Traditional Andalucian
Meets Modern Comfort

Situated just outside Granada in southern Spain, El Amparo is a beautiful Spanish farmhouse B&B, in the style of a traditional rural hotel of Andalucia surrounded by olive groves, wheat fields and mountains.  Nick and Jody’s personal and friendly approach has seen El Amparo become a favourite with groups and families travelling to this area, which is reflected in their very positive TripAdvisor ranking.

Extensively remodeled recently to provide an additional 5 suites and a Massage Therapy room we are now able to cater for large groups for exclusive bookings and welcome enquiries from retreat organisers looking for luxury accommodation.

Ideally located for visiting the cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville, it is a place of calm and tranquillity, offering guests a romantic getaway, and an escape from the pressures of life, whilst still ensuring those creature comforts.

“A marvellous biking weekend”

The quality of a trip is determined by the companions first and second by the weather. Yes the companions were good friends. But the weather was really bad. First rain seen in months and snow at the top of the Pico Veleta, the goal of our trip and climb. Luckily, Nick and Jody know how what hospitality is. A muddy trip becomes a party with the help of Nick and his pressure washer.We finally succeeded in our climb, the sun came out and we enjoyed one of the best B&B’s I’ve ever been in. BTW we intended to go to restaurants in the evenings for dining. After trying the cooking of Nick & Jody, we had all our meals in house accompanied by the best wine in the B&B!

“Amazing Retreat, Amazing Food, Marvellous hosts”

My wife and i stopped here for 2 days. What a wonderful place and lovely hosts. Secluded in the hills and surrounded by olive groves, this is the perfect place to spend a few peaceful nights. The marvelous and friendly hosts, Nick & Jody, are wonderful company and do everything to make you comfortable and welcome. The food and wine is excellent. Nick & Jody have amazing plans to continue developing this perfect rural retreat. I couldn’t recommend El Amparo more

“A wonderful place to stay - we've been three times!”

The surrounding countryside is spectacular, the local villages are
charming and El Amparo is a great base for exploring Granada and surrounds.

“Perfect Holiday”

My boyfriend and I stayed at El Amparo for a week at the end of August / beginning of September, and it was just a perfect week.

The villa itself is beautiful, super clean and nicely decorated, and our room (azul) was large, comfortable and cool. The pool area is well appointed with comfortable sun loungers and day beds with a backdrop of picture perfect views over the countryside. The blazing sunshine every single day helped as well!

The food on offer was delicious and ample (muesli, fresh orange juice, fruits, meats and cheeses for breakfast, homemade pizzas, mini burgers and baguettes for lunch and fresh fish, spit roast chicken and pastas for dinner). There is also a full bar available (with a fully stocked honesty bar at the pool for the daytime) with very reasonably priced spirits and wines available at dinner time.

The villa itself is around a 10 minute drive from Alhama De Granada, a lovely little town with a handful of tapas bars and restaurants (try La Placeta or El Tigre – which get going about 8.30/9pm but will be packed with locals by 10pm) which offers a nice alternative for popping out for lunch or dinner from the villa.

During our stay we also took a day trip to the Alhambra, which is a pretty easy 1ish hour drive from the villa. From the Alhambra you can get to the centre of Granada very easily (a 5 minute, 4 euro taxi ride), which is a beautiful city full of great bars and restaurants.

The crowning jewels of El Amparo are however the owners and hosts, Nick and Jody. Nick and Jody made us feel so welcome from the outset and were great company throughout the days and evenings. Nothing was too much trouble for them (giving us the option of choosing the fish for our dinner on quieter evenings for example, and even being so thoughtful as to buy my boyfriend a box of the local biscuits from Alhama De Granada which he fell in love with from the breakfasts) and they made our stay that little bit more special.

El Amparo is the perfect place for relaxation (and a little indulgence), offering you the opportunity to do as much or as little as you fancy. We can’t recommend it highly enough!

“The Best Bed & Breakfast !”

We stayed 3 nights at El Amparo and were blown away by the beauty of the property and more importantly by Jody and Nick as hosts. The property is beautiful, quiet, and peaceful. If your looking for a relaxing vacation in Spain, this is it! The location is in the remote foothills of Granada and is the perfect jumping off point to enjoy the surrounding areas or just relax by the pool. The views of the olive tree orchards will make it hard to leave :)Jody and Nick were thoughtful, kind, and generous. They have a fun unique style of hosting and are truly genuine down to earth amazing people. We loved chatting and sharing stories over a glass of wine. Multiple times we felt that Jody and Nick went above and beyond for us during our stay.

Overall our stay was wonderful and we highly recommend staying at El Amparo. It’s awesome to meet people like Jody and Nick, you don’t come across people like this often… So if your lucky enough to get a reservation book it!

P.S. make sure to try there home cooked lunch and dinner at least once during your stay! Both are phenomenal 🙂
