Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in Granada, Spain your home away from home

The red stone city of Granada is a real marvel to behold, especially during the evening hours when the sun dips behind the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the lights of the Alhambra Palace are in full beam. The city, which is the capital of its namesake, Granada Province, is found in the east of Andalucia between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Costa del Sol beaches.

The story of the Kingdom of Granada is one which is cannot fail to intrigue, and there is plenty of information to decipher whilst enjoying a coffee or beer in one of the many atmospheric and scenic pavement cafes and bars throughout the city.

The long history of Granada has resulted in the town becoming a veritable maze of narrow, twisting streets which suddenly erupt into impressive open squares without a moments warning. The Red Hill walk through the city takes in some of the most interesting views of the city, including much of the unique Hispano-Moorish art from the Nasrid culture which sprung up in Granada.

Beautiful, characterful apartment in historical part of Granada

5 of 5
Staying in such a historical apartment was the icing on the cake to a wonderful trip to Granada. The city exceeded my expectations. The Albayzin is just beautiful - a maze of ancient alleyways, with Spanishness seeping out of every whitewashed wall. The apartment is plenty big enough and is well situated right in the heart of the Albayzin but also a short walk from the main squares of Granada and within walking distance of the Alhambra too. There are vibrant shops, cafes and restaurants nearby, and picture postcard views of the Alhambra from nearby viewpoints (also from the bedroom window!). The apartment is simply but beautifully furnished and adorned. The kitchen is tiny but equipped enough for basic meals. Due to the age of the building and building regulations and restrictions (this being a UNESCO world heritage area) there isn't proper air conditioning, but builders of the past centuries knew how to make buildings in the Albaycin as naturally cool as possible. Bring earplugs as it can be noisy - but when I was there the 'noise' was the neighbour playing Spanish guitar (a free concert!). The host, Anita, is super helpful with enquiries and suggestions of where to go. Staying here is like stepping back in time (albeit with a shower, TV, DVD player and internet access!). So...don't stay here if you want 5* hotel standard mod cons. Do stay here if you want to experience staying in a World Heritage standard piece of history.
