Overview

About the property

Very central four bedrooms apartment in Granada - Easy access and private parking.

The property is located at the lower South-East end of Granada's main shopping street, "Calle Recogidas", ideally placed for a very easy exploration of the town. A gentle stroll up Calle Recogidas and you reach the Gothic part of the town in just 10 minutes, with the cathedral and surrounding areas. Continuing North-West for 10 more minutes you reach Plaza Nueva, the gate to the Arab part of the town, with its famous Alhambra and Albaizin quarters.

The apartment is right at the heart of the commercial part of the town, where most of its famous "Tapas Bar" are concentrated, yet the apartment itself is very quite. Indeed, most bedrooms have windows to quite streets, while the living area open to ample streets and squares, so that it is full of light.

Additionally, the building is wheel chair accessible.

Granada may be cold in winter and hot in summer, but certainly not in this apartment. Central heating and full house Air Conditioning assures that you have the right temperature all year around.

If you come to Granada by car, the apartment has an easy connection with the main motorway. Additionally, you can park the car right at the property, since the parking garage and the apartment are in the same building. So, get out of the car and take the elevator home, that simple. In a town full of history like Granada (but with small streets and sometimes complicated access), easy access and parking may be quite convenient. If your prefer to take a bus, there are plenty of bus stops in a radius of less than 50 meters

A one-car parking space is already included in the price.

About Jose Maria

We are a Spanish couple in our fifties, living in Madrid. We know the Granada area very well, since we were born the two of us in that beautiful town.

We enjoy going back to Granada from time to time, but we seldom manage to do so more than a couple of times during the year, and never for too long.

We wanted to have a house in town, very central, close to everything and yet quite..... and this is the house you are renting. A true family house carefully selected to provide a very pleasant stay in town.

Jose Maria purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Jose Maria chose Granada

We are, my wife and me, from Granada. We were born there and, obviously, we know very well the town.

We wanted to have an apartment very close to the center but modern, quite but near to all attractions, with a parking spot and easy access when you arrive in town.... and this is the place you are now renting: The house we chose as a perfect combination for a stay in Granada.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is at the corner of the main shopping street of Granada, "Recogidas", less than a hundred meter to some of the best tapas quarters in town, with very easy access by car, with its own parking area, and very close to the main touristic spots of Granada.

Of course, since we know very well the area, we can advice you some of the best places to go, perhaps not in tourist guides.

Love the apartment, totally exceed expectation.

  • 5 of 5

It's very large apartment, very well decorated, and stuffed with more amenities than one could expect. Feels like someone is sharing their own home with you, and feels like you coming to your own home, since the home is stuffed with supplies, appliances working, and is very comfortable.

The location is ideal. It is only a short walk to the main town center, yet, you are in the middle of where normal town people live, not at all a touristic part of town.

The host is very reachable, and very responsive. Thank you for sharing and managing such a wonderful home.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the easy accessibility to the center of Granada downtown area! The apartment was just right for 6 people! Comfortable, clean, spacious and definitely safe -- we would definitely recommend this place! Jose Marie/Álvaro were all very accommodating -- and got back to us immediately ! The apartment came complete with everything -- from dish soap to shampoo to toilet paper--- they provided everything ! A+++

Very nice, spacious Granada apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were initially attracted to this property due to the parking availability. Prior to our stay Jose Maria sent a very detailed arrival procedure and area information. On arrival we were met by Jose Maria's nephew Alvaro and he showed us the parking space and oriented us to the apartment. The apartment is on the 3rd floor of the building (elevator available) and was very clean and spacious. The living room overlooks a busy street, however the bedrooms are located at the back of the apartment where it is very quiet. The location is very good, easy 20 minute walk to the cathedral/city center. On the day we visited the Alhambra we elected to take a taxi, since the walk would have been a very strenuous up hill climb! During our stay we took advantage of the laundry facilities and prepared a number of meals when we did not want to eat out. Thank you Jose Maria for providing us a fantastic place to stay while we toured Granada!

Lovely Third Floor Apartment with Parking Space

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment on Camino de Ronda, just 10 minutes walk from the cathedral and Plaza Nueva, another 10-15 minutes up the hill to the Alhambra or viewing areas of the Albaicin. The parking spot was easy to navigate in a small car and was a bonus. Alvaro met us and was a great help throughout, always available to answer a question.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples in our late twenties/early therties, and we were looking for an apartment large enough for everybody to have its own space, very central, and with a parking garage in the same building... and that is exactly what we got! When we arrived at Granada, Alvaro, Jose Maria's nephew, was already waiting for us to show us around the house. We then realized how large and clean the apartment was: we never felt cramped. It is in the center of Granada but yet, really quiet. You can go walking anywhere (Granada is not a good town for driving a car). There were lots of bars and restaurantes around, as well as several small supermarkets. We tried a couple of the bars Jose Maria recomended, and we really liked them. We will definitly stay here again.

Awesome apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples biking through southern Spain and stayed at this apartment for 3 nights. The checkin was very easy and the apartment had everything we needed, plus extras. The small things such as salt and pepper,olive oil and even washing machine soap came in very handy. The location of the apartment was very close to all sites. I would highly recommend staying at this very large, clean and beautiful apartment.

Special interest holidays:

A visit to a rich cultural town like Granada has many facets attached to it. Certainly you already know about Alhambra and the arab quarter of Albaicin. Probably you also know about the famous Granada Tapas and its flamenco dancing.... but there is much more to see!

Profiting from the fact that we are "locals" and we know very well Granada,

at the time of booking we will be sending a small Guide with very good local tips.

Travel:

Granada has its own airport, and the trip to Granada from this airport can be done either by taxi or by a shuttle. It is also easy to reach Granada by train

Still, if you come by plane, you may find a larger choice at Malaga Airport, which is 140 km from Granada. At both airports, naturally, you can rent a car.

Further Details:

You will enjoy being at a rather busy area, with shops, restaurants and tapas bars all around, while resting at a very quite "home"
