Great apartment in a super location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this apartment. It was very well equipped, a real home from home. The beds were comfortable and the linen good quality and in abundance. Being on the main street in the 'new town' made for easy access to all the local amenities and we enjoyed watching daily life around us. The heating made for a most comfortable winter break. WiFi signal was strong and consistent. Not much room for improvement here, and we both look forward to a return visit. Thank you John, and Lynne locally. A bientot.

Lovely apartment in beautiful village

  • 4 of 5

Spacious apartment with large lounge and two good sized bedrooms. Spare room for storage of luggage etc with spare towels, sheets . Bed comfortable. Very clean and tidy. John very helpful with quick response to any questions & security deposit returned as promised. Easy to get to even by public transport 3 stops on train from airport,then bus to Nerja & one last bus to Frigiliana. Village is lovely with beautiful views .Village is hilly but worth the effort to wander through the narrow streets. My only very minor issue is lack of outdoor space otherwise would have given 5 star review.Brian

We really loved our stay in Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to our host John we had a wonderful stay in Frigiliana. Everything he had described about the appartment and the surroundings was correct. Parking possibilities were very good; seldom we parked more than 25 meters from the entrance. The equipment inside was more than enough.

And when there was a small incident, such as a broken cover inside the freeze, John delivered a brand new freeze within 24 ours (although he was in England!).

So we were very happy about our choice to stay in that appartment. If you want to stay close to Nerja, in a "white moorian village" choose this place.

Book now!

  • 5 of 5

A well presented light and airy apartment in an unspoilt part of Spain.

All rooms are spacious with one master bedroom and another twin room. All the amenities you can want , including hairdryer and washing machine. The decor is clean and simple with overhead fans. No discos or night clubs but lovely local restaurants and family run bars that welcome children.

Nerja is about 15 mins away but didn't make it that far as only a short hop.

Wonderful time spent admiring the white washed house's whilst slowly climbing the mountain.

Very pretty and will book for longer next time.

Take flat shoes with grips on!😁😁

Loved it!
