Our Frigiliana cottages La Reserva and El Torin are in the mountainous part of Frigiliana above the source of the river Higueron in Los Almachares only a few metres from the Axarquia National Park and the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama mountain ranges. Here you are fortunate enough to be only 75 metres away from the National Park of Sierra Almijara.
When it was finally decided that this area would be a National Park my wife Rosario and I realized this would be an ideal place to build our two Frigiliana cottages.
Thanks to its status as a nature reserve and the difficult terrain, this beautiful area hasn’t been ruined by masses of holiday homes.
As you might imagine, due to the location, the building work was difficult, but the problems were surmounted with hard work and belief in our dream. In all, the work commenced on April 6th 2001, took 9 months, and was completed just before the end of that year. We selected the material for the Frigiliana cottages ourselves, and did so very carefully as we wanted to maintain a relationship with the natural environment; the aim was to make the houses comfortable with a natural look and feel, in order to harmonise with the National Park. The Frigiliana cottages are surrounded by olive groves and pine woods from time to time you may see squirrels, foxes, rabbits, mountain goats, wild boar, partridge, eagles, and other wild creatures.
It would have been easy to extend the Frigiliana properties but we were determined to preserve the olive groves out of respect for our ancestors from whom we inherited the land; we like to think they would be pleased with the changes we have made. To speak of our Frigiliana cottages La Reserva and El Torin makes us proud as they are the fruits of great effort and love for the project. We are very happy with the results and are educating our children to similarly love and care for the place which will eventually belong to them. These Frigiliana cottages La Reserva and El Torin are beautifully equipped and have everything you need for complete relaxation in a completely natural environment , in a place where you will really feel at home. Our Frigiliana cottages are “above the rest” both metaphorically and physically and we want our customers to know that both the roads leading to La Reserva and El Torin are mainly unmade and unsurfaced in some sections until you reach the houses.
The quickest way up is from the MA 5105 (Nerja-Frigiliana) going down from La Molineta towards the river on a very steep slope with various sharp curves but with a base of asphalted concrete until you reach the river. Care must be taken with oncoming traffic. The river crossing is a shallow ford in winter but in summer is completely dry. From the other side of the river onwards it is an unasphalted road in some sections. In all it is a five minute trip from the main road but we advise care.
The longer easier route is via Nerja Town centre. It is practically flat but it takes 12 minutes.
It is a pleasure for us to see our visitors come here from many other countries and enjoy the town of Frigiliana, our generous climate, and the area´s tranquility. During your stay we hope you come to love the area as much as we do, and see some of the beauty of the Sierra Almijara. On behalf of my wife and
family I wish you a very pleasant Frigiliana holiday, and we hope you will come again and again; thank you for choosing our Frigiliana cottages for your visit.
Frances B Sonoma ( USA ) A delightful cottage with great views Left on Sep 10, 2012 for a stay in Jul 2010 Over the past six years we have stayed at all five of Javier and Rosario's properties and we look forward to spending many more vacations with them. They rightfully pride themselves on providing a home away from home for their guests and have great attention to detail. The cottage is reached by a very steep road, but once there, you won't want to move. Everything is provided for a comfortable, pleasant stay in the sun, just bring the vino and the lamb chops to throw on the BBQ. Relax on the terrace and gaze at the incredible views over the river valley across to the old village of Frigiliana and bask around the pool or enjoy the house with all it's comforts.
A Tranquil and Relaxing place, so close to Nature. Left on Oct 1, 2012 for a stay in Sep 2012 This was our third stay at La Reserva and each time we have been there we have really enjoyed it. The villa is in a private, beautiful and peaceful location, high on the hillside above a river bed, on the edge of the national park. It is surrounded by mountains and eagles soar overhead whilst bee eaters and swallows fly past at eye level. The villa itself is attractive and comfortable and has a homely and relaxing feel. It is positioned such that it gets sunshine most of the day and fantastic sunsets in the evening. The owners Javier and Rosario are always very warm and welcoming hosts and do all that they can to ensure that you have a wonderful holiday.
Fabulous get away from it all villa with wonderful views Left on Oct 16, 2012 for a stay in Jun 2012 This is the first of two villas that I have stayed in belonging to Javier and Rosario (I stayed in Dachita in October 12). Both have their strong points: Dachita is easier to get to but La Reserva really allows you to get away from it all. The villa is situated on the opposite side of the river bed just outside the village of Frigiliana. The journey up to it is not for the faint hearted and I advise fully comp insurance and a reasonably powerful car (there is an easier route in from Nerja which Javier will show you) but boy is it worth it. You have the sun from mid morning right until it goes down over the next hill - so in Summer that means 9-10pm at night (great for those who don't come out from the shade until 4pm). As with all of Javier's villas it is spotlessly clean and incredibly well equipped: satelite TV, free wifi, DVD/CD player, library, dishwasher (v important), washing machine, hairdryer, iron etc. The welcome pack provided by Javier & Rosario is second to none: wine, beer, milk, bread, fruit, pate, cold meat, pastries, water, orange juice, chocolate mousse etc quite amazing. All towels are provided including pool towels. There are two bedrooms, one twin and one double & one bathroom with an enormous powerful shower. There is a barbecue and outside eating area and a small but clean pool. Our intention was to completely relax and we did. I think we only left the villa three times to go shopping - however there are plenty of beautiful walks nearby from the villa for those who are feeling more energetic. I can really recommend any of Javier's villas as he gave us a guided tour of a few others and my friend had stayed in the one in Frigiliana. Javier and Rosario are delightful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. They stay away and leave you alone if that is what you want but are there in a trice if you have a problem or concern. That even extends to getting two helpless females out of a mess when their car got stuck on a road. Delightful holiday.
Malcolm P Tenterden, United Kingdom Above average owners and accommodation Left on Nov 2, 2012 for a stay in Oct 2012 We have been visiting La Reserva for 6 years, and always look forward to going back. It has a lovely position overlooking the valley towards Nerja, situated on the edge of the National Park. It is "away from it all" and ideal for anyone appreciating total peace and quiet. The drive to the property is not for the faint-hearted, down a steep lane and across a river bed, but it is manageable and when you reach your destination you realise it is worth it. The owners are now friends of ours and you cannot fault their attention to detail, and are always on the end of the phone should any problem occur. Holiday there once, and we guarantee you will return.
Fanny T Torremolinos La mejor casa rural que se pueda encontrar Left on Dec 13, 2012 for a stay in Nov 2012 Simplemente irrepetible, Totalmente alejada de las supuestas "casa rurales" que hay por ahí, es una delicia salir a desayunar, o leer o tomar algo en su terraza, lo mismo que pasar la noche en su salón, decorado con un gusto infinito. Aparte de sus dueños, una delicia de educación y saber estar exquisitos, todo simpatía sin ser empalagosos, se hacen invisibles al momento, lo que se agradece en una escapada con tu pareja. Qué decir del entorno? es simplemente apabullante, con el parque de sierra Tejeda a la espalda, si quieres hacer senderismo, sólo tienes que coger la mochila y salir de la casa, la ruta de los Cahorros es muy bonita, y cerca está la del río Chíllar, el Cielo, el Acebuchal...... Volveremos en cuanto podamos, seguro, gracias Rosario y Javier NUESTRA RESPUESTA: Gracias por ese fantástico comentario. Es un placer que nuestros huéspedes disfruten su estancia en nuestras casas. Vuestro comentario nos ayuda a mejorar y seguir adelante cada día. Un abrazo para toda la familia, y feliz año nuevo. Hasta siempre. Rosario y Javier
fdavidbs Malaga, Spain Beautiful house in an incredible area Left on Apr 16, 2013 for a stay in Apr 2011 A group of friends spent a couple of days in this beautiful and perfectly equipped house, near Frigiliana, Nerja. The views are incredible, as are the suroundings, you can just walk out the house and head for a great trekking. Also, short distance to the village, and short drive to Nerjar..one of the most beautiful towns on the Costa del Sol with great beaches and restaurants. The owners where really nice and helpful, I couldn´t ask for a more pleasant stay... Will come back!
Annemarie N Amsterdam, The Netherlands Fantastisch huis, geweldig uitzicht en zeer attente eigenaren Left on May 9, 2013 for a stay in Apr 2013 Het huisje ligt tegen een natuurgebied aan en is heerlijk rustig. Wat je op de foto's niet ziet is het schitterende uitzicht over de Middellandse zee. Het huis zelf is zeer netjes en compleet. Vaatwasser, afwasmachine, prima bedden en Engelstalige tv. Heerlijke douche! Het ontvangst was top, Xavier en Rosario hebben ons opgewacht en voorgereden naar het huisje. Weggetjes er naar toe zijn een uitdaging :) Ze waren goed bereikbaar voor vragen. Halverwege ons verblijf is er schoongemaakt, met nieuw linnen en handdoeken, top. In de buurt is het lekker eten in Frigiliana en Nerja. Echt een aanrader!
Robert F Biggleswade, United Kingdom Wow ..... what a view!! Left on Sep 4, 2013 for a stay in Aug 2013 Fantastic location and a super holiday home for 4. The views from La Reserva were absolutely stunning, with views down the ravine, across to the sea in one direction and towards the town of Frigiliana the other way - seeing it in its glory on the top of the hill. We could have stayed sitting on the 'veranda' for hours just looking at the views. Owners were fantastic.......meeting us part way from the airport to make sure we found the house. Also called in to change the linen and sort out the pool regularly. Javier and Rosario were able to speak English well, so we could have good conversations with them and by the end of the holiday we felt we got to know them quite well. We are thinking about how we could visit one of the owner's villas again in the future. OUR RESPONSE: Dear family: Thank you very much for a nice comment, and we are very happy your holidays pass perfect. When you decide again enjoy here in the Frigiliana mountains, you are welcome always. All the best for you all, and take care. Rosario and Javier
KarenB27553 Higham Ferrers, United Kingdom Fabulous house with amazing views Left on Sep 22, 2013 for a stay in Sep 2013 This was our first trip to Spain and our first holiday abroad for a number of years and we cannot wait to go back. The house was immaculate with all the things you would expect and more. The views were amazing, we did not get bored by them at all. We wanted a peaceful relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we got with the added bonus of watching Eagles souring overhead and deer galloping through the trees. You are surrounded by pine, olive and fruit trees with a mountain and sea view as a back drop "stunning". Javier and Rosario were really helpful both in the booking process and during our stay. They are and defiantly should be very proud of the standard of accommodation they offer for rental. We will defiantly do a return visit.
Malcolm P Tenterden, United Kingdom Position, position, position Left on Oct 21, 2013 for a stay in Oct 2013 If you want a holiday away from the madding crowds, this is for you. Once you negotiate the winding roads, you sit on the top of the hill, surrounded by olives and avocados, looking across the valley to people tending their crops and animals, and all you hear is bird song or even silence, except a few walkers en route to the hills. Javier and Rosario are exceptional owners, and nothing is too much trouble, to the extent they have now become friends, we have been there so often!! Get used to the drive there, don't be afraid, it is easy when you know how, and it will be worth it!!!!
Dolorata Rotterdam, The Netherlands Great house with fantastic views Left on Oct 26, 2013 for a stay in Oct 2013 A lovely place, with lovely views of the countryside and the sea. Situated in an olive grove. The house is on the edge of the park. You walk in the park for great short or long walks. And in 10 minutes by car in Nerja. Javier and Rosala very welcoming. The house is fully equipped. The pool is a great place to enjoy the tranquility and the wonderful smells of nature. We definitely come back soon
Samantha M Manchester, United Kingdom An absolutely beautiful villa with stunning views. Left on Apr 22, 2014 for a stay in Apr 2014 We have just come back from a lovely week away. Villa La Reserva in Frigillana is by far the most beautiful and picturesque place we have ever stayed, The owners Javier and Rosario are so friendly and welcoming and very attentive to the needs of our family. The welcome food pack was such a lovely surprise and the villa is so well equipped. Our two boys aged 5 and 7 loved the swimming pool and they said that it was the best family holiday that we have ever had. We can't wait to return again soon. OUR RESPONSE: Dear family, desr friends: Thank you very much, for your lovely review. We are very happy, you enjoy your holidays with us. For us is a pleasure, when our guest safe good remembers for a lovely holidays. You are welcome always, and hope see you very soon. Take good care, and sent our best wushes and our friendship. Rosario, Javier and children
Renske_Lars The Hague, The Netherlands Lovely house with a stunning view Left on Jul 13, 2014 for a stay in Jul 2014 We had a great welcome by the the owners Rosario and Javier who guided us to the house from our meeting point. We felt at home straight away, the owners arranged for a cot and a baby chair free of charge and even provided a welcome package. The house is situated on a hill (with a private road) and the national park is straight above the house. Given the location it takes some effort to get there (car with a strong engine is a plus), however the view and privacy of the house more than compensated for this. The house itself is equipped with everything you will need, there is a swimming pool plus a large bbq. If you are looking for a house with privacy, a stunning view, all the comfort you need, this is the place to be! OUR RESPONSE: Dear family: Thank you very much for lovely review. We are very happy you enjoy your holidays in our La Reserva. For us the best and more important is know our guest enjoy the holidays. We are very pleased see you again here. You are very, very good people. Love Rosario and Javier
macalmont Exceeded all expectations. Left on Jul 19, 2014 for a stay in Jul 2014 Having never felt the need to leave a review before, we felt that we should share our stay at La Reserva with everyone, as it was so wonderful. From the first enquiry made through TripAdvisor, we received excellent service from Javier and Rosario. They responded to our every question and even booked a rental car for us, that was waiting for us at the airport. When we forgot our electric adapter, we asked Javier where to buy, but within an hour he brought one to us. The fridge was stocked with groceries on our arrival, which meant that we could relax as soon as we arrived. The house was equipped with everything we could need, from books to a blender, from a barbecue to a bucket and spade for the children. The pool was great to cool off after sunbathing on the loungers. The nearest beach was a 10-15 minute drive away at Nerja, where there is shopping and the supermarket. The pretty village of Fragiliana is on the other side of the valley and is well worth a visit. We had the best time so much so that we will be returning as soon as possible.
This was one of the most enjoyable holidays ever. The house is beautiful and perfectly fitted out. The bed very comfortable. The pool perfect to jump in and out off to cool off. The setting and views amazing. Javier and Rosario the owners are amazing. They could not be more helpful or pleasant. We went to a wedding in Nerja and as taxis do not service this area, they dropped and collected us. I have never had a more relaxing break. We did go to Frigiliana quite a bit. A really beautiful town. Have to recommend the Polish Restaurant. Food was amazing and it certainly encouraged me to start looking up Polish recipes. The only thing to watch out for is the drive up. It is very steep and you need to have a decent car and nerves of steel. We loved it though and you will too. I cant begin to explain how wonderful this house is or how lovely Javier and Rosario are, but if you go you will find out and like us you will have the best holiday ever. OUR RESPONSE: Dear Simon and Maria: We are very happy your lovely review. Thank you very much. Hope next time you coming, the car hire you used are a better car, is for this we recomend the flat route to Nerja ( only 10 minutes and is flat). Is a pleasure for us help you when the taxi no arrive at this area. Happy see you again here, and you are welcome always. Love Rosario, Javier and children
Malcolm P Tenterden, United Kingdom Back again! Left on Oct 21, 2014 for a stay in Oct 2014 We return to La Reserva every year, and if anything, it gets better each time. This year there have been improvements to the pool and kitchen, but otherwise it is the home from home we always expect. To sit on that hillside in the sun around the pool, reading a book and totally chilling out, is something else, only the sound of the birds or the odd passing rambler, it is total relaxation. Javier and Rosario are above average owners, nothing is too much trouble, we have been holidaying there for so many years, we consider them as friends. We would recommend La Reserva to anyone, except those wanting a lively holiday. It is only for those wanting peace and quiet. OUR RESPONSE: Dear friends: Thank you, thank you for your lovely review. We apreciete your love for our La Reserva, in the same time for us you are very special guest freinds, after more than 15 years enjoy your holidays with us. We are very happy see you here every year, and now a little sad for don't see you until next October. Love for you both and all your family Rosario, Javier and children.
My wife and I have just enjoyed 8 weeks of bliss at this excellent villa set on the edge of the Parque Natural just outside Frigiliana. From start to finish the owners Javier and Rosario were a delight to deal with, from our original inspection visit last October, to our friendship that formed during our break. Do not be mistaken, they are not the "nosey landlords" they are only there when needed or requested to ensure you enjoy every aspect of your visit. As we enjoy a good walk in the hills the location was ideal as most of the marked trails could be accessed from our front door. The casita is well equipped with all you need including BBC Scotland on the TV. The wifi due to the location in the Campo is okay for emails etc. but do not expect to video call or stream media. Rosario changes the towels and linen every week and Javier fixed us up with a local delivery of logs for the fire at a great price. The pool and furniture were excellent (yes even in January) for sunbathing and the occasional plunge. The access road is a challenge but once you get used to it the benefits are the privacy, seclusion and stunning views over Nerja and out to the sea you are rewarded. Do not take our word for it all the reviews can not be wrong? P.S. We have booked to go back in October!!!!!! OUR RESPONSE: Dear good friends: Thank yhou, thank you for you lovely review. We a re very happy you enjoy this 8 weeks. ANd for us after your enjoyment we are very happy for have now 2 very good friends. Only few houres you leave, and we miss you, and happy see you in July and in your booking for next October. Take good care in your retourn home, and here you have another home. Love for you both and your family. Rosario, Javier and children
Karen M Barnstaple, United Kingdom A little peice of heaven Left on Jul 2, 2015 for a stay in Jun 2015 This was our first holiday to Spain, we like peace & quiet & a home from home, this is exactly what we got. The villa was exactly like the photos, it was spotless inside & out. The bed was comfy with good pillows, lots of wardrobe space. Bathroom was big with 2 sinks & great shower. Living area & kitchen well equipped with everything you could need. Had 4 English channels ion the TV (great bonus) and free wifi. The veranda was my favourite place to sit in the morning, fantastic views to the sea and across the valley, splashing about in the pool was great fun, we felt like kids again and a brilliant way to cool down. Javier and Rosario sent us directions from the airport and met us just off the motorway, this was really helpful to take us to the villa, took all the stress of trying to find it for the first time and yes it is a steep road up to the villa but once you've done it once it's fine and boy oh boy the position and view is most definitely worth it. It is very private and has such a wonderful feel to the villa, it's like a little peace of heaven. Javier & Rosario were there if you needed them, Rosario even brought up some curtains to put up on the terrace to give some shade in the afternoon, so thoughtful. Nerva is a lovely town with lots of great places to eat and shops to have a look in, also if you like walking there is a fantastic walk not far from the villa near the two water towers called "Rio Chillar" it's a walk along a river valley, go early in the morning when it cooler and less busy. If you are looking for that relaxing holiday, with peace and privacy, stunning views and beautiful home to stay in, this is definitely the place to come. OUR RESPONSE: Dear friends: Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy you enjoy your holidays in La Reserva, and you are welcome always. We wish you have a nice 19 December with your family and your good friends. We thinking in you, and wish all the best for the future. Is a pleasure meet you again when you have possibility time for holidays. All our best wishes and our love. Take good care. Rosario, Javier and children
Alan W Aberdeen, United Kingdom Relaxing and comfortable Left on Jul 19, 2015 for a stay in Jul 2015 This was our third holiday rental in Spain. We stayed in a villa on the opposite side of the valley on our first visit then Orgiva on our second. Our visit to La Reserva was excellent. Javier and Rosario were very helpful and obviously take great care of the villa and its guests. Daily visits from the dark brown squirrel were much enjoyed as was that of a mountain goat and it's kid. Great views from the patio area to the sea past Nerja as well as to Frigliana. Being on the west side of the valley meant that we could enjoy a comfortable seat out on the patio most of the day and enjoy full sun if we wanted. The villa was well planned, spacious and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks for a great holiday Javier and Rosario. OUR RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy you have a nice holidays in La Reserva. We wish see you again here soon. You are welcome always. Thank you for choose our house for your holidays. Best wishes Rosario and Javier
Thomas Z Leverkusen, Germany Tolles Ferienhaus für Wanderungen und Strandurlaub Left on Oct 6, 2015 for a stay in Sep 2015 Das Ferienhaus liegt direkt am Naturpark und ist daher idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen.Dennoch ist es nur 5 Minuten mit dem auto von Frigiliana (steiler Weg!) und 15 Minuten vom Strand in Nerja entfernt.

gsmcwilliams glenview, Illinois, USA Amazing Villa on top of hill overlooking sea, valley and town Left on Jul 17, 2016 for a stay in Jun 2016 Our stay at La Reserva was absolutely perfect. Our hosts, Javier and Rosario, welcomed us with open arms and were so kind with their hospitality. They escorted us up the road to the villa, where there was a welcome basket of goodies and a few necessities in the fridge to get us started. The terraces and pool offer the perfect setting to relax and unwind. We were a short drive to the trailhead for hiking El Chillar, a popular excursion along and in a river. An unforgettable experience! OUR RESPONSE: Dear family: Thank you very much for your lovely review. Is for us a pleasure you enjoy your stay in La Reserva. You are very good guest family, and our houses are always the door open for you. You are welcome always, and we wish all the best for all the family. Take good care always. With our friendship and love Rosario, Javier and children.
Dicksons Peebles, Scotland. Tranquil location with fabulous views Left on Sep 4, 2016 for a stay in Aug 2016 Went with my wife and two children (currently at University). If you are looking for a peaceful break in a lovely small villa with great views this could be for you - ideal for small family group. Javier and his lovely wife Rosariio made the booking experience easy and had everything ready for us- they even met us at the main road to guide us up to the villa. The access road can be challenging but you will get used to it - worth it :-) A lovely spot as flagged by other reviewers. To be honest - we didn't do much as we knew the area well - just chilled. OUR RESPONSE: Dear Dickson family: Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are very happy you enjoy your holidays in La Reserva. For us is a pleasure see you again here, always. You are a excellent family, and perfect guest. Thank you very much, and we wish all the best. Take good care. Rosario, Javier and children
alan g Hesdin, France Relaxation Left on Jan 11, 2017 for a stay in Dec 2016 La Reserva was all we hoped it would be for a relaxing and peaceful holiday , we had everything supplied to make us comfortable with extra touches of a hamper and cava for New Years eve from our hosts Xavier and Rosario. The area was very scenic and we had the most amazing views from our balcony. There are some interesting but steep walks in the area which were very scenic, we will stay again with Xavier& Rosario so we can see more of the countryside and beaches. OUR RESPONSE: Dear A & W: Happy you enjoy your stay in La Reserva. We apreciate your review, thank you very much for decide pur house for your winter holidays. You are very good guest, and we wish see you here again soon. You are welcome always and anytime. Take care. Sincerelly Rosario, Javier and family
mfavogels Culemborg, The Netherlands Fantastic accomodation with stunning views Left on Mar 16, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017 Couldn't get enough of the amazing views. Perfectly located at the border of a national park. The piece and quiet was a joy after a city or beach trip. As also was the pool, clean and refreshing. Accomodation was very clean and cosy. Easy communication with Javier; he picked us up in Nerja to show the way. The little garden and balcony with flowers were beautiful. Even though it was below 10 degrees in the evening, we still sat outside with a blanket and a glass of whine to enjoy the view. Thanks so much Javier and family! OUR RESPONSE: Dear family: Thank you very much for your lovely review. Is for us a pleasure know your stay are very good. We are very pleased see you here again and soon. You all are welcome always. And... you are very, very good driver. Congratulations. Love for you all, and take care Rosario, Javier and children
Anniemacmac Chichester, United Kingdom Beautiful villa, lovely place and lovely people Left on May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017 Had a wonderful week relaxing before baby arrives.

mandmavidson Stirling, United Kingdom A perfect holiday....... Left on Jul 7, 2017 for a stay in Jun 2017 One of my favourite holidays ever.....made so by our lovely hosts Javier and Rosario where nothing is too much trouble. Both met us by car and we were able to follow them to La Reserva. The final approach is really steep but we quickly got used to it and it's so worth it for a stunning stunning view, peace and tranquility! Rio Chillar is 10 minutes drive away and is a must to experience a beautiful river walk. Javier also recommended local coves that we visited which were beautiful. It's an authentic Spanish villa and a lot of love has been put into making it a lovely place to stay including shaded seating areas to enjoy lunch. We got to enjoy all the beautiful flowers and plants that Rosario has surrounding the terrace while having a wee glass of wine or two. As I said, a perfect holiday and we would love to return. our response: Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are very happy your stay in La Reserva is a enjoyable time. For us, this is the more important. Thank you again for your excellent safe to our plants. We are very happy see you again here. You are very good guest, and you are welcome always. ( maybe with your children?) With our sincerelly friendship Rosario, Javier and children
Perfect retreat Left on Jul 9, 2017 for a stay in May 2017 We had a wonderful week at La Reserva, a beautifully appointed and secluded villa with stunning views down the valley to Nerja. Right on the edge of Sierras de Tejeda National Park we enjoyed many walks and with Frigiliana and Nerja only a short drive away there was plenty to keep us occupied. Javier and Rosario were the most welcoming and helpful hosts, we couldn't recommend La Reserva enough. We are already looking forward to a return trip.

Wonderful week Left on Jul 12, 2017 for a stay in Jul 2017 We had high hopes when we booked La Reserva and were not disappointed. All communications with Javier left us with no doubt that our hosts would be friendly and would go out of their way to ensure our stay would be happy and stress free. We were met by both Javier and Rosario and immediately warmed to them. We drove the shortcut to the house which involved negotiating a narrow, steep and winding road-a little challenging at first but after a few trips up and down we thought nothing of it. There is a slightly longer and easier route which takes you into Nerja. We did this once but decided to use the shortcut for the rest of the holiday. The views from La Reserva down the valley to the sea are simply stunning-it was hard to tear ourselves away and rarely did. There is a fabulous outside area with very comfortable sun loungers, cushions and plenty of sun umbrellas. Everything is immaculate. Javier and Rosario had provided a very generous Welcome Pack including wine, bread, cold meats and cheese which we very much appreciated. Nearby Nerja (15 minutes)has a good number of supermarkets so my advice would be stock up as you really won't want to leave the house! The plunge pool is very pretty and immaculate with a working pool light for late night dips. There is no doubt that for a week of total relaxation in beautiful surroundings La Reserva hits the spot. We look forward to returning for another holiday and meeting up with Javier and Rosario again. They are there if you need them but do not intrude on your stay. Lovely hosts. Gail Henderson OUR RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. For us is a pleasure your experince are excellent. We are very happy see you again here soon. You are welcome always. Our house is your house. All the best and see you soon. Rosario and Javier
Fabulous! Left on Aug 26, 2017 for a stay in Jul 2017 We had a wonderful stay at La Reserva. What a beautiful, well presented and clean villa with a very welcome and refreshing salt water pool. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and quality family time. Javier and Rosario were so lovely, friendly and attentive. We would highly recommend a stay at La Reserva. OUR RESPONSE: Dear family: Thank you very much for your review. we are very happy know you enjoy your stay in La Reserva. We wish see you again here, you are welcome always. Love for you all Rosario, Javier and family
L V Dublin, Ireland Perfect Week Left on Sep 4, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017 We've just returned from an amazing week at La Reserva. The villa itself has everything you need, well equipped and beautifully furnished. The setting is quiet, private, peaceful and very relaxing. The pool and outdoor terrace are fantastic and we spent most of the week outside enjoying the sunshine and breath taking views! This place really lives up to the photos and all the good reviews. It is less than 10 minutes from the towns of Nerja and Frijiliana, so has easy access to supermarkets and restaurants but is located in the mountains so you also feel like you're away from it all. Our hosts Javier and Rosario were so welcoming, friendly and helpful but also didn't intrude on our holiday and were a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking process. I couldn't recommend this place more!! OUR RESPONSE: Dear L & J: Thank you very much for your review. We are very pleased know your experience in La Reserva is perfect. For us is the more important. Thank you again for take good care of our plants as well as the whole house.You are very good guest, and you are welcome always. For us is a pleasure see you soon, with the new member family. In the same time we wish all the best for you all. Congratulations in advance for the baby Take good care and see you soon. Love Rosario, Javier and children

hhaeussler Obernai, France Superbe ! Left on Oct 28, 2017 for a stay in Oct 2017 Nous avons passé une semaine magnifique dans cette maison pour 4 très bien équipée avec un caractère typique et familial. La piscine même petite est très agréable pour se rafraîchir. Vue splendide sur la mer. Au pied des collines à l'écart de la ville. Le propriétaire Javier est adorable et très soucieux de notre confort. À recommander ! NUESTRA RESPUESTA: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario. Nos complace saber que vuestra experiencia ha sido positiva durante la estancia. Es un placer volver a veros de nuevo por La Reseerva. Seréis siempre bienvenidas. Os deseamos un feliz regreso a casa, y os enviamos nuestros mejores deseos. Un abrazo muy sincero Javier y familia
Gemma S Una casa que enamora nada más verla Left on Dec 10, 2017 for a stay in Dec 2017 Somos una familia de Granada con dos niñas, hemos pasado el puente de Diciembre en esta preciosa casa y la eleccion no ha podído ser mejor. Volvemos a casa con sensaciones de tranquilidad, de paz, de haber pasado unos días increíbles, y por supuesto, de querer repetir en cuanto podamos. Le damos las gracias a Javier y Rosario por su amabilidad desde el primer momento, la casa está muy bien equipada y su bienvenida... de las mejores. La chimenea estaba preparada para esa primera puesta en marcha, en la mesa de la cocina había fruta, vino, pan, cereales, zumos para las niñas, hasta cerveza fresquita en el frigorífico. No le falta detalle a la casa, juegos, música, películas, y unas mantas para completar la escena. La casa queda totalmente recomendada, lo merece la casa y lo merecen los dueños tan amables, hospitalarios y cordiales que hemos tenido. Gracias y hasta pronto!! Gemma y Victor NUESTRA RESPUESTA: Querida familia: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario. Nos sentimos muy contentos de saber que vuestra estancia en La Reserva ha sido una excelente experiencia. Para nosotros ha sido un placer teneros como huéspedes. Habéis sido todo un ejemplo en la limpieza, el cuidado de toda la casa y vuestra valoración sobre el lugar, nos ayuda mucho para que otras personas sepan donde vendrán. Muchas gracias de nuevo, y nos encantará volver a veros por Frigiliana. Un fuerte abrazo y nuestros mejores deseos para toda la familia. Sinceramente Rosario y Javier
Fantastische rustige plek Left on Jan 8, 2018 for a stay in Dec 2017 Fantastische plek om tot rust te komen, te wandelen en te genieten van het fantastische uitzicht. In het huis was alles aanwezig wat we maar nodig hadden. Het welkomstpakket met wijn, sinaasappels van t land, sla en tomaten, wat thee en koffie etc hebben we ook gewaardeerd. Genoeg om een eerste avond door te komen en een bescheiden maaltijd te maken. Wij hadden Ford Fiesta gehuurd, die had helaas erg veel moeite met de stijle weg naar boven. Tip voor de wandelaars,via de rivierbedding kun je naar Nerja lopen, ongeveer 6 kilometer. OUR RESPONSE: Dear guest: Thank you very much for your review. Excellent know your stay with us is a good experience. You are welcome always. Happy see you again soon. Best wishes Rosarioand Javier
maureen h Sunderland, United Kingdom Great place, great people! Left on Jan 31, 2018 for a stay in Jan 2018 What a brilliant find! We have just returned after spending 10 wonderful, relaxing days at La Reserva. To open the shutters in the morning to stunning views of countryside and sea, then to spend the day relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of La Reserva and finally to end the day watching the glorious sunsets from the veranda was for us just perfect! Thank you Javier and Rosario for the very generous welcome pack, for providing such an very well-equipped and comfortable home and especially for the kindness and care you showed towards us. La Reserva proved to be a very special place and has given us such wonderful memories. We highly recommend La Reserva and are very much looking forward to our next visit. Dave and Maureen OUR RESPONSE: Dear Maureen and Dave: Thank you very much for your lovely enquiry. We are vey happy you enjoy your stay with us in La Reserva. You are very good guest, and for us is a pleasure meet you again, always. You are welcome. Take care and send our best wishes for you and family. Sincerely Rosario and Javie
Sublime: Cracking accommodation set in stunning elevated location. La Raserva provides flexible home from home amenities for us and our visiting guest. Fitted out to a very comprehensive standard with pretty much everything and more to cater for all eventualities. We have been visiting this area for almost 20 years and continue to love and appreciate what the location has to offer. If your looking for a relaxing hideaway retreat, which still provides access to the beautiful village of Frigiliana and the activity on offer at nearby town Nerja then La Reserva and its neighbouring property El Torin should tick all the boxes. A car is essential, speak to the owners about hiring one. The road up to La Reserva is fairly narrow and steep, benefiting from a concrete finish and you soon become accustomed on how to negotiate the incline, the views and aspect are more than compensation. We never tire of observing the views from the sun filled terrace. There is always something to catch your eye and entertain you. Relaxing dinner on the extensive terrace and divine sunsets are one of the main reasons we continue to return. So my recommendation would be to stack the car with a decent shop of fresh produce from the nearby supermarkets and a tipple that takes your fancy and simply relax, chill, read a book or two and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings. For those that wish to explore on foot then lots of routes are on offer with plenty options available depending on activity level required. One final word, the property owners Rosario & Javier take a genuine interest in ensuring we have a wonderful vacation and will make themselves available should the need arise and offer advice any subject to make your stay extra special. Thank you again Rosario & Javier for enabling us to have a wonderful vacation, just what we needed and look forward to coming back soon. Cheers OUR RESPONSE: Thank you to you again, for after many, many years, you still choose our houses for your holidays. We are very happy and we are very pleased see you again here. Is excellent your friendship and you are special guest friends for all our family. Thank you again. Our love Rosario, Javier and children
Virginie H Cholet, France Superbe vue Left on Aug 28, 2018 for a stay in Jun 2018 Superbe vue, des différentes terrasses, dont on ne se lasse pas.

Très bon accueil et très bonne disponibilité de Javier et Rosario. Nous retournerons avec plaisir à la Reserva ! NUESTRA RESPUESTA: Querida familia: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario. Estamos muy contentos de que en vuestra estancia en LA RESERVA hayáis encontrado la paz y el relax que buscabais. Será siempre un placer volver a veros por Frigiliana. Siempre seréis bienvenidos. Un abrazo para toda la familia y hasta pronto! Rosario y Javier
Christian V Traumhaus in Traumlage mit supernetten Gastgebern Left on Aug 27, 2018 for a stay in Jul 2018 Anfang Juli durften wir (Ehepaar um die 50) Gäste sein im Haus La Reserva. Die Lage ist wunderschön am Hang eines trockenen Flußbetts mit Blick auf viel Grün und das Meer. Oberhalb des Hauses beginnt das Naturschutzgebiet, unterhalb befinden sich nur vereinzelt ein paar Häuser, die nicht alle bewohnt waren. Also alles sehr ruhig, wie wir es lieben. Die Zufahrt ist ein wenig abenteuerlich, aber nichts was man nicht mit einem normalen PKW und ein wenig Fahrpraxis nicht bwerkstelligen könnte. Das Haus und der Garten sind sehr liebevoll angelegt und sehr gepflegt. Man merkt, daß Javier und Rosario mit Leidenschaft und Hingabe Gastgeber sind. Es fehlt an nichts, selbst eine Waschmaschine ist vorhanden. Der Pool ist ein Traum und völlig ausreichend zum relaxen für zwei Personen. Bei unserer Ankunft war tatsächlich bereits ein Rundum-Sorglos-Paket vorhanden. Wasser, Wein, Bier, Brot, Obst, Milch, Marmelade, Eier, Wurst, Käse ... alles da. Sowas haben wir noch nie erlebt. Das ganze Haus super sauber und gepflegt. Javier hat uns am zweiten Tag besucht, um zu sehen, ob alles in Ordnung ist. Als er erfahren hat, daß die Klimaanlage unseres Autos kaputt gegangen ist, hat er sofort eine Werkstatt eines Bekannten informiert. Wir konnten noch am selben Tag das Auto dort hinbringen, die Fehlersuche wurde sofort gestartet. Letztenendes mußte das Auto über das Wochenende in der Werkstatt bleiben, weil der Schaden größer als angenommen war. Das war aber nicht weiter schlimm, da wir uns im und am Haus La Reserva sehr wohl gefühlt haben. Javier hat uns auch von und zur Werkstatt gefahren und hat uns sogar angeboten uns zum Strand oder zum Einkaufen zu fahren. Das nenne ich Gastfreundschaft. Die Werkstatt konnte das Auto tatsächlich reparieren, der Preis war schon fast lächerlich gering. In Deutschland hätte ich ca 1500€ bezahlt, dort nicht einmal 400€. Wir haben La Reserva nach 10 Tagen nur sehr schweren Herzens wieder verlassen. Normalerweise buchen wir ein Haus nie zweimal, da es überall auf der Welt noch so viele schöne Dinge zu entdecken gibt. Wir denken allerdings darüber nach, diese eiserne Regel zum ersten mal in unserem Leben zu brechen. Es war einfach zu schön in La Reserva und die Gastgeber sind so super herzlich und bemüht. Liebe Rosario, lieber Javier, vielen herzlichen Dank für diese wunderschöne Zeit und für alles was ihr für uns getan habt. Vielleicht sehen wir uns ja doch mal wieder :-) OUR RESPONSE: For us it is very satisfactory to read your comment, we are excited to know your sincere opinion. For us it is very, very important that all our guests, always feel accompanied whenever they need it. We try to do our job with great effort, doing things naturally and always with great enthusiasm. We love our work, and we feel very committed to the quality of service to our customers. It will be a pleasure to return to you again with us, and we will feel very lucky, if you decide for the first time to repeat the same place, for the enjoyment of your well-deserved vacation. Thank you very much, and tell you that you will always be welcome. We send a strong and sincere hug from this little corner of the Planet. Most sincerely Rosario and Javier

Elisa H Petite maison au paradis Left on Aug 31, 2018 for a stay in Aug 2018 Excellent séjour dans cette charmante maison traditionnelle andalouse. Située au bord d'un parc naturel, vous trouverez à 5min le départ d'une randonnée aquatique accessible à tous. Étant sur les hauteurs, cette maison vous offre une vue imprenable et du calme avec sa piscine très propre. De plus, le propriétaire est très sympathique, à l'écoute et très accueillant.

PamE26 Winchester, United Kingdom Fabulous sea views villa set in the mountains Left on Oct 23, 2019 for a stay in Oct 2019 Beautiful traditional Spanish villa, immaculately clean & complete with all the mod cons....dishwasher, washing machine, air con if needed, WiFi etc The stunning sea views are amazing. The villa is set up in the mountains right on the nature reserve...we were visited often by deer & squirrels...& saw the local goats along the paths most days. The peace & tranquility of the location was perfect, yet close enough to the towns with wonderful cafes & restaurants. The owners Javier & Rosario were kind enough to leave us a welcome pack of basic essentials & were very helpful with local information. They were available to be contacted at any time. We have already decided to return again next year???? OUR RESPONSE: We are very happy with your review, and is a pleasure again see you next year. You are a very good guest, and welcome always.
