Everything that Granada has to offer is on your doorstep – a huge array of shopping options, restaurants and tapas bars, schools and the working district are all within a short stroll. This property also comes with a secure underground garage space which means you do not even have to worry about parking in the heart of the city.

This beautiful property is set within a small block of 7 apartments which enjoy a mature courtyard garden with fruit trees and a central courtyard with swimming pool, very much in the style of the Alhambra Palace itself!
The apartment itself comes with a very large bedroom suite with views up to the Alhambra Palace. The en-suite bathroom is behind a full width carved wooden wall which adds to the charm and character of the room.
The living room is a bright space with two full height sets of French doors opening on to balconies – the views over the courtyard and up to the Alhambra from this room are simply stunning.

Much of this dramatic landscape is a protected biosphere reserve, rich in wildlife and home to many endemic plant species. Here, and in the neighbouring Alpujarra region, we are rewarded with some of the finest walking in Andalucía; from ancient chestnut forests to lavender and broom-clad moorland and white-washed Moorish villages.
