All our propertes are very well equipped for self-catering.
All have a full-size oven, four-plate ceramic hob, full-height
fridge-freezer, extractor, microwave, toaster, electric kettle,
traditional teapot, cafetiere, plus complete sets of saucepans
and frying pans. In addition, there are casserole dishes, various
mixing and serving bowls, plus a wide variety of utensils. All
have ample crockery, cutlery and glasses, which saves having
to ensure the washing up is done before the next meal or snack.
The villas have brick built bar-b-q's on their terraces, unfortunately
'Community' rules prohibit charcoal bar-b-q's at the apartment.
All have dishwashers and washing machines.
If you need anything (within reason) for cooking purposes, just
ask our Agents, who will endeavour to purchase the item, at
no cost to yourselves, providing it remains on our inventory
when you depart. To get you started, we include in the rental
a small 'welcome pack' of bread, butter (or similar), milk,
fruit juice, bottled water, wine, beer and toilet rolls. Additional
items can be supplied by special request. Previous guests have
often left tea, coffee, sugar, spices, herbs and other condiments.
Our properties are thoroughly cleaned between bookings and we
have an emergency maintenance man on-call, in the event of any
Supermarkets: There is a small supermarket down on
Burriana Beach.. It manages to stock a wide selection of items
within its limited space. However it is
more expensive than Mercadona and Carrefour, both of which are
located on the main road at the top of the hill, near the Nerja
Club Hotel. Mercadona is especially convenient for those in
Villa Mimosa and our apartment. In the town centre, there is
another Carrefour plus another Mercadona, both with
free parking. There is also a Lidl, situated on the road
between Nerja and the motorway. The family-run Iranzo supermarket,
on the main road roundabout leading down the hill to the Parador
hotel, stocks a wide variety of British products, plus a big
selection of wines and spirits, often the best prices in town.
Tuesday market, located north of the main road
in the Almijara area, is much diminished, but still worth
a visit. There is also a Sunday second-hand 'flea' market in
the same location. The best market is the large
Saturday market along the main road at Caleta
de Velez (with convenient parking for a charity donation cost
of €1). Other market
days within a half-hour drive, are in Torrox-Costa
(Monday), Algarrobo-Costa (Wednesday), Torre del Mar
(Thursday), Frigiliana (Thursday) and Almunecar (Friday).
Hypermarket: About 20 minutes from Nerja, at
Velez-Malaga, there is a huge Eroski hypermarket, well signposted
from the A7 motorway, where you can do a 'shop' for the whole
week, en-route from Malaga Airport. It has everything and it
is cheap, with plenty of free parking. Their
petrol station offers the cheapest fuel between Malaga and anywhere
around Nerja, with a further discount for self-service card
payment at the pump. The Mall, open until 10pm six
days a week (closed Sundays), contains numerous other
shops, including Dunnes (the Irish Marks and Spencer), plus
Worten, a big electrical superstore.
The Aqua Velis water park, the closest one to Nerja, is almost
