About the property

Villa in Frigiliana, near Nerja, Costa del Sol - Peaceful Location, Large Garden With Private Pool, Spectacular Sea Views

Very charming and spacious 250 year old rustic farmstead, situated in quiet area with splendid sea view. It was fully restored 6 years ago and has very good access. 1 mile up the road from the lovely old Arabic white village of Frigiliana and 3 miles from the lively town of Nerja with its beautiful Burriana Beach. The house has 4 bedrooms of which one can be used for 4 persons. It has a swimming pool, 3 terraces and a lovely big (4000 sqm) garden with tropical trees. The house has good access and offers lots of privacy behind walls that guarantee privacy. In the near environment you can walk, bike, ride horses and there are several restaurants within walking distance. Since the former owner was disabled, the house is 90% wheelchair friendly. The total house has central heating and therefore is also very comfortable during winter time!

About Adrian Bredero

About 15 years ago we, my wife and I, travelled through Spain for the first time. Before I was more interested in France since I was brought up by a Francophile father. My wife had been studying in Malaga and wanted me to see the beauty of southern Spain. I was immediately impressed by the unspoilt beauty and the wild nature you can find almost everywhere. After a few holidays driving around all parts of this magnificent country, we were struck by the perfect balanced True Spanish Nerja area. What started off as the well known window watching of estate agents soon became more and more serious. We have seen hundreds of houses. My wife loved to buy some kind of front line penthouse where I preferred an old and remote cottage. In the end we found in this little paradise the best of both ways.

Adrian Bredero purchased this villa in 2000

Why Adrian Bredero chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We bought this one of a kind house because my wife fell instantaneously in love with it. We had seen so many "not inspiring" houses that we realised that this was a once in a life time opportunity to become the owner of a piece of Spanish history. We have the intention to go and live here permanently in the future. It breezes the old Spanish atmosphere and is very luxurious without being too perfect or decadent. It's positioned in the second line from the beach. You can lay on the beach in 15 minutes and at the a same time you can immerse yourself in the peacefulness of the countryside. There is too much to be done. You can go for a walk in the mountains, go to the Sierra Nevada, visit the Alhambra, ride horse, go to the prehistoric caves of Nerja, enjoy a walk in prize winning Frigiliana.

What makes this villa unique

The most surprising advantage is the combination the tranquility of a country house on one hand and the comfort of a see side house on the other hand. This is because of the short drive the Nerja beach and having at the same time the shepherds who are passing by our house every day. The beautiful sea views in front of you and overwhelming mountain views behind you are also hard to describe. Every single room is very spacious with high ceilings and has a private see sights for you every morning to wake up. You can be in an unspoilt historic Spanish Hacienda with at the same time the all the modern facilities for summer and winter. Around the house there is so much to discover. We know the area so we can arrange almost anything. We do recommend e.g.to make a guided walk with our local guide.

Absolutely delightful

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous property. Spacious, traditional with everything you could possibly need. Clean and comfortable with excellent outdoor and indoor space. We were 2 families of 4 and there was plenty of space for all of us. The view is exceptional, the pool an absolute bonus and of course not forgetting the lovely Antonio who is on hand to help whenever you need it. Will absolutely return again. Don't hesitate, just book it.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

After enjoying the adorable Andalusian highlights for two weeks, we spent one delightful, relaxing week in Cortijo Los Almendros in Frigiliana.

The house is a very original, nice, clean and attractive place, very complete, with plenty of room and personal touches everywhere. We were just the two of us and only used the left side of the house with the charming bedroom and the bathroom where also physical disabled people could stay very well. On the very nice terraces we spent many, many relaxing moments during days and nights, enjoying the gorgeous view. Also the garden and swimmingpool were very attractive.

We made some tours in the neighbourhood to Frigiliana, Nerja, the beach and also a small walkingtour. The attractive sounding walkingtours we save for, perhaps, a next time, because our feet needed some rest after all those highlights. A great place to complete this memorable journey.

awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great large house, with all equipments needed. We were with a group of 8 persons, all different ages, and really loved it. Rural setting, few nice restaurants nearby, great place to start a walk deep into mountains. Swimming pool perfect for the kids and large garden to play (watch small children). Clean property and well maintained, loved the housekeeper/ manager! Would really recommend this propery to anyone!

Restaurant we loved was at acebuchal.

One of the loveliest places ever been!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest holiday last autumn, not in the least because of the great atmosphere of Cortijo Los Almendros. Spacious house, good beds, clean, good service of the owner and their maintainer (who speaks English perfectly). The views are amazing from every point of the garden, house. And although it's a quiet area, there are a few good bars and restaurants within walking distance. We recommend this place to anyone and will be back for sure!!
