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.

From our initial enquiry the owner, Harald, was so helpful with our questions and making arrangements for us. The apartment itself was everything that we could have asked for. It was very clean and tidy. For a holiday stay it had all the appliances that you might need whether you ate at home or not. The beds were extremely comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. The main living room was light and airy mainly due to the large sliding doors leading out onto the terrace. Now the terrace! Wow! It was huge, had plenty of seating and was a real sun-trap and overlooked the large swimming pool. The best feature of all was that it was so quiet and peaceful – so near to everything but so peaceful. Turning right out of the apartment leads you to the beach within 50 metres and right by the Seafood restaurant Chiringuito Torrecilla 3.The food here is excellent and is also a lovely place to have an afternoon drink overlooking the beach. In front of the apartment block is a small slope leading up to all the other bars, cafés, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. If you were to turn left then within 5 minutes you would find a row of cafés including Ruskins. English owned it has really friendly staff and serves good food and great tapas. (see my review on TripAdvisor).. Next door are 2 supermarkets. If you had turned right then within 100 metres you would find the ever popular Café Mirasol. Again nice staff, good food and a nice place to sit and ‘People Watch’. A bit further on is a small supermarket which has all the essentials that you will need. If not speak to Jo , who is English, and she will try to get it for you. Self-catering? Next door is a butcher with a large range of fresh meat, chicken etc, A further 5-10 minutes comfortable walk and you reach the famous ‘Balcon de Europa’ with its outstanding views plus a myriad of bars and cafés. Finally on a Thursday a short taxi ride takes you up in the hills to Frigiliana. A lovely little village with a small but well stocked market. Well worth the visit. Finally one word of warning to prospective renters of this great apartment. PLEASE do not book the same dates as I will be next year. Enjoy.

The views are amazing and it's very conveniently situated for the town and Burriana beach. We could not recommend this property highly enough and will return again in the future.
