Overview

About the property

In a quiet and safe neighbourhood, yet just just 5 mins from centre of town!

One of two apartments on Alhambra hill in the centre of Granada yet in a quiet tranquil neigbourhood. From here you are within easy reach of the old moorish quarter, or the cathedral and the main commercial area of the city. You couldn't be much nearer to the Alhambra. A couple of minutes walk gets you to the woods that lead up to the Palace.

Fully equiped seperate kitchen.

One double bed in bed room and a double sofa bed in living room. The sofa bed is fine for children.

Shower room. All towels and linen are supplied.

Outside patio area.

Minimum stay 3 nights. English/Spanish owner couple who live close by.

Satelite TV, 24/7 Wifi.

No smoking in the apartment, but yes in the patio.

Note: 45 steps lead up to the house, so it is not suitable for people with restricted mobility.

The patio to which you have access is seen in the photos of the property. You are welcome to use it, and it is perfect for breakfast or dinner in the evening.

The apartment is totally independent from our part of the house, and the independence of our guests is a priority for us. However, on arrival we are more than happy to introduce you to what we consider to be the best of our city: whether it be the interesting neighbourhoods, the innumerable historic buildings and museums, or the restaurantes, bars, shops etc. Apart from a map for you, we leave printed information in the apartment, and we are close at hand if you were to require any further assistance.

We love our neighbourhood! It is like a little village in on the side of the Alhambra hill. It is safe and quiet with the Alhambra woods just a few yards away. However, 5 minutes walk down the hill and you are in lively Plaza Nueva with its restaurants, bars and nearby shops.

We are so central that all the sights really are within walking distance of the apartment. You won't need a car to visit the city itself, but if you arrive at the city in a vehicle we will recommend a well priced Car Park close to the city ring road. There are Car Parks closer to us, but are much more expensive, and to negotiate Granada's one way systems and restrictive car-access, is an experience you really do want to avoid!! Granada is a very Car-Unfriendly city, but that shouldn't be a problem... apart from walking, taxis are cheap and there is an excellent public bus system.

With confirmation of your booking with us, you will receive details on how to arrive at the apartment depending on your method of transport... car, bus, train or plane, and other information.

About Richard

Richard and Esperanza met in London in mid 70's. Esperanza studied art at the Royal College of Art; Richard played with both Joe Strummer and John Lydon in various bands of the time. They moved to Granada in 1988, having restored the ruin that they had found at the foot of the Alhambra. With their children leaving home, they decided to convert a section of the house in to two independent apartments. They still live in a seperate part of the house. Esperanza, an active artist with regular international exhibitions of her paintings and sculpture, has a ceramic studio off the patio. Some of her work is used in the decoration of the apartments. Richard is still involved in music: both playing and producing musical events. They are both more than happy to share their extensive local knowledge.

Richard purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Richard chose Granada

Having decided that we wanted to move from London to Granada we couldn't believe our luck when Esperanza's brother sent us a photo of a dilapidated ruin at the foot of the Alhambra. We had wanted to live in the centre of the city, but to have found a property in this perfect position was more than we could have hoped for. Perched on the side of the Alhambra hill with views to the front overlooking the city, and behind us a green swathe of the Alhambra woods we couldn't have asked for more. Just pedestrian cobbled streets in the neighbourhood, which suits us fine. Bird song for car horns is our preference, yet in 5 minutes you are in the centre of the city with the necessary shops bars and restaurants. We renovated the house and had space for a ceramic workshop for Esperanza.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartments really do combine two apparently opposite characteristics. We are right in the historic centre of the city with bars and restaurants 5 minutes walk down the hill, yet at the same time we are tucked away in a quiet (and safe) traffic-free area. Three minutes walk up the hill brings you to the Alhambra woods with its running water, bird song, and deliciously cool respite from Granada's summer heat. You have absolute privacy during your stay, but we are on hand to help out in any way that we can. We want you to enjoy your stay here!!!
