Vacation Apartment Granada
If you are looking to stay in a typical Spanish village and enjoy the skiing during the day, and Spanish entertainment, bars and restaurants in the evening in Granada, this is the place for you.
If you are looking for a summer holiday and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city (5 miles, and like to retire to a typical Spanish village, then Monachil is ideally located.
I think you are unlikely to meet another English family here!
Monachil is made up of lots of little settlements within it. The above picture is the centre of the village, but there seems to be little clusters with a shops, restaurants and supermarkets. There are many restaurants, bars and shops all within 10 minutes walk. It is however very hilly here, so you cannot walk anywhere fast.
There is a bus that goes to Granada city every 1/2 hour during the week, and hourly at weekends. It costs 95 cents each way, and takes about 20 minutes as it goes through all the old villages on route. The bus stop is conveniently located 2 minutes walk from our apartment and takes you right into the centre of Granada.
You can also get a taxi, which costs approx 10 euros and takes around 5 minutes.
There is a new theme park opened with a 26 lane ten pin bowling alley, and games area, as well as American, Mexican, Turkish, Spanish, Pizza and Italian Restaurants. This is just 10 minutes drive from the apartments.
About 2/3 minutes drive from our apartment there is a very large supermarket, it is actually in the next village called Cajar. It has everything from fresh bread, fresh fish and meet, and even baby supplies.
