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 hand wash or dish wash 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
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 sometimes
leave tea, coffee, sugar, spices, herbs and other condiments.
Our properties are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised between
bookings and our agents are on-call during the hours of 9am
to 8pm, in the event of any problems.
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 large Lidl on the road
between Nerja and the motorway. The family-run Iranzo supermarket,
with convenient parking by 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 since the pandemic,
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 coast road at
Caleta de Velez (with convenient
parking for a charity donation cost of €1).
Other market days 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, 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 equivilent of Marks and Spencer.
The Aqua Velis water
park, the closest one to Nerja, is almost opposite.
