This is a delightful town house in quiet street 5 minutes walk from the Alhambra and very close to Granada centre. We are in the safe and tranquil barrio of El Realejo.
We are very close to the vibrant areas of Plaza Nueva and Plaza Campo de Principe. In 5 minutes you can walk to the Alhambra Palace or stroll in the Alhambra woods.
The house has a traditional build and is fully modernised. Access is quite steep - so not suitable for those with restricted mobility.
There are two double bedrooms both with bathrooms and a lovely lounge with dining area and a fully equipped kitchen - including basic provisions such as herbs, spices and oils. There is a mid-sized terrace with fabulous views of the city, vega de Granada and mountains beyond.
In addition to the 2 bedrooms (one of the beds is superking size) there is also a double sofabed in the living room. All towels and linen are supplied.
Granada is an amazing place to base yourself - you can get to the coast near Motril in 45 minutes and the Sierra Nevada - including the ski station - yes skiing! - within half an hour. The house has guidebooks etc to help you plan your trips. It is equipped with most things you need for a trip to the beach - parasols, coolbox etc.
You can drive to the house but this is quite tricky PLEASE KINDLY NOTE - there are two streets with the same address in different parts of town. If you are driving DO NOT RELY ON GPS .. ask us for further details of your options and we can send you precise instructions of how to get here.
We look forward to welcoming you.
This is a residential street so please respect the neighbourghood.
No smoking except on the roof terrace
Sorry, no pets - this is so that other guests with pet allergies do not suffer
We absolutely LOVED our 4 days in Granada and this house was an important part of that. The location couldn't be better - 10 minutes walk to pretty much anywhere in the centre you'd want to go. It is wonderfully peaceful, totally equipped with everything you need and the roof terrace is fab with views of the sierra nevada. We never actually met Ruth as she was working when we arrived, but her friend was waiting with the keys. However, Ruth answered all my questions before and during the trip so quickly and thoroughly, I felt we had met! Thank you so much for a wonderful trip!
Beautiful apartment. Excellent location (even though like most of Granada it's on a hill! ). Will definitely stay here next time we are in Granda!
Loved staying here! No question was too much - Ruth answered everything without ever getting tired of us :-)
Parking is a bit of a challenge around the house, but once the car is out of the way, the place is in a perfect location.
The house was perfect, great location and amazing view. We loved hanging out on the terrace after long days exploring Granada. The house had everything we could need '
I'm so happy I chose this house as it definitely played a big part in us enjoying Granada even more than we would have. It's the perfect location and has plenty of charm and character which made us feel at home. The house has everything you need in terms of modern comfort and in addition has great views over the city. It's close to the centre, which is accessible in just a few minutes walking down some steps but it's really peaceful and quiet at night allowing for a good night sleep. Communication with Ruth was brilliant and she made sure we were really taken care of. I couldn't recommend this place any further and I will definitely stay here again if I return to Granada.
Ruth was there to great us and explained everything about the house clearly. Later, she offered to come and help us with the TV (though we were able to figure it out.)
Het was heerlijk vertoeven in dit huis! Vlak bij het centrum maar toch zo rustig in de volkse buurt Realejo! Zeer gezellige living, ruime en volledig uitgeruste keuken, terras met prachtige zicht over de stad, slaapkamer met comfortabel bed en goede douche, tweede badkamer met bad en ook kleine logeerkamer! Lekker warm te krijgen in de winter! Wij zijn er 3 weken geweest voor werk en elke avond was het uitkijken om de boeken- ,cd- en dvdcollectie verder te ontdekken. Ook alle communicatie is erg goed verlopen! We raden het sterk aan en hopen in de toekomst nog eens terug te kunnen gaan!!
I am hosting on behalf of my good friends Graham and Jo - an English couple that have been living and loving in Spain. They fully renovated this lovely house, however work and family stuff have taken them back to the UK for a while.
I have lived in and worked in Spain for 10 years now. I live very nearby to Calle Cruz De Piedra. I really enjoy hosting for my friends as I love meeting people from other countries and hearing their stories. If you are interested in learning Spanish or improving your English let me know. I can also help you with all want to know about the local area and things to do in Granada and surrounding areas.
