Cottage in Alhama De Granada, Andalucia, Spain - Quiet Street With Parking And Just 5 Mins Walk To Bars Shops, Restaurants And Main Square
- english, spanish
About louise Parr
I live here in Spain and love the area and the fact that it is still traditionally Spanish. What attracted us to this part of Spain was the amazing scenery and of course the tapas!
louise Parr purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why louise Parr chose Alhama de Granada
The house is in really quiet street and so close to the shops and bars. The property was once a small fruit shop many years ago and is full of character and charm. The main reason why we bought this house was because we really loved the fact that it had a garden.
What makes this Cottage unique
Being able to wander into town and sit on the square in the sun in the afternoon for a few drinks and tapas. There are also many fiestas in the town were everyone dresses up and enjoys the festivities.

beautiful and prefect
outstanding house , very nice and helpful owner , would love to stay there again
Lovely ‘cottage’ and very thoughtful - and useful - welcome provisions
Away from it all place - so brush up on your Spanish before you arrive, very little English spoken here. Gorge was beautiful, less impressed with the lake (but would be great in summer) and disappointed with Arab baths. 15 euros for a sauna basically, but a nice building. Lovely drive through mountains to surprisingly swish Malaga - well worth it. Torremolinos another 20 minutes further along - beautiful coast though town still a bit grim. In Alhama itself really liked El Tigre bar - not a word of English, but good tapas and food. Spanish tradition is big lunches and free tapas with each drink at night - variable quality at some on the main square. And it seems you won’t get any tapas with a coffee so encourages boozing.
Louise very helpful and responds quickly to texts. Watch where you park - police are lightening fast to give you a parking ticket - 40 Euro’s! I found driving around Alhama a bit confusing at times - and very narrow lanes, but motorways north and south are excellent.
Lovely place, Great holiday

Gorgeous private house
Very atmospheric, comfortable and roomy house in the Arab quarter of Alhama. Louise very generous in her communications and in the wine and food supplies left for us. A real retreat!
Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for leaving the house so nice.
Just the place for a relaxing stay in Alhama
Charming home in traditional Spanish Village. Louise left the fridge stocked to see us through the first day, which was really appreciated. The cottage is as described and did not disappoint. It is well located close to the town square, where their are restaurants and bars serving good food at reasonable prices.
We loved the fact that there was a guitar available, which our daughter took advantage of. The outside area is very pleasant. The gorge is stunning, and the hot baths is an absolute must. Communication from Louise was excellent. We would definitely return.
