About Thomas

We are from Sweden and this is our dream house. It's the place where we shall spend our time during the cold Swedish winters when we are retired. I spend already 3-4 months here every winter because there's a lot of maintenance to do as painting, gardening, repairing etc. It took us 20 years before we could afford to buy this land and build the house. We hope you will like the place as much as we do.

Thomas purchased this villa in 2001

Why Thomas chose Frigiliana

We want to live in the country side but still within walking distance to the village. The plot does not lean as much as many others do. So the plot is to use better and we love the view from the terrace. We like to wake up to the sounds of birds instead of the sounds from cars, neighbors etc.

What makes this villa unique

I think this is the villa, for rent, that is closest to the village. Only a 6 min walk. This is highly appreciated. Only 500m on a concrete paved road from the main road that passes through Frigiliana. The water purifier. Always drinking water from the cold tap in the kitchen. The water in Frigiliana and south of Spain contains a lot of lime, 37dHº, and therefore we have installed a water decalcifyer. It makes the water very soft so you don't have to use so much soap and detergent which is better for the enviroment. The hot water is heated by solarpanels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed in many houses in Frigiliana but I must say that Tejar de Arriba is the most amazing house I've ever seen. We got the feeling of being at home. One can see that you are doing much to keep the house in order. If there is a paradise on earth, it must be Tejar de Arriba. We will come back many times. With best regards - Fam. Hagedorf, Denmark.

A few words to say that we enjoyed our stay at the villa and to thank you for the quick response regarding the pool problems. We have stopped many times in the area and your villa was amongst the best we have stopped at. - Fam. Fair, Wakefield, England

My wife and I have just returned from staying at your villa and unfortunately we have to complain. We feel the need to complain that unfortunately we had to leave and return home. It was absolutely the most amazing place which we have holidayed in and the reality far outreaches the website. A truly amazing place!!!!!!!!! Cant wait to return one day.

Fam. Fowler, Swindon, England.

Another World

Just returned 2days ago from Tejar and as usual over the last 6 years we are missing the tranquility and sheer peace of such an idyllic holiday. Never fails to please and if you don't leave there totally horizontal then you are not human. Thanks again Thomas, and following this message you will find an email on your inbox for next year. Best Regards etc as always, Mike & Caroline Fowler. UK

Lovely villa with fantastic outside space and beautiful views. What more could you ask for ? We have stayed in villas for the last 13 years but had never been to mainland Spain. Frigiliana surpassed all of our expectations, it is a beautiful village with plenty of restaurants to choose from, Spanish with plenty of tapas, lovely Italian pizza and even English cafe with toasties - something for everyone. Tejar de Arriba is one of the nicest villas we have stayed in over the years and for all the photos are stunning, they really do not show just how much ! The pool is a fantastic size, there were 4 of us, two adults and two boys, 14 and 9 and there was loads of space for us all. We had two weeks of scorching weather so didn't venture too far, walking into Frigiliana was enough for us,in 40+ degree heat it was quite a challenge, especially when your husband thinks he's on an army route march !! We did catch the bus down to Nerja a couple of times which was easy to do as it picks up right in the middle of the village or taxi was only 12 euros. We have never re visited the same villa twice as we think there are so many places in the world but this one is going to be an exception and we are hoping to book again for next year.

We chose Tejar de Arriba based on the attractive pool and the easy walking distance to the village. We now feel like the luckiest people in the world as it far surpassed our expectations. We had a magic week in this lovely villa. We found it to be extremely comfortable and well equipped. We found Thomas to be very efficient and easy to communicate with. Most of all we loved the outside space - the beautiful gardens and fruit trees, the pool and the terraces, the views and the goats. The memory of this place and our glorious week in the sun will keep us warm this winter :-). thank you Thomas.

Lovely villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Set in a great place, just outside of frigiliana, making it easy to walk to town.

If you do have any problems Thomas answers emails very quickly.

We've been three in a row now, so that must tell you what we think of it.

Beautiful villa in outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many villas and apartments booked through HomeAway and other websites before now, but this is one of the nicest. Everything was clean and well-maintained, the gardens were lovely, the kitchen well-stocked, and the location was brilliant, too - a fairly easy walk into Frigiliana for dinner and a few drinks, and then the bonus of walking home along the track with great moonlit views of this beautiful white village tumbling down the mountain side. Would particularly recommend the restaurant Al Fuente which has fabulous tapas for vegetarians. It's also an easy drive to the coastal resort of Nerja (15-20 mins) where there are many other restaurants and bars - the Jaipur Indian restaurant was a favourite of ours! The temperature heated up to around 28 degrees on our last few days, so the breeze around the pool was particularly welcome! Thomas is very kind and helpful, and we would love to return one day.
