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.

Places to holiday in Nerja

The best beaches in Nerja are Burriana, Carabeo, El Playazo and El Chucho, and a Nerja holiday villa, luxury apartment or rental home on any of these beaches provides the added space and privacy to allow you to relax fully.

The Capistrano Oasis is a small development outside Nerja, set in the midst of palm trees, lush vegetation and aromatic trees. Luxury and self-catering villas in Nerja are low rise, providing an idyllic spot to wind down and relax.

Punta Lara is 1km west of Nerja. It is an attractive village boasting some of the best luxury villas in Nerja, and most villas have pools and gardens. The village is set very near to Playazo Beach.

Alternatively, San Juan de Capistrano is an Andalucian village surrounded by tropical gardens and breathtaking panoramic views. It is a favorite destination for artists, as well as golf enthusiasts, as there is a top class golf course within 20 minutes.

Fantastic holiday property!

5 of 5
This is a great property for your holiday in Spain. 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!

Very comfortable, great location

5 of 5
This was our 3rd time renting in Frigiliana and as before I tried to research as much as possible before deciding on this property. The locality was great with an added bonus of a really good restaurant virtually next door. There is also a couple of small shops a few minutes walk for fresh croissants for breakfast. The appartment itself was very adequate with the added bonus of newly fitted air conditioning (thanks Paul) which meant comfortable nights as well. For those wanting self catering, the kitchen was well equipped. Both bedrooms had comfortable beds with plenty of wardrobe space. The balcony was great, and the sun would be on it from morning till dusk. This was great for alfresco lunch or pre dinner drink before going out. We also used the pool a few times and we felt that the water temperature was heaven about 5pm after a hot day out. The owner Paul was always ready to help as well as Karen who looks after the property. Frigiliana still retains it's charm and I'm sure we will be returning soon.
