Travel and Accommodation
Accommodation will be in our village house, lovingly restored we have maintained and used as many of the original features and fittings as possible giving the house a traditional rustic feel. There are four bedrooms (three twins and one large room which sleeps four), three bathrooms, two terraces, fully-fitted shared kitchen, communal sitting area with wifi throughout the house and bike storage. We have a small bike workshop within 3 minutes walk of the house if repairs are necessary and Granada has several bike shops some of which give us priority service. The under floor heating and hot water is supplied by solar panels (with gas back up) taking advantage of the fantastic local climate. All sheets, duvets, blankets, towels are supplied. The house is within a couple of minute’s walk of the local shop, restaurants, bars, banks and bus stop.

Granada airport (30 minutes drive) is the closest arrival point with connecting flights from Madrid and Barcelona and direct flights from London City airport. Malaga airport (1 hour 30 minutes drive) is the best arrival point for most with many budget airlines offering good deals, sometimes exceptional if booking well in advance.
Transfer from the airport to Monachil is made easy with the Ride Sierra Nevada bus.
