Guest comments: Having just returned from Spain I thought I would drop you an email to tell what a fabulous time we had. The apartment was beyond our wildest expectations, and far better than anything we have stayed in previously. The view from the balcony is stunning. We made it up to Sierra Nevada on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day - the children played snowballs on Christmas Eve, then on Christmas morning while the turkey was cooking we went up again so that they could do some tobogganing (fresh snow had fallen overnight), then on Boxing Day we all went up yet again.
I thank you for making this one of our best Christmas', the attention to detail made all the difference.

'We had a great time in Guejar Sierra - everything was spot on. Apartment is lovely, everything we could need and with those fantastic views from the terrace. You can happily use me as testimonial's case for the apartment as I can't recommend it highly enough.'
My husband and I fell in love with Granada. The stunning views, fantastic food and history were hard to resist. We also love winter sports as well as relaxing by the beach and could think of no other place in the world where you can do both of these activities in the same day! We knew that in Guejar Sierra we really had found the perfect holiday location. A beautiful quiet village that was close to a historic vibrant city and within easy driving distance of a ski resort and beach. No matter what time of year we visited we would always have a fantastic holiday. Since purchasing the property our two fantastic children have been born and we can honestly say that the location is perfect as well for a family holiday. The village makes children very welcome and there are a couple of parks for them to play in too. Granada offers the best science park that we have ever been to and of course the beach is only 50 minutes away.
Clare Whelan purchased this apartment in 2007
We chose this property because it has probably the best views in the village. It is the top floor of a small and quiet building with uninterrupted vistas of the mountain and reservoir below. It is ideally situated only a couple of minutes from the village with its lovely cobbled streets and fabulous little bars. The village is traditionally Spanish with daily visits from the bread van, fish van and fruit van, just listen out for the pip of the horn from the van! However there are still lots of small shops to get your essentials if you miss the van service!! The village is only 20 minutes from Granada, a vibrant city with so much to offer. The world famous Alhambra Palace dominates the city and is a Unesco world heritage site. It is breathtaking and an absolute must if visiting the area. Granada also offers tree lined streets, quaint bars, fabulous restaurants and flamenco! The ski resort of Sierra Nevada is only 20 minutes from the penthouse and offers some of the best and sunniest skiing in Europe. The season is long and often starts in November and ends in May. But there are also so many other activities in the area including walk/treks, mountain biking, horse-riding and paragliding.
The penthouse is situated on the top floor of a small, quiet building that is built into the hillside. It has no adjacent neighbours and is very private. This ensures that you have a peaceful holiday in a stunning location. The terrace has wraparound views of the mountain range and is the perfect spot to enjoy a meal and a drink with friends or simply to relax with a book and cup of coffee. I am happy to help with all aspects of your holiday planning and I will be pleased to put my specialist knowledge to use, having worked in the travel industry for many years. Many of my guests visit year after year as it is very easy to fall in love with Guejar Sierra. Please feel free to ask any questions about the Mulhacen Penthouse in Guejar Sierra.
The accommodation was perfect - a great location with a wonderful view and a nice, easy trip to the Alhambra and Granada. The apartment is well appointed and the beds were comfortable. The park nearby was especially fun for our daughter. Totally recommend and we can see ourselves going back!
Thank you for a fabulous holiday in such a wonderful setting. The apartment was fantastic with everything that we could have wanted - (the fact that wi-fi was a bit dodgy was for us are real bonus as it meant the kids had to be away from social networking.) The view from the balcony was even better in real life and what we loved was that it was so quiet, even tho we were on the edge of the village/ We loved the village and finding different places to eat, and really enjoyed walking (and driving) down to the lake for canoeing and swimming. It was very hot and we had wondered if we would have missed a pool - well, one would have been great but the lake was a good substitute. Superb walking in the mountains and horse riding too. Rosie met us and showed us round - thank you! All in all a great holiday and a super place to stay.
Having driven to Granada from Malaga a couple of years ago, the journey was straightforward and your directions from the Granada to Guejar Sierra were spot on. Rosie met us in the hotel Juan Francisco before taking us down to the apartment where she talked us through everything we needed to know.
The apartment is fantastic - a real home from home - hardly needed to use the heating even though it was the middle of winter.
We tried some of Rosie's jam which was delicious - a nice touch having the jam to purchase after hearing about it.
The apartment is in a perfect position in the village - a short walk from all the amenities we needed.
Everyone in the village were very friendly and were very patient and understanding with my feeble attempts at speaking Spanish! We particularly enjoyed the tapas and service in the Juan Francisco hotel bar.
There is a lovely little gift shop just up from the square where we bought some lovely pottery whilst we were waiting for our takeaway pizza one night! The shopkeeper was brilliant and even gave us a lovely Sierra Nevada guide book.
After picking up our skis we took the very steep and winding short cut from Pradollano back to the apartment......not for the faint hearted especially as two of our group suffer from vertigo!! It couldn't have been that bad as we came back that way every day after that - although I wasn't as keen driving up as I was coming down!
Blue skies and sunshine for three of the four days we were skiing which was lovely. The snow was generally good but a few odd pistes were closed due to lack of snow.
It was a great experience skiing on New Year's Eve then going back to the village and celebrating New Year in the square with the locals.
We enjoyed it so much we have booked again - must remember to buy party hats and plenty of cava to take to the village square on New Year's Eve!
Would love to visit in summer too as the scenery is amazing,

We had a wonderful time in Guejar Sierra, one of the best so far. Looking at your pictures we knew it would be stunning but nothing prepared us for what we saw, it’s so much more beautiful in reality. Views from the terrace are truly amazing and the village is absolutely charming and has a great atmosphere to it. Add to that the friendliness of the people and local delicacies to enjoy and it is a truly perfect combination. Rosie gave us a warm welcome and also a wee tour round the village (and a jam sample!) and was very helpful throughout our stay. The penthouse is very comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy your stay, we liked it a lot. It is also a well situated base for a lot of sightseeing we did and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience real Spain without crowds of tourists around. I would have happily stay there for good and coming back was like waking up from such a nice dream. We’ll definitely be back!
Thanks very much,
Alex and Robert
Amazing apartment with a so beautiful view of the mountains.
Guejar Sierra is a typical village, with very nice people and everything that you need - and it takes only 20-30 min by car to go to Granada's center.
I would recommend this lovely place where I'll come back every time that I can !
This penthouse was everything we were looking for. If you want to get away from the tourists and be near the trails, Guejar Sierra is the perfect place to stay! Its a cute little town with a few restaurants and bars walking distance and great hiking is jsut around the corner. The owner and housekeeper was also extremely accomodating and provided us with some useful information. Definitely recommend it to others!
Located in the relaxing and welcoming village of Guejar Sierra, a traditional spanish village with cobbled streets, a town square and a handful of tapas bars. There are also a few excellent restaurants within walking distance,
some of which have outside terraces and swimming pools which can be used by its summer guests.
From the village the historic city of Granada and its Alhambra Palace can be reached in under 20 minutes. The ski slopes of Sierra Nevada can be reached in approx 20 minutes (via the new mountain road). The beaches of Costa Tropical can be reached in approx 50 minutes. Stunning walks of all levels begin literally at the doorstep. Other activities including horse-riding, mountain-biking, canoeing, fishing and paragliding are also available. If you prefer a more relaxing break it is easy to spend the day visiting the bars (many of which still honour the tradition of free tapas) in the village and watch the world go by.
Ski: The apartment is ideally based for skiing at Europe's most southerly ski resort-Pradallono, Sierra Nevada. It is approx 25 mins away.
Sierra Nevada, which means 'Snowy Mountain Range', includes some of the highest peaks in Europe not to mention the highest concentration of peaks over 3,000m in the country. The Mulhacen, at 3482m, is Spain's mainland highest.
The ski resort of Sierra Nevada offers its visitors a wide range of facilities and a ski terrain to suit skiers & boarders of all standards. There are 70km of ski runs, 45 pistes and 300 snow machines guaranteeing snow on the slopes. There is also night skiing by floodlight!
As one of Europe's highest resorts it has a surprisingly long season and traditionally opens at the end of November running through to the end of April or even into the first week of May.
An important factor is that you are practically guaranteed sunshine throughout your stay! The resort is so far south the climate is superb for brushing up on your tan!
