BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN TRANQUIL ALBAICIN LOCATION, WITH GARDEN, PATIO AND PARKING

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Granada - Beautiful House in Albaicin

Tasteful & Spacious, with shared pool, perfect for families & friends all year

Located on the edge of the Albaicín, the ancient Moorish quarter, Casa Mina is a delightful house and garden set in a relaxing environment. Beautifully decorated, with a bright and comfortable sitting room, separate dining room and fully equipped kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it sleeps up to 7 people. It is minutes from the famous Plaza San Nicolas and a short walk through the cobbled lanes of this ancient district brings you to the unique cave bars of Sacromonte. Exploring the maze of winding lanes further brings you into the heart of the city with its many shops, bars and restaurants and, by foot or by bus, to the breathtaking Alhambra Palace itself. Casa Mina is also within minutes of magnificent countryside - a 15 minute drive takes you to Granada’s spectacular National Park, Sierra de Huetor - and is within easy driving distance to beautiful coastline, breathtaking mountain ranges and,of course, the snow topped Sierra Nevada and its fabulous ski slopes in winter.

Coast/Beach, Golf and Skiing: The Costa Tropical of Granada province is only 50 minutes by car (take the A-44 to Motril) and boasts numerous picturesque beaches and coastline including the pretty village of Salobrena and Almunecar, a resort town with many attractive beaches. A little further to the west is La Herradura, famous for crystal clear waters, and excellent watersport facilities, the Punta de la Mona cove (ideal dive site) and Marina del Este yacht harbour, and just beyond, is the naturist beach, Playa Cantarrijan.

Two 18 hole golf courses are within thirty minutes of the property.

The Sierra Nevada Ski resort, which is located 32 km from the centre of Granada and is only a 45-minute drive from the property, has five months of snow with the ski season normally lasting from the beginning of December until the end of April or beginning of May. It has 61km of ski slopes with 45 pistes and 6 off-piste routes, 2 cable cars, 12 chair lifts and 5 ski lifts.

Airports and travel details: The nearest, increasingly popular airport is Granada international airport about 8km from the city. There are several bus services from the airport to the city centre, (then take a taxi to house), taxis (about 20 Euro) or, alternatively, you can hire a car - 20 minute drive to the house. Malaga international airport is still the main airport in the area; it is a 90 min drive to Granada by car (email for help with directions) or a bus ride away (hourly bus til 9pm from city bus station).

To the southeast are the Las Alpujarras chain of ancient villages including Trevelez (highest village in Spain, 90 minutes away), Yegen, Capileira, Lanjaron - the gateway to the Alpujarras and 30 min drive - and Orgiva. For these, take the A-44, direction Motril). Northwest of Granada, Moclin (35 kms) and Montefrio (65kms) are worth a visit, and southwest is Alhama de Granada (45 mins drive). The Sierra de Huetor National Park is 15 mins from the house, best accessed through Alfaca.

Guests Comments : We had a lovely week in your house in Granada. Your house was very comfortable and charming. We enjoyed immersing ourselves in Spanish life and culture. The position of the house enabled us to walk into the Albaycin (The Moorish quarter) to shop and to enjoy the outdoor nightlife in the lively plazas. We also hired a car for the week and drove into the Alpujarras and the Sierra Nevada. On other days we drove to the seaside at Nerja and Almunecar. Thanks to your excellent guides and information we were also able to visit Alhama and the children particularly enjoyed a day at Aquaola Water Park in Granada! (The Young Family, UK).

Granada was amazing and your house was heavenly. Thank you so much, we all had an amazing time. Every room was beautifully decorated and very stylish, perfect for a group of girls going away to relax and detox, although there wasn't much of that going on, we managed to fit so much in! (Laura, UK)

I fell in love with Granada and with Casa Mina. It was the perfect place for me and my son to live - so close to everything that is wonderful about Granada and also so peaceful and relaxing too. A modern house and all the ease that comes with that situated in such an ancient and historic place......not buying wasn't really an option for us and I'm so glad we did!

Highly recommended...

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Mina is a great place to stay. Close enough to all the highlights of Granada - all within walking distance - but being able to park your car right outside, meant even greater flexibility bringing even more choice on how to spend your day. You really can spend the morning skiing followed by an afternoon on the beach. The house is very easy to live in and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great play to stay in Granada.

The best option for a 7-group stay in Granada

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé un séjour inoubliable à Grenade (ville merveilleuse qui mérite d’être découverte, qui respire l’Andalousie) en profitant de tout le confort de l’accueillante maison de Richie et Holly (spacieuse, propre, toute aménagée, avec son joli jardin et sa proche piscine) située dans une zone qui surplombe le quartier historique de l’Albaycin, où la ville offre tout son charme ainsi que des vues imprenables. Un service impeccable !

We spent a wonderful stay in Granada (wonderful city which is worth to be seen and exudes the essence of Andalucia) enjoying all the comfort of Richie and Holly's homely house (spacious, clean, all equipped, with its nice garden and a close swimming pool) located in an area that dominates the historic Albaycin, where the city reveals all its charm as well as astonishing views. An impeccable service!

Hemos pasado una estancia maravillosa en Granada (fantástica ciudad que vale la pena descubrir y que respira Andalucía) disfrutando de toda la comodidad que ofrece la acogedora casa de Richie y Holly (amplia, limpia, todo equipada, con su bonito jardín y la cercana piscina) situada en una zona que domina el barrio histórico del Albaycin, donde la ciudad revela todo su embrujo así como increíbles vistas. ¡Un servicio intachable!

Lovely house and location in need of some TLC.

  • 3 out of 5
This is lovely spacious house, with easy parking and about a 10 minute walk from the Albaicin.This little suburb has astonishing views over the city and towards the west to the Alhambra.There is a useful bakery and little greengrocers a few minutes from the house,which provided us with all we needed for breakfast/lunch. The kitchen is well equipped with a very large fridge, dishwasher etc. The outside space is quiet and provides 2 sets of wooden furniture for eating either on the terrace or in the little garden. However we found the house needed some extra attention.The kitchen in particular was grubby and requires a deep clean.The garden also needs some paint work done and general gardening works.Most importantly the advertised air con. was not available and this impacted seriously on our enjoyment of our holiday.The house being modern with basement car park gets very hot and sticky and at nights we were unable to sleep.The owners assure me these difficulties will be sorted and the visitors' book has plenty of glowing reports.This is a good choice especially you want to cater for a family.

Great house for a great time

  • 4 out of 5
We rented it for a group of 6 adults. It's a great house, even if it's far from the center(highest part of Granada, plaza del Mexuar, amazing sightseeing). Clean, spacious (on 3 levels : 1 > garage, 2 > kitchen, dining room, living room, 3 > bedrooms and bathrooms) and a small garden really welcome with the weather we had. Thanks to the large living room and the garden, you can share great moments with your family or your friends.
We used the car every day but if you want to, you can easily get the bus or a taxi.

We really enjoy the swimming pool just two streets from the house. Just one thing which would have been great to know before : for those who rent it during the summer, there are just 5 pass for the swimming pool. So everybody can't go to the swimming pool at the same time.

This is a place to go both during the winter and the summer with a lot of things to do. Special mention to the grandma who cooked for us one night in Plaza St Nicolas !

I recommend this house : it is safe and the owner provide a booklet with all the information needed before your arrival + during your stay.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 out of 5
"Loved our stay at Casa Mina. It was airy, spacious and well equipped, and had a boho feel to the tasteful decoration. Would be excellent as base for touring as it has a garage beneath. Lovely courtyard garden which was very pleasant to eat our home styled tapas in.
Buses into the main centre were just a short distance away ;however we only used them a couple of times, because for the same price you could easily hail a taxi ( 5 Euros - as opposed to the bus, at 4.80 Euros for four of us).
The Albacin is a very short walk away - the wonderful St Nicolas Church with views of the Alhambra to die for was about 10 minutes away. There was a wonderful restaurant/bar just down from the church (Juan Ranas) which had the best view I have ever seen anywhere in the world, with tasty (but expensive) food. You could just go there for a drink - the service was absolutely excellent.
Thank you so much for a fantastic few days."

The house, although in a quiet location, is only 10 mins walk from the heart of the Albayzin, with its restaurants, pubs, colourful shops and cafes; the famous Mirador San Nicolas, with its stunning views of the Alhambra; and Sacromonte with its enchanting world of vibrant culture and Flamenco dancing. There is also a number of local supermarkets along with a daily local fruit and veg market nearby. Also on foot, the Alhambra palace is a 40 min walk while the city centre is 20 mins walk away. Casa Mina is also a 15 min drive from Granada’s spectacular National Park, Sierra de Huetor. There are the fabulous Sierra Nevada ski slopes, with their 5 months of snow only 45 minutes from the house, and during the summer, the picturesque beaches of the Costa Tropical are a 40 minute drive. To the southeast are the stunning chain of villages in the Alpujarra Mountains, beginning with Lanjaron (40 mins from house) and ending with Trevelez, the 2nd highest inhabited village in Europe.
