Stayed here for one week from 10th June, excellent communication with Kate and received our deposit back within 3 days, very good directions for people who may not have visited this area before, we found the complex very secure, clean and well maintained, visited the lovely pool, which has sun beds, parasols, showers and toilets. Parking was never a problem on the street outside, despite there being a four day fiesta on whilst we where there.

The apartment is located on the lower ground floor and lifts are available for people who may struggle with stairs. We found the tastefully furnished apartment to be very clean, nice bed linen, towels and tea towels, it is also very well equipped, we are keen cooks and found the kitchen had a great range of kitchen equipment, lots of extras provided, cling film etc and a good range of cleaning products, loved the view from the kitchen window! The utility room also has a good range of holiday extras, beach towels, parasols and chairs which came in really handy.

Nice outside balcony which we used for dining, large table and 6 chairs and an umbrella which was handy because it was so hot!

Visited lots of bars and restaurants in the village, our favourites were Al Fuenta and the Garden restaurant( well worth the climb) in Nerja our favourite is Julie and Valerie's. We also completed the Rio Chillar walk, this took us 6 hours in total but had a fantastic experience.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and hope to return soon.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this apartment early May 2017, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean, spacious and well-appointed with lovely communal grounds, in a secure complex. Close proximity to all the local amenities, bars and restaurants. The owners were very obliging and great to deal with. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment, and would definitely stay here again.

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.

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
