Oh Seville…. for four days the sun didn’t stop shining! Wish it could be like that at the start of February in the UK ay? 24 degrees in winter would be fabulous!
We loved Seville, from the orange trees to the flamenco, from the tapas to the palace. I’ll give you a quick round up of what we did, what we’d recommend if you visit and why you should visit!
Firstly, the flights were £36!!!! I mean, it’s more expensive for me to get home to Wales from London so it’s a no brainer! Albeit, watch out if you fly Ryan air for the added baggage charge (I got stung for £50 even though I thought my baggage counted as carry on, nope!!!).

As I mentioned, it’s sunny in February. And I mean very sunny which just makes everybody happy! What is better than eating alfresco in the sunshine 🙂
The palace is epic and it’s free people! The grounds and garden are open to all to wander around for free. There are great photo opportunities, gondolas to hire on the water and street flamenco.
Did I mention flamenco? We booked this show with tapas at ‘Tablao Flamenco El Arenal‘ via viator and would highly recommend it. You can eat before and during the performance (they give you random tapas) or you can just go for the show for around £36. The dancers were so passionate, it’s worth a watch!
Seville hasn’t really been the best place we’ve visited for cuisine but we love the local tapas and we would recommend Cerveceria Giralda Bar and the oldest tapas bar there El Rinconcillo 🙂
At breakfast, we found a gorgeous sun trap roof terrace and an all you can eat brekkie for 5 euros!!! what!!! And a bit more expensive but fab rooftop bar with pool and loungers was Pura vida terraza.
Where did we stay? Well, we absolutely loved our hotel ‘Las Casa de la Juderia’.
It is made up of 27 buildings and full of winding stone corridors and water features, a fabulous piano bar with vintage decor, a ‘help yourself’ tea/coffee/snacks area and a blissful spa. We used the spa for the Jacuzzi pools, sauna, aromatherapy room and vitamin shower. They give you a cup of tea while you sit on the hot stone bench. All this for 30 euros!
Everything is within walking distance in Seville so for an easy lovely cheap weekend GO!!
