“Exceeded all expectations.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Having never felt the need to leave a review before, we felt that we should share our stay at La Reserva with everyone, as it was so wonderful.

From the first enquiry made through TripAdvisor, we received excellent service from Javier and Rosario. They responded to our every question and even booked a rental car for us, that was waiting for us at the airport.
When we forgot our electric adapter, we asked Javier where to buy, but within an hour he brought one to us.

The fridge was stocked with groceries on our arrival, which meant that we could relax as soon as we arrived.
The house was equipped with everything we could need, from books to a blender, from a barbecue to a bucket and spade for the children.
The pool was great to cool off after sunbathing on the loungers.

The nearest beach was a 10-15 minute drive away at Nerja, where there is shopping and the supermarket. The pretty village of Fragiliana is on the other side of the valley and is well worth a visit.

We had the best time so much so that we will be returning as soon as possible.

“Lovely house with a stunning view”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a great welcome by the the owners Rosario and Javier who guided us to the house from our meeting point. We felt at home straight away, the owners arranged for a cot and a baby chair free of charge and even provided a welcome package.

The house is situated on a hill (with a private road) and the national park is straight above the house. Given the location it takes some effort to get there (car with a strong engine is a plus), however the view and privacy of the house more than compensated for this. The house itself is equipped with everything you will need, there is a swimming pool plus a large bbq.

If you are looking for a house with privacy, a stunning view, all the comfort you need, this is the place to be!

“An absolutely beautiful villa with stunning views.”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just come back from a lovely week away. Villa La Reserva in Frigillana is by far the most beautiful and picturesque place we have ever stayed, The owners Javier and Rosario are so friendly and welcoming and very attentive to the needs of our family. The welcome food pack was such a lovely surprise and the villa is so well equipped.

Our two boys aged 5 and 7 loved the swimming pool and they said that it was the best family holiday that we have ever had. We can't wait to return again soon.

“Great house with fantastic views”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

A lovely place, with lovely views of the countryside and the sea. Situated in an olive grove. The house is on the edge of the park. You walk in the park for great short or long walks. And in 10 minutes by car in Nerja. Javier and Rosala very welcoming. The house is fully equipped. The pool is a great place to enjoy the tranquility and the wonderful smells of nature. We definitely come back soon

“Position, position, position”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

If you want a holiday away from the madding crowds, this is for you. Once you negotiate the winding roads, you sit on the top of the hill, surrounded by olives and avocados, looking across the valley to people tending their crops and animals, and all you hear is bird song or even silence, except a few walkers en route to the hills. Javier and Rosario are exceptional owners, and nothing is too much trouble, to the extent they have now become friends, we have been there so often!! Get used to the drive there, don't be afraid, it is easy when you know how, and it will be worth it!!!!

“Fabulous house with amazing views”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This was our first trip to Spain and our first holiday abroad for a number of years and we cannot wait to go back. The house was immaculate with all the things you would expect and more. The views were amazing, we did not get bored by them at all. We wanted a peaceful relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we got with the added bonus of watching Eagles souring overhead and deer galloping through the trees. You are surrounded by pine, olive and fruit trees with a mountain and sea view as a back drop "stunning". Javier and Rosario were really helpful both in the booking process and during our stay. They are and defiantly should be very proud of the standard of accommodation they offer for rental.

We will defiantly do a return visit.

“Wow ..... what a view!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Fantastic location and a super holiday home for 4. The views from La Reserva were absolutely stunning, with views down the ravine, across to the sea in one direction and towards the town of Frigiliana the other way - seeing it in its glory on the top of the hill. We could have stayed sitting on the 'veranda' for hours just looking at the views.
Owners were fantastic.......meeting us part way from the airport to make sure we found the house. Also called in to change the linen and sort out the pool regularly. Javier and Rosario were able to speak English well, so we could have good conversations with them and by the end of the holiday we felt we got to know them quite well.
We are thinking about how we could visit one of the owner's villas again in the future.
