Your stay in Casa Palacio San José will be an unforgettable experience. This enchanting palace was originally constructed in the 17 th Century and was completely restored in 1993 by Rafael Manzano, the only Spanish architect to have won the prestigious Richard H. Driehaus Classical Architecture Award. Life in this traditional and authentic property revolves around two pretty patios and the magnificent roof terraces. The main patio is surrounded by a gallery made up of impressive roman columns and the centerpiece is a beautiful marble fountain. There is a mechanic awning that moves with the sun, keeping the property cool during the hottest hours of the day. The patios remain at a pleasant temperature and allow a great deal of natural light into all of the rooms. Casa Palacio San José is in a very privileged area, between two of the most popular areas of the city: Santa Cruz and the Jewish Quarter and in front of the Madre de Dios Convent, constructed in the 16 th Century. It is also close to the 18 th Century Synagogue called Santa María La Blanca, which is an Andalusian heritage site. No expense has been spared in the furnishing and decoration of the apartment, with marble flooring, antique furniture and individual style touches throughout. The living and dining area is spacious and bright, with plenty of sitting space and access to the large private terrace. This is just one of three separate outdoor spaces that guests can make use of,each giving different view over the city. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. Each of the double bedrooms is bright and comfortable and the two bathrooms have been decorated with traditional Spanish tiles. Guests also have use of the communal area on the top floor of the house, which includes laundry facilities and a small kitchen. The property is just a five minute walk from the Giralda, Cathedral, Reales Alcázares, etc. restaurants and tapas bars, supermarkets, markets, flamenco bars, Murillo Gardens and also the Maria Luisa Park. Santa Justa train station is a ten minute drive away, where you can get the high-speed train which leaves you in Madrid in just two and half hours.

Thank you Spain Select and Tracey ! South Africa is our first home and beloved country, but we have created some of the best memories during our visit to Spain. Spain Select and team assisted us in most of our reservations. Our favourite city in Spain was Seville and the lovely atmosphere and quality of Casa San Jose surprised us. It was a place to create lasting memories. It has been almost a year and our young children still kindle the memories of their stay. Professional service, quality of accommodation and location makes a big difference when travelling across continents to a foreign country where language is concerned. Spain Select is a great ambassador for the country. We will return.
Good morning from Spain! Thank you so much for taking the time to send us your feedback. We are so thrilled to hear that Stacey was able to assist you and that the service you received from her was everything you had hoped for. Seville truly is a magical city and we are so happy to hear that our apartment Casa Palacio San Jose III contributed to making your family’s stay memorable. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Spain very soon.
The Spain Select Team

We stayed six nights at the Casa Palacio San Jose III. It is the perfect place to stay for exploring Seville, being very centrally located in the area of the Bario Santa Cruz. The apartment is all that you would want a place to be for a great vacation, with plenty of room in the apartment for our party of four and a great private patio to sit and have breakfast, lunch or dinner or just have a drink and enjoy the sun. The marble floors make the whole place very cool, even in the heat of the afternoon and we didn't need to use the air conditioning during our stay. The central courtyard, used by all of the apartments is beautiful and really makes you feel as if you are living in a palace. The check in process was very efficient and friendly and our one inquiry during our stay was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Overall, we had a great experience at San Jose III - one that we would be very happy to repeat.
