Location

Los Cipreses is located between the coastal town of Nerja and the beautiful white village of Frigiliana.  It is just 2.6 km to Nerja town, 3.5km to the beaches, and 1.3km to Frigiliana village.

 

The villa is situated just an easy 2 minute drive off the main A-7 Autovia de Mediterraneo  on the Costa Del Sol, 45km east of Malaga. It takes about 50 minutes to drive from Malaga airport. There is a very good bus service between Malaga and Nerja and also between Frigiliana and Nerja.

 

Frigiliana

 

The town of Frigiliana is just a couple of kilometers from Los Cipreses and is a delightful blend of picturesque cobbled streets, pretty white houses, bars and restaurants.  It is one of the best preserved Moorish villages in Andalucia, its history encompasses the Phoenicicans, Romans and Arabs. It is so easy to while away the day in Frigiliana, wander the winding streets, stop for coffee and cakes, or tapas, visit the market or walk down into the massive gorge that marks the edge of the National Park.

There are frequent fiestas in Frigiliana, the biggest being the festival of Las 3 Culturas in August, celebrating its history with music, street theatre, stalls and a must-do tapas route.

 

 

Nerja

 

Once a sleepy fishing village Nerja is now a bustling coastal town but it retains its charm with delightful beaches, the impressive 'Balcon' and winding streets with whitewashed houses and shops. Burriana beach is the most famous Nerja beach, with cafes and restaurants, beach activities and watersports, but there are also sandy coves to explore. Nerja town is about 2.6km from Los Cipreses, the beach is 3.6km.  If you are looking for something even quieter, just outside Nerja there are small coves to discover along the coastal road.

 

Nerja Caves

 

Just outside Nerja on the road to Maro, Nerja caves are a fascinating and unexpectedly stunning outing. The caves house the worlds largest column and contain Neanderthal images which are 42,000 years old. It is hard to describe how incredible the caverns are, with stalactites and stalagmites creating a cathedral-like space beneath the ground.
