Our group of 4 older adults were lucky enough to stay at Carmen de la Luna for eight nights.
We would agree with all those positive comments made by others. It's hard to add something new. The location is brilliant- everything you would want to visit is within walking distance.
The house is very clean, tidy and spacious. The outside terrace area is fabulous - particularly when you have been staying in small apartments in other European cities . We loved that we could sit outside for breakfast, a bbq, or pre dinner drinks, looking across to the Sierra Nevadas and breathing in the fresh air. It was a bonus to have an outside toilet.
Jorge of course is the perfect host as many have said. When we arrived Jorge took us for a walk to orient us to the area and so we knew where to find the baker, supermarket, tapas bars, restaurants and memorials that were close by. We had welcome beers and jamon with Jorge on our first evening. Jorge was always available for restaurant bookings and other Granada advice.
We all agreed we would stay in the same place if we came back to Granada.
There are many great rentals for holiday makers in Europe, but it would be hard to surpass Carmen de la Lana in Granada for location, quality of accommodation, amenities and Jorge, the best host ever.
Touring with a car and want to visit Granada? Then stay here; Ground floor of a large townhouse that is well equipped and air-conditioned. Jorge is an excellent communicator, showing how good Google Translate can be. Jorge is really helpful and willing to ensure you have everything to enjoy your stay and all you need to enjoy Granada.
For anyone wanting to visit Granada and all that it has to offer, I strongly recommend that you stay at Carmen de la Lana. Not only is the location perfect to visit the Alhambra (must see!!!) but also in great part due to the very warm Spanish hospitality thatJorge so graciously offered us..Although we were only in Granada for two full days, Jorge insured that we made the most of our short stay by personally taking us on a tour of the old town and finished off his tour a few of his favourite tapas bars which wevthourughly enjoyed. Jorge is very proud of his City and as a host, has exceeded by far our expectations in terms of helping us to make the most of our time in Granada. The house was very clean, well equipped with all that we needed along with a splendid view of the Sierra Nevada from the terrace while having breakfast.
If ever we return to Granada, there is no doubt that we would try to stay at Carmen be la Lana.
Our stay at this house was a wonderful experience. The area was covered with trees, giving you fresh air whenever you venture outside. The garage gives you a variety of things to do. It has a punching air bag, a ping-pong table, and some bikes to keep the whole family having fun. The owner was very nice despite the fact he could not speak english. He happily toured us around the house with the help of google translate. He even took the time to take us around town and suggested dinner at a friendly bar. Our only suggestion is that the half-bathroom be located inside the residence to be more convenient. But other than that we had a most enjoyable stay, and we disappointed to leave this great place we learned to call home.
We stayed at the Carmen de la Lana in August of 2016. Jorge, the landlord, made our stay one of the most memorable vacation experiences we have ever had anywhere. By way of history I was born and raised in Granada but left for North America in my late teens, so I have a connection with the city. I wanted to stay in a Carmen within walking distance to any and all amenities that the city of Granada has to offer. The place is very well kept and Jorge will go out of his way to please. Upon arrival we came to a kitchen stocked with fresh fruit, cheese, cold cuts, milk, wine, everything you need to get settled after a long day of travel. I asked him where to find the typical tapas I remember from growing up and not only did he sow us, he actually came out with us. It was terrific. To top things one of the evenings he cooked a very special dinner for us and shared the extraordinary history of he Carmen which has been in his family's possession for hundreds of years. We can't wait to plan another trip to Granada and visit with Jorge!
This home is amazing and the host, Jorge was helpful and kind, making our stay in Granada perfect! This home and Jorge made our visit to Granada the highlight of our tour of Spain. Jorge was waiting for us when we arrived. He helped us get our car parked and then helped us get acquainted with Granada.The view from the patio is fantastic and made us feel like the rich and famous as we had our morning coffee. The home has everything you could need and Jorge is an excellent host. I have stayed in quite a few apartment rentals but none as special as this. The air conditioning works well and we were very comfortable. Thank you Jorge for making our visit to your home so special.
We were absolutely delighted with this holiday home. The courtyard is large, with beautiful views and lovely lemon and orange trees providing shade. It was perfect for our 4 year old and our friend's 2 1/2 year old to run around in, while also being ideal for grown ups to sit out and sip wine in after the kid's bedtime. Inside, the rooms are generously proportioned and very comfortable.
Location-wise, we found it was a short and pleasant walk to most of Granada's main attractions, and there are shops, restaurants and many other facilities a short walk away.
Jorge was exceptionally helpful and accommodating, going out of his way to make us comfortable - he even volunteered to go and collect our friend's lost phone for them.
I highly recommend this place, especially for family groups. If we are ever lucky enough to be visiting Granada again, we would definitely stay here again.
