JOHN ANDREWS purchased this apartment in 2012

Why JOHN ANDREWS chose Frigiliana

We first discovered Frigiliana in 2001 and fell in love with its beauty and friendly nature. The local residents go out of their way to welcome guests to what is essentially their home village. Quite justifiable planning controls have restricted building works around the village leaving more peaceful surroundings than some of the nearby coastal resorts. That said, there are ample bars and good quality restaurants to enjoy traditional and generic menus, and a number of quaint, well stocked fresh produce shops.

What makes this apartment unique

The local climate and surrounding countryside are huge attractions for us. We enjoy also the nearby towns and cities and enjoy travelling to places such as Seville and Granada.

It does get extremely hot in Frigiliana and we would not recommend taking any apartment or villa without air-conditioning, particularly if your family has young or elderly members.

The mornings are especially beautiful; take breakfast on the terrace balcony, take in the fresh Andalucian air and breathtaking views........wonderful!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for 10 days in this apartment and loved it. It was very central and had great views out over the countryside and down to the sea. The apartment itself had everything you could need, a well equipped kitchen, air con, satellite TV and a large balcony with table and chairs great for eating, having a glass of wine or just enjoying the beautiful views. The pool area is just a few minutes walk from the apartment and although we didn't use it much, as we prefer the beach, it was very quiet and well maintained with lots of loungers available. Frigiliana itself is a lovely village with lots of narrow streets and nooks and crannies to explore. We spent several mornings just wandering around the village, having a coffee and watching the world go by. There are lots of lovely restaurants hidden away throughout the village. Our favourites were Al Fuente which unfortunately is closing shortly and La Taberna del Sacristan. We also liked El Conventillo.There are also some nice walks in the surrounding area, along by the river bed or through the countryside. Parking is on street and we were mostly lucky in securing a space not too far from the apartment. Overall it is an ideal apartment in a lovely area of Spain. We would love to go back sometime and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending to family or friends.

Excellent apartment with beautiful views,

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time in frigiliana, this was our third visit but this was the best apartment we have stayed in so far, we would definitely book again in the next few years. The apartment had everything we needed and we thought the kitchen was bigger than the pictures showed it to be. Air conditioning was a good bonus but the best thing about the apartment is the balcony / terrace it's nice and spacious with brilliant views over the valley and olive groves. We found it so relaxing sitting out there listening to the sound of birds and people walking by. I especially like the horse and carriage going by every evening to give people tours of frigiliana. We wouldn't hesitate in booking again and John's communication with us was always quick. Thanks for letting us stay at your apartment.

Beautiful village and our favourite accommodation during our 3 weeks in Spain

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Frigiliana and at this wonderful apartment. Located centrally in the old village it is perfectly located with only a minimum of stairs (maybe 20?) to get to the front door. We travelled in August and despite warnings of how hot it would get, we acclimatized well and found the warmth of the area to be great. The apartment is fully air conditioned as chilly as you'd like. A huge selection of english satellite tv and movie compliments the well furnished unit. During our two week stay we so loved exploring the town and it became a second home for us and the kids to relax after a hectic travel schedule in France and northern Spain. Frigiliana is very safe and we felt comfortable allowing our children to explore on their own (ages 12 and 14) during day or night. John was very accommodating to all of our requests including our approximate arrival time required as we drove from Barcelona straight to Frigiliana and couldn't accurately estimate our arrival time. Email communication prior to our trip was excellent with replies generally within a few hours depending on time zone differences (we're on the other side of the world). Apologies to John and Miranda for not better setting ourselves up with an international cell phone plan. We usually travel without a phone on vacation to disconnect for a while from the rest of the world!

Thanks again John for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. We loved it!

Just returned from a wonderful and relaxing 9 day honeymoon in this apartment.

All communication with both owners and manager Miranda has been brilliant. Comprehensive information was provided by the owners before arriving making our journey in flawless.

The apartment itself is situated at the foot of the "old town" with steps leading to beautiful gardens, small artisan shops, bars and restaurants (The Garden Restaurant is amazing and well worth a visit)

The apartment was very well equipped with everything considered, even down to spare light bulbs and a first aid kit. The shower is amazing and the air conditioning was essential on some of the hotter days. Also the free wifi was extremely helpful for looking up local attractions and places of interest, also very helpful if you are travelling with children.

The swimming pool is a two minute walk away and is securely gated, clean, well maintained and an asset to the apartment.

Little touches for our honeymoon were gratefully received , cava and flowers on the bed provided by the manager Miranda.

Really enjoyed exploring Frigiliana and sampling the tapas bars in Nerja, beautiful beaches, scenery and Spanish hospitality.

Fabulous !!!! Hope to return next year for our anniversary.

The beautiful resort of Nerja with its numerous beaches and sea-front restaurants can be reached in 10 minutes by car or the regular Frigiliana to Nerja bus. There are several walking routes from Frigiliana to Nerja, most notably the spectacular Rio Higueron walk following the river from Frigiliana to the coast which takes around 2 hours.


Malaga airport is 45 minutes away by car and Granada airport is a little further, 1 hour 20 minutes. Car hire is recommended but not essential. Driving between cities is comfortable and, generally, congestion free.

The local bus network is excellent, inexpensive and runs regularly between Frigiliana and Nerja. Frigiliana is easily reached from Malaga airport. From Nerja buses run to all towns along the coast and further afield to Granada, Seville and Cordoba.


Nerja is 4 miles away as are the spectacular Nerja Caves. Other resorts along the coast are easily reached, Torrox is 10 mins away, Torre del Mar and Almunecar 25 mins, Granada and the Alhambra Palace are 1 hour 20 mins away and the beautiful historical cities of Seville and Cordoba 2 hours.

Further Details:

Frigiliana is sprinkled with many friendly bars and restaurants, numerous local grocery shops (some within 2 minutes' walk), including fishmongers, bakers and cake shops, souvenir shops and numerous shops selling clothing, leather, jewellery and locally made food and wines. There are three banks in the village and very close to the apartment is the sports centre with various activities and classes, a modern gym and between June and September, a large outdoor swimming pool opens.

A weekly market is held in the centre of Frigiliana on Thursday’s. Several large supermarkets can be found in Nerja including a weel positioned Lidl about half-way between Frgiliana and Nerja; a huge shopping complex 'El Ingenio' is located at Velez Malaga next to the motorway exit to Torre del Mar, 20 minutes away.

Next to 'El Ingenio' can be found the nearest water park. Further afield, Malaga is excellent for shopping, in particular the famous 'El Corte Ingles' department stores.
