About the property

2 bed 1 bath AC large terrace with uninterupted sea views sleeps 4

This lovely apartment nestles in the breathtaking horseshoe valley namely El Capistrano Playa. The position and stunning architecture make it one of the most remarkable village complexes to be found anywhere in the Mediterranean. The large terrace enjoys spectacular views of Burriana Beach. After strolling through the tropical gardens and cascading waterfalls, you arrive at the beach to watch the early morning fishermen land their catch of sardine and anchovy. Later in the day relax at one of the palm-fringed beach bars or fish restaurants and watch the sun set.

The apartment has been updated re-decorated and re-furbished throughout for the 2013 season.Satellite TV, Air conditioning and heating are among many additional features provided for the benefit of our guests. New for 2013 is a Wifi connection (at small extra charge). In summer the onsite restaurant and bar adjoins the swimming pool that has a sunbathing area with loungers plus separate children's pool.

The centre of Nerja is 15mins stroll away. There is steps to and from apartment, it is not suitable for infant children if you need a stroller or if you have any problems walking in stairs.

Nerja and Capistrano Playa: Nerja, only 45 mins drive from Malaga airport is unspoilt by high-rise holiday development and retains its unique Andalucian character. In addition to the famous Burriana Beach, Nerja boasts many small coves reached by walking the Paseo de los Carabineros from Burriana to the Balcon. Swim or relax on the beach. Take the sun as you eat the fresh caught sardines on the beachfront Cafes. For the more energetic, scuba and diving trips can be arranged for experienced and novices alike. Excursions can be arranged from the resort and other attractions include horse riding and walking. The famous prehistoric caves can be visited all year round.

Nerja is not just a summer resort; it retains its unique charm all year round claiming one of the best climates in Europe. This is in part due to the surrounding Almijara mountains whose pine-clad slopes shelter the resort and provide stunning views and ideal countryside for walkers. Capistrano Playa has its own restaurant and snack bar next to the swimming pool. The communal facilities include two swimming pools. NB: Pool subject to closure for maintenance in winter period. Due to the location of the apartment the setting may not be suitable for those with special mobility needs.

Local to Nerja: Visit nearby Moorish hill villages such as Frigiliana and Competa and sample the local wines and cuisine. Drive to Lake Vinuela and Canillas de Aceituna on the fringes of the forested National Park. Drive the coast road and take paths down to the many coves and semi-deserted beaches formed as the mountains tumble into the sea. The spectacular Cerro Gordo peninsular affords views back along Granada province and also Granada province with its delightful coastal towns. Between La Herradura and Almunecar lies Marina del Este. Why not take a coffee watching the yachts bobbing in the harbour. On to Motril and north towards Granada. Off the main road to visit Valle de Lecrin or Orgiva, made famous by Chris Stewart's Driving Over Lemons. Then on to Granada, the Alhambra Palace and the Sierra Nevada in easy driving distance. Why not mix a beach and ski holiday? So much to see and do.

Take a holiday out of season and spend your time around this wonderful corner of Andalucia.

About Cristel Palmqvist

We are couple from Sweden (Cristel and Anders Palmqvist) who recently fell in love with Nerja. I'm a business woman, runnig multiply companies. My husband Anders is working with real estates. We have two children, 20 and 19 years old.

Cristel Palmqvist purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Cristel Palmqvist chose Nerja

Me and my husband travelled to Spain to try to find a place in the sun for us.When we first came to Nerja we both knew our searching was over. Standing on Balcon of the Europe, seeing the magnificent colour of the see against the mountains, walking around the really beautiful Spanish buildnings, the wondeful weather ...Everything fell into place and we new we had found our spot. It was breathtaking.

Nerja is amazing, eating, and drinking is not expensive and there is so much to do, or just relax depending on what you feel like. After lokking at 49 propertys we fell in love with this 'petit' apartment and bought it.

What makes this apartment unique

The view, and it's close to everything; restaurants, night-life, beach shop's... Everything is on your doorstep, but still you have a nice quiet and lovely terrace where you can relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the fantastic view. There is no need to have a car, everything is close. And no worry if you get lost - you just follow the beach and always find your way home :)

This Apartment is superb! From the moment you arrive the views are beautiful. We were there in March & you expect mixed weather but whatever the weather was doing it still was a stunning view. Inside it's clear that the owners love the apartment. From the beginning with booking the owner was warm, friendly and helpful. There was heating and extra blankets for when it was cooler and good wifi. The apartment has a modern but cosy feel. The outside furniture is also very comfortable. We have stayed at Capistrano playa before and love it.......the position of 105 adds to the lovely area. There are lots of steps so not good for people with mobility issues but the steps kept us fit and are worth it for the views. We would definitely return.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Capistrano Playa a few times before but apartment 105 has certainly been the best apartment we've stayed in. Not only is it bright, modern and well equipped but the 2 tiers of terrace are a real asset. We only made it to the the beach once in our 8 day stay as we were more than happy to soak up the sun and glorious views from the very comfortable sunloungers provided on the terrace. There are a lot of steps around the complex but don't let that put you off as it's certainly a beautiful place with wonderful views. Whilst we were there a newly married couple were even having some wedding photos taken around the complex. We had a fabulous holiday and hope to return sometime soon.

Lovely apartment with stunning sea views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Capistrano Playa complex a couple of times now, and this apartment (105) probably tops the lot due to its location at the front of the complex - no more than 5 minutes to the beach. The apartment itself is clean and comfortable, and communication from the owners is first-rate, with onsite help from Isabel (who is based in the office behind the complex) if required.

Also a great base for discovering the cities of Malaga and Granada, as well as the local villages and the Nerja Caves.

We hope to return soon!

What a view from the stunning balcony !!!!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved this apartment. Nice inside with ac and all kitchen needs etc but the massive two tier balcony and great beach , lagoon and sea view is where this really excels.

Yes there are a lot of steps, quite hard work with luggage but the layout of the complex built like a hillside white washed village is great and you would not get this amazing building if all built as boring block of apartments with mutiple lifts.

only 5-10 mins walk to beach, bars and some nice restaurants. Poolbar closes early september so a shame could not get any snacks when sunbathing by pool.

highlight for us was pre dinner drinks and breakfast on balcony, looking out to see and people watching .

tbanks Cristel and Anders ,your apartment is fab. Isabel at the apartments was great and really helpful if we needed anything.

Nice apartment with great views over the beach area. Difficult walk down and up to the apartment especially the section over the rocks which were very slippy .

very comfortable but definitely not suitable for anyone with any kind of mobility problem.

We would not return

The Best EVER !!

  • 5 of 5

The wonderful location, the nice and well equipped apartment, the views and most of all the big terrace with sun almost all day. We will come again. There were a lot of steps but it kept us fit so we could eat more of the great food : ).

The apartment was very cleaned and Nerja is a great city with lots to do and see.

Thank you for a splendid vacation

Mark and Louise

Capistrano Playa is situated 250m from Burriana beach and 20 min walk from the centre of Nerja which is considered by many as the most attractive town on the Costa del Sol. Its policy of avoiding high-rise developments has left the narrow winding streets, whitewashed houses and palm-lined promenade of the Balcon de Europa, to be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Just 50min drive from Malaga airport, a hire car or taxi can be arranged. There is also a bus service via Malaga central

Other Activities: Caving, Scuba

Golf: BAVIERA GOLF is situated in La Caleta and it is only a short drive from Nerja. AÑORETA GOLF CLUB is only thirty kilometres away in Rincón de la Victoria and there are several other courses within an hours drive.

Ski: Just think of it! Skiing down the fabulous Sierra Nevada in the morning then onto the beach to sunbathe and swim for the afternoon. Contact Cristel or Anders for details.
