We loved everything about our apartment. It was in a perfect location, for us to return for the
Siesta time every day. The patio was beautiful. We loved Seville and plan to go back some day. We will definitely rent this again, and recommend it to all our friends
Our family of 4 travel to Seville over the 2015 Christmas holiday. When we arrived in Seville after 36 hours of travel, tired and dispirited - late flights and lost luggage. We were thrilled when we saw the beautiful apartment and even more thrilled when we saw that Spain Select had very kindly stocked the kitchen with essentials for coffee and breakfast the next morning! The location of the Casa Palacio San Jose was perfect - a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral and many delicious choices for tapas within a 5 minute walk. We were honored to meet the owner, who shared with us some of the history of the building, which was fascinating. A truly wonderful vacation in Spain!
We were two married couples who had never been to Seville. We can't wait to start planning our next trip to this beautiful apartment. It is more beautiful than the pictures on HomeAway and very well situated to walk to everything. Best tapas we had on our 2 week trip in Spain. Very comfortable beds, beautiful big bathrooms and the outdoor space is splendid. We rented the two bedroom, two bathroom . They also have a three bedroom.
It is a classic Andalusian building, lovely restored to comply with the art of the area, the property is comfortable well decorated with wonderful art from the area, it's location is superb, within walking distance to everything. It has many wonderful surprises the size of Apt. 1 is superb for families traveling together, large living, dining and reading room, not common in rentals, that includes high end. We loved the owners passion for their house, and it is a unique experience. The house is well maintained and very clean. Spain Select description is very accurate, and would add the bonus of your own balconies to see the processions.
We were 2 couples so 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were a must. This apartment offered us so much more. The location was perfect and within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. We loved the patio and spent many evenings enjoying the bells of churches and the little bats flying overhead. The owner has paid attention to every detail and you will be well taken care of by the staff. It was a lovely oasis arriving after a hot day of touring the city. I would stay here again in a minute.
This stunning apartment in Seville, Spain was a dream come true! It is beautifully appointed in every aspect and is even better than the photo's portray. The furnishings were gorgeous. The decor was beautiful. The floorplan was ideal. The terrace views were amazing. And the amenities were fantastic and included fine linens/towels and a fully stocked kitchen. Everything was cleaned to perfection and spotless.
And the location could not have been better!
We were close to all the major attractions and could walk everywhere. The market was convenient as well. We were able to get everything we needed to make coffee & breakfast in the morning and enjoy on our own private terrace (off the living room) which was lush with beautiful bouganvilla. In the evenings, we enjoyed incredible sunsets with wine and tapas on the upper terrace. It was all magnificent!
I also want to mention that the rental process and service from Spain Select was outstanding. Everything was managed in a prompt, efficient and professional manner. All personnel could not have been more accomodating! I would highly recommend Spain Select to family and friends if they are ever traveling to Spain. I have traveled all over Europe and this was one of the most impressive accomodations I have seen yet!
Thank you Spain Select for the highlight of our trip!!
