About Pam Yule

Back in 2004 Neil and I swapped our busy, city-based lives in the UK for rural bliss in southern Spain and feel much happier and healthier as a result. Looking after people on holiday is refreshing and fun and we're loving having the opportunity to explore our wonderful adopted country.

Pam Yule purchased this house in 2005

Why Pam Yule chose Alhama de Granada

We fell in love with the rugged wildness of the mountains around Alhama then we fell in love with the charms of this lively, beautiful and relaxing little town. The coast and great cities are close by but Alhama feels tucked away from all that hustle and bustle.

What makes this house unique

We got the idea of providing fabulous, great value accommodation whilst travelling in 2002. We know that going on holiday can cost a fortune and we feel that you shouldn't have to pay the earth to stay in beautiful accommodation. Our houses are traditional village houses which we have lovingly restored – you'll find lots of period features including beamed ceilings & antique tiled floors; cosy and charming our houses are also modern and stylish. Our travelling experience taught us that attention to detail is very important and we provide lots of little extras so that you can relax & have a lovely holiday. We aim to create something special - a comfortable home-from-home feeling and you can see we've had great feedback if you look at our guests' comments on our website.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and Chris, our first guests, wrote the following in our Comments Book: "Accommodation quite superb, tastefully and artistically decorated - enjoy!"

Alizon and John, our 2nd guests, wrote: "We had a brilliant time and don't want to leave! Alhama is stunning - we had seen the photographs but nothing prepares you for the breathtaking scenery. The casa is beautiful and no effort spared to make us comfortable. It was like being at home - even the music was to our taste!"

Phil, Em, Rik & Hannah, our third guests, wrote: "We have enjoyed our week's stay in this lovely house, very quiet and peaceful. The sun terrace is lovely and we spent the majority of our time up there. Lovely beach at Torre del Mar. Lake Bermajales and hot springs a must!"

Casa Equina Alhamade Granada 5th to 15th March 2018

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being close to the town centre with its amenities. We were fitter at the end of our stay as the property was near the top of town and the centre and particularly the Friday market were not so high above sea level. Also the steps between each of the 3 floors were quite high. The weather was unseasonally poor and at first the property was hard to keep warm. Unfortunately we could not make good use of the roof terrace in view of the poor weather. The property is imaginatively renovated and well stocked with all you need except a microwave (if that is important to visitors). The surrounding area is stunning in every direction and we enjoyed our car trips to local reservoirs, Velez de Malaga, Granada, Riofrio for the fish lunch and several villages.

We stayed for 3 days in November and would have loved to stay for longer. This property is so thoughtfully put together - full of character and tastefully presented with attention to detail which made a difference to our enjoyment of staying there. It is also excellent value for money. We would like to return one day.

A wonderful casa. Excellent facilities. Amazingly friendly, helpful, professional hosts.

The casa is located in walking distance from the bars, shops and the amazing gorge; Los Tajos.

Alhama de Granada is a typical Spanish village, but with so much to offer to a visitor.

Your hosts, Pam and Neil, give a lot of advice and suggestions to guests so they can thoroughly enjoy their time in Alhama.

You will not be disappointed.

Perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous little house with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The roof terrace a real bonus, perfect for lazing in the sun and al fresco dining. Made to feel really welcome both at Casa Esquina and in the town. Will definitely by back.

super stylish flat in friendly village

  • 5 of 5

Casa Esquina is a fantastic wee house in Alhama - really cleverly renovated and with interesting artwork, so there's always something interesting to look at. The flat is very clean and well furnished - everything is a good size and really comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with useful supplies like teas, sugar, herbs etc so you don't need to buy much but there's a fantastic little supermarket with fresh veg and bread practically next door. Lots of stairs and steps, but all wide and solid with good rails. You have to be reasonably flexible to get out onto the roof terrace as it's a low door, at the top of some stairs, but there's a wee balcony off the living area too, so you can get fresh air there, and there are windows all around the property with different views. The wifi works really well, and we enjoyed the large selection of cd's.

The booking was smooth and friendly and the owners continued to be helpful during our stay.

We enjoyed Tony's and another couple of bar/restaurants just down the road - excellent great-value home-cooked food.

We walked along the gorge a few times to a small reservoir and drove over to the big one, where we also hired bikes from the campsite there. I also got the bus into Granada one day which was easy. Sandy did a lot of birdwatching and is list is on the Casa Esquina/ Alhama Accommodation site.

Feeling like a Local in Authentic Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Beginning of May I have spent two weeks in Casa Esquina in Alhama de Granada. If you wish to slow down your life a few paces and really relax, that is the place you need to go.

Pam and Neil provide a cosy and tastefully refurbished home that makes you feel part of this medieval town. Lots of information is provided with things to see and to do including the best places to eat and where to do your shopping. No chance of getting bored!

A lovely touch was the starter kit of food I found on my arrival with a fresh loaf of artisan bread, butter, free range eggs and a bottle of good red local wine.

There are also great places for eating out (very reasonably priced!), glorious food and free tapas with your glass of wine or beer. Can definitely recommend the “El Ventorro” (lunch only, after 14.00) after having had a bath in their Hamman or after having walked from Alhama through the fascinating gorge.

If you have a car, a trip over the pass and down to the coast can be recommended. The trip takes exactly 50 minutes. My tip would be to go to Nerja with its several beaches and crystal clear water, a lovely town without high build hotels. Visiting the Alhambra in Granada is also a must, but book well in advance of your holiday!

From the time of my first contact I felt very well taken care of by Pam and Neil. All my questions were answered immediately and on arrival I was also given an emergency contact, in case they were away. Everything one might need was provided including DVDs, beach towels, even straw hats! I had my laptop with me and the internet connection was excellent.

All in all, it was a great holiday. I could have easily stayed on and will certainly be back. Thank you very much, Pam and Neil!

All the usual water sports including wind-surfing, sailing, para-gliding and scuba diving are very popular from La Herradura in particular. The towns are attractive and have traditional architecture, old barrios with flower laden balconies and twisting cobbled lanes, and lots of restaurants.


Granada airport is a very easy 45 mins drive. Malaga airport is also straightforward and about 1 hour 20 mins drive. We have comprehensive directions so let us know if you need them. We offer airport pick-up as well.

45 mins to Granada (there's a bus service too).

Further Details:

Casa Esquina has a great little supermarket 3 doors down. Five minutes away, the centre of Alhama has banks, shops, bars and restaurants. There´s a busy market with local crafts, fruit, veg, plants, flowers, clothes, etc every Friday.

Alhama de Granada, in the fertile heart of the Poniente Granadino in Southern Andalucia, is the perfect holiday destination. The town of Alhama offers history dating from Roman times through Moorish reign and up to modern days. Alhama is very attractive, traditional, bustling and precariously positioned running along the edge of an enormous limestone gorge, Los Tajos. Along the bottom of the gorge run the Rios Alhama and Merchan. Nearby, hot springs gurgle into four thermal pools next to the Rio Merchan. The town has grand, imposing Medieval architecture and lively bars surrounding attractive squares. Surrounding Alhama are soft, pastel shaded rolling hills, attractive small villages and stunning views extending to looming mountain ranges.

Alhama is perfectly situated, close enough for: an easy day or overnight trip to the splendid cities of Granada and Malaga; the sea air of the attractive seaside towns of Nerja and Almunecar; and the striking and exhilarating mountain regions of the Sierra Nevada and the Sierras Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara which offer great walking and wintersports.

Everywhere you look the view stretches as far as the eye can see and takes in gentle hills, green valleys and craggy moonscape mountain peaks. The Natural Park of the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama offer secluded picnic areas, usually next to a river or lake, and lovely walks. For hiking, the peak of La Maroma is at 2,080m and offers year round snow in chasms at the summit and wonderful views of the area.

The attractive towns of Loja (40 mins), Montefrio (1 hour), Antequera (1 hour) and Archidona (1 hour) are all an easy, scenic drive away.

Fabulous Sevilla and Cordoba are only 2 hours away.

Bike hire, walk/hike/cycle tours available.
