This property lived up to those expectations in every way. There was excellent communication with the owners and with the lady who was on hand to meet and greet us on arrival and show us around the house. She was also well informed about the town and local area. The house was very cosy and comfortable with a very well thought out sunroom/roof terrace. We have lived in a bungalow for 30 years so we're not used to the 39 steps from the ground floor kitchen dinner to the roof terrace however we got used to them after a couple of days and did not find them a problem although those with mobility issues might struggle. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would be happy to stay there again. The house is well positioned in this small town and the slightly larger town of Competa is just a 35 minute walk away. You could do the walk in about 25 minutes but we kept stopping to take in the view. Whilst on the subject of views, the one from the roof terrace is fabulous.

Everything was as described on the website about the house. Kitchen (well-equipped) and living/dining room in the upper level, which has access to an amazing terrace facing south towards Frigiliana and the Mediterranean. Downstairs the bedroms and bathroom are; as well as access to the garden. The house was rustic and charming, exactly what houses should look like in Andalucia. It was easily heated in the chilly evenings; has a very effective wood burning stove as well as several electric heaters. It was very private and a very quiet area, although it was only 1400 m to the entrance of Frigiliana; it took us 15-20 minutes to walk there (to Frigiliana it is downhill, and back home is uphill). We were bringing our 2 dogs and they immediately felt at home; the only thing we would have loved, was if the property (or part of it) was fenced, so the dogs could run out by themselves. Frigiliana is a beautiful village! We were cycling many hours every day, and the roads are generally in very good condition, except 8 km between the house and Torrox. It is very hilly terrain, the only flat is along the coastline to the west of Nerja. There are an abundance of spectacular MTB routes in the area. The access to the house is easy, the entrance is just few metres off the road. Sharon was very kind and welcoming and we couldn't have had a better stay! We really look forward to come back in June/July, to spend the summer holidays in this wonderful house; and enjoy long warm summer evenings sitting on the terrace resting after a hard day of training in the muntains. We highly recommend the house and Sharon, you won't be disappointed.
