Our apartment is in a building designed by the famous Seville architect, Anibel Gonzalez. Although the building is a historical gem, it has been completely renovated to include modern comforts (centralized air conditioning and heating, elevator, WiFi). There are two bedrooms, separated by an ample living space. Both beds have firm queen-sized mattresses. One of the two bedrooms has a balcony that looks out to the plaza. It has a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living room with smart TV.
It is one of 4 apartments in the emblematic building. We love that it is part of the city´s rich history! We especially admire its balcony on the plaza, high ceilings, arched windows and beautiful facade.
There is a wonderful breakfast bar downstairs. They have wonderful Italian coffee and they make their own breads and cakes. Fabulous olive oil too!
Pepe and I think of each guest as if you were family. We believe that the point of Airbnb is to feel connected to the people of the place you are exploring and to have extra assistance in getting to know the place you are visiting. However, we also respect that each guest is different and some prefer privacy while others may like a bit of company.
There is a flea market that takes place every Thursday right at the foot of our apartment. Pretty cool to see. The family that owned the building prior to its renovation were known for the books their sold on Thursdays.
Our most important rule of the house is that you ENJOY!
With that said we are a no smoking, no pets apartment. We appreciate that guests take care of our home and treat the neighbors with respect.
Pepe and I are a creative couple who met in Spain through our common interest in art. I am originally from New Jersey, exit 4 for those who need to know. I landed in Seville over 16 years ago and decided to stay mostly for the cheap wine and great fish. Pepe is from Seville but he will tell you his mother is from Huelva, making him half "choquero" (the term used for people from coastal Huelva). His passions are photography, nature and salty air. Some of his photos decorate our home as do a few of my collages. I worked 12 years in the Andalusian government in environmental projects but after falling in love with olive oil, left my job and became an expert olive oil taster. In our free time we enjoy trying to figure out how to restore our 37 year old sailboat, hiking and taking long motor bike rides through Spain. We fall under the category of live to eat and not eat to live and like to try the newest tapas bars in Seville. We will be more than happy to share our foodie-findings as well as interesting places in Andalusia that we have enjoyed exploring by foot, by boat, by motor and by accident.
Pepe y yo somos una pareja creativa que se conoció en España a través de nuestro interés común en el arte. Soy originaria de Nueva Jersey, la salida 4 para aquellos que necesitan saberlo. Aterricé en Sevilla hace más de 16 años y decidí quedarme por el buen vino y el pescado fresco. Pepe es de Sevilla pero él le dirá que su madre es de Huelva, haciéndole medio "choquero" (el término utilizado para aquellas personas de la costa de Huelva). Sus pasiones son la fotografía, la naturaleza y el aire salado. Algunas de sus fotos adornan nuestra casa así como unos de mis collages. En nuestro tiempo libre nos gusta tratar de encontrar una manera de restaurar nuestro velero de 37 años, hacer senderismo y dar largos paseos en moto por España. Caemos en la categoría de vivir para comer y no comer para vivir. Por lo cual nos gusta probar los nuevos bares de tapas de Sevilla. Estaremos encantados de compartir nuestros encuentros gastronómicos, así como lugares de interés en Andalucía que hemos disfrutado al explorar a pie, a pedales, en barco, en moto ó por accidente.
