Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Step out of this apartment and you find yourself at the top of Calle Carabeo, quite possibly the most picturesque street in Nerja. Turn right and you can enjoy a pleasant 10-minute stroll, taking in the lovely fisherman's cottages, boutiques and cafes that line the pedestrianized street, before you arrive at Balcon de Europa, a beautiful viewpoint that juts out into the sea giving you wonderful vistas out into the Med. Turn left and a mere 50 metres along the road you come to some steps that take you down to a small sandy cove and the sea. Carabeillo Beach is usually pretty quiet as there are no facilities - just a shower to get the sand off you - perfect for a quiet morning swim. What about the apartment I hear you say? Well, it's a pretty two-bed on the top floor of a three-floor building (no lift) with plenty of character. The flat is very secure as there is a gate you can lock protecting the main door - quite common in Spain. Inside, you will find a spacious lounge with a sofa, a couple of armchairs, satellite TV (English channels available including BBC & ITV), pay-as-you-go WiFi, brand new air conditioning in the living room and double bedroom, a dining room table and four chairs. French windows open out onto a pretty terrace with a table and two chairs. The main bedroom has a double bed, wardrobe and French windows that open out onto the balcony. Both this bedroom and living room face east so good sun in the morning and cool in the afternoon. The second bedroom is small - more ideally situated to two small children than two adults. There are two new sprung single beds with one bed sliding out from under the other. Please note both bedrooms face out onto the street. There can be some ambient street noise in the evening as the two or three restaurants around the building lock up. The kitchen comes fully equipped. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, toilet, washbasin and a Bosch washing machine. If you are a sunseeker, there is a massive communal roof terrace with fantastic views for your to enjoy. Sunbeds are dotted around the terrace and there are sun lounger cushions in the flat for you to take up to the roof. The pool is a decent size and quite deep. It's on the ground floor. There is some room around the pool to put a chair down and sunbathe but not much! On arrival at our flat, you will be offered a welcome pack and you will find the beds made and ready for you. Bathroom and beach towels are available for your use.The cost includes final cleaning at the end of your stay. Come and enjoy our flat in Nerja. We would love you to stay! Mark & David

The Andalucia region
Andalucia is a wonderful region to visit by car. Use Nerja as your base and discover the white-washed villages of the hinterland. Your first trip should be to Frigiliana, a beautiful village perched on a mountain just a few short kilometres from Nerja. Wander round the cobbled streets, take in the weekly market (every Thursday) and end up having lunch at Las Chinas. It may not look fancy on the outside but this is one hell of a good restaurant for food and the service is excellent and very friendly. You should also try and get to Ronda, the home of bullfighting. The town is perched above a fabulous gorge - it's quite a sight! Further afield, a trip to Cordoba and Granada should be on your itinerary while Gibraltar is so quirky it merits a visit.
Nerja is one of the few towns of the Costa del Sol to have retained much of its charm as a former fishing village. You can still enjoy the feel of a "sleepy village" if you're an early riser and make way your way to the Balcon de Europa for a coffee. The day is only just getting started and you can enjoy a moment's peace and tranquility before the town fills with happy tourists in search of breakfast, souvenirs and the beach. Nerja is a place where you go to relax with your book, iPad or Kindle. It is not a rowdy town although young people can enjoy the late-night bars of Square Tutti Frutti (I'm not kidding, that is its name!) while those over 40 can while away an evening on Plaza Cavana. There are plenty of good restaurants in town (Bakus, Puerta del Mar) but also quite a few stinkers! The usual rule is to avoid those that offer menus in every conceivable language but you might end up very hungry if you do that. My advice - do not go into restaurants where there is a waiter outside touting for business and if you do end up in tourist eatery, stick to what the Spanish do best - fish, seafood, tortila and the like. Tapa are best eaten in bars that specialise in them - Los Barrilles on Calle Carabeo is very popular.
There are a large number of beaches to cater to all tastes. The closest one to the apartment is Carabeillo. I often go down there for an early swim. It's about 50 metres down some fairly steep steps although there are resting points for those who are not so steady on their feet. The beauty of this beach is that there are no real facilities except for showers to wash off after your swim. The lack of facilities keeps the crowds away - very pleasant.
A better beach for families is Burriana. You can actually access this beach from Carabeillo by walking around a stone bluff - easy to do in low tide. Burriana is a beautiful wide beach with lots of activities, restaurants and small shops. It's perhaps the most famous beach in Nerja.
My preference is for Calahonda Beach. There is a little bar that offers sun loungers and parasols. It's set in a cove just to the east of Balcon de Europa. The walk down to the beach is also quite easy if you suffer mobility problems. My parents, who are in their seventies, had no problem getting down.
If you're looking for something a little wilder, El Plazayo is your best bet. I've never been myself but I hear a lot of good things.
I hope this description gives you a flavour of Nerja!

"Fabulous location, excellent, spotlessly clean apartment! 4.5 out of 5!"
I have just returned from a lovely 5-night stay in the superb Apartamentos Burrianos in Nerja. The apartment was exactly as described, a mere 2 minutes from the nearest beach and close to the centre of Nerja. The owner was most helpful throughout the booking process, key pick up was easy, as was getting to the apartment by taxi. Access is up a short initial flight of marble steps and then on up to the second floor, but they are short flights of stairs. The apartment was beautiful, with a welcome pack of all the basics.The kitchen was very well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. A mini market is just a minute's walk away. The apartment building itself is very pretty, true to the photographs, and whilst the area around the pool is small, we felt the pool photo didn't do it justice. We loved the location as we could easily walk everywhere from there and it was very calm and relaxed. It really is 5 stars, but I gave 4 as the air con unit really didn't quite do the job and the bedrooms are located at the back of the building, overlooking the road, and at night this was just a bit noisy when the nearby restaurants were closing up. All in all my daughter (21) and I loved it here and would highly recommend this apartment and beautiful Nerja.
Many thanks for your kind words. I do hope we can look forward to having you as our guest in the future. I have taken note of your comments on the air conditioning unit. I do have plans to upgrade it in the future once we have put in heating for the winter months. I also note your comments about the noise from the street. It is true that the restaurants do make a bit of noise when they close up. Personally it has never bothered me as I live in the middle of a busy city but I will make sure to update my description and mention this. Thank you again for your positive review.
