The Costa del Sol region
Nerja is where the mountains of the Sierra Almijara come down and meet the sea. It is a Spanish town, not a 'tourist' town, in a spectacular setting between the foothills of the mountains and the sparkling Mediterranean. A place where clear fresh mountain water flows in abundance, making the village a paradise of trees, flowers and colour, all year round. It lies in one of Spain's richest farming areas; abundant with fruit, vegetables and flowers; this is known as the 'Garden of Europe". It is an area of outstanding beauty situated in the midst of a tropical valley where you will find olive groves, avocado trees, fields of wild strawberries and the greatest variety of exotic plants all encouraged by what is considered to be the best all year round climate in Europe.
Because of its unique location, and being protected from the north by the majestic, snow capped, Sierra Nevada range, Nerja has its own micro-climate and the soft dry air is known to be particularly beneficial to sufferers of respiratory and associated disorders.
Nerja is essentially a Spanish village, with a kind and friendly community who will welcome you on every visit. Stroll through the narrow white-washed streets and you will discover interesting court-yards, colourful shops and local people simply sitting in the sun this is the typical Nerja atmosphere, unhurried and relaxed.
You will find the magnificent Balcon de Europa stretching out into the shimmering Mediterranean. This splendid area paved with marble and with an avenue of palm trees is the centre of activity for many of the local festivals, or is an ideal place just to meet friends at one of the pavement cafes.
You will find a seemingly never ending choice of restaurants and traditional Tapas bars with delicious food and friendly service. Or, you may prefer to try one of the typically Andalusian beach restaurants where you can enjoy anything from freshly grilled sardines (a local speciality!) to Spain's finest Paella, having just watched it being freshly prepared over a wood fire.
The coastline itself here is unique in that the Mountains actually reach the shore and form majestic cliffs which shelter picturesque beaches and coves
town authorities have imposed limitations on this zone to protect the area from mass tourism, it is quite different from the towns located to the west of Malaga
the area contains a large number of springs, forming rivers and streams and therefore its name is appropriate. Nerja was called Narixa during the Moorish occupation which means "abundant spring"
climate - the mountains protect from the winter north winds while the influence of the sea makes for milder temperatures in both winter and summer
agriculture is rich and abundant due to this climate and therefore fresh fruits and vegetables of many exotic varieties are available year round
fishing is also important to Nerja and you can watch the fisherman come back from their night fishing and sort their catch or fix their nets
tourism is now Nerja's main source of income and as such the town is geared to providing great accommodations, restaurants and access to all the area attractions...
Caves of Nerja - underground streams perforated the limestone of these mountains forming huge chambers and strange but lovely stalactites and stalagmites. The cave was inhabited as far back as Higher Paleolithic Age, 30,000 years ago and was used up to about 3,000 years ago. Sound and light equipment has been installed to provide easy access and viewing for the interest of tourists. One of the chambers has been converted into an original setting for the Internationally famous Festival of Dance and Music, held every summer since 1960, and seats some 800 spectators. During this summer festival, the Bolshoi Ballet and many renowned orchestras have performed in the past. Throughout the year there is the occasional concert held in this magnificent site where the acoustics are suberb. There are cave paintings to view and a museum, restaurant, cafe and other facilities.

"Lovely villa and great location"
We stayed at 3 Alamar 2 for 2 weeks in July for the first time and were so impressed.We arrived to a freshly cleaned villa that was a perfect location for us - only 5 mins from the beach! A 10 minute… More

"Fabulous! We have booked to stay again in April and October next year!!"
A group of 6 of us including 2 children stayed at the villa during the half term holidays for 9 nights. We also rented the one next door as there was 14 of all us altogether. From the start of the booking Malcolm the owner was extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble, including arranging our hassle free airport transfers (300 euros return for 14 of us) which worked out cheaper as 1 minibus as opposed to booking individual taxis from the airport.
The villa itself was spotlessly clean and met every one of our needs, a little trouble with the sky TV was resolved the same day so caused no inconvenience.
There is plenty of seating and sufficient storage for all your holiday belongings and
beds were really comfy having memory foam mattresses which I think is an important factor when on holiday. The bathroom has recently been refurbished and the shower was a good temperature and powerful!! Kitchen was well equipped for cooking and storage.
There are further improvements happening before next season, including a kitchen refurbishment and new shower room downstairs, can't wait to see them!
In terms of location it is perfectly placed close to Burriana beach and takes literally 2/3 minutes to walk and you are there and it's only a 10/12 minute walk and you are in Nerja Town which is a lovely traditional place to browse the shops and enjoy great tapas bars and restaurants. We also enjoyed the tapas trails which can be found on trip advisor and are easy to follow. If you don't want to go into town there is plenty of options locally in Burriana for food and drinks.
I would recommend the Supermercado in Nerja for shopping as it's really cheap for food and drinks. A walk there and taxi back, the taxi rank is right as you walk outside the shop, between 6-8 euros.
Overall it was great value for money too given the location and we were so pleased with our stay this year that we have booked to stay again in the same Villa in April and October next year!!

Thank-you for your email.
We really had a wonderful family holiday. Your villa is beautiful and couldn't be in a better position. The beach is literally just a stone's throw away and it's true that you can hear the waves from the terrace.
We loved Burianna Beach too. It's very child friendly, beautiful clear waters and life guards were always present.
We loved having all the bars and restaurants so close. Then of course the delight of discovering Nerja town centre was another pleasant surprise. The view from the top of the zig zag walk way is truly stunning and you can really appreciate the great position of the villa in comparison to the beach. Then on from there it's a very pleasant walk through the town to The Balcon which again is a wonderful sight. It was also great to see people walking up and down the walkway from our terrace especially in the evening with a nice cool drink!
We were so pleasantly surprised with Nerja and the position of your villa that I really think we have found our holiday paradise! Why go anywhere else? (You can probably tell that my head is still in Nerja.I was a travel consultant for ten years before having my family and I'm obsessed with holidays!)
As regards the villa it was very well equipped, beds were very comfortable. Very clean. Great to have ironing board, iron, hair dryer, towels.
A truly wonderful place to stay. The pool was great too and gardens are so well looked after. We were surprised that being August the pool was usually empty during the day on the days we didn't go out so we had it to ourselves, then late afternoon it was a great atmosphere to have people around the pool as they return from their day out.
We had such a lazy holiday that we never did make it to the market!
No problem either with supermarkets. We got a taxi a couple of times to the large supermarket and it all went smoothly with loading and unloading all our bags and there were a lot of them!
You Malcolm couldn't have been more efficient and helpful. Your sorted all our queries instantly and it was very reassuring to know that you were there at the end of the phone if we needed you. We are very grateful for that.
It's just such a shame that you are fully booked for August next year. I am trying to persuade my husband to book next years holiday but notice you are not available for 2 weeks in August next year, but we most certainly hope to return.
Best Regards Malcolm Peter Williams.

Thank You ! Shaun & Cora, so glad you enjoyed the villa, and the boys did as well, and everything was to your satisfaction, although it was a rush booking so late in the November, and as normal the weather was kind.
You must visit again in the summer time, to get the feel of Nerja, so the "boys can spend longer in the pool.
Best Regards To you All Malcolm.
