A wooded path of about 100 metres wends across the hillside to quiet area shaded by a tall pine tree with rustic stone seating and wrought iron table which is an ideal spot to cool down and write the postcards in peace or sit with your favourite book out of the heat.

If you click on the link below ( or cut and paste it into your web browser ) you can see the feature including a short video of the Fiesta we had during the Ikea Photo Shoot.


(The IKEA media team discovered Fuente Santa via this Homeaway Holiday Rentals website)

The local area: Frigiliana is a charming Andalucian village Known as the Pearl of Axarquia whose Moorish architecture dates back 5000 years, nestled into the foothills of the Almijara Mountains at the edge of the Sierra Tejada National Park. The older part is a mass of narrow flower laden cobbled streets winding up the hillside with wonderful views over orchards and the coast to the South and Spectacular views of the National Park North and East across the magnificent Higueron Gorge. With something for everyone Frigiliana is a paradise. For walkers and mountain bikers with enchanting walks and rides for all abilities starting right in the village. For historians and cultural the Moorish past remains visible today. For the beach lover Nerja is a busy seaside town five minutes drive away, set amidst cliffs overlooking rocky coves with many fine beaches and all the usual facilities of a Mediterranean holiday resort, while retaining the qualities of a typical Spanish small town.

Day trips and a bit further afield : Within a short drive are several whitewashed mountain villages each with their own charm and many like Competa and Algaborro are on the famous “Ruta de Vino” (wine route) The awe inspiring Nerja Caves, are a fascinating, network of cathedral like underground caverns with the World's biggest stalactites. Maro,is a picturesque village with panoramic views across the sea and a small secluded beach. A little further along the coast are La Herradura and Almunecar, while further afield is the historic city of Grenada with its famous Alhambra Palace (pre-booking advised). Mijas, Antequara El Torcal National Park, Marbella, Seville, Gibraltar, Ronda, Cordoba, and other famous Costa del Sol resorts are all accessible for day trips.

Like coming home

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying here and for us it has only grown in our favour. It was so lovely to see all the plants maturing around the villa and of course the familiar stunning views. Everything inside the villa is immaculately maintained and pleased to see standards never slip with Jose and Carmen who obviously care deeply about their property and I love Carmen's design flare which enhances the whole experience of relaxing around the villa. Once again a brilliant stay here and we will definitely be coming back. Clare, Nigel, Ewan age 11, Lucas age 8

Fantastic villa, as close as you can be to perfect

  • 5 of 5

The photo's just cannot do this villa justice, it is absolutely beautiful and certainly up there as one of the best places that we have ever rented. The only thing missing was a pizza cutter in the kitchen !!! We'd thoroughly recommend, easy to book, Boz, Polly and Jose are so easy to deal with, all in all one of the best holidays we've had.

Beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb villa, one of the best we have ever rented. It has views down to the sea and is close enough to walk into Frigiliana for an evening meal. The villa was spotless and well presented with a good attention to the finer details which lesser properties often overlook. The hosts were extremely helpful advising us about local amenities and places to visit. We have already recommended this property to friends and it is certainly one we would return to ourselves.

Perfect villa, beatiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, very peaceful, fabulous views and attractively furnished. Clean and tidy, well equipped with a lovely pool and outside spaces. Jose, Boz and Polly were very helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed a trip to the Alhambra , which was easily reached in just over an hour, visiting local villages and eating out at some of the local restaurants. A very enjoyable holiday, highly recommended.

This is our second visit to 'Fuente Santa' and I'm sure won't be the last. It was just as impressive as our first visit.

As always the reservation process through Boz & Polly was as organized and straight forward as usual, keeping us updated with any relevant information.

On arrival we were met by the owners Jose and Carmen and made to feel immediately at home, thank you very much for the fruit and wine. As before the villa was immaculately presented and spotlessly clean with lots of little touches to make the start of our holiday so seamless.

The kitchen is very well equipped, the lounge area very comfortable both with amazing views of the mountains down to the sea and the wrap around terrace has lovely dining furniture and separate relaxed seating areas with loads of soft furnishings, lanterns and candles. There is also another little seating area to the rear of the villa which is approached down a beautiful graveled pathway, adorned with olive trees, grape vines and roses a fabulous place for a quiet read or early evening cocktails!

The BBQ and pool area, again fantastic and well equipped.

Jose visited regularly to maintain the pool and gardens and through his broken English always managed an entertaining conversation.

We walked into Frigiliana which took us about 25 minutes, there are too many little bars and restaurants to mention but definitely something for all tastes. The closest bar from the villa is 'El Cerro' which is well worth a visit about 8-10 minutes walk further on just around the bend in the road, the Wolf Fish, Lamb and country potatoes are a must!!

Once again thank you for another fabulous holiday.

Excellent holiday-time!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to spend family-holiday in Spain. And we are very happy as our first experience was so positive one! We liked it all: the villa was exactly like in the photos (even better!), well maintained, it has all what is mentioned in villa introduction part, the pool was great size and warm for Nordic people like us even in April, villa located close to beautiful village Frigiliana (ca 15-20 min walk to the village, back ca 30 min). Boz and Polly were great managers being very helpful, accommodating our needs and giving a good advise. Thank you a million! Jose (owner) was one very warm person, caring a lot about his property and making sure his guest will enjoy their stay. Gracias por todo! We truly enjoyed every single day of our 2-weeks holiday, warmth of Spanish people, good weather and food (plenty of places nearby in Frigiliana to eat!). We will be back again!
