Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Axarquia (Costa del Sol) - 28 San Francisco

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. Recently fitted 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. The floors were also retiled in 2011. Wi-Fi broadband is available and air conditioning / heating units have been installed in each room at no extra cost. A 200 yard 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 new, 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, was recently voted the most beautiful mountain village in Spain). Further afield are the lakes and countryside around Vinuela (35 mins), the amazing Alhambra Palace at Granada (90 mins), the ski resort at Sierra Navada (under two hours away via the same excellent Granada road), the uniquely British duty free port of Gibraltar (two hours), and even Seville and Cordoba (about 3 hours). For those who wish to sample the delights of Torremolinos and Benelmadena (but then return to sanity!), these resorts are less than 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 six 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 Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

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 terrace and the fact that we overlooked a large open garden space! When we saw the views it hardly mattered what the inside was like!

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!

Perfect property with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

This is a really well appointed property; it has everything you can think of for your stay in Nerja.

From the start of the process the communication from Anne & Ted has great and always very prompt. The location is perfect with fantastic view from the balcony with the sun all day long. We really enjoyed eating our breakfast outside in the early morning sun. The property was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. The simple things like tea towels and cloths being already present meant that you did not need to go out and buy items just for the week the area feels very safe and is really quiet. The Wi-Fi is great for keeping in touch.

The communal pool is two minutes’ walk and was very clean and always manned by the lifeguards.

There is a bus stop within two minutes’ walk that will take you into town every half hour but for complete independence i would recommend a car. The town centre is less than 5 minutes’ drive.

In terms of value for money i can recommend this property highly enough and the photo's do not do it justice. The only hesitation i had about giving it 5 stars was that it may make the property more popular and decrease the chances of us getting the property the next time we return to the area.

We will be back.

Perfect place for spanish holiday, we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Ann and Ted's place is beautiful, comfortable, clean and very well equipped. Me and my husband and our son enjoyed every minute of our stay. The holiday village is absolutely beautiful with green grass and blossoming plants. The pool area is very nice as well. Other guests were mainly middle age, senior or families with children, so it was peaceful and secure. The view from the house over Nerja to the sea is stunning, and it was nice that there are mountains on the otherside of Capistrano Village. Our main problem was that the place is so nice that we had to "force" ourselves to leave the place from time to time in order to see some Nerja and surrounding areas :-) The beaches, especially one nearby the Balcon de Europa are nice, all of them quite unique, the Nerja Cave is absolutely spectacular. We recommend visiting Nerja Donkey Sanctuary as well. We would advice to rent a car from airport. There's a free public parking are in the Nerja town with easy access to shops, beaches and restaurants. There are several good super markets, only few minutes drive away by car. We arrived late at night and had some difficulties in finding Capistrano Village in the dark.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most wonderful holiday at Anne & Ted's villa in Nerja. The location is perfect as San Juan de Capistrano is set a little away from the main town meaning that you benefit from the convenience of being close to town but far enough away to ensure that it is lovely and peaceful! There is a regular bus going into town, but we hired a car and found it easy to get around and to find parking wherever we went. It also allowed us to explore the surrounding area and beaches. Anne & Ted have put together an excellent resource file with lots of information about the area and the best places to go - it came in really handy. The villa is also incredibly well furnished with everything you need making it really feel like home away from home.

We had an incredible time and would definitely love to return!!

ps. the property also has considerably fewer stairs to climb to access it than other properties in the area and so was ideal for my mom who had some mobility issues after a recent fall.

28, San Francisco. A wonderful position.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the above apartment last November. Everything was just as promised from the advert. Though you have be there to really experience the view and peaceful atmosphere from the terrace. Wonderful. It was clean, well equipped and we would certainly recommend it.

The Nerja area has lots to offer and we certainly found some excellent restaurants.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have used owners direct before but found the owners of this property the most friendly and helpful we have come across, providing lots of information. The property itself felt like home from home, was clean and tidy with beautiful views. One of the best family holidays we have had for a long time, both the property and area.

Car: recommended

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.

THE MOTORWAY SHOWN BEHIND THE PROPERTY IN THE ADJACENT MAP CANNOT BE SEEN OR HEARD FROM THE APARTMENT.

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