“Excellent luxurious villa well placed for sun and beach!”
Reviewed November 7, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This villa can easily accommodate 8 people it has 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It is tastefully decorated with a well equipped kitchen. The upstairs master bedroom has a balcony which is an excellent sun trap for those die hard sun worshippers!
We were out in the last week of October the weather was in the mid to high 20's. We could not get the kids out of the heated pool even at 9pm at night! Pool has lilos and plenty of toys to keep the kids amused. If the kids were not in the pool they were watching Sky Sports or a movie from the well stocked family collection of DVDs.
We made use of the Provençal BBQ on a couple of the nights.
Nerja is only a short taxi ride away which only cost 8 euros each way. For the more adventurous Nerja is 15 minutes by foot on a well lit beach path.
We had a wonderful time in Nerja and the experience was enhanced by this luxurious villa. We will certainly be re visiting.

“Great villa, excellent location”

We stayed here the first week of August. There are 5 of us, three adults and two adult sized teenagers, there was plenty of room for all us. The villa has excellent facilities, the pool is great, the bedrooms and bathrooms, lounge and kitchen are spotlessl6 clean, modern and have ample room. The sky tv was an added bonus especially for watching England win the Ashes. It was exceptionally hot in our week in Nerja and although the master bedroom had an excellent air con unit which created fridge like conditions, this was lacking in other rooms. The balcony off of the master bedroom is fantastic and a lovely place to enjoy the sunset and a glass of vino or a cup of tea and watch the sun rise. Overall an excellent place to stay!

“Total Relaxation in a perfect setting.”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed in El Paso 12 in July 2015. We used Nerja Taxis to transfer from Malaga Airport to Punta Lara and would certainly recommend them. Arriving late at night a little tired we found the instructions given to locate and access the villa very easy to follow and once in we were not disappointed in any way, What a lovely villa.
El Paso 12 is located in a quiet street but the local beach is just a short walk away. There is a wonderful large, front facing balcony with great Mountain views and is perfect for late evening sunbathing. Nerja is just a short bus or taxi ride away and well worth a few visits. We also visited the Nerja caves and had a late evening meal in the Moorish village of Frigliana.
However, the main aim of our holiday was to relax. El Paso 12 is perfect for that. Well equipped with a wonderful pool, pool furniture and inflatables. We ate outside on the verandah table and chairs in the wonderful Spanish heat. The Villa itself has everything you need for a very relaxing family holiday. The whole family loved it and we hope to return again soon.

We stayed at the villa in March with our 3 children and loved it so much we are returning in August. The villa is an excellent size for a large family it's extremely well maintained and everything from the beach towels to the cutlery is of a very high standard. The location is fantastic not too far from nerja town with excellent views from the large balcony. Jacky the owner is very helpful.

Stunning location in a quiet residential estate next to an avocado plantation with panoramic views over the Sierra Aljimara Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, El Paso 12 provides every ingredient for a luxurious family holiday. Four bedrooms with three luxuriously appointed bathrooms and a beautiful balcony with the most comfortable rattan armchairs I have ever experienced! The owners even provide Sky Sports as a bonus for us guys, aircon and a DVD collection for all the family. The kids spent most of the day in the pool and thoroughly enjoyed the lilos provided. Six luxury sunbeds and mattresses guaranteed siesta time and my wife reckoned the kitchen was kitted out better than our own home! They even provide a Provencal BBQ under the shade of the palm trees - perfect combination with a chilled beer from the fridge! In short, we shall return next year, because El Paso 12 was a "true home from home" and Nerja is the most delightful Spanish town we have ever visited, fabulous bars and restaurants to suit every taste. We visited the famous Caves of Nerja and Frigliana, a Moorish mountain village perched high up in the Sierra Aljimara Mountains and drove to Granada to visit the Alhambra Palace and to Cordoba to visit the Spanish Riding School for a spectacular performance. El Paso 12 is without doubt an oasis of tranquility, but gave us the most fabulous holiday with the kids. Thank you Jacky!

Had a lovely week at this beautifully decorated and well equipped villa. Perfectly situated for getting around but in a very quiet location - just what you need for relaxing by the pool. The balcony from the main bedroom overlooks the pool and has possibly the most comfortable chairs ever! Great for a drink before dinner. Only 10 minutes or so by taxi into town for lots of restaurants and shopping. Loved it!
