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.
Beautifully located hotel in the Sierra Nevada mountains near Monachil.
Very warm, welcoming and friendly hosts make you feel very much at home.
The rooms are very tastefully decorated and we had a sensational view of the mountains opposite.
The breakfast is very varied and delicious!

Nestled high up in a valley above Granada, with views towards the mountains, this tiny hotel has exquisite food and service and at the same time a super relaxed style. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Ein wundervoll kleines Hotel in herrlicher Hanglage, schöner Garten-/Poolbereich, alles sehr gepflegt, tolles Ambiente der Zimmer und im kl. Haupthaus. Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Mitarbeiter und umsorgende Besitzer. Alles ist irgendwie verwinkelt und man hat ständig einen neuen Ein-und Ausblick. Ganz ruhig, am Ende eines Ausläufers von Ortschaften rund um Granada und mit aufregender letzter Zufahrt, den aber alle bisher gemeistert haben und der einfach auch irgendwie dazu passt. Abends sehr gelungenes Menüangebot, morgens originelles Frühstücksbuffet mit viel Auswahl, beides auf der schönen Terrasse, mit Blick nur auf die Berge. Für Erkundungen in Granada können wir anderen Ortsfremden ein Taxi empfehlen. Man wird abgeholt und für etwa 15 Euro in Granada abgesetzt, kann dort gleich loslegen, auch mal etwas trinken und lässt sich abends wieder dort absetzen. Unbedingt empfehlenswert für einen Urlaub abseits der Bettenburgen, aber nahe genug um das wundervolle Granada zu entdecken.

Una estancia maravillosa aunque un poco corta. Enhorabuena por el hotel. Lo pasamos muy bien.
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
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 Germany
