Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Frigiliana, Spain your home away from home

Within 5km of the famous beach town of Nerja lays one of the most celebrated villages in Spain. Frigiliana has won many national awards for being the most beautiful village in Spain, and it is easy to see why. Situated on a mountain ridge in the foothills of the Almijara Mountains, and with breath taking views of the sea, Chillar Valley and the Higueron River, the whitewashed villas of Frigiliana and steep streets are hard to ignore when considering a holiday to Spain. Frigiliana is a traditional village with no hotels or resorts, so holiday villas in Frigiliana are rented direct from the owner.

Places to holiday in Frigiliana, Spain

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.

Things to do in Frigiliana, Spain

The streets and squares of Frigiliana are filled with many little boutiques offering local crafts of basket ware, ceramics, linen and lace which you will not find elsewhere.

A few miles from a rental villa in Frigiliana is one of the oldest symbols of Spanish heritage; the Nerja Caves. The oldest cave paintings in Spain adorn the walls of these caves, formed thousands of years ago. Today, the visitor centre manages to ensure the best possible views of these incredible depictions whilst ensuring they survive for generations to come.

Frigiliana is not only pretty, but important historically. The Moors were finally defeated on El Fuerte, the hill which climbs away from the village.

Frigiliana is simply the prettiest, most relaxing place we have ever stayed whilst on holiday. There's something for everyone. Our 4 children (aged 13 -2) all loved it: the pool, the park, Nerja, the water park in Torre del Mar, numerous tapas restaurants. We didn't hire a car and used buses to get around - an adventure in itself but well worth it! As for the apartment, it was fabulous. A real home from home! I wondered if we'd struggle without air con but we honestly didn't. The ceiling fans were great. Loved having a washing machine - Damien has been so accommodating and thought of everything. We're so sad to have left but we'll most definitely be returning! Thank you from all of us!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The complimentary vino was much appreciated after a long day travelling. This is a lovely, comfortable apartment at the bottom of the old town of Frigiliana. Wonderful views out to the coast, and the centre of the village is straight up the (very pretty!) steps, with Calle Réal and it's many shops, bars and places to eat. No need to drive anywhere, as everything is literally on your doorstep. The apartment itself is bright, tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Fully equipped kitchen, TV with ALL uk channels, DVD, sound system. Lovely terraces, 2 bathrooms and a/c in both the very comfy bedrooms. The communal pool was great. Less than a minute away, never busy, with free sun beds for use. Great for lazy days when you don't fancy the beach. Nerja is less than 10 minutes away with its wealth of shopping, eateries and numerous beaches. Less than an hour by car from Malaga airport, this is a conveniently located apartment for exploring the coast and Andalucia. Grenada and The Alhambra is only an hour away. Thank you to Debbie & Sharon for making all aspects of our stay simple, stress-free and really, really enjoyable. A great holiday and can't recommend enough. Paul, Rosie & Famiky.
