Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This traditional 3 double bedroomed house is located in the charming setting of Punta Lara, a white-washed urbanization to the West of Nerja.
This is the ideal place for a family or group of friends to enjoy a beach or pool holiday (it's very easy to laze around the pool and not move for days on end) and also enjoy all the facilities that Nerja has to offer.
The ground floor accommodation consists of a double and twin bedroom, both with fitted wardrobes, and a shower room. The master bedroom is found on the next floor complete with it's own terrace. Also upstairs is a family bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and open plan living/dining room with a pretty balcony facing the sea. A favourite with all our guests is the lovely 60m2 roof terrace which has stunning views of the Mediterranean, Almijara mountains and Nerja itself. A great place to enjoy the sun and have a BBQ whilst drinking in the views. Up here are 4 sun beds, a shower, shade, dining facilities and a fridge!! You are just a short walk away from the large communal pool, set in beautiful gardens, and bar where you will find Miguel and his family serving traditional Spanish food and drinks at very reasonable prices.
The beach is also within walking distance and offers a choice of bars, restaurants and even pedaloes for hire.

The Costa del Sol region
Punta Lara sits on the hillside overlooking the famous holiday resort of Nerja on the beautiful Mediterranean coast. There are many excellent beaches all within easy reach and with a huge variety of restaurants (chiringuitos), serving freshly caught local fish and paella cooked over open fires, the most famous of these being 'Ayo's'. Not only does Ayo cook the biggest paella on Burriana Beach but he is also one of the boys who discovered La Cueva de Nerja (the Caves of Nerja) a well known tourist attraction. Nerja itself is a traditional whitewashed Spanish village that has developed gradually over the years yet still managed to retain all of its original charm, particularly the heart of the town, the famous 'Balcon de Europa. It's proximity to the mountain range of the Sierra Nevada means you can ski, swim, sunbathe and play golf all on the same day. Granada is not far away and there are many pretty pueblos to visit if you can drag yourself off the beach and away from the delights of Nerja!
Nerja was originally a small fishing village that I have seen grow over the last 30 or so years. My grandparents bought the house in the early 70's and I have many happy memories of my holidays there with my family, then friends as I got older and now wtih my own children. It is a very special place as there is something for everyone. The variety of restaurants is incredible and my grandfather used to claim there were 800 bars. To qualify, a bar in Spain can literally be a beer pump, a tiny loo and a chair. I have to say, I've never managed to get around all 800 and I suspect there are more now but I always had a good try! There is an area just away from the centre of the town, Plaza Tutti Frutti (yes I know) where the music bars and nightclubs are located so if you want to dance the night away you can.
All the Nerja beaches now have lifeguards during the summer months though the Mediterranean is not normally dangerous but it's good to know they are there. The beaches all have chiringuitos (restaurants) so you are always able to get a drink or a bite to eat easily and many of the beaches also have showers which is wonderful, especially if you have children.
There are many places to visit along the coast if you wish to explore. Maro, a very small and pretty fishing village is next to Nerja, just past the Nerja Caves (not to be missed) and La Herradura is further on. I can highly recommend both for a visit.
Just remember your suncreams and hats as it can get very hot here during the summer and it can be wise to take a siesta, preferably in the shade, in the afternoon to prepare yourself for the long summer evenings. The Spanish love to party and they can go on all night and the next day too. Lookout too for the 'ferias' that take place in Nerja, the biggest being in the 2nd week of October. Lots of fun for everyone and they have special days for children.
Just inland from Nerja is the quaint village of Frigiliana, this also has grown over the years but it makes for a great afternoon out, wandering the narrow streets amongst the higgledy piggledy arrangement of house with spectacular roof gardens. Definitely worth the short drive and you should make a point of having a drink or a meal in one of the bars or restaurants overlooking the sea.
