About the property

'El Artista' is beautiful apartment situated above the Neilson Art Gallery in the picturesque village of Grazalema in the Sierra de Grazalema, this 3 bedroom apartment sleeps up to 4 people. The apartment has its own independent entrance from the quiet rear street.

On the first floor there are two single bedrooms, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge with wood burning stove, and gas heater, television with DVD player, and a bathroom. The top floor is accessed by an open plan staircase,( not suitable for young children) and here you will find the third bedroom with a double bed and second bathroom, which also leads onto the roof terrace with magnificent views over the roof tops to the mountains beyond.

It is also a great base to visit most of the main tourist sites in Andalucia, e.g. Cadiz, Seville Malaga, Algecira, the Costa del Sol and the Atlantic coast all of which are within a 2 hours drive away, and Granada and Cordoba which are within a 3 hour drive.

Amazing and airy accommodation in a serene spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful week at "El Artista" this summer and can confidently say that it's one of the best apartments I've ever (a) had the fortune to discover and successfully book and (b) had the absolute pleasure of staying in. Perfect in every way!

A beautifully bright and spacious apartment with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. Plenty of information, local guides, maps of the area available and speedy internet access through the apartment.

Towels and bedding in abundance and of excellent quality,

Some very lovely touches e.g.. when we opened the fridge there was a small tray with a bottle of fizz and 2 chilling glasses plus chocolate, which was very welcome!

Fabulous roof terrace with great views of the mountains and the rooftops of Grazalema. A very tranquil place yet only a few minutes walk from the bustling square, which is the best place to stop for a drink and people watching.

Another highlight of our stay was the magnificent municipal pool nestling in the mountains at Gastrobar "La Maroma" further up the hill from the main square in Grazalema. 2 euros entry fee to swim and lounge around for as long as you wish!

We were fortunate to bump into Jack, the owner, during our stay - a very friendly, helpful host indeed.

I would highly recommend this amazing apartment to anyone wanting to experience and explore Andalusia - and i hope to return some time in the not too distant future!

Absolutely fabulous!

Erholsamer Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Schönes, sauberes Ferienhaus mit traumhafter Aussicht über Dorf und Landschaft von der Dachterrasse. Komplett und geschamckvoll eingerichtet. Liegt sehr zentral, aber dennoch sehr ruhig. Super Ausgangspunkt zu vielfältigen Wanderungen. Gastgeber sehr hilfreich, da wir später ankamen, als geplant.
