House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
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.

Situated in the heart of the historical centre (La Judería), the house is located in the pedestrian-only side of one of the most ancient and beautiful streets in Seville.
One facade is opposite the medieval palace of Don Miguel de Mañara, on whose early life is based the universal character of Don Juán Tenorio. The original medieval palace was “modernised” to Renascence style in the XVI c. and it has been declared Historical Patrimony of Spain.
The other facade faces an orange-tree lined street opposite the church of St. Bartholomew, built in XVIII c. over the ancient central synagogue.
The House of Pilate (built in XVI c. as a copy of the praetorium of Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem), Jardines de Murillo, Parque de Maria Luisa, Plaza de España, Torre del Oro, Royal Alcázares and the Cathedral (La Giralda) are within a five to 10 minute walk radius from the house.

"Wonderful Sevilla house!"
We were a family of 6 and this house was perfect, fully equipped, with sparkling marble floors, beautiful French windows and a large roof terrace. It is perfectly situated with no passing traffic except the congregation of the ancient church across the street whose beautiful bell tower you can almost touch from the roof terrace (the Giralda visible in the distance). Just steps away is Don Juan's house, La Carboneria and Bar Levies and the beauty of Santa Cruz. The owners, Benjamin and Maria, were as kind and helpful as can be. Will go back for sure!

"Fantastic house !"
This very beautiful, very elegant and comfortable house is located in the heart of historic part of Seville (very central). It's very big, mix of modern and ancient furniture, very clean with noble materials and furniture. The house is full of charm and very quiet, with an elevator inside, which is very convenient to carry luggages. There is a big top floor terrace to relax. It's exactly as described on the advert and on the photos of the house and even Better. Two families may largely stay in this house as it is very big. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very pretty and it is very pleasant to have breakfast in the kitchen. The hall entrance is huge and very comfortable.
The land owners are very helpful and very nice. They were present the day of our arrival and explained us everything concerning the house and when we left, they drove us to reach the motorway to Cordoba.
Seville is a fantastic city. Next time we come back, we definitely stay at Calle Levies house. We highly recommend this house.
