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 accommodation in beautiful location,
I liked the village, for its ambience, it's history and opportunities for waliking in the area. Very friendly.
The house is located right next to the church in the market square. The shops and restaurants are all within a few minutes walking distance. The house is quite basic, however it had everything we needed, and it was lovely to sit on the roof terrace in the evenings and enjoy the views. It is very close to Nerja (about 12 mins by car). Real value for money.
Due to the price paid we were not expecting too much from this property but we were very happy with what we got. The village and the house consist of a great number of steps so it isn't for the infirm. House has a large hallway, bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, next floor is the lounge, next floor is the kitchen and then up again to the terrace. The property is a little tired but is exceptional value and is in the most perfect location being in the centre of the old town. We would definitely stay here again.
Good location, basic but acceptable accom
The house is in a great location overlooking Frigiliana, in the centre of the old town close to the church. Be aware that parking is a few minutes walk from the accommodation (and uphill), not a problem for us but worth noting, especially if you have a lot of luggage. House is furnished to a basic standard, though looking a little tired and could have been cleaner, but basics all provided and to an acceptable standard. Spending evenings on roof terrace was a bonus, looking at sunset, stars and beautiful view over the town and all the way down to coast. Slightly overlooked by other properties but not really an issue for us as other places seemed to be mostly unoccupied when we were there. Photos and description pretty accurate, note small bathroom. I would suggest that 2 people is enough for this property, you would struggle with 4 adults in the space. We did walking, went to the beach and some sightseeing, all made easier by hiring a car.
