Condo/Apartment
One of two apartments we converted in 2009. Our privileged central position really will allow you to make the most of your stay in Granada. Plaza Nueva is the historic centre of the city, situated between the Alhambra and the Albayzin (the old Moorish quarter). Although not far from the hustle and bustle of the centre and the cathedral, the property nestles in a residential pedestrian street beneath the outer wall of the Alhambra close to its woods. It is a tranquil neighbourhood where bird song replaces car horns! Note that we are situated on the Alhambra Hill with 50 steps up to the house, so if you have mobility problems, our apartment is probably not for you!!!

Registered with the Andalusian Tourist Authority, Nº: VFT/GR/00219 Richard and Esperanza, the English/Spanish owners, have lived for over 20 years in the property, and being close at hand are more than happy to share their extensive local knowledge: whether it be to recommend restaurants and bars, the best flamenco clubs, or essential info. regarding visits to the Alhambra and other historical sites. Richard is a producer of local cultural events, so can keep you well informed in this respect. Esperanza is an international artist with a ceramic studio situated off the patio. Her work is used in the decoration of the apartment If you are keen on walking/hiking/biking, we can suggest some wonderful trails that lead up above the Alhambra, or along by the river through Sacromonte.

Alhambra Hill, Apartment A is a no-frills, modestly-priced option in a city with many over-priced tourist hotels. What you get is pretty much what you see advertised on TripAdvisor. If you do not require luxury, the apartment will be fine. What you can't see is...More

Situated in the old cobbled hilly area of the Realejo, near the Plaza Nueva but tucked away, this apartment was just perfect. Overlooking a patio filled with sweet smelling wisteria and jasmine, and a lemon tree, we could also see one of the lower towers...More

About the neighbourhood
Granada's history and natural beauty make it one of the most interesting cities to visit. The incredible Alhambra, with its fortress, palaces and gardens, is the crowning monument to the 700 year Moorish presence in Andalucia. But the Alhambra is just one of many historical sites in Granada. The beautiful churches, monasteries, palaces and gardens are too numerous to describe here! However, it is not only the individual monuments that are Granada's attraction. To simply wander through the ancient Moorish quarters of the Albayzin and Realejo is a treat in itself! Add to this the fact that the 500 year old University's 60,000 students lend a young and vital aspect to Granada's character. The vibrant night-life, the numerous tapas bars, live flamenco and other music, are not to be missed. The...
Getting around
The central historic area of Granad where we are situated is a relatively small area and is accessible by foot. This really is the best way to appreciate Granada, with stunning views and beautiful streets and buildings around every corner!! Having said that, bring suitable footware, because many of the alley ways are cobbled, and Granada is a hilly city. If you don't feel up to walking everyware, there is a small sized public bus that could take you up to the Albayzin and there is also a 'get off and on' mini toursit 'train'.
