Other things to note
This apartment is a lovely place to be whatever the season and is the perfect base for those who are seeking to combine a number of different elements into their holiday.
Güejar is a great base for a huge variety of activities - mountain biking, walks of all levels, climbing, canoeing, rafting, fishing, paragliding, horse-riding, winter skiing and summer fiestas. And all of this is only 20 mins from Granada - a great place to wander the tree-lined plazas, sample the tapas, listen to real flamenco and simply enjoy the traditional Spanish ambience of this lovely city.
This is also a great place to relax - whether topping up your tan on the sunny terrace, or simply watching the sun set behind the mountain while you enjoy a long tall glass of something.
The little village of Güejar Sierra, with its cobbled streets and flower draped balconies is something of an undiscovered gem. This is where the local Granadinos come to enjoy the best of all that the Sierra Nevada can offer.
The location is also only half an hour from the ski resort, and the pretty coves of the Costa Tropical are within easy reach (45 mins) - with some great 'chiringuitas' where you can eat fresh fish right on the beach.
The traditional white village of Guejar Sierra itself has great tapas bars, restaurants, local shops, pharmacy, bank and two lovely pools in summer. Our friendly keyholders are happy to give advice and can help organize chef services, tapas tours, hiking, biking, horse-riding, canoeing, treasure hunts for children and babysitting.
Guejar Sierra is also famous for its cherries - so just ask our keyholders if you wish to sample some local, organic, cherry jam!
Sierra Nevada ski resort:
The apartment is ideally placed for skiing at Pradollano (Sol y Nieve Ski Resort) in the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada boasts the highest downhill runs in Europe as well as being the most southerly - so it often enjoys better snow than the Alps. The resort - with its superb services and installations was built for the Winter Olympics and 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. The resort is so far south that the climate is superb for brushing up on your tan and on clear days there are views of Africa from the top!
For larger groups of friends wishing to travel together - we can rent the apartment together with the small 1 bedroomed apartment next door, or with a choice of 2 bedroomed apartments in the same building.
