Villa in El Capistrano, Nerja, Costa del Sol, Spain - Near Nerja And Beach, Private Garden And Sea-view Terraces
About Kiloran German
We are Canadians who have moved from the heritage home we restored in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lunenburg to the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia. We have been escaping the Canadian winters for the past eight years, staying in El Capistrano in Nerja. After renting different properties, it was a wonderful opportunity to buy this Villa, which we named Casa Nova. As we live in Canada from the spring until the early winter, we are happy to make Casa Nova available to others who are visiting this beautiful part of the Costa del Sol. Fortunately, we have the assistance of the team at Nerja Villas Capistrano, a well established local agency, who take care of Casa Nova -- and our guests -- on our behalf. All the best, Kiloran German and Elizabeth Fowler.
Kiloran German purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Kiloran German chose Nerja
We love El Capistrano because it is perfectly located -- by the mountains, the sea, and the town of Nerja, which is an easy drive from Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, Malaga and all the other fabulous places of Andalucia. We first visited El Capistrano over 25 years ago, and were struck then by the beauty of the design of the urbanization and the gardens and pool areas, which are exceptional. We love to play tennis (and the courts are a stone's throw away), go for hikes, enjoy the tapas bars and beaches of Nerja, and explore the towns and villages nearby.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Nova is in the heart of El Capistrano Village -- near the shop and pools, parking and tennis. We love the views from the terraces and the privacy of our garden. The living and dining rooms are spacious and airy, and we enjoy two ensuite bathrooms, a dishwasher and main floor washing machine and WC, central heating in the winter and air conditioning for the summer. We have taken great pleasure in upgrading and adding amenities that we ourselves sought when we rented other properties -- new bathrooms, new furnishings, an expanded main terrace and master bedroom, new windows (including stained glass) with screens, new floor tiles, art work, a new sitting area in the garden and, with the installation of a new kitchen in 2014, the transformation of Casa Nova is complete!

Excellent villa and great location
The villa is really first class with everything required, there is a mini market a short walk away with a supermarket at the bottom of the road with local restaurants close by.
We had a very enjoyable holiday here and would not hesitate to recommend to others.
Casa Nova is a lovely property with wonderful sea views from the balconies.
I have stayed here in the past and can see that the owners have made a lot of improvements to the villa. As it is their second home for half of the year they have made it very comfortable. However I have to mention a few things that need attention, I know Kiloran won’t mind. As a vegetarian/vegan I tend to cook my own meals and maybe just go out for a drink. However the 2 frying pans were burnt and corroded and not really fit for purpose. The chopping knives were blunt and the knife sharpener had seen better days, maybe a steel could be purchased. There weren’t any containers for microwaving food or for storing left over food. The garlic press was broken although there was a small plastic garlic grater. At the risk of not being allowed to return I have to say that the small under counter fridge is inadequate for 2 people, so I’m not sure how a family of 4 would manage. An idea would be to have a separate small freezer in the under stairs cupboard, next to the washing machine, and then just have a fridge, without the ice box, under the kitchen counter. The new large flat screen TV is great but I missed the DVD player. (I brought a few out with me). Overall it is a very clean, comfortable property on a great development. The management team were very helpful. Sally B
Always great to get feedback -- and of course you are always welcome back! We really appreciate hearing about the things that have gone missing or need replacing etc., as this is late in the season and so there is always some wear and tear and we like to make sure things are addressed as soon as possible. For most things, we have replacements readily available or the management team will line them up quickly if reported at the time. So hope our guests never feel reluctant to point out any deficiencies -- that's what helps us meet and exceed expectations! Our goal is to ensure that our guests have everything they need for a wonderful stay.
The perfect villa
We could not have asked for a more perfect villa. It was very comfortable and well equipped. The views from the balconies were breathtaking. The location was ideal with a beautiful pool onsite, a range of supermarkets and within walking distance to the beach and Nerja town. The host was very helpful as was the reception in El Capistrano Village. We look forward to returning.
We were very pleased that you returned to Casa Nova -- four years since your previous visit. And we look forward to welcoming you back -- and will continue to work to enhance Casa Nova, so that we can continue to meet and exceed expectations. We really appreciate the positive feedback, and particularly the acknowledgement of the wonderful service provided to our guests by the team at Nerja Villas Capistrano, who welcome guests on our behalf in El Capistrano Village when we are back in Canada.
As always, a wonderful time at Casa Nova in El Capistrano Village
We spend every winter at our villa, Casa Nova -- enjoying the sunshine and the views of the sea and the mountains, playing tennis, savouring the tapas in Nerja, walking in the nearby mountains, visiting Malaga frequently and travelling to other fabulous places in Spain. And every year we make further improvements. This year, we retiled and expanded the patio and court yard garden and installed fibre optic cable and a new Smart TV. Our ongoing goal is to ensure our wonderful winter home is a home away from home for all our guests.
An excellent villa. Great location, lovely villa and everything you could possibly need. In fact we couldn't think of anything that was missing. Expect to be back soon.
Comfortable Casa w/ great seaview from 2 terraces
Wonderfully located Casa in beautiful El Capistrano Village where you can walk to and from everything within 25 minutes or less. We are walkers and truly enjoyed the walks to Burriana Beach and Nerja's Balcon of Europa. Nerja is a little jewell of a town with lots to see and do. You can easily drive to all Andalucia's sights from Casa Nova as well. The house has two fabulous terraces with great views of the Mediterranean and stunning sunsets. There is everything you may need in the kitchen for a quick meal and a well stocked grocery store right in the village within 2 minutes walk. We highly recommend Casa Nova for your "sunny everyday" Spain holiday!
