Fabulous time, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location in the heart of the village, the apartment was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need. Excellent restaurants all within walking distance so no need to go into Nerja. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment. Hope to visit again soon.

Great apartment in beautiful Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 2 toddlers. We really enjoyed our stay in Kate's spacious and well appointed apartment. There is a big sunny balcony to enjoy and relax on. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous restaurants. The Taberna a 2 minute walk to the right of the apartment felt like an authentic Spanish place with great food and wine. Frigiliana itself is an amazing place. A very pretty little traditional town set amongst the natural beauty of the mountains and modern enough to cater for most tourist needs.

A great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment and Frigiliana. We are a family of four and the apartment suited us brilliantly. Clean, spacious, great facilities and a lovely outside space with wonderful views.

We used the pool quite a lot and even though it was shared by lots of other apartments, it never got too busy.

Perfect for exploring the town, with lots of amazing shops and places to eat. We also went to the local beaches, loving the beach near Maro, although a bit of a nightmare to park, the beach and sea were amazing.

We would love to visit again. Thank you Kate for helping us have such a great holiday.

This property has everything you need for a relaxing stay in the Old town of Frigiliana. The views from the balcony are stunning over the mountains down to the sea.

The apartment is conveniently located and gives you a wonderful feel for a Spanish village.

The pool, most days, was all to ourselves which my kids loved too! It is also clean, well kept, with convenient toilets beside it (useful for 3 and 6 yr old kids!). I also loved that it wasn't overlooked by any apartments or buildings, very private.

The kitchen was fantastically equipped as other reviewers had commented.

Kate's attention to detail in the welcome pack was fab on the first few days to get our bearings of the local surroundings, restaurants and walks.

My parents who are in 60's and 70 thoroughly enjoyed the stay too. Great apartment for all ages.

We intend to return it was that fab!!

Many thanks and congrats to the owners for a stunning property.

Attention to detail in the most perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Very simply - Kate has thought of everything! Communication was prompt and constant to ensure everything was sorted. (It was a huge bonus we live just 10 minutes apart and were able to meet face to face)!

The area itself is a greek- looking village up the mountains just a short bus ride away from the beach. Whilst we spent most of the time up here, we did also venture to the beach on a few of the days. If you do this, be prepared for intense heat with little shade depending on which one you go to! As sun worshippers this didn't bother us at all but would need elements of preparation with little ones.

The locals in the village are friendly, polite and very very sweet. It is the perfect get away to somewhere for local wine and peace. Kate has thought of all the tiny details - even down to providing washing detergent, pegs and copious hangers!! The small details like the heart shaped curtain hooks were just lovely and made it a real home from home. The apartment was spotless on arrival and even had a bottle of cold water in the fridge which was heaven sent. The addition of a complex only pool meant we had it to ourselves all week!

Although there are some English here, the area has 'real locals', cobbled streets, little hidden restaurants, galleries and bodegas. Perfect for photographers!

Kate has left a wonderful selection of recommendations of restaurants and tips but to add to this we found our favourites to be

El Mirador - Seemingly the very very top of the village. Beautiful views and absolutely fantastic food. It is the 'fine' dining restaurant with less than maybe 20 tables. This was also recommended to us by friends who had previously been and it did not fail to live up to expectations. Recommend for a special night.

La Tahona is known for its tapas. This is a very sweet family run restaurant with a terrace. If you are able to get to the terrace with one tiled table for 2 you will have the views to yourself. The owner was also more than happy to amend their set menu for food allergies that I have and apologised for keeping us waiting a few minutes whilst he 'tended to his cows.' Having fully adopted the Spanish way of life we hadn't even realised!

The Garden restaurant is the row below El Mirador and has a moroccan style vibe. Very very good lamb and staff!

I would definitely recommend both Frigiliana and Kate to friends and family and will certainly look to return myself too. Thank you for a wonderful week!
