The owners provided loads of useful information on the apartment and surrounding areas, smoothing our way to a relaxing holiday. The views from the apartment into the hills and down to the coast are spectacular, and it is ideally located for easy access by car from the main roads, and then by foot to the rest of Frigiliana. A little gem.

It's a lovely property in a really peaceful location, but only about five minutes drive from Canillas de Aceituno if you want to eat out. The views over the mountains are fantastic. I'd recommend the location for anyone interested in mountain walking, but if you want to just chill out by the pool and look at the view (like we did!), then this is the place for you.
