À propos de ce logement
Hey whats up guys, my name is Juan Carlos. I had a dream to get a place and fix it up on my own. I am currently working on it and what you see is one of the finished rooms. Its a work in progress. If you are interested in more info about the designs I have done to the house please read below.
I like to make beautiful spaces. There is not one specific way for something to be beautiful. When I first got this place, I felt like it was already a beauty, but it was covered up pretending to be something it was not. For many years, people who were here did not respect what it was. So I began to do what I felt the house asked for, which was not to try to be something it is not, but to accept what it is. And what it is is a 500-year-old house that is proud and comfortable with itself. "I am old and I don’t want to change or try to be something I am not. Don’t make me new. Make me real,” the house said to me. So a relationship began. “What do you want?” I would ask, and it told. Sometimes we would fight. Sometimes we laughed. Sometimes it seemed like we would never get along. But we never quit, and we bonded and became friends.
I wanted this room to feel luxurious, like a romantic getaway with beautiful details. The sleeping area is tucked away behind a wall of white curtains that you can close to create the feel of even more privacy. You enter the bed by stepping onto a tiered mosaic platform, which I created with bits of tiles I salvaged from around the house, some 100 years old. When you lie down, you sink into a cushion of pillows — some goose down, some thick memory foam. The windows I made by hand, and when you open them, you look down into the courtyard garden, hear the chirping birds, and feel the orange-blossom-scented breezes of Sevilla. The window seat doubles as a chest, where you can store your luggage, and a closet has been cut into the thick, 500-year-old stone walls — all created by hand.

The house is three stories of 500-year old Spanish history and is open air in all the common areas. Sit in the courtyard garden and enjoy your tea or coffee while listening to the trickle of the fountain. Relax in a shady nook and read a book or write a postcard. Enjoy a restful bath with candles and bath salts after a long day exploring the town. Cook a meal in the rustic style, well-equipped kitchen. Take in the beautiful sunshine and orange-blossom-scented air of Sevilla on the rooftop terrace. The room you rent is your own private area, but the whole house is yours to explore and enjoy.
