                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: My partner and I took a three month Andalusian break from our busy city lives in Paris and London... we fell in love with this region, a perfect cross-roads for travelers: Andalusia with its strong culture, breathtaking and ever changing landscapes ... but also on the doorstep to Africa ! We extended our stay … sixteen beautiful years have passed ! We are now living in the Albayzin quarter of Granada always searching more special places to share with our visitors !

                  Why the Owner Chose Costa Tropical and Granada Province:
                  We love variety and contrasts and Granada is the land of just that, full of history and stories, absolutely fascinating for any art, culture and history lover! The house is located in the Albayzin (the ancient Moorish quarter) and we've always enjoyed its labyrinth of narrow, cobbled alleyways, offering unique glimpses of the Alhambra Palace between jasmin and bouganvillier bushes. In the Albayzin you feel like you're in an old andalusian village, a short walk and you are in the countryside with the mountains of the Sierra Nevada (very often snow-capped) looming above - however, at the same time, in 5 mins you can be in the centre of a large city!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  Sitting on the balcony watching the Alhambra again and again... for sunrise, afternoon, sunset and night views of one of the most amazing palaces in the world! Then walking 2 min to the most interesting and lively tapas bars in Spain (Welcome to the world of free tapas !... each drink ordered is accompanied by a free tapa!). The last stand of the Moorish kingdom, Granada is steeped in exotic some of its many hidden secrets on your doorstep. From Granada, in the same day it would be possible to go skiing in the morning and lie on the beach in the afternoon!
