Things to do, things to see

Here you will find the Eroski hypermarket, as well as Dunne’s Stores. This is store similar to M&S or BHS in England. Many smaller fashion shops and restaraunts are also here.

The ski resort in the Sierra Nevada is found just outside Granada. This is worth a visit winter or summer just for the spectacular views alone. Speaking of views you can also drive through the Alpujarras and explore the roads and white villages in the hills around Torrox.

A lovely house in a charming village. We received a warm welcome and felt right at home. The location was perfect for day trips to sites in Poland and Czech Republic.

This apartment was exactly as described. It was clean, and well equiped. the complex is still being built and there were building works continuing during the day in the adjacent block. However, this work was not excessively noisy. The builders were friendly and considerate. We definitely needed a car, the beach is a five minute drive. The directions from Granada aiport were a bit sparce, but we managed to find the complex without too much difficulty. i would definitely return. thanks very much.
