Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Granada - El Ladero Grande

3 bed, 2 bath (sleeps 2-8).Tourist Board endorsed.Trip Advisor Excellence Award

El Ladero Grande is perfect and economical for couples, families or groups of friends and offers both indoor and outdoor space in which to play, relax or simply enjoy the sun and stunning mountain views. We listen to ALL of our client feedback and strive to continue offering the same excellent value and fabulous holiday experience - perhaps the reason that some people come back to us year after year! Be our guests and begin your holiday with a drink on us - with complimentary wine and tapas on arrival (juice and biscuits for smaller visitors) while you take in the panoramic views. To check the rates for your stay, just click the 'BOOK NOW' button - or enquire direct - we are happy to answer any and all questions about the property or the area. El Ladero Grande waits to welcome you!

The property offers sun-filled, spacious, and welcoming accommodation, soaring views, great little eateries to discover within strolling distance, majestic nature and outdoor possibilities all around in the Sierra Nevada National Park, and beautiful historic Granada on the doorstep. We are endorsed by the Andalucian Tourist Board and many returning customers and positive client feedback have helped to win us a Trip Advisor Award for EXCELLENCE for 2 years running.

Having listened to what our customers want, our tariff is based directly on our overheads per occupant, in order that couples and smaller groups enjoy fair discounts from the full occupancy rate. The apartment therefore represents great value - whether for 2 people or 9! Rates showing are the base rate for 2 people, additional guests at just 3 euros per night.

This large, well-furnished and family friendly apartment enjoys beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada mountains (dual aspect windows and French Doors in the living and dining areas give this space literally 'wraparound scenery'). On the practical side, the price includes central heating in winter, air-conditioning in summer, secure parking, Satellite TV, high standard of furnishings & equipment.There is free community wifi in the village (easily accessible from bars and restaurants in the centre) - but as we are not able to always guarantee reception in the apartment, we have also installed an additional high speed mifi unit which guests can top up easily if they wish (10 euros of credit gives 750 Mbs of data). The village is a fabulous year round location for both summer holidays and winter skiing and El Ladero Grande offers a relaxed, comfortable home-base from which to enjoy everything that this richly diverse region has to offer.

We also provide an extensive DVD library, books and games, plus a pool/snooker table for family fun and some equipment for smaller visitors (please tell us at the time of booking if you need our 'toddler pack' with cot, highchair seat adaptor, or an additional Z bed for a child in the master bedroom). The village itself is very child friendly - all of the restaurants welcome children and there is also a lovely new play park.

Accommodation details:

The apartment has a large master suite (with double bed), which opens onto the lovely terrace. The second bedroom also has a double bed and the third is equipped with twin beds. For even larger groups there is also a quality double sofabed in the spacious living room. There is a well equipped kitchen, and two bathrooms (an en-suite to the Master bedroom and a larger, family bathroom).

The private terrace has ample space for airy dining and lounging amid the lovely mountain views (guests particularly like our fabulously comfortable 'daybed'). It is also equipped with a large garden table and chairs, loungers, and a BBQ. The covered section of the terrace has the games area with pool table.

The location is only 20 mins from Granada/Alhambra Palace and about 25 mins from the ski resort. The pretty coves of the Costa Tropical are also within easy reach with 45 mins - with some great 'chiringuitas' where you can eat fresh fish right on the beach. The traditional white village of Guejar Sierra itself has great tapas bars, restaurants, local shops, pharmacy, bank and two lovely pools in summer. Our friendly keyholders are happy to give advice and can help organize chef services, tapas tours, hiking, biking, horse-riding, canoeing, treasure hunts for children and babysitting.

Guejar Sierra is also famous for its cherries - so just ask our keyholders if you wish to sample some local, organic, cherry jam!

Sierra Nevada ski resort:

The apartment is ideally placed for skiing at Pradollano (Sol y Nieve Ski Resort) in the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada boasts the highest downhill runs in Europe as well as being the most southerly - so it often enjoys better snow than the Alps. The resort - with its superb services and installations was built for the Winter Olympics and 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. The resort is so far south that the climate is superb for brushing up on your tan and on clear days there are views of Africa from the top!

AFFORDABILITY

Competitive pricing based on number of occupants not size of property (ie: smaller groups mean smaller overheads in terms of laundry/electricity etc - we onpass these savings to the customer in order to offer the best value for a property of this size and standard).

For larger groups of friends wishing to travel together - we can rent El Ladero Grande together with El Ladero Pequeno - the 1 bedroomed apartment next door, or with a choice of 2 bedroomed apartments in the same building.

GETTING TO US & GETTING AROUND

We are happy to share advice on flights/routes/timings/car hire etc which we have found to be cheapest.

Guejar Sierra is great base for visiting Granada and has an excellent bus link so - depending on the type of holiday you envision - car hire may not be necessary.

NEW FOR 2013

Handy cheap ski hire (inc magnetic ski carrier for car) and/or transport up to the ski lifts now available right from the village. Please ask for further info. Same company offers horse-riding and mountain bike hire in summer.

I have been associated with the Granada holiday rentals and property business for the past decade and have worked with a portfolio of many different properties in the Granada area over that period. I know the region intimately - and have written about it and discussed it at length on my website, blog and a Channel 4 documentary. I remain as enthusiastic about it today as the first time I visited. I genuinely enjoy sharing that knowledge and enthusiasm with visitors and am happy to answer questions and offer local tips - so please feel free to ask!

I have owned several properties in the area and have substantially rebuilt and renovated 4. However this particular property - El Ladero Grande - is my favourite and is the one I bought to keep.

El Ladero Grande has always been been popular with guests, with some loyal customers returning at the same time, year after year. Its important to me that visitors enjoy their stay. I believe in listening to what customers want and I always strive to offer the best combination of high standards and good value. The excellent feedback and 5 star ratings the property has received on Trip Advisor - have contributed to an Award for Excellence for the past two years running.

No matter whether your tastes run to skiing Spain's most southerly ski resort, hiking or biking in the Sierras, discovering the local culture and cuisine, exploring historic Granada, improving your Spanish, learning a new skill such as flamenco dancing, or simply enjoying lunch by a lovely pool – I am happy to advise and help you to make the most of your stay.

Whatever holiday experience you wish to enjoy in Granada – please get in touch.

Denise Guest purchased this apartment in 2005

I had been looking for the right Granada property for my family for a long time - and I chose this apartment because of its glorious views and natural surroundings; its position in the spectacularly situated white village of Guejar Sierra (with some truly great tapas bars and restaurants); and its convenience for the historic city of Granada, the world famous Alhambra Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the Sierra Nevada ski resort.

El Ladero Grande is a lovely place to be whatever the season and is the perfect base for those who are seeking to combine a number of different elements into their holiday.

Güejar is a great base for a huge variety of activities - mountain biking, walks of all levels, climbing, canoeing, rafting, fishing, paragliding, horse-riding, winter skiing and summer fiestas. And all of this is only 20 mins from Granada - a great place to wander the tree-lined plazas, sample the tapas, listen to real flamenco and simply enjoy the traditional Spanish ambiance of this lovely city.

In an area of knock-out views - the view from the sun terrace and living room of this property still manage to stand out from the crowd!

I bought the property off-plan, but even half-finished and unplastered, I fell in love with it the moment I first stepped into the huge, sunlit space of the living room with the panoramic vista of the mountains sweeping around it. There were initially only the French doors and the windows at the front - but realising that the apartment was fortuitously situated on the corner of the building, I asked the developer to add the side windows and doors to really bring the mountains into the apartment. We also added central heating and air conditioning to the original plans, to ensure that the apartment is comfortable and a great place to be in any season.

Above all, this is a place to relax. Beautifully and comfortably furnished - El Ladero Grande is a romantic getaway for couples and has been the venue for more than one honeymoon. But it's great for families too - large enough for teenagers to enjoy their own space, and simple, safe and practical enough for toddlers.

Its a fantastic base for going out and exploring Granada or enjoying a day on the mountain - and its also a great place for staying in and topping up your tan on the sunny terrace, or simply watching the sun set behind the mountain while you enjoy a long tall glass of something.

The little village of Güejar Sierra, with its cobbled streets and flower draped balconies is something of an undiscovered gem - a well kept Spanish secret. This is where the local Granadinos come to enjoy the best of all that the Sierra Nevada can offer.

Great stay in Guejar Sierra - lovely apartment

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Nov-2009
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2009
Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. Guejar Sierra is a great location for seeing the Sierra Nevada and the local people are very friendly. The apartment was lovely - comfortable and well-equipped and beautifully decorated. We really appreciated the fabulous views across the valley and the regular bus service into Granada. We're sure we'll be back as we still have some unfinished business with the local walks! Both wish we were still there now! Thanks for all your help and advice and please pass on our thanks to Anita and Simon. Hope to be in touch with you again soon...possibly next year (Spring or Autumn). Sue and Nick

Owner's Response: Really glad that Sue and Nick enjoyed their stay. We offer a loyalty discount on full week bookings for returning customers, so hope to see them again for that return visit next year!

Just my kind of place

  • Review Submitted: 10-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
We loved the apartment and the town; what a great place. We felt like locals within hours and got to know quite a few of the town characters. If it made any sense, I would buy a place there, it was just my kind of place.
Thanks for sharing your lovely apartment. Rosie was super helpful.

Guejar Sierra is a traditional white mountain village with cobbled streets in a stunning location 20 min. East of historic Granada (Alhambra Palace) and 20 min. from the Sierra Nevada ski resort (Pradollano). Beautiful views abound everywhere & many local restaurants traditionally open up swimming pools in the summer or lakeside/riverside dining terraces overlooking the Rio Genil or the blue waters of the Canales Reservoir. Great family activity location, walks begin from the doorstep and there are also opportunities for mountain-biking, horse-riding, climbing, canoeing, paragliding. This is also a great base from which to explore historic Granada, with its beautiful Moorish buildings, Alhambra Palace & fascinating Moroccan bazaar. Costa Tropical Beaches - 45 min. Guadix caves - 35 min. Water Park - 20 min. Also great romantic getaway for couples with excellent restaurants, or just a place to relax, enjoy the welcoming Spanish atmosphere & while the day away with free tapas.

Other Activities: Sierra Nevada Ski Resort - 20 min., Alhambra Palace - 20 mins, Family Water Park at Cenes - 20 min.

Golf: There are now three golf courses in Granada and more within reasonable driving distance such as the one at Motril on the Costa Tropical 9 holes). The 18 hole Granada Club de Golf is signposted from Armilla. No reservations necessary. Clubs can be hired and if you play in the morning, the cost for 18 holes is approximately 20 Euro (more on Sundays and festivals).

Ski: Skiing is available at the Sierra Nevada ski resort. At over 9000 ft it is one of the highest resorts in Europe and can be reached from Guejar Sierra within 20 min. An international ski school is available on site. There are 70km of ski runs, 45 pistes (with more than enough variety to suit all levels), 300 snow machines and views of Africa from the top.

This is the most southerly ski resort in Europe and, while smaller than some of the other major European resorts, the facilities are considered top rate and it has therefore hosted numerous national and international ski events. With great family facilities on offer as well, Sierra Nevada defies many concepts associated with skiing. Located at barely a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean coast, it has practically guaranteed sunshine, the best spring snow conditions in Europe and is still reasonably priced compared to many of its European counterparts.
