Detached villa with private pool, garden, sea/mountain views in El Capistrano.



Updated: 14-Nov-2016
Lovely and peaceful location yet close to shops, beaches and town center.

CTC-201644173 Registered with the tourist department of the Junta de Andalusia.

This unique 2 bedroom detached villa is one of few in El Capistrano Village that has a private pool. This gives you the opportunity of enjoying the undisturbed privacy of your own pool, as well as getting full access to the large community pool areas with bars and restaurants.

The villa has underfloor heating in winter and air-condition in summer. Two large terraces offer sea and mountain views. With patios facing east, south and west you can catch in the sun (or the shade) all day. It is a very tranquil place with the private walled garden housing mandarin, passion fruit, banana, olive and avocado trees.

There are a lot of butterflies and birds song in the air. Do not be surprised if you hear bells as well, just across the road a heard of goats munch away on the grass from time to time. Yet the wonderful town centre of Nerja is only 20 minutes walk (or 5 by car or bus) away. The same goes for famous Burriana Beach with its many restaurants, beach volleyball courts and water sports.

At the entrance of El Capistrano there is a tennis club with both tennis and padel courts for hire. Here you also find two large, well-sorted supermarkets, Mercadona and Super Sol. Inside El Capistrano Village there is a minimarket, cash machine, restaurant and local pub, The Cave Bar.

"The villa was AMAZING!!! we had the best stay ever. After 10 years of visiting Nerja and Maro it was the best, and we have stayed in some very nice villas but this just had a lovely fresh open feel to it. Will definitely love to book for next year!!!!"

Switch off and relax!

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to the villa so many times. This year was very special, as a family, with our baby girl and all the perfect facilities needed for a trouble-free holiday.

The villa feels very homely, clean and spacious and you can't help but relax and switch off from the minute you arrive. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay - whether as a family, couples, friends etc.

In addition, the villa is very unique and special with its own private pool for more chilling on lilos and swimming too! The pool is set in beautiful, well maintained gardens. Plus there's an outside shower which is lovely to shower outside in the garden and warmth of the sun too!

There is a lovely beach you can go to if you fancy a change.

The position of the villa means all day sunshine but plenty of shade if needed too - which worked well with our little one.

We'd have coffee on the upper terrace early morning through to BBQ's on the bottom patio - sipping a glass of fizz as the sun goes down!

Nerja is a lovely part of Spain and the villa is in a perfect location and beautiful setting - the road runs on the outside of El Capistrano making it a safe and quiet location. Stunning views and beautiful walkways - it has a very Spanish feel to El Capistrano. No two villas/apartments are the same so it doesn't feel like a holiday complex more a private village/community.

There are good amenities on El Capistrano too. Nerja town is easy to get to from the villa - you can walk, taxi or shuttle bus where you'll find restaurants, bars and shops to suit everyone's needs. You are made to feel welcome by everyone. So, you can stay at the villa and cook (local supermarkets are well stocked) or you can go out every night if you want to.

Johan, the owner, is extremely efficient and customer service is second to none! He can't do enough for you and makes the booking process so simple. The team that support Johan in Spain are also helpful and friendly.

We could go on about this villa and location all day long ... we love to stay here so much ... we've booked for next year :-)

Highly recommend!

Fabulous villa, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect in every way from its peaceful position in Nerja but yet near to supermarkets and a pleasant 20 min stroll to the Balcon and beaches.

The villa is very well equipped for meals and BBQ and restaurants are within easy reach.

Both the owner and onsite managers of the property were helpful throughout the booking process and our stay.

No wonder this villa is booked a year in advance , but well worth the wait !!

Perfect all round

  • 5 of 5

Four of us 'forty somethings' (two couples) rented this lovely villa for a week in May and from initial communication with the owner (Johan) through to the moment we left to come home everything was first class. A quick phone call en route from the airport to Rita who met us on arrival and we were there without any fuss. We didn't need to call her at all but knowing that Rita was on hand locally should we need any help with anything was very comforting. We found the property was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly want or need during our stay. El Capistrano is a quiet residential village so it is very peaceful and not the place to have big pool parties with loud music, which suited us perfectly. It is a pleasant 25 min stroll to town with plenty of bars and restaurants (or 7 euro in a taxi). If you have a car and head east along the coast, there is some stunning scenery, especially if you take the sign to Cerro Gordo off the N340, it's quite a breath taking road and you are further rewarded near the end with the Restaurante Cerro Gordo which was perfect for taking in the stunning vistas with a cold beer (didn't try the food). Back to the villa, the views from the top terrace are beautiful and it was lovely to sit up there and have breakfast. If you prefer to stay at home all day and languish around the lovely pool playing with your I pad then it's perfect as the sun is in the garden all day until late in the evening and the wi-fi signal was great inside and out. There is a big gas bar-b-q on the bottom terrace (we didn't use it but I imagine that it would complete your day of rest perfectly). There is a big supermarket just down the road for all your supplies but a good tip if you are arriving late by car is to stop at the petrol station just off the motorway to pick up a few essentials such as milk. In summary, this was like a home from home (except much much nicer) and I would not hesitate to recommend to anybody looking for a holiday in a beautiful villa complete with with all your creature comforts and with the added bonus of your own private pool. I would suggest you rent it but, please, not for too long because we four are all desperate to go back there again sooner rather than later.

Easter Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and our 2 children had the good fortune of staying in this stunning property. We received a very warm welcome from a lovely lady (Rita). The villa is beautifully furnished throughout and immaculately clean. It had every convenience in the kitchen and throughout. The pool was lovely and all outside areas well maintained. The pool was fantastic as it got the sun all afternoon until sunset so perfect. You could not ask for nicer more homely, inviting accommodation than this. We all loved it and will definitely return if it is available. Huge thanks to the owners for everything, including the bubbly left for us in the fridge!

Wish it was ours!!

  • 4 of 5

My wife's dearest wish is to own a lovely Villa such as this one but as we can't the next best thing for us is to go there as often as we can. This was our second visit in 2013 and like coming home when Rita and Dave met us on arrival. We very much like staying in the El Capistrano village which we have been doing for over 13 years and only recently discovered this lovely detached villa with its own private swimming pool and sundeck. A real find for us and we will most certainly come back whenever we can. However, our next visit to Nerja at Easter coincides with Johan and his family staying in their villa so we have had to find another bolt hole at El Capistrano but hope to have the privilege of meeting Johan and Fredrika just to say hello.The villa itself is so well maintained and furnished with quality goods as you would expect from the owners Johan and Fredrika who spend their own family holidays at the villa. It is ideal for either a small family or just a couple like us although we did take another couple with us earlier in the year. We would certainly recommend the villa to our friends or relatives as it has everything you need for a truly great holiday.
