San Juan de Capistrano & Nerja: San Juan is an ideal location for a quiet or family holiday. Our apartment is a 5 minute stroll away from the central area which contains 2 supervised swimming pools which are open from Easter until the end of October (one of which is for small children and completely separate from the main pool), 2 restaurants (open all year) several poolside bars, and a mini-market (Easter to end October). The main pool has a grass terrace with impressive views over Nerja. Jeeves, our management company will deal with any problems or questions that you may have during your stay is located at San Juan de Capistrano next to the pool and mini-market. A regular bus service into the town centre runs well into the evening. Parking is available, and access to the apartment is via a small flight of approx 12 steps.
Andalucia: Nerja is ideally situated to explore central & eastern Andalucia. One of the main attractions is Granada's Alhambra Palace. The Alhambra was the palace-fortress of the Nasrid Sultans, rulers of the last Spanish Muslim kingdom and is one of the most exciting, sensual, and romantic of all European monuments, make sure you book your tickets as soon as you arrive as the number of daily visitors is limited. The drive up to Granada takes you though the Lecrin valley with it’s groves of oranges, lemons and almond trees, the latter being a riot of pink & white blossom in late winter. Just before you enter the Lecrin Valley you'll pass the road to Orgiva and Las Alpujarras, made ‘famous’ by Chris Stewart in his book Driving Over Lemons. Other attractions within easy reach are Alhama de Granada (the site of a thermal spring open to the public), Ronda (located astride a dramatically beautiful tajo, or gorge), Cordoba and Sevilla. For the more adventurous, day trips to North Africa are available

Unfortunately, as a result of problems that we had in past, we do accept bookings from single sex groups.
The first time that we saw the apartment is was vacant as the previous owners had just moved back to the UK and they had it was untidy and they had left a lot of thier belongings in it. However, it was the size of the apartment, the balcony and the fantastic views over Nerja and the surrounding countryside that won us over immediately. We looked at a few other properties, but we always knew that this one was the one we were going to but, and we havn't regreted it for one minute since
Nerja basks in year round sunshine and combines tradition Andalucian charm with a modern cosmopolitan holiday resort. The pine clad slopes of the Almijara mountains shade the resort, provide a stunning views and is ideal countryside for walkers (but maybe not in summer!!). San Juan de Capistrano is an attractive urbanisation nestling in the foothills of these mountains less than a mile from the town centre. Nerja is a delightful former fishing village nestling amongst the foothills of the Almijara mountain range. The old town is centred around the Balcon de Europa, a stone paved, palm lined belvedere which offers magnificent views of the beautiful coastline. Nerja still retains many of the characteristics of a typical Spanish village with it’s tangle of attractive narrow streets which contain a wide variety of bars, restaurants and shops. In addition, there are several sandy beacheds which offer a wide range of activities or the opportunity to spend a lazy day in the sun.
