At home you’ll enjoy a nice and peaceful 600m2 garden and a refreshing 32m2 swimming-pool for summer holidays.
Inside the house you’ll find
-A sitting-room with a fireplace, TV, DVD and CD sets.
-5 bedrooms, all equipped with double beds (bedding supplied ).
-A full-fitted kitchen- an electrical cooker and oven, a microwave oven, a toaster, an orange-squeezer, fridge and washing-machine.
-2 bathrooms (towels included ).
-2 terraces with a spectacular view over Granada city and surroundings.
-A garage with parking-space for two cars.
-And for those mad for rock-climbing a great “artificial climbing wall “.
- Central heating in all the rooms.
Las fiestas no están permitidas, la zona es muy tranquila y los vecinos se quejan si hay ruido
Estrella est une personne sympa et arrangeante et la maison est spacieuse et correspond à la description.
Wonderful location with fantastic views. Estrella gave us a very warm welcome which included a present of some home-made goats cheese! Two families with small children we really liked the local village, don't think we saw any other tourists once!
Estrella was very good with communication and arranged for her son to let us in and show us around. the house was perfect for a big group. The house is comfortable but not glamorous and the wifi was intermittent but Estrella fixed it for us. The garden and pool area is fantastic and the ping pong table was much appreciated by all! The area is not glamorous but there are lovely walks in the Sierra Nevada very close and it is only 20 minutes to Granada by car. For the price we were very happy and glad to recommend this property. Thanks Estrella and sons!
Estrella se mostró muy amable y dispuesta a ofrecernos todo lo necesario. La casa corresponde exactamente con el anuncio y es perfecta para grupos grandes porque hay espacio de sobra para que todos se sientan cómodos. Además, es un barrio muy tranquilo, perfecto para descansar. Cada noche me quedaba un rato observando las vistas de Granada y el atardecer desde la casa en mitad del silencio.
Es ideal para combinar ciudad y montaña, como hicimos nosotros, pues está muy cerca del pueblo de Monachil del que salen varias rutas de senderismo, y también cerca de Granada (el bus interurbano tarda unos 35 min y está bien de precio). Siempre vas a tener un entretenimiento en esta casa.
Una última gran ventaja es que tiene tiendas y supermercados cerca (incluso un 24h).
En resumen unas estupendas vacaciones a buen precio.
Estrella is a fantastic host who helps all the time. She is always available and goes out her way to help.
The house is exactly as described and fulfilled its function perfectly for us.
The pool area was great as it was very hot when we were there. Lots of shade too as well as sun.
Bathrooms and kitchen worked fine and most rooms had extra fans which were needed during nights.
Location of the house wasnt as we expected but was great with a short 15 min drive to Granada. Buses worked well when we figured them out. Taxis too.
The most difficult for us was that no one in the village spoke English at all so we had to survive with our shameful attempts at spanish.
It was the school holidays when we were there so lots of things were closed in the village which was a shame.
The option to buy breakfast each day through a friend of Estrella was great.
The house is old but is clean and fully functional. It is a little hard to find tucked away down some narrow streets and gps didnt cover this.
All in all brilliant value for money and quite charming especially the landlady herself
We were a large Family group flying in from 3 different European Countries for a 2 week Holiday, and we were a little nervous as what to expect !!!!
But the House and our Hostess exceeded our expectations.
It is a large (older) Family home built in real Spanish tradition in a village where no one speaks anything but Spanish. The large very shady garden with table tennis, grill, climbing wall, Swimming pool and different seating places was enjoyed and appreciated by all.
Swimming pool was fantastic (no chemicals) BUT all one depth which initially seemed a problem with 3 young children, but within a few days they were all jumping in and Swimming around with no problem (a blessing in disguise ?)
Lots to do and see nearby, beautiful City of Granada, Saturday market in nearby village Zaiden, walking, climbing and swimming (in freezing pools) in Los Cahorros, Aquaola Water Park, and drive to the coast 40 min, we were not impressed by the beaches (thick fog till arounf 14.00 which apparently normal this time of the year) but Old town of Almunücar was fantastic
Monachil is a very small village but does have different Food Shopping possibilities, a few good restuarants and tappa bars, within walking distance, so we could all enjoy the local drinks without worring about driving back!
Estrella was a very friendly and helpfull Hostess and whenever she came around to clean the pool gave us advice and answered all our questions. We could also contact her via sms and she would answer a.s.a.p.
I no WE would all highly recommend this House to anyone wanting a relaxing, authentic Spanish Holiday away from the Tourist Rat Race

Hola Soy Estrella.
Me gusta mucho recibir a gente y ayudarles a hacer de estos días que están en mi casa algo especial. Cuando era joven mi madre decía que tenía que ser posadera, siempre tenía amigos en casa. Cumpliendo sus predicciones, os invito a que conozcáis mi posada: La Posada del gato.
A veces acompaño a los huéspedes en alguna excursión y les doy ideas de lo que pueden ver y hacer por aquí. Cerca de la casa hay mucho para disfrutar:
.Paseos a pie, en bici, a caballo
.Vuelos en parapente
.Una magnífica zona de escalada (la casa tiene un estupendo rocódromo en el garaje)
.Visitas culturales a Granada, esta a sólo 4 km y el autobús para ir al centro esta a 50 metros de la casa
.Muchos sitios para disfrutar la noche, en el pueblo hay varios bares con espectáculos no turísticos donde disfrutar del arte local
Hablo francés y me defiendo en inglés.
