Great views

  • 4 of 5

Very nice clean spacious apartment well equipped with hairdryer, Iron, clothes dryer, washing machine (take your own tablets), wonderful views from the large balcony. Nice pool was not busy when we were there, sun loungers in apartment if needed. Apartment is well placed for the old part of Frigiliana exiting from the back entrance to the apartments (follow the steps/path through the garden) best Restaurant we found is in the Square opposite San Antonio Church great fish/steak meals (note back section of the square as it is two separate restaurants, the front one is ok for drinks) Frigilana is a beautiful place to explore, you are 10 mins drive away from Nerja (buses run from Frigiliana) for beaches and more restaurants. The on street parking is a little tricky outside the apartment, but we did always manage to get parked. Thank you to Boz who met us at the apartment, the only thing I would say would be very helpful is if a food welcome pack of essentials ie bread, milk, tea/coffee could be there for your arrival. We had great weather and a great stay. Thank you.

Spacious ,great views,quiet complex

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment with fantastic balcony and spectacular views. Set in quiet garden complex, swimming pool kept immaculately clean and bonus tennis court. Very handy quick access to the village . The description is very accurate. We stayed in this apartment for 8 weeks and could have stayed longer !. Efficient booking and we were very well looked after by the local agents Boz & Polly. Would recommend this apartment to anyone and we do hope to return.

Great apartment, with stunning views.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two weeks with four little children and we had a great vacation. The apartment has lots of space and is very clean. It's got everything you need.

Because of the large balcony you can enjoy the stunning views of sea and mountains.The service is superb, just give a call and someone is there to help you!!

Only one small criticism: the mattress in the main bedroom is (according to us) very hard and caused us a bit of backache.

In spite of that it's a really great apartment that I would definitely reccomend!

wonderful stay in apartment Estrella

  • 5 of 5

Since our last rented property in Frigiliana were not available this time, we contacted Boz and Polly for some suggestions. We ended up in apartment Estrella for nine days, and we were so satisfied. The apartment is nice, spacy and very clean!The terrace is large an well equipped and has sun all day.We did not have much time to rest here during daytime since all the wonderful mountain walks were waiting for us:)But in the late afternoon it was lovely to sit down to enjoy the scenic view.The road is just outside the complex but it is not a problem. In fact it is funny to watch cars and people passing by. It was not busy at night so we always slept very well .The complex is so nice with its wonderful outdoor area., swimming pools and tennis court.We played tennis one afternoon, as always enjoyable!

The apartment also offers free wifi and that is important for us.

We recommend this lovely apartment to everyone!

Beautiful large apartment with great views

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a fantastic location, close to the centre of the old part of the village, and is really spacious with great views across the valley. The apartment has a large private terrace with access from both the master bedroom and the lounge. There is also a second terrace accessed from the other two bedrooms. The layout of the apartment is really good, with the kitchen and lounge having a handy breakfast bar arrangement. Everything in the apartment is stylish and of good quality.

My wife and I enjoyed a week in the apartment in August. We had a great welcome from Boz who was very helpful and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. We love Frigiliana, having had a lovely week there in 2012. However Apartment Estrella made our visit this time extra special. Though the weather was really hot we managed to do some walking in the Rio Chillar gorge and the Rio Hegueron gorge (both highly recommended!) We ate at The Garden, the Mirador and La Taberna on the square (our favourite!). We also enjoyed the pool and the lovely gardens in the apartment complex.

We would love to return to Frigiliana and stay in Apartment Estrella, though maybe next time a bit earlier in the year when it is less hot.
