About Boz and Polly
Hi, We are Boz and Polly from England we moved to Frigiliana pretty much by chance in 2002, and never looked back. Boz had spent 23 Years in the Royal Navy, Polly was a Nurse and later Hospital Administrator. We live in our Country Finca ( Casa Nirvana) just outside Frigiliana where our neighbours are 1,000 plus goats and their owners Julio and Lourdes, we have become fully integrated with and adopted into the local community. We make Olive Oil from our own Olive Trees and Moscatel Wine from our vines. Boz loves all the local adventure sports like Mountain Biking, Skiing, Rafting, Scuba Diving, Caving, Climbing Etc But his big passion is Canyoning where competes at Spanish National level and been Spanish Champion three times. Pollys loves are, her Home, her Animals, ( Izzy and Moli our cats and our Dog Sabrah) - Her Vegetable Plots and Gardens - Helping out at the goat corral, Milking the adults and Delivering the Goregeous baby kids - Aerobics and Spinning Classes at the local Gym and when time permits Joining Boz for a hike in the Hills. We feel very privelidged to live in such a paradise and the bonus is that we are on hand to assist with any problems you may have during your holiday and are able to offer lots of help and advice to ensure you make the most of your time in Frigiliana and the region. This also allows us to provide a superior and much more personal service to all our guests than larger travel agents can. So that any problems you may have will be dealt with, by us personally and immediately. We take great pride in the fact that you entrust us with such a precious commodity as your holiday, and it is our personal goal to ensure that every possible comfort and amenity is provided during your stay. We lived in the apartment for our first three months in Spain and have added many personal touches and home comforts to it, so that is truly a home from home.
Boz and Polly purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Boz and Polly chose Frigiliana
It was more of a case of Frigiliana and our Apartment choosing us rather than the other way round. We came to Frigiliana in 2002 to investigate buying a holiday home that we could use ourselves and also rent out to cover expenses. We were adamant that it was just a scouting trip and we made a verbal pact not to buy. BUT Fate took over - we bought the Apartment on Saturday 20 July, 2002.Then just two days later on Monday 22 the company Boz worked for went into liquidation. That evening after a glass of wine and doing some rudimentary life calculations we decided "What the Heck" lets go live in Frigiliana. Three months later we had sold up lock stock and barrel cashed in all our investments and were on our way. And as they say "The Rest is History" 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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.

Beautiful apartment, stunning location, helpful and at tentative landlord
Best experience you could ask for. This place has to be the best. Well done Boz and Polly!!
Well equipped, cosy and very clean.
We have visited the Nerja/Frigiliana area many times over the past few years and this is the best equipped, cleanest and cosiest apartment we have ever rented. Very quiet, with superb views we enjoyed every moment we were there.
A perfect playce to stay
I found the apartment right away (which does not happen to me very often), parked the car right in front and was welcomed by Boz. He had already filled the fridge with everything one might need to eat and drink for the first few days. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering guests, with coffee, tea, sugar, spices, oil, vinegar - you name it, everything is there ready to be used.
And there is a comfortable heating system that makes the apartment warm and comfortable on chilly winter evenings.
If you like to go hiking, there are plenty of paths around Frigiliana and you can find lots of information in the apartment (especially in one hiking guide that gives you a short précis of each walk on pages 4 to 6). The internet, of course, is an even better source of information; i recommend wikiloc.
In conclusion: I had a bloody good time and I am sure to come back.

Boz and Polly
We had a relaxing stay, the views are fantastic, Frigiliana very pretty the apartment has everything you would find at your own home, the owners very helpful. The only small gripe would be the parking it’s a bit of a lottery at times, but don’t let that put you off.
I would like to thank Mr Bradbury, for his comments. Unfortunately during his stay there was some work being done in the parking garage of another quite large apartment complex just down the street, which required that the garage was temporarily closed, hence there was a large rise in demand for adjacent parking in an area where parking is not normally a problem.
