About David & Dorrie Lodge

We have been visiting Frigiliana for many years and absolutely love the village. We have been searching for a house in the village to which we can eventually retire and found this exceptional lovely property in March 2011. Until such time as we retire we are willing to share it with others by providing very comfortable holiday lettings. We strive to provide exceptional comfort in a rental property. Each time we visit we make improvements and add more touches to help make it a home from home for our guests. A lovely local couple look after the house for us and ensure that it is always prepared to a high standard for all our guests.

NOTE: Please double-check your e-mail address and phone number before submitting an enquiry as we cannot reply or contact you if these are incorrect.

Why David & Dorrie Lodge chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

The house is in a stunning location in the heart of a beautiful, peaceful but friendly 'white village' within very easy reach of the town of Nerja and many lovely beaches. If you just want to relax, there is no need to leave the village as it has everything you need including numerous good restaurants.

The village is steeped in history and retains it's Spanish character with many colourful festivals and is very welcoming to English speakers, especially if you are willing to try a little Spanish.

Lying on the edge of a mountainous national park it is a great base for lovely walks of varying degrees of difficulty in stunning scenery. It is also conveniently close to some fabulous beaches.

What makes this house unique

* A sunny haven of tranquility in a delightful typical White Village in Andalusia.

* A fantastic location on the edge of the national park for great walks in the mountains on your doorstep or down the river gorge.

* Lots of fantastic beaches within a fifteen minute drive or bus ride.

* Malaga Airport is only 45 minutes by motorway and the Alhambra at Granada is only around one and a half hours drive from the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A spacious, spotless, sympathetically restored village house with superb views over the village to Nerja. We had a fantasic 2 week holiday even though the weather was not brilliant and will return. Many thanks.

Linda and John, April 2013



It is quite an exceptional property and a wonderful location. - James, Feb 2013.



Our thanks for letting us rent your lovely house over Christmas and the New

Year. Everything was quite perfect, and we very much enjoyed everything.

The weather was very co-operative, and we spent many long hours enjoying the marvellous view from the upper terrace.

Sheila, Bob and family. January 2013



We had such a lovely holiday in Frigiliana - it truly is a special place, and a really unique and beautiful house. Thank you for allowing us to stay there - it felt like a real privilege to be right in the centre of the old town! Carolyn, Chris, Amber age 5 and Baxter age 4. November 2012

A beautiful property with views to die for.

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly pleased with our stay at this property. Unlike many village houses, it is spacious and full of light. The terraces are super generous and the views from each is breathtaking. It has been tastefully renovated and feels more like a much cared for home rather than a holiday let. The kitchen is great and much bigger than it looks in the photos. We would recommend this to friends without hesitation. A real gem and a credit to the owners.

Beautiful house, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful hillside villa last year and can't recommend it enough. We have two small children and they enjoyed the shade on the balconies and their lovely cool room. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful and were quick to respond to any queries we had. The hill is steep but all of us managed it without complaint! A thoroughly relaxing holiday had by all. We would definitely come again.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in this lovely house and the beautiful village of Frihiliana. We were a party of 6...myself and husband, son and his wife, and daughter and her boyfriend. The house is perfect for 3 couples as there are lots of areas spacious enough to spend time together but also the layout allows space to have 'down time'. All contact and queries with David and Dorrie were dealt with very promptly, making the booking process stress free. The house is perfect in every way. My favourite area was the top terrace! The wood burner in the lounge was very efficient and welcome on chilly Feb evenings. Carrying the logs up was a bit of a challenge but added to the fun! The BBQ on the upper terrace was great. We wrapped up warm and savoured the views. The kitchen is better equipped than mine at home and all bedrooms are very comfortable, with the added bonus of all being en-suite. I could go on but suffice to say we had the most memorable family holiday. We celebrated a birthday, a 60th birthday year and best of all a surprise engagement!

Thanks for the memories! I really hope we can return next year....maybe for the wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull time.

Accommodation was excellent.

Two teenagers were happy to have WiFi although we never turned on TV as when in house we found ourselves drawn to terraces.

Frigiliana is a beautiful village and we'll worth a visit.

Regards

Deborah

Fantastic, relaxing spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Frigiliana for a week, with our two children and my mother-in-law. The villa was absolutely fantastic, and had everything we needed. We cooked quite a bit when we were there, including using the Barbeque on the upper terrace and we always managed to find what we were looking for. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out and we did spend the majority of time relaxing on either the middle or upper terrace depending on the time of day. You could not beat the views and my favourite spot was having a cup of coffee on the middle terrace first thing in the morning with a view of the Spanish coast to the left and mountains to the right. My children felt comfortable very quickly in the property and loved the nearby community pool. There were also several nice family restaurants very close walking distance in the village. David and Dorrie were extremely helpful and responsive getting us information and answering any questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Beaches – there are 16 superb beaches all within half an hour by car.

Swimming - public open air swimming pool and sports centre in the village.

Walking - many well marked footpaths in the surrounding National Park countryside and guided walks of varying degrees can be arranged with a qualified English speaking guide in the village.

Tennis – courts for hire in Nerja.

Horse riding – can be arranged in the village.

Day trips – Granada, Cordoba or Seville are all within easy reach by car.

Travel:

The village has easy access to the Autovia del Mediterraneo motorway. Malaga airport is only 45 minutes away by car. Car hire is not essential as there is an excellent bus service to the village from Nerja.

Other coastal resorts within easy reach are Almunecar, La Herradura and Salobrena. The beach at La Heradura is particularly nice.

Distances:

The beautiful coastal resort town of Nerja is only 3 miles away by bus or car. The town has several beautiful beaches including the famous Burriana beach but there are many other fine beaches close by along this stretch of the coast with cafes, bars or restaurants on the beach. Further east along the spectacular rocky coast you may find secluded sandy beaches at the end of a dusty track.

Further Details:

Frigiliana is a charming old Moorish village dating back some 5000 years. It is still very much a living, working village and was recently named the prettiest village in Andalucia.

In the village there is a wide selection of very good Spanish restaurants and bars plus a variety of other restaurants including English, German, Italian, Indian and Polish! For an even wider choice, Nerja is just ten minutes away by taxi.

There are shops in the village for almost everything you could want, although they are not always easy to find. There are two banks (cash machines outside), post office, pharmacy, health shop, paper shop, butchers, bakery, fishmongers, several greengrocers, egg shop, flower shop, electrical shop, ironmongers, and several small general stores / supermarkets as well as several artisanal tourist shops on the main street. There is a market in the village on Thursdays and in nearby Nerja on Tuesdays.

Nerja has several large supermarkets and every other type of shop, and Malaga is within easy reach by bus or car for serious shopping.

Opening hours are generally from 10am until 2pm, then from 5pm until 9pm.

A few of the small stores open on Sunday. There is a 24 hour shop at the petrol station on the motorway junction for emergencies.

Parking is available at a small charge: At busy times of the year, parking around the village can be difficult. We have recently bought a parking space in the secure private car park beneath the market place in Frigiliana. I have to admit it is nice to not have to search for a space and also not having to get into a car like an oven! At present we have decided that parking is charged extra at £3 per day for the length of your stay for those that wish to use it. If you wish to use this facility, please let us know and add the appropriate amount to your final payment.

Booking Notes:
Changeover Day:
Saturday or Sunday - However, we will be as flexible as possible depending on adjacent bookings. Please enquire.
In order to ensure that the house is properly prepared, we require departure by 10:00am and access not before 4pm to allow for cleaning.
