Booked as the reviews were good and the price right. On nearing the villa the road goes down to single track which, if you are a nervous driver, could be a bit daunting but you get used to it very quickly. On arriving, the villa is at the end of the road. The key safe is to the left of the main gate and is easy to operate. Then you see the stunning view. It is a complete WOW. Massive door to the villa, looks like the entrance was built around the door. Very spacious property, very clean and tidy. Limited TV but we took a Kodi box and the internet is good enough to stream. Beds appear to be memory foam and are very comfortable. We heard nothing from the agents while we were out there which is how we like it. We had no reason to contact them as we had no problems. Only downside, which was very small, was that the description says that there is a bar 1 km away. No idea where it was but to be fair we did not look that hard. Car, obviously is essential. Overall a great place and would highly recommend

Loved every minute of our stay. Great location between Nerje and Frigiliana and close enough to travel to places like the Lost Village. Our villa lived up to our expectations and hope to come back soon.

About Frigiliana

Villas for rent in Frigiliana

Situated in Malaga Province on Spain’s southern coast, Frigiliana is the jewel of Axarquía region, about a half hour drive north of Nerja and less than an hour east of Malaga city. Nestled at the foot of Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park, take in incredible views of the surrounding Andalucian mountains and sparkling Mediterranean, while enjoying a low-key holiday away from the main tourist crowds of the Costa del Sol. From its atmospheric streets and flower-adorned alleyways, to its traditional whitewashed houses and authentic village charm, it's not hard to see why Frigiliana was voted as 'the prettiest village in Andalucia' by the Spanish tourism authority.

The old Moorish quarter houses a wealth of small convents, quaint churches and historic monuments. Travel back in time and discover remnants of its rich past at the 17th century Casa del Apero, housing the Archaeological Museum in the heart of town. Those with a sweet tooth will love a visit to one of the traditional Thursday markets, where you can sample sugar cane delicacies fresh from the molasses factory in the 16th century Nuestra Senora del Carmen mansion. Immerse yourself in the colourful celebrations of the Festival of Three Cultures, in August. After sun down, the vibrant atmosphere and energetic crowds of the local bars will make you feel right at home.

Nature enthusiasts will love a stroll around Santa Fiora botanical garden in the heart of Frigiliana, but the real gem is Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park; get lost in nature with a hike around the amazing ravines, rugged crags and steep slopes, go climbing, or explore the world of exotic flora and fauna. The waterfalls and natural pools of the Higueron river are the perfect base for wild swimming and family picnics. Just 7km from the coast, sun-worshippers and beachgoers are spoilt for choice, with plenty of sandy beaches to pick from and at just a short distance from all the hustle and bustle of the busy coastal resorts.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa in Frigiliana

Whether you stay in one of our family-friendly villas with private pools or a secluded villa with stunning mountain views, you'll get to experience the best that this hidden gem has to offer. With a less than one hour drive from Malaga Airport, the capital of Malaga and neighboring Nerja, enjoy your holiday away from the busy crowds of the Costa del Sol, yet be within easy reach of everything it's famous for. 

Offering glimpses of the surrounding countryside and the coast below, explore the old Frigiliana's Moorish quarter and discover hidden corners, small corridors and small plazas adorned with ceramic tile panels, each telling the town's interesting history. Amongst a wealth of historic and cultural monuments in the heart of Frigiliana well worth a visit are the Archaeological Museum, the 17th century Old Fountain, the Church of San Antonio de Padua, the Arab's Castle ruins, the 16th century Nuestra Senora del Carmen mansion and the Hermitage of Ecce Homo.

There's more to Frigiliana than just rich history and flower-adorned streets and plazas; it's an ideal base for exploring the surrounding Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park. Venture off the beaten track and go hiking or climbing and discover the world of exotic flora and fauna. For the freshwater lovers, the waterfalls and natural swimming pools of the Higueron River are a perfect option. With a stunning backdrop of pine forests, avocado and mango trees, it also offers some fantastic picnic spots.

The beaches nearest to Frigiliana are in Nerja, 15 minutes’ drive away. Nerja’s two main beaches are Burriana and Torrecilla, which is just as lively, but significantly smaller. Playa Burriana, in the east of Nerja's centre, boasts a large, flat stretch of sand and pebbles, with all kinds of sporting activities, children’s play areas, shops, bars and restaurants. Playa Torrecilla is a small beach with an attractive promenade and the ruins of an old Moorish watchtower. The rocky peninsula at either end of Torrecilla beach are great spots for snorkelling and fishing. If you're after a peaceful day by the beach, visit nearby Torrox or Maro resorts.
