Three Holiday Homes for rent in the popular Costa del Sol resort of Nerja

Nerja: 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 Ayo's. 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 for national holidays. We have a big selection of pictures in the Nerja gallery, plus eight slideshows and a location map showing our properties. There is more about Nerja on the Andalucia regional site, the town's own site, the local English language monthly web magazine Soltalk or news and information site Nerja Today.

Excursions & Activities: The Nerja 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 and Puerto Banus, all providing an entertaining day out, as do visits to Mijas, Antequera, Ojen and the El Torcal National Park. Andalucia is also home to the cities of Cordoba and Sevilla 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  X-Bike shop 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 markets, our agent in the resort will be able to advise, or browse the small ads at the back of the magazines in our properties.

 

Taxis: As a service only for guests renting our properties, our Agent in Nerja can book a taxi or a minibus (most vehicles with air conditioning), to and from Malaga Airport, whereby the driver meets you just outside the new arrivals hall. The approximate one-way cost is €70 for a taxi up to 4 people, €100 for a minibus up to 8 or €130 for up to 12. All fares are set by the local authority and payable to the driver in cash (€), however there is no charge for making the reservation. We can also organise guest transport from Malaga Railway Station, same cost as from the airport. Once in the Nerja area, a local taxi journey will cost €5 - €10, plus €1 after 10pm and weekends.

Buses: The service between Nerja and Malaga Bus Station (adjacent to the railway station), is approximately every hour, with a half hour service from the bus station to the airport. There is no direct link from Nerja to the airport, though any inconvenience changing buses is offset by the economical cost of the two-hour journey. Nerja does not have a bus station, the buses start and terminate at the lay-by and taxi rank, adjacent to one of the roundabouts in the centre of town.

Driving:
Brittany Ferries have crossings from both Portsmouth and Plymouth to Santander, then the drive down from Northern Spain is about 630 miles. To plan your route, we suggest you look at the Mapquest site. Just type in your own U.K. postcode, the postcode of Nerja (29780) and receive a door-to-door route map.
