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.

The owner made us feel so welcome and was very accommodating with arrival and departure times. We only wish we had been staying longer. There are many facilities on hand and we also enjoyed the walks to various, beautiful beaches. We heartily recommend the apartment and very much hope to return in the future.

Everything was of the highest standard and the views were breathtaking ! . We found lovely places to eat a short walk away and didn't find the walk home daunting at all .We would definitely recommend staying here and will be back !
