About the property

House in Frigiliana, Costa del Sol, Spain - Peaceful Location, Less Than An Hour From Malaga Airport

Set in the heart of an old Andalucian Village, less than an hour from Malaga Airport with regular flights from all the major UK airports, and only a short drive or bus ride to Nerja, Frigiliana is one of the most picturesque Andalucía ‘White Villages’. This small house is filled with character and charm. The village is a maze of narrow, cobbled streets lined with white-washed houses and best explored on foot as there is very limited access by car. The old historical centre of Frigiliana, distinctively Moorish in appearance and design, is a labyrinth of narrow, winding streets and alleyways. Exploring these narrow streets you will discover many small shops selling local products and artefacts. There are many bars and restaurants throughout the village. Situated in the Almijara, Tejeda and Alhama mountains its history has been recorded way back into the 16th Century. The hill overlooking the village, El Fuerte, was the scene of the final battle, and defeat, of the Axarquia Moors in their rebellion of 1569. On top of the hill are a few remains of the old fort from which it is said that many Moors threw themselves from it rather than be captured by the Christians. The rio Higuerón runs in the valley below the town, the walk down to it offers stunning views of the valley and the town and is a wonderful place for a nature ramble or picnic.

No frills house in need of some care.

  • 3 of 5

As everyone has already said this house is very basic and in need of decorating and updating but this is reflected in the price.

Even so there were no kettle and toaster when we arrived I had to ring the agents to bring them they said they didnt realise they were not supplied! the iron was also not working and kept blowing all the fuses.All appliances and equipment should be checked before tenants arrive.

This house is up 36 steps directly behind the church there are also 2 flights of steep stairs inside the house so you really need to be fit to stay here especially in the heat.

The ground floor on the photos shows a ground floor twin bedroom, and as you step through the front door another bedroom with a futon, this is now a hall.These photos need updating.

The bathroom has plenty of hot water but a very small shower so if you are tall watch your head!

Living room with bed settee and Juliette balcony is on the 1st floor.

2nd floor is a fair sized kitchen which is quite a trek from the front door with bottles of water and shopping.Old style fridge with icebox ,if you put washing in machine on 40 degrees on setting M it will not spin so turn dial to D for spin cycle.

The roof terrace is small with only one sunbed usable the other broken,also no base for the parasol of which there are 3 all in a state of disrepair ,as someone has previously said there needs to be a bamboo roof over half the terrace.

The views from the roof are spectacular and with some attention this could be a lovely house in a beautiful village with lots of bars and restaurants and some good value little supermarkets with local produce.

Market day is Thursday 9-2 at the bottom of the village in front of bar Virtudes,bus to Nerja only takes 10 mins and is only one euro and very reliable.This was my 3rd visit to Frigiliana and im sure it wont be my last .

In the heart of Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

Great base for exploring Frigliana, located on one of the most stunning streets in a village famed for its picturesque charm. Theres plenty of room for two, the house is quite spacious with all the basics that you require for your stay. The views from the rooftop sundeck are fantastic and you aren't overlooked. Really the perfect place to stay to enjoy Frigiliana.
