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!

A wonderful holiday in fantastic accommodation

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Eva and Eli's beautiful apartment, and have already discussed when we can go back. The accommodation is clean, bright and extremely tastefully decorated to a very high standard. Eva and Eli have provided everything you could need in a holiday accommodation and our party immediately felt at home when we arrived. Their customer service was second to none, and they were always only a text away if needed. I went to Nerja with my parents and sister. The apartment is well located, only minutes from the beach and about a 10 minute stroll in to the centre of Nerja, so easy to access the town. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nerja, and the accommodation was definitely the highlight. The only problem is we didn't want to leave. We'll hopefully be back next year if you will have us Eva and Eli. Thank you again.

Great apartment in beautiful village

5 of 5
We arrived late but received a warm welcome from Robert, who gave us a quick introduction and some useful local info. 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.
