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.

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!

Lovely house / apartment with everything thought of to ensure you have a comfortable stay. The house is situated very close to the beach & local amenities which is fantastic. Hiring a car would be beneficial as it gives you flexibility to visit Nerja Balcon de Europa especially in the evening - lovely restaurants, good shopping & fab for having a stroll & enjoying the bustling town. I would definitely recommend Nerja for couples or families, the owner of the house provides excellent communication & although the tv/Internet was at times temperamental Louise made every attempt to rectify the issue. Highly recommend this holiday apartment / house, it was just lovely!

A gorgeous pool in a garden overlooking the beach. (Pool chairs are provided in the apartment) There is also a lifeguard on duty which was great as we were travelling with a young child. It's just around the corner from some lovely restaurants and little shops. At night you can listen to street music from the balcony and do some people watching, we really enjoyed this. Sonny was always easily contactable and very willing to help if needed. Thanks for a wonderful stay in Nerja!
