Overview of this villa
Casa Celia is a wonderful country house set in a young olive grove only four kilometres, 2.5 miles from Frigiliana which is easy to get to town.
With five bedrooms and two bathrooms, this is one of our largest properties. Ideal for a larger family or a group of friends, but still intimate. Graceful arches and an open stone hearth adorn this villa. Cheque sienna and white ceramic floors all help create a characterful living-dining room full of light. Seasoned wood makes the rustic open plan kitchen as attractive as it is practical.
The accommodation is divided over two floors so you can settle kids and bot disturb them, whist still partying.
Enter directly into the lounge / dining room, to the south are stairs down to 3 bedrooms. #3 (double), #4 (single) and #5 (single) and the second family bathroom and second lounge area. Back upstairs and the open plan salon with European satellite TV, American style kitchen area which is fully equipped and bedrooms #1 (double), #2 (twin) and master family bathroom. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are ideal for those with less mobility. The washing machine is situated in a separate laundry room.
Air-conditioning in both lounges, main floor & lower floor
As the villa is build on a hill, off the main salon, to the east is another private terrace, with great drop down shaded canopy, seating for 4 and panoramic views towards Caracolas, Torrox and Competa. There’s a fabulous roof terrace with panoramic sea and mountain views, more than the norm, these are fabulous. The swimming pool is inviting and just under 20 by 10 feet. Surrounded by a delightful patio dotted with pots of pink geraniums. The patio offers a pleasant dining spot for an indulgent lunch. Anyone for, fresh caught fish and local muscatel wine?
In Frigiliana village (quintessentially Andalusian) there are splendid tapas bars and a variety of restaurants serving traditional Andalusian and more international fare. The winding cobbled streets are a delight, bubbling with history and village chatter and brimming with hand-made ceramics, rugs and the freshest local produce. Frigiliana is a top-notch example of the ‘pueblo blanco’, having been voted ‘prettiest village in Andalucia’ by the Spanish tourist board. Clinging to a hillside with the peaks of the Sierra Almijara as a backdrop, it’s a classic combination of white-washed, bougainvillea draped houses, narrow streets and small, shady plazas. For gifts, there are many little shops selling locally produced ceramics, hand painted in vibrant colours.
The busy coastal resort of Nerja offers a complete contrast (just 9 kilometers away). Casa Celia is ideally situated for exploring the pretty pueblos of the Axarquía or mystical Granada.
Nerja itself is ideal if you feel like a day at the beach, with several good stretches of sand. It’s also a fun place to spend an evening, with the ‘Balcon de Europa’ providing a promenade for an early evening stroll. There are many bars and restaurants serving everything from paella to pizza. As for local sightseeing, don’t miss the Nerja Caves, an amazing underground world of colourful rock formations. The huge cavern is used as an auditorium for the annual International Festival of Music and Dance.
The villa is spacious and well equipped, especially with outside dining areas (roof terrace, poolside and the bbq under the avocado trees). The views are stunning as are the sunsets from the roof terrace. Easy to jump into the cars and drive to Nerja, a lovely, low rise resort with loads of character (and a great beach bar on burriana beach where they do a fab paella!).
