Overview

Frigiliana landladies pride themselves on having the neatest and best-presented holiday villas in the eastern Costa del Sol. Their professional experience  in providing uncomplicated, well-made holiday homes that cater to the needs and desires of overseas holidaymakers shows through here.

The property is reached along a longish, winding country lane, and yet it’s less than ten minutes from Frigiliana itself and just 20 minutes from the coast at Nerja and sandy beaches.

The villa is reliably neat, clean and well-kept and has been planted round with shrubs, trees and flowering plants by the owner, who is herself a gardener.

It’s set in hilly, semi-tropical countryside where other villas are dotted around, but it is still distinctly private. The area is cultivated not only with olives but also with mangos and avocados, and so has a quite exotic feel.

Your accommodation is bright and cheerful, open-plan in classic Mediterranean style, and almost entirely ground floor, except for one bedroom on a lower level, where it opens onto the rear gardens.

A very correctly equipped kitchen combines with a dining area and a sitting area, which is comfortably furnished with sofa and armchairs for five people at any one time.

Shutters and curtains can block out the light effectively so that you’re not disturbed by the early morning sun. Sun is one holiday ingredient that you’re likely to have plenty of here. This Axarquia region is the sunniest in Spain and the preferred choice of many a northern European who wants the best chance of enjoying long days under clear, blue skies.

Being able to combine a good, private swimming pool with days at the beach is what really makes this perfectly adequate, but never overstated, holiday home into a very attractive proposition.

You can see in the photos how the villa leads out to a broad pool terrace. It’s a handsome blue mosaic pool, 8 metres by 4 metres, with steps down into the water.

The views from the terrace swing all the way round from the mountain backdrop of Sierra Tejeda to the Mediterranean Sea twinkling in the crook of the hills.

A major feature directly outside the house is a roofed porch terrace, where a table for six is definitely the best place to dine. Just round the corner, a barbecue adds an extra mini-dimension to the holiday experience.

A  road winds down to the sea in just 20 minutes. A range of beaches includes the popular Nerja strands and Maro, where the most natural beaches are sometimes protected and accessed by foot or a special minibus service.

Down at the coast, where sea-and-sand await, so do barbecued fish at the chiringuito summer beach restaurants. Many more restaurants and café-bars are on hand in nearby Frigiliana and coastal Nerja.

For a taste of local produce, breakfast Andalucia-style on toasted bread with olive oil and fresh tomato,try Frigiliana’s molasses honey on ripe avocado, or sip sweet Moscatel wine. Your stay may well coincide with a village fiesta to add spice to the week.

We recommend this villa to those who prefer to play it safe when it comes to holiday plans and to select a dependable villa at a very acceptable price.

To inject an element of adventure into your stay, we do have a couple of enticing suggestions:

Remember you’re in the early sierra here: a hike up the Higueron river can be a delight even in a hot summer, searching for natural bathing pools and little waterfalls. Penetrate the Tejeda mountain range and you’ll discover some very pretty spots.

Visit Granada. A new, swift route takes you there in just over an hour, putting the Alhambra Palaces very much on your visit list. On the way to Granada, a road branches off to the Alpujarras and the opportunity to get to know a very different, older mountain world.

It was great, clean, nice people. Really a lovely place."

Victoria | July | 2019

Beautifully clean, amazing views, wonderful pool, so quiet. Off the beaten track but only 10 mins away from lovely Frigiliana (tip: make sure you pinpoint the villa on your sat nav before you leave for the first time to go and explore!). Would definitely recommend this villa."

Martin | July | 2019

This property is very special, very well looked after, great super clean large pool, great views, great privacy. Quiet. Just great. Road in and out a bit precarious but then that’s what makes it so special. Loved it!"

Jill | July | 2019

Our family of four ( 2 adults and 2 boys aged 13 and 8) had a superb time here. The house was spotlessly clean on arrival with a lovely 'welcome platter' of local fruit and a bottle of wine. The house had everything we needed and was designed to maximise the beautiful views. We spent most of our time in the pool or on the terrace and there was almost always a bit of a breeze, which was welcome. Enjoying the peacefulness and watching the birds coasting on the updraughts from the sea in the morning and evening was magical."

Jo | August | 2018

We absolutely loved this villa! It had a great layout, was spotlessly clean and had views to die for. It was a short drive from Frigiliana which had lots of lovely restaurants, and about 20 minutes from Nerja if you're looking for a bigger town (it was far too busy while we were there so we steered clear). The villa has lovely gardens and even has mango, avocado and lime trees growing at the back. Although it has a lane running along side it, you are far enough off the beaten track to only get a couple of cars a day, and a few horse riders, even in peak season. The views are panoramic, down towards the sea at Nerja, and back towards the mountains. They really are quite incredible and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone who's looking for a completely chilled out holiday. It's very hard to find fault but I guess for the sake of balance I should say that the pool has a leak, and quite a bad one. We had to refill it with the hose every day because it dropped about 10cm a day. Unfortunately this meant that the water in the pool wasn't as warm as we'd hoped. The owner told us that they are planning to get it fixed so I'm sure it won't be an issue for long."

Rustical Update

Although there wasn´t a leak as such the problem was identified and the property manager invested in a new system for the pool which has solved this reported issue.

It's a great house - really comfortable, well equipped and like a home from home. All the small touches, like the bowl of fruit and the food and drink in the fridge were really appreciated.
