PUEBLO VILLA WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS AND UNLIMITED WIRELESS BROADBAND

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in San Juan de Capistrano - 28 San Francisco

2 Bedroom (one double, one twin), 1 bathroom. Sleeps 4

Our spacious and well equipped apartment is approached via a series of about 15 gently rising steps spread over 50 metres through well maintained gardens. A private gate leads into our tiled patio garden and up to the very large south facing terrace with patio furniture and spectacular views across the town to the Mediterranean beyond. Newly fitted white aluminium French doors open onto the terrace from both bedrooms and the lounge/dining room. Our kitchen and bathroom have been modernised and the kitchen boasts a full size oven and ceramic hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave oven. Both bedrooms were refurbished in 2011 and new internal doors were fitted throughout. The floors were also retiled in 2011. Unlimited wireless broadband is available at no extra cost. A 200 yard walk away is the very large communal pool (open Easter to October) with separate children’s' pool and play area,. There are poolside bars and restaurants, a very useful Supermarket and a regular and very reliable bus service into town.

Local information: Tourism has not spoiled the charm of Nerja - local restrictions prohibiting many of the excesses found elsewhere. The pedestrianized town centre has numerous restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. The 'Balcon de Europa' provides a palm fringed focus to the town, jutting out into the sea and providing an ideal stage for the excellent street entertainers that are licensed to perform there: an ideal place to join the locals on their evening stroll! Explore this pleasant town by horse drawn carriage, or walk the narrow streets of white washed houses and shop in a wide variety of good quality shops.

Local Attractions: Two miles away, the famous Nerja caves are situated close to a magnificent working aqueduct just outside the tiny seaside village of Maro. Amongst the caves' attractions is the world's largest stalactite. In addition to Nerja's beaches, there are numerous secluded beaches stretching eastwards along the coast past the tranquil Marina del Este towards Almunecar - an historic town 15 minutes away by car, with castle, Roman ruins - and a water park. There is another water park in Velez-Malaga - also about 15 minutes by car (westwards) from Nerja and adjacent to the nearest golf course (Baviera) and directly opposite a new, air conditioned, 125 shop mall, and multi-screen cinema (English language films shown).

Attractions further afield: Nearby are the Moorish hillside villages of Competa and Frigliana (the latter, only 4 miles away, was recently voted the most beautiful mountain village in Spain). Further afield are the lakes and countryside around Vinuela (35 mins), the amazing Alhambra Palace at Granada (90 mins), the ski resort at Sierra Navada (under two hours away via the same excellent Granada road), the uniquely British duty free port of Gibraltar (two hours), and even Seville and Cordoba (about 3 hours). For those who wish to sample the delights of Torremolinos and Benelmadena (but then return to sanity!), these resorts are less than an hour away.

Ted or Anne Thibaut purchased this villa in 2000

Having holidayed in Nerja in the mid 1990s we fell in love with the town as an attractive family holiday centre. Once we had decided to buy a second home Nerja seemed the obvious place to come. We viewed a number of properties in and around Nerja and on San Juan - but what made this one stand out were the stunning views from the terrace and the fact that we overlooked a large open garden space! When we saw the views it hardly mattered what the inside was like!

Apart from the wonderful views we fell in love with the extensive terracing and the fact - possibly unique on San Juan - that both bedrooms and the lounge had French windows that opened directly onto the terrace.

The sun trap of a garden was just an added bonus!

Built in the style of a Moorish mountain village San Juan de Capistrano is a quiet urbanisation nestling serenely above the town of Nerja, in the foothills of the Almijara mountains - yet less than a mile away from the town centre and main beaches. An easy 45 minute drive eastwards from Malage airport via a lightly used motorway, Nerja retains its essentially Spanish identity whilst boasting the best climate in Europe.

THE MOTORWAY SHOWN BEHIND THE PROPERTY IN THE ADJACENT MAP CANNOT BE SEEN OR HEARD FROM THE APARTMENT.

Golf: Baviera Golf course is approx 10miles along the motorway.
