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.

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.

Lovely villa, great location

5 of 5
We stayed here the first 2 weeks of July and really enjoyed our time in the villa. The space was great and it is definitely the best equipped villa we've stayed in. Loved the balconies which caught the sun most of the day and the pool was well used by all of us to cool down! Location great-huge supermarket across the road which made eating in a doddle and about a 10 minute walk down to Burriana beach where there are shops, bars and restaurants (would recommend the Burriana Steak House). The centre of Nerja itself is perhaps a 20/25 min stroll away. We enjoyed having the best of both worlds - peace in the villa but hustle and bustle when we wanted it. We didn't hire a car but it's an easy walk to the Nerja Caves and we also got a bus to the Aquavelis Water Park in Torre del Mar which our 8 year old (and us!) really enjoyed. All in all, would recommend this lovely villa as a great place to stay in Nerja.
