About Gary & Morgana Hartley

We are family of 5 (3 children age 23, 21 and 14). We visit Frigiliana as often as school and work holidays allow. We enjoy walking, eating, drinking and visiting the beach. We also like the occasional ski trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Gary & Morgana Hartley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Gary & Morgana Hartley chose Frigiliana

The property enjoys spectacular views and is much larger than an average two bedroom apartment. This has been great for us as it allows us to enjoy family time and to find private spaces for those moments when you just want an hour alone.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is much larger than a standard two bedroom and has an exceptionally large roof terrace with beautiful views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Apartment is more like a house as it is on 3 levels and is so spacious and tastefully decorated. Thank you for letting us stay. We will be back.

Village is beautiful we will definitely book again next year.

Kids loved it, the sandy beaches were great and they really enjoyed the village Olympic pool and snack bar!

Great apartment - fab location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was actually a real surprise. I wasn't expecting quite so much for such a reasonable price. The house had a great layout with lots of lovely little balconies and an amazing roof terrace with great views of the village, mountains and sea. The apartment was well equipped with everything you need and had not one but two hairdryers, which it said were not included in the blurb! Figiliana is a lovely place for anyone but an ideal location for walkers/ramblers like us. There are no shortage of great restaurants and bars, lovely little independent shops and galleries for those who want to be less active. We will definitely be back.

Perfect location in a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

After a slight delay gaining access to the apartment we were very pleased with what we found inside. The apartment is bright very spacious & well equipped. Comfy bed in the main bedroom. The terraces are lovely with fantastic views though the cushions could do with a refurb. Loved the location, very handy for the old town but peaceful for sleeping. Will recommend

Amazing 2 weeks!

  • 5 of 5

Without doubt the best apartment and village we have ever stayed in. The apartment was huge! Very well equipped and beautifully positioned. We enjoyed many BBQ's on the roof top terrace. The pool was a god send in the heat and most days we had it too ourselves. Agree with the previous review that the outdoor furniture is in desperate need of replacing. Thank you Gary, if we returned to Frigilliana we would definitely rent your apartment again.

A relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable and well equipped apartment . It was in a quiet location and within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the outside space on the roof terrace, great for alfresco dining and lazing on a sun bed. We would suggest that the outside furniture is in need of attention.

This villa is in an idea location at the quieter end of town. Plenty of room and the roof terrace is ideal for sunbathing and star watching. The villa is very well equipped and has everything you need. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance all reasonably price. We will definitely be back.
