Guestbook comments from the manager

The website did not lie. La Era Vieja is as beautiful as promised. Beautiful house with high-quality fittings, wonderful pool area and a kitchen equipped well above normal standard. ( we even found a Norwegian cheese grater!)

Ralph and Wilma have been very responsive and customer focused. keep up the good work, and continue to take care of the property and we'll be back!

Can't get enough of those views!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa was filled to capacity with our large party of 11 and was the perfect place for us to spend a week as a family celebrating a milestone birthday. I can honestly say it was the most memorable stay for all of us and we'd love to be back there again. The facilities on offer in the villa served our large group ideally; the games room was great for down time, as was the pool (which was used, every day, despite chilly February weather!). The newly installed barbecue outside was great for al fresco dining - and the facilities throughout the house were excellent, especially the high-spec kitchen which allowed us to cook for the whole party easily.

The villa is ideally situated between Nerja town and Frigiliana, accessible to both culture and amenities such as supermarkets and the beach. The area was also ideal for a day trip to Granada, which we drove to in about an hour. There are a selection of local markets throughout the week that we really enjoyed visiting - thanks to an excellent Guest Information book which gave us all sorts of tips to follow during our stay! Thanks also go to Wilma and Ralph, who were the most lovely, helpful hosts, it was a pleasure.

Amazing villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at La Era Vieja and would recommend it wholeheartedly, and all agreed we would love to come here again another time.

The photos in the listing are great, but they don't do this lovely villa justice - it's even better in reality. The spaces are wonderful - the BBQ area and courtyard is perfect for big evening meals, the sun lounge and terrace are lovely for breakfast, the games room with pool table is great for the evenings. The kitchen has a lovely big fridge with an ice-maker. There are lovely private terraces from every bedroom, and a big drying area for towels and swimming costumes. Everything is decorated and finished to a really high standard, and the owners have thought of absolutely everything you might need - from lighting under the umbrella of the huge table in the courtyard, to plastic wine glasses in the pool bar, washing machine (and detergent) in the utility room, a good collection of herbs and spices in the kitchen cupboards, and best of all - lots of books in the bookcases! It's all been so thoughtfully and tastefully supplied with everything you could want for a perfect holiday.

The pool is absolutely amazing, we've never come across such a well-designed pool shape, especially with a toddler. The shallow end is perfect for a small child to walk around in, with a lovely water feature in the middle. The middle section is shallow enough for sunbathing in the water, the deep end is deep enough for proper swimming, and the view from the infinity pool is stunning.

The pool bar is a stroke of genius, it's incredibly handy to have a fridge right there so you don't have to go back to the house for cold drinks! The pool area is really well stocked with lots of very good quality sun loungers, umbrellas and tables.

The villa is easy to find, an easy drive from Malaga airport, very close to Frigiliana and only a few minutes' drive from Nerja and all the supermarkets etc. Great location and fantastic views all around. The pool area feels very private, although we could sometimes hear conversations from the neighbouring villa.

Frigiliana is charming and has some lovely bars and restaurants, and we enjoyed a few visits to the beaches around Nerja, but to be honest the villa is so wonderful we spent the majority of our ten days there, relaxing around the pool all day and BBQing every night. A fantastic holiday and a really great villa.

Beautiful villa, stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

This truly is an amazing villa in a beautiful location - stylishly furnished, extremely well-equipped with spectacular views from every angle. It more than exceeded our expectations and was even better than the pictures! We particularly loved the outside areas - it was hard to drag ourselves away from the stunning infinity pool and we enjoyed some lovely evening swims too, with the pool lighting on. Frigiliana (which is very pretty and has lovely shops and restaurants) is a 10 minute walk away but more often than not, we stayed in and had a bbq in the lovely outdoor eating area, enjoying the tranquility of the area. Our older teenage children enjoyed the nightlife in Nerja (a 10 min drive or taxi ride), often coming back in the early hours! Wilma and Ralph went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect and give advice on the best places to visit in the area - the Nerja caves are a must see! We enjoyed the villa so much, we have booked again for next year!

A superb villa in one of the best locations

  • 5 of 5

The villa was nicer than we expected from the pictures. It was immaculately prepared and suited our party of 8 perfectly (2 adults and 5 kids from teenagers to toddler).

Pool is the nicest pool we have ever had in a villa and worked perfectly for our toddler as the smaller pool was the perfect depth for her to splash away in relative safety.

All mod cons including excellent wifi and 300 plus channels and a pool table! Perfect for the kids when they wanted some down time.

Lovely outside eating area and bbq. Lots of parking on an easy road access which is or can be difficult for this area.

Great property management from Wilma and Ralph. Thoroughly recommended. When we come again we shall certainly try and book this villa.
