Overview

About the property

House in Nerja area with stunning view of mountains and sea from the balcony in quiet urbanisation with swimming pools and lifequard. Two bathrooms, one upstairs and one down. A 10 minutes stroll to nearest beach. Situated in Punta Lara, a tranquil, very pretty pueblo of whitewashed houses - ideal for families and couples who like quiet, relaxing holidays.

The property is an end-of-terrace house with magnificant views from the balcony. It is equipped to a very high standard and pleasingly decorated throughout. Air conditioning and cable TV installed. Wifi is by pay-as-you go. There are two sets of golf clubs for use by our visitors. Free standing fans are available too.

The bedrooms have air conditioning for summer and electric heaters for the winter. Upstairs is heated by calor gas in the winter. There are even hot water bottles plus hair dryers in each bedroom.

The dining area seats six comfortably for indoor dining and the balcony has table and chairs for outside dining plus a selection of loungers.

All our visitors tell us that they had everything they would want in a holiday house - and more!

The communal pool, with separate children's pool, is just a minutes' stroll from the house. The pool is open from May to October. There is a lifequard in attendance at all times. There is a snack bar at the pool with simple home cooking. and there is also a restaurant/bar. Another restuarant is at the entrance to the urbanisation and another bar nearby the pool.

Beach chairs for taking to the beach and loungers are also included at the house.

The nearest beach - banana beach - is only a five minute walk away and can be seen from the balcony. There is also a beautiful little private beach which children love (cross over the road at the roundabout at the entrance to Punta Lara and go down the steps to the right of the Paraiso del Mer). But there are many other cove-type beaches around Nerja - well worth getting into the car for a day out. El Playa beach in the centre of Nerja is popular as you can combine shopping with lunch on the beach and an afternoon of sunbathing and swimming!

Although a car is recommended, arrangements can be made with us for collection from and to the airport.

There is a convenience shop over the road from the urbanisation and the supermarket with parking is a 20-minute walk into Nerja or three minute drive.

You can stroll into Nerja along the pavement or walk along the beach road. There are stops at beach restaurants along the way!

The nearest restaurant is at the entrance to the urbanisation - a minutes stroll away - the Hotel Avalon - where you can dine on the terrace looking out to sea and the lights of Nerja. There is also a lovely local Spanish-style restaurant which can be reached by a short stroll in the direction of Nerja. There is also a garden restaurant a two minute drive away situated on the beach where the sardinas are recommended!

The Alhambra Palace, Caves of Nerja and Moorish villages are a few of the many attractions of this region. It is advisable to book at the Tourist Office in Nerja or online before your holiday for the day you wnt to visit the Alhambra as it does get very busy at all times of the year.

Fiestas (with fireworks and bonfires) are very much part of life in Nerja and Nerja celebrates the festival of San Isidro, the patron Saint of farm workers in early May. The main parade of bulls and horses takes place on 15 May with almost everyone dressed in full Spanish costume. In June San Juan, the patron Saint of Fishermen takes place with beach bonfires and free beer and sardines on 24 June. The Nerja Carnival is celebrated for a full week during February and again in October.

The Caves of Nerja host musical concerts during July and August - an experience not to be missed!

Nerja itself is a very peaceful Spanish town with lovely cobbled walks through the town to buy your leather handbags and shoes. The Balcon d'Europa is a lovely spot to sit and watcha the world go by. Here you can sit with a coffee and croissants or sample the wines of Andalucia whilst enjoying local fresh calamares. After lunch you can then amble down to one of the beaches on either side of the Balcon.

Beautiful, peaceful, perfect for all

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to mainland Spain and we wanted to explore Andalucía, especially its history as well as its beaches, towns and inland villages and the mountains.

This house was a perfect location and had all the facilities for a lovely week, it felt very homely and comfortable. It is set in a nice peaceful area with lovely views across the sea, Nerja and the Tejeda Mountains yet minutes from all amenities. The house was ideal to tour afar by car and also walks to the local restaurants, beaches and Nerja were easy to get to especially the fruit and veg farm nearby which was excellent.

The owners Jo and Chris were very helpful especially with car hire, general information and transfer from the airport. The booking was smooth and they provided an in-depth guide to the house and surrounding amenities and beyond. The locals were friendly and the assistance of house caretaker if needed was great, thanks Zena.

We visited many places and the roads were great to drive on and within easy reach of historical and scenic areas. We enjoyed driving to Trevelez, Granada and along the coast.

Many thanks and we would recommend this to all.

Year After Year

  • 5 of 5

We were here again this year for a fortnight! We have come to this splendid place every year since 2003. It never loses its magic. The beach is enormous and it provides a grand walk into the town, which is a wonderful combination of the old and new. There is a huge variety of eating places and an enormous selection of days out. The house is splendidly situated - what could be better than sitting on the balcony watching the sun rise over the Mediterranean? The property is recently re-decorated and well-maintained. The manager lives just a few doors away and nothing is too much trouble for her or the owner. Highly recommendable.

Maison confortable idéalement située

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans la villa GRIANACH située idealement pour visiter l'Andalousie : plage à 300m, très belles plages (CALAHONDA, PLAYA DE MARO) très proches et des principales attractions andalouses : Frigiliana, Malaga, Grenade, etc....

La villa est très confortable (même si la cuisine et la salle de douche mériteraient un petit rafraichissement)et jouit d'une vue magnifique sur la mer.

L'environnement est très calme ,la piscine est très appréciable.

Nous remercions Simon et Xena pour leur accueil.
