Pleasant stay in a cozy and comfortable environment

  • 5 of 5

We just spent several weeks in this apartment and we have nothing but positive comments to offer. It felt as if we were at home. The appartment is very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped so cooking on a daily basis was no problem. There is an ample supply of towels and linen as well as everything else you need to carry on with your daily chores. The internet, tv and radio was greatly appreciated. The location is excellent with services and restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. In summary everything is exactly as described by the owner. Making the reservations was also very easy with quick and prompt responses as well as a follow up email to ensure everything was fine with the apartment upon our arrival. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend this rental.

Excellent accommodation for a winter sun holiday. All facilities provided including heating for those cool nights and a washing machine to keep on top of things on a longer break.

Fantastic Holiday - Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment met all our needs throughout our fantastic holiday in the Moorish Village of Frigiliana. The apartment is beautifully designed, spacious, very clean, and comfortable with a fully functional kitchen. We loved the provision of excellent quality bed linen and towels. The apartment is ideally located close to the bars, restaurants,(several of which are coeliac friendly) shops, and Bus Stop in Frigiliana. The information folder provided by the owner was an extremely helpful guide on things to do in the location. This superb apartment contributed enormously to our fantastic holiday, and we would highly recommend this apartment to others. We will be back. Val and Phil.

Perfect for Families or Couples, Clean and Spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The owner and the lady who looks after the apartment in Frigiliana are so accommodating. You could not ask for better communication and service. Nothing was a problem for them and a lovely touch with a cold bottle of wine waiting in the fridge when we go there. The old part of Frigiliana is beautiful and so many lovely restaurants to eat in. The pool in the village is very clean and lovely for an afternoon dip. A car is recommended for the stay and there are so many places to visit and see. The only downside for me is that the apartment does not have air conditioning but I knew that before we booked it, the owner told us before we went and it is in the manual on how to keep the apartment cool, it does work but I think air conditioning would be a benefit in the main bedroom. The kitchen has all the equipment you need to stay in a cook. And yes despite no air conditioning I would stay again as you could not ask for more helpful and accommodating owners. The apartment is spacious and clean, lovely. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Rob & Pam for such a lovely review, and glad you all had a great time in the village and wider area. I gather its been a particularly warm August, and although not everyone likes fans, the stand-alone fans and timer-switches in the bedrooms can help on really warm nights. I'm glad it didn't detract too much from your overall enjoyment of the apartment and Frigiliana and look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again at some stage, many thanks. John

Beautiful apartment in one of the nicest places we have visited. Apartment is very modern, clean and contains everything needed with extras. Very spacious and in a lovely and quiet area of town but only minutes walk from restaurants bars and shops. Will definitely be back. Many thanks John and to the lovely helpful Victoria.
