Fabulous apartment in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely and spacious and really well equipped. I loved pottering in the kitchen cooking breakfast every morning and the views from the kitchen window are an instant tonic. Everything is immaculate and spotlessly clean. The terrace is huge and runs in an l-shape along the side of the apartment. There is a large table for outdoor dining and a smaller bistro table and chairs in the corner where we sat and drank our coffee whilst enjoying the view down to the sea. Location is perfect, a short stroll into town - either old part or the balcon. We ate in the restaurant right by the apt block a couple of times called the Taberna De Espartero, and thought the food and ambience in there was the best of those we tried. Kate, the owner is really great and makes all the pre arrival planning from the point of booking really easy and hassle free. We have stayed in quite a few places in Frig and we were really impressed by La Fuente. Loved everything! Thank you Kate for letting us rent your lovely home. Tanya

A lovely apartment in an authentic white washed Spanish town

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Frigiliana staying at Kate’s apartment, although to be honest we spent most of our time out making the most of the lovely warm April weather! - Frigiliana is a traditional Spanish town and has lovely narrow streets with lots of places to eat and drink, one of our favourite places was sitting outside in the church square which is less than 10 minutes walk from the apartment, I recommend the sangria! Having a hire car we made the most of it and visited Granada and the Alhambra Palace, an amazing place and understandably one of the most visited sites in Spain, so much history - a top tip if you do plan on visiting though book your tickets well ahead as they only let so many people in per day.

Thanks again Kate for sharing your apartment with us, we will be back!

Lovely apartment in a great town

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment in a great authentic town. We stayed in April made use of the swimming pool (or the kids did!) and the tennis courts. We did some lovely walks directly from the apartment and visited the coast a couple of times. We had a lovely relaxing holiday which we all needed. The only slight downside was the noise from the road but it really didn't ruin the week we had there.

Best apartment in Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

We spend an amazing week in Kate’s apartment in Frigiliana with our one-year old son. The apartment has a great location with amazing views! It is very kid-friendly and safe, and the place is also very well equipped. There are two swimming pools, one being a kids’ swimming pool which was great for our son. There’s plenty parking, although it can be tricky to get a spot at times when a lot of day-visitors are in town. HIGHLY recommended, and hope to be back real soon!

Lovely Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this apartment and found the location an excellent base from which to explore the old town of Frigiliana. We found the listing description for the apartment very accurate and were pleasantly surprised by how large the apartment and the ‘L’ shaped terrace actually were. The residential complex is also very attractively landscaped and private with some lovely facilities and steps and paths leading through to the old town streets and restaurants.

The property was very clean and well maintained and the facilities more than met all of our requirements.

I would not hesitate to use this apartment again or to recommend it to a relative or a friend.

Fabulous property, charming town

  • 5 of 5

We’ve not long returned from a ten day stay at this property and can’t recommend it highly enough.

The apartment is cool, beautifully presented, very well equipped and much bigger than it looks in the photos. Every need has been taken care of, from cooking utensils to pool and beach equipment, to children’s entertainment - my three year old spent many happy hours drawing and crafting, thanks to the big tin of pens & pencils which had been left! We really couldn’t have asked for more.

The balcony was a wonderful place to sit and relax and, again, much bigger than it looked in the photos.

The pool area is very well maintained and never too busy and the views from every angle are fabulous. It was a bonus having the smaller kids pool too, which was always empty.

Frigiliana is simply breathtaking and having such lovely bars and restaurants on our doorstep was wonderful. All of the information and tips in the welcome pack were much appreciated, particularly for the local restaurants. Kate was a terrific host – very responsive to all communications and really a pleasure to deal with.

I feel like I’ve left part of my heart in Frigiliana so we will definitely be rebooking this property – can’t wait to come back!

There are several beaches in nearby Nerja, including the famous Burriana beach, all approx. 10 minute drive away. There are also many other wonderful beaches along the coastal road, all worth exploring.


Malaga Airport is 60 kilometres away on a direct motorway link, approx. 45 mins drive. Local & regional public transport is reliable and cheap. Car hire is advisable for more independent travel/exploration of the wider Andalusia area.


2 Minute walk to the historic village for grocery and craft shops, bank, chemist, post office, gym, outdoor swimming pool and a wonderful choice of restaurants and bars. There are four large supermarkets in Nerja, and a Lidl is about 5 mins drive away.

Further Details:

The village is surrounded by a beautiful, protected National Park and is very popular with walkers from across Europe.

10 minute drive to Nerja for beaches and supermarket shopping.

Granada - Alhambra 1 1/2 hours

Seville - 3 Hours
