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.
This is especially useful in the apartment, where we did not
have room to install a dishwasher, which we do have in the villas.
The villas have brick built bar-b-q's on their terraces, unfortunately
'Community' rules prohibit charcoal bar-b-q's at the apartment.
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, open seven days a week, until midnight in the
summer. It manages to stock a wide selection of items within
its limited space. However it is more
expensive than Mercadona and Supersol, 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
Supersol plus another Mercadona, both with free
parking. There is also a Lidl, situated on the road between
Nerja and the motorway. The 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 a useful place to buy all sorts
of items, which may be cheaper than the UK. There is also a
Sunday second-hand 'flea' market in the same location. Other
market days within a half-hour
drive, are in Torrox-Costa
(Monday), Algarrobo-Costa (Wednesday), Torre del Mar
(Thursday), Frigiliana (Thursday), Almunecar (Friday), and Caleta
de Velez (Saturday - with the most convenient parking at a charity
donation cost of €1).
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
