About the property

Frigiliana 2 bedroom Andalucian Townhouse in the heart of the Old Town

Featured on 'A Place in the Sun'.

Casa Christina is registered as a Casa Rural CR/MA/01268

Charming village townhouse in the heart of the Old Town of Frigiliana (voted the prettiest village in Andalucia by the Spanish tourism authority).

Your first sight of Frigiliana will be that of the dazzling white houses and the Mediterranean sea in the distance just 6 kilometres away. The Axarquia region of Andalucia is well known for its 'pueblos blancos' but Frigiliana's historical quarter is generally considered to have best preserved it's Moorish charm.

Tastefully renovated to a high standard in a traditional Moriscon style, the house is an opportunity to enjoy the village life of this picturesque 'white painted', Andalucian town. A short distance away from the lovely coastal resort of Nerja and only 45 mins from Malaga airport.

The house is typical in style of many traditional houses in Andalucia and oozes charm and character. It is within walking distance of some superb restaurants, friendly bars and shops for essentials or beautiful local crafts.

It also retains some original features and we believe the 'cave' bathroom must be unique! The roof terrace is ideal for dining 'al fresco' or just for relaxing and enjoying the views.

It also offers a terrace on a lower level. Perfect for watching the world go by!

The delight of staying in old town Frigiliana is being able to easily explore the beautiful cobbled streets and discovering something new everyday! There is still a strong feeling of community in this lovely historic village and the mainly Spanish residents are friendly and welcoming.

There is a regular bus that runs between Frigiliana and Nerja. It costs 1 euro and only takes approx 15 minutes! Nerja is famous for it's beaches (ten in all , two of which have won Blue Flag awards) and for it's reluctance to lose it's 'traditional spanish feel'.

The buses from Nerja will take you to many places. A city break? Granada and Malaga are less than an hour away!

About John and Christine Harrison

We purchased this property this year as we absolutely love the village (and the house).

We have another holiday letting property in rural France which we have owned and let for over 7 years.

John and Christine Harrison purchased this house in 2015

Why John and Christine Harrison chose Frigiliana

The property was completely renovated about 15 years ago to a very high standard and with some very interesting features. Prior to that the house had been occupied for over 50 years by a local lady. In keeping with the 'Barrio Morisco' (Moorish Quarter) the internal deco of the house is in a Moorish/Moroccan style which we have embraced.

What makes this house unique

Right in the heart of the old town a short walk away from some wonderful restaurants with lovely views over the sea and mountains.

Wonderful tastefully decorated townhouse in the heart of Frigiliana.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic and very comfortable 2week holiday at Casa Christina. The village house is in the heart of the town but easily located after a few steps from the main square. The house is beautiful and full of facilities and the top terrace absolutely delightful.

We absolutely loved our stay in Frigiliana and this apartment/house was the ideal base. It is right in the heart of the old town and a quick walk to everything. It is on a quiet street without cars so sleeping was excellent. The bedrooms downstairs stayed nice and cool and were a great place to retreat when it got hot outside. The third level with the kitchen has a wonderful balcony with an amazing view of the town and even the ocean in the distance. We alternated days in Frigiliana and the beaches at Nerja which were a 15 minute bus ride down the hill.

Honestly, we loved this home more and more each day we were there. So much charm yet also very comfortable and convenient. Highly recommend.

Wonderful time in Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the townhouse. As a family of four with a baby and preschooler, we did think about booking something more practical (eg closer to coast, with nearby parking etc) but the atmosphere and location of the house made up for the slight impracticalities! The house was very well equipped and a great place to just do nothing in particular as you have the roof terrace to sit on, plus the beautiful first floor lounge with twin balconies. It's close to all the town's amenities so very easy to nip out and have a wander.

We would definitely recommend the property to other people. Part of the charm of the house is it's roof terrace, balconies and open staircases and they would be a bit of a headache for families with particularly adventurous toddlers/small children, but for everyone else we wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Fabulous house in beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, all you could need plus lots more.

Comfortable and cool when it was hot. Lovely decor and homely feel.

Only improvement would be doors on the bedrooms for privacy .

But we loved our stay and hope to return

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind comments, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. We understand your comments regarding the doorways to the bedrooms, but whilst not as effective as wooden doors, we feel the thick curtains do provide privacy and are more in keeping with the style of the house.We look forward to you visiting again.

Beautiful Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful with fantastic views from the roof terrace. We had a wonderful week there.

Be warned though parking can be tricky, we always found a spot but sometimes it was a 10 minute walk to the house and there are a lot of steps!

These are minor complaints though the beautiful village, house and views make the parking issues and steep steps more than worth it.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Frigiliana is an idyllic little village and this rental is perfectly situated in the heart of the old village. We loved everything from the "cave" bathroom to the rooftop terrace with extraordinary views. The house was clean and well maintained. The clothes washer in the kitchen was ever so nice to have. There is a great selection of books and some good movies too in the sitting room. We loved our home away from home.
