Casa Morango is a large family home in the Moorish center of frigiliana. Three bedrooms, this house sleeps 5 comfortably 6 sharing the 3/4 bed in bedroom 3 (e.g. Gran and child).
If you want to spend time in the village and emerge yourself in the Moorish heritage, this is a perfect location. Shops, bars and restaurants are all only a short walk from your front door, but on those days you want to stay at home, the shaded back terrace, the reception area on the ground floor or the roof terrace, with outstanding 360° views all offer different benefits, the later, the roof terrace: private, peaceful and an incredible suntrap for just lazing and taking the rays.
Easy access, it’s a 15 minute (max) drive down to Nerja, with its beaches, promenades, shops, bars and the famous Nerja Caves. Although no parking by the house, car access is allowed, making loading and unloading family, cases or shopping easily manageable.
Casa Morango was for many years, the village heladería (ice cream shop) but the family have moved in different directions and the recent refurbishment has been stylishly completed to provide comfortable accommodation with all the modern facilities required to make your stay enjoyable.
This house sits on 4 levels in total, the stairs were remodeled so they are easy to climb, no traditionally typical large Spanish steps.
The villa is well situated on the corner of Calle Real and Callejon de Agua, it’s a 4-6 minute stroll through the botanic gardens to the municipal (almost Olympic) swimming pool, or down to the circumnavigation, with plenty of free parking and then left or right towards the sea or the mountains. The world’s your oyster! Andalusia at it’s best. Internationally renowned for beauty, frigiliana village is your base, the beaches 15 mins drive, (€1 hop on bus) or the mountains and exploration of the incredible Andalucian country side starts only 10 minutes in the other direction.
The house accommodation; entrance, on the ground floor, where was the heledaria, the owners have made a lovely job converting this space as a meeting / eating / picnic / greeting area.
With the front door open, you’ll secure many jealous views as those struggling in the afternoon sun, walk past, searching for; shade, an ice-cream, cold drink, music and a great location to relax and enjoy.
Up the first stairs, to living area; sofa, chairs, LCD TV, free WiFi, chrome cast, so you can watch TV back home, if you like, via android, iPhone, PC or whatever?
To the front, el comador (dining room) and la cocina (kitchen) are both large open spaces… the photo of the kitchen is a bit shaded, but you’ll see plenty cupboard space, plenty work surface, newly equipped microwave, ceramic hob, fridge freezer, cafe gusto, kettle etc. etc.
There is also a shower room on this floor, additional to the family bathroom, a real must when the whole family wants to get showered changed and ready all at the same time.
Off the dining area, there’s a small front terrace overlooking Calle Real, for me a great place to sit with a drink and watch people (anonymously) as they pass by.
Climb the next stairs and you’re at the bedroom level, one double (with air conditioning) one 3/4 bed (comfy for one) with private terrace and twin singles in bedroom 3. All rooms are spotlessly clean, the owner of this house is almost obsessive about cleaning, as many Spanish ladies are. It’s a cultural thing! Also on this floor, family bathroom, again a shower, but a big space, with hairdryer, shelves, mirrors.. it’s all there.
At the top of the stairs, before the bedrooms, is a utility room, with an antique Spanish butler sink, why would you want to know? because at the back of the utility is a door with access to the roof terrace, approx 35 square meters of uninterrupted sun soaking privacy. Well equipped: loungers, umbrellas, sink, barbecue and food prep area, table and chairs and obviously those panoramic views, how fantastic?
