Nestled just a short drive from the pretty village of Frigiliana and surrounded by tranquil countryside and olive groves, this pretty typical cortijo style villa is the ideal choice for guests seeking a taste of rural Spain. The interior offers cosy and well furnished accommodation and provides a relaxing setting for an enjoyable holiday. The lounge/diner leads out to a covered terrace and barbecue area where magnificent views of the surrounding gardens and countryside can be enjoyed whilst dining al fresco.
“This place is just amazing!!! You need a car and a want for a place in the middle of nowhere and desire for absolute tranquility and you will be bowled over. The Villa is extremely well equipped and the maintenance team including "Antonio" could not do enough to make our stay perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone as long as you are not looking for something with easy walking access to shops and bars. A fantastic holiday !!! We will be back ...”
Just what we wanted,privacy and relative isolation.

Villa was very nice, location was great for us. The drive to the villa itself is off road for quarter of a mile, but its worth it when you arrive. Really enjoyed the holiday.

villa in very peaceful place, with beautiful views, but VERY STEEP tracks to access it & you do need a powerful car! Frigiliana lovely village & Nerja close for larger town.

We had a wonderful holiday and throughly enjoyed our time. It was lovely having the villa (and its pool) to come back to after days out.

Only comment or suggestion - We were advised to upgrade our car from the one provided with the booking by the rental company. This turned out to be good advice as access to the villa is very steep and rugged. We enjoyed the holiday very much and were sad to leave La Era. Even the villa owner visited use on a couple of occasions, one of his visits after a thunder storm to check that everything was OK.

A holiday you can rely on. Good standards throughout ie. villas and organisation. A return customer loyalty bonus would be appreciated.
Mr Carrick, September 2007
Overall, a lovely holiday - again, this is the third time we have used JVH, and will probably use again (other plans allowing). The Villa was quiet, peaceful, well located, and all run smoothly. Well done!

This villa is absolutely delightful - current reviews don't do it justice. It is very peaceful, especially at night. The swimming pool is very sheltered and not overlooked. The villa is close enough to a restaurant to walk (10 minutes - though the hills are fierce!) and in fact we walked into Frigiliana each day - about 30 minutes each way. The villa was spotless when we arrived. The owner dropped in each day to check up that we were ok, but wasn't intrusive. We had an absolutely delightful holiday, slept like babies and came home very relaxed.

Very clean and well kept villa with beautiful views of the mountains in a quiet location. Exciting drive to reach it down narrow, steep tracks. Pool was a lovely temperature but our youngest (tall 8 year old) couldn't stand up in it so not ideal for small children. Lovely outdoor area with a barbecue and dining/ sitting area. Air con in the bedrooms was great.

Excellent surroundings. Peaceful and serene. Villa is great value for money. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet,relaxing holiday. The owner is on hand every day to check if there are any problems, we had none. Wi fi reception is very good. I would book again.

The villa was all we hoped it would be. It is in a peaceful location very quiet and ideal if you are looking to get away from it all. Fabulous views surround the villa, lemon trees grow just by the villa perfect to add to your gin and tonic in the evening. I would highly recommend La Era as a great base. You can be in the beautiful town of Frigiliana a 10 minute drive away, where there are lots of restaurants to choose from and quaint cobbled streets to walk through. This town is said to be one of Spain's most beautiful and it's easy to see why.

Hairy drive but location well worth it. Lovely villa. Quiet, beautiful scenery and amazing views of surrounding hills and mountains. Great place to chill and wind down.
