About the property

Farmhouse near Frigiliana, Costa del Sol, Spain - Farmhouse with Private Pool, Situated on Ridge, Frigiliana Old Town Nestled on Easterly Aspect

The villa is situated near to the beautiful whitewashed village of Frigiliana. It is in a secluded position, facing south towards the sea and is surrounded by wonderful mountain and sea views. Frigiliana has been noted the prettiest village in Andalucia by the Spanish tourism authority. With its Moorish influences and narrow cobbled streets it has great character and its varied bars and restaurants suit all tastes. Nerja is the nearest coastal town with the centre being the incomparable Balcon de Europa. Here are beautiful beaches, numerous interesting shops as well as splendid selectio of bars and restaurants. The Nerja caves are one of Spain's biggest tourist attractions and well worth a visit. We consider this villa, with its pleasing location in an area of conservation, to offer peace and tranquillity whilst still being within a few minutes drive of many amenities, able to meet all your holiday desires.

Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here 3 years in a row, and it is perfect for our family of 2 adults and 3 children.

The location is stunning, with views of the sea, mountains and Frigiliana.

The owner Melanie has always been helpful, and we would certainly stay here again.

We loved this villa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa, the location is great with beautiful 360 degrees views, the villa itself is beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything you need. There's loads of outdoor space, the garden/pool get's the sun in the morning and afternoon, then the balcony get's it in the evening.

If you're into horse riding visit Dagmar Ritter at the bottom of the hill, she offers natural horsemanship lessons and beautiful treks on her five lovely horses. http://www.longriderwoman.com/

You can walk into the village through the day via some country tracks but I wouldn't really say you could walk in for dinner/in the dark. However the hotel La Posada Morisca is nearby and the food there is great.

We couldn't have asked for more, perfect!

Fantastic girls week near Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a lovely villa set in the hills outside Frigiliana, living up to the description on the website. The position of the villa gives rise to fantastic views across the countryside to the sea.

The villa is beautifully decorated and maintained, clean and well kept with generous accommodation for 6 to 8 people. All necessary facilities are available for a break away from it all. The kitchen area is well equipped with a generously proportioned range cooker, fridge freezer and washing machine. The bedrooms are all decorated to a high standard with en suite facilities for 2 of the bedrooms and a separate bathroom for the 3rd bedroom. All rooms are on one level. The pool and patio areas are accessible via patio doors. There is a generously sized patio with a dining table and chairs and barbecue facilities which then leads to the pool and sunbed area. There is a balcony to the side of the house with seating/ dining facilities for an alternative spot to relax in whilst taking in the views and tranquility.

Frigiliana, a pretty white village is only a short drive away. There are numerous individual shops and boutiques within Frigiliana as well as bars and restaurants serving excellent food.

Nerja is the nearest coastal town which has an impressive centre. The Balcon de Europa is a wonderful place to stop to take in the views, to stroll and take photographs, stop for a bite to eat or drink, or just to sit and relax and watch the world go by. There are numerous and varied shops, many lovely restaurants and bars. The town has a great vibe about it with a feel of authentic Spain.

I can recommend this villa for its charm and it's ability to provide the perfect setting for a holiday which can be as peaceful and relaxing or as energetic and fun-filled as you wish to make it.

Wonderful Tranquil Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly fab location, stunning views looking down the valley to the sea, picturesque Friglianna village to the left. Peaceful and relaxing villa, very private, but with a short 15 minute drive down the mountain you are in the heart of Nerja to enjoy restaurants, bars, shopping heaven and a beautiful town.

The villa is tastefully decorated, lovely and clean with all needs met, comfy beds, good quality bedding, BBQ etc. A very welcoming clean pool and sun deck to enjoy the sun shine and peaceful surroundings.

Having a car is essential to get around and get the most out of the location.

I would definitely recommend this villa to others, and would visit again.
