Fabulous house with magnificent views over the Alhambra

5 of 5
Five of us stayed here for three nights in late April. We arrived Friday evening and the owner miguel showed us around and explained how everything worked. There was a very welcome supply of basic food. The house contained everything we needed, was clean and we settled in very quickly What we loved about it was the roof terrace with wonderful views over the Alhambra and the garden which provided us with a lovely area to sit in when the sun came out. The house isn't easy to find, our taxi driver struggled. But the area, the Albaycin is a lovely one to stay in full of history and handy shops and bars. We loved it and the town. We did the Alhambra trip which was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely house, area and city, made for a great break
