An Introduction To Our Facilities

Situated just outside Granada in southern Spain, El Amparo is a beautiful Spanish farmhouse B&B, in the style of a traditional Andalucian rural hotel surrounded by olive groves, wheat fields and mountains.

Ideally located for visiting the cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville, it is a place of calm and tranquility, whilst still ensuring those creature comforts.

The Salon

The Salon is a cosy area for reading, relaxing or choosing a movie. As well as having a large library of both fictional and informative books, we have a huge collection of DVD’s, for all ages.

There are details of carefully researched walking and cycling routes for guests and also a computer with free Internet access. Free WiFi is available on request in the rooms and most common areas.

A continental plus breakfast of fresh fruits, hams and cheeses as well as muesli and yoghurts are served in the salon in the morning, and for guests dining in, the bar is open until 11.30pm.

Please note Sunday is our day off, please ask Nick or Jody for recommendations for evening dining.

Food & Drink


Breakfast is served from 8.30am in the guests lounge and during the warmer months in the courtyard or on the terrace.

A spread of fruits, meats and cheeses and other fresh local produce satisfy the heartiest of appetites, as well as freshly squeezed orange juice – hand-picked from our trees during March and April!


If you would like to take a picnic on your days out, just tell us in the morning what you would like and it will be freshly prepared for you, whilst you are enjoying breakfast.

A menu is available on request and there is an honesty fridge conveniently located poolside.


For those requiring further sustenance in the evening, we are happy to recommend several local restaurants and tapas bars. But if you would prefer to chill out, watch the sunset with a glass of wine, and just “stay in”, let us know after breakfast for details of the evening’s fayre.

One of the benefits living in this region of Granada is the abundance of fresh local produce, much of it harvested in the adjacent groves and farmland. When in season, this is used daily in the preparation of our food.

We offer optional home cooked three course dinners 5 nights per week, Sunday’s the kitchen is always closed, but Nick or Jody can provide local dining recommendations on request.

The Pool

The pool area is open from 7.30am – 10.00pm, April until October-perfect for an early morning swim or a soak in the hot tub!

Pool towels are provided. If you get thirsty there’s even a fridge by the pool with cold drinks – just help yourself.

Happy To Help

We’ll help you organise your outings to explore the cultural delights of the area and if you want to just relax by the pool, we’ll be on hand with a cooling drink!
