Set within a short distance from the lovely town of Nerja (2.5 km), Villa El Crucero is one of our favourite properties. This villa is based on a 100-year-old typical “Cortijo” (traditional rural Andalusian property with wide stone walls cool in summer and warm in winter) completely refurbished in 2014. The long sandy beach of Playazo is only 1 km away, easily reached on foot.
Villa El Crucero is located in a peaceful and very private 10,000 square meters’ fruit farm with exotic trees including bananas, avocados, mangos and cherimoyas among others. The villa is ideal for families and groups of up to 10 people who want a relaxing holiday in a natural setting with great views to the mountains and the sea. Free WiFi Internet is included in the price for those that need to stay connected to the outside world.
The pictures do not do enough justice to this amazing villa once which you enter by its electric gate to the large parking area (up to 4 cars). The whole property (inside and outside) has been designed to provide easy access on foot or by using a wheelchair, ideal for families with disabled or elderly members. We are fully aware how hard is to find a place that fits everyone’s needs, including families with babies!
There are various terraces at the back and the front of the villa, leading to the covered BBQ area located next to the 2 salt-water pools, outside toilet and sun-bathing area. The main pool is 10 metres long, ideal for those who want to play or swim, while the smaller pool can be used as a jacuzzi (heated on demand), great for the evenings and amazing in the winter months.
The living space inside Villa El Crucero consist of the main house and a self-contained apartment.
In the main house, you can find a large living room (with open fireplace), an open plan kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a cloak-room (toilet) plus an external toilet next to the swimming pool. One of the bathrooms has been adapted for wheelchair access in 2016. There is air conditioning (hot/cold) in the main bedroom.
The separate self-contained apartment is in the ground floor with a kitchenette, a bathroom and twin beds. There is air conditioning in the apartment.
After walking miles in Nerja and the surrounding areas, you can relax in the comfortable sofas in the living room and the flat screen TV. Bring some movies with you as there is also a DVD-player. The kitchens are very well equipped. The main kitchen has a dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and various utensils.
Villa El Crucero is the perfect location for a short holiday or a longer-term stay. It offers everything you need for relaxation and if you want to enjoy the restaurants, shops and beaches of the city, all that is within a short distance from the villa.

Villa El Crucero belongs to Pepe, an extremely nice man that wants to ensure the property is well looked after to ensure guests have a great holiday, feeling at home away from home.
Pepe is constantly improving El Crucero and has invested a lot of money in features not usually found in other properties including the salt-water pools and the jacuzzi.
The large space both inside and outside means that a large family/group or various smaller families can stay together with reasonable private space.
The farm surrounding the property is very large and Pepe's brother and father work on it ad-hoc as they are the ground keepers.
The Jacuzzi is activated on demand so please let us know if you intend to use it
Spacious, several pools, free WiFi internet, air conditioning (hot/cold), up to 10 people with use of 4 bathrooms and 1 outside toilet, great outdoor space, BBQ, mountain and sea views, very private.
We stayed here in September 2016 the Villa was lovely and spacious, the pool was salt water, very clean and good for kids. Outside eating area with BBQ and pizza oven was a bonus. Nearest supermarket is Lidl, we did walk it in 25 mins but hard going in the heat. The beach is 15 mins walk.
We didn't hire a car but I think it would be advisable staying here. Also some local taxi firms didn't know the location of the villa (keep this in mind if you get a taxi as you'll have to direct them) Best to use taxi's that the host recommends. Over all it was a most enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend for a large party.
What Jodie loved about your listing:
The pool and sunbathing area. spaciousness of the whole Villa.
Great rustic place with a great location and spectacular view close to Nerja, Beaches, high way etc. We had a really pleasant and cozy holiday with our children. The property has plenty of space. We all loved the place especially the children. Description is in alignment with reality. A really nice and spacey place, which we can recommend.
In the corner of the property the gardener has his small cottage and some chickens and a kitchengarden. He is the owners’ brother and is there from early morning to late afternoon every day, except Sundays. He was very nice and friendly indeed and brought us some vegetables and eggs. Big downside was a lack of feeling private.
If going to the beach we will recommend to visit Nerja’s beaches instead of the local – It takes only 5-10 min. to drive there.
The heating of Jacuzzi as well as the internet did not work on arrival, but Maribel (the agency’s represent) who was really friendly and helpful solved both problems. The pool was actually very nice and large, but during our 15 days stay there were no cleaning of the pool (sand at bottom, insects in the baskets and surface and a dead mouse on the bottom, which we removed ourselves).
A minor detail: The double beds are Only 120 cm wide.
