This beautifully refurbished two bedroom apartment is located in the barrio de San Vicente, a historic neighbourhood looking out over the Guadalquivir and to the island of La Cartuja. Along with its neighbour San Lorenzo, San Vicente dates back to the Middle Ages, but is perhaps most closely linked to the Renaissance and Baroque periods when the area saw the most amount of growth and development. San Vicente is home to an astonishing number of sights of interest. The Fine Arts Museum is housed with an old 19th Century convent, and marks the beginning of the elegant calle de San Vicente, a wide street lined with beautiful buildings dating back to the 18th and 19th Centuries. There are a number of must-see sights and attractions within easy walking distance, including the Baths of the Moorish Queen, the lovely Plaza de San Lorenzo and its church, and the Basilica de Jesus del Gran Poder which houses the 17th Century Image of Christ by Juan Mesa, one of the city’s most treasured possessions. The calle de Santa Clara is lined with historic convents and stately homes, while the Alameda de Hercules is one of the city’s big draws. Slightly further afield but still within easy walking distance are many more attractions, including the famous Cathedral and Alcazar, while great shopping can be found along the calles Trajan and Amor de Dios. Food lovers needn’t worry either – the area is brimming with many great cafes and restaurants, ranging from a classic Andalusian taberna to more upmarket eateries. With two spacious double bedrooms, a beautiful skylight feature and a private rooftop terrace, the key to this apartment is its elegant simplicity. The fully-equipped modern kitchen and dining room are together in one bright, open-plan space, with modern furnishings, polished hardwood flooring and simple decorative pieces. The living room takes centre stage in the interior of the property – with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking an inner patio on one side, and access to the roof terrace on the other, the space is flooded with light. The outdoor terrace comes complete with dining table and chairs, making it perfect for enjoying an al-fresco meal while enjoying the view out over the city. The master bedroom is particularly impressive – unusually spacious and decorated in a classical yet discrete fashion, it offers ample space and storage for guests. The second, smaller bedroom is partitioned off from the living area via a screen, and shares the modern bathroom with the master bedroom. With a fabulous central location and lovely light-filled interior, this attic apartment is a great base in this vibrant city.
This property is not adecuate for children under the age of 14.
