What Oliver loves…
- The panoramic views of the ‘white’ village of Frigiliana, voted 'the prettiest village in Andalucia', can be enjoyed from just about every part of the house and gardens
- The exquisite terraced garden offers endless opportunities for relaxing, dining and simply enjoying quality time with friends and family
- High ceilings of dark-wood beams and tiled floors throughout create a deluxe feel and allow for a plentiful flow of air, ideal for the warm summers’ days!
- Just a short walk from the beautiful town of Frigiliana and the Sierra Almijara National Park, Villa Loli is the dream holiday-home for those looking to escape the busier, more touristic coastline and retreat instead to what is truly the gem of the Costa del Sol!
On a flourishing hilltop outside the delightful village of Frigiliana, Villa Loli is a magnificent three-bedroom villa perfect for the discerning traveller in search of calm, a touch of luxury and breath-taking scenery.
A scenic road brings you to the villa, with space for two cars to park securely. Upon entering, you are welcomed by the bright, utterly majestic living room. A beautiful set of sofas and chairs surround a wooden coffee table, with a flat-screen TV and an open fireplace creating a warm atmosphere in the spacious room. The elegant dining room, with a classic wooden table for six, enjoys beautiful views over the surrounding landscape, all the way to the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea, and direct access to the garden. The fully-equipped, typically Spanish kitchen is to the far side of the dining room, with plenty of space for plenty of cooks, and also has direct access to the remarkable garden. A laundry room, bathroom and indeed an exclusive sauna complete the outstanding ground floor facilities.
On the first floor are all three of the fabulous bedrooms. These include the sublime master bedroom, complete with a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub, and two twin rooms which share an elegant bathroom with a walk-in shower. Wooden beams stretch across the ceiling, while powerful tones of deep purple and red complement the soft lighting and cream walls in each room. All three spacious and stylish rooms are tastefully decorated in a classic Spanish style, with wooden French windows through which you can enjoy the astonishing views of the Sierra Almijara National Park.
The private grounds are perhaps as beautiful as the sumptuous interiors, with 8000sqm of terraces to enjoy! The top terrace is accessed through the beautiful living and dining areas and features a dining table and outdoor kitchen, with a coal barbeque, creating the perfect space for an alfresco meal in the delightful weather. The lower terrace, on the other hand, is the spot for lounging, with an inviting private pool complete with Jacuzzi, flanked by a solarium of sunbeds! The garden is completed by a further patio, a small lawn, a casual seating area, fish pond, hammock and a small garden house for children to play in, all enveloped in a lush forest of trees, with avocado and mango orchards in the surrounding fields!
What you should know…
- There is a very steep, winding 15-minute road up to the villa, not for the faint hearted or the unconfident drivers!
- Beware the Spanish siesta, be sure to plan ahead so you don’t get caught out!
- The swimming pool isn’t fenced, take care if travelling with young children

Villa Loli is located on the outskirts of Frigiliana, a charming village once voted the most beautiful in all of Andalucía – and with its winding cobblestone streets, pristine whitewashed houses topped with Roman terracotta tiles and healthy flower pots adorning every windowsill, it’s no wonder why! Historic buildings and sites of Muslim and Christian origin are strewn throughout the cobbled streets, evidence of deeply multicultural history. And sitting just on the edge of the Sierra Almijara National Park, the surrounding landscape is sublime: thriving acres of avocado orchards and olive trees are nestled among luscious rolling hills and winding rivers as they slope towards the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea. In the quiet tranquillity, Frigiliana still manages to offer an array of restaurants, services and shops for those who prefer to travel on foot.
In the nearby town of Nerja, just a ten-minute drive away, you can enjoy fiestas and concerts, learn flamenco dancing or pick up some of the local wares at one of the many markets or boutique shops. Malaga, the nearest city at less than an hour away, is the largest city on the Costa del Sol and historically and culturally incredibly rich, putting ever more activities and amenities at your fingertips. As the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, the city is, of course, brimming with museums and art galleries, set among a beautiful cityscape of castles, cathedrals and theatres.
The Costa del Sol itself is largely peaceful and quiet, as although there is a large amount of tourism, largely for the fantastic beaches and warm climate (the average water temperature year-round is 18°C!), the tourists tend to stick to the much more developed south-western part. The region of Andalucía is a diverse one both culturally and in the landscape, where picturesque beaches, ancient cities and deserts meet the incredible Sierra Nevada mountain range, which includes both the most southerly ski resort in Europe and the highest point of continental Europe!
Malaga airport - Costa del Sol
This is truly the perfect family holiday-home, with a charming master-bedroom for the adults, and two decadent twin rooms that the kids will adore! The garden is ideal, with a huge private pool in which they can splash and play to their heart’s content, a small garden house for playtime, sun-loungers and a hammock for when they get tired, and plenty of private land for them to explore.
The local area is also very well suited to families, with the Tivoli World theme park and the Mijas and Torremolinos waterparks all under an hour’s drive away! There are also plenty of water sports opportunities nearby, including kayaking, dolphin watching, kite-surfing, parasailing, snorkelling, windsurfing and more.
For activities on land, you’re located in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara National Park, a rugged mountainous region that straddles the border between Granada and Malaga and is a superb hiking area and an ideal spot for climbers. There is a total of 13 signposted paths in the park, one of which starts on the doorstep in Frigiliana and winds its way to the Nerja caves at the Fuente del Esparto. Ideal for an active family day out!

I cannot say enough good things about this property. Gorgeous, gorgeous views of mountains, Frigiliana, and the sea in the distance. The house itself was beautiful and the landscaping was breathtaking and meticulously cared for. The drive to the villa from the highway became a colorful part of the stay. There are many sites to explore around the area and beach dining was a short drive away in Nerja.
This property is one of the most beautiful we have ever stayed at and our week there was heavenly. The house is gorgeous....very private, peaceful, elegant, with everything you could want. The house was immaculate, with luxurious, high end furnishings and linens, a beautiful pool, two terraces with views of the "white" village of Frigiliana (rated the most beautiful village on Costa del Sol) and the Mediterranean. It is a short drive up into the hills from the seaside town of Nerja, but feels worlds apart.
The exterior was beautiful as well, with two separate terraces where we ate our meals, a pool large enough to swim in with a jacuzzi, and an outdoor kitchen with bbq. There is also a large sauna in one of the three bathrooms. The house looked brand new, although we understood from the owners that they built it and lived in it for about eight years. The stonework, the tile work, the landscaping, everything was lovely and extremely well taken care of.
The owners were so gracious and really thought of everything to make our visit perfect. They also gave us suggestions for restaurants in Frigiliana, which is about a twenty minute drive and a lovely town with bougainvillea flowing over white walls, palm trees and cobblestone streets. The property is also surrounded by avocado and mango orchards, although it was not the season for their fruit when we were there (end of May). One thing that was not mentioned is that the road from Frigiliana to the property (about 15 minutes drive) is quite a "challenge" (that is narrow, windy and steep) and is not for the faint of heart.
As I'm writing this review, I only wish I were there now......really, the most perfect week!
