The apartment is in the lowest part of the Albayzin closest to the true centre of town which is Plaza Nueva. But it is still a five minute walk uphill from the centre which some people may find difficult.

Apartment 1B has a spacious terrace accessed from the living room. Outdoor table and reclining chairs provided for dining or sunbathing.

"Comfortable and very central"
Very comfortable apartment. Good airconditioning which was needed in August and comfortable beds. Coffee on the terrace in the mornings looking at the mountains was a particular treat. The apartments are in the Albaicin which is the beautiful old quarter of Granada however this also meant it was quite tricky driving to the apartment and it was a relief that we had booked the apartment´s parking space. Jamie the housekeeper was very helpful. We hope to come back one day

"Great flat in the heart of Granada"
Our party of 4 had a great holiday in this flat. It is very well kept, the lady who looks after it living just downstairs, is a short downhill walk to the Plaza Nueva and an even shorter one to the nearest restaurants. The street outside is very quiet - this is the Albaicin and there are just a few cars a day driving by. Despite outside temperatures reaching 40C, the air-conditioning kept the place cool and we had no trouble sleeping through the hottest part of the day.

We just wanted to say that we had an awesome time in Granada! The apartment is lovely and well maintained. The location is ideal and, having stayed there, we have a greater appreciation for the Albaycin. Jamie was especially kind and helpful. He is knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating. We enjoyed ourselves and will return to Granada as soon as time and fortune allow. (Trish & Dan, May 09)
'Thanks for a great apartment, we had a brilliant break! I have to say the beds were really comfortable and the pillows also, which you don't often find in holiday homes! Everything was there for us, and we just loved it.' (Gilly and Arthur, November 07)
Thank you for a very nice stay at your apartment in Granada. It’s a cosy spot and a great location. Particularly liked the roof terrace which we made good use of, even in the middle of winter. (Tim Kaye, January 08)
