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.

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.

The walk into the town along the beaches is very pleasant. one can stop for a drink or bite to eat if needed at the various bars and restaurants on route. The property has all the amenities you need. a big plus is that the Tropicana pool and bar is only a few minutes walk away. The staff there are very friendly and helpful.
