Make a holiday rental home or villa in Nerja Spain your home away from home

Nerja marks the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol. It is sandwiched between the sea and the Sierra Almijara Mountains to the east. Nerja has managed to avoid the high-rise development which has come to characterize mush of the Costa del Sol. Nerja, Spain is best known as the Balcon de Europa or balcony of Europe. This refers to the promenade running along a shear cliff face, giving panoramic views all across the bays and coves of the coastline set against a mountainous backdrop. Most Nerja villas or apartments in Nerja have views similar to that of the balcony of Europe.

Things to do on Holiday in Nerja

Here, all the major water sports are available, especially scuba diving, sailing and water skiing.

Just 3km from Nerja are the Nerja Caves, the third most visited attraction in Spain. There is a fascinating cave network, adorned with paintings up to 20,000 years old. One of the caves is so enormous that it has been turned into a concert hall for the summer!

If you have decided to take a self-catering villa in Nerja, the pescaito frito (fried fish) is an essential local delicacy to try.

Beds are really comfy and the balcony is great for chilling in the evening. It is really well located for the beach which is a busy social place. The apartments itself though is quiet and although there are other apartments round about it felt like a private space. The pool is great for a dip on a hot day. Nerja is a lovely town and the Balcon De Europa and old centre can be easily accessed by foot from the apartment. We did not hire a car and managed fine either walking or using the local buses. The only two things that would make this place even better would be if there was a fridge freezer provided. The fridge is tiny and there is no freezer. As a fair skinned Scottish person I would also have liked more shade at the pool area as it is in full sun for most of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Nerja and the apartment was comfortable and homely.
