3 bedroom villa to rent in Nerja, Costa del Sol
June 2019

We loved the villa and ita€™s location and any comments we make are to make you aware and by no means negative as we truly enjoyed our few days at the villa and would certainly consider returning. One further helpful comment (we hope) is there was no villa specific information folder to advise how to use the safe for instance or say where the washing machine was or where to put the rubbish. Again this is to help and not a criticism.

3 bedroom villa rental in Nerja, Costa del Sol, with shared pool
May 2019

The townhouse was really nice. Location was a bit out of the way for what we wanted but value for money. It was advertised as 3 bed 2 bathroom which was a little unfair. There was one full bathroom upstairs to be shared with the 3 beds. The other ‘bathroom ‘ was in under the stairs and consisted of toilet and basin and a very small shower. This would be more suitable for families with small children. The upstairs bathroom needs attention. Toilet not secured to the floor and shower not secured to wall correctly. Other than that we enjoyed staying there .

3 bedroom Nerja holiday villa rental with private pool
May 2019

Villa was in a high location overlooking resort. Accessibility was difficult and a bit scary. Views were outstanding, Outside area was clean and spacious. Pool gorgeous. Sunbeds old and need replacing. The villa itself was clean and spacious although kitchen very small. Had all 5 English tv channels on wide screen. Only real negative were the constant presence of black flies in the main bathroom we sprayed and killed about 50 per day but could not find how they got in or where they came from. Would recommend this villa and would return.

3 bedroom villa to rent in Nerja, Costa del Sol
February 2019

fabulous place to stay with family We have just spent a week at Villa Rosandra with our 3 children.. The villa was the best equipped of any villa we have stayed at. Relaxing days spent around the pool and nights chilling around the bbq area. We hired a car to get around and explore the city of Malaga. The food was great. Highly Recommend.

3 bedroom villa with private pool in Nerja, Costa del Sol
January 2019

It is very accurate and a good level of detail. Probably the best I have seen when looking around at villas to rent. Overall we loved the villa, the owner was very friendly and sorted the internet quickly for us. It was nice to meet him for a brief chat and that they cleaned it about half way through. Not had that service in other villas we have stayed in. Overall excellent and thats why we will book again :-)

Villas in Nerja

The resort town of Nerja (meaning 'bountiful spring' in Arabic) sits at the mouth of the famous Rio Chillar River at the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol on the southern coast of Spain. An hour's drive from Malaga Airport, it is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama mountains. This once sleepy fishing village is today one of the most popular resorts along the coast, with its authentic Andalusian charm, subtropical climate, beautiful dark sand beaches and vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Our villas in Nerja put you right in the heart of it all; from its historic centre with traditional streets and whitewashed houses adorned with geraniums, to its golden coastline and varied mountain landscape. In the old town, get a taste of the resort's rich history, with its sculptures, monuments and architecture. For spectacular views of the Mediterranean and its beaches, take a walk along the Balcón de Europa, otherwise known as the ‘Balcony of Europe’ - the centrepiece of town. Discover the natural wonders of the Nerja Caves, or explore the Sierra de Tejeda mountain range – a Natural Park with exotic flora and fauna, striking limestone rocks and plenty of hiking trails. 

High on everyone’s checklist should be a visit to its glorious dark sand and pebble beaches, as well as the sheltered coves that pepper its 16 km coastline. The clear waters, sheltered rocky landscape and excellent facilities mean that Nerja boasts some of the most family-friendly beaches in the Costa del Sol. Enjoy an abundance of water sports from water skiing to scuba diving, sailing and windsurfing. If you're looking to get away from the main buzz then the beaches of Carabeo in-between Calahonda and Carabeillo are perfect for a spot of undisturbed relaxation.

  • June to September may see daytime temperatures of up to 30°C, while the average temperature in winter is 14°C.
  • The average sea temperature in August is 25°C.
  • The mountain ranges of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama north of Nejra were declared a Natural Park in 1999.

A beginner's guide to villa holidays in Nerja

With the mountain ranges of Tejeda and Almijara Natural Park to the east, and Alahama mountain to the west, the unspoiled town of Nerja enjoys the kind of micro-climate that makes holidaying here an option all-year-round. With temperatures in the summer reaching 30°C at times, Nerja is a magnet for tourists looking to relax on the beaches of the Costa Del Sol. The gentle summer sea breeze means humidity levels stay fairly low, while the Sierra Nevada mountains an hour's drive away make Nerja the perfect winter destination for skiers.

The beating heart of Nerja is the Balcón de Europa, possibly the best known mirador (or lookout) in the Costa del Sol. This magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff was once the site of the great Moorish castle, and today is the perfect place to enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the Mediterranean and its beaches below, with a stunning backdrop of pine tree-adorned mountains.

Popular with families, take a day to explore the otherworldly, Cuevas de Nerja; otherwise known as Nerja Caves, home to the world’s largest stalagmite at 32m high! Cuevas de Nerja is about 20 minutes from Nerja’s old town and also has a museum and botanical garden. Take a tour around this stunning underground world and admire its paleolithic paintings. During the summer many concerts take place here, providing a beautiful backdrop to a night of music and dancing.

Nerja’s diverse coastal landscape boasts a contrast of beaches, from wide stretches of powdery sand to secluded coves and bustling urban areas. All of them are within walking distance from the town’s centre. Our villas by the coast put you at the heart of it all; from the sun-worshipper’s slice of paradise that is Burriana to the east of town, to the urban and family-friendly beaches of Torrecilla, Calahonda and Carrabeillo. Or escape the crowds and relax on your own patch on the quiet beaches of El Chucho and Maro. Nerja boasts such a wide choice that you could visit a new beach every day of the week if you wanted!

Did you know...

  • Nerja got its name from the Arabic word 'narixa,' meaning 'bountiful spring.'
  • The 17th Century El Salvador Church, set on the edge of the Bálcon de Europa, is well worth a visit for its baroque style architecture.
  • Next to Burriana beach are the beautiful Gardens of Capistrano Playa, where you'll find tropical gardens of exotic flora and fauna.
  • The Nerja Caves (Cuevas de Nerja) are a series of caverns stretching 5 km, home to the world’s longest and largest stalagmite. The Caves were declared a Heritage of Cultural Interest in 1985.
  • The 19th century Eagle Aqueduct on the outskirts of Nerja is declared a Site of Special Cultural Interest for its fascinating history.
  • If you're looking to get off the beaches for a day and explore with your family one of Andalucia’s most beautiful rivers, then a hike up the Chillar River is the one for you.
