The older part is a mass of narrow flower laden cobbled streets winding up the hillside with wonderful views over orchards and the coast to the South and Spectacular views of the National Park North and East across the magnificent Higueron Gorge. For historians and culturalists the Moorish past of Frigiliana remains visible today.

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.

Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous relaxing holiday at Villa Marta. You couldn't ask for anything more from a holiday rental, from the first enquiry contact to leaving for home, Boz and Polly have been exceptionally helpful from the start. The villa was spotless and very spacious, the setting is stunning as is the outside space with its fruit trees and beautiful flowers.

Lazy days by the pool and evenings spent on the spacious veranda. Frigiliana has lovely restaurants but if you didn't want to eat out the kitchen was well equipped for home cooking.

Pepe the owner is understandably very proud of his Villa and gardens, and loved showing the different flowers and plants to my husband who is also a garden lover.

We are already talking about our next visit.

Thank you Polly and Boz for all you did, it was so nice.

Angela and Tom

Peaceful retreat with great views

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed here two years ago, we felt as we had returned home, the villa as always was spotlessly clean as are the surrounding gardens and bbq area; there was a welcome pack and a nice note from Pepe welcoming us again.

Pepe came round to tend to the gardens and ensure that everything was ok.

Once ahain thank you Boz and Polly for all your help and assisitance during the booking process

A return visit to Villa Marta. The usual excellent service from Boz and Polly both before arrival and during stay. The villa is comfortable and spacious with comfortable beds. Good views of the surrounding country side and down to the sea. A good break from the hectic life in the bigger world.
