About the property

This is a modern, comfortable, 2 bedroom apartment (89m2), new on market

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.

La Residencia is a modern, comfortable, 2 bedroom apartment (89m2), and since August 2017 on the market.

La Residencia has at ground level the combined lounge/dining room with bamboo seating, 40" flat screen tv (Spanish and BBC tv channels) and WiFi.

It has open American kitchen with 4 plate electric stove and oven, fridge, microwave, and toaster. All standard cutlery provided

The ground level has a separate toilet


The apartment does not get the the full sun and is generally not very hot. The lounge and both bedrooms have ceiling fans, as well mosquito mash in front of the double glazed windows.

On 1st floor the master bedroom, 2nd bedroom and the bathroom

The bathroom has a bathtub + overhead shower, a toilet, a washing basin and the washing machine .

In the Master Bedroom you find 1 double bed, a large wardrobe and 3 chests of drawers. The bedroom is light and airy with 2 lovely Juliet balconies

Plenty of space for a cot , available on request.

The 2nd bedroom has a double bed, a single bed, a sizable wardrobe and chests of drawers

The guests of La Residencia have access to the superb sized community swimming pool with large lawn and resting chairs (closed October till April 1).

La Residencia is a few steps from the Jardin Botanico (botanical garden) and short walk to the popular the historic centre , where you can explore the many delicatessens and artisan craft shops , wide choice of restaurants and bars, and will most likely taste a variety of delicious tapas.

The apartment is close to the Frigiliana Sports Centre, where sportive guests can do their workouts in the Gym (Fees for the Gym are: 1 day 3 €, 1 week 10 €, 2 weeks 15 €, 1 month

About Cornelis Meijer

Dear Guests,

Welcome in The Residence

I am Cornelis Meijer, your host, a Dutch national, but I reside in Spain since January 2016. My new venture is to accommodate tourists in an apartment which was bought in Frigiliana.

I will not describe the fact, in different words, that Frigiliana is one of the most beautiful villages in Spain as you can find it anywhere on the web. I just like to refer you to Absolute Axarquia on the web, where you can also find Frigiliana and a lot of detailed information about the beautiful Axarquia region

Before Spain I lived in Zimbabwe (Southern Africa). My work was in development cooperation for 3 years in Suriname (South America), 3 years Zambia and following 23 years in Zimbabwe. Living in these countries, and specifically Zimbabwe, has taught me that being open minded, appreciating and respecting cultural differences, is essential for good living and work relationships in any country.

Travelling is my hobby and thanks to hosts in countries like Spain, Costa Rica, Brazil, Indonesia and Malawi I can even more appreciate similarities in open minded friendly people, as well that cultural and environmental differences can give more flavour to life. Fine food in variety can be irresistible, fantastic music can touch your soul, while the dance may catch you entirely.

I love Spain for it's people, the beautiful diversity of the country and its culture. I hope to stay here for as long as I can walk where my heart is.

To my guest I may say:

- A donde el corazon se inclina, el pie camina -

- Home is, where the heart is -

Friendly greetings / Saludos cordiales

Fabulous apartment in the beautiful village of Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Cornelius, we were made to feel very welcome. The apartment was clean and spacious and in a great location, and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The swimming pool was lovely, just a few minutes walk away with a great setting and we always managed to get sunbeds at any time of day despite it being the school holidays!! There were some really good restaurants within the village, the pizzeria in particular was a big hit with the kids and so cheap!! We thoroughly recommend the apartment and Frigiliana, we hope to return again very soon.

Storybook chapter

  • 4 of 5

Frigiliana is a magical place. Our apartment was clean and centrally located. Cornelis was a great host and a good communicator. If you come in the winter, the apartment will be cold. That will cost you extra to run the heater and you will need it. Still, worth it.
