Located in the Santa Cruz neighborhood–Seville’s former Jewish Quarter–and a few meters away from the Cathedral, Suites Machado offers six exclusive Suites that are housed within the walls of a 17th Century Mansion.
Recently restored, this project has respected the original elements and has shed new light on each detail while at the same time recuperating the beauty of this hidden jewel to bring together heritage and comfort. Major efforts have been necessary as well as materials that respect the environment and local economy.
This manor house welcomes guests with a beautiful entrance hall that isolates it from the outside world. Protected by an impressive double wooden door, the entry opens onto a lovely patio that is accessible through a stunning and intrinsically designed ornamental rot iron gate.
A marble fountain surrounded by plants crowns the elegant patio. Guests are welcomed by the murmuring sound of water that gives life to a poem by Antonio Machado. Both the walls and the main stairway boast marvellously decorated antique tiles by renowned manufacturer Mensaque; these tiles were produced using dry cord techniques. The majestic windows offer guests a warm welcome.
The roof-top solarium overlooks the Cathedral’s emblematic bell tower–known as La Giralda–and the tiled roofs and terraces of the Santa Cruz neighbourhood complete this wonderful mansion with six exclusive rooms of Machado Suites. The very name evokes two illustrious poets from Seville–Manuel and Antonio Machado–who were 20th century icons of Spanish culture.
It is a unique occasion to enjoy the experience of living in an authentic Sevillian mansion with all possible amenities, beauty and peacefulness of modern times.
The Light of Seville
Its thick walls and its traditional covered patio, with a modern, see-through glass dome for temperature control, enhance the micro-climate created. Such traits, typically found in local manors and mansions, bring light to the forefront to heighten the sound and coolness of the main fountain.
Fabiola Street frames its façade as if part of a post card thanks to its privileged location in the oldest part of Seville. The street of Arabic heritage is visible through the narrow, cobblestone pathway that was wisely projected centuries ago to make the most of the shadows.
