The hosts met us on the property when we arrived. We speak very little Spanish, but we all made our best attempts to communicate. They were very kind and gave us a lot of great advice for our stay. The apartment is spacious with a great view. We would definitely stay here again.
What a charming home with plenty of space for seven people. The bathroom is very large and has a massaging shower. This home is adorably decorated with a very European feel. We spent time just wondering from room to room to look at all the tile, lamps, pictures and little touches that gave it so much personality. There's a wonderful pellet stove in the living area where we sat around in the evening, drank wine and visited. It was also really nice to have parking on the street for our nine (yes, fools that we are) person van. All our other accommodations required parking in a garage then walking 15 minutes with our luggage. We couldn't take advantage of the amazing outdoor spaces because it was rainy and cold but we would have lived in them if we'd come in a different season. The courtyard off the kitchen is charming.
We drove into Granada since we had so many people and parked at the Alhambra then walked around town. We also did a fantastic hike,Los Cohorros, in the National Park. It was a 10 min drive to the start. You wind along a small creek which was overflowing due to all the recent rain. The first part is quite magical as you duck and tuck between tight the trees. Eventually this turns to a small, cement wall that requires some scampering (even on your knees) around the rock walls. FANTASTIC trail for those who love a bit of challenge and varying terrain. This is not a hike for those who like a flat, wide trail. Wear shoes with grip and be prepared to get dirty and do some climbing. This home is great option for those who want to explore the Park.
We had a fantastic dinner at a restaurant that was recommended by the home owner. I can't remember the name but I believe it is one of the nicest in town. It is a bit pricey (by Spanish standards, not American) but the food was worth it. We also took advantage of the grocery only a few blocks away to make breakfast both mornings. Make sure you try the fresh orange juice. We highly recommend this home and area!!!
