The location is perfect for the Alhambra and central for everything else. Richard could not have been welcoming and helpful, he genuinely wants to make your stay as easy as possible. Flamenco at Casa Del Arte Flamenco was incredible - we went twice!

The villa comfortably accommodated 7 of us, and we were regularly blown away by the beauty of the villa and the views overlooking the Andalucian hills. The photos on the listing only capture a fraction of this. The villa is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is perfect for a fun and relaxing holiday. Particular highlights included the pool, 4 terraces, the sunken bath with hillside view, Remi's Paella night, (and the Neals Yard cosmetics in every room!), to name a few. The Alhambra in Granada is also easily reached by car. Jeff & Tish are very welcoming & helpful hosts and we will be recommending the villa to friends should we not have already booked it again.
