The perfect place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Marta from the moment we saw it. A traditional building, lovely pool, beautiful gardens & breathtaking views. The property was very clean & well looked after & would be the perfect place to settle down for a week or two of relaxation, or as a base to explore the surrounding areas. Everything we needed was provided for being comfortable both inside & out.

We received a very warm welcome from Polly, who explained where everything was & gave us tips on things to do/places to see. We were given some basic supplies - bread, butter, milk, coffee, tea, sugar & cava to start us off.

Later in the week we also met the delightful Pepe, who works on his garden & pool and makes a cracking job of it!

Locally we visited Nerja & had a great lunch at Rey Alfonso on the Balcon de Europe. We also did a supermarket shop in Nerja & in fact, ate in every night except for one night. (Why would we want to leave such a beautiful place).

The night we went out to was at Venta de Frigiliana, which is very close by. We had a great night there, food was good, home cooking, wine was a good price & the owners very friendly.

I would definitely recommend Villa Marta, directions for getting there are excellent & Polly or Boz guide you the short drive to the Villa. Thank you Polly & Pepe & I'm sorry I didn't meet you Boz.

Charming rural villa. Well designed with lots of space in and out.

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing place to be. 4km or so from Frigiliana which is a pretty, interesting and useful (for supplies) town. Loved location in the hills and close to goat farm/along track and will hope to return in the not too distant future. Family of 4; kids 12 and 10.

Review of Villa Marta

  • 5 of 5

This is a super villa set in the peaceful countryside just outside Frigiliana. The villa was clean, spacious, fairly well appointed & on a large plot too. It had private, secure parking onsite too which was helpful. Boz was great in providing useful & informative help for our stay & meeting us to guide us to the villa. The pool was an absolute god send as the tempature was quite high when we stayed so we did spend a lot of time in it or on the sunloungers also provided. Frigiliana & nearby Nerja have plenty of choice for places to eat at competetive prices for good quality food. Overall this is a very pleasant, peaceful place to stay (you do need a car though) & I would book the villa again.

Lovely villa, quite surrounding, private pool

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, located a few kilometers north of Frigiliana in the countryside. Very suited for an escape from the hectic life back home. The weather being great in southern Spain, we loved being outside. There is ample space on the property, a swimming pool, a BBQ, a porch, ... The villa/garden is maintained very well and we enjoyed it very much.

Great villa.

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in the hills above Frigiliana this a great villa.

Great help from Biz who guides you the last kilometre to the villa and settles you in.

Villa is very well equipped and spacious with a nice pool and well maintained grounds.

The owner Pepe is also very helpful and takes a great pride in the villa.

It's close to the town of Frigiliana which has many nice restaurants and a pretty old town.
