Penthouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Aljamar penthouse apartment has 3 good size bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and commanding views with large terraces for family BBQ or simply enjoying life 'al fresco' on sunbeds and loungers, in the sun or in the shade. Just a short walk down the hill to the award winning Burriana beach where you will find fantastic beach bars, restaurants, supermarket, ice cream parlours and everything you need to have a great day on the beach - including scuba diving!
Just a 15 minute walk, or 4 minute taxi rides, takes you right into the heart of Nerja with it's wide selection of tapas bars & restaurants. These are complimented by the huge variety of shops and stores that are sitting in the tiny cobbled roadways and side streets. Great for people watching!
At night, sitting on your roof terrace or terraced dining room, you have one of the best views over the town and it is absolutely fantastic watching the sun go down and seeing the glitter of lights start to appear over the tiny streets of Nerja and the surrounding mountain villages. A truly memorable experience!

The Valenciana region
Nearby towns of Frigiliana & Torrox offer the experience of authentic Spanish whitewashed villages. The world famous Caves are located in Maro just 3 km east of Nerja. Baviera Golf Course is within 15 mins drive & the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada, Granada is just 2 hours drive. Ski & dine on the beach on the same day! Walking is very popular in the Sierra de Almijaras.
For those in search of retail therapy, there is a good selection of shops & boutiques in Nerja & large shopping centre at Velez Malaga. Malaga city offers excellent shops & restaurants together with a great insight in to the history of the area. The Cathedral & Bull Ring are well worth a visit.
When visiting this region for the first time, it doesn't take long to understand how it has come to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The narrow strip of land sandwiched between the Mediterranean and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range which has come to be known as the Costa del Sol offers a wealth of geographical, historical and cultural attractions. Activities available locally include hiking, golf, tennis, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife sightseeing trips, all manner of watersports and even skiing in the mountains.
The great Arab cities of Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba and Malaga contain some of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in Europe and are all day-trips from Nerja. A few miles inland from Nerja, Frigiliana, one of dozens of whitewashed villages that pepper the foothills of the Almijaras, is a beautiful example of a humbler form of Moorish architecture, with its steep narrow streets only passable on foot or donkey.
In more recent times, Catholicism has been a dominant cultural influence in Spain and although the church's influence has decreased over the last 50 years, during Franco's repressive regime, the people used the religious festivals as an opportunity to gather in public in large numbers and party !! These traditions are still very strong today and all the locals come out and participate in the Fiestas. Some of Nerjas most enjoyable festival include Carnival in February, Semana Santa from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday, San Isidro Romerio around May 15th when all the people get dressed up and walk/dance to Maro, San Juan around 25th June when bonfires are lit on the beaches, everyone gathers and enjoys a barbecue before going into the water at midnight and in October there is a 6-day fair.
Day trips include Marbella with its famous Puerto Banus marina, and also Granada with its magnificent Alhambra Palace, as well as the classical city of Seville. Golf can also be enjoyed only 15 mins. drive away at Baviera Golf close to Caleta de Velez and also at Anoreta Golf at Rincon de la Victoria. The Water world is a must for all the family at Torre del Mar.
Nerja!! The jewel of the Costa del Sol. Probably the best climate in Europe!!
Nerja is a coastal town at the foot of the Almijara mountains with a long tradition of fishing and agriculture. The fishermen still pull their nets ashore on Burriana beach and fresh produce can still be bought from the doorways of local people's houses. The weekly market (Tuesdays) attracts many traders and shoppers from all over the region and the town centre has a vibrant, friendly atmosphere with many lovely shops and tapas bars & restaurants.
While Nerja bears no resemblance to the 'high-rise' holiday developments often associated with the Costa del Sol, it is a popular destination for North European and Spanish tourists and offers all the necessary ingredients for a fantastic holiday - good road link to airport (45 minutes), a huge choice of restaurants to suit every budget, bars, cafes, nightclubs, beautiful clean beaches and of course lots of sunshine.
A car is not necessary for a holiday in Nerja as everywhere in town is easily accessible by foot and there are good local bus, taxi and coach services
Nerja is a wonderful contrast between a sleepy fishing village with a fantastic lively atmosphere in the evenings ideal for families, couples and friends. Nerja has five wonderful sandy beaches offering sunbed & parasol hire, watersports, pedaloes, tapas bars and restaurants.
The famous Cuevas de Nerja and the picturesque Frigiliana are only a short distance away. Granada is now just over an hour's drive by car and there are several typical towns and villages within easy reach either in the Alpujarras mountains or closer along the lovely Costa Tropical which is still one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in Europe.

This is a stunning penthouse within a residential complex which was lovely but yet so quiet. The views from all the terrace were fantastic especially in the evening watching the sun set. The place is … More

"spacious duplex apartment - great views!"
Great terraces for outside sunbathing & dining, clean and contemporary, comfy furniture, well equipped kitchen, quiet and relaxing. Steep hill down to Burriana Beach but can taxi back - we walked it for a daily work out! . Plus points of being up the hill were 'quiet location and views'. Can walk up to old town from Burriana beach, lovely atmosphere, cobbled streets with loads of restaurants to choose from. Would definitely go back to Nerja, traditionally Spanish, lovely resort.

"Idyllic stay in a beautiful place"
Stunning villa set in a modern residential complex. Incredible views from the terraces. Extremely peaceful location, ideal for a relaxing break. Spotlessly clean and very well stocked. Short walk (down a very steep hill) to the lovely Burriana beach (approx 10 mins) and a further 10 mins into the main town/village. nearest bar/restaurant to villa is about 7 mins walk at bottom of hill. Pool is shared by other residents but whenever we used it we had it to ourselves. Would definately return.
