it with me. The streets are so small you spread your arms and touch both sides. You can find small passages where you have to duck down to pass. You can peak into a patio and feel like you’re looking into the past, like you are a time traveler. So many of us have this dream to go explore a place and get lost in a maze of beautiful history, cobblestone streets, old walls with hanging vines. This is it — this is Santa Cruz.
