FRIGILIANA: This charming country cottage in the Axarquia is perched on a hill of olive trees overlooking the white Moorish village of Frigiliana and the Mediterranean Sea, and backed by the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Sierras. It is conveniently located 5 minutes by car (a pleasant 20 minute walk) outside Frigiliana, right off the road to Torrox, and is only a 10 to 15 minute drive to Nerja and the beaches of the Costa del Sol. A large municipal pool is available in the village. Málaga is less than an hour’s drive away, and Granada only 90 minutes. The beautiful and historical cities of Cordoba, Seville and Ronda are easily reachable. The cottage is set in a garden of fruit trees and flowers amidst the olive grove. The terrace faces east-southeast down the valley to the sea–a beautiful place to sit and watch the moon (or sun!) rise. The fully equipped kitchen and bathroom are tiled with hand-made tiles, and a large wood-burning stove in the salon is perfect for chilly winter days and nights.

Frigiliana is set on a mountainside 6 kilometers from Nerja’s beaches on the Costa del Sol. Nerja has many shops, bars and restaurants, and just on the outskirts are some famous prehistoric caves. In Frigiliana one can visit an interesting archeological museum that houses pieces from the Phoenician era found in caves and burial mounds around the village and along the Higuerón River. There are shops selling locally grown fruits and vegetables, an olive mill where one can buy oil pressed from local olives, as well as ceramics and souvenir shops and several bars and restaurants. The village has botanical gardens, children’s playgrounds and a modern gymnasium and pool. Hikers can enjoy many stunning walks into the sierras and up the river, including one long hike up to the Pass of the Ravens, which overlooks the great vega south of Granada.

The Cortijo Laurel combines a peaceful and romantic ambiance with easy access to wonderful walks in the sierras backing the property and the village of Frigiliana, as well as to the river Higuerón, the coast, Nerja, Almuñecar and other white villages in the Axarquia. The views of the sea, the mountains, the terraced fields of olives and avocados that fall towards the coast, and the clouds over Africa are breathtaking. Birds are abundant throughout the year, and wild mountain goats can sometimes be seen on the slopes above. Also, perched on the mountainside as it is, the starry night skies are a wonder to behold.                                                                                 CTC–201644490
