insider tips

  • Take a front row seat at a dynamic and colourful flamenco show.
  • Explore the captivating Andalusian countryside and do not miss the picturesque drive through the whitewashed villages.
  • Drink manzanilla sherry and enjoy some Serrano ham at a tapas bar, many of which are clustered together on Calle Mateus Gago.
  • Avoid visiting during the peak summer months as it can get way too hot with temperatures soaring above 40 degrees celcius.

what we think

Seville is a Spanish cliché of flamenco, sherry and bullfighting. It claims to have invented the culinary art of tapas and has more than 4,000 tapas bars to support its contention. The energy emanating from the locals is infectious and the buzz is undeniable. Luxury accommodation exists in the form of trendy minimalist hotels or charming converted palaces. As the capital of Andalucia it is easy to combine a visit to Seville with a journey to discover any one of the many white-washed moorish Andalucian towns or miles of unspoilt sandy beaches. Try to squeeze in a night or two at a chic private hacienda set amidst olive groves. Treat yourself to a perfect indulgence traversing between the vivacious Seville and the idyllic surrounds of the wider Andalusian region.
