This huge studio flat is available to rent in the Albaicín. The studio is really beautifully decorated with exposed brickwork throughout. The living area is slightly separated from the bedroom by a half wall, to give the feeling of separate rooms. Each room is very large, and the bedroom has a big open fireplace to light on the cold winter nights. The bathroom has a sunken bath which has jacuzzi jets, along with a large modern shower. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped and includes an oven and washing machine. Watch the video, the apartment is fantastic!
The apartment is located in a quiet residence but is just a couple of minutes walk from the University of Granada's campus. There are local shops, and it is just a 20-minute walk to Los Doctores, the nightlife spot near the hospital that is popular with students. Granada's train station is a 25-minute walk. The centre of the city, by the cathedral and many of Granada's other stunning architectural attractions is about a 20-30 minute walk.
What We Liked

Your exotic, cultural and ancient home
Twisting, narrow streets.
Spice in the air.
Moroccan shops and restaurants on every corner.
In Albaicín (or Albayzín), Spain's Moorish past remains alive.
It's easy to see why UNESCO declared the district a World Heritage site in 1994.
This is Granada's most breathtaking neighbourhood.
Will you sip sweet tea in a Moroccan tetería? Or go window shopping in ancient, cobblestone streets?
What can I do here?
Check out the incredible view of Alhambra from the Mirador de San Nicolás.
The best time to visit is spring. Warm weather, and views framed by snow-capped mountains.
Get lost in the gorgeous winding streets that the neighbourhood is famous for.
Go to La Porrona in Plaza Larga and try a plato alpujarreño, a hearty dish from the surrounding mountains. The owner, Porri (the bar is named after her), is a former flamenco star!
Fond of your creature comforts?
In Sacromonte, you can still find people living in traditional cave homes. They are popular houses for Roma Gypsies and hippies.
And they lack most modern conveniences – even flushing toilets!
But if you don't mind going au naturel, maybe it's the place for you. Alternative.
