Great Apartment

5 of 5
We were a group of three couples in our late twenties/early therties, and we were looking for an apartment large enough for everybody to have its own space, very central, and with a parking garage in the same building... and that is exactly what we got! When we arrived at Granada, Alvaro, Jose Maria's nephew, was already waiting for us to show us around the house. We then realized how large and clean the apartment was: we never felt cramped. It is in the center of Granada but yet, really quiet. You can go walking anywhere (Granada is not a good town for driving a car). There were lots of bars and restaurantes around, as well as several small supermarkets. We tried a couple of the bars Jose Maria recomended, and we really liked them. We will definitly stay here again.

Lovely apartment with sunny terrace next to vibrant Plaza Larga

4 of 5
We spent a very enjoyable four nights here as part of a road journey around Andalusia. There was plenty of space and the beds comfortable. We cooked at the apartment and the kitchen was reasonably well stocked with what we needed. Fernando was very helpful and accessible; he worked just over the road in the exceptional cake shop. We enjoyed late evenings out on the terrace, feeling part of the lively goings on in Plaza Larga. Only disappointment was the lack of a washing machine - we had packed light and needed to wash our clothes!
