This fabulously light and airy apartment is superbly orientated to allow the living areas and kitchen to maximise enjoyment of the outside space and sea views.
This penthouse apartment on the 3rd floor (no lift!!) has two comfortably furnished double bedrooms with plenty of space for clothes storage. Located at the front of the building, together with the recently refurbished bathroom, both rooms are fitted with roller shutters and fans to maintain comfort during the summer heat.
Recently refurbished, the bespoke hand-painted kitchen is well equipped with good quality appliances, allowing you to prepare your own meals while enjoying the sea view.
Although the spacious terrazo-tiled living areas are comfortably furnished with a relaxing seating space as well as a 6-person dining area, the jewel in the crown of this flat is, without doubt, the full width and height sliding 'glass wall' enabling the spectacular sea views to be enjoyed throughout the year, from inside as well as from the terrace.

The Costa del Sol region
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 ski-ing 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.
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 bars.
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 n Nerja as everywhere in town is easily accessible by foot and there are good local bus, taxi and coach services
