About the Property
Amazing National Park location only 20 mins from historic centre of Granada.
Spacious 5 Star Granada apartment with panoramic National Park views, perfect for couples or families. Andalucian Tourist Board Registered.
Begin your holiday with complimentary wine and tapas on arrival (juice and biscuits for smaller visitors) while you take in the glorious sweep of the Sierra Nevada mountains from the comfort of your living room.
The property is equipped to accommodate between 2 and 6 people. We strive to offer attractive rates whatever the size of your group, so couples and smaller groups can enjoy the apartment at an appropriate rate. For larger groups we can also provide a double sofabed, child's cot/Zbed, or even dual rental with a neighbouring apartment - please enquire for details).
The apartment is light, well-furnished and family friendly. Dual aspect windows and French Doors in the living and dining areas give this space literally 'wraparound scenery'. On the practical side, the price includes central heating in winter, air-conditioning in summer, secure parking, free wifi and a large sun terrace for barbecuing, dining or just relaxing outside.
We are located in the pretty village of Guejar Sierra - the heart of Granada's Sierra Nevada National Park – just a hop from the historic centre of Granada and the Alhambra Palace (A UNESCO World Heritage Site), as well as the Sierra Nevada ski resort. The village is a fabulous year round location for both summer and winter holidays. Seasonal activities include walking, horse-riding, mountain-biking, canoeing, climbing, canyoning, skiing and a calendar studded with local fiestas and cultural events.
There is outdoor dining in and around the plaza in summer, views from every corner, quaint shops and great choice of tapas bars and restaurants within strolling distance. An unspoilt location with a great local culinary tradition and a generous tapas culture - you will find prices here much cheaper than in the international ski resort, or the centre of Granada. Ski equipment can also be hired more cheaply in the village.
The apartment offers a relaxed, comfortable home-base from which to enjoy everything that this richly diverse region has to offer.
Our calendar is always up to date with availability and the best rates. To book online, or check the rates for your stay, just click the 'BOOK NOW' button. Alternatively, please enquire direct - we are happy to answer any and all questions about the property or the area.

For even larger groups there is also a quality double sofa-bed in the spacious living room. There is a well equipped kitchen, and two bathrooms (a large, family bathroom in addition to the en-suite).
The private terrace has ample space for dining and lounging amid the lovely mountain views. It is also equipped with a large garden table and chairs, daybed, loungers, and a BBQ. The covered section of the terrace has the games area with pool table.
FAMILY FRIENDLY -
Our twin room has its own TV and DVD player (in addition to the HDTV internet-connected Smart TV in the living room). We also provide an extensive DVD library, books and games, plus a small pool/snooker table for family fun and some equipment for smaller visitors (please tell us at the time of booking if you need our 'toddler pack' with cot, highchair seat adaptor, or an additional Z bed for a child in the master bedroom).

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION -
We are 20 mins from Granada/Alhambra Palace and about 30 mins from the ski resort. The pretty coves of the Costa Tropical can be reached within 45 mins (with some great 'chiringuitas' where you can eat fresh fish right on the beach). The traditional white village of Guejar Sierra itself has great tapas bars, restaurants, local shops, pharmacy, bank and two lovely pools in summer. Our friendly keyholders are happy to give advice and can help organize chef services, tapas tours, hiking, biking, horse-riding, canoeing, treasure hunts for children and babysitting.
Guejar Sierra is also famous for its cherries - so just ask our keyholders if you wish to sample some local, organic, cherry jam!
SKI RESORT -
The apartment is ideally placed for skiing at Pradollano (Sol y Nieve Ski Resort) in the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada boasts the highest downhill runs in Europe as well as being the most southerly - so it often enjoys better snow than the Alps. The resort - with its superb services and installations was built for the Winter Olympics and offers its visitors a wide range of facilities and a ski terrain to suit skiers & boarders of all standards. There are 70km of ski runs, 45 pistes and 300 snow machines guaranteeing snow on the slopes. There is also night skiing by floodlight! As one of Europe's highest resorts it has a surprisingly long season and traditionally opens at the end of November running through to the end of April or even into the first week of May. The resort is so far south that the climate is superb for brushing up on your tan and on clear days there are views of Africa from the top!
Competitive pricing based on number of occupants, NOT size of property (ie: smaller groups mean smaller overheads in terms of laundry/electricity etc - we onpass these savings to you in order to ensure that we always offer the best value for a property of this size and standard - whether for 2, 4, 6 or 8 people). Rates showing are the base rate for 2 people. Additional guests are charged at just 3 euros per night.

Car: Not Necessary
Traditional white mountain village with cobbled streets in a stunning location 20 min. East of historic Granada (Alhambra Palace) and 20 min. from the Sierra Nevada ski resort (Pradollano). Beautiful views abound everywhere & many local restaurants traditionally open up swimming pools in the summer or lakeside/riverside dining terraces overlooking the Rio Genil or the blue waters of the Canales Reservoir. Great family activity location, walks begin from the doorstep and there are also opportunities for mountain-biking, horse-riding, climbing, canoeing, paragliding. This is also a great base from which to explore historic Granada, with its beautiful Moorish buildings, Alhambra Palace & fascinating Moroccan bazaar. Costa Tropical Beaches - 45 min. Guadix caves - 35 min. Water Park - 20 min. Also great romantic getaway for couples with excellent restaurants, or just a place to relax, enjoy the welcoming Spanish atmosphere & while the day away with free tapas.
Other Activities: Sierra Nevada Ski Resort - 20 min., Alhambra Palace - 20 mins, Family Water Park at Cenes - 20 min.
Golf: There are now three golf courses in Granada and more within reasonable driving distance such as the one at Motril on the Costa Tropical 9 holes). The 18 hole Granada Club de Golf is signposted from Armilla. No reservations necessary. Clubs can be hired and if you play in the morning, the cost for 18 holes is approximately 20 Euro (more on Sundays and festivals).
Ski: Skiing is available at the Sierra Nevada ski resort. At over 9000 ft it is one of the highest resorts in Europe and can be reached from Guejar Sierra within 20 min. An international ski school is available on site. There are 70km of ski runs, 45 pistes (with more than enough variety to suit all levels), 300 snow machines and views of Africa from the top.
This is the most southerly ski resort in Europe and, while smaller than some of the other major European resorts, the facilities are considered top rate and it has therefore hosted numerous national and international ski events. With great family facilities on offer as well, Sierra Nevada defies many concepts associated with skiing. Located at barely a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean coast, it has practically guaranteed sunshine, the best spring snow conditions in Europe and is still reasonably priced compared to many of its European counterparts.
About the owner: I know the region intimately - and remain as enthusiastic about it today as the first time I visited. I genuinely enjoy sharing that knowledge and enthusiasm with visitors and am happy to answer questions and offer local tips - so please feel free to ask. It is important to me that visitors enjoy their stay. I believe in listening to what customers want and I always strive to offer the best combination of high standards and good value. No matter whether your tastes run to skiing Spain's most southerly ski resort, hiking or biking in the Sierras, discovering the local culture and cuisine, exploring historic Granada, improving your Spanish, learning a new skill such as flamenco dancing, or simply enjoying lunch by a lovely pool – I am happy to advise and help you to make the most of your stay. Whatever holiday experience you wish to enjoy in Granada – please get in touch.
Why the Owner Chose Güejar Sierra, Granada, Spain:
I chose this apartment because of its glorious views and natural surroundings; its position in the spectacularly situated white village of Guejar Sierra (with some truly great tapas bars and restaurants); and its convenience for the historic city of Granada, the world famous Alhambra Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the Sierra Nevada ski resort. El Ladero Grande is a lovely place to be whatever the season and is the perfect base for those who are seeking to combine a number of different elements into their holiday. Güejar is a great base for a huge variety of activities - mountain biking, walks of all levels, climbing, canoeing, rafting, fishing, paragliding, horse-riding, winter skiing and summer fiestas. And all of this is only 20 mins from Granada - a great place to wander the tree-lined plazas, sample the tapas, listen to real flamenco and simply enjoy the traditional Spanish ambiance of this lovely city.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
In an area of knock-out views - the view from the sun terrace and living room of this property still manage to stand out from the crowd! I bought the property off-plan, but even half-finished and unplastered, I fell in love with it the moment I first stepped into the huge, sunlit space of the living room with the panoramic vista of the mountains sweeping around it. There were initially only the French doors and the windows at the front - but realising that the apartment was situated on the corner of the building, I asked the developer to add the side windows and doors to really bring the mountains into the apartment. We also added central heating and air conditioning to the original plans, to ensure that the apartment is comfortable and a great place to be in any season. Above all, this is a place to relax. It can provide a romantic getaway for couples and has been the venue for more than one honeymoon. But it's great for families too - large enough for teenagers to enjoy their own space, and simple, safe and practical enough for toddlers. Its a fantastic base for going out and exploring Granada or enjoying a day on the mountain - and its also a great place for staying in and topping up your tan on the sunny terrace, or simply watching the sun set behind the mountain while you enjoy a long tall glass of something. The little village of Güejar Sierra, with its cobbled streets and flower draped balconies is something of an undiscovered gem - a well kept Spanish secret. This is where the local Granadinos come to enjoy the best of all that the Sierra Nevada can offer.
