Make a holiday cottage in Pinos Genil your home away from home

Pinos Genil holiday cottages are set conveniently between the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and the lovely city of Granada. This means you could spend a morning hiking, or even skiing, amid sublime upland scenery, and then the afternoon enjoying remarkable heritage at the famed Alhambra palace citadel. Holiday cottages in Pinos Genil combine rural cosiness with luxurious flourishes like private pools and gardens shaded by trees. Some of the views are captivating, taking in either Granada or the rugged peaks of the Sierra Nevada. If you're planning a trip with a large group then many holiday homes in Pinos Genil are very spacious, and can accommodate more than six visitors.

Things to do

-Central Granada. At the heart of this city you'll be surrounded by stunning medieval architecture and can explore narrow cobblestoned alleys that lead to quiet squares. The fragrance of great food will be ever present - Granada is loved for its excellent tapas. Sights not to miss in the city include the 16th Century Cathedral, the second largest in Spain and built over the former Great Mosque. The city's Muslim heritage is evident just south of the cathedral at the Alcaiceria, which was once a Moorish silk market.

-The Alhambra. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is Granada's most symbolic landmark. Only a limited number of visitors are permitted each day, so it's worth booking in advance. Essentially the Alhambra is a large royal complex that combines a palace, fortress, ornamental architecture and spectacular gardens, all with fabulous views over Granada. Key sights include the ruins of the Alcazaba fortress, and the lush Generalife gardens.

-Winter sport. 25 minutes southeast of the village of Pinos Genil is the Sierra Nevada ski station, which has a season that lasts from December to early-April. It's Europe's southernmost ski destination and sits at an elevation ranging from 2200 to 3300 metres. There are more than 100 kilometres of pistes here from green through to black. Other activities available include dog-sledding, skating and snow-shoeing, with spa and wellness amenities also provided.

-Other recreation. One of the best things about this location is the natural scenery, which is nothing short of beautiful. Two nearby lookout points include Alto Cerro de la Cruz and Paraje de la Fuente del Lobo. Meanwhile there's great fishing and a host of walking trails to discover. One of these is the Via Verde, which follows six kilometres of a former rail line, alongside the Genil River.

-Costa Tropical. Granada's Costa Tropical is within an hour's drive of Pinos Genil. Driving down the A-44 from Granada, Motril is the first major resort that you'll reach. Here there's a fine choice of beaches offering sand or small pebbles, and ranging from intimate coves to large bays. The largest is Playa de Poniente, complemented by beach bars, showers and typical beach facilities including sunbeds and parasols.

Weather in Pinos Genil

Pinos Genil holiday accommodation is in a Continental Mediterranean climate zone. Thanks to the elevation and nearby mountains, winters can be quite fresh in this region, while summers are long-lasting and hot, with temperatures that soar above 30 degrees in July and August. Nearby Granada is one of Spain's top four sunniest cities, and rainfall is uncommon throughout the year, apart from during a couple of months in the winter. There are also occasional frosts in December and January, when temperatures drop to freezing at night and rise to about 13 or 14 degrees by day.

Travel to Pinos Genil

Pinos Genil holiday homes are reachable from the UK via Federico Garcia Lorca Airport (GRX), which serves Granada. The airport sits about 25 minutes by car from the village of Pinos Genil and has a handful of connections with Britain. If you arrive at one of Andalucia's larger airports, at Sevilla, Malaga or Almeria then you could drive or take the train. Granada has a range of direct, long-distance rail links to cities including Barcelona, Madrid, Albacete and Valencia.

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!

They were very friendly and hospitable. They gave us all the necessary information about the apartment and the area. Grocery shopping is close by as well as the city attractions. The apartment is bright, clean and well equipped. The shower was unique and very satisfying. The main attraction in Granada, the Alhambra is very easily reached from the location of the apartment.
