About the property
- Villa1291 sq. ft.
- Separate WC's1
- Minimum Stay1 - 7 nights
2 bedrooms, 1bath + cloakroom, aircon, private garden + terrace, sleeps 5
This small private development is set in landscaped gardens, with a beautiful shared pool set in a lawn area, ideal for adults and youngsters alike. The villa is family-owned, and furnished and maintained to higher standards than more “commercially run” properties.
The old town of Nerja, with a fantastic selection of shops, restaurants, bars, and a couple of discos, is close by. The sandy Burriana beach is within walking distance and is well provided with beach bars and restaurants, while other smaller beaches and coves can be found along the shoreline.
Supermarkets, car hire, bus stops and taxi services are all within walking distance.
When you have had enough of sunbathing, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the beach, and sampling the bars and restaurants there is still plenty do in and around Nerja.
Water-sports of all sorts are available - get the details from the tourist office.
Golf - 7 great golf courses are within an hours drive
A must-see are the caves! Some of the most spectacular in Spain, and situated just outside Nerja they are famous for their dramatic underground views and rock formations. Several times a year concerts are held underground, with world famous performers
A pretty village up in the mountains is well worth the 15 minute drive, for the view, and a wide range of interesting shops hidden down narrow streets
The famous Alhambra palace is about a 90 minute drive through the mountains and well worth the trip (but be sure to book a ticket before you go)
The area is a paradise for Walkers and nature lovers - the Sierra Alhambra mountains behind the villa are a National Park with great walks, views and wildlife.

Tranquil jardine de nerja
Just returned from a fantastic stay at jardine de nerja with my wife, mother in law and two young children, the villa was spotless and equipped with anything we needed, the swimming pool area was spotless and most days we had the pool to ourselves, kids pool perfect for the children. Any interaction with Paul was quick and easy and gave us peace of mind. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely villa and area. There is a good bus service close by however it is a very hilly area so a car would be recommended.
We'll be back again next year!
This is our sixth year visiting Nerja, with the last 3 years visiting the Chapmans villa, 2 of them with kids in two. From our latest visit it certainly won’t be our last. The villa is set in a beautifully landscaped private garden complex with pool and is just over a mile from the town centre.
Each time we have visited we are always pleasantly surprised to find something new. The furniture has been updated as well as the addition of air con and heating units and a new bathroom suite. A roof terrace provides a perfect spot to sunbathe and looks out over the sea.
The kids loved their time in the villa as much as we did, now calling it their ‘holiday home’. A cot was provided for our youngest as well as a stair gate which was handy. There was also kids tableware which saved us worrying so much about having to replace any of the good stuff! It was worth checking out all the cupboards as we found a selection of beach toys which saved us having to buy some for the two weeks we were there.
I would recommend anyone to take a walk from the villa down to the supermarket. It’s just a 10 minute walk, but you’ll travel downhill through a maze of alleyways with many different native plants and trees that appear to be in full bloom whatever time of year we come. Similarly, a walk up hill provides you with excellent vistas across the town of Nerja and the coast. If you’re a keen walker, the Nerja Caves are a good walk out of town and the town itself is a pleasant walk away. Burriana Beach was our favourite, especially the Paella at Ayo’s
Thanks go out to the Chapmans who have always been very accommodating
Really nice town house on quiet, private gated urbanisation.
The house is a 10 minute walk to a large supermarket, bars and restaurants. House was well presented with most essentials. We stayed for four weeks and experienced one of the wettest March's for some time a spare set of sheets would be useful as drying the one set was problematic, our only reason for not awarding 5 stars.
Thank you for the review. A shame about the weather - apparently the wettest March for decades, but I am glad that you still enjoyed your stay despite the rain.
Sorry about the spare sheets - a pity you didn't mention it as we do keep spares on site so could have supplied them to you.
Property in NERJA
Lovely property, we noted a coupled of disgruntled opinions on the internet from some which I felt was niff naff and trivia. Nice accommodation, everything you could need was there, we had a lovely stay, would highly recommend it.
Well positioned townhouse.
Good points. Nice position with easy walking distance to shops ,beach and countryside.
Poor points, House could do with a bit of TLC
A pair of scissors in the kitchen would be handy and some egg cups. Bath towels.
If you like to wrap yourself in a towel after your shower you need to have a 24inch waist.
No water in the swimming pool. Locks and sliding wardrobe doors could do with a squirt of WD40. Some of the units and walls could do with a wipe .
Besides those few little points we had great weather and a great holiday ,would definitely like to visit the area again.
Thank you for your review and your kind remarks when you returned the keys. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Jardines de Nerja. We will be there ourselves in January to install a new bathroom, and will take the opportunity to get some scissors and egg cups, and touch up the suitcase scuffs on the stairs wall.
Not a ‘Luxury’ villa by any means
My friend and I recently stayed at this villa for 1 week. We are mature adults. Whilst this terraced villa is set in a pleasant spot there are no grounds or gardens to walk around and the pool was closed. It is necessary to drive through the sprawling El Capistrano development to reach the villa complex. However there were many things wrong with the villa:
It needed a new bathroom, the old enamel bath was stained and chipped and had a plastic shower curtain. The cheap metal shower attachment was set too high up on the wall and it was necessary to hold it by hand to use it to shower with. If the bidet was removed the bathroom could be reconfigured to fit a modern shower cubicle.
The old wooden towel rail in the cloakroom kept falling off
The old DVD player didn’t work
The front bedroom door handle was loose
There was no full length mirror in the whole villa
No scissors in kitchen drawer, no baking dish, just a few old aluminium tin trays. The oven hadn’t been cleaned before our arrival.
No nice mugs for tea, just heavy dark blue stoneware mugs
Pillows were old, flat and stained yellow
The lounge, whilst potentially spacious, had 2 large, dark purple, grubby leather settess which closed the room in. The TV was too small for the room.
There were nice sea views from the front bedroom balcony and from the roof terrace if you stood up. It had a high wall around it. The patio got the sun on it but there were no views because of the large amount of overgrown shrubbery. Apparently the owner prefers this! The ‘garden’ space wasn’t useable because it was so small and dark.
This villa was not as described and I am very angry at the amount I was charged for sub standard accommodation.
Dear Sally B.
Thank you for your review. We love our holiday home and are proud that, for the last 14 years, more than 95% of reviews have been 4* or 5* .
We naturally want guests to enjoy their stay so we take anything less than that very seriously, and take action where we can.
You mentioned a couple of things that we will attend to – e.g. we will buy some kitchen scissors, and fix the loose towel rail and door handle. We will also check the pillows – but we did this in October when we renewed the bedding and they were fine.
A number of your other points however are factually inaccurate, (e.g. there are beautiful gardens that you can wander around as shown in the photographs, and both bedrooms and the bathroom and toilet have mirrors).
We stay in Nerja some 10 – 12 weeks each year so the kitchen is well supplied with utensils and good quality crockery – I am sorry if it was not to your taste
Some of your other ‘issues’ are actually very clear on the website. Either from the pictures (that were all taken in 2017) e.g. the purple leather sofas and patio garden, and / or the detailed descriptions.
Unfortunately it seems that Jardines de Nerja was not for you – I hope you have better luck with your next holiday

Nerja has been described as the most attractive resort on the Costa del Sol,with a variety of beaches, spectacular mountain ranges coming right down to the coast, and a local planning policy that has avoided a glut of high-rise buildings mean that Nerja has an attraction to everyone.
