A beautifully discreet Granada lodging, where even the aromas of flowers will linger in the memory .
This 16th century renaissance style mansion was built on the ruins of 12th century Arab House and the discreetness is such that hidden amongst the side streets of the Albayzín, you may just miss it. That would be a real shame, for here is a place that offers a surprising amount of luxury and true Andalusian hospitality in equal measure.
The Carmen del Cobertizo is a place to enjoy time, just chatting away and enjoying a good drink by the lovely courtyard or large garden, with its excellent view of the Alhambra or the small pool, made from a former fountain. Lovely as both the rooms, which are built around the patio, and general décor are, the hospitality of the place remains one of the key elements of a stay here and guests generally leave enchanted both by the place and owners.
The other powerful sense to be awoken here is the sense of smell. The aromas of the plotted plants, flowers and even orchards emanating from the garden are delightful. A final word of caution. The narrow, winding roads around the Albaycin may make for picture postcard beauty, but getting there by car is near impossible.
In our opinion, it is best to park in a public car park nearby Plaza Nueva and take a taxi in. Other than that, enjoy this lovely Lodging.

Wonderful Experience
Date of stay 14/11/2014
Carmen del Cobertizo is a hidden gem, and a beautiful and welcome surprise amid the bustling streets it stands on, in the historic quarter of the city. Upon entering this wonderful place, after a long day's travel, we felt an immediate peaceful embrace. The main reception room is decorated with tasteful but casual flair, and thankfully, it is not a scene of contrived interior design, but of homeliness and practicality. The bedrooms are situated on the first floor around an open landing, are well furnished, clean and comfortable. It is one of those super places that just works, and the staff could not be faulted for their friendly and helpful manner. Our stay was at the end of the season and the rooms were mainly unoccupied, which meant is was probably quieter than usual. For us it also meant that we were very spoilt, with breakfasts that could only be described as little banquets...fresh eggs, home made preserves, home made cakes, Iberico ham, fresh breads and croissants.....plenty of excellent fuel for a hard days hill climbing to the higher spots of the Grenada. All in all, a wonderful and memorable holiday and the residence has my absolute recommendation.
