Description (written by the owner)

Beautiful restored detached cortijo, with magnificent sea & mountain views and private pool. Sleeps up to 10. Situated in Natural Park en still close to beaches and lively towns.

Very charming and spacious 250 year old rustic farmstead, situated in quiet area with splendid sea view and mountaing views. It was fully restored 6 years ago and has very good access. 1,5 mile up the road from the lovely old Arabic white village of Frigiliana and 2 miles from the lively town of Nerja with its beautiful Burriana Beach. The house has 4 bedrooms. You can split the biggest bedroom into two bedrooms. It has a swimming pool (4,50 x 8,20), 3 terraces and a lovely big (3000sqm) garden with tropical trees. The house has good access and offers lots of privacy. Situated in the Natural Park Sierra de Almijara y Tejeda, you can walk, bike etc in the near environment. There are several restaurants in walking distance. Since the former owner was disabled, the house is 90% wheelchair friendly. The total house has central heating and therefore is also very comfortable during winter time!

It breezes the old Spanish atmosphere and is very luxurious without being too perfect or decadent. It's positioned in the second line from the beach. You can lay on the beach in 15 minutes and at the a same time you can immerse yourself in the peacefulness of the countryside. There is too much to be done. You can go for a walk in the mountains, go to the Sierra Nevada, visit the Alhambra, ride horse, go to the prehistoric caves of Nerja, enjoy a walk in prize winning Frigiliana.

Unique benefits of the property:

The most surprising advantage is the combination the tranquility of a country house on one hand and the comfort of a see side house on the other hand. This is because of the short drive Nerja naer the beach and having at the same time the shepherds who are passing by our house every day. The beautiful sea views in front of you and overwhelming mountain views behind you are also hard to describe. Every single room is very spacious with high ceilings and has a private see sights for you every morning to wake up. You are in an unspoilt historic Spanish Hacienda which also has all the modern equipments for summer and winter. In an around the house there is so much to discover. We know the area so we can arrange almost anything. We do recommend e.g. to make a guided walk with our local guide.

This year (2015), our villa received a Zoover Award (independent traveler website) for getting so many excellent reviews!

Rustic charm and fantastic setting!

What a place! Our two families (5 and 4) both thoroughly our stay in this amazing spot. We loved everything from the swimmingpool to the kitchen and of course the view. Right through our stay everything was sorted out when and if needed and the communication with Adriaan was impeccable. We will be back! -Mikkel Simonsen

An excellent holiday

We spent a very happy holiday in this attractive old farmhouse which is full of character. We were eight adults, four of us in our seventies and very glad of the steps and handrail into the lovely pool , and the fact that the property is all on level ground. The views are wonderful, and there was plenty for our young people to do, walking in the nearby mountains and visiting the beaches nearby. There are some very good restaurants in easy reach of Los Almendros. We also enjoyed the herd of goats with their bells on which pass the house often. I can certainly recommend Los Almendros as an excellent place for a holiday.

Delightful stay

After enjoying the adorable Andalusian highlights for two weeks, we spent one delightful, relaxing week in Cortijo Los Almendros in Frigiliana. The house is a very original, nice, clean and attractive place, very complete, with plenty of room and personal touches everywhere. We were just the two of us and only used the left side of the house with the charming bedroom and the bathroom where also physical disabled people could stay very well. On the very nice terraces we spent many, many relaxing moments during days and nights, enjoying the gorgeous view. Also the garden and swimmingpool were very attractive. We made some tours in the neighbourhood to Frigiliana, Nerja, the beach and also a small walkingtour. The attractive sounding walkingtours we save for, perhaps, a next time, because our feet needed some rest after all those highlights. A great place to complete this memorable journey.

A wonderful place for a perfect holiday!

We had such a nice stay in this perfect holiday house. The view is amazing, so we were enjoying this during breakfast, lunch and diner (mostly BBQ!). The house itself has all comfort and luxury you need; good kitchen, great beds, large swimming pool and a lovely grape pergola (shade!!). We have small children so had to stay at home a lot but we enjoyed it very much. There are a few nice restaurants nearby, you can make a walk and the sea is just 15 minutes away. We will recommend Los Almendros and the great area of Frigiliana and Nerja to anyone! Fam. Beertje.

Mr.

During our 2-week stay in June-July 2011 we were three generations, aged 3 to 63. At our maximum we comprised 10 persons with 3 rental cars parked in the courtyard for about a week, and the house was comfortable even then. We enjoyed cooking big meals in the kitchen and eating at the table outdoors. My wife was entranced with the atmosphere of the house. We really appreciated the fine view from the house and of course the pool was used a lot, especially by my young granddaughters. A special surprise was the huge herd of goats that passed quietly by on the dark road every evening around 10. After returning home to Oslo we booked a period for the following summer. The caretaker Antonio is a very fluent English speaker and diligantly attended to the maintenance.

Autumn holidays

2 families from Trondheim, Norway, with children from 10 to 17 years spent our autumn holidays at Los Almendros. We have rented vacation houses near the Mediterranean every autumn holidays for many years, and this is the best one so far. We will be back...
