Friendly Rentals apartment of the week: el Jolie
Granada is simply spectacular at this time of year especially for wandering around the Albaicín district whilst contemplating the Alhambra which rises majestically in red in contrast with the white of the Sierra Nevada in the backdrop. It is a stunningly beautiful thing to see in this enchanting city. Similarly, the cold from the Sierra Mountains contrasts with the sun that shines and lights up Granada thus allowing you to look at all the architecture dotted around the city centre, in Realejo, and in Albaicín.
With its multitude of restaurants, profuse night life and impressive culture, in addition to being able to climb the Sierra Nevada and spend a day practising some winter sports on its extensive ski slopes, Granada is your perfect choice for taking a nice break following a hectic Christmas. In addition, to have some perfect holidays in the city of the Alhambra there is nothing better than staying in a well-situated, fully equipped holiday apartment, for a reasonable price of course.
Thus, our apartment of the week is the Jolie apartment in Granada, the reason being that this apartment comprises a new addition to our Friendly Rentals wide range of accommodation available in this beautiful Andalusian city. This acquisition has been the result of considerable effort that is reflected in the quality of the finishing and fittings to guarantee, as always, high quality accommodation. The Jolie apartment is very conveniently situated thanks to being well-located i.e. right in the heart of the Realejo district, a beautiful area, with labyrinth style streets, full of life thanks to its abundance of bars, the locals and shops, and where a quiet atmosphere reigns in spite of it being so busy.
Therefore, if what you want is a fun-packed but quiet break in Granada, then the Jolie apartment in Granada is your ideal choice. However, the location isn’t the only thing that makes this a great apartment but the fact that it has a fully and perfectly equipped kitchen, a well-lit salon with comfortable sofas and a complete sound system, and above all two bedrooms making the Jolie perfect for sleeping up to 6 people, thanks to the sofa bed.
For celebrating Valentine’s Day, Granada is your ideal choice as it is the perfect place for enjoying a romantic walk around its beautiful streets, and even more so with the attractive and modern Jolie apartment that is well-situated in the charming and typical Realejo district.
