Cobbled streets lined
with orange trees, flamenco performances, the third largest
cathedral in the world, the beautiful palaces of the Real Alcázar -
there's a lot to see in this pretty yet compact Andalusian
Hotel Hospes Las Casa Del
Rey de Baeza is a short saunter from most of the main sights. Rooms
are simple yet stylish and centred, like all old houses in Seville,
around internal courtyards.
This is a city made for
ambling - between tapas bars (try El Rinconcillo near the hotel),
along those picturesque streets and around the gardens of Real
Visit in April for two of
the biggest festivals on the Spanish calendar - the crowd-drawing
religious processions of Holy Week and the April Fair, when the
partying goes on into the early hours.
WOW FACTOR: Relaxing with
a glass of cava by the rooftop pool.
FLIGHT TIME: 3 hours
WHEN TO GO: Spring,
GO: From £92 per night,
room only (www.hospes.com). Easyjet (www.easyjet.com)
flies from £30 one-way.
