About the property

Villa at Nerja

Sleeping between 4 and 8 people, this pretty white painted villa has its own terraces and enclosed private lawn garden with shrubs and fruit trees. The garden is ideal for babies and small kids who need some area shaded by the olive tree to play in, or for adults who merely want to read and snooze in the quiet. With the mountains behind and views to the sea at nearby Nerja, this is an idyllic spot.

The villa is ideal for larger groups, or for 2 families, who want to be together. The 2 apartments allow you to be together when you want to be, or separate when you need to be. Or each apartment can be rented by couples or families for an intimate, relaxing holiday.

The villa is set in the small multi-national community of San Juan de Capistrano. This is a perfect location - 2 mins walk from the superb pool complex which is surrounded by lawns and cafes, bars and a shop - near enough to get to easily but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. To view a 360-degree video of the property, scroll to the end of Facilities, and select the Owner's Website button.

How can I choose between the 2 Apartments? Both have similar accommodation: one twin and one double bedroom, a living/dining area and a fully fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, etc. Both apartments have free Wifi.

The differences are:

The upper apartment has a large patio with a spiral staircase leading to a roof terrace. Inside, it has a completely newly-installed kitchen with electric cooker and washing machine, and a newly-installed bathroom with a shower (but no bath).

The lower has a smaller terrace, but it does lead to a little private garden with grass and shady-trees. In the garden annex there is a washing machine. The kitchen has a newly-fitted halogen hob and a newly-installed oven, plus it has a combination microwave. The bathroom has a bath and an overhead shower.

The apartments each have 3 large floor-standing fans for the summer, and 3 oil-filled electric heaters for the winter.

The villa is ideal for large families or groups of friends, or for 2 families who want to holiday together!

Beach and Pool Complex.: Nerja has about 16km of beaches, all of which are easily accessible. The nearest beach, and in our opinion the best, is Burriana, about 2 kms from the villa. The 800-metre beach is a mixture of fine sand and pebbles and has all the facilities you could wish for. There are numerous beach bars and seafront cafes here. There's a full range of water sports including scuba diving and boat cruises along the coast.

There is a bus service from near the villa into town. The timetables are seasonal, and you can use these to get you near to the beaches. There is ample car parking at all the beaches.

The beaches, and the communal pool on the site, have umbrellas and sunbeds for hire. Our apartment has sunbeds, and sun umbrellas which you are welcome to use at the pool or beach.

The pool complex has lifeguards on duty during open hours. The beaches also are guarded during the height of the season.

Local Restaurants and Shopping: There are loads of restaurants in the town, a huge variety of British run and international, and also local Spanish. On the urbanization, there are 6 bar/restaurants, and bars/cafes around the pool that serve food and drinks.

The local shopping is easily accessible. Next to the pool complex on site is a 'sells- everything' supermarket. Then at the exit off the main road to the site is a very large supermarket selling a vast range of British produce. Then, of course, Nerja has several comprehensive Spanish supermarkets.

Pleas note, that during the high season, mid July/August we only hire out both apartments together

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at San Juan de Capistrano many times now in different apartments all with slightly different views of the town and sea but we feel that this apartment was the best we have been to for both location and views. It is very close to the pool area and the shop and restaurants and is yet in a very peaceful location. The apartment had everything you could need for a holiday and roof terrace had the best views we have ever seen. a real home from home. The week that we stayed was Feria week and I would really recommend it as there was lots to see and do. We will be back soon.

Are you a large group of friends, or 2 families holidaying together? Do you want to be close, but think you might occasionally need a bit of privacy? This villa is ideal for you - together when you want to be, apart when you need to be! The villa has its own private terraces with sun furniture and BBQs. The lower apartment has a garden and a patio. The upper apartment has both a large patio and a roof terrace, with spectacular all-round views. These are fantastic terraces to gather in the evenings after a long day, to enjoy a beer, wine or cava (or several!) as you watch the sun go down, highlighted by the spectacular sunsets. All day, and until 10pm in the summer, you have exclusive use of the extensive, fully supervised, adult and children's communal pools, which are open from Easter to end-October. The whole area is patrolled by security guards and is quiet and peaceful, away from the bustle of the town; yet Nerja and its beaches are within easy reach by foot or a short bus ride

Fab summer holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday at 10a Via Real in San Juan de Capistrano. Lovely property that is well equipped and located near to pool and restaurants in the urbanisation. There are several terraces within the property and fantastic views of the town. This property worked well for two families holidaying together. Nerja has super beaches, shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend a car though as it's a long walk to the town/beach and taxis/buses are rather sporadic

Lovely location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, lovely surrounding facilities. Nice layout but was quiet dusty and hadn't been sufficiently cleaned (swept). In general the fixtures and fittings are a bit tired and the outside sunbeds and cushions are not really useable as they are old and stained.

Owner's Response: Everyone enjoys staying in Nerja; it is a lovely spot. Regarding the dust, we are near to the sea and also to dry arid fields; sand blows in no matter how recently the floors are swept. We have a rolling programme of maintenance and upgrade. We visit twice a year to do this, aiming not so much for chintzy and sophisticated, more resilient, comfy and relaxing. So, much of the furniture has been recently renewed, more is planned for October. As for the outside cushions, we always replace them in October, but they do get continual heavy use during the busy spring and summer months.

Nerja nestles in the foothills of the Almijara range (excellent walking). The town is pretty and has avoided the Torremolinos-type tower blocks. It has narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces. At its heart is the Balcón de Europa, a magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff overlooking some 16 kms of sandy beaches and small secluded coves. There are panoramic views of the Mediterranean against an awesome backdrop of hazy blue mountains.

Nerja's most spectacular attraction is its fascinating caves, located just 1 km from our villa. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 yrs old and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during the summer.

Finally, for those who want to enjoy Nerja's many nightclubs and bars into the early hours, then the Tutti Frutti area in the centre of town is perfect for you.

Other Activities: World famous caves, go-karting, scuba courses. 90minutes Granada, Alhambra, skiing,etc.
