Car: Not Necessary

In the heart of the historic, coastal village of Maro and just a 45 minute drive from Malaga airport. This beautiful unspoilt village is one of the very few in such original condition along the entire coast. The village is still mostly inhabited by Spanish people. Just a few kilometres from the hustle and bustle of the busy coastal town of Nerja this tranquil little village is a peaceful retreat. There are a handful of restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk and Maro beach is only a 15 minute walk away through farm land. Nerja is half an hours walk along a very popular walking/jogging pathway and only a few minutes by car. The famous caves of Nerja are nearby and the picturesque mountain village of Frigiliana only a few minutes drive away. Maro is a superb location for basing yourself as it has excellent access to many popular places that are of interest to holiday-makers, such as The Alhambra Palace and the city of Granada, Sevilla, Ronda, Malaga, Cordoba and many more.

Other Activities: Famous Nerja Caves, sight-seeing, water park, aquarium


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We have lived in Spain in the Alpjurras since 2003. We spent 3 years doing up the property in Orgiva and subsequently rented it out for holidays. We spent any spare time that we had, searching for another property but this time near to the sea. We were delighted when we found this old town house in the little Spanish village of Maro. We love the Spanish way of life and enjoy renovating properties. Although we both grew up in the UK (me in Surrey and Nigel in Manchester) I had spent 6 years living in Spain in the 1980's and wanted to come back here to live. Nigel was looking for a new adventure so was more than happy to try Spain.

Why the Owner Chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol):
This old town house is in the quiet Spanish village of Maro. within walking distance of bars, restaurants and a couple of shops. It is 5 minutes drive into Nerja or 30 minutes walk. The property has been done up to a high standard and is very comfortable. Well situated for sight seeing, shopping or just relaxing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is an authentic Spanish village. The bourganvilla in the courtyard, the views of Nerja and the sea from the upstairs patio and the way it lent itself to be modernised whilst being able to keep the character of the house, are what made us choose this property over the many others that we looked at over the 8 years it took us to find it.
