Sleeping between 4 and 8 people, this pretty white painted villa has its own terraces and enclosed private lawn garden with shrubs and fruit trees. The garden is ideal for babies and small kids who need some area shaded by the olive tree to play in, or for adults who merely want to read and snooze in the quiet. With the mountains behind and views to the sea at nearby Nerja, this is an idyllic spot.
The villa is ideal for larger groups, or for 2 families, who want to be together. The 2 apartments allow you to be together when you want to be, or separate when you need to be. Or each apartment can be rented by couples or families for an intimate, relaxing holiday.
The villa is set in the small multi-national community of San Juan de Capistrano. This is a perfect location - 2 mins walk from the superb pool complex which is surrounded by lawns and cafes, bars and a shop - near enough to get to easily but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
How can I choose between the 2 Apartments? Both have similar accommodation: one twin and one double bedroom, a living/dining area and a fully fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, etc. Both apartments have free Wifi.
The differences are:
The upper apartment has a large patio with a spiral staircase leading to a roof terrace. Inside, it has a completely newly-installed kitchen with electric cooker and washing machine, and a newly-installed bathroom with a shower (but no bath).
The lower has a smaller terrace, but it does lead to a little private garden with grass and shady-trees. In the garden annex there is a washing machine. The kitchen has a newly-fitted halogen hob and a newly-installed oven, plus it has a combination microwave. The bathroom has a bath and an overhead shower.
The apartments each have 3 large floor-standing fans for the summer, and 3 oil-filled electric heaters for the winter.
The villa is ideal for large families or groups of friends, or for 2 families who want to holiday together!
Beach and Pool Complex.: Nerja has about 16km of beaches, all of which are easily accessible. The nearest beach, and in our opinion the best, is Burriana, about 2 kms from the villa. The 800-metre beach is a mixture of fine sand and pebbles and has all the facilities you could wish for. There are numerous beach bars and seafront cafes here. There's a full range of water sports including scuba diving and boat cruises along the coast.
There is a bus service from near the villa into town. The timetables are seasonal, and you can use these to get you near to the beaches. There is ample car parking at all the beaches.
The beaches, and the communal pool on the site, have umbrellas and sunbeds for hire. Our apartment has sunbeds, and sun umbrellas which you are welcome to use at the pool or beach.
The pool complex has lifeguards on duty during open hours. The beaches also are guarded during the height of the season.
Local Restaurants and Shopping: There are loads of restaurants in the town, a huge variety of British run and international, and also local Spanish. On the urbanization, there are 6 bar/restaurants, and bars/cafes around the pool that serve food and drinks.
The local shopping is easily accessible. Next to the pool complex on site is a 'sells- everything' supermarket. Then at the exit off the main road to the site is a very large supermarket selling a vast range of British produce. Then, of course, Nerja has several comprehensive Spanish supermarkets.
Please note, that during the high season, mid July/August we only hire out both apartments together
