The Spanish city of Cádiz sits on a long peninsula in the south-west of the country, and offers holidaymakers both spectacular beaches and a fascinating historic centre. Filled with typical-style white-and-yellow Andalusian architecture, narrow shady streets and cute plazas, it’s sure to charm any visitor. Here’s our pick of the seven best Airbnbs to stay in while here.
This clean and bright modern apartment may be around 40-minutes’ walk into the centre of Cádiz, but makes up for it as it’s located right on the beachfront and comes complete with the most incredible sea views. The apartment sleeps six, with one double room and one with two sets of bunks, so it’s ideal for a large family. It features a fully-equipped kitchen and two bathrooms, but by far the best feature is its private balcony with sea view.
This beautifully-decorated loft sits in the historic centre of the city, just a few minutes’ walk from Cádiz Cathedral. It can sleep three, but has just one double bedroom, so would be great for a couple on their own or with one small child. The loft has a lovely big open-plan living room and kitchen, filled with modern art and decorative Moroccan elements. Its most unique feature is the spacious slate-clad shower, from where a ladder comes down and you can climb up onto your own private roof terrace, complete with cathedral views.
This stylish and modern apartment is housed in a renovated 19th-century villa and is set around two patios, with outdoor seating and potted plants. Located near the Alameda waterfront gardens in the historic centre, it sleeps four guests, in one double room and two single rooms. It could be ideal for families with teens who need their own space, as well as bringing the family together in the cosy living room and extension of the patios. It also offers a huge bathroom with walk-in rain shower and a fully-equipped kitchen.
This beautifully-designed apartment is located in an old traditional building, right in the historic centre of the city. It lies just steps from the magnificent Plaza Falla with its Moorish-style Grand Theatre. The apartment sleeps six in three bedrooms, and also offers a baby crib for free. It’s stylishly decorated, with polished wood floors, painted wooden rafters and artwork on the walls. It’s also spacious with one big lounge and a separate kitchen and dining area.
It’s not the inside of this apartment that makes it one of the best Airbnbs in Cádiz, it’s the spectacular, large roof terrace with cathedral views. Located near Plaza Candelaria, in the historic centre, it sleeps just two people in one double room, so it’s perfect for couples. It’s housed inside a beautiful historical building with class corridors and a palatial entrance hall filled with plants and marble. Inside you’ll find clean-cut lines and modern kitchen, while on the huge terrace you’ll find plenty of furniture to relax on, as well as amazing city views.
This three-floor apartment is located in its own tower, right off Plaza San Francisco in the heart of the historic centre. Just a couple of minutes’ walk from the elegant Convent of San Francisco, an array of cute restaurants and cafés and the Archaeological Museum. It sleeps two to three guests, with a kitchen/lounge and sofa bed on the first floor, a bedroom on the second floor and a beautiful terrace on the roof, offering jaw-dropping city views all the way to the harbour.
As the name suggests, this modern apartment in the historic centre does have a spectacular outdoor terrace. It sits just 50 metres from Plaza de San Antonio and lies within walking distance to many of the main attractions. Its bright and modern inside can sleep two in the one double bedroom, or four with two on the sofa bed in the lounge. There’s a fully-equipped kitchen and lounge in one, but of course the highlight is the beautiful terrace with table and shaded area for relaxation.
