Perched atop a hill just outside the quaint village of Frigiliana, this beautiful three bedroom villa is worlds away from the summer crowds further down on the coastline. Frigiliana has been voted the prettiest village in Malaga, and with its white-washed Moorish houses, winding streets and flower-filled patios it is easy to see why. The surrounding countryside is lush and green, acres of avocado orchards and olive trees sloping all the way down to the Mediterranean Sea. Although only 7km by road from the popular holiday town of Nerja, Frigiliana is quiet and peaceful, and has managed to hold onto its tranquil beauty whilst still providing visitors with everything they may need in the way of restaurants, services and shops. A blend of Muslim and Christian architecture, the village is brimming with historic buildings and sites, allowing visitors to really immerse themselves in remnants of Spain's eventful past. Spacious and stylish, and tastefully decorated throughout by the owner in a discrete and classical Spanish style, the house itself is a real home away from home. Sloped ceilings, an open fireplace and wooden French windows are just some of the many personal design touches that go towards giving the house its strong sense of traditional style and warm atmosphere. The living and dining room are both elegant and bright, high ceilings and tiled floors offering respite during the hottest part of the day. The spacious kitchen has been decorated in a typically Spanish style, with tiled surfaces and dark wooden units, and comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. Each of the bedrooms has been individually decorated with care and attention. The master bedroom is particularly impressive, with a king-sized bed, wooden beams on the ceiling, and a fully tiled en-suite bathroom with bath. The second and third bedrooms both have twin beds and share a second bathroom with large walk-in shower. Each of the bedrooms has ample wardrobe space, and gives wonderful views out over the surrounding countryside. The outdoor space is just as beautiful as the interior. The ground floor terrace is home to the modern swimming pool and patio, garden and sitting area, and plenty of greenery keeps the area fresh and cool in the summer heat. The first floor terrace has a dining table and barbeque, perfect for enjoying al-fresco meals or after-dinner drinks. The house is ideally situated atop a hill, giving wonderful panoramic views to the surrounding countryside and the sea beyond. With its elegant and classic interior, tranquil location and stunning views, this is a wonderful option for those looking to get away from it all and experience a more traditional way of life in the Spanish countryside.

This home is located near the beautiful white village of Frigiliana. Views of the hills, the village, and of course, the sea. Every attention to detail is covered in this house. Our family of 6 felt very comfortable with all of the amenities. Sebastian and Loli are very gracious hosts and make every effort to make you feel welcome. Adding to the charm is the drive to get to this house. It's a 10 minute drive along a hillside, a couple interesting turns and you arrive. But it's worth it!
A short 20 minute drive and you are at Nerja for all the sand and sun you could want.

The house was everything we expected. Very clean and properly appointed. We were welcomed with a couple of bottles of Spanish wine which was nice after our long trip. All of the amenities we needed as well as a really nice wood fired Barbacoa outside which made for great meals.

We had a great time at El Mirador and highly recommend this place for couples, families and groups. The town of Frigiliana is pictiresque all-white mountain village with a few excellent restaurants. The villa is beautifully decorated and has a really luxurious feel. The landscaping and the view is fantastic, and the owners are welcoming, responsive and determined to make your stay the best vacation ever.

El Mirador is an immaculate luxury house with incredible views. Spain Select were excellent and we met the owners of the property who showed us to it. They could not do enough to make us feel at home and had left a lovely welcome food pack with a taste of the local wine. The house has everything we wanted including a pool, outdoor cooking and eating areas, and wifi. The quality of the property has to be experienced to be believed and its apparent that a lot of thought has gone into the design - from the lighting to the decor. The only slight downside was the 3km single track road to access it but we got used to this after a few outings. The location is great - nice and private at the house but a short drive from Frigiliana and Nerja. All in all we had an enjoyable and memorable holiday in El Mirador and would not hesitate to recommend it.
