Overview

About the property

In Nerja, Costa del Sol - quiet part of Fuentes complex with big pool, A/C, free Wifi/UK TV & garage, beach 200m, Balcon 10 min walk

As with much Andalucían architecture there is a Moroccan style to the grounds of Fuentes, with fountains and passages revealing unexpected glimpses of the sea. Antonio, the caretaker lovingly tends the exotic plants and orange trees around the complex. The pool is surrounded by lawn, where you can sunbathe. If you prefer, you can laze on our private terrace and still see the pool. Ours is one of only 3 apartments, to have triple aspect and there is an extra conservatory/breakfast room beyond the kitchen. The apartment is located well away from the road and restaurant noises and overlooks the sea (dolphins have been spotted, so take your binoculars!). You can walk to every part of Nerja: beaches, the Balcon de Europa, restaurants, tapas bars, cafes, the old town, supermarket, ATM, internet café. No need to worry about parking difficulties, when your car can be in our private lock up garage. Children and adults alike will love a ride on the tourist train or horse drawn carriages.

About Zelda Hill

We have been visiting Spain for many years and were struck by the charm of Nerja.The apartment ticked all our boxes of being very close to Nerja Old town, and beaches, having front line sea views, a garage and being situated in one of the best maintained complexes in Nerja.

We aim to visit Nerja about three times a year and have met a number of repeat visitors, some of whom have stayed longer than we do!

We are always interested in new recommendations from our visitors.

Catherine from the agents Menyber manages the apartment for us. She speaks English and Spanish and knows an army of tradesmen who she can call on in the rare event of a problem.

Zelda Hill purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Zelda Hill chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We chose Nerja as being head and shoulders above other towns along the southern Spanish coast. Its mountain backdrop, rocky coves, narrow streets and low-rise development in the historic centre give it a unique character. Despite being a holiday resort, it still feels predominantly Spanish and even in the low season nearly all bars, shops and restaurants remain open throughout, serving the local community. It is compact enough for any part of the town and its beaches to be reached by walking. In 5-10 minutes you can wander from the flat up to the Balcon de Europa to sip a Spanish coffee whilst watching the varied groups enjoying the sea and mountain views. If more energetic an interesting mostly off road jog is possible along the beaches and below the Roman viaduct to Maro.

What makes this apartment unique

We bought this apartment as it met all the pre-requirements we had set – easy walk to town, beaches and shops/restaurants, front line sea views, good sized swimming pool open all year, well kept secure complex, sunny aspect and a garage - to side step perennial parking problems in town. The apartment is one of only 3 to be situated on the end of Bloc A with a triple east-south-west aspect and an extra conservatory/breakfast room beyond the kitchen. Fuentes de Nerja is immaculately maintained by Antonio, the porteria, who is always so friendly and helpful and ensures that the complex retains its well-deserved reputation for being one of the best in Nerja.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

First visit to Nerja and loved it, The Apartment is in a great spot ,convenient for the Town. The complex is clean and well managed.

Only issues were the satellite tv was no use and the beds were a bit basic.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Joseph, for letting us know you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the TV, it is always best to contact our local agents and they will send a TV engineer to investigate and, if possible, fix. However for the last 3 years there has been no satellite coverage for UK TV in southern Spain. The only service now available is through the internet. We asked our agents to install the best system available. They have already twice changed providers, attempting to get a more reliable service. We want to change again to a new one that is reputedly now the best. However that firm’s installation for others has damaged decoration in the complex and the community administration will no longer let them in to do further installations! So we are stuck. Other apartments are in the same position. Hopefully it will be resolved soon, but matters are out of our hands. Regarding the beds, they are metal framed, both for hygiene and to leave space underneath for storage of suitcases. Our agents – who service many holiday properties throughout Andalucía and run a boutique hotel in Nerja – have just checked the mattresses and consider them to be in good condition. Simon and Zelda

Excellent property with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in this property and were assisted by Zelda and Simon from our first moment of booking right through to our last day. They provided all the information we required including getting transfers and keys picked up upon arrival.

The apartment is perfectly situated with all the amenities needed for our stay. Upon arrival we were met by honestly spectacular views of the sea and the pool! The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

The complex was very family friendly and quiet at nights with a pool guard on duty all day, everyday.

We were happy to find that we were within walking distance to everything... Shops, beach, bars and the Balcon.

I really couldn't find fault with this property and were sad to be leaving! We will definitely be booking here again in the future!

Lovely, well equipped apartment in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We went on holiday with two young children, and this apartment was great for us and had everything we needed. The views from the conservatory were beautiful, and we were even lucky enough to see dolphins! The urbanisation itself was very pretty and very well maintained with a good sized pool. All the other guests and residents were very friendly and considerate. We also loved being so close to the beach and restaurants - and the short walk to the Balcon was great, with lots of little shops and bars to enjoy along the way. We also managed two day trips to the Nerja caves and Frigliana which were very enjoyable. The caves in particular were like nothing we'd seen before and easy to get to using the cave train.

We did have a medical issue when we were on holiday when our 3 year old developed chicken pox! But the location off the apartment again helped, just a 10 min walk to the Rincon clinic which was private but not too expensive and arranged an appt with a paediatrician who supplied us with the drs note we needed. So we did spend quite a bit of time in the apartment but it was no problem!

We will definitely be back and would have no hesitation staying at this apartment again.

The property was in the best location and very well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Only one problem was the British television. Couldn't get it very often. Maybe 3 days overall over the 3 months. Did report and they did respond quickly but only worked until I switched the television on and off.

A lovely home with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We love this apartment, it was clean and well maintained. It is situated next to Playa Torrecilla, well situated to walk to where we wanted in Nerja. My husband and I were on holiday with our adult son and the apartment was a good size for the three of us, it feels really homely. The lounge/diner is a really good size, we loved the balcony with its views across the pool and the sea. The kitchen is really well equipped and it's views are fantastic. We loved sitting in the kitchen watching the sunrise at breakfast. Staying in January it was really good to have that indoor balcony/conservatory from the kitchen as it gave us all the views and warmth until it warmed up enough in the morning to sit on the outside balcony and that balcony was a lovely sun trap. As the kitchen is well equipped it was nice to have the option to do some cooking as well as going out to eat. It was the wrong time of year for us to try out the pool but it looked great and we really appreciated being such a short walk to the beach. The time flew by and we didn't want to leave, we hope to return.

Apartment and complex in a perfect position for beach and town.

  • 5 of 5

We were pumped up for a great holiday in Nerja and was not disappointed. Beach just a few minutes walk and a nice 10 minute stroll into Nerja town. We loved the friendly and laid back experience and the shops and restaurants didn't disappoint!

Would definitely recommend the apartment.
