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 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.
