Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The property lies on the edge of the well-established Capistrano Village complex. It's very private walled garden features a built-in barbeque and garden furniture for al-fresco dining. The roomy living area has an open fireplace,
3-piece suite, ceiling fan, 20-channel TV (inc. Sky Sports), radio/CD player, DVD and video cassette players and comfortable dining for up to six people, using a kitchen annex containing oven/hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave and the usual small appliances.
Each of the two bedrooms has a ceiling fan and an en-suite shower room with wash-basin and WC , the upper bedroom and terrace being accessed by a spiral staircase. Although fully refurbished, the villa retains its traditional Spanish ambiance.
Places to visit, things to do: The charming, award-winning village of Frigliana and the dramatic Caves of Nerja are respectively 5 km and 2 km away. By car, the road from nearby Torrox to Competa demands utmost concentration but views and destination are rewarding. To the west, a trip to Antequera with its spectacular National Park is worthwhile. To the east, Almunecar is an interesting town with a castle and some history. Further afield is the Alhambra, the magnificent Moorish Palace on the edge of Granada which is reached in around 2 hours. A further 30 min. drive takes one to the Sierra Nevada ski resort, the most southerly in Europe. Coach trips to Gibralter and Seville are well worthwhile. Although the main centre for golf is to the west of Malaga, there are two excellent courses within a 30 min. drive and plans for one in Nerja have recently been approved. There are many spectacular walks along the coast and into the surrounding hills.

Nerja boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water. All major water sports are available here, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing.
Flanked by a dramatic mountain range, Sierra Almijara, to the east, the town has, fortunately, managed to avoid being blighted by the concrete high-rise scenario which has been the inevitable result of the tourist boom in some of the coastal resorts. The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged with narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces overflowing with geraniums, on which a canary can sometimes be heard singing.
However, the heart of Nerja is its spectacular Balcón de Europa the "Balcony of Europe", a magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff, once the site of the great Moorish castle, with sweeping panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the small coves and beaches below, against an awesome backdrop of hazy blue mountains.
There are plenty of tapas bars and cafes here to choose from, and the visitor can hire a horse-drawn carriage to explore the most romantic corner of the town.
The town's monuments include the 17th century Church of El Salvador, in a style which is a charming mixture of baroque and Moorish, or mudéjar, and the beautiful Gardens of Capistrano Playa, which descend to Burriana Beach.
Nerja's most spectacular attraction is undoubtedly its fascinating caves, located just three kilometres from the centre of town. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during the summer. Each summer Nerja celebrats International Cave Festival, with the participation of many top international entertainers.
Nerja cuisine includes several specialities including De La Doncella (red mullet) and pescaito frito (fried fish) and ranging from top international cuisine to the ubiquitous sausage, eggs and chips! There is no shortage of restaurants to choose from.
Nerja is 50 km from Málaga. It is connected to the western end of the Costa del Sol by a dual carriage motorway. The journey from Marbella takes about an hour, while travelling from Málaga takes around half an hour.
