El Ladero Grande offers a relaxed, comfortable home-base from which to enjoy historic Granada, as well as the outdoor activities and great little tapas bars on hand in the mountain village of Guejar Sierra and the surrounding Sierra Nevada National Park. The village is a fabulous year round location for both summer holidays and winter skiing.
The apartment itself offers beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada mountains (dual aspect windows and French doors in the light and spacious living and dining areas give this space literally 'wraparound scenery'). And, on the practical side, the price includes central heating in winter, air-conditioning in summer, Satellite TV (UK & European Channels), community wifi (with additional back-up mifi), secure parking, high standard of furnishings & equipment & complimentary local wine to welcome you on arrival.
We also provide a selection of DVDS and books, plus some games and equipment for smaller visitors (please tell us at the time of booking if you need our 'toddler pack' with cot, highchair seat adaptor etc). The village itself is very child friendly - all of the restaurants welcome children and there is also a lovely new play park.
The apartment has a large master suite (with double bed), which opens onto the lovely terrace. The second bedroom also has a double bed and the third is equipped with twin beds. There is also a well equipped kitchen, and two bathrooms (an en-suite to the Master bedroom and a larger, family bathroom).
The private terrace has ample space for airy dining and lounging amid the lovely mountain views (guests particularly like our fabulously comfortable 'daybed'). It is also equipped with a large garden table and chairs, loungers, and a BBQ.
The location is only 20 mins from Granada/Alhambra Palace and about 25 mins from the ski resort. The pretty village has great tapas bars, restaurants, local shops, pharmacy, bank and two lovely pools in summer. Our friendly keyholders are happy to give advice and can help organize chef services, tapas tours, hiking, biking, horse-riding, canoeing, treasure hunts for children and babysitting.
Sierra Nevada ski resort:
The apartment is ideally placed for skiing at Pradollano (Sol y Nieve Ski Resort) in the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada boasts the highest downhill runs in Europe as well as being the most southerly - so it often enjoys better snow than the Alps. The resort - with its superb services and installations was built for the Winter Olympics and offers its visitors a wide range of facilities and a ski terrain to suit skiers & boarders of all standards. There are 70km of ski runs, 45 pistes and 300 snow machines guaranteeing snow on the slopes. There is also night skiing by floodlight! As one of Europe's highest resorts it has a surprisingly long season and traditionally opens at the end of November running through to the end of April or even into the first week of May. The resort is so far south that the climate is superb for brushing up on your tan and on clear days there are views of Africa from the top!
Competitive pricing based on number of occupants not size of property (ie: smaller groups mean smaller overheads in terms of laundry/electricity etc - we onpass these savings to the customer in order to offer the best value for a property of this size and standard).

GETTING TO US & GETTING AROUND
We are happy to share advice on flights/routes/timings/car hire etc which we have found to be cheapest.
