Why we like it

Direct flights have now made Seville the ideal city for a short break – ideal, as it is relatively compact whilst priding itself on its strong cultural identity. Think flamenco, sangria, tapas, Moorish architecture and royal palaces; Andalucia in a nutshell. The area is also home to one of our favourite boutique hotels, Hacienda de San Rafael, who know us well and will warmly welcome any Steppes guests. Their sister property is in town, should you wish to be in the thick of it or enjoy cityscapes from the rooftop terrace.

Our travel experts can tailor this itinerary to suit you.

A Sense of Seville

The stylish and scorching city of Seville is the capital of Andalucia. Also known as ‘The Frying Pan of Spain’, it enjoys arguably the strongest cultural identity in the entire country. It is the artistic, historic and cultural capital of southern Spain, and is the closest you are likely to get to Andalucia in a nutshell.

I've never felt better-taken care of by a tour agency.


Sara in Seville was a great, very good idea to have the bicycle tour!


A well-chosen itinerary; good hotels and a good car made for a thoroughly enjoyable ten days' holiday.


We usually book our own holidays but found your service super-efficient and will definitely book through you in future.

When to travel

The best time to visit Seville is from March to May. During these months the temperatures are mild, the rush of tourist traffic hasn’t reached summer volume and the hotels tend to offer lower rates. Experience Orthodox Easter,  Semana Santa and Feria de Abril at this time of year.  Summers in Seville are best avoided as the temperatures often exceed 35 degrees. September and October are very attractive, however with less daylight. The winter months experience rather high rainfall although still humid, the temperatures are generally still mild.
