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.

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

Beautiful home with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

To experience living in a Grenadian residents home was a wonderful experience. The home itself is very old and has several layers to it culminating in the rooftop deck which has magnificent views of the Alhambra and surrounds. We felt like locals .....particularly when we needed to get the neighbour to help us with a lock issue! The house is very very comfortable. Very hard to fault as a place to stay. We were close to restaurants, small grocers and the city centre for shopping. We visited the Alhambra on a private tour ( highly recommend) one day and the next day we took a bus to the beach. Each day it was lovely to come home, grab a drink and head to somewhere comfy to relax. The kitchen was complete and had many of the essentials for a short visit. Thanks Victoria......we had a fabulous time and really enjoyed your home! 😊

A wonderful place to stay in Granada

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly great place to stay in Granada. The house is full of character, comfortable and equipped with everything you could possible want. The location is perfect to experience the heart of the old city and the view of Al Hambra from the terrace is stunning. There are many bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance or the C1 bus is very convenient to take you further afield. I would highly recommend this property.

Thank you Victoria

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
