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!

We walked from a different direction and the tiny streets are like a labyrinth! However this was a small price to pay for the treasure we found and we actually enjoyed the challenge.....! Being so central in the old and beautiful part of the city was just extraordinary. We were able to walk easily to the Alhambra (stopping midway for breakfast) where we had a private guided tour. This is much to be recommended, it was our third visit to the palace and we were as thrilled as we were the first time with the extraordinary beauty. The beds were comfy and the apartment so light and airy. There was no traffic noise as that area is all pedestrian only. We could see the Alhambra from two of the three bedrooms. Thank you so much Anita and Shaun, we will be back!

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.
