Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Albaicín - Carmen de los Moriscos

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

With views of the centuries-old Alhambra palace and the soaring peaks of the Sierra Nevada, this very special property is one of the most unique in Granada. Furnished and decorated with the utmost care by the owner, this beautiful house is an effortless blend of classical Andalucian style and modern comforts and conveniences. Split over three levels, it is at once spacious and intimate. The open-plan living and dining room is bright and welcoming, and has been furnished in a discrete traditional style with original Andalucian furnishings and decoration. Wooden beams, tiled flooring, quality wooden furniture and an original fireplace make this a wonderful space to relax or enjoy a meal. The kitchen is in keeping with the classic Spanish style but has been fully-equipped with all modern appliances and everything guests may need during their stay. Each of the bedrooms has been individually decorated. The two double bedrooms offer breathtaking views of the Alhambra, the master bedroom also boasting a small terrace, perfect for enjoying breakfast or an after-dinner drink. The bathrooms are bright and elegant, with local tiles and fittings. The exterior of the property is equally charming, with a front garden complete with small swimming pool, fish pond and fountain and dining area. The roof-top terrace is a real highlight – with unbeatable views to the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada, guests can enjoy an al-fresco meal with a difference. The house has an underground garage, or alternatively guests can make use of the bus that stops almost on the doorstep of the house, and which will take them directly to the heart of the city. The house is located in the Albaycin, one of the oldest and undoubtedly most atmospheric parts of the city. With typical white-washed Andalucian houses, flower-filled patios and tiny tabernas, this quintessential Granada barrio clambers up the hill overlooking the Alhambra. The Mirador de San Nicolas at the very top of the hill is the place to go in the early evening as the sun sets spectacularly over the Alhambra. The Albaycin is tranquil and quiet, and gives visitors a unique the opportunity to soak up the city’s history and charm. House: 250m2 Grounds: 480m2. The house has 3 levels and is accessed from the top and going down 2 flights of steps. Access is through the hall with the twin bedroom on the left (0.90m x 1.90m). From the hall, you have stairs leading down to the lower level: living room, dining room and kitchen are on this level. The living area has three-seater sofa and two easy chairs with coffee table in the center and open fireplace. Flat screen TV on the wall. The dining area has tables and chairs to seat 8. The kitchen is separate and is fully equipped with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher. The fridge and freezer are situated in the pantry, accessed from the kitchen. The outdoor garden can be accesses from the living area and from the kitchen. On the ground level there is a bathroom with a bathtub. Right of the hall level, up two steps, we have two double bedrooms (1.40m x 1.90m) with en suite bathrooms with bathtubs. Both of these bedrooms have views of La Alhambra and one of them has a small terrace with a table and two chairs. All bedrooms have fitted cupboards. On the third level we have the office space with desk and book space, views of the Alhambra and door to access the rooftop terrace. Grounds: the front garden has a private pool 4m x 5m, table and chairs to seat 6 people and a fish pond with gold fish. Rooftop terrace has table and chairs to seat 6 people.

Due to our constant efforts on mantaining our high standards, some pieces of furniture or decoration may be different from the ones shown in the photo gallery.

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't lie. The villa is exceptional!

People from all over the world take taxis, buses or walk to Plaza San Nicolas to gaze at the Alhambra. From the villa, which is just below the plaza, you get the views without going anywhere.

The villa is also close to lots of great restaurants in Albacin.

The only negative is the bedroom with the 2 single beds does not have an air conditioner. Since we were in Granada when the weather was in the 40's, sleeping in this bedroom was not an option. We moved the two mattresses to the living room and everything was good.

Outstanding Villa leaving nothing to be desired!

  • 5 of 5

An impeccably restored villa sparing no expense to detail. Miguel the owner is most hospitable, providing us with lovely array of beverages and snacks upon our arrival. Views of Alhambra from your private terrace are arguably the best in the city. TV and WiFi were uninterrupted and provided selections beyond what top notch hotels currently provide (a key when traveling with teens). Parking is available onsite in your private garage if arriving by car, another key feature when traveling with a family. The villa is spotless and in perfect order, showing the true passion Miguel takes in talking about and showing off his pride and joy. Don’t get it wrong, Miguel will not bother you during your stay but will definitely be available to answer a quick text at all hours. A true vacation retreat in the heart of the place to be. And of course then there is the pool and courtyard, larger than most and a great retreat at the end of a long day of exploring. Highly recommended. Andre and Family from Toronto, Canada

Gorgeous house, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place is top notch, from loving manner in which the house was restored to the wonderful outside spaces to the absolutely breathtaking views of the Alhambra. Seriously, you can not ask for a better experience. And Miguel Angel is the perfect host. If you have any challenges walking up or down hundreds of steps, there's a bus that drops you off seconds from your front door. So if you're considering Carmen de Los Moriscos while in Granada, just do it - rest assured you won't be disappointed!

Incredible location, incredible home.

  • 5 of 5

Miguel and his home were an incredible find for our party of five. Miguel received us personally as we arrived via taxi and showed us all the trappings of his well-appointed place. He pre-stocked the kitchen with all manner of goodies, including fruits, pastries, milk, coffee, and even some sodas and beer. You've obviously already seen the photos of the views, which are themselves incredible; however, even they don't do justice to the real thing. Miguel's home is so nice that we had a hard time leaving to see the rest of the city! I can honestly say that is without a doubt the finest HomeAway property at which we've had the privilege of staying.

Breathtaking in every way

  • 5 of 5

To add superlatives to the other reviews would be redundant but I will say if you are going to visit Granada and have the honor of staying here you will be a very fortunate person(s). From the architecture to the interior design to the drop dead gorgeous views to the most gracious and thoughtful owner ever this villa is absolute perfection! I will return. And, yes, reality is better than the photos.
