About Sarah Braithwaite

We bought this apartment two years ago to holiday as a couple and with our family of older teenage children. It works on all fronts as a quiet relaxing bolt hole for us as a couple and also has enough going on to be a hit with the children when we're all there.

Sarah Braithwaite purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Sarah Braithwaite chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We searched Spain for the ideal place to have a holiday home and finally fell in love with Frigiliana. The fantastic climate and the beautiful historic village makes this our favourite place to relax.

What makes this apartment unique

The residential is stunning and the whole family enjoys padle tournaments, the pool and relaxing in the quiet garden of our apartment. Through the village access gate, we are just minutes walk away from a range of cafes and restaurants in the historic centre of Frigiliana to while away an afternoon or beautiful evening sunset. In the summer months our apartment offers a shady area for lunchtime dining on the patio and the apartment benefits as a cool retreat.

We recently visited in April and enjoyed a fantastic day skiing in Sierra Nevada - abundant snow and glorious sunshine!

A lovely, private apartment in a stunning character Spanish village

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic holiday in Frgiliana. Much to explore along the coast and village.The apartment was very clean and well equipped - lovely cotten linen on the beds - always a plus.The outside space was particulary lovely with a lovely combination of shade and evening sun. Great variety of restaurants in the village to suit all budgets. A great base to explore inland Spain . Next time intend to make a trip to Granada and explore the Sierra Nevada.Thank you

Fabulous and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was fantastic - loved the apartment and the surrounding village of Frigliana. The apartment has everything you need - just bring your clothes (oh and you will need beach towels too). The restaurants which are all walking distance serve fabulous food and affordable prices. One top tip would be to make sure you have the keys with you before you shut any of the sliding doors as we managed to get locked out twice! (problem solved quickly by the managing agents). All in all we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed a wonderful week here. Wished we stayed for 2 !

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week in Frigiliana. This apartment has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Excellent communication with the owner beforehand and everything was as described. The apartment is well maintained and was immaculate on arrival. the shops, bars and restaurants are all closeby and would recommend that you get yourself lost in the beautiful streets of the town.

Only one slight issue was that several times we were unable to park directly outside the complex after being out for the day as it would seem that Frigliana gets a few evening visitors to its restaurants. We had to park about an 8 minute walk away however the beautiful views on the walk back soon settle any irritability !!

Overall we had a fantastic stay and have put Frigliana on the shortlist of places to retire to and have recommended it to everyone since our return!

Many thanks

The Stotts

Great week in Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment with everything you would need from a self catering base, clean and well presented. Made use of the cool box and beach items. Air con in the bedrooms was a plus. Communal pool was clean and a welcome break from the lovely warm weather. The village is just outside Nerja, has outstanding views, beautiful white washed Spanish houses and cobbled streets. Plenty of restaurants serving good food within walking distance at reasonable prices. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to family and friends.

Location

Nearest Beach
6 Kilometres
Nerja
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

In the nearby beach town resort of Nerja (6 km) is 10 minutes by car or local bus ( 1 Euro hourly service in high season)

Travel:

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.

Distances:

Two minute walk to the historic village for grocerys 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 afield the historic city of Granada home to the majestic Alhambra takes 50 minutes by car. Sierra Nevada is 30 minutes from Granada where you can ski late in the season on the south facing slopes of this popular ski resort.

Further Details:

Frigiliana is located just 6 kilometres inland north of Nerja and lies at an altitude of 435 metres. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara mountain range, Frigiliana is an extremely pretty village which has received several awards for conservation and beauty. It enjoys spectacular countryside as well as wonderful sea views and good access to the coast. The population is around 3,000.

The village is a tangle of narrow cobbled streets lined by whitewashed houses, their wrought-iron balconies filled with planters of brilliant red geraniums. Small plazas provide shady seating while the village bars are popular with visitors who come here to taste the locally produced wine. There are also several excellent shops selling pottery and ceramics, including decorative plates with their distinctive Arab design. Frigiliana is best explored by foot.

Due to its unrivalled charm Frigiliana attracts a vast number of tourists during the summer months. Sunny summer days can be spent enjoying a light refreshment in one of its numerous bars and cafes, taking in the sights of some of its enduring processions and fiestas or exploring the area by taking a walk through olive groves, avocado plantations and lines of almond trees.
