About Adrian Bredero

About 15 years ago we, my wife and I, travelled through Spain for the first time. Before I was more interested in France since I was brought up by a Francophile father. My wife had been studying in Malaga and wanted me to see the beauty of southern Spain. I was immediately impressed by the unspoilt beauty and the wild nature you can find almost everywhere. After a few holidays driving around all parts of this magnificent country, we were struck by the perfect balanced True Spanish Nerja area. What started off as the well known window watching of estate agents soon became more and more serious. We have seen hundreds of houses. My wife loved to buy some kind of front line penthouse where I preferred an old and remote cottage. In the end we found in this little paradise the best of both ways.

Adrian Bredero purchased this villa in 2000

Why Adrian Bredero chose Frigiliana

We bought this one of a kind house because my wife fell instantaneously in love with it. We had seen so many "not inspiring" houses that we realised that this was a once in a life time opportunity to become the owner of a piece of Spanish history. We have the intention to go and live here permanently in the future. It breezes the old Spanish atmosphere and is very luxurious without being too perfect or decadent. It's positioned in the second line from the beach. You can lay on the beach in 15 minutes and at the a same time you can immerse yourself in the peacefulness of the countryside. There is too much to be done. You can go for a walk in the mountains, go to the Sierra Nevada, visit the Alhambra, ride horse, go to the prehistoric caves of Nerja, enjoy a walk in prize winning Frigiliana.

What makes this villa unique

The most surprising advantage is the combination the tranquility of a country house on one hand and the comfort of a see side house on the other hand. This is because of the short drive the Nerja beach and having at the same time the shepherds who are passing by our house every day. The beautiful sea views in front of you and overwhelming mountain views behind you are also hard to describe. Every single room is very spacious with high ceilings and has a private see sights for you every morning to wake up. You can be in an unspoilt historic Spanish Hacienda with at the same time the all the modern facilities for summer and winter. Around the house there is so much to discover. We know the area so we can arrange almost anything. We do recommend make a guided walk with our local guide.

Absolutely delightful

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous property. Spacious, traditional with everything you could possibly need. Clean and comfortable with excellent outdoor and indoor space. We were 2 families of 4 and there was plenty of space for all of us. The view is exceptional, the pool an absolute bonus and of course not forgetting the lovely Antonio who is on hand to help whenever you need it. Will absolutely return again. Don't hesitate, just book it.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

After enjoying the adorable Andalusian highlights for two weeks, we spent one delightful, relaxing week in Cortijo Los Almendros in Frigiliana.

The house is a very original, nice, clean and attractive place, very complete, with plenty of room and personal touches everywhere. We were just the two of us and only used the left side of the house with the charming bedroom and the bathroom where also physical disabled people could stay very well. On the very nice terraces we spent many, many relaxing moments during days and nights, enjoying the gorgeous view. Also the garden and swimmingpool were very attractive.

We made some tours in the neighbourhood to Frigiliana, Nerja, the beach and also a small walkingtour. The attractive sounding walkingtours we save for, perhaps, a next time, because our feet needed some rest after all those highlights. A great place to complete this memorable journey.

awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great large house, with all equipments needed. We were with a group of 8 persons, all different ages, and really loved it. Rural setting, few nice restaurants nearby, great place to start a walk deep into mountains. Swimming pool perfect for the kids and large garden to play (watch small children). Clean property and well maintained, loved the housekeeper/ manager! Would really recommend this propery to anyone!

Restaurant we loved was at acebuchal.

One of the loveliest places ever been!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest holiday last autumn, not in the least because of the great atmosphere of Cortijo Los Almendros. Spacious house, good beds, clean, good service of the owner and their maintainer (who speaks English perfectly). The views are amazing from every point of the garden, house. And although it's a quiet area, there are a few good bars and restaurants within walking distance. We recommend this place to anyone and will be back for sure!!

Car: recommended


The famous beach of Burriana is 5 miles away. There are also more quiet beaches, like Maro's, Cantarrijan, or La Herradura. The beaches at the east side of Nerja are very quiet and charming and isolated. We will provide you with all the information in our 'Guest Guide', specially written for our clients.


37 miles from Malaga airport by a new, excellent highway. Hiring a car is strongly recommended, because of the distance from our house to the nearest bus stop.


Nerja: 7 km. Frigiliana: 3.5 km. Malaga: 63 km. Granada:100 km.

Further Details:

The house is situated on the road from Frigiliana to Torrox. Close to the house there are three good restaurants within walking distance. There are possibilities to walk, horseriding and biking. It is a 5 minutes drive to Frigiliana, a charming, old white village. There are shops and some very nice bars and restaurants. Nerja is only 15 minutes by car. It is a lively town, with shops, supermarkets and lots of nice restaurants.
