Lovely Apartment in a Great Location

5 of 5
We arrived in the middle of a heatwave but the apartment stayed cool. Both owners were very helpful, giving us handy tips on things like how to tour the Alhambra etc. We stayed for a week so really had time to look around and relax, went to the coast, loved the tapas, took the tourist bus. Would recommend Granada and this accommodation highly.

Beautiful location, lovely quaint cottage and great pool

4 of 5
The terrace was gorgeous, with spectacular views although don't forget the mosquito repellent if sitting out in the evening. Wifi was good and the kitchen spacious and well equipped. Loved the pool area - great temperature in pool. Unfortunately the weather was unusually hot some of the time we were there so the upstairs rooms were difficult to sleep in - downstairs remained relatively cool though. We had a very relaxing time at the cottage with plenty of privacy. Rather a lot of ants both in and out of the cottage but you get used to them! We would recommend the restaurant Jomay as the family and staff were very friendly (despite our language barrier) and generous and food the best in village. Stunning views in Montefrio.
