Spent a lovely relaxing week at this apartment in Granja. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and well equipped. It is located just a short walk from the beach and the train station and directly opposite an excellent cafe and bakery where we could get breakfast for four of us for 6 euros. We made use of the beach equipment...

About the neighbourhood
Granja has its own beach, sea front and promenade, less than a five minute walk from the apartment. On the sea front, there is an immaculate municipal swimming pool which overlooks the sea. Prices are for the whole day and there is a snack bar/bar inside at the poolside.

Directly opposite the apartment is a fantastic patisserie called 'Snopao' selling cheap meals, snacks, alcohol, cigarettes, coffees, cakes etc. from 06:00 until after midnight - they have a baker's at the back so you can buy your bread, warm and fresh, directly from the oven. A few doors away is a grocer's that sells almost everything you will need for your holiday i.e shampoo, sun cream, toothpaste, along with fresh food and locally grown vegetables at very reasonable prices
