With views of the centuries-old Alhambra palace and the soaring peaks of the Sierra Nevada, this very special property is one of the most unique in Granada. Furnished and decorated with the utmost care by the owner, this beautiful house is an effortless blend of classical Andalucian style and modern comforts and conveniences. Split over three levels, it is at once spacious and intimate. The open-plan living and dining room is bright and welcoming, and has been furnished in a discrete traditional style with original Andalucian furnishings and decoration. Wooden beams, tiled flooring, quality wooden furniture and an original fireplace make this a wonderful space to relax or enjoy a meal. The kitchen is in keeping with the classic Spanish style but has been fully-equipped with all modern appliances and everything guests may need during their stay. Each of the bedrooms has been individually decorated. The two double bedrooms offer breathtaking views of the Alhambra, the master bedroom also boasting a small terrace, perfect for enjoying breakfast or an after-dinner drink. The bathrooms are bright and elegant, with local tiles and fittings. The exterior of the property is equally charming, with a front garden complete with small swimming pool, fish pond and fountain and dining area. The roof-top terrace is a real highlight ? with unbeatable views to the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada, guests can enjoy an al-fresco meal with a difference. The house has an underground garage, or alternatively guests can make use of the bus that stops almost on the doorstep of the house, and which will take them directly to the heart of the city. The house is located in the Albaycin, one of the oldest and undoubtedly most atmospheric parts of the city. With typical white-washed Andalucian houses, flower-filled patios and tiny tabernas, this quintessential Granada barrio clambers up the hill overlooking the Alhambra. The Mirador de San Nicolas at the very top of the hill is the place to go in the early evening as the sun sets spectacularly over the Alhambra. The Albaycin is tranquil and quiet, and gives visitors a unique the opportunity to soak up the city?s history and charm.

The Andalucia region

If there is one region in Andalucia that truly captures that magic and romanticism of southern Spain, it is Granada. With the soaring Sierra Nevada mountains to the north and the and the Mediterranean Sea to the south, the area surrounding Granada offers visitors a unique historical and cultural view of Spain. The ancient city of Granada was once one of the world?s greatest cultural capitals and flourished under the 700 year Arab occupation of Spain. A treat for the senses, Granada city is home to a fascinating blend of Islamic and Christian architecture, narrow streets and intimate courtyards thick with the smell of orange blossom and jasmine. With a diverse student population and laid-back residents, it is famous throughout Spain for its vibrant nightlife and thriving restaurant scene. The Albaic?n and world-famous Alhambra, widely considered to be the most beautiful palace in Spain are not to be missed.


Beyond the city are ancient villages and a landscape so diverse that many locals boast that it?s the only place in the world where you go skiing in the morning and take a swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean in the afternoon. The northern reaches of the region are part of the Alhama Natural Park, a favourite of hikers, climbers and nature lovers. To the south is the sun-drenched Costa Tropical, with its sandy beaches and intimate whitewashed villages. The Valle de Lecr?n, literally translating to ?The Valley of Happiness? is situated to the south of Granada city, and with it comes a pace of life and natural beauty that has not changed for centuries. Founded by Moorish explorers in the 7th century, the 17 villages scattered throughout the valley are rich in culture and tradition, whilst the gentle hills surrounding them are perfect for walking. Whether you are looking to see some of Spain?s most beautiful monuments and structures in Granada city, wander through the tight streets of an ancient village in the valley, or simply relax and soak up the sun on the beach, the beautiful region of Granada offers visitors a true taste of Andalucia.
