Guestbook comments from the owner

My girlfriend and I stayed in La Cuadra for a week of relaxation and undisturbed bliss. Only 40 minutes from Malgaga airport, La Cuadra is nestled at the top of one of the many rolling hills around Frigiliana and is surrounded by lush trees and plants that offer perfect privacy whilst you can watch the world go by. The property itself has all the necessities you'd expect and more to make the stay extremely homely, like a large bookcase with a variety of books and all the kitchen utilities and utensils you need. There is a great balance between old and new, with rustic tiles throughout and lovely antique furniture, then vibrant touches of colour through the crockery and kitchen equipment. The bedroom is spacious with lots of storage and air conditioning and is lovely and filled with light in the early morning as the sun rises. We both loved sitting outside each morning and evening with dinner where we'd sit and enjoy the views of the rolling hills and sea. We also loved using the outdoor BBQ at the property, something you seldom find on your travels, and enjoyed sunning ourselves in the afternoons on the terrace with its refreshing plunge pool. There's a great Lidl within a 5 minute drive where you can stock up on all the food and drink you need for your stay, including fresh fish, and several local supermarkets on the side streets of old town Frigiliana, or if you prefer a bigger shop, a fantastic supermarket in the shopping mall El Ingenio, about a 20 minute drive away. We thought the best nearby beach is Burriana beach, a 10 minute drive away in Nerja where you can find several great restaurants all with sea views, we would highly recommended AYOs for its amazing paella! It is definitely worth visiting Balcon de Europa in Nerja where you can get lost in the winding side streets full of shops and Tavernas. We would really recommend exploring old town Frigiliana, full of gorgeous cobbled streets and magnificent views. Plenty to see and do around the area if you chose to, such as Aquavelis Water Park, but La Cuadra was a perfect place for us to relax for a day out of the sun.

Given La Molineta is nestled in the mountains, with unrivalled views, access around the village, and up to La Cuadra is quite a climb. That said, there is an alternative path with more gentle slopes through a side gate, the key to which can be found in the kitchen.

A lovely cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Loved the privacy location and high standard of accomodation.

A bit of noise at night from barking dogs and a rooster!!! We got used to it though.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at La Cuadra. It was bigger than we were expecting, really comfortable bed and the kitchen was very well stocked. The gardens are lovely to soak up the sun in or have a spot of lunch and the plunge pool is perfect for a quick cool off. There are quite a few steps to get up to La Cuadra but the daily exercise offset all the wine and tapas we consumed!

Great location, 5 mins drive or 20 mins walk to the beautiful town of Frigiliana where we spent many days exploring, eating and drinking and 15 mins drive from the beaches of Nerja. Loads to see and do including some great walks in the surrounding natural park. We could have happily stayed for another week or even longer.

Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

Ideal couple cottage with a secluded sun terrace and splash pool (watch out for the para glider!) set in the hills. Found it clean and well kitted out and we ate in most evenings. There is a bar that does meals within 5 walk and the village of Frigiliana has many - 25 mins walk or 5 mins in car.

Very easy to find and there is Lidl 10 min drive towards Nerja. The beach is 15 mins drive.

There are a lot of steps leading to the property from the road - 80 plus - worth bearing in mind. And the road winds round the house as it climbs the hill. It would be 5 stars otherwise.

Owner's Response: Thanks Stuart, we're so delighted you enjoyed your stay. Our 85 steps certainly compels us to keep us exercised, given our sedentary home jobs, though when we're feeling less energetic we use our garden gate with a more forgiving meandering slope. As for the road, it always reminds me of a scene out of 'The Italian Job'....It's hypnotic to look at with it's gracious curves through the mountain below us and around us and makes me feel part of something really special.

Wonderful little cottage for two

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Cuadra for one week, going the second week in January for some much needed rest and relaxation. The cottage was everything we thought it would be: comfortable, warm (with the wood burning stove) and well equipped. The English TV was a bonus. The local area was very nice with Frigiliana and it's great little eateries, at the top of the hill and Nerja five minutes by car down on the coast. We visited several other coastal resorts too, all very much enjoyed. Overall, an excellent stay and we very much hope to return in the future. Many thanks.

Estancia perfecta. Mejor de lo esperado

  • 5 of 5

Al que entre a leer las opiniones sobre esta casa, os recomiendo que la reservéis si buscáis lo que nosotros buscábamos, y que allí encontramos: una casa coqueta, bonita, con todo lo necesario para tener un alojamiento cómodo y muy cerca de Frigiliana, pero con intimidad.

La casa tiene una minipiscina estupenda para refrescarse mientras se toma el sol, la cama es comodísima, el baño muy amplio y la cocina tiene casi todo lo necesario para comer en la casa, si así se desea. Se puede aparcar cerca sin problema.

La comunicación con el propietario (Niall) es perfecta. El entorno es de absoluta tranquilidad y rodeado de plantas y árboles, que hace que se tenga una privacidad absoluta.

Tiene aire acondicionado en el dormitorio; y aunque no hace mucha calor, ayuda a pasar las peores horas del mediodía.

Estuvimos una semana en agosto 2017, y os aseguro que la estancia fue perfecta. Mejor de lo que esperábamos.
