About Stephen Todd

Stephen Todd is an architect who retired in 1997 and accidentally started to adopt abandoned dogs and cats, currently seven of each.

Jackie Todd wrote about moving to Spain and adopting the animals. Her book 'Dog Days in Andalucia' is available from Amazon. Sadly Jackie died in 2010.

Stephen has since been extraordinarily lucky and married Patricia. He speaks Spanish and lives close by his rental properties providing on site help when needed.

Stephen Todd purchased this house in 1997

Why Stephen Todd chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

You only have to walk in to La Panificadora to be transported to a world of Arabian nights. This stunning house was part of a group of flour and olive mills driven by water brought from the mountains in channels built by the Moors. It has been sensitively converted to maintain the character and beautifully decorated with handmade tiles and original ceramics and paintings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

La Panificadora er et vidunderligt hus - billederne lyver ikke. Vi har besøgt huset 2 gange og vi har følt os fuldstændig hjemme hver gang. Huset er smukt indrettet, haven er frodig helt privat og på balkonen er der stort set sol fra morgen til aften. Frigiliana ligger 15 minutters gåtur derfra - en smuk, hvid og autentisk bjergby. Nerja ligger 15 minutters kørsel derfra - også en smuk by med gode indkøbsmuligheder og badestrande. Der er mange udflugtsmuligheder - hvis man altså kan nænne at forlade huset.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with my husband and 4 children aged 11 to 17. We thought it was going to be nice but it was amazing. I stayed in many places and don't often feel excited at arriving somewhere but this property and place was a rare find. We loved the place itself with the thick white walls, nooks and crannies and you could say a bit all over the place but here it totally works. So many seating areas, both inside and out. The pool isn't huge but very appealing, you want to be out there. Our children had great fun in it. The bar across the way (25 steps) is a definite plus, a nice distraction and even the 11 year old could go across for his cola (not something we would normally advocate for an 11 year old). Thank you to Stephen and Patricia and well done on providing a beautiful property for us and fellow travellers.

True luxury and comfort - Amazing

  • 5 of 5

yself my wife our 3 young daughters and my father and mother in law stayed in the Panificadora for two weeks this August. What can I say? The Panificadora exceeded all expectations. We had previously stayed in villas in the mountains around Frigiliana and found that we spent a lot of time in the car driving to Frigiliana, Nerja and supermarkets in town. However, this time because La Panificadora is located in the beautiful hamlet of la molineta we were located ideally. A 5 minute drive to the breathtaking village of Frigiliana and 15 munites from Nerja Town, beach and supermarkets. This time therefore we spent minimal time driving and maximum time relaxing and exploring the aforementioned locations. As for the house itself, it blew us away as soon as we arrived through the front door. The history, authentic decor with clever modern artistic touches and amazing views of the countryside leave you feeling privileged to be staying there. Most impressively though it feels like a home rather than a holiday rental villa. The facilities are great and especially having a large size double American fridge really makes a difference to having the usual under counter fridge with tiny ice box! The owners Stephen and Patricia were an unexpected bonus to the holiday. They provided such a warm welcome and if you are interested in finding out about the local area they are only too happy to advise. Best place to meet them is the little bar only a few yards opposite the house. It's a great place to watch the world go by and meet some of the locals. An amazing holiday. Thank you!

Memorable

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa - the interior was of a very high standard and exceptionally clean.

The kitchen had everything that you would need, including a huge fridge and a stunning view of the Andalucian mountains from the kitchen window. A great dish washing view!

The outside pool area is a delight, lovely pool and very comfortable sun loungers. There were six in our party and the villa and the outside area could not have been more perfect. The outside BBQ was a great addition for al fresco dining.

There is a bar next door which is typically Spanish serving ice cold beers, good wine and a variety of tapas at very reasonable prices.

We were a little concerned before we got there as to the location of the villa as previously we have stayed in Frigiliana village. Our concerns were completely unfounded - the location couldn't be more ideal. Frigiliana is a short walk or five mins maximum in the car.

Stephen and Patricia, the owners, are exceptionally friendly hosts and eager to pass on their vast experience of the area.

A truly memorable holiday!

Stunning Property in the 'Real Spain'

  • 5 of 5

La Panificadora is one of those rare finds that you almost don't want anybody else to discover. The property itself is executed to the highest standard possible. The outdoors area is stunning with a decent sized pool and plenty of space. Our group of six found the place spacious enough to accommodate everybody quite happily and the decor and finishings inside make this place truly memorable and special.

It's location is superb, a 5 minute drive to the bustle of Nerja and the coast, and a 15 minute walk up to the gorgeous Spanish hilltop village of Frigiliana. La Panificadora itself sits in a tiny hamlet with one fantastic bar that I defy anyone to walk past without stopping in.

Stephen and Patricia who own the property are extremely hospitable and are on hand should anything be required (which it wasn't). All in all, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I have also stayed in Casa Rosa (the next door property) which is also equally stunning if you are in a smaller group.

Andalucia is the largest autonomous region of Spain with a fascinating history and rich cultural heritage. The people are laid back and welcoming, the countryside is magnificent and the climate is mild in winter and hot in summer.

Granada and the Alhambra Palace are not to be missed but the Old Town and harbour side in nearby Malaga are well worth a visit. Here you will find the Picasso Museum.

There is winter skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada, water sports all along the coast and golf on championship courses.

Set on the edge of a National Park, Frigiliana has been awarded prizes for the most beautiful village in Spain. Cobbled streets with flower filled balconies and intimate shady courtyards transport the visitor back to the scented Arabian nights of the Moorish conquerors. There are fine restaurants and rustic bars with great local dishes and wines.

Each town and village has it´s own Saint´s day and colourful noisy fiestas. San Antonio on the 13th June in Frigiliana and San Isidro on the 15th May in Nerja.
