About Thomas

We are from Sweden and this is our dream house. It's the place where we shall spend our time during the cold Swedish winters when we are retired. I spend already 3-4 months here every winter because there's a lot of maintenance to do as painting, gardening, repairing etc. It took us 20 years before we could afford to buy this land and build the house. We hope you will like the place as much as we do.

Thomas purchased this villa in 2001

Why Thomas chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We want to live in the country side but still within walking distance to the village. The plot does not lean as much as many others do. So the plot is to use better and we love the view from the terrace. We like to wake up to the sounds of birds instead of the sounds from cars, neighbors etc.

What makes this villa unique

I think this is the villa, for rent, that is closest to the village. Only a 6 min walk. This is highly appreciated. The water purifier. Always drinking water from the cold tap in the kitchen. Only 500m on a concrete paved road from the main road that passes through Frigiliana. The water in Frigiliana and south of Spain contains a lot of lime, 37dHº, and therefore we have installed a water decalcifyer. It makes the water very soft so you don't have to use so much soap and detergent which is better for the enviroment. The hot water is produced by solarpanels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed in many houses in Frigiliana but I must say that Tejar de Arriba is the most amazing house I've ever seen. We got the feeling of being at home. One can see that you are doing much to keep the house in order. If there is a paradise on earth, it must be Tejar de Arriba. We will come back many times. With best regards - Fam. Hagedorf, Denmark.

A few words to say that we enjoyed our stay at the villa and to thank you for the quick response regarding the pool problems. We have stopped many times in the area and your villa was amongst the best we have stopped at. - Fam. Fair, Wakefield, England

My wife and I have just returned from staying at your villa and unfortunately we have to complain. We feel the need to complain that unfortunately we had to leave and return home. It was absolutely the most amazing place which we have holidayed in and the reality far outreaches the website. A truly amazing place!!!!!!!!! Cant wait to return one day.

Fam. Fowler, Swindon, England.

"This is the life"

  • 5 of 5

What can I say this place was better than I ever imagined from the moment I picked up the keys till the moment we had to hand them back. The villa was in the most perfect location with the square next to the church an easy 20 minute stroll which was handy on an evening when dining out and having a glass of red (or two). The views over the valley and towards the sea are stunning.The kitchen is very well equipped and off the top of my head I can't think of anything the owners didn't supply plenty glasses, plates, pans, cutlery etc. and all appliances microwave, washing machine, fridge/freezer, toaster all in great working order. The property was very clean and well maintained as was the outside terraces and the wonderful pool. Thomas provided a good trouble free service without any problems and was a pleasure to deal with. I did take the advice of a previous guest and took a torch for walking home and this was a great bit of advice as it is unlit. I would certainly recommend Tejar de Arriba to anyone looking for an ideal base to stay in Frigiliana or to explore the beautiful surrounding area so much so that on our return we booked for next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this great review. We are staying there for 3-4 months every year and try to maintain it as good as possible. I hope I manage to install a new wifi system, 10 Mbs down and 6 Mbs up, before the summer 2017 which will be free of charge and also a lot of UK channels. I'll keep you updated about this on our Facebook site for Tejar de Arriba.

A wonderful family villa nestled in the mountains but only a 10 minute walk to beautiful Frigiliana

The villa has everything you require for a wonderful holiday . It is a home from home and dealing with the owners is a dream , would love to visit again . would recommend Lidl in Nerja for all your shopping needs

Beautiful Villa!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this beautiful villa. It was equipped with everything you need and was very clean. We walked into Frigiliana every day for supplies and a few drinks or something to eat. There are plenty of very good restaurants. All grocery shops shut for siesta from 2-5pm which is worth noting. As previously said - a torch is a must if walking to/from villa in the dark. We took one after reading previous review. It would be handy to have one at the villa for those who don't take one. We also saw the chameleon - brilliant! I was surprised there wasn't a visitors book or any information regarding restaurants etc. Also a bus timetable would have been handy so remember to print one from the internet. It is only because of the lack of info I have given 4 stars, but would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I think you can find your "missing" info in the smartphone app for OwnersDirect. It's easier to change info there than change info in a written book which only can be changed when we are there. Best regards Thomas & Anette

Most relaxing holiday ever

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday spending all day at the villa, and walking into the village at night time for dinner. We would usually venture further, to La Herradura and the water park in Almunacer but it was so hot while we were there we were content to spend our time sitting in the shade and going for dips to cool off. The highlight of our stay was seeing a chamaleon walking in front of the villa before climbing up the fence into the olive trees.

For anyone walking into the village at night you will need a torch on the way back.

Our only problem was with no air conditioning it was difficult to sleep, but even the local people were complaining about how hot it was.

Owner's Response: Hi Helena and thank you so much for your review. We have seen the chameleon several times in the garden but we don't know if it is the same one every time or if there are more of them. Here's a video of it shot in May-15. https://www.facebook.com/thomas.ekman1/videos/vob.665910783/10152919278600784/?type=2 Best regards Thomas

Wonderful! Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic, most wonderful villa and only a short walk to the centre of Frigiliana. We have been twice now and never fails to impress. The pictures don't do it justice. It has everything you need in the villa - proper home from home.It was scrupulously clean and very well maintained. The outside area is enormous on four levels, with a large patio area and bbq- has a sink outside, another terrace below and then another dining area around around the pool area ( pool is fantastic!) Below this is a fruit and veg garden so you can pick fresh veg every day.Frigililiana is a very beautiful village with a few restaurants and bars- it has a very Spanish feel.Sebastian the goat herder has a farm down the road and sometimes lets the goats graze just outside with his trusty dog.My husband went to the farm and Sebastian let him milk the goats! We will be back yet again!!!

Just home from our 2 week stay at this fabulous villa and I have to say it was truly wonderful great pool fantastic outdoor space and spotless clean inside and out. The location was perfect just a 10 minute stroll to the village which is just so beautiful with lots of choice for dinning out or having a few cold drinks. All in all we cannot recommend it highly enough all hope to get back again. Myself and my family just fell in love with the hole area.
