                                                                                                      We (a family of four, including two teenagers) stayed in this house in July/August 2017 and had a wonderful holiday. The house itself is beautiful; set in the medieval Albaicin district, with tasteful decoration, air conditioning and everything needed to live comfortably. The views are stunning, the pool is lovely and much needed during the very hot weather when we stayed (40-42C). We were met by Marta, as Samar was on holiday. Marta was friendly and courteous and contactable if needed. The house is located in the perfect area to access everything Albaicin has to offer, from local shops, bars and restaurants to the interesting Sacramonte hills with cave houses (we were invited to see inside by owners in return for a small payment of €1 per person). It is also easy to get in to central Granada, with its many high-end shops and restaurants, by bus from Albaicin, although we walked there in about 20 minutes. The walk back is steep so some people may prefer to get a bus or taxi; both are plentiful. Alhambra Palace is also within walking distance. The view of Alhambra at sunset is very beautiful and there are several viewing spots within five minutes’ walk from the house, from which to see this amazing sight. We also viewed Alhambra from the same spot when it was lit up at night – this too is a fantastic sight. There are many local grocery, bakery and general stores plus a morning market 5 mins walk from the house, as well as banks and pharmacies. Bars and restaurants are also within a short walking distance; drinks and meals very reasonably priced and good quality. Lunch menus around €10 per head, evening meals including drinks around €70 for 4 people. There is a good variety of food available in the different bars and local beer and wine is well priced and of a high standard. The area is famed for its flamenco musicians and these perform at the restaurants where you are invited to contribute a small sum, should you wish. Bear in mind that the majority of places close between 14.00 and 18.00. For English speakers without fluency in Spanish, Samar and Marta have excellent English. It is beneficial to have some Spanish for the shops, bars and restaurants although some English is spoken. People are relaxed, helpful and polite. We would definitely recommend a holiday in this house; it is exactly as portrayed in the photos and makes for very a relaxing holiday where you can immerse yourself in as much or as little of the local culture as you wish.

I would agree with other previous comments that everything is well thought out and beautifully presented but the kitchen doesn't have quite the same attention to detail re. crockery, glasses, cutlery etc. We would happily return for another vacation. Watching the sunset from the terrace while looking at the Alhambra cannot really be beaten.
