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

In the town of Nerja itself, you cannot fail to investigate the 17th century church of El Salvador and the conjoining Gardens of Capistrano Playa, which run down the hill all the way to the famous Burriana Beach, a blue flagged golden sandy beach. 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.

The apartment is well fitted out with everything you would need for a relaxing break, including TV channels to enjoy in many languages! Apartment is within easy reach of the beach and town centre. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment.

It was very tastefully decorated, easily accessed and had every facility one could wish for in the apartment. It was also in close proximity to several very good restaurants, namely El Casino, El Bouquetilla. The swimming pool area was excellent and I enjoyed the jacuzzi. It is so easy to get to Nerja on the bus too. All in all a fantastic place to have a holiday even with it being on a busy road, you get used to the traffic and we would certainly return and recommend to others.
