About our home

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: Our flat is in the Realejo neighbourhood, part of the old historic quarter of the city. It is situated at the foot of the Alhambra Palace hills. Its narrow cobbled streets are full of charm, places of cultural interest, bars, cafes and restaurants. It is a very safe place.
We live in the ground floor, overlooking the front patio with its beautiful plants, fountain and palm tree. It makes for a lovely place to spend time in, very quiet and luminous flat.

ABOUT GRANADA: Granada has a population of 300,000 inhabitants and its main source of commerce is its University and tourism. It is one of the capital cities in Andalucía, the southern part of Spain. Its great history and a wide multi-cultural heritage are evident throughout the many monuments in the city such as the Arabic palace of the Alhambra, the Cathedral, etc.

It is situated in a mountainous area with Sierra Nevada, Europe’s southernmost ski resort only a 30 minute drive. From its highest peak, Mulhacen at 3481m, you can see Morocco on a clear day. Interestingly Granada is also really close to the coast, both the Granada coast (45 minute drive from the city) and the Costa del Sol (around an hour drive).

We also have a small one bedroom country house in the rural area of Lecrin Valley, 20 mins drive from town on the way to the Granada coast. With 7,500m2 of orange, lemon and avocado trees and a spring water plunge pool which is also used for watering the trees. The views are absolutely incredible! We will be more than happy to swap this house too if that was of Interest.

----------------------------------------------

EL BARRIO: Nuestro piso esta en el Realejo, en el centro histórico de la ciudad, al pie de la Alhambra. Sus calles estrechas y de empedrado, sus monumentos y lugares de ocio le dan al barrio mucho encanto. Y es un barrio muy seguro.

EL EDIFICIO: de tres plantas y 12 años de antigüedad, construido en una zona ajardinada. Vivimos en la planta baja, dando al patio ajardinado, lo que hace la estancia muy agradable, silenciosa, luminosa, etc.

ACERCA DE GRANADA: Es una ciudad de 300000 habitantes donde el comercio, su Universidad y el turismo son sus principales actividades.
Es una de las ocho capitales de Andalucía, región situada al sur de España. Granada cuenta con una gran historia y una amplia herencia multi-cultural como evidencian sus numerosos monumentos (el palacio árabe de La Alhambra, la Catedral, etc.)

Esta situada en una zona montañosa, contamos con la estación de esquí de Sierra Nevada que alcanza los 3481 m de altitud en el pico Mulhacen, a tan solo 30 minutos de la ciudad. Desde allí se puede divisar Marruecos en días despejados. Curiosamente Granada también esta muy cerca de la costa, a 45 minutos en coche de la costa granadina y una hora a la Costa del Sol.

Tambien tenemos una casita de un dormitorio en la zona rural del Valle de Lecrin a medio camino entre Granada y la costa Tropical de Motril, de 7500 m2 de naranjas, limones y aguacates con un estanque para regar y bañarse con agua de nacimiento. Las vistas son impresionantes! Estariamos encantados de intercambiar esta casa si es de interes.
