Photos and Description of this San Pedro holiday house

Large house, 2 bedrooms, fully equipped, central heating

Large house (150 m2), ideal for 4 people, with central heating. It has a large kitchen (it can eat comfortably 6 persons), fully equipped (fridge, stove, oven, full kitchen utensils, washing machine, etc. It has two bedrooms with double beds, a bathroom and a toilet, large lounge (over 30 m2) with sound chain.

It is a traditional house, with stairs, so IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH DIFFICULTIES IN YOUR MOBILITY

 No passage of cars

The Albaicin is a neighborhood of great character, which gives one of the major hallmarks of Granada. Located on a hillside opposite the Alhambra. It is configured by a network of narrow, winding streets where walking is easy and suggestive; small streets leading to hidden squares, full of atmosphere.

the house is decorated in antique style, with wooden ceilings.

For its special characteristics, infants and children only allowed from 12 years

ACCESS: Car, taxi and bus.

The Albaicin is a neighborhood of Arab origin, so there are narrow streets inaccessible to cars.

I recommend leaving the car park in the center of Granada and go by taxi (first time).

There are good bus service.

To find parking, we will explain where is the nearest and directions (we provide you the coordinates).

Coordinates: 37 180 138, -3. 592,899

The neighborhood has many pedestrian streets, so it is advisable to move within walking

TIPS TO SEE: Tourist visit to Granada and the Alhambra, the Albaicín, Sacromonte (with its cave-dwelling), bars and restaurants in town.

Sierra Nevada (skiing, hiking) to 30 Km, 60 Km Beaches.

It has very interesting surroundings: cities like Guadix (famous for its cave-dwelling), Loja Las Alpujarras, the Lecrin Valley. And a little further, Cordoba, Jaen and Sevilla.

Granada is typical for its 'tapas' bars.

And if you like flamenco, you can enjoy your 'zambras', an approach to granaino Flamenco

Paradise within Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I'll just echo what others have said here. The house is wonderful, with everything – and I mean everything – you could possibly want; just bring a toothbrush. And that terrace – the best views of not only the Alhambra, but all of Granada as well. I could easily live here the rest of my life.

Just a word of warning for those disinclined to walk – you're gonna walk to get there. Uphill. Many times. Over cobblestones and steps in a maze of streets. There's no way to get there via car, just maybe a five minute downhill walk from where a taxi can drop you off. If you've got a car in Granada, you should just turn it in – you won't need it and won't be able to park anywhere close. And if you're hauling a bunch of suitcases, pack lighter. The house itself is spread out over four floors, so just going to breakfast in the morning is going to require stairs. All that said, the reward for all this is being in a very quiet neighborhood in the middle of a big, bustling city. It feels more like you're in a small village (indeed, you kind of are).

Gorgeous Andaluz house in the heart of it all

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous quirky house in Albaicin set over 4 floors (including the fabulous roof terrace with the best view of Alhambra). Within walking distance to town and Sacromonte (old gypsy quarter) and enjoying a lovely position with an unrivalled view of not only the palace but the environs of Granada. I could have stayed here for a very long time. Everything you could want can be found in the house, the kitchen is well-stocked to prepare your own food and the beds are very comfy.

The photos do not do the property justice, you will not be disappointed. Victoria is lovely, very accommodating and knowledgeable. We were able to contact at any point during our stay with any queries. We walked everywhere and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property. Enjoy!!

Enchanting, beautful, buzzing, yet laid back city

  • 5 of 5

The property was eclectic, charming and lovely. It was spotlessly clean and situated in a lovely part of Albaicin. My wife and I came to Granada to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and it was certainly a time to remember. We were met by charming friends of the owner who showed us round the home. The rooms are lovely and cool at all times of the day. The real bonus was the rooftop terrace. The uninterrupted views of the Alhambra were breath taking and we could never tire of the view, especially looking towards it in different light/times of the Albaicain was buzzing but it was also very relaxing and we certainly slept well. It was quite good fun sat on the roof terrace listening to the different walking tours and watching people go about their lives. No traffic !

We walked all over Granada, there is a very efficient and cost effective public transport, but we saw so much more by doing it on foot. We went up and down into Granada numerous times in our stay and found different routes back up to the house. Our legs certainly felt the strain!

The Alhambra is a must and found the guided tour we had pre booked really good as it gives you the full history. It does need more than one visit to see all of it. The Royal chapel and cathedral are absolutely stunning and take your breath away. The convent of St Jeronimo was even more impressive. The cafes and restaurants are of really good quality, very reasonable prices and the staff extremely friendly and efficient. We felt very welcome wherever we went.

Granada is such a lovely city, so nice not to be bothered by street hawkers and the like (except for ladies with Rosemary outside the cathedral and the shoe shine man we must have told "No" quite a few times).

A must is also the flamenco night at La Planteria. Its only a couple of hundred yards from the house. It is only open on Thursdays and if you haven't pre-booked then you cant get it. I booked by email before the visit. Look it up on the web. It was a fantastic evening, the flamenco was an experience to remember. Not touristy as some are if you venture into Granada of Socremento. This show will fascinate you, the music, the singing and the dancing had everyone in awe.

We will definitely visit Granada again and would try to book the same lovely house again. We would recommend this as a must see city for culture lovers

Exceeded my expectations - a fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This triplex house is situated right in the Albaycin - one of the most ancient and historic parts of the city. The house itself is beautifully furnished and quintessentially authentic to the charms of the region and the style. It was cool, spacious and beautifully maintained. The best part is the deck - a huge, planted terrace overlooking the Alhambra and all the surrounds, with birds singing and musicians strumming below.

Victoria was very helpful and responsive and because she was out of town when I arrived, had a friend meet me to greet and show me around the house. Extremely receptive to questions and very friendly.

If you are looking for beauty and regional authenticity with a gorgeous view of the city, this is the place for you. Be aware that this part of town is steep and requires walking, so it's for those who love to travel by foot. But that is really Granada as a whole.

Thanks Victoria for a remarkable experience.

Wonderful house in the Albaicin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three wonderful weeks in the Casa Victoria in March. The house is exactly as advertised. It is comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and the views from the roof terrace are spectacular. It is a short walk to the center of the Albaicin and ten minutes from the center of town. Victoria was the perfect host, extremely helpful and always available to answer any questions and she gave us great recommendations of places to eat and things to see. Highly recommended for visitors to Granada.

Gracias Victoria

Wonderful place to stay in Granada

  • 5 of 5

By far the most spectacular place we have stayed in Spain, this house in the Albaycin neighborhood has it all:

wonderful views, interesting architecture, fabulous decor, and breathtaking daytime and nighttime views of the Alhambra (to which no picture can do justice).

Despite the close proximity to the town center, we found it a quiet and pleasant place to sleep at night, as well as an enjoyable place to have a late night rooftop drink after a full day of walking, sightseeing, or shopping, to unwind while taking in the view.

The interior stairway (which makes it a "carmen") might make this a tough place for those with mobility issues, but for those who are active it posed no problem and contributes to the "wow" factor.

Highly recommended.
