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 really did exceed our expectations it was modern, spacious, immaculate and had everything we needed as a family with teenage kids. The kitchen was fully equipped so we had some great meals at home, teenagers appreciated the UK TV and WIFI! The location is perfect for the beach and a short walk into Nerja town, we hardly used the rental car. Louise was contactable at all times (but we didn't need to as nothing went wrong). The house really made another trip to this beautiful place even more special.

The property was clean and well equipped for a self catering stay. Communications with Sharon were excellent and we were pleasantly greeted with beer and wine. It really is a little piece of paradise.
