Villa close to Burriana Beach, Nerja - Quiet Location, Overlooking A Green Valley That Runs Down To The Sea. A Perfect Getaway
Located in little Pueblo Jerez, this villa is very charming & offers peaceful & relaxing accommodation while being close to all amenities. Its gardens are full of colour & the birdsong is very enchanting. The villa has two large terraces/balconies and has garden to the front, side and rear. The large pool is surrounded by terrace for relaxation. The traditional town of Nerja, with its shops, restaurants & bars is about 20 minutes walk away and has several beaches, coves & spectacular cliffs. Nerja has retained much of its charm & is a popular destination for both Spanish and foreign tourists. The Almijara Mountains further inland can be seen clearly from the villa. Views towards the sea complete the panorama. The motorway behind Nerja provides easy access to Malaga, Granada and the ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada. The award-winning Moorish town of Frigiliana is a short drive into the mountains. The famous Nerja Caves are a 5 minute drive away.
Top Traveller Review
The pool terrace and gardens have recently been refurbished, with a particular feature being the astroturf.around the pool. Peace and tranquillity can be found here, even during the peak season - usually!
It's lovely to spend a balmy evening in and around the pool, the pool and garden lighting enhancing the surroundings.
About the Owner
I am a beauty and holistic therapist and live on the south coast of England with my husband and two cats. I love travelling, and have always had a soft spot for Spain, and especially Nerja, which is my favourite holiday destination. I am very house-proud and meticulous, and enjoy home improvements, interior design and gardening. My other hobbies include keep-fit, swimming, walking, flamenco dancing and, of course, sun-bathing.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our 4th stay in your villa just as much as the last three. Such a comfortable and relaxed villa with beautiful clean pool, we felt very at home.
4.7 based on 15 holidaymaker reviews
This villa is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. The peacefulness in the surrounding area and views were awesome. The pool great during the day and looked beautiful at night.
Fantastic villa in a quiet and peaceful location.
The villa was as described, large rooms, very light and airy, with a fantastic well kept pool and gardens.
The property was very clean and well maintained.
The owner kept in touch from booking the holiday to us arriving home and was very quick to respond with any queries.
Our friends joined us on our second week and were also impressed with the villa.
We would and have recommended this villa to our friends and family.
Nerja is a very nice place and we have visited many times, every year we find new restaurants to try and this year was no exception. Also the Tapas trails are fun and a good way of sampling small dishes. The weather this June was fantastic.
My husband likes to walk and this year walked the river walk along the Rio Chillar, Nerja following the Rio Higueron to Frigiliana the views were spectacular.
A Perfect Retreat
Having spent 3 nights in the lovely city of Malaga beforehand, this villa provided the perfect retreat to kick back and relax for the next week. The location is perfect - providing excellent balcony views, privacy with just a short walk from the beaches and nearby Nerja old town.
The villa itself is of a very high specification and was immaculately clean. All amenities were provided making the place literally a home-from-home. The pool, poolside and surrounding gardens are also exception.
A definite 5 star!!
Scott and Claire.
A really magical villa
I cannot recommend this property highly enough. In a quiet and green setting, it's the perfect place to relax. Our kids loved the pool and the garden and we loved sitting on the balconies to paint and drink wine and just enjoy the sun and the birdsong. We came without a car and found that everything could be done on foot. Town is a little walk away but the supermarket (virtually next door) has everything you need in the way of food and drink. The house is beautifully furnished - with a really well equipped kitchen - and we loved the cupboard of DVDs, books and games. We hope to go back very soon.
Lovely villa, well equiped and in a great location
This is a beautiful villa in great location. 10 minutes walk from Burriana beach and 20 minutes from the town centre. There is an amazing orange tree in the garden.
From the Owner
“We have been visiting Nerja since about 1990. We first wanted to buy a place in Frigiliana, in the hills above Nerja, but soon realised that proximity to Nerja itself, & especially its beaches were paramount. There is a 'buzz' in Nerja that springs from the fact that it is a favoured location amongst the Spanish, as well as with foreign tourists. Its a traditional town, with very little high-rise, & there is a huge choice of restaurants & bars. We have a short list of favourites that serve excellent food at good prices. We spent years looking for our ideal villa; it had to tick all of our boxes. Here, in Pueblo Jerez, we found our dream home.”
Activity and Interests
The Blue Flag Burriana Beach is 10-15 min walk via small streets with plenty to see on the way.
Burriana is the largest of Nerja's beaches & is backed by sandstone cliffs at its ends. Behind the central part of the beach are restaurants & bars, offering fish & paella just off the sand. The other beaches of Nerja to the west are smaller and are mostly edged by cliffs & are very picturesque. The 'balcon' of Nerja town juts into the sea & provides spectacular views of the coastline to the east.
Malaga airport is approximately 1 hour drive from Nerja. Alternatively, a bus or train can be caught from the airport to Malaga bus station where there is a frequent bus service to Nerja and the caves. The total journey by public transport can take up to 2.5 hours, depending upon timings. A taxi from the airport to Nerja costs about 70E. Car hire is not essential though will allow you to explore the whitewashed towns nestling in the mountains immediately inland more easily.
Nerja town with its famous 'Balcon de Europa' is approx 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk away.
Malaga town is approximately 45 minutes by car or 90 minutes by bus and has many attractions.
Granada and its Alhambra Palace is 1.5-2 hours drive while the coastal hill town of Salobrena with its ancient castle and museum is approx 1 hour drive.
The whitewashed award-winning mountain village of Frigiliana is approx 20 minutes by car or can be accessed by local bus service.
Nerja is located very close to Natural Parks with their established walks through lush valleys, gorges & rural scenery. There is a horse-riding centre west of Nerja with excursions to the Almijara mountains. Other pursuits include include hiking, caving, mountain biking, kayaking & canyoning. Scuba diving can be organised from Burriana Beach. The famous caves at Maro are among the most popular of Spain's natural attractions. There are facilities in Nerja that offer Spanish language & Flamenco dance classes & several bars provide live Spanish guitar music & dancing. Nerja town is 5 mins by car. There are restaurants & hotels within 3-5 minutes walk from the villa that provide evening entertainment for non-residents, including weekly flamenco shows. Tennis courts & paddle are about 5 minutes walk away. The nearest banks are in Nerja town & there are money-changing & cash-point facilities in the local hotels & at Burriana Beach. The nearest supermarket is about five minutes walk away. WiFi is available at the hotel on the main road 3 minutes walk away & there are several sports bars within walking distance. There are weekly markets & car boot sales (Tuesdays & Sundays respectively) & a public swimming pool close to the supermarket, again within walking distance. Day trips can be organised to Malaga, Marbella, Gibraltar, Ronda, Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, Almeria & the Alpujarras. There is an aquapark at Torre del Mar, just along the coast to the west, & the coves to the east of Maro accessed via the old road offer secluded beaches. There is also plenty of local historical interest, including the now disused sugar factory & the Roman aquaduct between Nerja & Maro. The picturesque 17C church of El Salvador located in the square off the Balcon is popular for weddings, for both Spanish &, more recently, foreign couples.
For animal-lovers the Nerja Donkey Sanctuary is on the western side of the town, housing not just donkeys, and has an entrance fee of a bag of carrots.

From the Owner
“The property is quiet, peaceful, away from busy traffic, and yet within walking distance to everything we need. We feel safe here. We get plenty of sun as well as a seasonal supply of oranges and lemons. We have small lawns and flower borders, and the place feels like home. It is light and airy, quite spacious, with interesting views. We like the fact that we can walk a hundred yards or so up the road to one of our favourite restaurants, and amble a little further to the supermarket. Most of all we like the natural beauty of our surroundings: the flowers in the garden; the mountains behind us; the beautiful seascapes and the mix of cultures. We love to listen to the birds and watch the swallows as they fly like spitfires around the back garden. PS (14/01/13) Oranges-sweet, ripe & falling!”
