Spacious, comfortable Granada apartment.

5 of 5
We were very happy with the apartment and especially with our helpful hosts. Jose- Maria was not on site but replied very promptly to my queries on line and via email when we were en route.To greet us was his nephew Alvaro who had cleaned the apartment thoroughly and was very helpful when we had difficulty getting a taxi for the bus station on the last day. It was well equipped and we found the walk to all the sites easy enough. There were plenty of shops and restaurants around the apartment and we tried the Rhodri restaurant nearby as recommended by Jose- Maria. This was a busy,jolly, authentic tapas place frequented I think largely by locals, good fun and interesting food. I have read in the review that the apartment was tired, decor wise but I thought it was good value for money and very comfortable especially in February, it was warm as promised. We found everyone in the city helpful and the owner and his nephew were good examples of this. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to my friends. Alison & Bill Cumbria

amazing, beautiful property, stunning views and a wonderful owner!

5 of 5
Our stay was amazing in every way. We arrived late at night and couldn't find the property. Antonio, the owner, very kindly came and found us and guided us to the property. Wow! We were greeted by a roaring log fire, sift music, local wine, biscuits, olives and fresh bread. The property is stunning, so tasteful in a Moroccan /Moorish kind of style. Beautiful rooms, one with a gorgeous sunken bath and copper basin. Main bathroom also gorgeous. Although a freezing cold January night, we ventured up to the roof terrace. Again, wow...bbq, lovely small pool, shower, furniture. In the morning, we took in the stunning views from the terrace. Overall, a gorgeous property, fantastic owner, stunning views. Would love to return in the summer. Can't recommend highly enough!

Very nice centrally located property.

4 of 5
Good quality apartment next to the cathedral. Great to be able to step out of the door and be in the centre of the old city. Downside is that there can be noise from the street especially at the weekend. That is always the call you make, central and lively or a bit further out and quieter. The flat is ideal for a couple but can take more on sofa bed etc. Parking is a challenge! €18 per night (if you're lucky) 10 minutes away. Granada is a great city and this makes a fun base. Bar Fede is well worth finding! Thanks Antonio and Mercedes!
