"Fantastic Holiday"

5 of 5
This was our first stay in Nerja for 15 years. The resort still has a very pleasing atmosphere both during the day and also at nightime, with plenty of restaurants of varying cuisine all within easy walking distance. The apartment was excellent, having everything you need for a great holiday, including a lovely pool area. The furnishings are of high quality with a really comfy bed, and there is a choice of air conditioning or ceiling fans. It also boasts a balcony with sea views across the bay, ideal for dining or just relaxing. We can't recommend this highly enough.

Stunning place is a beautiful area

5 of 5
This was our 2nd visit to Casa Belmonte and it is still as lovely as we remember it. There is everything you require for a home from home stay, the villa is lovely, spacious and clean and has all the facilities that you need. The views from the villa are amazing, the photo's really don't do it justice. Lake Vinuela is so blue, and you can see the sea and the olive trees which you never get tired of. If you want to relax you can sit around the pool, have a BBQ, get fresh eggs daily from the chickens. Hilary and Rob were very accommodating and met up with us on arrival, as per the first time we stayed they showed us around the property letting us know of any changes since the last time we stayed. They were on hand to provide any help we needed and also arranged a mini-bus to take us to the next village Periana so we could go out for a family meal and a drink so we didn't have to take the car. They also have a book there to provide ideas to do while you are there if you are stuck. The villa is about an hour away from the airport, 30 minutes from the beach in Torre del Mar which has a big market on a Thurs 9-2pm. The Eroski supermarket is about 20 minutes away which has everything you would need for shopping and your stay, or there is a Lidl if you want a cheaper shop. If you want something a bit closer, just down the hill (in your car) there are some restaurants and bars, with a bakery, butchers and small supermarket for local and international produce. If our feeling a bit adventurous you can take a trip into the nearby villages for the traditional Spanish atmosphere, where the locals are friendly, especially if you try and give Spanish a try. We visited when the ferrias (Spanish festivals) were taking place with amazing atmospheres and great photo opportunities (Alhama de Granada and Puente de Salia). I would definitely recommend a stay at Casa Belmonte and can only say wonderful things about the place and the hosts :-)
