Those of us that are part of Home at Homes share a very characteristic quality: we suffer what is known as the 'Stendhal syndrome'. Beautiful things excite us and there is nothing we can do about it! We strive to see, feel and taste the good things in life. We can be very miserable at times, but when we are happy, we put all our heart and soul into staying that way. This blessed curse conditions even our long working hours, something which, on the other hand, fills us with happiness. And being happy is very good for your health!
Work and fate have made both of us travel extensively. Along our separate ways, we have met fascinating people and amazing places and we have experienced material and transcendental luxury to the point of being obsessed with finding those sweet moments.
Karin Wallis is a cosmopolitan from birth. Swedish mother and English father, born in London, and travelled around more than half the world. She speaks English, Spanish, German and Swedish and came to work in tourism through her marketing career. In addition to traveling, you will also see her enjoying scuba diving, horse riding, skiing and any sport that involves adventure and keeping fit. She is an amateur photographer (though nobody would guess this by seeing her work!) and she shoots most of the photographs you can find on the Home at Homes website. She is a lover of good food, has an infatuation for perfection and enjoys a cold GT at the end of a long and happy day's work.
Nono del Barco has spent half his life making people feel good. Some people say that his vocation is being a super-host. He has spent most of his life in the high level tourism sector, from hospitality to public relations. Pioneer in the invigoration of Seville nightlife, he has opened the doors to avant-garde and innovative proposals in the city's gastronomic sector. A “Sevillano” to the marrow, perfectionist, and lover of good life, good food and fine wines, he has a directory worth its weight in gold: containing the key to everything from the most hidden “tasca” to the most exclusive and private joint, Nono del Barco knows them all, because the city holds no secrets for him.
Home at Homes is our most personal project. A formula between tourism and a break from convention, designed to make our guests enjoy their destination as real insiders, allowing them to feel the intimacy and privacy that a home can provide. We have hunted for and selected very personal properties, homes with the common denominator of excellent location and special attention to detail.
The good things in life. Feeling at ease with yourself. Pursuing moments of happiness and carefreeness. Squeeze out those special moments...
We are thrilled with these happy moments in life and there is nothing we can (or want) to do about this!
We invite you to be part of Home at Homes.
