recommendations for 3 nights near nerja

We love nerja & are spending 2 weeks there in June 14 in Parador area. We have to depart our apt on Sat but flight home not until Tues. Looking for suggestions on places to stay for the 3 nights near Nerja (taxi-able) but somewhere with a different change of scene from Nerja town. Is there enough to do in Frigilliana for 3 nights? Not looking for anywhere too lively, just nice walks, restaurants etc. Not bothered about a beach. Thanks

I was going to suggest Málaga too - lots to see and do, maybe including a day-trip to Ronda? Easy train journey to the airport too.

I'd vote for Málaga too. Frigiliana is nice, but easily accessible from Nerja on a day trip. There's a good local bus service or you could walk up the river.

Málaga has everything, and an easy trip by train to the airport.

Málaga definitely.

There are a lot of people who, like you, have come many times to Costa del Sol but seldom stopped in Málaga. It is worth, you won't regret.

Anywhere in the centre is fine as Málaga centre is compact and walkable. The Ibis is popular for those on a budget (and very close to the train for the airport), the Molino Lario is a lovely hotel.

Don't miss Atarazanas covered market for an incredible food experience, and do have the courage to plunge into some of the more standard traditional bars rather than just the touristy ones in the Old Town (although saying that, you really shouldn't miss Casa Antigua LOL).
