Lovely fist floor apartment in center of town, right in front of the Temple of Claudius Marcellus. Charming, elegantly furnished, poetic, in the middle of things. Lots of light, high ceilings and sparkling clean. 1 bedr. or full apt. when I am away.
Elegant one bedroom in/or full apt. 1291 sqfoot (ca 120 mq) overlooking the Roman Temple of Claudio Marcelo, at the very center of town (3 minutes from Plaza de las Tendillas), with perfect close views of the Semana Santa's processions (located at the start of "carrera oficial")
I have old furniture and paintings from my family and mix them with things I find around and call me up for a life journey.
Can rent the whole apartment (1 large bedroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and large sitting room) and be on your own when I am not home, or have your bedroom (2 beds/double bed) and bathroom, with breackfast included (B&B).
Second floor (US; first floor for the EU): whitewashed, very high ceilings, filled with light; antiques and art mixed with eclectic flair.
Composed of: 1 bedroom (2 twins or King size bed), 2 bathrooms, all equipped kitchen, 2 rooms which will remain closed (my bedroom and my studio) and a very big 15 mqsquares sitting room with 4 large Windows and one corner bay-window with balconies overlooking the carrera oficial of the Semana Santa's processions and the Temple of Claudio Marcelo.
The area is extremely safe, lively and full of places for tapas, and drinks. The apartment is located as a middle point between the Plaza de la Corredera and the Plaza de las Tendillas, in the "elegant" quarter of town and shopping zone, and at 5 minutes from the river walk, now reformed and transformed in a pedestrian park-walk with fancy and trendy restaurants and tapas bar.
Good restaurants nearby: Bodegas Campos, Casa Salinas, Fusion, Soho Fusion, Taberna del Rio, las Tinacas
My apartment is my home, it shelters all I found, loved, and took with me in about 12 years of travelling and working in the US and acrss Europe: antique family furnishing, art, books, etc. I ask you to enjoy it, and to please take good care of home as I am away.
In Cordoba you will not need a car unless you want to travel in the provincia: all is nearby, and it is a charming city to walk (just avoid walking out from 2 pm to 9 pm in the summer). If you need busses, a bus stop is right up the street and 2 taxi stands are at the bottom and top of the same street (Calle Claudio Marcelo). Some people rent bikes to bike along the river, but in summer you will prefer walking.
My home is special in that it is a very classic (old liberty building, with very high ceilings, large and tall wooden doors), eclectic, poetic and charming place, with one of the most impressive views in town as it overlooks the Roman temple of Claudio Marcelo through a big cristal bay-window which opens completely creating a sort of small greenhouse where I planted jasmins and plants.
I am an art historian, specializing in Renaissance and Baroque art, so there is an artistic touch to it.
The house has a dishwasher, a laudry machine (no dryer but a small patio where you can hang your laundry), air conditioning, telephone (please don't use it for international, only for local (Spain), otherwise I will have to reimburse the money through the deposit), and internet.
My help and cleaning lady Andrea will meet you at your arrival, give you 2 sets of keys (if a couple) and explain basics about the apartment. She will be available all time for extra ironing or cleaning if needed (she charges 10E an hour).
everything in town, I will also help them as turistic information as I am a professor of art history
Interaction with Guests
any time they need, by email or phone (I have a blackberry)
It is really central, but still very charming and old styled (the "new" centre is modern, ca. 1970's), it overlooks one of the beauties and has great atmosphere, since there are many bars around it is lively in the sitting room (you do not feel alone) but very quiet in the rooms (I installed silencing windows). My spot is really central and well located at 3 or 10 min to all turistic destinations. Still, it is one of the best views in town.
walking or biking
Other Things to Note
Sometimes (very often) I am not at home, so I leave the entire apt. for the same costs to the guests. I do not cover extra for having the full space. it happens quite often, especially when I am not teaching, july to december.
Please do not smoke I am a strict non-smoker and try to keep my home smell fresh and clean every day, and no pets unless previously agreed. My neighbours are kind and I never had problems with my guests.
Het appartement is heel persoonlijk, daardoor ook heel prettig om in te zitten. Sabine was zelf buiten de stad toen we arriveerden. We werden ontvangen door Andrea, die het appartement schoonhoudt. Zij spreekt alleen Spaans en dat maakt het moeilijk om elkaar goed te begrijpen en om afspraken te maken.
Sabine had van te voren al alle gebruiksaanwijzingen voor de kachels en andere zaken gestuurd, dus dat was geen probleem. Alles zag er keurig uit. het kijkt uit op de Romeinse tempel en het ligt op loopafstand van alle bezienswaardigheden. binnen 10 minuten ben je in de Mesquita en langs de rivier. Winkels rondom,
dus ontbijt is binnen een paar minuten geregeld met verse broodjes.
Andrea, Sabina's house keeper greeted us when we arrived to help us settle in and show us everything we needed in order to have a pleasant stay. She was very friendly and helpful.
The Apartment is located in a very vibrant area and convenient for walking and discovering the beautiful city.
We loved our visit to Cordoba!
Description parfaite, photos conformes à la réalité. Accueil très chaleureux en anglais et ensuite en français. Sabina semble être multilingue!
Lovely apartment, a beautiful place to stay, very centrally located. Superb large bed!
Sabina was kind and attentive, made sure where was a large variety of breakfast items, and gave us loads of tips on how to appreciate the art and culture of Cordoba.
We had a wonderful 4 days in Cordoba which was enhanced by the excellent advice provided by Sabina. The apartment is exactly as in the photographs and as described, the bedroom has a lovely big bed, air conditioning and double glazing to reduce street noise. A small but entirely adequate bathroom to ourselves and we used the lovely lounge area when Sabina was not there. The wonderful location of this apartment cannot be overstated everything we wanted to see was within a 15 minute walk. Grazie mille Sabina.
We had a really nice stay with Sabina in her lovely home. She gave us some good local information re sights, restaurants etc and made us feel welcome. The apartment is very well located and central to the sights and lane-ways of the old city. The room was very comfortable with air conditioning and nice big bed and linen. On our last night Sabina had quests over and she invited us to share in the meal and conversation -it was a really nice evening. An ideal place to stay in Cordoba!
Sabina has a wonderful apartment in a great area of Cordoba. Her place is beautifully decorated, very clean, and comfortable. She was accommodating and helpful, showing me where to go around the city and good places to eat and drink and is a lot of fun to talk to. I had a wonderful time with her and really recommend staying with her as she is a great host and an amazing person!
