Guest comments: Having just returned from Spain I thought I would drop you an email to tell what a fabulous time we had. The apartment was beyond our wildest expectations, and far better than anything we have stayed in previously. The view from the balcony is stunning. We made it up to Sierra Nevada on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day - the children played snowballs on Christmas Eve, then on Christmas morning while the turkey was cooking we went up again so that they could do some tobogganing (fresh snow had fallen overnight), then on Boxing Day we all went up yet again.

I thank you for making this one of our best Christmas', the attention to detail made all the difference.

'We had a great time in Guejar Sierra - everything was spot on. Apartment is lovely, everything we could need and with those fantastic views from the terrace. You can happily use me as testimonial's case for the apartment as I can't recommend it highly enough.'

About Clare Whelan

My husband and I fell in love with Granada. The stunning views, fantastic food and history were hard to resist. We also love winter sports as well as relaxing by the beach and could think of no other place in the world where you can do both of these activities in the same day! We knew that in Guejar Sierra we really had found the perfect holiday location. A beautiful quiet village that was close to a historic vibrant city and within easy driving distance of a ski resort and beach. No matter what time of year we visited we would always have a fantastic holiday. Since purchasing the property our two fantastic children have been born and we can honestly say that the location is perfect as well for a family holiday. The village makes children very welcome and there are a couple of parks for them to play in too. Granada offers the best science park that we have ever been to and of course the beach is only 50 minutes away.

Why Clare Whelan chose Güejar Sierra

We chose this property because it has probably the best views in the village. It is the top floor of a small and quiet building with uninterrupted vistas of the mountain and reservoir below. It is ideally situated only a couple of minutes from the village with its lovely cobbled streets and fabulous little bars. The village is traditionally Spanish with daily visits from the bread van, fish van and fruit van, just listen out for the pip of the horn from the van! However there are still lots of small shops to get your essentials if you miss the van service!! The village is only 20 minutes from Granada, a vibrant city with so much to offer. The world famous Alhambra Palace dominates the city and is a Unesco world heritage site. It is breathtaking and an absolute must if visiting the area. Granada also offers tree lined streets, quaint bars, fabulous restaurants and flamenco! The ski resort of Sierra Nevada is only 20 minutes from the penthouse and offers some of the best and sunniest skiing in Europe. The season is long and often starts in November and ends in May. But there are also so many other activities in the area including walk/treks, mountain biking, horse-riding and paragliding.

What makes this apartment unique

The penthouse is situated on the top floor of a small, quiet building that is built into the hillside. It has no adjacent neighbours and is very private. This ensures that you have a peaceful holiday in a stunning location. The terrace has wraparound views of the mountain range and is the perfect spot to enjoy a meal and a drink with friends or simply to relax with a book and cup of coffee. I am happy to help with all aspects of your holiday planning and I will be pleased to put my specialist knowledge to use, having worked in the travel industry for many years. Many of my guests visit year after year as it is very easy to fall in love with Guejar Sierra. Please feel free to ask any questions about the Mulhacen Penthouse in Guejar Sierra.

Superb modern penthouse, in great location, with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

My son and myself were met by Rosie, who showed us around and provided us with all of the information that we needed. The penthouse was spacious, very comfortable and was very well equipped. The large balcony / terrace area had unobstructed views of the village, the mountains, valley and reservoir. A lovely place to eat and drink, enjoying the sunshine, after a day's skiing.

In late March, we found that the property was so warm that we only needed (the very efficient) heating system on for 10 to 15 min.s, in the morning and the same in the evening. Leaving from the front (higher level), it was a short walk up to the many tapas bars / restaurants. In each, the welcome was very friendly and there was always an element of surprise at what we would receive, with every drink.

The village is very attractive, with drinking fountains at various locations. We topped up our 6 ltr. container, with beautiful mountain water; far superior to the supermarket product.

Clare and Rosie told us of the short cut to the ski slopes, which we used every day, although on the last day we had to turn back, near the top, as a few cars could get no further because of ice. It's not the place to be in icy conditions but the views, looking down on the village, are superb.

Most days, we parked above Pradollano, in the Penones car park but, on the first day the ski pass kiosk was closed, as a result of deep snow, and we had to ski down to the village base, in order to buy our cards.

I finally got to see Africa, from 11,000+ ft in the Sierra Nevada.

Can't wait to return to Mulhacen. Geoff T.

A beautiful, well presented property with stunning views down the valley and up into the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Guejar Sierra is a lovely little Spanish town and a pretty simple drive up from Malaga. The apartment itself was lovely. There were 6 of us in our party (2 9yr olds) and we never felt like we were on top of each other. 2 good sized bathrooms, which was a real bonus and all the modcons you would need in a holiday let. The bedrooms were comfy and had enough space to not feel like you were crammed in. A nice lounge and dining area that lead out to a great balcony with fantastic views. We were there for the skiing, which myself and my wife were dubious about, being so far south. We couldn't have been proved more wrong! A great amount of snow, awesome weather and a wonderful beginners area at the top of the gondola and some decent runs too. We spent most of our time with the others in our group as it was their first time skiing so didn't get to go all over the mountain as we were teaching them the basics, but what area we did cover we were impressed with. Rosie told of us a short cut that zig zagged up the mountain to the main road which made Sierra Nevada about 20 minutes away. The resort itself looked good with bars and restaurants everywhere. We have looked at accommodation there but its twice the cost and doesn't look half as good as what the apartment is, so were justified in our choice. We've been skiing all over Europe, America and Canada and the accommodation is right up there with the best of them and for the sake of a 20 minute drive and the chance to stay in a typical Spanish village it was well worth it. We will definitely be returning next year but for a week - that's how impressed we were. I would make sure you have google translate on your phone if you don't speak Spanish as some of the restaurants struggle with English but it made it enjoyable and we all managed to muddle through in the end!! Overall a great holiday and I must thank Clare for all her help with my endless questions before we left England and for letting us stay in her lovely 2nd home.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property based on location for walking in the Sierra Nevada and proximity to Granada. On both counts the property fulfilled all of our needs and then proceeded to over-deliver based on comfort, the village of Guejar Sierra, cleanliness and views from the apartment. We will return!

Stunning mountain location. Great for walking!

  • 5 of 5

Well-appointed, very comfortable property in a beautiful location. We were a party of 5, and there was plenty of space for all of us. Well-Equipped kitchen with everything you'd need. Owner's rep (Rosie) was very friendly and helpful. Very easy to go for hikes from the door, with stunning views of the mountains all around. The apartment is set in a charming mountain village with plenty of places to relax, have a drink and eat. I more than happy to recommend it.

A fantastic place in the beautiful Sierra Nevada

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 days in the Mulhacen Penthouse. The flat is better than it looks on the website: it is well-kept, clean, equipped with everything you could need and the views really are as as fabulous as the other reviews say. The village is gorgeous - really friendly with lots of bars and restaurants and great food, and the surrounding area is just stunning. We are not particularly fit but we managed to do two hikes and some horse-riding with a local stable owner - all the details are in the very helpful info folder at the apartment. We really recommend this holiday rental and the beautiful Sierra Nevada and we hope to be back some time very soon.

Fantastic apartment in Guejar Sierra

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is ideally located to visit Granada, Alhambra Palace and gardens. Situated in a nice quiet area with breathtaking views from the veranda. It had everything that we could have wanted. Rosie was very helpful, we tried and bought some of her delicious jam. The village of Guejar Sierra has a lovely atmosphere. We got to explore and take part in village life, especially enjoying the tapas on Sunday beside the church in the village square. We look forward to returning again soon. Anne & Majella D.

Located in the relaxing and welcoming village of Guejar Sierra, a traditional spanish village with cobbled streets, a town square and a handful of tapas bars. There are also a few excellent restaurants within walking distance,

some of which have outside terraces and swimming pools which can be used by its summer guests.

From the village the historic city of Granada and its Alhambra Palace can be reached in under 20 minutes. The ski slopes of Sierra Nevada can be reached in approx 20 minutes (via the new mountain road). The beaches of Costa Tropical can be reached in approx 50 minutes. Stunning walks of all levels begin literally at the doorstep. Other activities including horse-riding, mountain-biking, canoeing, fishing and paragliding are also available. If you prefer a more relaxing break it is easy to spend the day visiting the bars (many of which still honour the tradition of free tapas) in the village and watch the world go by.

Ski: The apartment is ideally based for skiing at Europe's most southerly ski resort-Pradallono, Sierra Nevada. It is approx 25 mins away.

Sierra Nevada, which means 'Snowy Mountain Range', includes some of the highest peaks in Europe not to mention the highest concentration of peaks over 3,000m in the country. The Mulhacen, at 3482m, is Spain's mainland highest.

The ski resort of Sierra Nevada offers its visitors a wide range of facilities and a ski terrain to suit skiers & boarders of all standards. There are 70km of ski runs, 45 pistes and 300 snow machines guaranteeing snow on the slopes. There is also night skiing by floodlight!

As one of Europe's highest resorts it has a surprisingly long season and traditionally opens at the end of November running through to the end of April or even into the first week of May.

An important factor is that you are practically guaranteed sunshine throughout your stay! The resort is so far south the climate is superb for brushing up on your tan!
