On the first floor are the main bedroom, with beautiful views, a sitting area with a large tv and a fireplace, and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi and a shower cabin; a double bedroom with a full bathroom, which also has a door to the hallway; and another double bedroom.

About Viveca

This beautiful house belongs to my friend Javier. He built the house and designed the garden with exquisite style and a great eye for detail. As I know the house well, have had excellent experiences renting out our own country house in the Sierra de Gredos, and can attend our guests in several languages, he asked me to give him a hand with the holiday rentals of his country home. I am of Dutch-Argentine-American-German origin and live in Madrid since 1990.

Viveca purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

One of the Albaicin's most beautiful villas (Carmen as they're called locally), which can easily be reached by car or bus, and is within a few meters from the Albaicin's best shopping streets and restaurants. Complete silence, luxury and spectacular views in the heart of Granada.

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

What a unique home. Brimming with stories in the form of pictures, photos and ornaments, but beautifully clean and sparkly. A real gem!

Lovely Granada Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of 10 and found this house and cottage accommodated us well. The pool and grounds are lovely and the house is beautiful and well furnished as you see in the pictures. It had everything we needed. A favorite spot for us all was the rooftop patio with gorgeous views of the city and the Alhambra at night. Perfect for a nightcap. Ignacio was very helpful with parking our large cars and with orienting us to the nearby area. It is located near plaza, shops, bars and restaurants. Once we got our bearings, we realized how close it was to walk to St. Nicholas Balcony (best night time views of Alhambra), and the city center. We parked our cars when we arrived and then mostly walked everywhere, with some cab rides when we were tired.

A jewel in the Granada crown

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 middle aged men with bikes. We chose this house for its size, pool and character. We were not disappointed on any level. After a long couple of days in the saddle we dived in the pool to cool down. When the rain came we used the wonderful log fire. We all had our own bed in rooms full of character and history. Lots of amazing photo's and artwork to keep us interested. The house had everything we needed (a kettle would help for us Brits). We walked to Alhambra which took 20 minutes and the house is well located to explore the narrow streets of the old town. Down the hill to the modern area of Granada is also straightforward. Plenty of restaurants and bars worth exploring close to the house, with very friendly owners and staff. Tapas with a beer is a wonderful way to end the day. All in all a really great few days in a wonderful house with a really supportive and attentive owner. Nothing was too much trouble. Recommended.

Beautiful house and property in Granada’s charming Albaicin

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling as a large family, and this house was the perfect retreat to both enjoy the best of what Granada has to offer, and to relax in the tranquil setting by the pool or in one of the many seating areas in the house. This was one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen, and would surely return if I am traveling with a big group.

Elegantly charming

Lovely spacious traditional styled Villa with lots of antiques and interesting personal family mementos. Wonderful pool area. Beautiful views of the Alhambra from the tower. Pretty and completely private garden. Ignacio was very helpful especially with the car parking!

Wonderful house with great views and nice surrounding placed in relaxed Albazin

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for family vacation with garden and swimming pool. Beautiful views to Alhambra, Granada, Sierra Nevada and plains, especially from the roof terrace and the room in the tower. Good service from Viveca and Ignacio, thank you so much. The area in Albazin was relazing with nice to walk around the small labyrinthic lanes and cosy restaurants. Still the busy town center of Granada was close by for shopping and tourism. Go there!

The villa is located in a very quiet part of the upper Albaycin, but at the same time within few meters of one of the main Albaycin access roads by car, and a few meters away from the most lively main shopping streets and squares, with a fruit and vegetable market around the corner every morning, and all sorts of shops and restaurants within a few minute's walking distance.

The spectacular skiing slopes of the Sierra Nevada, with views of Granada and of the subtropical Mediterranean coast, is at less than an hour by car from the house, as are the beaches of Motril. There is an excellent golf course at Las Gabias, at a 20 minute drive from the house.
