That is a charming cave with a lush garden and terrace facing to Alhambra. The space is shared in three individual rooms, two are double and one is simple. The salón/kitchen is shared. The place is fresh in summer and cozy in winter, and for those sensitive to the cold, there is a chimeny and several electric heating.
The cave is placed on the heart of the genuine neighbourhood of Sacromonte, 5 minutes away from the most emblematic places for flamenco: La Venta El Gallo, El Carmen de la Cuevas, La Bulería, Escuela Flamenca Manolete y El Centro de Interpretación del Sacromonte. Also 15 minutes away from the neighbourhood Albaicin, where one can find all kind of shop, cafe-bar and restaurants, this is one of the best places for tapas in Granada. And, the cave it is 20 minutes away from the city center.
Easy to access from the center by taxi, bus number 35 , that one can take from the whole street Gran Via and Plaza Nueva. Walking it is 20 minutes from the center. If you come with car the access is restricted, cause this is a ancient neighbourhood, and it is protected.
The hause offer:
Garden and Terrace with chairs and tables
Two double rooms and one simple room
sheets, blankets and towels
Salon and equipped kitchen shared between guest
Toilet with accer from the garden
This cave was INCREDIBLE! Raquel was beyond kind and helpful!! She made our stay in Granada such a pleasure. She even helped us plan our quick trip to Chefchaouen, Morocco, which is a MUST do if you have time. The cave was comfortable and beautifully well kept by Raquel. The outside environment is comfortable and beautiful as well with a nice view of Alhambra. The bathroom is outside the cave but not far. There was plenty of hot water with fresh towels provided. Raquel provided us with breakfast food, coffee, extra blankets (it was quite cold), and more. The cave isn't extremely close to the city streets but it was well worth the walk each day through Sacramonte. It may have been my favorite part of each day. But if the walk feels too long you can also catch a bus. We would HIGHLY recommend staying with Raquel in the cave. Such a fun experience. I'm sad we weren't able to say goodbye the day we left in a hurry to Morocco. Muchisimas Gracias, Raquel!!
Everything was really fine and though March is still quite early in the year and the nights can be quite fresh, we really enjoyed our stay in Raquel's cave.
The whole area is very nice and from the terrace you have a wonderful look at the Alhambra.
Raquel was a perfect host - she welcomed us warmly and explained us briefly the most important things to know.
In the cave itself we didn't have WiFi, but you just step out and get a connection - anyway, for us, this didn't matter at all.
Interesting area, great views, friendly and helpful host. Hard to find. Make sure to arrive in daylight hours with plenty of time to get lost! A bit cold at night, but well-supplied and nicely decorated. Rustic bathroom shared with two other rooms.
Parfait. Raquel est très accueillante, chaleureuse et sympathique sans être "envahissante". La cave est un très joli endroit et le quartier dans lequel elle est située est très beau. J'ai adoré cette expérience. L'endroit st bel et bien atypique.
When i visited her house, she was traveling so i couldn't meet her.
But it was no problem because her friend was there for welcoming us. She was so nice, kind and lovely even though she couldn't speak English. However, she try to explain how to use Raquels' house by using dictionary. First time it was hard to find her house but her neighbors helped to finde it especailly, restuarant which has Flamenco performance. Her house was a little bit cold at the first night. It is Okay becuase her house is pretty and cozy.
If i visit Granad again, I will stay her house definetely.
I wish i can meet Raquel that time.
라켈은 우리 가족(4명)에게 매우 친절히 잘 대해주었습니다. 이틀 밤을 라켈의 집에서 보냈는데 약간 춥기는 했지만 멋진 추억을 가지게 해주었습니다.
라켈의 집은 매우 예뻤고 매일 아침 우리가 충분한 식사를 할 수 있도록 식빵, 달걀, 버터, 잼, 물 ,주스등을 제공해주었고 여자 세 명은 본인이 사용하는 집 안의 욕실도 사용할 수 있게 배려해주었습니다. 밤에는 알함브라궁전의 야경을 옥상에서 볼 수 있었고 궁전까지 25분 내외의 시간으로 걸어갈 수 있었습니다. 아침에 사크라멘토의 아름다운 지역을 지나면서 알함브라를 보며 걸어가는 기분도 좋았습니다. 공유기가 설치되어있지만 와이파이는 거의 안되었습니다. 하지만 전혀 불편하지않았고 집안이 어두워서인지 잠은 아주 푹 잤습니다. 다시 한번 라켈에게 인사하고 싶습니다. Raquel, thanks for your kindness. Muchas gracias por su amabilidad!
Raquel's place is perfect for people who looking for something exotic, situated in authentic district of Granada. Great cave, with great garden and separated terrace with incredible views at Alhambra.
Raquel is very nice and helpful person.
I definitely wanna come back!
Llegué a Granada desde Madrid hace 30 años, y los últimos 20 he vivido en el Sacromonte. Éste es un barrio que me permite vivir en paz, fuera del bullicio de la ciudad; y por el que, a la vez, pasa gente interesante que proviene de muy diferentes partes del mundo, enriqueciendo el barrio y sus vecinos, ocasionales o estables.
El flamenco fue y es una de las cosas que me trajo aquí, de hecho no es extraño que cualquier noche entre vecinos y amigos, nos reunamos a tocar y cantar. Sin embargo, tenerlo tan cerca me hace querer descansar de él a veces.
Tengo una hija que baila y vive por ahí viajando. A mi también me gusta viajar, y como invitada soy muy limpitica y apañada.
Ahora vivo tranquilamente en este barrio que se ha hecho mi hogar.
