Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Granada

Beautifully furnished 3 bedroom apartment. Sleeps 6. 5 min walk to Plaza Nueva.

A 3 bedroom executive apartment set on the first floor of beautifully restored 16th century carmen. The apartment is in a sought after and peaceful location in the oldest and most attractive district of Granada known as the Albaycin. It is in the very lowest part of the Albaycin and so is extremely convenient for the town centre. It is only 5 minutes walk to Plaza Nueva and just a few footsteps to charming local shops, tapas bars and restaurants. You can walk to the Alhambra palace in just 10 minutes. Buses and taxis also regularly leave Plaza Nueva for the nearby Alhambra Palace. The apartment itself has been lovingly restored in 2007 using traditional materials and styles popular in local architecture. Features include traditional slate and clay tiles, exposed wooded beams, stylish Nazari pine doors and shutters, and tasteful Moorish style furnishings throughout. Despite its traditional feel the apartment still boasts the best in modern amenities including air-conditioning and heating, flat screen digital TV, DVD, free wifi, fully equipped kitchen. (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer, oven, kettle, crockery and utensils).

The apartment: The apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard throughout. The style is traditional in keeping with the architectural features of the building and Moorish influences. It is also very comfortable and has all the modern amenities. The whole property is very light and airy with high ceilings and exposed wooden beams in the bedrooms and bathroom. There are traditional wooden shutters throughout which block out the light completely for a very sound nights sleep or can be flung open on a sunny day. Thick walls and tiles serve to keep the apartment cool on a hot day but there is also reverse cycle air-conditioning for your comfort (which can heat as well as cool the apartment). There is an attractive shared internal courtyard in this restored 16th century carmen. Two of the three bedrooms have private balconies which face onto a quiet street, have stunning fiews of the Alhambra opposite, and are not overlooked. The third bedroom has double doors opening to give views of the central courtyard and sky above.

Travel in Granada: The best way to travel around Granada is on foot or by bus and taxi. The nearest taxi rank is in Plaza Nueva, 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Buses also leave from nearby Cathedral for the city, central bus station and airport. The nearest airport is Granada Jaen which is 30 minutes by taxi or 45 minutes by bus. A taxi to Plaza Nueva should cost 25 Euros. The reliable airport bus will take you from Granada airport to the Cathedral for 3 Euros. Malaga airport is 90 minutes by taxi. Driving is less convenient and there is little parking in the city centre except in multi-storey subterranean pay and display carparks. The Albaycin itself is largely inaccessible by car due to its narrow cobbled streets - it is a unesco world heritage site and tourist attraction built long before the car was invented! The nearest car parks (parking san jeronimo and parking severo ochoa) are just 5 minutes on foot and cost from 10 euros per day/ 42 euros per week. It is well worth the 5 minute walk from the car parks because it is the most central part of the old town and the only area from which you can reach all the attractions and amenities on foot. We can provide more details on these nearby car parks if you do decide to bring your car to granada. We will also provide a detailed map and directions to guide you from the Cathedral bus stop or Plaza Nueva to the apartment (5 minutes walk).

Local amenities and activities: The owners can recommend some lovely places to eat and drink or you can enjoy exploring on your own. Either way we are sure you will find some wonderful tapas and dining experiences in Granada. Granada is one of the few regions of Spain where free tapas is still served with your drinks. Seafood is a local speciality but a wide range of delicacies is available. The nearest supermarket to buy food is El Corte Ingles, about 10 minutes walk. There is also a wealth of stylish clothes and shoes stores in the city centre. There is a nearby ski resort with the stunning Sierra Nevada just 45 minute drive away, accessible by bus or taxi. You can ski on up to eight different pistes while enjoying views of the Mediterranean sea. On a clear day it is possible to see as far as the coast of North Africa. There are also 2 18 hole golf courses within 30 minutes drive (city of Granada and Santa Clara golf clubs). Other activities include walking, cycling and horse riding in the mountains.

About Anita and Shaun Goff

English/Australian couple with 2 small children. Love the Granada food and wine. Can give lots of recommendations! Have learnt some Spanish during our time in Granada. Granada is a great place to practice your language skills as people are very friendly.

Anita and Shaun Goff purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Anita and Shaun Goff chose Granada

We fell in love with our apartment when we first saw it! We loved its traditional charm and moorish features. The area is so peaceful and yet there are so many lovely taps bars, cares and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Plus beautiful views. Our children have been visiting Granada since they were born so it is very special to us. It is a very family friendly place and also very authentic. We have furnished the apartment to our own high standards so that both ourselves and our guests can enjoy it as a home from home. We think that it is very comfortable and well equipped as well as beautifully decorated. We hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we have.

What makes this apartment unique

Just 5 minutes walk to town and 10 minutes walk to Alhambra palace. Lots of local amenities. Great air conditioning and fully fitted kitchen. 3 comfortable bedrooms with authentic antique furnishings. Fantastic area buzzing with life - cafes, tapas bars, flamenco, arts, souvenirs and a convenience store within a few hundred metres. Despite this it is a very peaceful apartment as it is set back in a small side street. Balconies aren't overlooked and have views of the Alhambra palace. There is also a cool inner courtyard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The stay has been amazing and the apartment perfect I will book again as I wish to come back to granada a few times this year on my own.

A Great Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay in this charming apartment. It was stylish and well equipped.
We loved the views of the Alhambra palace from our balcony. The location was perfect for strolling around the old town. We could reach everywhere we needed to on foot.
The Albayzin is a bit of a maze of winding cobbled streets so come prepared with a map! Thankfully we were given an information pack with maps and recommendations on the best places to eat out. We particularly enjoyed the cafe which Anita recommended which is just around corner. We would love to visit again and will highly recommend this place to our friends :)

an authentic apartment with character and charm

  • 5 out of 5
an authentic apartment full of charm and character.
the setting allows you to experience the most of this charming city. a relaxing apartment with beautiful views of the Alhambra (an essential visit and highlight of the holiday) with a wonderful little cafe 1 minute round the corner - perfect for coffee or food anytime of the day. many lovely restaurants in the town (and easy walking distance) with most offering free tapas with drinks, i found the town very safe and the locals wanting to help us make the most of our time there and helped develop our Spanish.
the apartment was spotlessly clean, and well set out for family's/couples or friends to stay. the lounge room enables social time together and the board games, TV and extras provided were a bonus.
i would highly recommend this apartment for a holiday destination and cannot wait to return.

Could have been better

  • 2 out of 5
Was looking forward to a great stay but was disappointed. Actual apartment very nice and clean but several things not in working order or at least was unable to get anything working and stove kept beeping and could not turn off for entire visit so very annoying. Booking with owner very easy but as owner not in town, hard to get things fixed in timely fashion. Recommend you bring your own amenities like soap, laundry detergent, etc.

Place is hard to find but once you figure it out, easy though a bit of a climb and in area where cars and taxi not allowed but this is a plus to some and a minus to others but would not recommend to seniors. From previous reviews, it appears everything was great so this may have been a one off as host seemed concerned and tried to be helpful but without a contact person in town, not much can be done if something goes wrong.

Would not recommend or return but hopefully this was just an unusual visit.

Owner's Response: We were glad that you appreciated the apartment itself which is beautiful, and that you found it to be clean. We always provide a small supply of laundry detergent, dishwasher tablets, soap and toilet paper for your arrival although you may need to purchase further supplies if you are staying more than a couple of days and need to do a lot of washing. All towels and linen are laundered at the end of your let at no extra charge and there are extra supplies in the linen cupboard. We were sorry to hear that you had some issues using the oven - it beeps as a safety feature if there is something left on the hob or if the hot plate is left on accidentally. Our agent has checked out the apartment and the hob seems to be in full working order with no further complaints from subsequent guests. So perhaps this was the cause. The oven may be different to ones you have at home (we have guests from all around the world) but we do have some instruction manuals available for the electrical appliances which are kept in the kitchen. We are always happy to be contacted by phone or email if there are any problems with the apartment.

Amazing family stay in Granada - Spain

  • 4 out of 5
Our family stayed in this beautiful 3 bedroom apartment in the heart of Albayzin. The description of the place describes the apartment perfectly. One of the main bedrooms has a beautiful view of the Alhambra which you can wake up to every morning and it is only 5 min walk to the Plaza Nueva.

Being so central in the Albayzin quarters you can stroll the cobble stone street of Granada at your leisure and at your own pace. There are plenty of lovely places to eat out and the apartment is fully equipped if you decided to stay at home. 5 mintes walk up the hill we found plaza San Miguel which was recommended for it's restuarants that are reasonably priced which were fantastic. This plaza is also the plaza where you catch the local buses and tram/train to the Alhambra.

Anita was easy to communicate with and provided plenty of information. The apartment also had some brochure and recommended restaurants, which was handy.

Our family would have no hesitation in recommending Anita and geoff's place in Granada for anyone considering a visit to this beautiful area of Spain. We would happily stay here again should we ever return to Granada.

Thanks for a wonderful stay. Stephen & Cherie

Lovely aprtment

  • 4 out of 5
A lovely and well equipped apartment and Anita was very helpful, but be prepared for the 10 minute steep climb up cobbled stones with your luggage, as the area is not accessable by car. We parked in the nearest local car park, which is 15-20 minutes walk away, but after getting lost, it took us nearly 1 hour to find the apartment in what is a maze of buildings. I would happily have paid extra to have been met and taken directly to the apartment.

Stunning apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
This is the third time that I have been to Granada and my second time at this villa. The villa is comfortable and clean. The decor is traditional in style and tastefully considered by the British owners.

There a few little bars and cafes nearby and it is a short stroll down the hill in to the city centre. It is easy to access the World Heritage Site from here. This is one of the main reasons why tourists visit the area, but I would also advise that visitors spend some time in modern Granda itself. I personally enjoy sitting in a tapas bars in one of the secluded squares watching the hours tick by...

Owner's Response: The tapas bars in the city centre are indeed superb! most serve free tapas dishes with your drinks. We provide an information pack with maps and a list of recommended restaurants and bars for our guests to enjoy. Our personal favourite is Puerto del Carmen (located just 5 minutes walk from the apartment, in Plaza del carmen next to the town hall). There are a couple of streets leading if the Plaza which are packed with characterful bars which are popular with locals and tourists alike.

This 3 bedroom apartment with free wifi is set in the Historic Moorish area called the Albaicin. It is the oldest district of Granada and a UNESCO world heritage site and is made up of wonderful old buildings and narrow cobbled streets. It is set on a gentle hillside but our apartment is in the lowest part and so is much more convenient for the city centre and Alhambra than those higher up. It is just 5 minutes walk down a gentle slope to Plaza Nueva. The Alhambra Palace is set on the hillside opposite the Albaycin and is stunning, especially when lit up at night. There is a park near the apartment where you can sit and take in the views, or perhaps paint or take photographs of the Palace. The apartment is in a very peaceful side street which does not get much foot traffic and is too narrow to be bothered by passing cars. Despite this it is jut a couple of minutes by foot to the many local bars, cafes, Arabic bazaars and even venues hosting flamenco, jazz and local art.

Other Activities: Alhambra Palace, museums, art galleries, excellent shopping, local bazaars, tapas bars, restaurants, Flamenco, Jazz, Art galeries
