Further east, the imposing spectacle of the Moorish Alhambra, framed by the great backdrop of Sierra Nevada

호스트가 출장을 가서 직접 나오지 못했고, 친구 분이 대신 마중나와 주었는데, 아주 친절했습니다. 집도 사진 그대로이고, 이색적인 체험을 하고 싶은 사람에게는 완벽한 집이었습니다. 다만 우리가 체크인 하기 5일 전 집 수리를 하면서 벽에 일부 페인트 덧칠을 하였는데, 그 가루가 계속 떨어져서 계속 재채기를 하고, 잠자기가 힘들었습니다. 묵었던 2일 중에 1일은 괜찮았습니다.
Truly magical staying in the 'cave' . We were 2 couples -the separate bedrooms with complete modern bathrooms/ showers allowed us privacy.
The Main living space provided ample room to stretch out and enjoy evening meals. The kitchen was cosy but well supplied with pots and pans, the Fridge is large and cold and the water is very hot. The 2 outside patios we enjoyed the most as the early March weather was warm and sunny. The view is stunning and our sunsets there were gorgeous.
The property is a bit tricky to find at first and we were very gratefull to have our host meet us and lead the way. once we knew our way, we appreciated that we were midway between the art-sy district of plaza largo in the Albaicin above and access to buses and the bigger streets of Granada.
The streets and pathways are STEEP! We planned carefully before we left the house and travelled as lightly as possible up and down the hills. This house was a lovely place to return to and rest up for our next adventure!
We will endeavor to keep in shape well enough to be able to visit again someday!
Recommended, definitely. Good house in a world heritage district. This helps getting connected to the best areas (Plaza Nueva) by walking for about 10 minutes. The rooms are not completely separated from the main area (living room), and the bathroom in one has been designed to not have any door or curtain whatsoever. Other than that, really convenient. Good tapas bars nearby.
La casa es muy bonita y bien ubicada, hay todo lo necesario para disfrutar la estancia. La chimenea es genial para pasar las tardes frente del fuego.
El barrio es un lugar con mucho encanto. La casa está bien, aunque quizá necesitaría algo más de mantenimiento porque se desprenden trozos de techo y se ensucia todo. El mobiliario es bastante antiguo y las camas no son especialmente cómodas. Blanca y María han sido amables en todo momento.
We had a lovely time in the cave it was very charming and cosy. It's really close to town, about ten mins walk and your in the best area of Granada we were a bit lazy and got taxis back (which were really reasonable) as it is up a hill, but this does mean there is fantastic views. Also the cave has a lovely terrace with view and is really close to a shop if you want to cook. Really nice safe neighbourhood and a very friendly host who was excellent at staying in contact. We went in the winter but the cave was surprisingly warm and shower was really hot. We'd definitely stay again and had a really nice time.
Decir de mi estancia en granada en la casa de blanca y maria, que ha sido genial, muy bonita la casa, bien ubicada y con todo lo necesario para disfrutar de unos días con encanto en granada, por otra parte las anfitrionas son muy amables y hacen que sea muy fácil todo, muchas gracias

Hi, my name is Blanca, I'm from Madrid, although I have 20 years in Granada, came to study a course in college and I was delighted the city,so I decided to move to the Albayzin. Many of you will understand me when you know Granada ...
