"Sleep at a palace watched over by a saint and king. That’s what we’re offering you from Home at Homes."
The Palacio Buenavista is an utterly unique 17th century patio house of great historical value, which has been carefully restored this year. The façade boasts a beautiful ceramic tableau depicting a bust of king Ferdinand III, also known as Ferdinand the Saint, patron of Seville. Legend has it that the monarch slept in the inn which previously stood on this very site on the eve of his triumphal march into Seville, on 22 December 1248. The building then became known as the “House for a night”, as can be read on the tableau. The origin of the tableau is unknown, but its artistic value is an important attraction for tourists and locals alike.
The palace today houses 12 independent and singular apartments. This is one of the most charming and compact and is the one nearest the tableau. So sleeping here really means sleeping under the vigilant gaze of the king himself. What could be more auspicious for your stay in Seville!
Doubtless a plus point if you’re into history. But history apart, this property offers you all the comforts and conveniences that the most discerning traveller could wish for: high spec equipment, top quality materials, state of the art heating and cooling systems, perfect insulation and careful design.
The contemporary, open plan living area incorporates the kitchen, which is provided with a small dining table, and there are two balconies looking onto the calle Cano y Cueto and bringing in natural light. The sloping ceilings highlight the exposed original wooden beams. The liberty flower wallpaper provides warmth and glamour, contrasting with the contemporary décor.
The bedroom is spacious, with sloping ceiling and a balcony looking out onto the street. It has a full en-suite bathroom with rainfall shower and top quality sanitary ware and tiling.
