An unknown Shepherd must have recognised a good thing when he saw it because he built his hut right where this charming country villa now stands. Every direction presents a breathtaking view. To the the north is the village of Frigiliana, one of the prettiest in Spain. To the east and west are the Almijara and Malaga mountains and to the south, the Mediterranean sea sparkles in the copious amounts of sunshine this region of Spain enjoys. Frigiliana itself holds some of the finest restaurants in the region and three kilometers to the south, the town of Nerja provides shops, bars, beaches and a thriving night-life. The Garden and terraces are surrounded by cotton palms, bougainvilla, oleander, ornamental raspberry and carob, pine and avocado trees. The south terrace also contains a brick-built barbeque and sink. Horse riding, mountain and dry river walks are easily accessible, as are the Nerja caves, beach water sports and motorways to Almeria, Granada, Malaga, Seville and Cordoba.

The Andalucia region
Nearby towns of Frigiliana & Torrox offer the experience of authentic Spanish whitewashed villages. The world famous Nerja 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, Catholocism 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.
In Frigiliana there are guided tours on horseback, market on Thursday and motorcycle rental. You should visit the old town where the architectural design and structure dates to the period of the Moors and is considered one of the best, if not the best conserved in the province of Malaga; with its narrow and winding streets and meticulously painted houses which all together make this place an enchanting and captivating experience. The fascination of meandering slowly through the village along one of the two or three main cobbled streets, is that one may inadvertently discover a discreet little side street or passageway appearing to lead away to a secluded square, patio or another undiscovered street. From the balconies and terraces of its houses, the beauty of the gently rolling hills of the surrounding countryside and the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea is all that can be seen. Along a specially designated route through the old historic quarter, the history of the village is narrated in old Spanish via a series of beautifully hand painted ceramic plaques. Village handcrafts and produce can be bought from the many little shops in the old town. Interestingly, there is a textile cooperative that was founded with the objective of recuperating the tradition and legacy of the ancient practices of the Arab villages.
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.
