Villas in Nerja

Holiday with us in Nerja

James Villa Holidays have 43 villas in Nerja

With a dramatic backdrop of the Sierra de Tejeda mountains, picturesque beaches plus countless rocky coves, Nerja is one of the most beautiful regions of Andalucía. Still retaining its charm and genuine Spanish character, the focal point of the town is a magnificent marble-paved promenade, El Balcon de Europa, which juts out on a rocky outcrop between two bays. Stroll here and enjoy stunning views, street entertainers and irresistible ice cream. Nearby, why not venture into the famous Cuevas de Nerja to see prehistoric cave paintings and the longest stalactites in the world – all 63 metres long. The majority of our properties enjoy tranquil locations off the beaten track, and are accessed by driving along scenic mountain roads.
