By | 24 April, 2023 | 0 comments

The Feria of Seville is indisputably one of the world’s most eye-catching festivals. Colour, joy, music and fun are the name of the game in Seville for a week. That said, maybe you prefer to relax and take it easy? Experience a relaxing Feria de Abril at our Hospes hotel in Seville.

A full-on fiesta

From the Night of the Lighting (alumbrao) at the start of the Feria and the traditional meal of fried fish onwards, a whirlwind of activities and events is unleashed. The Feria de Abril in Seville is synonymous with excitement, dancing, physical exertion, laughter, fun and other excesses. The fairground turns into a mini-city in its own right. There is so much fun to be had, but the hustle and bustle and all the revelry can get a bit much at times.

That’s why more and more people are opting for a more relaxed Feria de Abril. This doesn’t mean turning your back on this authentic Seville tradition in the slightest. It’s more about unwinding and making the most of these days of celebration to recharge your batteries, relax and enjoy some alternative experiences.

With this in mind, Hotel Hospes Las Casas del Rey de Baeza is the perfect choice. You’ll feel pampered and inspired in its tranquil, comfortable ambience with so many services to enjoy. Whether you’re alone or in good company, these periods of calm will take your enjoyment to a new level.

Some of our guests, in fact, spend the whole festival period in the hotel. Their decision is to experience the Feria de Abril in a relaxed way. Others combine both alternatives. Treating yourself to a few days of tranquility before or after living it up in the marquees is an idea as magical as the lanterns lighting up the city.

Overseas visitors love this prospect too. A break in our hotel at this time of the year is like enjoying a brioche filled with ice cream – you pass from cool to heat in an instant. Experience the Feria de Abril in all its intensity and recover in the comfort of your hotel. Have you been won over by this idea?
