We stayed for two weeks and everything was wonderful. The location is fabulous — close to everything and on a very cute street. The views from the apartment and patio are amazing. Even better than the photos. The building is very quiet and secure. The furniture is very comfortable and we had all the supplies we needed. The main bedroom is really nice, and the second sleeping space is separate enough from the living/dining space. Maria was so helpful. She left us to ourselves, but was very responsive when we had a question. Parking is in a tight space, not appropriate for bigger cars. Over the years we have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals, and this will be remembered as one of our all time favorites. Perfect. Thank you!

perfect apartment in stunning Cordoba

  • 5 of 5

Idyllic little apartment in wonderful location with views over the marvellous Mesquita Cathedral.

Set in the lovely cobble streets of this very underrated city, and entered off the street through a beautiful entrance hallway and classic central patio typical of this town, you will not be disappointed by the clean and bright spaces and rooftop areas with excellent views. We had a problem with the central heating not providing hot water at first, but owner maria Alonso was quickly on the scene to fix it. She gave us a fine welcome and useful information about the place. This is someone who cares about the property and its guests. Cordoba itself is a superb place to visit in a great setting with simply marvellous buildings. The mosque come cathedral is unforgettable and will wow anyone who is lucky enough to visit, showing the splendour of Moorish architecture married with Christian design. Don't miss Cordoba.

I loved this place and Maria did some amazing things to make it very welcoming; coffee, tea, little snacks, etc. It was very clean and comfortable and is located in the middle of everything we wanted to see in Córdoba. It is very roomy and has a wonderful little patio for relaxing in the shadow of the Mezquita. And to think that this was once the palace of a Moorish Princess in the 11th century!! And the view of the Mezquita from the living room window is even cooler in real life than it is in the picture. All in all, a great place that clearly aims to make visitors to Córdoba happy and comfortable. Do not hesitate to book this! And a shout out to Isabel who checked us in. She was great! Informative, personable, friendly and welcoming.

Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely lovely with all amenities and a wonderful view of the city. The terrace was fantastic! The apartment was extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean in the center of the historic district. Maria was highly communicative and so nice to speak with. Our only regret was that we wish we could have stayed longer here. Highly recommend.

We were really impressed by Maria's good information and assistance in planning our trip, so we had high expectations by the time we arrived at her apartment. Again, our expectations were surpassed. I've stayed in a variety of rental type properties. This was a treat - the furnishings are set up like an upmarket home vs. the more common bare minimum with as many beds squeezed in as possible. This was a family trip over Christmas, so we loved that we had a comfortable and welcoming space to visit together. Everything worked, including the heating, which was appreciated in the winter.

The outside space with a view is what had sold me on it, and it was even better than the pictures. The location of the apartment within the center of the historic district is excellent. Never more than a 15 minute walk and yet not right right next to any area that is crowded or noisy.

I am sure this is not the cheapest place to stay in Cordoba, but that is clearly not what Maria is going for here. This is a superbly furnished and maintained apartment in a prime location. Maria's place is totally worth the money if you want to treat yourselves and have a lovely place to relax between outings.

The bedroom is a comfortable size for two people + lots of luggage, with plenty of space to put away your things if you are there for several nights. I think there would also be space for a cot for a baby or toddler. The bathroom has a full size tub and strong shower. The upstairs bedroom is set off enough from the living room to not feel like you are in the middle of the living space. The kitchen is fully functional with a huge refrigerator, but it is cozy, so best with just two people at a time in there cooking. However, given the amazing restaurants within a stone's throw, why would you want to cook anything other than breakfast??

I can recommend both Maria and her lovely apartment without reservation! Having this lovely spot to plan our day from and to come home to each evening made our stay in Cordoba really special. A big thank you to Maria for going above and beyond during our stay.
