About the property

2 Bedroom (one double, one twin), 1 bathroom. Sleeps 4

Our spacious and well equipped apartment is approached via a series of about 15 gently rising steps spread over 50 metres through well maintained gardens. A private gate leads into our tiled patio garden and up to the very large south facing terrace with patio furniture and spectacular views across the town to the Mediterranean beyond. White aluminium French doors open onto the terrace from both bedrooms and the lounge/dining room. Our kitchen and bathroom have been modernised and the kitchen boasts a full size oven and ceramic hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave oven. Both bedrooms were recently refurbished and new internal doors were fitted throughout. Wi-Fi broadband is included in the rental as is the air conditioning / heating that was installed in each room in 2017. A less than 150 metre walk away is the very large communal pool (open Easter to October) with separate children’s' pool and play area,. There are poolside bars and restaurants, a very useful Supermarket and a regular and very reliable bus service into town.

Local information: Tourism has not spoiled the charm of Nerja - local restrictions prohibiting many of the excesses found elsewhere. The pedestrianized town centre has numerous restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. The 'Balcon de Europa' provides a palm fringed focus to the town, jutting out into the sea and providing an ideal stage for the excellent street entertainers that are licensed to perform there: an ideal place to join the locals on their evening stroll! Explore this pleasant town by horse drawn carriage, or walk the narrow streets of white washed houses and shop in a wide variety of good quality shops.

Local Attractions: Two miles away, the famous Nerja caves are situated close to a magnificent working aqueduct just outside the tiny seaside village of Maro. Amongst the caves' attractions is the world's largest stalactite. In addition to Nerja's beaches, there are numerous secluded beaches stretching eastwards along the coast past the tranquil Marina del Este towards Almunecar - an historic town 15 minutes away by car, with castle, Roman ruins - and a water park! There is another water park in Velez-Malaga - also about 15 minutes by car (westwards) from Nerja and adjacent to the nearest golf course (Baviera) and directly opposite a modern and vibrant, air conditioned, 125 shop mall, and multi-screen cinema (English language films shown).

Attractions further afield: Nearby are the Moorish hillside villages of Competa and Frigliana (the latter, only 4 miles away, has been voted the most beautiful mountain village in Spain in the past). Further afield are the lakes and countryside around Vinuela (30 mins), the amazing Alhambra Palace at Granada (75 mins), the ski resort at Sierra Navada (well under two hours away via the same excellent Granada road), the uniquely British duty free port of Gibraltar (just over two hours away - mainly by motorway), and even Seville and Cordoba (each about 3 hours away). For those who wish to sample the delights of Torremolinos and Benelmadena (but then return to sanity!), these resorts are each about an hour away.

About Ted or Anne Thibaut

We are a retired couple in our early 70s. We live in the UK in the vibrant seaside City of Brighton. We have three children and seven grandchildren. We have strong family links with both Spain and Gibraltar

Ted or Anne Thibaut purchased this villa in 2000

Why Ted or Anne Thibaut chose Nerja

Having holidayed in Nerja in the mid 1990s we fell in love with the town as an attractive family holiday centre. Once we had decided to buy a second home Nerja seemed the obvious place to come. We viewed a number of properties in and around Nerja and on San Juan - but what made this one stand out were the stunning views from the spacious terrace and the fact that we overlooked a large open - and well kept! - garden area! When we saw the views it hardly mattered what the inside was like! And whereas we have made numerous improvements to the property over the years the view has remained the same - stunning!

What makes this villa unique

Apart from the wonderful views we fell in love with the extensive terracing and the fact - possibly unique on San Juan - that both bedrooms and the lounge had French windows that opened directly onto the terrace.

The sun trap of a garden was just an added bonus that adds colour and allows us - and our guests! - to potter.

Fantastic apartment, home from home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, with all you would need including washing machine, dishwasher and air con which was a blessing. The little touches such as books and CDs is a lovely touch. I would highly recommend. Talking to other people staying at the complex said that we were lucky to get accommodation as most people return year on year. The on site pool was a bonus and the views were great. We had a hire car which we found great as the main town area was quite a trek in the heat. The caves are a must but arrive early as by early afternoon you may have to wait several hours before you are allowed in. We went to the salt water park which was also a good day out. Plenty of supermarkets to choose from but our favourite was the supersol.

Great apartment inside & out

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful & Spacious, two great double bedrooms with storage and room for a large travel cot. Comfy beds & aircon in each room. Both rooms have double doors opening on to a large balvony. Modern bathroom (with shower) and kitchen which was fully equipped (washing machine, dishwasher, oven, hob & fridge freezer). Loads of facilities to cook in. Anne & Ted kindly left food & a bit of drink in & they will always offer to leave food over when possible if you want. Great lounge area with loads of channels. The views from the balvony are spectacular, beautiful, calm & peaceful at night with an open green area in front. Upper balcony & lower small garden area, ideal Sun trap. Lots of room for our daughter to play. Communal pool area was perfect, very clean.

Anne & Ted made the whole booking process easy & made us feel very welcomed to their apartment.

We couldn't say anything negative if we tried and we are currently booking to return.

This was based on 4 adults and a toddler staying there.

Thanks again Anne & Ted

A lovely traditonal Andalusian Style villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is really lovely decorated, clean and bright. The villa is spacious and is probably one of the largest there. The air conditioning and Wi-fi was an added bonus for us as most places in Capistrano do not have either or both. The double and twin bedrooms are spacious with double doors leading onto the balcony. There is a gorgeous view of the sea from the balcony which itself is surrounded with lovely flowers and a large tree that provides shade. The kitchen has a washing machine and microwave and is easily supplied to accommodate cooking in.

We stayed here in Summer 2016 with my teenage son but have been going to Juan Capistrano since 1998 when we had four small children to take on holiday. Most times we hire a car but a taxi can be pre-booked and costs (2015) between 60 and 70 euro depending on how many there are travelling. The peace and quiet combined with the overall beautifully designed Andalucian style villas, surrounded by flowering bougainvilea provide a picturesque area of garden walkways for all ages. However it can be restrictive for the very infirm. This villa itself has a private garden with sun loungers, that due to its design offers privacy from the other villas.

The pool and the supermarket is only 200 yards away. There is an English run very friendly and welcoming restaurant beside the pool with other restaurants close by. A larger supermarket called Supersol about 20/25 mins walk away to the entrance of Capistrano Village offers a delivery service for a small fee. Mercadona also deliver and an order can be placed on line at www.mercadona.es, a delivery time within a two hour time frame will be provided. A market is held every Tuesday and is 10/15 mins walk, towards Nerja centre while a regular bus service opposite the pool runs until 1050pm in the Summer. A taxi is between 6 and 8 euro, and takes about 7-10mins into the centre of Nerja. The staff in the Supermarket are very helpful and will ring for a taxi, however most taxi drivers have good English if you do not have Spanish.

We have found Ted and Ann very helpful and obliging when booking our stay here, left all the more easy through the use of e-mails and bank transfer of monies. We have since re-booked to return this Summer which we are looking forward to.

A lovely villa - in a gorgeous place - with lovely weather, what else?

Built in the style of a Moorish mountain village San Juan de Capistrano is a quiet urbanisation nestling serenely above the town of Nerja, in the foothills of the Almijara mountains - yet less than a mile away from the town centre and main beaches. An easy 45 minute drive eastwards from Malage airport via a lightly used motorway, Nerja retains its essentially Spanish identity whilst boasting the best climate in Europe.


Golf: Baviera Golf course is approx 10miles along the motorway towards Malaga.
