HOUSE IN THE ALBAICÍN GRANADA

Bedrooms 2

Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights

Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Granada - Hemingway

2 bedrooms, views, wifi, free parking, outside teraza, cable TV, 2 person bath.

The Space

This is a home from home and I want you to be feel completely at home when you stay here. The house is on three floors: there are stairs up from the entrance gate to the first patio with the jasmine pergola and the front door. The bedrooms and bathroom are on the first floor and the one the second floor, there is the lounge, kitchen and sun terrace. I really like cooking and entertaining so the kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven, hob, dishwasher and normal cooking utensils, plates, glasses, fridge/freezer, etc. and also a washing machine. There is a table and chairs where you can eat outside in the summer months.

Guest Access

With the exception of the top terrace (staircase locked with a key), guests have access to the whole house. It is yours for the duration of your stay and I want you to feel at home when you are here.

Interaction with Guests

Personally when I go on holiday, I prefer to be left to my own devices to settle in and explore the place at my own pace. Basically, I want you to feel at home and so I will leave you alone. However, having said that, I am always available 24/7 at the end of a phone to solve any problems you may have, to offer advice, recommend places to go, organise taxis, etc. I will also provide you with detailed arrival instructions which will explain how to get to the house without any problems as I know just how to difficult it is to drive through Granada because of the one-way and restricted resident traffic systems. I am not very good at cleaning and so I prefer to employ a cleaner who will do it better than me. This is the woman who will also meet you and show you the house. I look forward to seeing you soon and hope that you will enjoy 'mi casa y barrio' as much as I do.

The Neighborhood

What can I say? I might be biased but I think this is the perfect neighbourhood. It is a short walk up to the Plaza Larga where are still traditional small, local shops, small supermarkets, a bread shop, a daily vegetable market and a flower market on Saturdays. If you fell like eating out, there are plenty of tapa bars and restaurants, and squares where you can sit out, enjoy a drink and just people watch. For that really special occasion, there are also some fantastic restaurants set in some of the old carmenes in the Albaicín. There is even a restaurant with gardens where you can see a flamenco show while you eat.

On the other hand, walking down the hill, you quickly come to Calle Elvira with its lively nightlife and the Gran Via (the main thoroughfare of Granada). This is where the modern centre of Granada starts.

Getting around

Granada is such a small city, the best way to get around is on foot. If you do come by car, it is possible to park directly outside or near the house.

However, 50 metres down from the house there is a bus stop where you can catch the 31 circular bus which links the centre of Granada and the Albaicín or the 32 bus which goes up to the Alhambra. There have been various changes to the bus system in recent months but they have just said that these two buses will be reinstalled.

Taxis are also cheap in the centre of Granada.

Other Things to Note

The heating uses an automatic system which can be controlled via internet. It should always be warm when you arrive. If at any moment you feel cold just phone me and I will put it onto full power immediately. (10 000 watts) There is no reason for anyone to be cold no matter what the weather.
