Apartment in Frigiliana, Costa del Sol, Spain - Central 'Old' Town Location With All Amenities On Your Doorstep

This warm and welcoming ‘home’ is situated in the heart of the historic old town just below the famous Calle Real.

About the Owner

Scott and I both live and work in the village of Frigiliana. Scott is Spanish by birth and is originally from Nerja where we both previously lived. He has a Spanish mother and English father allowing him to have the advantage of both cultures. I am English and relocated to Nerja at the beginning of 2010 which is when I met Scott. I came to Nerja for many years on family holidays until every year I found I was spending more and more time here and finally I made the decision to move permanently. We both work in the local area and really enjoy the culture and lifestyle that Nerja & Frigiliana have to offer.

5* apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing apartment with views you could never grow tired of, either from the exceptional and expansive roof terrace or from both balconys. One off the gorgeous living room and the other off the 2nd bedroom. The apartment is beautifully decorated throughout and the lay out is fantastic with everything you could possibly need to have a great relaxing holiday! The owners Rachel and Scott were very helpful. Booking was so easy and Scott welcomed us when we arrived explaining everything and recommending some excellent restuarants in the village, which we tried and thoroughly enjoyed. The village is beautiful and we loved the peace and tranquility, although there is plenty places to explore just outside the village, making our holiday very enjoyable!

Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our holiday in this wonderful apartment. We were met by the lovely owners Rachael and Scott, both very friendly and helpful and always at hand if we should need anything. The apartment is beautifully decorated and has a fantastic roof terrace offering amazing views. It is very well equipped and in a central location. We have been to Frigiliana numerous times and this apartment is the best we have stayed in. I would highly recommend it and we will definitely book again when we return. Thank you Rachael and Scott.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastically comfortable property in a beautiful village. Recently returned from a family holiday in this apartment and can't recommend it highly enough. Spotless tastefully decorated and well equipped it met all our holidays needs. The roof terrace was very spacious and we were able to entertain friends comfortably there before moving on to local restaurants. The Mirador was a favourite both for lunch and dinner. Rachael and Scott organised taxi transfers from Malaga to the apartment and due to our late arrival were very accommodating in doing a basic shop for us.

Great Time / Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a fantastic 11 day break in El Capricho, Frigiliana. The apartment was first class accommodation - well equipped and beautifully presented in a comfortable, contemporary style. The roof terrace was a delight. It was very spacious, well furnished and afforded wonderful views over the countryside to the sea. After a gruelling day on the beach or strolling round the village it was a delight to return and relax on the terrace.

The apartment is ideally located in beautiful old village and very convenient for enjoying all that Frigiliana has to offers.

A special thanks to Rachael and Scott who met us on arrival and for their preparation of this wonderful accommodation. We loved the apartment and the village and hope to return in the very near future.

From the Owner

After having living in Frigiliana ourselves for the last 18 months we were itching to purchase our own little piece of the village when we came across this lovely penthouse. Happy in our current property in the village the penthouse was the perfect investment for us and we enjoy renting the property to other lovers of Frigiliana on a holiday basis. The penthouse could not be in a better location and perfectly placed for easy access to the old quarter of Frigiliana.
