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.

An ideal place to rest and relax

4 of 5
It's been two weeks since we returned from the lovely villa in Nerja and as I head out to work in the rain, battling traffic , I find myself longing to be sitting on the terrace in the sun with a cup of tea again. The villa was ideal for us. Plenty of space to spread out-with two teenage boys that is very important. We had anything we could possibly need-a fab barbecue, all the kitchen equipment, a full sized fridge and freezer, a washing machine etc. The bed in the master bedroom was incredibly comfortable;I slept better than I had in ages. The living room was comfortable and homely and equipped with the all important [to teenagers!] wifi, tv, dvds, books and games. Outside the front door is a lovely pool-big enough to swim properly and quiet enough to do so-unlike a lot of places in August. There was a lifeguard on duty too which would be reassuring if you had little ones. The gardens surrounding the pool were very well maintained and lush and sitting on the grass under the umbrellas was a real pleasure. Nerja itself is a fab holiday destination with plenty of good places to eat, nice beaches and in a good position for exploring. We went to Granada one day which is a must see and Almeira. The caves were also a good trip. If you are there in high season then lidl is open on a Sunday for stocking up the fridge.It's just on the outskirts of town as you come off the motorway. If you need a Dr while in Nerja the Santa Cecilia clinic has English speaking nurses and an American Dr. It is a private clinic though so you will need to pay. Jenny very helpfully sent us full directions with photos before we left for Nerja so finding the villa was easy. I would recommend a car although there is an hourly bus from the complex into town which is very handy and only costs 1 euro each. All in all, we had a lovely relaxing holiday and would recommend the villa as an ideal base for enjoying Nerja.
