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.

The house is very well situated for access to the shared pool and the complex itself is very well maintained. I would advise a car as there are plenty of local beaches and towns to visit. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners are very helpful.

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.
