Almunia del Valle
Camino de la Umbría s/n
Andalusia Granada, Spain
Number of Rooms: 11
Hotel Type: Boutique Hotel
Prices: from 110.00 EUR to 145.00 EUR
A truly charming Granada accommodation and a privileged place to relax under the striking backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park.
The position of this stunning little rural is stunning and unique in itself, with the main house standing atop of the typical village of Monachil. It fits in perfectly within the beautiful natural surroundings incorporating, as it does, the regional elements of stone, ceramics and tapestries with bright modern colours and facilities.
Anyone looking to travel in Granada will also find the Almunia del Valle an excellent and conveniently based option, being only 10 minutes from the centre of the city of Granada itself and some 20 minutes skiing in the Sierra Nevada.
Yet it affords all the advantages of a small country retreat – simple pleasures, congenial hosts in Patricia and Jose Manuel, beautiful countryside and an excellent swimming pool and ample terraces from which to take it all in.
Almunia del Valle Reviews
Would go back in an instance
We spent a week in Monachil in the "Almunia del Valle”. The warmth of the hosts, the beautiful nature, solitude and tranquillity was wonderful. This hotel - with the very friendly atmosphere, excellent cuisine and hospitality - deserves more than three stars. We would go back in an instance!”. DB GermanyDate of stay at the Almunia del Valle
Chic, luxurious and stylish
We stayed 3 wonderful nights at La Almunia whilst on our honeymoon and stayed in room 7 (superior double). From the moment we arrived, our lovely hosts made us feel very welcome - nothing would appear to be too much trouble.
The views from every part of this small hotel are quite simply stunning and it would have been very easy not to have ventured far. However, with Granada an easy 15 minute drive away La Alhambra is a must, and truly worthy of a whole days visit. The drive from the village of Monachil to the hotel is not for the faint hearted but well worth the effort - be sure to follow the hotel's directions as we did and you won't go wrong.
Our room had every home comfort from forgotten toothbrushes to cosy bathrobes and slippers. As someone who is very fussy about bed comfort; I slept blissfully and without complaint; which is rare. We dined here 2 evenings and thoroughly enjoyed every course of each 4 course set menu especially the Iberian pork fillet, in addition the little bar was able to provide us with any beverage that we cared to ask for.
This is a chic, luxurious and stylish hotel set in the most idyllic setting, owned and run by Manuel and Patricia the nicest kindest and most attentive hosts you could ask for. We look forward to our return and will rely on our very happy memories to sustain us till then. Furthermore; we were very impressed with the service received from your company and will look to use you again - thank you. Kind regards, MK
