Guest Reviews

We’ve been renting this apartment in Frigiliana to guests from all over the world. We love it and are very happy to share the accommodation and village.

Here is a selection of just some our recent guest testimonials.


This is a great appartment in a great village. We walked out the door each morning and treked for 3 to 4 hours. Arrived back in town to catch a late lunch and then lounged around the pool area until it got dark (early Jan 2018). Plenty of local walks on the village website and in the booklet in the appartment. It is spotless with a spacious kitchen/ dining area, a double bedroom and a single bedroom, bathroom with a good shower (great after a days walking). We had our breakfast outside on the small balcony, it was lovely. The complex was quiet and the neighbours were friendly. Plenty of places to dine and drink in the village, small local shops within walking distance. Its a steep village with steps etc to get around so one needs to be mobile. Id recommend here to everyone.

La Fuente Vieja is in the beautiful traditional town of Frigiliana up in the hills with the sea in sight. It is one of the most picturesque places I have been to. The apartment is situated at the end of the town in a quiet area. The simple apartment was perfectly adequate for our stay and was comfortable and clean. We spent time relaxing on the small balcony which over looked the beautiful white buildings of the the old and new town and at night time it had a fairy tale feel to it with alluminated buildings. We also enjoyed the roof terrace and pool which again gave us marvellous unspoilt views. There are lots of lovely restaurants and we ate out on a few occasions. The artisan shops sold local art and crafts and there were the usual gift shops and little mini food shops. We would love to go again in the future.

I stayed at Damian and Amelia’s apartment for a month. It’s in a fantastic location right one the edge of the Old Town. A few steps to the nearest bar and supermarket. The apartment has everything you need and more for a fuss free stay. TV with English Chanels, music system, washing machine, hob, grill with hot plate and more. The pool is a lovely area with the most wonderful views of the countryside right down to the sea. I sat out on the terrace area in the evening. There is a ‘sail’ up on the terrace so even on the hottest days you can still sit out in the shade and relax. I would recommend the apartment without hesitation. Damian and Amelia are great hosts and ensure that you are happy and have what you need before, during and after your stay. Thank you both for a memorable and enjoyable holiday.

Absolutely wonderful – great spot in Frigiliana. We spent a fortnight here in July/August 2017. Damian met us as we arrived and made us feel extremely comfortable. The apartment was very clean, ideal and comfortable for a family of 4. The pools are small, but you often have them to yourselves. Frigiliana is excellent for eating out and the views are magnificent from most places – including the apartment’s top pool. It’s 15 mins to drive the beach, but even in high season not too difficult to find somewhere to park. Really recommend Damian & Amelia’s place – we had a fabulous time!

This was mine and my boyfriend’s second stay in Damian and Amelia’s apartment, having been very impressed with our first stay.

The second time round, it did not disappoint. Everything was perfect – so clean, with absolutely everything you need in terms of cooking utensils, a washing machine etc. The apartment even has things that you don’t necessarily need but that are a really nice touch and that make the apartment a “home away from home” – books, packs of cards, films etc.

The apartment’s stunning views of Frigiliana really are better than any that we saw in the rooftop restaurants there – sat here looking out of my window at drizzly England I would do anything to be by the pool at the apartment, looking out from the balcony at the beautiful white Andalucian buildings, lush mountains and the crystal sea in the distance – in the complete tranquility of Frigiliana that you can’t find in the more touristy Nerja nearby.

The apartment is so peaceful but you don’t feel isolated or “in the middle of no-where”) – it is only a 15 minute bus to Nerja/beaches, has a mini-market on the same street, and is within a 5-10 min walk to the best restaurants in Frigiliana, (and arguably the best restaurants in the area in comparison to Nerja, as Frigiliana boasts a high density of fantastic restaurants within a small proximity). Try The Garden, El Casino and La Taberna del Sacristan. There are also lots of beautiful hikes nearby, such as El Fuerte.

Could not recommend the apartment enough (and we already have done so to many friends!) Damian and Amelia are always so helpful and kind, the location is amazing, the apartment is spotless and everything is so tranquil. Perfect holiday!

My father and I have stayed here 10 days in februari and we really enjoyed it! Nice little balcony to enjoy our first coffee in the morning. A great terras at the top, where we have enjoyed the sun. Even though it was not that warm in february, we have layed there in our shorts. The appartment had everything we needed, it was clean and is located at a nice and quiete place. There was enough parkingspaces in front of the appartment to park our rented car. All the restaurants and bar are at walking distance of the appartment. The 10 days where gone in a split second and it was an amazing breakaway.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Frigiliana. Upon arrival we were greeted by Damian, who throughout our holiday was always on hand to help to answer any queries or questions we had, no matter how small. The Area: The area surrounding the apartment is no less than breathtaking, as the views from the pool area lookout over the hillsides and off into the distance. The whitewashed buildings to the left of Damian’s apartment look even more stunning in the evening lit up by the town lights, than they do through the day. The locals are very friendly and there are lots of supermarkets and restaurants within easy walking distance of the apartment, meaning everything you need for a relaxing holiday is right on your doorstep. If you need a beach fix, you can travel by bus or taxi, direct into Nerja within around 15 minutes, where there are nice beaches, although it does it get busy, so get their early. The Apartment: Damian’s apartment has everything you need for a short or long stay, complete with all amenities including washing machine, microwave, top grill, cooking facilities and iron etc. it is as comfortable as it is well equipped. The apartment is well positioned on the edge of the old town, which is a really beautiful part of Frigiliana, and as stated earlier right on the door step to everything you would need. The apartment was very clean with a comfortable sofa and spacious living area, with a south facing terrace, The apartment had a master bedroom and a good sized second room with two beds that my daughters both found were comfortable. The master bed was a little firm for myself, but i still managed to have a comfortable nights sleep. Just outside the apartment is the pool area, on an elevated terrace/patio, the views from which are stunning and provide a great aspect view of Frigiliana. If your looking for a relaxing holiday, where days in the sunshine is your chief objective, then i would definitely recommend Damian’s apartment.

La estancia en casa de Damian ha sido perfecta, la casa esta muy bien, con una pequeña piscina muy confortable en medio con vistas a la montaña y la casa equipada con todo lo necesario. Damian ha sido un anfitrión muy amable y atento. Lo hemos pasado estupedamente y el pueblo es muy bonito. Lo recomiendo!

Matias, July 2017

Apartamento limpio, cómodo. A pesar de no tener aire acondicionado y de la ola de calor, es bastante fresco. Situado junto al casco antiguo de Frigiliana, nos ha permitido dar muchos paseos por la zona más bonita del pueblo. Recomendado.

Mariano, July 2017

Just arrived back from our 9 day holiday in Frigiliana. I would like to thank Damian and his family for the use of this great apartment. The apartment is in a great location at the top of the old town, so literally minutes walk to all the great restaurants, bars, shops and the beautiful church and church square. The apartment itself is has 2 good sized bedrooms and a very spacious lounge area. It has all the facilities for a comfortable relaxing holiday including great Wifi, TV, Washing Machine and Bluetooth Speaker. The balcony although small is spacious enough to sit out and eat and catches many hours sunshine. The apartment is facing the communal pool and additional sun terrace, ideal for sunbathing. The pool and sun terrace has incredible views across the mountains, Frigiliana, Nerja and the sea in the distance. Also the location is very peaceful, I think the only noise we heard was a Donkey in one of the distant farms, otherwise very quite. We really loved the location of this apartment and hopefully will book for a future visit to Frigiliana. Damian is a great host, good communication prior to our visit and was waiting on our arrival to give us a tour of the apartments and also give us some recommendations on restaurants etc. He then leave you to enjoy your holiday, but is always contactable during your stay. Also checkout is very easy after your holiday. Overall a fantastic holiday Frigiliana, great apartment, great location and superb host 🙂 P.S. some restaurants and bars nearby try El Casino, El Boquetillo, La Tienda and also Bar Fandango’s which is at the top of the street (a small bar with great quality food and Tapas). Hope you have a great time in Frigiliana, we certainly did!

Cheryl, May 2017

Thanks for letting us stay in your apartment. What a gorgeous village Frigiliana is! We had a lovely break.

Jacqui, May 2017

A perfectly located and equipped apartment. So peaceful and in the most beautiful location, a short stroll to the old town of Frigiliana. Easy to find, great service from Damian throughout. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Wendy May 2017

Our month in Frigiliana at Damian’s apartment was simply great. The apartment was just the right size for us (3 adults) although we spent most time outside as the weather was amazing. We loved the breath taking views. The patio is the perfect location for relaxing and looking at the landscape. Plus, excellent communication before, during and after trip. We had such a good time, we’ve already rebooked!

Sarah, April 2017

We had a fantastic time in Frigiliana, your apartment was just perfect and in a perfect spot and we were lucky enough to have a week of sun too and so enjoyed your balcony which was a great suntrap.

Cath & Billy, Jan 2017

We had a lovely time – lovely location. Thanks for letting us stay.

Lori, Dec 2016

Linda and I really enjoyed our stay in Frigilliana and just wanted to say thanks for all your help. We especially enjoyed your recommendation of El Casino and had a wonderful evening there. Just to let you know we unplugged the water heater when leaving as we felt it would be better as nobody was coming to stay in your lovely homely apartment. I would be grateful if you could thank Sue as we for all her help.
Hopefully we will get a chance to return next year.

Niall & Linda, Oct 2016

We had a wonderful week in this lovely apartment, with our two young sons. The apartment was very clean, and had everything we needed – the kitchen was especially very well stocked with cooking utensils, as well as things like teabags and herbs and spices, and cooking oils which was great. It also had books and magazines, and a few DVDs as well as UK TV , which was useful for our sons (addicted to CBeebies). We had a lovely stay, and especially loved the pool, which had beautiful views over the hills. We probably spent about 80% of our time at the pool, which is small, but ideal for the boys who both learned to swim in the week, one with armbands, the other without. Damian had provided us with lots of useful information about places to visit, and we visited the Nerja caves, which were truly remarkable, and a great place to visit (although not with a buggy, and would recommend more for children over 4/5, as there are a lot of steps, which sometimes were a bit slippy). Frigiliana is a beautiful little town, and I’m sure we will visit again some day. I’d highly recommend this apartment, and the great customer service provided by Damian.

Jess & James, Oct 2016

Lovely hillside village with fantastic views, well located apartment with many nearby cafes, and resturaunts, nearby Nerja with great beaches and many shops, large shopping mall about 10 kilometres away.

Anne & Anthony, Oct 2016 

Little bit of paradise. This listing is exactly what it says perfect in location, its quiet, bright, and very well equipped. Expertly clean and well maintained.Every question we asked was quickly answered .I would recommend this apartment to all as even the price was extremely reasonable too. We enjoyed walking all over from here and sampled every restaurant everyone was so friendly the view is just breath taking from the roof top .Thanks for having us we shall book again next time.

Wendy, Oct 2016

After a week long stay in La Fuente vieja totally chilled. The property was in a small complex with everything we needed(very well equipped), the pool was great to cool off, with spectacular views from the pool terrace. The apartment was very well situated at the end of the old town of Frigiliana but within minutes(walking) of numerous and varied restaurants, shops and bars. We ate extremely well for our entire weeks stay. Frigilana is an absolute gem, full of charm and character(but some of the streets were very steep if you chose to visit the upper levels) yet only a short bus ride away to the much busier beach resort of Nerja. We did not hire a car for our stay but this did not prove a problem as between the owner Damian’s local knowledge, information provided and a reasonable bus service we were able to visit a number of other resorts nearby, our favourite being the port area at Marina Del Este. For a longer stay a car would be a bonus to explore the area further. We would like to thank Damian and Amelia for all their help and we will definitely be returning. Their communications are second to none. Stunning Holiday!!!

Marian, Aug 2016

Beautiful, spotlessly clean aprtment with stunning views. If you thought the pictures of the apartment looked good, the reality is even better! My boyfriend and I spent a long time deliberating whether to stay in Nerja or Frigiliana but after such an enjoyable stay at Damian’s apartment we are planning our next trip back to Frigiliana; Nerja’s much less touristy and much more authentic neighbour. The apartment is extremely clean, has all the utensils and appliances that you would want (and more – films, packs of cards etc). My boyfriend and I ate at a lot of the restaurants with “the best views of Frigiliana”, but we both unanimously agreed that the best views were actually those by the poolside at Damian’s apartment. Honestly stunning and very romantic. The location was ideal too, only 10 mins or so walk from the bus stop to Nerja, and less than 5 mins from some fantastic restaurants – try Oshun (food) and La Taberna Sacristán (service and great steak). Despite its location it was so peaceful and relaxing. Couldn’t recommend the apartment more.

Jade, July 2016

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment and truly enjoyed our stay in Frigiliana (such a lovely village)! We unfortunately didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Damien in person but were kindly greeted by his neighbor. Everything was well organized, from booking the apartment to checking out.
