Andalucia Diary – Seasonal Travel Notes

Sun, sea & snow!

Granada is just two hours from us on the coast. The province is experiencing more and more development but has escaped the damage of the late 80s and 90s property boom, so there are lots of sleepy little villages where you can pick up a bargain!  What’s more, the Sierra Nevada offers a serious ski resort, so you can ski in the morning and take an evening beer on the beach.
As part of our new year break, we stayed a night at the Hotel Morisca in the old town. It is magical, and room was in a tower overlooking the Alhambra – it doesn’t get better than that! The world heritage site is a real wonder – you see my photos in the album on the left.
The old town truly is a warren of moorish narrow streets.  Sadly is is quite dirty – in fact the whole city has quite a hippy, "dog-on-a.jpg” width=”660″ece-of-string" feel about it, but is a welcome break from the palm fringed, contrived coast.  There are some wonderful little tapas bars too – just explore.  But if you have a problem with cigarette smoke, then you’ll not like the tapas bars at all!
