    The town of Nerja is undoubtedly going to feature in a holiday from a rental villa in Frigiliana. The town is just a few kilometres away, and acts as the administrative and commercial centre for the surrounding villages. Nerja is also a pretty town which has staved off the advancement of concrete hotels whilst providing a range of facilities for tourists and locals alike. The beaches around Nerja are reason enough to rent a holiday villa here on their own, but Nerja has more to offer. Nerja golf offers a variety of courses to enjoy, and during the winter, skiing in the Sierra Nevada is not far away.

    Hitting the hiking trails around Frigiliana holiday cottages

    A Frigiliana villa rental isn't just a chance to delve into the tight-knit alleyways of Andalusia's iconic Moorish town. It could also be a great base for breaking into the wilds of the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Almara Natural Park. That vast reserve spreads out to the north, unfolding in a crumpled landscape of dusty valleys and rugged gorges that come dashed with groups of olive trees and chestnuts. In all, it covers a trio of mountain ranges, which puts the option of countless hikes on the itinerary. Popular walks include the ascent up 2,000-metre-high La Maroma, which gathers dustings of snow in the winter, and the hike to Castillo de Lizar, above Frigiliana itself, where sweeping panoramas of the Costa del Sol stretch out on all sides.
