Holiday Homes for rent in the popular Costa del Sol resort of
A very popular resort, readily accessible from Malaga and its
international airport, with motorway access to within a mile
of the town centre. Nestling on the foothills of the mountains,
the old town, with its narrow vehicle restricted cobbled streets,
offers a more relaxed holiday from that found in the more fashionable
resorts of the Costa del Sol. The beach front has a large choice
of shops, bars and restaurants, including the locally well known
With other small picturesque beaches, the famous 'Balcon de
Europa' promenade, numerous shops, bars and restaurants,
plus its wonderful all year round climate, Nerja has something
for everyone, especially families and the more mature holidaymaker.
However, as there are some fairly steep footpaths and roads,
it may not be suitable for those with walking or breathing difficulties.
It is an all-year resort, with only the commercial centre and
major supermarkets closing
holidays. We have a big selection of pictures in the Nerja
gallery, plus eight slideshows and
a location map showing our properties.

Excursions & Activities:
Caves, Spain's third biggest tourist attraction, are well
worth a visit. Discovered in 1969, an extensive network of fascinating
underground caverns with the World's biggest stalactites, plus
an auditorium and stage often used for music concerts and arts
festivals. Nearby is Maro,
a picturesque village with panoramic views across the sea and
a small secluded beach, invisible from the cliff-top. For more
local excursions, the mountains shelter many small attractive
villages, notably Frigiliana
with its restored Moorish town, Competa,
the 'Pearl of the Axarquia', the restored 'lost' hamlet of Acebuchal
originally abandoned in 1948 and the cliff-top village of Comares.
Within easy driving distance is the historic city of Granada
with the famous Alhambra
Palace (pre-booking necessary), plus the spectacular ski
area of Sierra Nevada.
Beyond Granada is the ancient city of Jaén
and on the way to Granada is the old town of Salobrena,
built on a steep hillside leading up to a 10th Century Moorish
castle. Along the coast in the opposite directions are Malaga
and the Picasso
Museum, plus Marbella
Banus, all providing an entertaining day out, as do visits
and the El
Torcal National Park. Andalucia is also home to the cities
as well as the beautiful town of Ronda.
The nearest golf course is Baviera,
about 20 minutes away near Velez Malaga. The nearest water park,
the largest in the Malaga area, is Aqua
Velis, also at Velez Malaga, almost opposite the 'Eroski'
hypermarket. For a more action-packed holiday, the Nerja
Dive Centre, along Burriana Beach, offers a wide choice
of watersports activities. 'La Raqueta' tennis club is also
within a ten minute walk of Burriana, three hard courts available
by the hour, with all shower and changing facilities, plus snack
bar and restaurant. For bicycle hire and cycling tours, the
is on the roundabout, opposite the 'Iranzo' supermarket.
Car Hire: The major
international companies all have their offices inside the arrivals
hall. Although we accept no responsibility for our suggestion,
we use the local, Tony's
Rent a Car whose reps meet you just outside the arrivals
hall. The company does not use the controversial system of upfront
payment for a full tank of top-price fuel. Nearly all companies
have websites with on-line booking in English, or use comparison
sites who will search for the best deals. From the exit of Malaga
Airport there is a high-level dual carriageway link to the
A7 motorway, which then passes within a mile of Nerja town centre.
Malaga is about 34 miles (55 km.) from Nerja, the airport is
6 miles (10km.) further on, taking about 50 minutes to drive.
If you just want daily hire, to perhaps visit one of the local
our agent in the resort will be able to advise, or browse the
small ads at the back of the magazines in our properties.
