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.

General stuff: the property is beautifully clean and all of the fixtures and fittings are high-end and very modern. There are lots of plates, cups/mugs, knives forks etc - we were a party of 6 for our 2nd week and we didn't run out once. The kitchen has both induction and gas hobs so will suit any budding chef and the fridge and freezer were both huge. The pool is salinated rather than chlorinated so there were none of the eye and skin problems that often happen when spending long periods in the water and although not heated it was beautifully warm. Every bedroom had it's own en-suite shower room and all were large and modern and very comfortable. Carlos and Arturo, (the gardener) were very helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. The gardens are lovely and I understand Carlos' mum is responsible for the design; she has obviously put lots of thought and knowledge into them. To be honest I can't say enough about this place - we have rented villas all over Europe and I really don't think we'll be able to beat this one - it is the most perfect place we've ever stayed and that is no exaggeration. The views of the mountains and the bay are wonderful - you can see the A7 motorway from the upper terrace and sometimes you can hear it but it really isn't enough to be intrusive. Thank you all at the villa for helping to make our stay so lovely - truly an experience we would like to repeat and for anyone else that is going to this villa - we envy you!!!

The apartment is exactly as advertised, has everything you might need and it spotlessly clean. The apartment is in a very well maintained complex with lovely gardens and pool and is located a short walk to the centre on Nerja and has a number of restaurants and bars nearby. I highly recommend this apartment for couples or a family with two children. I also found the owner was a pleasure to deal with and very quick to respond to any questions we had.
