Newcastle to Granada with apartment near the Alhambra
« on: June 13, 2010, 06:44:49 AM »
Hello, I am planning a birthday surprise for my partner who will be 60 years old next year. He absolutely adores Granada inparticular the  Alhambra Palace. I would love to try and book an apartment as close to this as possible.

We want 11th September 2015 for seven nights.

We want an apartment for two people.

We are physically fit.
We are looking to pay upto £800 for bed and breakfast for the flight and hotel or up to £500 for just accommodation.

There used to be a lot of very cheap flights to Malaga from Newcastle but now there are less.

Just do a google.

Then you need to get a bus from Malaga.
Malaga airport has a special bus stop with buses to the Malaga bus station.
Get off the plane, go to the bus station and get on the bus to Granada. 

Once you are in Granada bus station get a taxi from Granada bus station to
the accom or get on a bus into the centre.
Info about bus tickets here

The closest places to the Alhambra are these.
They are just on the doorstep.

They are all about 100 metres from the grounds of the Alhambra  just off the Cuesta Gomerez
which goes up from Plaza Nueva to the Alhambra.
It's up a hill so not OK if you have health problems. 

The people who run the Alcoba speak English are a good source of local info.

Alcoba A - 800 metres
Apartment in a beautiful house in the centre of Granada, near Plaza
Nueva just below the Alhambra. Excellent location. The apartment has 1
