This is a home from home and I want you to be feel completely at home when you stay here. The house is on three floors: there are stairs up from the entrance gate to the first patio with the jasmine pergola and the front door. The bedrooms and bathroom are on the first floor and the one the second floor, there is the lounge, kitchen and sun terrace. I really like cooking and entertaining so the kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven, hob, dishwasher and normal cooking utensils, plates, glasses, fridge/freezer, etc. and also a washing machine. There is a table and chairs where you can eat outside in the summer months.
With the exception of the top terrace (staircase locked with a key), guests have access to the whole house. It is yours for the duration of your stay and I want you to feel at home when you are here.
Interaction with Guests
Personally when I go on holiday, I prefer to be left to my own devices to settle in and explore the place at my own pace. Basically, I want you to feel at home and so I will leave you alone. However, having said that, I am always available 24/7 at the end of a phone to solve any problems you may have, to offer advice, recommend places to go, organise taxis, etc. I will also provide you with detailed arrival instructions which will explain how to get to the house without any problems as I know just how to difficult it is to drive through Granada because of the one-way and restricted resident traffic systems. I am not very good at cleaning and so I prefer to employ a cleaner who will do it better than me. This is the woman who will also meet you and show you the house. I look forward to seeing you soon and hope that you will enjoy 'mi casa y barrio' as much as I do.
What can I say? I might be biased but I think this is the perfect neighbourhood. It is a short walk up to the Plaza Larga where are still traditional small, local shops, small supermarkets, a bread shop, a daily vegetable market and a flower market on Saturdays. If you fell like eating out, there are plenty of tapa bars and restaurants, and squares where you can sit out, enjoy a drink and just people watch. For that really special occasion, there are also some fantastic restaurants set in some of the old carmenes in the Albaicín. There is even a restaurant with gardens where you can see a flamenco show while you eat.
On the other hand, walking down the hill, you quickly come to Calle Elvira with its lively nightlife and the Gran Via (the main thoroughfare of Granada). This is where the modern centre of Granada starts.
Granada is such a small city, the best way to get around is on foot. If you do come by car, it is possible to park directly outside or near the house.
However, 50 metres down from the house there is a bus stop where you can catch the C1 circular bus which links the centre of Granada and the Albaicín.
Taxis are also cheap in the centre of Granada.
Other Things to Note
The heating uses an automatic system which can be controlled via internet. It should always be warm when you arrive. If at any moment you feel cold just phone me and I will put it onto full power immediately. (10 000 watts) There is no reason for anyone to be cold no matter what the weather.
The accommodation was very good. Bedrooms basic but cool. Living area excellent, particularly the terrace with table, bbq etc. Generally a lovely cottage, well equipped, good bathroom & kitchen, beds ok, stairs seriously difficult, lots of steps up to property, terrace gorgeous, yes generally not bad - I know, I look after 400 properties in uk west country!
Great location, charming property. Needed better heating and some rugs (floors extremely cold).
Sérieux problème de confort dans cet appartement:
- chaises de salle à manger en lattes de bois (pas de coussins)
- table de salle à manger en lattes de bois
- fauteuil très inconfortable (rembourrage en tapon)
- éclairage déficient dans la salle à manger et le salon
- lit trop ferme et inconfortable
-Accueil indifférent et expéditif
- système de chauffage défectueux à notre arrivée (il faisait froid et humide, nous avons dû garder nos manteaux pendant près de 5 heures)
- quelques fourmis sur le comptoir de la cuisine
Éléments essentiels manquants:
- pas de coussins sur les chaises de salle à manger
- pas de coussins sur les fauteuils
- pas de napperons, pas de nappe
- pas de cafetière
- pas de linge de vaisselle
- pas de savon à vaisselle
Bruyant la nuit (passants dans la rue)
Chiens qui jappent
La salle de bain est bien.
Le quartier Albaicin est intéressant, mais très en pente. Pour marcheurs aguerris seulement, d'autant plus que l'approvisionnement en denrées se fait au bas de la côte.
Je ne louerais pas à nouveau cet appartement.
nice space, easy check in, clean. BUT the second bedroom is suitable just for kids or your mooching brother. The primary bedroom faces a noisy street - which in Oct was an bother but in hot weather would be terrible due to lack of AC. Great patio.No internet and just one tv station
Nice little house to spend a few days in Granda. John and Sarah were very responsive and even fixed a heating issue while we where there. Their site to Grandad is extremely useful, so was of great advantage to book with them and find out about their website as well as the little pamphlet they have prepared with information surrounding the house. Not right in the middle of the routes route, so nice to feel like a local, but also a short walk to the viewpoint and the interesting plaza larga.
Lovely and warm inside the house and a fabulous patio garden with amazing views!
Die Lage im Altstadtviertel ist gut, die Terrasse hat einen schönen Blick auf eine Altstadtmauer, die Wohnung ist stilvoll eingerichet - die Schlafzimmer etwas weniger.
Einziger Nachteil ist der Lärm in der Nacht, da die Fenster nicht besonders dicht sind und die Schlafzimmer direkt an der Kopfsteinpflasterstraße liegen,
sodass man alles-auch Fußgänger-hört. Trotzdem würde ich nocheinmal in diese Wohnung fahren.
