After visiting 4 years on the trot, I really should leave a review..... :) This apartment is just excellent. Ideally located for access to wonderful places in a nice wee village. We had breakfast on the north patio, and sometimes had lunch on th esouth facing one. Wonderfully relaxing place. Haven't ruled out visiting for a 5th time.....
We had a fantastic time at this house - Steve the owner could not have been more helpful.
The views from the upstairs terrace are breathtaking and the house is in a great location for exploring Frigiliana. A short walk takes you to the many bars and restaurants that the village has to offer.
It is in a very peaceful location and the house is perfect for a great holiday with some fantastic outdoor space for dining.
We hope to return again in the near future
Just arrived back from a 7 night stay at Steve's wonderful apartment.The apartment is well maintained and has views to die for from the back terrace, looking down into the valley.It's in a great location just on the edge of the old town with 2 small shops selling all you need within 1 min walk and a new bar (Fandango)run by an English couple Lexi and Chris within the same distance, give the bar a try , really good home cooked food at great prices.
Frigiliana is a beautiful village and has lots of great restaurants selling great food, my particular favourite was the Tapas at Plaza 45.
We woke up each morning to the sounds of the various animals in the valley saying good morning, my favourite was the Donkey who I'm missing already.
All in all we had a super relaxing holiday in an amazing apartment within a spectacular village. The weather was glorious as well.
We will be returning next year and are hopeful to get in Steve's apartment again.
The Casa, a 2 storey apartment is located at the top end of Frigiliana. The entrance, lounge and the twin upstairs bedroom overlook the quiet road at the back of the town which becomes the old cobbled historic main street after a few hundred yards(barely wide enough for the local residents to drive through). Parking is on the street & it's pot luck but not a problem as you can park top a hill nearby if it's occasionally full -or straddle the crossing if you dare, as some people did!
It's compact with a very well equipped kitchen, pleasant lounge with 2 opening balcony doors and balconies leading off the upstairs twin & double bedrooms. The upstairs twin bedroom has soft chairs on the balcony and is ideal for a morning coffee, the larger rear balcony off the upstairs double bedroom getting the sun most of the day with 4 sunbeds which can all be used together although a bit tight depending on the angle of the sun .Upstairs the double bedroom has a comfy bed, although the others were quite firm The downstairs twin bedroom is quite small but has the advantage of a downstairs loo.
We opted to stay in Frigiliana as we prefer somewhere more traditional and felt that this fitted the bill, rather than staying on the coast.
We ate at Fandango's (2 minutes up the road) which was good and also had a fabulous family evening meal at Taverna Del Sacristan (5 minutes walk further on the cobbled road in the old town) which we all thought was great. I can highly recommend the filet steak with mushroom sauce!
If you prefer to be away from the hustle & bustle of big town Nerja but within an easy 10-15 minute drive to see the old town and for the odd meal or beach trip then this is the place for you. Burriana Beach had good parking (busier at weekends & you may need to drive around to find a spot). We also walked into the centre from there as the short hike over the hill didn't take too long.
Top Tips -We had trouble with the wifi at first but re-booted it & it worked fine.
Book to see the Alhambra in Granada, its fantastic and if you have time walk up the
Albaicin, through the Kasbah (Moroccan shopping street) to the viewing point. The
Alhambra with the Sierra Nevadas behind is fantastic!

Casa en chorruelo is such a great apartment, fully equipped with everything you could possible need to have a great stay. Communication with Steve was always quick and simple. Frigiliana has already become one of my favourites towns in Spain. Me and my family would love to go back there some day and without any doubt Casa en chorruelo will be our first choice.
