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.

We love its peace and tranquility surrounded by the olive and fruit trees. The view from the balcony takes full advantage of the elevated position of the house, looking over to top of Frigiliana and Nerja, over the Mediterranean and on a clear day you can make out the mountains of Morocco; just incredible. We were the in February so the lovely woodburner was very much appreciated in the evenings. The area is so varied with many things to see from beach resorts, to stunning mountain landscapes to fascinating historical sites. We love it so much that we are already booked for 2018!

A beautiful location and a base with all the amenities of home. The owner provides a welcome package including food and a bottle of wine, really appreciated. Hope to return in the future, and would highly recommend if you want a relaxing or busy holiday. Only downside for my wife and I, both late 60s was the steep gradients but we managed. Plenty of restaurants and bars and even better ice cream parlours to enjoy. Loved it.

We received a lovely warm welcome from Sharon on arrival in Frigiliana. She showed us round the luxurious apartment and pointed out all the important points e.g. Gas, hot water and welcome pack which was gratefully received since we arrived on a Sunday! It was particularly helpful to know that Sharon lived next door and was happy to accommodate us with anything we needed. And we did need her on our third night of our holiday when we managed to lock ourselves out. We felt incredibly silly but Sharon took over and sent us away to have dinner. All was sorted on our return. She is a gem. The apartment is beautifully decorated with some lovely touches. However the best bit for us was the stunnng view from the balcony which is smallish but cleverly and efficiently laid out. Frigiliana is a gem of a find with its narrow streets and colourful shops. Sharon and Debbie's apartment is perfectly situated in the old town with easy access to all the best restaurants. We will definitely return.
