Barbara Frame purchased this House in 2007
Why Barbara Frame chose Nerja
We first visited El Capistrano, Nerja in the 80s and returned on many occasions before buying the villa. We love: the layout of the house with its sunny outside spaces; the beautiful gardens of El Capistrano; the restaurant lined pedestrian streets of Nerja and the opportunities for hiking in the immediate area.
What makes this House unique
Las Palmas 144 is a semi-detached house situated on one of the garden-lined pedestrian streets of El Capistrano Village. It is only 5 minutes walk from the large swimming pool, restaurants and supermarket. We love sitting on the sunny south-facing terraces that overlook the sea to eat, relax or watch the sunsets over the Mediterranean If the light is right around sunset, you can sometimes see Africa. Casa de Las Palmas is a truly lovely house which has been much appreciated by its many visitors over the years.

El Capistrano Los Palmas
Excellent villa, great location in the lovely setting of El Capistrano Village. Recommend to everyone. Perfect villa, spacious, clean and comfortable. 2 mins from pool. A++++
what a beautiful find !!!
Nerja is always my favourite holiday destination but even more so this year. The house had everything you could wish for and we were so pleased with it.
Thanks for your kind words! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay!
A lovely villa, well maintained,spacious and very comfortably furnished.
We have been to Capistrano Village quite a few times over about 10 years, and would say that this is the nicest property we have stayed in. It is located in a very pretty and quiet part of the village with beautiful views, and all facilities i.e. shop, pool and restaurant are easy to get to. We had a lovely holiday, and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of Capistrano. The town is lively, and has a great atmosphere in the evenings. Walking on the Balcon to just look at the sea and stroll along and watch the entertainers and artists is great. So, we would say that Nerja is a really nice resort for a holiday, and this property is certainly one we would recommend.
Thanks for the kind remarks about the villa, El Capistrano and Nerja. We agree with them.
Our guests appreciate the comforts of the house, its outside space and terraces and its south facing aspect.
We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday.
Very Nice and beatiful appartement/ house
Casa Las Palmas - simply the best
We have stayed at Casa Las Palmas several times on our visits to Nerja. This property and El Capistrano village are beautifully maintained and in an ideal location. As previous reviewers have said the house is extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. It retains Spanish character and charm that is not often found in holiday properties. My husband has mobility problems but finds the walk down in to town comfortable. There is, however, a good bus service to and from the town to El Capistrano. The taxis are very reasonably priced for those late night return journeys after a relaxing time people watching with a glass of wine down in the main square in Nerja. The town has a large variety of good places to eat , drink and shop ( not necessarily in that order). There are lots of lovely places to visit and beautiful beaches to enjoy. We have loved our visits and really hope to return soon.
Beautiful well kept, well positioned villa
Superior equipped, clean spacious, well maintained villa. Lots of space, lovely private garden which is not overlooked. Lots and lots of little extras like a cool box and freezer blocks, portable brolly and chairs for Burriana Beach and even a sunshade for your hire car. Welcome pack in the fridge was handy as we arrived Sunday. Comfy bed, pillows and nice bedding. A lovely patio and twin balconies, one with stunning views. Everything went like clockwork. We never tire of Nerja, this was our third holiday and the best accommodation yet, would recommend to anyone.
The main beach, Burriana Beach, is just 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk. This is a lovely area with many good fish restaurants and bars. Depending on the season and weather, some water sports are available. There are other beaches in Nerja (see town map). A bus service links El Capistrano to Nerja town, every hour. There are also some more remote beaches along the coast to the east.
Malaga airport is approximately 35 miles from Nerja, and around 50 minutes driving on the motorway.
Car hire is not essential, but is recommended. There is car parking space close to the villa.
Nerja town centre is about 5 minutes drive or 25 minutes if walking.
The villa is a few minutes stroll away from the heart of the El Capistrano Village where you will find the well-stocked supermarket, restaurant, travel agent, car hire, cash point and public telephones. There are tennis courts and outdoor short bowling less than 10 minutes walk away from the villa. There are other supermarkets close by.
Places to visit include:
Nerja Caves - wonderful prehistoric caverns. They are the 3rd most visited monument in the whole of Spain.
Nerja town has many good restaurants and shops. It is still a very Spanish town but with a cosmopolitan air. It retains an old world charm with its old white washed houses and winding streets. The famous 'Balcon de Europa' is a wonderful viewing point above the sea. Sit here at one of the many sidewalk cafes and watch the world go by.
Granada - This magnificent city is approximately 1.5 hours drive away. Also accessible are: Seville (approx 3.5 hours); Cordoba (approx 3.5 hours); Marbella and Puerto Banus (approx 1.5 hours). Drive a few miles inland to find many of the area's, 'white villages'. Frigiliana is the closest - just 15 minutes driving brings you to this beautiful little Moorish village. Climb to the top through the winding streets for wonderful views across to the sea and mountains.
