The older part is a mass of narrow flower laden cobbled streets winding up the hillside with wonderful views over orchards and the coast to the South and Spectacular views of the National Park North and East across the magnificent Higueron Gorge. With something for everyone Frigiliana is a paradise. For walkers and mountain bikers with enchanting walks and rides for all abilities starting right in the village. For historians and culturalists the Moorish past remains visible today.

We fell in love with Our Property in Frigiliana, in southern Spain for so many reasons, it just seemed to have everything we could have ever dreamed of. We had always loved the outdoors, so with the hills of the Sierra Tejeda and the Almijada Natural Park on our doorstep, the Mediterranea Sea ten minutes away and the Sierra Nevada ski resort just 90 minutes away we could now play to our heart’s content. After our previous hectic existence, the moderate pace of life, lack of road rage, low crime levels, lack of materialism and the fact that the Spanish have maintained family life and values, was a true joy to become part of.
Just hanging out here in Frigiliana there is no better way to get a feel for the life and soul of Rural Spain - Than to take an evening ‘paseo’ (wander) through the village. Join in with the locals as they parade through the narrow alleys and winding lanes, often with four generations of the same family in tow. Great grandparents with their walking sticks down to babies in pushchairs, they all stop to chat to their lifelong neighbours and friends
A visit to Frigiliana would certainly not be complete without sampling some of the local delicacies. The Spanish make some really delicious food and very quaffable drinks. There’s the locally produced Frigiliana wine, made of the moscatell grapes that are harvested in August, taken to the local press in the village and then transferred to huge barrels where the juice is left to ferment for three months or more with no additives whatsoever. Another favourite is the locally produced cane honey, still made in the original factory in the village. For the carnivore, a plate of ‘Choto’ (goat) in garlic and almond sauce is an absoute must.
The Axarquia region of the Costa del Sol plays host to a vast array of adrenalin fuelled adventure sports. There’s canyoning, a relatively new sport to Spain, but also parascending, skydiving, climbing a ‘via ferrata’ and kayaking. There are also dozens of caves in the area, including the world famouse Nerja Caves, that take the visitor to a whole new subterranean world with immense galleries, wierd and wonderful rock formations, and prehistoric cave paintings proven to be around 20,000 years old.

We had a friendly welcome from the owners of this holiday home who told us everything we needed to know about the apartment and the area. The apartment is traditionally Spanish with plenty of space and light, perfect for two couples, a family or a group of friends. We woke up to a beautiful view of the mountains from the master bedroom and were able to bask in the sun on private roof terrace during the days.
Frigiliana is one of the most beautiful villages we have ever been to with fantastic restaurants. We highly recommend this stay.
Martha and Lewis.

Wir hatten einen perfekten Urlaub und können die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen. Polly und Boz sind sehr nette und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Vielen Dank!
Boz met us at the apartment with a welcome package, and provided us with all the information we needed and were available if anything came up during our stay. The apartment has great views and the private roof top terrace was the icing on the cake. Frigiliana is a beautiful village with plenty of great bars and restaurants, and we were lucky enough to see an amazing equestrian event in the village square. If you want even more choice Nerja is just a short drive down the hill with great beaches, restaurants etc and the beautiful Balcon de Europa. The location is great for access to other towns such as Malaga (definitely spend some time there!) and Granada (the amazing Alhambra) for day trips. All in all we were thrilled with our choice to stay at Boz and Polly's apartment.
Many thanks to Boz and Polly for the nice holidays! There was a welcome package, when we arrived- beer, wine, butter, bread, cheddar, eggs, ham...the appartement was clean and both are very friendly persons. The roof terrace has really a fantastic view. Best beach was "El Playazo"...not many people and big parking place! Frigiliana and Nerja are really lovely places to stay. The only thing was the problem to find a parking space, because of high season. But Boz was so nice to ask a neighbour, who didn't use her garage at this time. So, if you have a problem, ask Boz and Polly...they will help you immediatly! Thank you very much!!!
Loved Frigiliana and the surrounding area, very picturesque and loads to do, particularly enjoyed kayaking in the sea and walking up the 2 nearby river beds. Also of course just great for sunbathing, relaxing and watching the world go by or reading. Locals friendly and restaurants very good. Boz and Polly very hospitable and helpful with providing information. Apartment very comfortable, well equipped and clean. Providing beach towels and a cool bag made packing and picnics easy and a delight to have welcome wine and snacks. Would thoroughly recommend and would love to go again maybe trying a different season next time.
