About the property

This house is located inside the Albaicín, in Granada. The neighborhood was declared UNESCO world heritage site and is, without doubt, the most charming and touristic place in the city. The house has 4 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a courtyard and a balcony.

The house has exceptionally good views of the city and surroundings, and its southern orientation provides sunlight for almost the entire day, making the patio around the house very enjoyable.

It has heating, internet, plus several electrical appliances (fridge, washing machine, dishwasher and oven). Bedclothes and towels are also included.

The city centre is 12-15 minutes away on foot, and there are several bus stops 5 minutes away (the bus has a frequency of 10 minutes).

The courtyard is divided in two halves: the first one is cool and shaded, perfect during summer afternoons, and the second one is connected with the living room by a door, with plenty of sun and an awesome view of the entire city. It is the perfect place to see the sunset too!

In the first floor you'll find one bedroom, the kitchen and living room, and one of the bathrooms. In the second one, there are 3 more bedrooms, the other bathroom, and the balcony. It is a big and nice house, perfect for enjoying the outside areas, and located near one of the most famous viewpoints of the city: el mirador de San Cristóbal (the lookout of San Cristóbal).

By car, you can get to the main door, and it is possible to park the vehicle near the house. If there are no parking spots left, there is a free parking area about 500 meters away.

The neighborhood has shops, restaurants, banks and healthcare centers, and the best places where you can forget yourself and enjoy the city!

Why Samar chose San Ildefonso

If you want to visit the modern city center you can go walking (about 15-20 minutes) or you can take a bus (running every 10 minutes). In the area of Plaza Nueva (25 minutes walk) you will find a lively nightlife and in Navas Street (near City Hall) a good place for tapas.

All of these activities can be comfortably made on foot as the Alhambra house awaits you. If you also have transportation or take a bus, we can recommend other activities between half an hour and an hour distance from Granada:

Skiing and snowboarding can be foundwithin 50-60 minutes by car. The Sierra Nevada is a popular tourist destination, as its high peaks make skiing possible in one of Europe's most southerly ski resorts in an area along the Mediterranean Sea predominantly known for its warm temperatures and abundant sunshine.

Rural tourism, trekking, and other outdoor activities are also only a 60 minutes car ride away. We recommend a singular and special area: Las Alpujarras. The Alpujarra is a natural and historical region in Andalucia, Spain, between the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean. It extends over two provinces, Granada and Almería, and is often referred to in the plural as 'Las Alpujarras'. There are several interpretations of this Arabic name: the most convincing is that it derives from al-bugsharra, meaning something like 'sierra of pastures'. Although it would take more time you can’t miss out on Capileira or Pampaneira.

If you are more in the mood for the beach than the mountains Salobreña, apicturesque village with network of cobbled narrow streets on the Andalusian coast, is only a 45-60 minute drive depending on traffic. We recommended lunch or dinner overlooking the sea in any of a number of restaurants. If from here you take the coastal road in the direction of Malagayou will find other spectacular villages such as Nerja.

What makes this house unique

You are renting the entire house so you don't have to share anything. Internet wifi, full-equiped kitchen (oven, dishwasher, washing machine, etc). Towels and linen provided.

I'll receive you, I'll show you where to park and show you the principal interest sights of the neighborhood. I will be at your disposal throughout your stay.

From the house at the morning you can go walking through the picturesque streets of the Albaicín and go to breakfast in a cafe of Plaza Larga, after breakfast you can go to Mirador de San Nicolas and enjoy a privileged view of the Alhambra and the mountains of Sierra Nevada. At lunch time you can go for 'tapas' at bars nearby (with your drink you get a free tapa in Granada) or you can go to a popular restaurant or a more selected about Mirador de San Nicolas.

From the Albaicin just in the midle of Cuesta del Chapiz street you'll find the access to the great gypsy neighborhood of Sacromonte, already pretty along the day you'll find particularly fascinating during night (especially weekends), in addition of its spectacular views it has a lively nightlife with flamenco shows performed in caves, in fact this area is famous for its cave-houses.

Going to the base of the Cuesta del Chapiz, and at the back of Albaicin, you will see a bridge. Across it are two streets, one leading strait and another to the left.The first option leads to the Alhambra. Though the “principal” way option is from Plaza Nueva Square, this path takes you through a winding route without asphalt that retraces 500 years of history and is highly recommended. If, on the contrary, you take the path to the left you will find a path that leads along the slope of the mountain upon which sits the Alhambra. From here you can enjoy unique views of the Albaicin and Sacromonte, and at the end of the route you will find a fountain where it is possible to relax and refresh.

Great house at the top of the Albaicin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house in Granada. The location is amazing at the top of the Albaicin but be prepared to walk up or down to go any where. We found that walking down to the city center and then taking a taxi back if we were tired worked well for us. Overall the house is a great base for exploring Granada.

Very beautiful place ! Very good service I'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

This house is good ! AC works Laundry works, Kitchen works, big terrace outside with incredible view, also 2 of the the bedrooms upstairs have even better view with balcony and trees, fruit trees and flowers all over the house. You can see The Alhambra from the master bedroom. This house have 2 entrance and it is a walking distance from Plaza Nueva the center of Granada. You can take a walk to the center and take a taxi back to the house if you don't want to walk up the hill. It's like 5 or 6 Euros for 4 people That's what we did we walk down the to the center of Granada and came back by taxi. You have to be in shape to be able to walk up the hills in Granada the same for Toledo if you planing to go to Spain and you want to see all this monuments like La Alhambra you must start training. I'm not joking it is a lot of walking up the hills. This castles are located up on top of the mountain or hill so be prepared.

Also the house is located next to 2 of the top attractions in Granada and very close from another one and also you can see the Alhambra too so I was very happy with this house.

The service was great They explain everything to us very helpfull Thank you very much.

This was the best stay so far in Spain .

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views of the city. A 5 minute walk will bring you to the square which has shopping, groceries, pharmacy, bakeries and nice restaurants. The house is well kept. A book with house information would be helpful. The bedrooms are set up well. The bathrooms are clean and large. One bedroom one bathroom downstairs. 3 bedrooms and one bath upstairs. There is a single air conditioner downstairs in the living room and a single unit in the master bedroom. They were sufficient to keep the house pleasant. The patio and gardens are well kept. It would be nice to have a few lounge chairs and a broom to sweep when needed. The kitchen has most things you would need to cook. The stove is run off a propane tank. Full sized fridge. There is no parking near the house. You have to take 85 steps down to the house from the street but it adds to the charm. If you are lucky you can get parking at the street. There is also paid parking at the university around the corner. You would probably need a taxi to get to any sites. But the area is very beautiful so walking is not out of the question. Overall, we loved the house and Granada.
