The beach is within easy walking distance (5/10 minutes) with bars and restaurants. The charming town of Nerja is a short bus ride (1 euro, frequent service), a 5 minute drive or a 30 minute beach/road walk away. Nerja is lovely; full of charming shops, restaurants, tapas bars and beaches. There is also an area for youngsters 18 to mid 20s with late bars and a night club

Stunning property, stunning location
By Sally Phillips on 28-Sep-2019
We were a family party of 10, all kids adult now, however. This villa was perfect for all of us, with lots of different social areas, enough room to spread out & do our own thing or to get together to eat & play.
The villa is beautifully presented, in beautiful grounds, with plenty of crockery, cutlery & glassware for all of us. the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The beds are super comfortable and the linens very good quality.
The owners are very nice to deal with & very responsive to even the most unusual questions, they know the area really well & make great recommendations.
You do need a car, but there is private parking for 3/4 vehicles. Access to amenities is a short drive - there is a beach and a couple of bar/restaurants within walking distance, but the climb back was a bit much for a couple of our broken contingent.
By SARAH CAPP on 16-Aug-2019
We had a wonderful holiday at your beautiful villa. Loving the garden and met the gardener, he's quite a character.
We had a few meals, our favourite is Restaurant 34 which we have been to before and it was just as good. Tried La Bottega which is number 1 on trip advisor and is very good, also had a very cheap meal at Little Italy, ridiculously cheap, 43 euros for 7 pizzas, 1 bottle of cava, 4 beers, 2 rose and a coke! Redondo for tapas was great. Mum for a curry was delicious. A local recommended Copa Vino however we never got here, so may be one for you to try. It looks good.
Online shopping worked a treat apart from it didn't register number 43 for some reason so the man just drove round tooting his horn! Used taxis in to town when we went out for meals, a few of them called your villa 'rich man's house'.
Thanks again and hope to go back again, maybe in another 4 years.
Family holiday in nerja
By K MCKENNA on 06-Jun-2019
Lovely property with amazing views. If you have a family I would advise you need a car, however the bus services are good. It's just the hill to contend with but that's a small price to pay for the beautiful views. Lovely hamper on arrival.
By ALEXANDRA DAVIES on 10-May-2019
One word springs to mind when summing up this beautiful villa ‘WOW’
We have stayed in numerous Villas within Nerja & different parts of the world but this is the best by a country mile!!!
The villa itself is decorated to an extremely high standard, and has very home from home feeling to it.
Our 3 boys had lots of fun in the pool & had a great time playing table football in the cinema/games room!!
On a final note, the villas breathtaking views are out of this world!!!
Tony & Toni have thought of everything to ensure a memorable holiday is had by all!!!

A beautiful house with a stunning view
By Eva K on 11-Oct-2018
We stayed at this fantastic house for a week in october. We were there with our children and grandchildren. We liked it very much. Each family had their own bathroom and the house was very well equipped. Our grandchildren really appreciated the TV/play room. The house was situated in a very peaceful and quiet area and it was also near to the centre of Nerja. We will absolutely recommend this house!!!!
By Beverley Ashby on 31-Aug-2018
The villa surpassed all our expectations from the moment we arrived. It is extremely well equipped with everything you need to ensure a great stay. Everything was extremely clean and well maintained and it is obvious that the owners Toni and Tony go that extra mile to ensure the villa feels like home from home. We never tired of the wonderful sea views from the terrace. Nerja itself is a lovely holiday destination with a friendly atmosphere and lots of good tapas bars and restaurants to choose from. It is only a short bus ride away or a lovely walk along the beach. Toni and Tony could not have been more helpful or accommodating.
Amazing family holiday
By ROB C on 23-Aug-2018
The Villa was booked to accommodate a family of 10. Ranging from 4 to 70.
The accommodation exceeded expectations in every aspect. The facilities provided were exceptional providing everything you could possibly require and more.
The Villa was Immaculate.
During our stay (2weeks) the bedding was changed and pool and gardens maintained.
The management team located in Nerja we’re extreamly professional and most helpful.
During our satay we took full advantage of the local attractions and suggestions located on the notice board.
We all agreed that we would re-book without hesitation.
Most memorable family holiday.
A beautiful villa in a stunning location
By Maggie C on 23-Aug-2018
The fact that this was our third time at Tony and Toni's villa should give some indication of how much we love it. You arrive through the archway, walk up the steps next to the beautifully tended garden, looking down onto the inviting pool and beyond to the view....oh that view! 'Stunning' seems an overused word but it really is that and you can drink it in from practically everywhere in the villa. The villa itself is spotless, very well maintained and equipped, and tastefully furnished to a high standard. There's also plenty for kids of every age to play with in the games room, our favourite being the table football! As for Nerja itself, we love it. It's easy to get to from the villa, it's really picturesque with good beaches and the choice of shopping, eating and drinking places is fabulous. The tapas bars especially are a must! The service we've received from Tony and Toni has always been impeccable and above all, very friendly and helpful. We would recommend their villa to others without hesitation.
By Sandie P on 31-Jul-2018
All 7 of us loved staying at this villa! We brought all of our adult children for our 30th anniversary and this villa was perfect. We all had room to spread out and the pool was wonderful. We also loved the little beach near the villa. Kitchen was well appointed for evenings when we decided to stay in and cook. A bit of a hike up and down the hill but was worth it for the spectacular views! ( we decided not to rent a car but might be worth it if you have mobility issues) We will definitely come back!
By Michelle H on 23-Jul-2018
Nothing can prepare you for the first views from the villa... Amazing. We enjoyed the sheer luxury of everything inside, making our stay as a family of five one to cherish and remember. The biggest dilemma was where to sit and enjoy the sea views as there were so many of them. There was a wonderful welcome pack to get us started and we would certainly recommend to others!
Spectcular views. cant wait to go back !
By Helena D on 22-May-2018
Absolutely loved our little break here! The villa is beautiful and the views are just stunning. Location is great, not far from the main town which offers a huge variety of tapas bars and restaurants if you fancy a night out. We have recommended this villa to friends and family already and looking forward to returning again ourselves! Perfect!

The villa is amazing and the views are spectacular.! It is fresh and clean and most importantly so well equipped with everything you need whether you are travelling with kids or without.
Last time we stayed here my baby girl was only 5wks old so I didn't need too much but this time she was nearly three and our new baby boy was 5months..... Couldn't believe how much they had there in the games room that I had not seen the last time. A huge box of duplo lego, chalk boards, dolls., playmats, etc and all kinds of floatables for the pool!
Last time I left here wondering would we ever get to stay there again nearly three yrs later it did not disappoint and I really hope as does my now three yr old to return in a couple of years again. So relaxing. You do need a car tho, it's 3km out but with a car so easy to pop in and out. The villa is worth staying that little bit out. I looked you will not get the same quality any closer.
As for the owners and the letting agency...... Topnotch! Both times so easy and helpful to deal with. Hope this helps you make your decision.

Dagmar S.Kent, UK
Like all other reviewers I can only echo the main sentiment - the villa and booking process are fab. Sufficient crockery and cutlery, working pots and pans, loads of glasses including good quality plastic glasses. A very lovely welcome pack was the icing on the cake. We had pretty bad weather (not unusual in the midst of January) but just enjoying a few hours with the amazing view from the tarrace wiped away months of stress. Very quiet location, Nerja is lovely. The response time from both Tony/Toni and John were faultless and super quick, we were gutted having to leave. We are unable to plan any leave at the moment due to a family situation, but would otherwise have booked at least one more stay late autumn right there and then! The pool was too cold so cannot comment, but looked fab also. Thank you Tony and Toni for sharing your home and making guests more welcome than I have experienced in 5 star hotels! We very much are looking to return!
Expected good, got great!
By Peter G on 15-Jan-2018
Fabulously stocked property, feels like they have thought of everything. Surpassed expectations, wonderful location, quiet, private and management company were outstanding when we needed to call on them.
By Yvonne F on 17-Nov-2017
Fantastic villa, amazing views to wake up to every morning.
Everything with in the villa was just perfect, so well equipped and maintained to a very high standard.
Kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the cinema room.
All the beds are extremely comfy and the added bonus of the air con for the warm nights was great.
We were staying here for a family wedding in Nerja and although the villa is out of town, its still so easy to get into Nerja. The bus into Nerja goes from the bottom of the hill where the bus stop is . Only 1euro into the town and very easy to get a taxi back to the villa.
Overall we were more than happy with our stay and would highly recommend Tony & Toni who will take good care of you and your booking from start to finish.
We would definitely return again if we are visiting Nerja
Eins tolles Ferienhaus in einer schönen Gegend
By Patrick T on 16-Nov-2017
Mit 4 Erwachsenen und 4 Kleinkindern haben wir den Aufenthalt in Nerja sehr genossen. Das Haus bietet viel Platz, hat eine herrliche Aussicht auf das Meer und ist nahezu perfekt ausgestattet. Das Wohnzimmer, der große Balkon und der Garten samt Pool boten den Kinden genug Platz zum Austoben. Selbst für 8 Personen bietet der Balkon genug Platz um gemeinsam zu essen oder einfach nur die Sonne zu genießen. Hervorzuheben sind auch die sehr guten Betten und Matratzen (nicht immer üblich in Spanien). Anfragen bei den Besitzern und dem dortigen Ansprechpartner wurden sehr schnell und hilfsbereit beantwortet. Danke!

By Nick W Shropshire on 29-Aug-2017
The pictures of this villa give you flavour of what it is all about. But the villa is even better than the pictures. Tony and Toni the villa owners are a pleasure to deal with and are very professional. The villa itself is 5 star, you can tell the owners use it, as it has a lovely homely feel. The gardens and pool area are kept beautiful and the facilities are fantastic. My teenage son particularly loved the cinema room. We also enjoyed using the large communal pool and visiting the beach by the Restinga Restaurant. We are already missing the beautiful sea views, which you have from every part of the villa. Thanks for a fantastic holiday.
Looking forward to ur next visit!
By Frank C on 04-Aug-2017
lovely property with super views and every convenience you could possibly require. Situated in a peaceful hilltop location yet within 5 minute drive from the centre of Nerja, which is a fabulous little town, much of which is pedestrianised and packed with excellent eateries , bars and shopping and lovely beaches. Would highly recommend.
By Kim S on 30-Jul-2017
Well what can I say ? Another fantastic holiday at this outstanding villa. Top quality accommodation, location and views. The owners, Toni and Tony can not do enough to make sure you holiday is perfect from beginning to end. Also a big thank you to John who is on call while you are in nerja and is always around to assist. A true home from home, no doubt we will return soon for yet another visit ! Thanks for sharing your home.
One amazing Villa!
By Stephanie I on 08-Jun-2017
Stayed here for a wedding in Nerja with my friends and we couldn't of been more happier with the Villa. It was in a perfect location, only 5-10 mins in a taxi to the town which cost around €10!! The Villa was absolutely spotless, there wasn't one bad thing about it. It had everything you needed in it and the owners also left a lovely little hamper with all your necessities in it on arrival. I would highly recommend this Villa 100%!!! Absolutely stunning and amazing value.
Fab u lous . girls holiday
By Liz S. on 26-May-2017
We had to return to this gorgeous place to relive our memorable week last year. The sun shone, the tapas was amazing (more about that in a minute) and the villa was every bit as lovely as we remembered it .... that view, just stunning.
We didn't realise but Nerja has a special tapas event in June in which various bars offer specialities of the region. What a great fun way to explore Nerja and try local food. It was an experience!
Thank you Toni and Tony for more fab memories to treasure.
Fantastic villa with amazing views
By Angela Z. on 22-May-2017
This was my second visit to this fabulous villa. It is exactly as the other reviews describe! The location is stunning with amazing views from the terrace and pool area. The villa is extremely well equipped and Tony and Toni have thought of everything you might need to make for a perfect holiday. The villa is in a quite location yet within easy reach of Nerja town. There is a convenient local bus service, 1 euro each way and taxis are plentiful - around 9 to 10 euros. We also walked into Nerja a number of times which takes around 35 minutes. There are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants in Nerja to suit every taste and budget. We also ate at a nice fish restaurant which is within easy walking distance of the villa and had great paella! There are also a number of large supermarkets including a Lidl. Everything you need for a great holiday and I will definitely recommend this villa and plan to return again next year!

We have just returned home from an eight night stay at 'Casa Toni'.
One word sums this place up 'WOW'!!!!
We have stayed in a lot of wonderful villas over the years, but none of them come close to this.
On arriving, a welcome pack greeted us with all of the necessary goodies needed to tide us over until our visit to the shops. My Father in Law loved the Magdalena cakes!!!
The age range within our party was between 8yrs-76 & this villa catered for all of our needs.
Lots of fun was had during the day around the pool & down in the cinema room where the boys had table football competitions with their Dad & Grandad!!!!!
The decor is lovely & feels very homely! The views from the villa are spectacular & breath taking, better than you could ever imagine!!!
We truly had a wonderful time and look forward to returning to Casa Toni!!
By Tanya H on 03-Apr-2017
What an amazing villa. It is furnished to a very high standard, there is nothing they haven't thought of. The furnishings are lovely and the beds are beautiful and so comfy. We were given a lovely hamper on arrival which contained all the essentials so didn't need to shop straight away which was very thoughtful of the owners. It even included 2 bottles of wine . The views from the villa are amazing. And with 3 different seating areas the sunshine is never far away. If you can drag yourself away then Nerja is the place to go. A bus from the bottom of the hill is just 1 euro, a taxi 9 euros, or a 30 minute walk along the beach front. So many places to eat and drink. From local tapas bars to lovely restaurants, to suit all budgets. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, a beautiful place and I will definitely be making a return journey.
Everything you could wish for
By Cedric B on 01-Nov-2016
We visited this fantastic villa in October 2016 as a family of 5 adults.
What a fantastic villa this one is. We have stayed in several villa’s in Spain, this one has to be our favourite. It is not a holiday let but is home from home with everything and more you could wish for, and then of course there is the ocean view. You will never tire of looking at the blue sea and watching the sun rise whilst eating breakfast on the balcony. Or having an evening glass of wine whilst the sun sets!
If like me you are sceptical about booking villa’s through Owners Direct where the owners do not give many details away, Tony and Toni who own this villa will make you feel very comfortable about the whole process. They are UK based and from my initial enquiry I had booked the villa within the hour, the deposit and balance transactions were made as easy as possible.
We also received an A to Z about the villa from Tony which was so detailed and helpful. The directions from Airport to Villa and return were absolutely spot on. No need for any sat nav.
On arrival there was a welcome pack for us, which was much appreciated and we had a welcome call from John who looks after the property for Tony and Toni.
The villa is about 2 miles from the town of Nerja,
If like us you have not been to Nerja you must try it. A lovely Spanish town, with endless restaurants and street cafes.
We were fortunate to be there for their local fiesta, so witnessed firework displays and it was so lovely to see many locals dressed in their national costumes
We would highly recommend both the villa and the area of Nerja and would love to return again in the not too distant future!
Many thanks Tony and Toni for the use of your villa, we as a family really enjoyed our time in Ladera del Mar

We have just come back from a family holiday after spending a week in this fabulous villa with stunning views. We were a family of 9 6 adults and 3 children aged 15,12 and 2 we all had a fantastic time the villa is outstanding and very homely tit is really well equipped and there was plenty of room for all of us and we felt very comfortable.
There is a lovely cinema and games room in the basement which is a real bonus although we did not use it because the weather was so lovely we were happy to enjoy the pool and outside area.
Nerja itself is a lovely town and has some nice bars and restaurants we did not have a car but it has a very good bus service which goes into town for a euro yo can also get a bus to all the surrounding tourist attractions like the Caves ,Water park ,Granada the taxi are also very reasonable between 8 and 10 euro.
Toni and Tony were very helpful before we left in sending us lots of information about the villa and area it is a very beautiful home. John the agent in Spain is very friendly and helpful he arranged the airport transfer for us which was there waiting for us and was on time for our departure we also had a late flight home so John arranged for us to leave our luggage at the villa for the day which we really appreciated. We also had a lovely get you in pack which was a lovely touch with something for all of us.
Thank you Toni Tony and John we had a fantastic holiday and will be back we will also recommend to our family and friends

On arrival at the villa, everything was spotlessly clean. The standard of the furnishings were incredibly high and the villa has everything you could possibly need including a great coffee machine and a lovely ice bucket! The bedrooms were all a very good size, comfy beds and plenty of hangers in the wardrobes. The pool area was spacious enough for us all. The villa, set in a quiet neighbourhood, offers amazing views, so a favourite pastime was sitting on the terrace looking out to sea. The kids loved the cinema room and the table football.
The manger, John was very efficient replacing the toaster and the microwave and the owners were incredibly helpful when I was asking for recommendations of restaurants to go to for a birthday celebration.
Nerja itself, is a lovely town and offers some amazing restaurants, bars and shops. If you want a special meal, head to Restaurant 34 where we had their speciality. Lovely setting, food and service. We went in to town every other night, the cost of a taxi is approx. 8 euros each way. You can walk in to town, taking approx. 30 mins. The local beach at the bottom of the hill is great, a lot of Spaniards tend to go here and there are 2 restaurants here.
We seemed to frequent the supermarkets! We tried 3 of them - Lidl, Supersol & Mercadona.
We had an amazing holiday which we can't recommend highly enough. This is the best villa we have stayed in and we hope to return.

Before our holiday began we were being taken care of by the owners Mr and Mrs Barnett and John Trevelyan from Burrianna properties,who sorted out taxis to meet us at the airport, and even emailed me with opening times for the local shops. We were a party of 6 with a 2 yr old and an 11 week old baby, the pool was wonderful with loads of pool toys for children and adults! we didn't hire a car this time but taxis were readily available.,so ..if it's a fun filled family holiday or a relaxing time with a gro

We had a wonderful time staying with friends in Tony and Toni's Villa. The property looks spectacular and is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. The views from the balcony are stunning and overall, the house has a spacious feel about it. The pool area gets the sun all day and the pool itself is a good size and well maintained. The basement has been tastefully converted into an entertainment room containing the worlds biggest TV! and a high quality table football game.
Shopping and entertainment is found in Nerja town which is a short bus ride away. The town has a very large number of restaurants, bars and shops to suit all budgets. The town has a relaxed feel and we never felt hassled in any way.
We are planning to return next year!

Relaxing, hassle free holiday
By Diane L. on 03-Jul-2016
I have just returned from a great relaxing holiday with my husband. Toni and Tony the owners of this property could not have been more helpful and efficient during the booking process. John the agent in Nerja was also exceptionally helpful and friendly. The previous reviews are all spot on. Villa and views spectacular. Villa location was perfect for us. The urbanisation in which the villa is located is well maintained with pretty landscaping and it is so quiet. A car is not essential as you can get a taxi into Nerja for around 8 Euro, we did this several times but there is a bus available for 1 Euro if you want a cheaper option. We had a hire car and can recommend trips to Ronda, The Alhambra in Granada which are day trips or local villages of Vinuela which has a hotel (The Vinuela Hotel) which overlooks a lake. Frigiliana which is just down the road and Maro Caves. Competa up in the mountains is a nice drive out if you are not bothered by climbing the mountain roads in the car! However, Nerja itself has everything on offer. The ladies clothes shop in the Balcon by the church is a find. It looks tiny but the main of the shop is under ground and is worth a visit if you need some retail therapy! The Spanish locals are really friendly, Restaurant 34 (or was it 42!!) is expensive compared to most local restaurants but is well worth the money. We also enjoyed the various tapas bars but not the one by the Church which caters for the tourists not the Spanish. There are too many good bars and restaurants to mention. Beaches are also excellent, we preferred the small beach in Maro but if you are looking something with more facilities then Burriana Beach has it all. Try Ayo's for Paella on the beach. On the road back to the villa from Nerja and before the Avalon roundabout on the left hand side there is a there is a turning into a car park which leads to a beach and there are two beach bar restaurants which do also do great Paella and tapas, the traditional way. We have visited Nerja several times and will definitely be back. Nerja retains it's traditional Spanish identity. We have recommended this villa to our family and friends. Thanks Toni, Tony and John....we had the best time!

We had a fabulous girls' week at this beautiful villa. It is stylishly furnished, comfortable and quiet with many personal touches for your comfort and enjoyment,. There is a cinema room downstairs, which we didn't use, but what a great feature for any youngsters. The villa has stunning views over the sea which are truly breathtaking and amazing sunsets that cover the entire horizon. It is an uplifting setting (and romantic had we had our partners with us!).
Nerja is easily accessible by bus or taxi but we walked there almost every day about 35 minutes; it isn't far and we enjoyed the exercise . Nerja has a lot to offer being a charming town, shops aplenty, great tapas bars and restaurants (all prices). We enjoyed all the restaurants we visited but No.34, we all thought ,was exceptional.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ladera del Mar and will happily return and recommend.
A special 'thank you' to Toni and Tony , the owners,....it was a memorable trip for all the right reasons.

I stayed in the villa with 3 friends for 5 nights at the end of April. The villa is stunning with amazing views.
The bedrooms are all beautifully furnished with extremely comfortable beds.
The dining terrace is perfect for evening drinks. The kitchen has everything you need, even a funnel for filling small bottles of water from the large bottles we bought!
The pool area is spacious with plenty of sun beds which have lovely thick mattresses.
As the the weather was perfect during our stay we didn't use the cinema/games room, but it is perfect for families if the weather isn't good.
The resort of Nerja which can be reached on foot or by the local bus or taxi is very pretty with lots of great bars and restaurants.
Thank you Toni and Tony for such a wonderful place to spend our holiday, hopefully I will return for a family holiday.

Well what a great week we had at Casa Toni. The Villa was superb, the view was to die for and all the facilities and equipment offered were second to none. You will want for nothing, trust me. The owners were great all the way through the booking possess, the local management company solved our only minor problem without any fuss.
Nerja was a fabulous surprise, there was a fiesta on with music, fireworks and dancing in the streets, full of Spanish people and friendly tourists like us. We all said that we would defiantly return to Nerja one day.
Oh, and the fish soup at the La Restinga beach, just down the at the local beach, OMG, I would go back for that alone!
Best holiday ever!

This villa was recommended to me and I must say it was the best holiday we have ever had.From the minute we arrived we relaxed and couldn't believe what a comfortable feel the villa had whilst also having the wow factor.An unexpected welcome pack (including wine) was a lovely thoughtful touch and sums up the facilities which were second to none, and there is every home comfort you could need , a lot of thought has gone into making this such an amazing holiday.The pool area is fantastic and we made full use of the pool and enjoyed the peace and quiet.The bedrooms and bathrooms are spotless ,very elegant and we slept like a dream as the mattresx was so comfy.At the bottom of the hill is a bus that takes you into nerja for €1 where you can eat cheaply or pay restaurant prices, but whichever you do, you cannot fail to be impressed by the atmosphere as you walk around the streets, a lovely town , perfect for couples or families.All in all a perfect holiday will be booking again for next year.A big thank you to Tony and Toni the owners who have worked hard (and succeeded) to make sure you never forget your time here.
Recommendable villa in Nerja
By Ivo R on 30-Jul-2015
We had a great stay in Tony and Toni's villa. The house is beautiful and large, in shiny brand new condition. Very well, generously, equipped with quality furniture and other items, and it is extremely complete. The views are spectacular and uncompromised, the pool and pool area are larger than they look on the pics. The house is located in a pretty and quiet neighbourhood, and Nerja as a town, while a touristy beach town, amongst that kind of towns is a nice and relatively unspoilt one.
We can wholeheartedly recommend this property, it offered us more than what we thought we had been promised.
Beautiful villa in perfect location
By Karen H on 23-May-2015
Myself and two friends spent five days at this amazing villa.The location is perfect, with panoramic seaviews from the two large terraces. The area is very peaceful and relaxing but you are only a five minute bus journey away from the town with its plentiful bars,shops and restaurants.
The decor and furnishings in all the rooms are chic and stylish. The kitchen is modern and large and has everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. There is a large table and chairs on the terrace outside the kitchen if you wish to eat al fresco and this is where you will get the best views of the sea.
The bedrooms are furnished to a very high standard with extremely comfortable beds and large wardrobes and, as with every room in the villa, are spotlessly clean.
The pool area is clean and well maintained with plenty of sunbeds and again is quiet and relaxing. There is also a games/cinema room which is suitable for the whole family.
The owners were very helpful and i would highly recommend this stunning property.
Looking forward to booking for next year for a longer stay.

An absolute amazing property in a fantastic location.
We took a private transfer from the airport and were at the property within 50 minutes. The property has a beautiful and secure gated entrance with large driveway leading up to the pool area. with this and the that that the property is high above the road it is both extremely private and safe for children to play around the pool on their own whilst we drank wine and enjoyed the spectacular views from the balcony.
The villa is furnished to a very high standard with marble throughout the property. The weather was a little changeable because we went at easter so having UK Satellite TV and Wireless Internet in the property was a god send, especially for our young children on the days when sun took its time to appear!
The children absolutely loved the generous sized pool and played on the inflatables that are provided by the owners from he first minute we arrived.There is plenty of space around the pool for the sun loungers and there is also a table and chairs to lunch/snack in this area too.
Nerja town is a 5 minute taxi ride away and has some absolutely wonderful places to eat and drink. Our favourite was the Marbella bar/restaurant near the Balcon de Europe. We did eat in the property itself a few nights and the kitchen/dining area is superb. There is a super market just off the first island in town and prices are very cheap compared to the UK for most items especially wine! We did a large shop and caught a taxi home from just around the corner so even if you don't have a car, getting shopping is not a major task even with young children in tow.
There are a couple of restaurants down the hill from the villa and on the beach. We tried both and had lovely meals in the day at both. We also had a day at Burianna beach which is the nicest in the area with lots to keep children occupied.
In summary this is an absolutely stunning property to stay at, in a quiet and safe location. We have already booked it again for next year we were that impressed with it.
Fabulous villa with amazing views!
By Angela Z on 27-Jun-2014
Enjoyed a great week here with friends at the end of April. A fabulous villa tastefully furnished and extremely well equipped. It has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday. The views from the balcony and pool area are stunning! The villa is in a quite position yet within easy reach of Nerja either on foot (approx 45 mins flat walk) by bus or taxi( approx 8 euros) Nerja is a lovely resort with many bars and restaurants catering for every budget. For a special treat try restaurant 34 which Toni kindly booked for my birthday celebration. I would highly recommend this villa and look forward to returning in the future.
