“Wonderful house. Wonderful Frigiliana.”
We spent two super weeks at this well-appointed and charming town house in the heart of the historic quarter of Frigiliana. When we arrived Javier, the owner, welcomed us and what a warm and friendly welcome it was. The welcome pack that Javier and Rosario provided was extremely generous. The house is of a very high standard - this is not your typical rental property, you can see the owners have spent a lot of time and money making it very functional and beautiful. The house was spotlessly clean and in very good condition. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. We had been concerned about finding supermarkets/shops in Frigiliana but there are many. Javier pointed out one at the bottom of the road, which turned out to have all we needed – including very good gin and quality tonic - and was open on Sunday. The terrace area provides wonderful views and is a lovely place to eat and chill out, with shaded and sunny areas. It is much larger than it appears in the photos – we loved it. My wife and I loved reading our books at night-time with the most mesmerising starry sky above us. The sunsets were stunning. The small pool was welcome on hot days when we didn't venture out. We found that we spent more time in Frigiliana and the lovely house that we had intended, as we were so comfortable there. The villa is very quiet during the evenings and cool during the night, although the weather was very hot. We didn't use the air conditioning, as it can’t be used after midnight. There are plenty of good places to eat in Frigiliana. La Taberna del Sacristan is a must – don't miss the enormous and delicious prawn cocktail! We also dined at Restaurant 34 at the Hotel Carabeo in Nerja, which was super. We didn't bother with a car and were pleased we didn't. Javier organised a taxi from Malaga and Paulino from Frigiliana Taxis provided an A1 service. The busses from Frigiliana to Nerja were great - only 1 euro - and we also travelled by bus to Malaga and Salobrena with no problems. Javier did an amazing job in getting us beds on Burriana beach in a prime location. It took 22 phone calls. Javier you are a star! We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely house. Javier & Rosario, nuestro sincero gracias por proporcionar unas vacaciones maravillosas y relajantes.

We've just returned from a 12 day stay and the house is fantastic. Inside it is clean, comfortable and homely and is very traditional Spanish in style. Outside is absolutely stunning - the views are amazing and the terrace is huge with everything you could wish for - plunge pool, sunbeds, dining table and chairs, a shaded seating area and a barbeque. Owners Javier and Rosario and their son Nicholas are friendly and very helpful and go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect, they are really lovely people.

“We just keep coming back!”
We have visited this property many times, we love it! It's a lovely property, couple this with some great owners and you can't go wrong. Javier and Rosario are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble, so it's no surprise to see in the visitors book that so many are guests that return year after year.
“Unique little apartment idea for 2 people, lovely views from superb terrace.”
We stayed in this lovely apartment for a long weekend (4 days). It was a perfect break in November, the sun shone every day. We had breakfast on the terrace overlooking the mountains. The accommodation is excellent and the location ideal for walking through the old town, didn't need a car. We enjoyed seeing our friends, the owners Rosario, Javier and their children as always We would love to stay at Los Arcos again and would recommend it to our friends & family. We have also stayed at Hazilla de Raya and El Torin which are also beautiful places to stay in.
“Beautiful apartment with great roof terrace”
We absolutely loved our stay at ‘Arcos de la Almona’. Javier & Rosario, the owners who live in the house below are very welcoming and helpful without being instrusive. The apartment itself is lovely and homely, it really feels like someone’s home, and the roof terrace is fantastic, very large with all the seating and sunbathing furniture you need and a wonderful decent sized plunge pool, all back dropped by the mountains, very beautiful... Frigliana itself is a beautiful village, very Spanish, and Nerja which is only a short bus journey away is also a great place to visit.
“Never fails to enchant!”
We have been going to Arcos de la Almona for over 7 years now, usually annually, sometimes twice a year, and we never, never tire of the place. The apartment itself is utterly delightful, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, is great for two, and has the most wonderful roof terrace with its own plunge pool, seating area, barbecue and with spectacular views over the surrounding sierras. We have come to know the owners, Javier and Rosario, very well, and they, along with their two children, are the most charming, helpful, friendly couple you could ever wish to meet. They live on the 2nd floor of this lovely three-floored traditional village property (Rosario's mother lives on the ground floor!), and the obvious advantage of that, of course, is that they are always on hand if you have any problems, or just want to ask a question. Anything you need, you only have to say - they will be only too delighted to do what they can to assist. Above all, they will do their utmost to ensure that you have the most pleasurable - and utterly memorable - stay. (And that, by the way, includes providing you with the best welcome pack you're ever likely to experience in any self-catering rental property!) But they are never intrusive – they're there when you need them, invisible when you don't. Frigiliana itself is a delightful village. It's a 'working' village, really, which means that the bars and restaurants are, for the most part, there to cater for the locals, rather than the tourists. Ergo, a little Spanish, although not absolutely essential, is appreciated, and goes a long way. You will find very reasonable prices in most establishments, and in one or two places prices are much lower than you'd find in the UK. Sure, there are one or two touristy spots, but by and large these tend to cater for the day-trippers who come up from Nerja for the day, and then go away again around late afternoon, allowing the village to return to its normal air of tranquillity, with the sound of local children having fun in the little streets and plazas the only thing you'll be likely to hear of an evening. But if you do fancy the “bright lights” of Nerja, there is a frequent local bus service between there and the village (last bus back to Frigiliana is 8.30pm, so any later and you'll need a taxi – but it's only a 5-10 minute drive so that's not an expensive option). There is, however, no service on a Sunday. If you decide to hire a car, Javier can organise that for you. As I write this, we are just about to depart for Frigiliana for our next visit, and cannot wait to get there! We hope you, too, manage to get there one day. You won't regret the decision to go, I promise you.
“Fantastic apartment , perfect location, lovely village.”
A lovely welcome from the family and Javier started the holiday, with a really good quality welcome pack in the apartment. A few more details about what to see would be good, but Javier is keen to share his knowledge of the area. The apartment is a great size and is really well equipped. There is a totally private terrace and a small pool(a bit too chilly yet!). Only a few KM to excellent beaches. The village is beautiful with a wealth of restaurants and bars. So good we booked another holiday there in August, and will be returning as often as we can. Never done that before!
