Recent Reviews

Outstanding property, owners & views. Highly recommended.

5 of 5
Excellent holiday for two weeks in this outstanding property. High spec villa but feels homely, stunning views and outdoor areas for sunbathing and al fresco dining. The village is charming and lots of options for tapas, a drink and a meal. The local beach town is just 30 mins away and is excellent, Spanish resort - no yobs just families enjoying a lovely beach town. I travel widely and I have to say this is now a firm favourite and we plan to return next year.

A wonderful apartment and lovely hosts 😊

5 of 5
We were met by Boz at the apartment and when inside he went over everything. The apartment is lovely a real home from home. There is everything you could possibly need there and the welcome pack was a real bonus. The views from the terraces were absolutely breathtaking. The gas bbq on the roof terrace was great had a lovely couple of meals up there. We will hopefully be returning next year to this wonderful apartment and the beautiful village of frigiliana.
