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.

Things to do in Granada, Spain

There is an enormous amount to see and do in Granada, details of which are far too detailed to be able to mention here, but there are many cheap Granada guides to be found, and if you have already reached your accommodation in Granada, the tourist information centre is very well organised, and information and ideas for entertainment in Granada is easily obtained. 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.

Life in accommodation in Granada is not all about discovery of days gone by. In taking a Granada holiday rental property you get the chance to enjoy life in the mountains. The ski resort of Estacion Sierra Nevada is the southernmost ski resort in Europe, and is well within reach of a Granada holiday home. The ski season from a Granada holiday rental lasts from late November until April, despite its southerly location.

During the summer, a holiday cottage in Granada or the outskirts means you can get a round of golf with ease. The 18 hole Granada Golf course boasts some amazingly wide fairways and surprising obstacles, offering a testing round for any standard of golfer. As long as you arrive at your Granada holiday cottage, villa or apartment with a handicap certificate, you are almost guaranteed a tee off time. You can also go swimming, horse-riding, mountain biking (bikes can be hired for around £4 a day), play tennis or even para-gliding from accommodation in Granada.

Places to go on a Granada holiday, Spain

Upon your arrival in Granada accommodation, you will probably notice the heat, and unless you are lucky enough to be staying in a Granada villa with a pool, you may be tempted to head down to the beaches of the Costa del Sol. Luckily, the world-class beaches of Salobrena, Almunecar and La Herradura are within half an hours drive of a Granada property, and there are regular bus services connecting the two.

Weather in Granada, Spain

Granada holidays are made even more special by the glorious climate. Blessed with an average of 250 days of sunshine every year, even Granada holidays skiing are a shirt sleeve affair. Summer temperatures average around 32˚C, whilst in winter, averages are closer to around 11˚C.

Wonderful House and Relaxing Stay

5 of 5
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.

Stunning location and views and very central location.

4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a beautiful apartment and location. 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.
