    Apartment in San Juan de Capistrano, Nerja, Costa del Sol, Spain

    About the area

    Nerja is wonderful because to the west is the "laid back" safe Praisso beach,within the town there are a number of sandy coves, and to the east the "buzzy" Burriana beach where there is a diving school. All within a 10 minute drive, or 20 minute down hill walk.

    Approximately 20 minute drive towards Malaga, there is a full size golf course.

    Skiing is available up in the Sierra Nevada, approximately 1hr 30 mins away.

    How to get there
    Malaga Airport is approx 60 km along an excellent motorway taking about 45 minutes. There is a half hourly shuttle bus from the airport to Malaga bus station and then connecting to the Nerja bus.(I am told by my sister that this is amazingly cheap and easy to do).

    The centre of Nerja is about a 6 minutes drive or 25minutes walk. To taxi back is 7 euros.
    Nerja caves at Maro are just 5 minutes away.
    Frigilliana is a beautiful white village up in the mountains behind Nerja. About 10 minute drive.
    Almunecar, of Laurie Lee fame, is a 20 minutes drive. With it's busy markets and beach restaurants.
    Granada with the amazing Alhambra Palace is an hour and half drive away (nearly all motorway now).
    Cordoba and Seville, each about two and a half drive.

    Further Details
    Nerja is a beautiful Spanish town, with it's dramatic mountains behind, and the blue Mediterranean seas in front. Quaint alleyways, vibrant shopping streets, with bars, cafes and some excellent restaurants. Banks and supermarkets are all here. Or have a coffee on the Balcon de Europa, and just watch the world go by.
    San Juan de Capistrano is built in the style of a white Moorish village. With it's attractive gardens and alleyways. The complex boasts a large communal pool (open March to October) with life guards in attendance, children's pool, bars and restaurants and a small supermarket.

    "The Perfect Holiday!"

    What a perfect holiday we had at this beautiful home from home. Although technically it probably has to be called an apartment - it's not really - it's a small and perfectly formed little house! Sitting on the terrace in the morning with my tea looking out to sea surrounded by peace and tranquillity was the best part of my day. Shortie (the small kid) had a great time throwing a ball about in the garden at "quiet" time and the teen lounged around on the sun beds reading and snoozing. "Him indoors" liked the terrace at dusk looking out to sea. In the evening you couldn't do better than to stroll down to KK's bar and curry house for a meal or just a couple of drinks and chat with Karen and Kim. Kim makes THE best pilau rice EVER! A very happy family that will definitely return to this apartment from heaven.

    Response to review:
    Wow, thank you. We have now added WiFi to our apartment. And of course there is always a discount for returning guests.

    "Nerja Apartment"

    This trip was our 2nd time in Nerja and was fantastic, this particular property ticked every box for a family of four. Upon arrival it was apparent that the apartment was very well maintained and in excellent order and is exactly as it is described in the blurb. The 1st thing you notice as you have dropped your bags and turn to walk back out onto the terrace is the stunning view, it is a view I will never get tired of!! We would sit either last thing in the afternoon with a cold drink or 1st thing in the morning with a coffee and just sit and stare at the view, that in itself was relaxing and just eased the suburban stress from your shoulders. San Juan Capistrano is a lovely area and very quiet, the pool area has a few bars and restaurants of which we would recommend KK's Bar and Balti, there is a wide range of food to choose from and it is all wonderfully prepared by Kim (He is a traditionally trained balti chef), they also show all of the football if you are interested!! If you venture down into Nerja Town (Recommended), you will find a host of traditional bars and restaurants (No music bars apart from an area outside of the old town called Tuti Frutti) our favorite's are the Barillas Bar, Little Italy and Pinochio's, there are also a host of ice cream shops and stall's....mmmmmm. if you are looking for a real taste of Spain and a relaxing holiday, then Nerja is for you. 10/10

    About the Owner

    We live in Hampshire and have been going to southern Spain for a number of years,with the idea of one day buying a property. 6 years ago we discovered Nerja and had no need to look any further. Nerja was it. Last year we were in the fortunate position to be able to buy number 29. The complex of San Juan de Capistrano was in the perfect area with pools, restaurants, sea and mountain views. It needed some renovation and we have enjoyed making it our second home. We have grown up children and as we are heading towards retirement look forward to spending much more time there.

    Year property purchased: 2011

    Why this location?

    We bought this property primarily because of the stunning sea views. Our home is set in lovely peaceful gardens and benefits from being semi detached. San Juan is built in the style of an attractive Spanish white village. Nerja is great whether it's a beach/pool type holiday, or for the cultural towns of Granada, Cordoba and Seville. Malaga airport being less than an hours easy drive. We have been holidaying in the area for a month a year for 5 years now, falling in love with it because although it has all of the amenities you could want for a holiday, it still remains a small Spanish town. There are all of the tourist stuff ,however there are also smaller beaches and cobbled alleys away from the bustle.

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    The apartment has a refitted kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, and newly refitted shower room. We are about 200meters from the pools, bars and restaurants, and the parking area is approximately 50meters from the apartment, up a gently stepped and grassed slope. Towels and bedlinen changed weekly. Cleaned before your arrival and on leaving. On site Agent. Cable TV
