Why Tony Clarke chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We fell in love with Frigiliana back in 2004 and we visit 3 or 4 times every year, we never get fed up and feel at home every time we visit. The locals are very friendly and make you feel welcome. We love to sit at one of the many cafes, drink coffee, sip wine and people watch, so relaxing. Take a look at our video tour showing inside our apartment, click on the photos section for the link

What makes this apartment unique

Our property is located in the old town of Frigiliana and is only a few minutes walk to centre of the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday to Frigiliana, it's a very unspoilt and pretty village with everything you need to hand. We loved exploring the village and seeking out all of its hidden restaurants and bars. We enjoyed shopping in the local shops each day for fresh bread, cheese, ham etc and the English run wine shop was great and the owners very helpful and friendly. We found the apartment very clean and well equipped with everything you need. We had a very relaxing time and have recommended it to our friends. M Poulter, Yarnton, Oxfordshire.



'It was wonderful as you know, we can’t wait to go back. All the restaurants were so reasonable (even those deemed to be ‘up market’! The photos don’t do the town justice: the views are spectacular. We found everyone (residents and Spaniards) to be really welcoming. Frigiliana is such a safe place; we were quite happy for our three to go off by themselves.' R Hilton, Mickleover, Derby.

Quality as always

Seventh visit to Frigiliana and this apartment. Great location, very clean and tidy, ideal for 3-4 people. The village has character and is very quiet, outside fiesta time, with many fantastic places to eat out, all with amazing views. I'm heading back as soon as I can !

Marvellous - book it!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment took us by surprise because it's inexpensive yet perfectly situated, has a fantastic pool, is tastefully furnished, very secure and immaculately clean and tidy. It's also just five minutes on foot from the middle of the old town yet we had no problem parking, even in high season.

And although there are no mountain views from the apartment itself and the double bedroom is admittedly tiny (so there's no room for a bedside table on either side or the bed), it's a good size for a family of four thanks to the open plan kitchen/living room, and has everything you need for a week's stay or more.

The best part is that it's on the ground floor, looking out at the huge pool and gardens (from which there ARE views), so we could keep an eye on our children (9 and 12 at the time) while they were splashing around - if we weren't in there with them!

Conversely, we felt safe sitting by the pool ourselves with a beer or coffee while they had a siesta in the afternoons, in preparation for an evening out in beautiful Frigiliana - it took seconds to check on them or they could call to us from the window. Bear in mind that many apartments in this village are on huge complexes several minutes' away from their pools or on high floors. We were so pleased that we chose this one.

Don't be worried about the lack of air conditioning. We were, but Tony explained that the mobile turbo fan would be really effective and he was right, even though the temperature was in the 40s all week. Actually we found that the flat being warmish helped us to acclimatise because we weren't stepping outside to the heat from an artificially chilly apartment. None of us found it a problem.

However there are quite a few stairs to reach the apartment from the road or to get into the village, so it's probably not suitable for those with walking difficulties.

I definitely recommend it. It's not luxurious or grand but it's extremely comfortable and well looked after, the price/value ratio is exceptional and Frigiliana's the most beautiful village we visited in this region by some margin, minutes from Nerja and its beach and an easy day trip to Granada and the Sierra Nevada by car.

Don't hesitate - it's a bargain so book it before someone else does!
