About the property

Perfect for relaxing in tranquil surroundings, yet close to all amenities

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.

About Jane Hearn

I am a holistic therapist and live on the south coast of England with my husband and cat, Molly. I love travelling, and have always had a soft spot for Spain, 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 Gym, swimming, walking, flamenco dancing and, of course, sun-bathing.

Jane Hearn purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jane Hearn chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

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 to us. 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 resonable 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.

What makes this villa unique

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. We have small lawns and flower borders, and the place feels like home. It is light and airy, quite spacious, well equipped, and 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 also the convenience of the well stocked supermarket, just two minutes walk away. 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.

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.

A staircase allows access to the 1st floor where there is a spacious landing, and 2 en-suite bedrooms. The décor is light and airey and both bedrooms have double-glazed sliding doors to terrace/balcony. One of the many attractive features of this property is the wealth of terraces, balconies & garden areas that allow the direction of sun to be enjoyed for virtually the entire day. The lower level terraces and the orange tree provide shade from the afternoon sun while still providing the benefits of outdoor living. The property is managed by a British agent living locally. Outside: The villa is located in a secure and very private, walled garden. The front gate opens into a garden with small lawn, hibiscus, rose and other flower and shrub borders and table & chairs. From this garden, there are steps down to the pool area with flower beds, small areas of lawn and an olive and orange tree the latter usually providing abundant fruit from November to February. The garden wall to the rear of the property backs onto the green valley that runs down towards the sea. There are also numerous pots containing geraniums, weeping fig, yucca and hibiscus. The pool terrace receives sun throughout the day until early evening (about 7pm in mid summer). Sun loungers and parasol are provided. There is an outside cold shower to refresh yourself & to use before entering the pool to help keep it crystal clear for your enjoyment. The villa, pool & gardens are for the sole use of our guests. Utility Room: Outside courtyard for clothes drying. Iron & ironing board in cupboard. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are provided (please bring your own beach/pool towels). Weekly linen change.

Easy to find, parking outside, simple but spacious. Pretty garden & private pool

  • 4 of 5

Good location in Nerja - supermarket nearby. We took car down to Burriana beach or central town most days - 5 mins away. About hour drive to Granada for great day out - don't forget to get tickets in advance! Frigiliana is an absolutely beautiful hill top Moorish town about 20 mins drive away. We were lucky enough to enjoy the fantastic spectacle of San Isidro festival day on May 15; not to be missed! Restaurants & bars in older quarter of Nerja very good.

Very nice Villa, quite location, spacious with all the necessary facilities & a great pool

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday to unwind and recharge the batteries and this villa hit the mark. The pool was fantastic, made our holiday, being able to just jump in the pool when things became too hot, what a joy. Whilst dinning out most of the time, walking down to Barrera beach or taxi in to the centre of Nerja, we did also eat in; dinning on the balcony as the sun was setting, sharing a glass of wine. With the supermarket close by, it only took few minutes walk to pick up the essentials.

The Villa was nicely furnished, clean and spacious and with air-conditioning in the bedroom it really helped to ensure a good night’s sleep.

I would certainly recommend this Villa and will also look to return here ourselves.

Owner's Response: We are pleased our villa met your expectations. 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.

Fantastic villa in a quiet and peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
