This beautiful apartment is located in a special setting, near one of the most beautiful beaches in the park. It is a special place as it is very quiet area and it’s 2 kilometers from Rodalquilar, a charming village.
The apartment has been recently built in harmony with the environment. It has a double bedroom, with double bed, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. It is ideal for couples. It is fully equipped with good taste.
There is a nice little garden, that you can access from the lounge with a lovely old tree.
Rodalquilar is a charming town and its beach, Playazo, is one of the most beautiful in the park. In the village there are several bars with different characteristics, each in their own quality.
There are a few small shops for basic supplies, including fresh bread.
The Goldmine perches on the mountain above village. Most of the buildings have been restored and are now home to the Park Centre with its visitor centre, botanical and volcanism centres. There is also an open air theatre.
Below the Goldmine there are Botanical Gardens covering over 9Ha (22 acres).
The gardens are open daily and reproduce the diversity habitats that can be found in the park. The combination of plant life and water is big attraction for the local bird and animal life.
Activities: In the summer months there is open air cinema. There is live music or theatre nearly every night in Rodalquilar or one of the nearby villages. We can give you information of events and are happy to make bookings for you.
There are several driveable tracks that take you up behind the gold mine from the village to some interesting locations, such as the El Cortijo de El Fraile (5km) - the setting for real events of Garcia Lorca's play 'Blood Wedding'. A few kms further is the tiny village of Los Albaricoques - scene of the famous duel For a Few Dollars More (re-enacted each year).
Several marked trails originate in the village and climbing the mountains that surround the village can give stunning views from the snow capped Sierra Nevada to the Moroccan Atlas mountains. This is a cycling and hiking paradise although not perhaps at the height of summer.
Beaches: There are over 20 beaches and coves within the park in easy driving distance and the majority are unspoilt with no hotels or construction of any type. Los Muertos, Genoves, Monsul and of course Rodalquilar's beach, El Playazo are unmissable.
One of the few Mediterranean marine reserves, the snorkelling and diving is quite stunning, just next to the house! There are several dive outfits in the park. We can arrange single try out dives or longer courses.
There are kayaks and bicycles for hire and kayak tours are available in the summer months.
Granada and its Alhambra are an easy day trip by car or train. We can arrange a full day visit or an overnight if required.
