Make a holiday apartment in Alhendin your home away from home

Alhendin holiday apartments are in a town just south of Granada, one of Spain’s cultural highlights, full of beautifully preserved architecture. The scenery around holiday homes Alhendin is also lovely, with the formidable peaks of the Sierra Nevada visible to the west, and plains with meadows and idyllic farmland to the east. It’s a setting for people who value culture and great food but also want the option of outdoor activities, from golf to hiking and even carefree days on the Costa del Sol beaches to the south. Apartments in Alhendin tend to be recent constructions, neatly equipped with facilities like wi-fi and modern domestic appliances.

Things to do

-Central Granada: This city has one of Spain’s best ensembles of historic buildings, all with a noticeable Moorish flavour. The Alcaiceria is the city’s former Moorish silk market, restored in the 19th century according to the original design. Granada’s magnificent Gothic and Baroque cathedral is from the 1500s, and is the second-largest in the country.  

-Alhambra: This wonderful palace and fortress complex is essential for anyone visiting Granada. It dates to Granada’s Moorish era, and was begun in the 9th century. Over the next 400 years it was gradually expanded. There’s much to see here, from the intricate Generalife gardens to the plush Palacios Nazaries and the ruins of the commanding Acazaba fortress, which has the best panoramas of the complex.

-Outdoor recreation: In winter, the Sierra Nevada – some 45 minutes away – has a ski season that lasts for several months. It’s the southernmost ski resort in Europe, but its maximum elevation of more than 3,000 metres means there’s always generous snowfall. Golfers don’t need to travel so far; Santa Clara is an 18-hole course a few minutes away, with fantastic views, and Granada Club de Golf is another fine option a couple of kilometres outside Alhendin.  

-Food and drink: Eating out in Granada is always a joy, as the tapas is of a very high standard and is often served complimentarily with drinks. Traditional local cuisine centres on hearty dishes like Migas, which is breadcrumbs fried with olive oil, garlic and mostly served with pork products.  

-Coast: Follow the A-44 down to the Mediterranean, where there’s a 20-kilometre series of magnificent beaches between Salobreña and Castell de Ferro. The beaches here are mostly natural in character and often feature archaeological fragments dating back to Moorish times. Torrenueva has two kilometres of coarse sand, bathed by calm, blue waters. Calahonda is a gorgeous Blue Flag beach forming a gentle curve and backed by cliffs and low-key developments.  

Weather in Alhendin

The climate around Alhendin holiday homes is Mediterranean, but with continental influence. The presence of the Sierra Nevada to the east also means that there’s snowfall close by in winter. Here, however, winters are soft, with highs of 13°C in January and temperatures that hover just above freezing at night. By May it’s starting to get warm and daily averages continue to rise through to August when they peak at 34°C. July and August bring almost no rain, but the other months of the year each get around six days of precipitation.

Travel to Alhendin

Alhendin is best accessed from abroad via Granada’s Federico García Lorca Airport (GRX). A relatively small airport, Granada is mostly oriented towards domestic travel but there are a couple of flight links with London. The airport is to the west of the city, and the car journey to a holiday rental in Alhendin will take about half an hour on the A-92 and A-44. Malaga Airport (AGP) is far larger than Granada and gets lots of traffic from the UK. It sits just under 90 minutes to the southwest on the A-45 and A-92 toll roads.

Spacious, comfortable Granada apartment.

5 of 5
We were very happy with the apartment and especially with our helpful hosts. Jose- Maria was not on site but replied very promptly to my queries on line and via email when we were en route.To greet us was his nephew Alvaro who had cleaned the apartment thoroughly and was very helpful when we had difficulty getting a taxi for the bus station on the last day. It was well equipped and we found the walk to all the sites easy enough. There were plenty of shops and restaurants around the apartment and we tried the Rhodri restaurant nearby as recommended by Jose- Maria. This was a busy,jolly, authentic tapas place frequented I think largely by locals, good fun and interesting food. I have read in the review that the apartment was tired, decor wise but I thought it was good value for money and very comfortable especially in February, it was warm as promised. We found everyone in the city helpful and the owner and his nephew were good examples of this. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to my friends. Alison & Bill Cumbria

A perfect city hideaway for two.

5 of 5
Our host Jesus was the most helpful owner I have encountered on OD. He kept in touch with us on landing at the airport and negotiated meeting places and timings when our arrival plans changed due to lost luggage and missed buses. He negotiated with the airline reps to ensure our luggage was safely delivered. I don’t know what we would have done without his assistance. The apartment is a perfect hideaway for two. It could not be more central in a lovely old, but completely modernised and refurbished, building. It is on the top floor up in the roofs of the city, with a good lift. The roof beams make a lovely feature. The apartment was warm and cosy with a good heating system, necessary in Granada in winter. Everything you could possibly want in an apartment; comfortable bed, good furniture, plenty of storage space and a lovely working kitchen, roomy bathroom. But what makes this apartment an absolute gem is the outside space ….. Up in the roofs of the city, surrounded by other buildings and the cathedral, is a wonderful roof terrace. In sun all day, and with a very effective awning this lovely amenity has a view of the mountains, while we were there they were sparkling white against a brilliant blue sky. We had breakfast or lunch outside on the terrace every day. Had we wished to we could have eaten out for every meal in a different venue, all the restaurants cafes etc are moments away. Another winning feature is the quiet. The apartment block is quiet. No noisy voices. The streets surrounding the apartment are pedestrianised. The cathedral bells may wake you in the morning, or the sun streaming through the shutters, but nothing from outside will wake you through the night. Should you Google Earth this apartment do not be put off by the outside appearance of the tiny Calle down which the apartment is situated. The street looks small and dark, but so are all the streets around the cathedral, and they are buzzing with life. We wandered everywhere after dark and never experienced a moment’s anxiety. It is evident, from the way he talks enthusiastically about life in the city, that Jesus loves this apartment and this part of Granada. He has good reason. We will definitely be returning.
