Casa Isabella covered in terracota floor tiling throughout, and whitewashed walls, consists of a large entrance hall. A spacious living/diner with it´s original wood beamed ceiling and thick stone walls. A typical well equipped Andulician style kitchen, that opens onto a sunny terrace with BBQ and patio furniture for outside dining. There is a good sized bedroom with double bed. A walk in shower and separate W.C. This one bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep upto 4 people with use of the double sofabed in the lounge. Facilities include free internet, TV with uk freeview channels plus Spanish channels, DVD player and selection of films. Linen and towels provided.

On stepping out of the apartment we find ourselves in a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets taking us through the history of the Arabic quarter between it´s houses and monuments: the Cathedral de la Incarnation, Wamba fountain ,the castle……. Lost amongst it´s architecture and alleyways we soon refind ourselves on the path into the impressive gorge with it´s old mills, river and nature in all it´s splendour. On another route we encounter the hot thermal springs which give the Arabic name to this town, located a ten minute stroll away. The main town centre with it´s modern amenities is a 5 minute walk away, banks, shops ,restaurants and numerous bars offering a selection of good wines and drinks served with their delicious complimentary tapas that vary with the proud culinary touch of each bar.In search of relaxation and refreshment we have two public swimming pools, one of which has one of Alhama's best restaurants. There are two spas offering Arabic baths, massages and an array of therapeutic treatments.

In the region around Alhama enhancing some of Spain´s most spectacular scenery, we have lake Bermejales 12km away with it´s beaches ,fresh water for swimming, practising non motorized wáter sports, or enjoying a lakeside picnic as the locals love to do. Sierras Tejada,Almijara and Alhama national park incorporates the area and is great for hiking. The Sierra Nevada with it´s snow capped mountains seen in winter with an unspoilt view from town is an hour and half away by car and offers skiing in winter. The beaches at Costa del Sol are a breathtaking hours drive and Granada City 40 minutes. For the more energetic cycling, horse riding ,and climbing are all available and can be organised from town.

Granada airport is 40 minutes drive away, and Malaga 1hr30.

"Intimate hideaway in a historic pueblo"

We chose to spend a week in Alhama de Granada based partly on the listing for Casa Isabella. It was a good choice. Alhama is a beautiful and ancient village of 6,000 perched on a deep gorge in the mou… More

"Loved it!"

I love Alhama and have been there twice. The second time almost felt like going home as the people are so friendly and remember you. Casa Isabella is a great authentic place to stay - lovely little patio area for breakfast and nice and cool indoors for summer siestas. Gary is a great host - a font of useful information and always available if you need help with anything.

"I really think you should go here..."

Thoroughly enjoyable stay in lovely,sympathetically restored house situated in a charming town which has everything one could wish for to enjoy an authentic experience of Spain.
There are any number of bars with enthusiastic / eccentric owners all of whom provide tapas as a matter of course with drinks ordered and they tend to close when the customers want rather than when they've had enough for the evening.

The town is situated on the side of a magnificent gorge which affords a good walk at the end of which you are rewarded with the best restaurant in Alhama - have the ribs- and a hôtel that boasts an outdoor pool.There are ample opportunities for walkers among the olive trees and hills although in the height of summer I found the quiet refuge of a cool bar with a glass of 'Tinto de Verano' and a salted cod tapas far more appealing.

The townsfolk are hospitable and accommodating,and are more than helpful with enquiries concerning...well,anything really.

My trip in September was my second to Alhama and it proved to be as enjoyable as the first,a rarity in itself,but then Alhama with its people, gorge and bars could hardly fail to call me back.

"A fabulous property in an ideal location"

My husband and I still can't believe our luck with finding such a fabulous place to stay at a reasonable cost. Everything we needed was provided for us and the apartment was clean and comfortable. It is furnished very tastefully with all mod cons. Alhama itself is a wonderful and picturesque town with numerous lovely walks and superb bars and tapas. We will definitely be rebooking.
