La Residencia is found in the old part of Frigiliana, a village on top of a hill bordering the National Park with the Mountain ranges of Almijara, Tejeda and Alhama. Frigiliana is one of the best preserved Moorish villages of Andalusia. All houses in the village are whitewashed and every year the approximately 2,200 residents of Frigiliana are obliged to repaint their house white . It is a wonderful contrast to the red, slate roofs and the beautiful colors of the doors On the ground and on the walls are everywhere flower pots with fragrant lavender and jasmine. Frigiliana was voted several times the prettiest village in Andalusia by the Spanish Tourism Authority and I will not challenge that. Frigiliana is easy accessible and only a 5 minutes drive to the popular seaside town of Nerja. It is a mountain village and the steps/footpaths may have slopes which can be difficult for people who have walking problems-
The road with steps, opposite the Frigiliana Sports Centre, to the apartment is not suitable for the disabled or the elderly who have problems with stairs as it would be a bit of a physical exercise, though it is a short distance.
