This is my favourite of the many terraces, We call it the “Look out Post” as it provides 360 degree views of sun,sea & mountains
Located 50 km east of Malaga and 7 minutes from Nerja beaches. Voted most beautiful village in Andalusia. Frigiliana is an ancient Moorish village perched high in the hills overlooking the Costa del Sol , with views to the Mediterranean Sea.
This spacious penthouse apartment has all the convenience and comfort of modern living , yet it is discretely located in this ancient village. Three grand terraces almost the size of the apartment ! Every room has huge windows maximising your sunshine time. One terrace is elevated like a” Look Out Post”. The Community Village Swimming Pool, open in July and August, is within a 5 minute walk. Many excellent beaches 10 minutes drive.
“BREATH TAKING ,OUTSTANDING ,ENTHRALLING,” as a guest told me last summer.
” The terrace is awesome and everyday here is an unprecedented experience . Walk along the Rio Higueron through the parque natural, wading through the shallow mountain waters. We assure you: unforgettable !!! Wander around the romantic, white washed authentic village.”
The two spacious double bedrooms are equal in size and both have double sliding doors to the terraces, as does the living room and dining area. Living room, with open plan dining area and serving hatch to the kitchen, making it very cozy and inviting. Fully equipped kitchen great for cooking. The bathroom is modern with bath and shower , washer and dryer. There are canopies, tables ,chairs and adjustable sun loungers. One terrace in the sun and another smaller, is in the shade, which is great for siesta.
Across the road from from the apartment building is a proper Spanish grocery shop, the COVIRAN, small, but Jose sells almost everything to suit your daily needs ! Even his own olive oil.
Wander through the narrow cobbled streets and passage ways of the village and you will be impressed , maybe even in love. Plenty of tapas bars ,that the locals eat in too. The wines of region, specially the reds are charming . More orange and lemon trees, bouganvilla , almond fig and olive trees . Frigiliana is a town of colourful festivals; see the old castle ruins, the pottery works, arts and craft shops, guitar, local artists, wine tasting. Don’t forget to do a night of tapas bar hopping – In the apartment you will find a box containing maps and suggestions for wandering tours, restaurants and excursions. Nearby is Nerja where you can usually catch some Flamenco dancing in various bars and restaurants or visit an event in the Cultural Centre. Check out the monthly magazine with all events, available at the Tourist Office in Nerja. We took a few trips to places such as the Sierra Nevada , Seville, Granada, Gibraltar Ronda. Marbella, Cordoba .

Interaction with Guests
Arrival and departure for key hand over and entrance in to the apartment.
Many little characteristic shops and excellent ” Real Spanish” restaurants in charming settings. Usually the restaurants are found at the very end of the passageways. Delightful quiet setting, lots of white painted pueblo style houses , clean & tidy streets and passageways , Don’t be surprised if you see mules delivering goods up some of the stairs or called, as in the old days.
We have our own ‘Montmartre’ : painters working in the open air, higher up in the village, where there is also often a guitar player. I have it on authority he is very good. No official opening hours, completely informal, always a surprise if you “catch” one of them.
We can provide a baby cot and and high chair on request.
In late August , four days of celebrating the 3 Cultures of Frigiliana . Without a doubt the tapa route is one of the most popular activities with the vast majority of visitors taking part. The idea It wasn´t created as a competition however, every year hundreds of people pack the streets to complete the route. Other people prefer to enjoy the celebrations at a slower pace with friends.
Gastronomy is also very apparent at the festival, each year, various restaurants design menus that are relative to the 3 cultures theme offering Sephardic, Arabic or Christian menus, not usually offered throughout the rest of the year.
Walking about the cobbled streets and passage ways, a few cars. Buses and taxis, cheap and good.
