Beautiful Three Bedroomed Detached Villa with Private Pool - 2 bathrooms

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,453 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool, garden, air con, free wifi.

The villa is located in Fuente del Baden which is a small and quiet development of detached villas next to El Capistrano Village. The villa is perfect for self-catering holidays with a well equipped kitchen with all you would expect including electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge/freezer and ample storage space. There is a BBQ for al fresco dining on the terrace. If you fancy eating out the nearest restaurants and bars are a ten minute stroll or you can sample some of the many restaurants in the centre of town which are within a thirty minute walk or 5-10 minutes by car. There is also a local bus service running every hour from bus stops either on the main road or from Capistrano village. Burriana beach is a twenty minute walk or five minutes by car. Nearby, and within walking distance are other bars and restaurants, the paddle tennis club and two large supermarkets.

The villa has three double bedrooms all of which have air conditioning. The master bedroom has a veranda and an en suite bathroom. The open plan living area has a lounge with log burning stove. The dining area has a table which sits seven people. Patio doors open onto the terrace. The smart TV in the lounge provides a range of English, Scandinavian and Spanish Freeview channels, a video club with a selection of films and boxed sets, and selection of radio channels. There is a DVD player which also plays CDs through the TV.

Outside the terrace looks out on to the private pool where you can relax on one of the sunbeds or take a dip in the pool. From the poolside you can admire the view over the open land to the sea beyond. In the front of the villa there is a garden and car port for off road parking behind the entrance gates to the property.

Malaga airport to the villa takes approximately 45 minutes. A bus runs from Malaga to Nerja. Buses also run from Nerja to Torre del Mar, Frigiliana, the Caves of Nerja and Almunecar.

Nerja is a fantastic central location. The Sierra Almijara Mountains behind Fuente del Baden are a National Park with great walks and views. The famous Caves of Nerja are a very short distance, and are some of the most spectacular in Spain.

Frigiliana is a short drive away, a typical whitewashed village set high in the mountains, with good restaurants, market and gift shops. A visit to the Alhambra Palace at Granada is a must (although it is essential to book a day or two in advance). There are golf courses within a short drive, and water-sports on the beach.

Our Managing Agents are located in the reception area of Capistrano village which is a ten minute walk from the villa (or short drive). They are open all year round. They maintain the villa on our behalf, and they will address any problems which occur during your stay. They can also help with excursions and any general information needs you may have.

About Lindsay & Bob Rendall

We are an English couple who live in the UK. We first visited Nerja on holiday with our two daughters in 1999. We fell in love with Nerja with its relaxed Spanish feel, and said that we would love to have a property in Nerja in the future. We returned in 2004 and bought a 2 bedroom house in Capistrano village, which we have rented and enjoyed ourselves for the last eleven years.

We purchased Villa Acebo last year with future retirement thoughts in mind, and in the medium term to use as a rental opportunity and to enjoy for our holidays.

Thank you for looking at our villa, and we hope you enjoy Nerja and its surrounding areas as much as we do. Do please contact us if you have any questions on the villa.

Lindsay & Bob Rendall purchased this villa in 2015

Why Lindsay & Bob Rendall chose Nerja

We chose this villa in Fuente del Baden due to its setting in a small quiet development with other similar properties with views across open land to the sea. It is well situated for access both to Nerja town and its beaches, and also for exploring further afield with a good motorway link and scenic coastal roads. Visits to the Nerja caves, Frigliana, Granada and the Alhambra palace, the many beaches and villages along the coast, and a drive into the Almijara mountains are all within reasonable reach.

We feel it is a great location whether you are looking for a beach holiday, mountain walking in the national park, or exploring what the eastern end of the Costa del Sol has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

We like the open plan living style of the villa, with the lounge and dining area, and adjacent kitchen, leading out on to the terrace and poolside. There are lovely views from the poolside over open land to the sea.

There is a large master bedroom with a veranda which looks out over the pool to the country and sea. The room has its own private en suite bathroom. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are double bedrooms with ample wardrobe space.

To the front of the villa is a garden and car port for off road parking behind the gates to the property

Beautiful , Quiet Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great location easy start off point to walk to the center of Nerja, walk to the caves or take a bus to Frigiliana .The Villa was a perfect location for our holiday. Far enough away from the main area to be quiet and peaceful . A car would be helpful but not an absolute necessity as there is great taxi service.

During our stay there were a few nights of rain and we certainly appreciated the wide range of TV stations and the fast reliable internet. We did not make use of the pool as we were there early in the year and the water was to cold for us, but we made good use of the area around the pool and spent many late afternoons relaxing there.

We spent most mornings and early afternoons walking about so we were very impressed with the well equipped kitchen as we cooked most evening meals there.

I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone interested in a beautiful , peaceful place to

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing both inside and outside. There is plenty of room inside and the air conditioning is very good (and quiet). The beds were relatively comfortable, although a couple of extra pillows would not go amiss.

The outside space and pool were great which is where most of the time is spent when you at the property.

Everything was very clean and tidy on arrival and communication with the owners before the visit was excellent. Thanks for the use of your property!

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa! Just back from a 10 day stay at Villa Acebo and wish it could have been longer. Beautiful quiet location but still only 5 mins drive to Nerja centre and Burinana beach. The villa is spotless, we actually arrived early as the cleaners were in and they were meticulous, getting into corners I wouldn't have done myself! Aircon in all bedrooms fab as it was extremely hot for this time of year. Beds the comfiest we have had in years of renting villas in the Area and best equipped kitchen . The pool area, superb, great sunbeds, pool so clean and clear. Also great outside eating areas, shaded when required and charcoal BBQ! Tv has all the channels if you desire, but we didn't avail as it was too nice outdoors. Oh, must mention wifi too as perfect and at no extra charge. The only thing I would have liked would be a full length mirror somewhere , but maybe it's good that there wasn't one! All in all, we would definitely stay here again, in fact we looked at end of September, but it is already booked, so maybe next year. Thank you for a great stay guys!

Our stay at Villa Acebo

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Acebo. The villa was very clean and well equipped, comfortable inside but the outside area and furniture could have been a little more comfortable. The pool is brilliant and was a necessity because of the gorgeous weather.

In this rural setting it is very quiet, day and night which makes for a very relaxing holiday.

13 November 2016 Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We Stayed for a week in this Villa in Nov. The Villa Agents were very helpful, & showed us to the Villa as it might not have been that simple to find, with roadworks etc occasionally blocking the shortest access route.

The villa was spotless when we arrived with plenty of equipment & comfortable furniture. The kitchen appears to have been recently renovated.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, there was absolutely no traffic noise, & we enjoyed the peace & quiet during the week we were there. One of the Villas next door was occupied for part of the week, but there was no noise from that quarter either.

The pool was very clean & inviting, but unfortunately due to the season, too cold to venture in!

I do think a car is a necessity, especially if you're retired, like us & not great walking fans. The beach at Burriano was about 5 mins drive (though very touristy with a gravel beach which didn't appeal). The town centre was maybe 10 mins by car, but parking, even off-season, was a nightmare! We had to use municipal car parks, which were not that cheap.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay in this Villa - much more enjoyable than a Hotel, especially with the TV satellite package allowing you to view literally thousands of films & programmes ( a bit like Netflix). Great if you just wanted a restful evening after a busy day. My only real suggestion for improvement would be - egg cups!! I enjoy a boiled egg at breakfast & I don't think even one of the Villas we've rented over the years has stocked one. Maybe worth taking your own?

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for a week in early November. It is a very nice relaxing place with a pool. The outside area is secluded with an area for cooking and relaxing with ample sunbeds provided. Inside it is nicely decorated with TV providing English channels if required. There are three comfortable bedrooms with two bathrooms and what looks like a newly fitted kitchen with all appliances. The owners were always available to contact for help if required. There is a bar (the cave) a reasonable distance from the villa but a car is helpful in my opinion to get out and about. I would definitely stop here again.

Our villa is situated on Fuente del Baden which is a small, quiet development next to El Capistrano village at the eastern end of Nerja. It is set into the Almijara mountains and looks across to open land, the sea and over to the town. Fuente del Baden is made up of detached villas, many with their own private swimming pools.

Nerja is a well-established resort, built on a cliff above sandy coves, at the foot of the beautiful Sierra de Almijara. At the heart of the town is the Balcon de Europa, a palm tree lined promenade built along the edge of a cliff and out to sea with panoramic views of the Mediterranean and Nerja's sandy beaches stretching to over 16 kilometres in total. The Balcon is a real treat at night when it is beautifully lit and street performers of all kinds come into their own!

Shopping is plentiful and there is a local market every Tuesday.

If you do not want to drive, local travel companies have trips to Granada, Ronda, Marbella, Gibraltar, Seville and Cordoba throughout the year.

The nearest beach is approximately a 20 minute walk downhill and it is easy to hire a taxi back up for around 7 Euros. Although car hire is not essential we would recommend it for transport from Malaga Airport and for holiday shopping and sightseeing. The nearest golf course is just a 20 minute drive by car.

The nearest bar/restaurant is a ten minute walk from the villa. The centre of town is within 30 minutes’ walk with a bus service running from the nearby road every hour. Burriana Beach is a twenty minute walk or five minutes by car. Nearby, and within walking distance are other bars and restaurants, the paddle tennis club and two large supermarkets.

Maro, and the Caves of Nerja are a thirty minutes walk away. Maro is a little town with a few restaurants, cafe and beach - Playa Maro, which is small and secluded. We are also within walking in the National Park. The motorway to other attractions a five minute journey.

A short walk away is the hotel Los Arcos, with its bar and restaurant. Our nearest restaurant is Las Fuentes, which has a good vegetarian selection. El Capistrano Village is a few minutes’ walk away, where there is a restaurant and a small shop. If you want to buy more supplies there are two major supermarkets about ten minutes’ walk away from the villa.

The very picturesque village of Frigiliana is just fifteen minutes’ drive away, and is one of the famous Pueblo Blancos.
