The Andalucia region
Nerja is on the seashore some 50 kilometres from Málaga on the N340 coastal highway, and marks the eastern tip of Málaga's Costa del Sol. Once a sleepy fishing village, the town now has a population of over 12,000.
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.
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 restaurants and cafes here to choose from, and the visitor can hire a horse-drawn carriage to explore the most romantic corner of the town.
Nerja town itself is only 1km away - a 5min drive or a 25min stroll along the beach with stunning mountain views.
In Nerja you have the Cuevas de Nerja (Nerja Caves) with their amazing limestone formations and the local donkey sanctuary - a great day out for the kids where they can see the animals and help feed and groom them!
There are several villages inland worth exploring, Frigiliana is 3km away, a stunning whitewashed village with cobbled streets and cafes.
Competa is about 15km away up a windy hilly road - again, a lovely whitewashed village famous for its wine and raisins where you can roam around the little streets, check out the church and enjoy a drink in the main square.
Ronda is about an hour's drive away (north of Malaga) and has spectacular views due to the gorge there.
For the shoppers there is a large shopping centre at Velez Malaga (15mins drive towards Malaga) and Malaga itself is only 45 mins drive.
Driving up to Granada there are some lovely little villages to stop at, Lanjaron (where the mineral water comes from) and Orgiva.
The stunning Alhambra palace is about 1.5 hours drive - well worth seeing but get there early or reserve tickets online before going.
Granada city is lovely - very spanish, little old streets, friendly traditional tapas bars and lots of shops!
You can also ski at the Sierra Nevada resort - about 1.5-2hours drive - up until the end of April.
Golf is available at the nearby Baviera course (15mins drive)

"A little Gem"
My partner and I decided to try an apartment this time and after a lengthy search on line we found this one.
The apartment is nice and clean and fully equiped and ready to go. The location is ideal with only a short walk to the beach and a 5 minute bus ride into town. Its in a quite picturesque location in a hill side town, Andy's bar is only a 3 minute walk away if you don't fancy a trip into town.
We would definately stay there again.

Beautiful, well equiped kitchen, two great bathrooms/bedrooms, lovely veranda with great view, little swimmingpool outside with sunbeds and parasols, just everything you could wish for and more!

"Idyllic pad, gorgeous view, great location"
My girlfriend and I stayed at El Olivar for a week and loved it - the bed is huge and comfortable, the sea view from the chillin' balcony is very pretty, and it's easy to get into the centre of the beautiful old town of Nerja to eat barbecued paella on the beach or explore the "tapas trail" at night. The owners were very helpful and everything was shipshape from start to finish. We plan to go again for another lazy getaway as soon as possible!
