With something for everyone Frigiliana is a paradise. For walkers and mountain bikers with enchanting walks and rides for all abilities starting right in the village. For historians and culturalists the Moorish past remains visible today. For the beach lover Nerja is a busy seaside town five minutes drive away, set amidst cliffs overlooking rocky coves with many fine beaches and all the usual facilities of a Mediterranean holiday resort, while retaining the qualities of a typical Spanish small town.
Out and about : Within a short drive are several whitewashed mountain villages each with their own charm and many like Competa and Algaborro are on the famous “Ruta de Vino” (wine route) The awe inspiring Nerja Caves, are a fascinating, network of cathedral like underground caverns with the World's biggest stalactites. Maro, is a picturesque village with panoramic views across the sea and a small secluded beach.

Superb house and view + fantastic service
Rental period: 2 weeks in April 2008.
Never tried private rentals outside our home country, but this isn't the last time. Both house and sorroundings was here very well maintained and service provided by our freindly property keepers was extra ordinary. You will not be dissapointed! Even the mail correspondance, contract signing and payment process made us feel very comfortable. All over we experienced high attention from our property keepers if we had any querys or things to be sorted out.
The way to the house is good untill 3 km before - here starts a private road with rough concrete and steep hills. Rent a semi 4x4 (e.g. Nissan Qashqai). The stone path to the house is very beautiful with various plants. The house is very private and view over mountains and sea is amazing. The terraces (3) are well equiped and pool was clean and fresh! House is very spacious (with complete new patio), tasteful equiped and standard is very high all over. We as a young critical family give our best recommandations for a safe and joyful holdiday.
As the booking agent and customer liason for Villa Mimosa it is a real pleasure to have our work so highly praised by our first Danish guests - who were a married couple in their early thirties with a lovely 9 month old daughter.
I would like to add to Thomas's comments re the access that I drive to the villa in a standard Ford Mondeo and that the Majority of out guests rent cars like Ford Focus, Seat Ibiza, Peugot 207 etc and we have never had any guests encounter any access issues.( Borne out by the fact that Thomas recommends the villa for a "Safe" Holiday and is prepared to recomend us to friends and family). So I think that the sugestion of a small 4x4 may be a little of an overkill.
Great holidays in a perfect house!
This villa was the best villa we have ever stayed in so far. It is clean, very comfortable, nice furniture, well equipped and especially the different patios with spectacular views down to the sea impressed us every day.
Even our teenage children were impressed by this villa and enjoyed the clean and perfect pool area. We will come back for sure but then will rent a small SUV because the price for such a cosy and quiet atmosphere is a challenging way to get there for people who are are not used to drive in the hills:-)
A big thank you to Boz and Polly which were very helpful during the booking process and our stay. We could always contact them and got a quick reply or phone call.
Home from Home......Fantastic!
We have stayed in this property before and again it didn't disappoint in any way! Fantastic views, quiet location, beautiful,spacious and well equipped villa.
Thank you to Boz and Polly for all your assistance in the process making it seam free, and to Boz for the fabulous day canyoning, what an adventure!
Review of our stay at Villa Marta in August 2017
The villa was just as described and was comfortable, clean, spacious & well equipped. The area is particularly peaceful & quiet. The pool was superb and kept us cool during the week when the temperature was quite high. Boz was a great host and gave us some invaluable tips for our stay and the surrounding area. Frigiliana is a lovely, pretty, little village with some good places to eat in the centre. A trip into Nerja & the 'Balcon De Europa' is also worth a visit. You do need a car (easy & safe parking at the villa) to get the best out of the property but it is well worth it. We would happily stay in this property again.
Outstanding villa in a beautiful area
This was probably the best villa we have ever stayed in. The setting is superb and the facilities are excellent. The outdoor kitchen and dining table with barbecue is a terrific resource, and the pool with adjoining poolhouse containing a shower and toilet is great. The villa has air-conditioning in the living area and the upstairs bedroom -- very valuable in the summer heat. The drive down to the villa from the main road is not for the faint-hearted, but perfectly manageable. The managers of the property, Boz and Polly, were unfailingly helpful.
We had a fantastic fortnight in this beautiful villa. The weather was hot and the pool very well used. The villa is a real home from home, clean and well equipped with comfortable beds and well appreciated air conditioning. The nearby town of Frigiliana is a delight and the small streets and little squares are worth exploring. Boz was a very helpful contact and we felt well looked after. Highly recommended!
