About Caroline Kenyon
My husband and I fell in love with Frigiliana when we first visited back in 2006. We purchased our villa from a local builder and were able to put our own ideas into some of the design features as the build was not complete. We completed the sale in 2007. We visit our house three to four times a year with family and friends. The village is a very friendly place and we eat out often and even after many visits we always find somewhere we have never eaten before.

Just right for a family holiday
The villa is in a superb position, with views down to the sea, and of mountains on either side. The layout works well, with the top floor suite for the 'most important' members of the family, and the other bedrooms on the lower floor, beneath the living room/kitchen. The swimming pool and BBQ/eating area were put to good use, and we were impressed that someone came mid-week to clean the pool and its filters.
Frigiliana is a very attractive pueblo village and is only 5 minutes walk from the villa. It has some good restaurants - Restaurante El Casino for rooftop meals and a chocolatier on the Plaza de las Tres Culturas for spiced hot chocolate.
If you like walking then go up El Fuerte as the sun is rising for really spectacular views; there are many local walks in the area but the signage and written descriptions are not very accurate or complete. Trail running is to be recommended!
Amazing villa in a lovely area.
We are just back from an awesome stay in this beautiful comfortable villa. As a party of 9 adults we had plenty of room to all socialise together but also the younger members had there own space to relax. Leaving us oldies to enjoy the large terrace. This is an excellently equipped villa in a lovely area with beautiful views. We used the pool constantly with great enjoyment and spent some time at the Plaza where we had some lovely food and cocktails. We would all love to return to this fantastic villa.
Glad you all enjoyed the villa and the surrounding areas of Frigiliana which is such a pretty village. Hope to see you back soon!
We've just come home after a fortnight stay in this lovely villa in a wonderful part of Spain. we are two families - 4 adults 4 teens - and this accommodation gave us everything we wanted... space, pool, games room, large kitchen, lots of seating space, air con, lovely balconies, and an easy walk into Frigiliana. Kate and Steve were on hand to sort linen, clean pool etc. and Caroline was very responsive via email to answer all our questions before our holiday. Thank you.
We love this corner of the Costa Del Sol and this villa gave us the ideal base. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Thanks for your great review its nice to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay and would love to return.
Fab villa in superb location
We loved the villa it is very spacious we were a family group of 9 ...3 generations. It is very well appointed beds all comfy lots of bathrooms. The downstairs area was fab for us we made bbqs and played cards down there. The pool area is great with plenty of furniture. We were there early April so didn't use the pool as was a bit too cold. Frigliana is a very beautiful town lots of character and loads of eateries to try. It's quaint streets are magical. We will definitely go back
Beautiful mountain views
The property and location are stunning but unfortunately the construction site next door with diggers and bulldozers creating noise and dust every day made it impossible to relax at the villa or enjoy the pool apart from Sunday when they were not working. I would return but not until building work is complete in the future.
Before making a reply to this review I wanted to see for myself what works were being carried out.
I went to our villa, the building works are not next door as their is another villa already next to our villa which is occupied by our neighbours.
The new villa is next door theirs.
The digging works have since been completed.
I have been assured by the builder that the messy and noisy works which were ground works are now finished.
It was most unfortunate that these works were taking place at the same time this guest was on holiday.
I had not received any notification that these works were going to take place. If I had have known I would not have rented our villa.
This guest was complimentary about our villa and its surroundings.
Fantastic villa with panoramic views
We visited this villa from 21 July to 4 August 2016. We were 2 families of 4 in each - the youngest being 9 years old. It is very spacious with 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms/toilets and so perfect for 8 of us. The property was very clean and well maintained and there were plenty of towels.There are lots of seating areas and the master bedroom on the top floor is amazing. We had a minibus for the 8 of us to all go out together in the evening for meals but this was not necessary as there are lots of very good restaurants in walking distance. It is steep up to Frigiliana but, as long as you are able to walk, it is a lovely stroll to a beautiful place with panoramic views. The view down to the sea and up to the mountains from the villa is spectacular. There is a shower and toilet by the pool and also a kitchen and barbecue. The pool is small but deep so lovely to cool off in.There is a lift in the villa as it is over 4 floors but this was not in service when we were there but we did not require it. I assume that if you requested it, it could be in service. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a washing machine outside in a utility room. There are 9 sunbeds and some umbrellas by the pool. It is a short drive down to Nerja where the beaches are lovely and there are lots of watersports such as parasailing and jetskiiing. We went to Granada for a day, went walking in the Sierra Nevada, enjoyed parasailing and also went to a waterpark but, mostly, we stayed by the pool in the villa. The only downside of the villa was the air conditioning. It was very hot in August (up to 39 degrees) and the aircon wasn't very cold unless you had the remote control of which there was only one. You couldn't put the aircon on an hour before you went to bed because it would automatically turn off but we understood that this was because previous visitors had left it on constantly for 2 weeks and it is very expensive so we appreciated the problem.. The owners provided good customer service as, when we contacted them, Steve came out to solve any problems we had and he also came to clean the pool mid-week. It is very Spanish in Nerja and Frigiliana so we enjoyed trying out our basic Spanish-speaking skills which were appreciated in the restaurants. We would definitely visit this villa again as it was superb!
