Pueblo Villa With Panoramic Views - And Unlimited Wireless Broadband!
Sleeps 4 adults/older children plus a small child
Our "pueblo villa" apartment is approached from a cul de sac parking area via a series of about 15 gently rising steps spread over 50 metres through well maintained tropical gardens and walkways. A private gate leads into our tiled patio garden and south facing terrace with its spectacular views across the town and Mediterranean. New aluminium French doors open onto the terrace from both bedrooms and the lounge/diner. We have a 26inch TV (with Sky Sports!) and also unlimited wireless broadband, new bedroom, lounge and dining furniture mixed in with some traditional pieces. Our kitchen and bathroom have been modernised. The kitchen has a new oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. 200 yards away is San Juan's renowned communal pool, open from Easter to October, with separate children’s pool, poolside bars and loungers for hire etc. There is also a small Supermarket and several restaurants, and a regular and very reliable bus service into town.

Notes on accommodation
The property is child friendly - with the terrace divided off from the stairs down to the garden area by a gate. There is a McLaren buggy for the use of our guests if required. An extra cot or child's bed can be rented directly from our agent. We even have CBeebies!
Oil filled radiators for each room are provided for colder weather use, whilst fans are provided to combat the summer heat. There is a retractable wind-up blind to provide shade - should it be required - over the main part of the sun terrace.
The property has not been adapted for the use of persons with mobility problems. There are about 15 steps to negotiate over 50 yards to get to the property from the parking area (although one can walk across a gently sloping lawn) - and then there are half a dozen stairs up to the lockable front gate and another half dozen stairs from the garden area to the terrace / entrance level to the apartment itself.
Below the extensive terrace, which runs the whole width of the property, is a walled and fully enclosed garden area with raised flower and scrub borders. The main area has been tiled over to provide an additional secluded sunbathing area that catches the late evening sun or an easily supervised children's play area away from the main terrace. The outdoor furniture includes a dining table and four chairs, loungers and recliner.
Nerja itself has half a dozen excellent beaches. The largest - and nearest - is Burriana Beach which has numerous restaurants and shops, ample parking, and beach sports and games facilities. Burriana is just over half a mile away from San Juan.
The beautiful little Marina del Este is about a quarter of an hour's drive away. Apart from the lovely marina and beach there is an excellent diving school that caters for all abilities.
There is a full size golf course at Velez Malaga which is approximately 12 miles from Nerja
Granada and the Sierra Navada has extensive Ski resort facilities that are constantly being upgraded with access from the city centre to the pistes promised for the near future!
How to get there
Malaga airport is 35 miles away via an excellent motorway, the drive to San Juan de Capistrano taking approximately 45 minutes.
Granada airport (now served by budget airlines) is approximately 75 miles away - about a 90 minute drive.
Car hire is strongly recommended as the return cab fare from Malaga airport often equates to about a week's car hire!
Once in San Juan you will find that there is an excellent bus service to and from the town, whilst taxis cost about 5 Euros each way.
The award winning mountain village of Frigiliana is less than 10 miles away.
The wonderful city and palace of Granada are about an hour and a half away by car. Gibraltar, with its quaint and endearing Britishness is just a little further away, whilst Seville and Cordoba are each about two and a half hours away by car. Malaga is an attractive and vibrant city and should not just be seen as an airport to be passed through at either end of a holiday!
Nerja is both a working Spanish town and a holiday resort. It has a number of large supermarkets, an assortment of fashion and tourist shops and numerous excellent restaurants.
There is a shopping mall with over 120 outlets at Velez Malaga, which also has a Cinema complex (which invariably shows one English language film) and a water park.
There is another water park in Almunecar, a large town to the east of Nerja.
Bookings are normally taken from Saturday to Saturday although exceptions are made outside the main summer period. A deposit of 25% is required at the time a booking is made in order to secure the holiday dates wanted. The balance is then due eight weeks before the holiday itself commences. Keys are posted to holiday makers six weeks later.
About the owner
We are a retired married couple with three children and six grandchildren. One of the reasons why we bought the apartment in 2000 was so that we could give our three grown up children and their families an opportunity to enjoy holidays in a warm and beautiful corner of Europe. With our family background we believe that we know what couples and families are looking for from their accomodation. We have made a number of improvements to our property - including a new fitted kitchen and bathroom, a new tiled floor throughout, new internal and external doors etc. and are proud to offer it for rental. We believe that ours are high standards - and hope that our apartment reflects this.
Year purchased: 2000
Why the owner chose an apartment in this location
We holidayed in Nerja for a few years before deciding to buy there. We did so as it retains an essentially Spanish charm whilst being a lively - but not brash - holiday resort with much to see and do. It is easy and cheap to get to from most parts of Europe and is very well situated for those who want to explore Andalucia. It has the added advantage of being close enough to the increasingly popular Sierra Navada ski slopes to allow winter skiing for the keenest winter sports afficionados!
