This is a very comfortable “home from home”, furnished to an exceptional standard with a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture and fully air-conditioned, making it the perfect place to return after a busy days sightseeing for one or two families or a group of friends who wish to enjoy the history and character of Seville whilst living in a luxury home.
Situated in the heart of the historical centre (La Judería), this house is located in the pedestrian-only side of one of the most ancient and beautiful streets in Seville.
The main facade faces the palace of Don Miguel Mañara, on whose early life is based the universal character of Don Juán Tenorio. The original medieval palace was modernized to Renascence style in the XVI c. and it has been declared 'Historical Patrimony of Spain'.
The lateral facade faces an orange-tree lined street opposite St. Bartholomew's church, built in XVIII c. over the ancient central synagogue of Seville.
Built in 1910, this characterful property has all the comforts of a modern luxury family home while it has retained many of it's original features, including a central patio -now covered with a bullet-proof grade skylight-, high ceilings and neoclassical facades opposite historical buildings. The house is warm in winter and cool in summer due to the thickness of the outer walls and high ceilings.
