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.

The locality was great with an added bonus of a really good restaurant virtually next door. There is also a couple of small shops a few minutes walk for fresh croissants for breakfast. The appartment itself was very adequate with the added bonus of newly fitted air conditioning (thanks Paul) which meant comfortable nights as well. For those wanting self catering, the kitchen was well equipped. Both bedrooms had comfortable beds with plenty of wardrobe space. The balcony was great, and the sun would be on it from morning till dusk. This was great for alfresco lunch or pre dinner drink before going out. We also used the pool a few times and we felt that the water temperature was heaven about 5pm after a hot day out. The owner Paul was always ready to help as well as Karen who looks after the property. Frigiliana still retains it's charm and I'm sure we will be returning soon.

Couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The private pool is a perfect addition, we had people coming by to check the water quality in the pool over the course of our 2 weeks. When we come back to Nerja, we will be booking here, no question. Close to everything, just an amazing two week stay!
