We have just returned from staying at this super accommodation and do not recognise the review posted immediately below.
Our experience has been very different from the moment we were greeted by our hosts, Sharon & Debbie; they showed us around, gave us tips and advice about local amenities and were on hand to answer any questions.
The apartment itself is beautifully appointed and we can’t understand why anyone would think otherwise; the furniture, lighting and decorative artwork are all in excess of the ‘norm’ and contribute to a homely and relaxed ambience.
The swimming pool is a well-kept private facility, a short 50 metre walk away. It is a good size with sunbeds provided; suitable cushions and parasols are stored in the apartment – an added consideration for guests. From our own experience, and that of the other users of the pool, there was no evidence of the issues raised in the previous review.
We agree that parking can be hit and miss but, given that it is free and in such a beautiful location, we are not surprised it can be at a premium in peak times; it is nothing that a little patience and maybe a short walk cannot rectify.
Some street noise does exist but given that we are in the heart of a vibrant village community it is not intolerable. Also, this has to be balanced against the stunning views from the balcony / bedrooms so we thought some isolated ‘noise’ was a price worth paying.
I would urge people to look beyond the last review and take note of the others posted here; these demonstrate that by far the majority of visitors rate this property very highly and, in our opinion, rightly so.
Thank you both for a wonderful stay.
The impersonal apartment is located right on a noisy highway, making it impossible to use the tiny terrace during the day.
Avoid this place if you dream of peace and quiet and beautiful views, like many places offer in Frigiliana.
We have been here regularly over the past 15 years and this is by far the worst place we have stayed.
Due to traffic noise from the road just outside the windows, and the apartment's interior, it is certainly not a good place for families with children.
The place, in no way, lives up to the 'luxuries' that the owner promises!
Instead, the apartment appears with its cheap furniture deciderably tacky and impersonal. The 'finest' were bought in IKEA...Sometimes there was a slight smell of sewage in the hall.
The price is thus far too high compared to what else you can get in Frigiliana.
The swimming pool is located in a building a piece away from the apartment.
You have to go out on the road to get there. The pool is not heated and is therefore cold. Worst of all: The pool had obviously not been cleaned for a long time and it flooded with large insects and dead worms in the water! We tried to clean it ourselves. But the net used for cleaning was (also) broken.
In short, the pool was useless.
It is extremely difficult to find parking near the apartment as the local sports center is directly opposite and also gives even more noise.
Never rent this place. There are plenty of other options in Frigiliana.
Friendly welcome with a cool drink after a long hot day of travelling. Welcome pack to greet us so we didn't have to shop until the next day. Marvellous! Very comfortable with everything thought of - a real home from home. Owners helpful and knowledgeable of local amenities, etc and have thought of everything a visitor could possibly require. Lots of ambience and history in the beautiful white historic village - highly recommended and would look to stay again in the future. Location good and central for access to village. Pool lovely and nearby. A great choice of restaurants to choose from and would recommend El Mirador for views and great food. Hosts very welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended :-)
Ideal location, only minutes walk from anywhere in Frigiliana, Loved that it was only 13 steps up from the road, made access so much easier.
Nothing was missing from the apartment , it had everything you might want, even a hair dryer.
The owners were very welcoming, showed us everything that we needed, information of shops, restaurants and bars, left us with a welcome pack which was very kind, didn't need to go to the shop for the first day.
Will be back.
I would not write anything but positive things about this apartment. It was perfect!
The apartment was spacious, well fitted and well furnished; the pictures didn't do it justice. The view from both balconies were beautiful.
Access to the shared pool was a short walk away. It had sun beds and was all very nice.
The location was central to frigliana and you only had to walk up more steps to be nestled in the beautiful streets of the old town.
The owner was quick to get in touch and we had no issues with correspondence.
Apartment is great, airy and comfortable, although the balcony is noisy being just above the street. The pool is only a short walk away, along the street. The location is special, great view and so close to so many fabulous restaurants.
