villa apartment

The whole villa has 2 apartments, which are completely independent, or will sleep 8 when rented as a whole. EACH apartment has: 1 twin and 1 double bedroom, bathroom, modern fully fitted kitchen with cutlery and crockery, dining area, living room with Cable TV, DVD/CD, free Wifi; bed linen and towels provided and changed weekly. There are electric radiators for the winter. Both apartments have their own patio; there is a small garden to the lower apartment, and an additional roof terrace to the upper. San Juan de Capistrano has beautiful established gardens and walkways, large supervised communal and children's pools (Easter to end-October), a small shop and many bar/restaurants (not all are open during the winter).

About the property

Villa at Nerja

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. To view a 360-degree video of the property, scroll to the end of Facilities, and select the Owner's Website button.

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.

Pleas note, that during the high season, mid July/August we only hire out both apartments together

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've enjoyed a wonderful holiday staying in your apartment. The development is really well designed and all the villas and gardens are so pretty; beautiful scents everywhere we walked. The pool is massive and they were always cleaning it. We really felt at home in the apartment and it was so quiet and peaceful on the occasions we sat out on the patio.

We walked into town most evenings but had one of our best meals in the Sink or Swim restaurant by the pool. where we met and chatted to an Irish couple who owned one of the apartments. We walked to the beach several times and to the amazing caves one day. We also had a bus ride to Frigiliana one day (1 Euro each!).

The apartment was perfect and had everything we could possibly need and so much nicer than staying in a hotel. We don't usually go back to the same place again because there are so many places to visit but we have both said we would go back to Nerja again. Thank you for letting us stay in your home.

Another lovely holiday in Nerja

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at San Juan de Capistrano many times now in different apartments all with slightly different views of the town and sea but we feel that this apartment was the best we have been to for both location and views. It is very close to the pool area and the shop and restaurants and is yet in a very peaceful location. The apartment had everything you could need for a holiday and roof terrace had the best views we have ever seen. a real home from home. The week that we stayed was Feria week and I would really recommend it as there was lots to see and do. We will be back soon.

peaceful and relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the downstairs lower apartment in february and it was wonderfully peaceful and relaxing. The villa is very well equipped and comfortable in every way.There were only 2 of us ,but there would be ample room for 4 .The upper apartment has better views of the mountains and sea, but the lower apartment enjoys the benefit of a pretty little enclosed private walled garden. .

San Juan has been tastefully designed in the style of an Andelucian village and it nestles under the mountains. It is well placed to drive quickly out into the mountains and down to the coast and Nerja has an enormous variety of restaurants .

The owners were extremely helpful and sent very good instuctions as to how to reach the villa from the airport.

It was just what we wanted. It could also be good to rent the whole villa if two families or a group of friends wanted to go on holiday together and also have a little bit of personal space away from each other.

I would be happy to recommend the property.

We will be back !!!

A little paradise.

My wife and i stayed in this apartment for 8 nights over Easter. Everything was perfect. The view of the ocean was fantastic from the roof top terrace. Lovely location. Very quiet. We will recommend the apartment to our friends.

Nerja nestles in the foothills of the Almijara range (excellent walking). The town is pretty and has avoided the Torremolinos-type tower blocks. It has narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces. At its heart is the Balcón de Europa, a magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff overlooking some 16 kms of sandy beaches and small secluded coves. There are panoramic views of the Mediterranean against an awesome backdrop of hazy blue mountains.

Nerja's most spectacular attraction is its fascinating caves, located just 1 km from our villa. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 yrs old and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during the summer.

Finally, for those who want to enjoy Nerja's many nightclubs and bars into the early hours, then the Tutti Frutti area in the centre of town is perfect for you.

Other Activities: World famous caves, go-karting, scuba courses. 90minutes Granada, Alhambra, skiing,etc.
