A charming traditional townhouse, located in a pretty courtyard in the centre of the old quarter of Frigiliana.
The property is organised over 3 floors, and as well as the beautiful courtyard, it benefits from its own private terrace with coastal and mountain views. The house has been tastefully decorated throughout and has a lovely warm and welcoming feel.
Upon entering the property is a large open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, with double patio doors opening onto the outside courtyard area. The kitchen has been recently refurbished and is in keeping with the tradition of the house yet offering all modern conveniences. The lounge also benefits from a small storeroom located under the stairs.
The traditional wooden staircase leads to the first floor where both bedrooms are located, each of which have built in wardrobes. The master bedroom has a wonderful Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard below and a large en-suite bathroom which has been recently re-decorated to include a modern large walk in shower.
Stairs to the top floor lead to the second lounge offered with this property, this is a lovely light and bright room with access directly out to the private terrace with breath taking views. It is on this floor that the second (smaller) bathroom is located with shower. The second lounge could also very easily serve as an additional en-suite bedroom if preferred, making an overall total of 3 bedrooms in the property.
The large flower filled courtyard is shielded from noise by its high walls, thus creating a real tropical oasis all centralised around a large lemon tree. The courtyard is not open to the public and instead is joint owned by the 4 houses located within it. This lovely house, plus the 3 additional homes, all have shared use and responsibility of the courtyard and maintain this area to a very high standard, with each property occupying the part of the courtyard located immediately outside their property, perfect for al-fresco dining and relaxing all year round.
A very unique property that must be viewed to be fully appreciated!
Frigiliana is located just 6 kilometres inland north of Nerja and lies at an altitude of 435 metres. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara mountain range, Frigiliana is an extremely pretty village which has received several awards for conservation and beauty. It enjoys spectacular countryside as well as wonderful sea views and good access to the coast. The population is around 3,000.
The village is a tangle of narrow cobbled streets lined by whitewashed houses, their wrought-iron balconies filled with planters of brilliant red geraniums. Small plazas provide shady seating while the village bars are popular with visitors who come here to taste the locally produced wine. There are also several excellent shops selling pottery and ceramics, including decorative plates with their distinctive Arab design. Frigiliana is best explored by foot.
Due to its unrivalled charm Frigiliana attracts a vast number of tourists during the summer months. Sunny summer days can be spent enjoying a light refreshment in one of its numerous bars and cafes, taking in the sights of some of its enduring processions and fiestas or exploring the area by taking a walk through olive groves, avocado plantations and lines of almond trees.
The River Higuerón irrigates the area which produces sub-tropical fruits and vegetables. The drier slopes grow olives and grapes used to make excellent sweet dry wines.
Steeped in great history this beautiful White village is a haven of tranquillity and tradition that is truly appreciated by the locals making it the most honoured town within the Axarquia province. In the 1980´s the town was awarded by the tourist department of Spain 1st prize for the most beautiful place in Spain. An early contribution to this was the law introduced by the incumbent mayor in 1971; he declared that everyone in Frigiliana must whitewash their houses once a year and this is a law that is still enforced today.
