The gated entrance ensures security. The balcony has a view over the sea and the square - perfect for people watching! It is well equipped with beautiful furnishings and some lovely homely touches. There are even English TV channels available - if you have time to watch TV! Car hire is not essential as you can walk to many beautiful beaches and pretty squares easily. Public transport is good too. The owners give clear guidance about accessing and using their property and were happy to answer all of our questions. They were a pleasure to deal with.

The location is perfect for the Alhambra and central for everything else. Richard could not have been welcoming and helpful, he genuinely wants to make your stay as easy as possible. Flamenco at Casa Del Arte Flamenco was incredible - we went twice!
