Thanks for making us feel so welcome, we had a wonderful week , the Cortigo was everything and more, and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break
We had a wonderful time at a fantastic villa with great views. The owners were people we would like to consider as friends! We would and will recommend this villa! Thank you, Maria and family.
The villa is very comfortable, just outside the village. There is everything what you need for a nice stay. The outside area is lovely, there is very nice garden with orange and lemon trees, big enough swimming pool and very comfortable space for barbeque. I would recomend this property and would love to to came back there one day. Also this property is safe and kids friendly, my two years old son really enjoyed beeing there.
Thank you Maria.
The location and views are amazing and the hosts very helpful and friendly. Whilst the weather was mixed we enjoyed a number of local walks and Frigalinia is not too far away but on an evening a taxi back is recommended. The villa has lovely gardens with orange and lemon trees great for Gin and Tonics! The hosts provided plenty of logs for the outside and indoor fire and cooking outside was great fun. The pool area was nice to relax by and the pool very inviting. There is a nearby restaurant which we would recommend. A truly wonderful holiday thank you to our Spanish hosts.
A truly idyllic location on the hills overlooking the pretty white village of Frigiliana.
This is a very well appointed cortijo where absolutely everything was provided for us - this included a selection of cold meats, cheese, tea / coffee, bread and wine on our arrival.
Maria, our host is a genuinely warm person who was there with the rest of her lovely family to greet us. Her written English is perfect and her spoken English is very good also.
The cortijo is in a beautiful location and was immaculately presented. The views over the valley were spectacular.
It was only a 3-4 minute drive to Frigiliana where there's a good selection of places to eat and drink and the main town of Nerja with well known supermarkets is just a little further along the road.
There was a good internet signal for all my computing requirements including receiving British TV and movies via bbc iplayer / amazon fire tv stick and netflix.
I would highly recommend this cortijo as a holiday home. Although we visited in January and it was a wee bit cooler, it was still a lovely relaxing break.
If you get the chance, try a visit to the 'lost' village of El Acebuchal. It's a short but challenging drive / walk away from the cortijo and has amazing scenery and an equally amazing history. In 1948, the Spanish authorities believed the townsfolk were harbouring anti-Franco rebels and ordered the entire community to abandon their homes and it remained a ghost town, quite literally 'lost in time' for the next 50 years!
In 1998, a multi-year project began to rebuild the village bit by bit and the finished result today is well worth seeing - at least once.
The Villa is just outside Frigiliana, drive through the old town, out the other-side and then up the hill about 7kms. Sounds a long-way but only 25 minutes walking mainly downhill from the Villa into the village across the valey, and then a taxi-back.
Well-appointed with a superb pool, set in amongst lemon/olive/mango/fig etc. trees, some of which found there way back to us as a helping hand toward breakfast or lunch!
You'll find a dishwasher, washing machine, air-conditioning, wi-fi, 2 double bedrooms and a third with two single beds, two bathrooms with shower rather than bath. The TV is fine if you want it on, but we didn't, although the stations are local and national rather than international.
The parking is off road and the villa is safe and secure behind a large metal gate. Additionally if you don't want to walk into town or cook, then you must try Bar El Cerro whose driveway is adjacent to the Villa's. We had lunch and an evening meal there, English is spoken by the owner, and the menu is also in English, wholesome Spanish food with a doggy bag provided one evening when I could eat all that was on the plate!
All you would want including a BBQ, shaded areas for sitting / eating and sun umbrellas are to be found there and the pool was cleaned for us on one of the days we were there, but done early in the morning so as not to wake you up which was kind.
