'Owing to a cancellation we found ourselves with a couple of weeks free, one of which was quickly filled with a new client living near Nerja on the Costa deal Sol. After checking out nearby places we were pleased to see that Granada was less than two hours from Nerja by bus and so we searched for decent AirBnB accommodation and started to plan a visit ahead of our house and pet sit in Nerja.
We left from Bristol airport on a breezy and chilly afternoon arriving just over two hours later to a balmy evening in Malaga. We took the train a couple of stops to our overnight hotel in Malaga (www.barcelo.com), and once there relaxed with a few beers and watched the footie!

Next morning and after a decent nights sleep we headed out in search of somewhere for brekkie. We found a great little pavement cafe where we enjoyed some delicious coffee, freshly squeezed juice and toasted cheese sandwiches!
Suitably refreshed and replenished we made our way back to the hotel to collect our bags and headed to the bus station for the non stop service to Granada. It was a very warm morning and whilst waiting for the bus some light refreshments were needed!
The journey from Malaga centre to Granada bus station on the outskirts of town took just under two hours and the bus was very clean and comfy. We had front row seat too which was a bonus!
