Large family accommodation in Melegis

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank the owners of the property for their hospitality and attention to detail.

We had one of our best ever family holidays at this property. They didn't charge us for the couple of breakages - kids!!

For anyone who can't afford a hotel holiday for a large family (like us), this is the ideal place. The pool is great and its not too far to the sea if that's what you like. We prefer the walking and swimming in the lake, which is only a short walk through the village.

Thanks again and maybe we will visit in the winter as well so that we can try the skiing.

Melegis is a beautiful small village in the Lecrin Valley(translated 'the valley of happiness') situated close to lake Beznar, the area is surrounded by Orange and Lemon groves as far as the eye can see, excellent for walking, fishing, cycling and the Ski slopes of the Sierra Navada are just 45 minutes by car, the beaches of the Costa Tropical are only 25 minutes by car and these are some of Spain's most popular resorts, Granada city centre can be reached within 25 minutes with the wonderful Alhambra palace and loads of other interesting buildings.

The village can be reached within 1 hour 20 minutes from Malaga airport, 1 hour 50 minutes from Almeria Airport , 2 hours 15 minutes from Murcia airport and just 25 minutes from Granada airport.

The village has two small grocery shops, two bars/restaurants, a bakery, a tobacconist and a very beautiful old church.

If you are after a peaceful relaxing, bit of real Spain then this is the area to visit, you will not be disappointed.

Golf: There are three golf courses within 25 minutes drive, Santa Clara being the closest, just 15 minutes drive. Los Moriscos is located on the coast approx 25 minutes away. Granada golf club is located south of Granada approx 25 minutes away.

These 3 coursesrepresent and offer very good value for money, all the usual hire facilities are available at reasonable rates.

Ski: The ski resort of the Sierra Navada can be reached by car within 50 minutes from Melegis village, parking is very easy and costs around 8 euro per day, all ski equipment can be rented from a selection of shops, the ski season normally runs from last week in November to mid April.

We ski here every year, it is much cheaper than other European resorts and the sun nearly always shines, it is also nice to get back down into the village after a long days skiing.
