Located in an elevated position in Frigiliana and offering extensive views across the valley with Nerja and the coastline to the South and the stunning background of the Andalucian mountains to the North, this amazing Frigiliana villa can really boast one of the most enviable places. Shops, bars & restaurants are within a short drive. The guests can either make use of the regular bus service or, for the more adventurous, take a walk along the river bed to the bustling town of Nerja and stunning village of Frigiliana.
This cosy detached Frigiliana villa, dating back to 1975, has been meticulously maintained and improved by the owners, Javier and Rosario. The most recent refurbishment, completed in 2010, provides a spacious open plan living and dining area with patio doors leading onto the extensive terrace with stunning views. The thoughtful layout of the terrace offers both shaded and sunbathing areas along with a purpose-built brick barbecue. Typical of the owners, Javier & Rosario have insisted on preserving a 70 year old Carob (Algarrobo) tree which has been incorporated into the design and stands tall within the Frigiliana property, providing valuable shade to the terrace.
Throughout the Frigiliana villa are found a number of examples of handmade items of natural materials, skillfully produced by local craftsmen. From the clay plant pots to the hand painted wall tiles you will really appreciate the close attention to every detail. The Frigiliana villa is located in the area known as Cortijos San Rafael, between the towns of Nerja and Frigiliana in the Axarquia (east coast of Malaga). It is easily accessible, only 45 minutes drive from Malaga airport and about 300 metres from the MA-5105 road. The house, #2, Mirador de los Almachares, is accessible via the “Camino de la Maquinilla”.
This Frigiliana villa entrance is through a large courtyard (paved with handmade clay bricks) filled with pots and a small garden on the right. Through its wooden door (painted in ultramarine blue like the windows of the house, giving a Mediterranean character to the Frigiliana villa), you enter the main level where you will find the dining room, kitchen, living room, bathroom and master bedroom.
The dining area, with a table and four chairs, overlooks the courtyard. In the living room you will find a comfortable sofa, two convenient and comfortable armchairs, a coffee table and an handmade entertainment unit with a TV (English / Spanish / German / French etc. channels), DVD, radio and CD player (with an assortment of DVDs and CDs). From this room, where there is also a wood stove, through the patio door, you will find a large terrace covered with a pergola overlooking the sea, the country and the mountains. This terrace is wonderful in summer and winter and has a table, four chairs and a purpose-built brick barbecue.
The sunny master bedroom on the first floor (with a double bed, wardrobe and bedside tables), has a special feel. The original headboard was designed and made by a local artist using materials such as hand-forged iron, wood and stone. This bedroom gets plenty of light through the glass door, with a view of the huge terrace overlooking the main house where there is an ancient Algarrobo (Carob, a protected native tree from the Frigiliana area).
From the living room down a staircase is the newly constructed second bedroom with two single beds, wardrobe, bedside table and bookcase (with many Spanish and English books). This bedroom has its own pretty en-suite bathroom (with shower, sink and toilet) with a view of the back of the property. The practical, well equipped kitchen has all modern day conveniences including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, mini oven/microwave, butane gas hob, electric kettle, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, extractor hood, fire detector, toaster, juicer and everything you need for your holiday pleasure.
The newly remodeled family bathroom on the main floor is decorated with hand-painted tiles and has a wash basin, large walk-in shower with natural light flooding through glass block detailing. A hair dryer is also provided. The water is heated by solar panels. The washing machine is in an annex off the house near the stairs to the upper terrace and the swimming pool.
The pool was recently equipped with a new ecological water purification system, eliminating the need for chlorine, which is better for the guests and the environment. It is approximately 6’ long by 3’ deep (1.4/ 1.8 metres.) At the end of the pool, you will see a hand cut mosaic made by a local artist, the theme of which is a particularly striking sun. There are chaise-longues with cushions, a table, four chairs and a large sunshade.
The Frigiliana villa Dachita has air conditioning and heating, a secure broadband Internet connection (WIFI-DSL) free of charge, and a parking space for our guests’ private use.
Lovely holiday in Dachita Left on May 27, 2012 for a stay in Jun 2011 We have stayed in Dachita Frigiliana in both 2010 and 2011, and we will be back in june 2012 We love to stay in the quiet facility of Dachita. Lovely pool on the roof terace with a wonderful view over the ocean and Nerja. We really enjoy the warm evenings on the balcony with the beautiful lights of Nerja. Frigiliana nearby is a very nice village with all the lovely and charming houses. We love to stay here, and we look forward to be back year after year. Kind regards Marianne and John from Silkeborg Demark
Billsmom What a fabulous place! Left on May 28, 2012 for a stay in Aug 2011 We're about to go back for a fourth time to this wonderful haven. Javier, Rosario and their children are discreet but very welcoming hosts. Quiet but, not too quiet. Small but, not too small. Just about right if you want a get away from it all holiday that's not too far from family oriented nightlife and great beaches.
David W Örebro, Sweden A perfect place to relax Left on Jun 1, 2012 for a stay in Apr 2010 We like this place!My wife says it is like coming home! Immaculate and very cosy! Lovely pool up on the roof, lovely terrace both with stunning views of the mountains and the sea. Within walking distance to Frigiliana or just 5 minutes by car to both there and also down to Nerja with shops, beaches etc.. Peaceful but not too peaceful, and close to the village and the life of Nerja. Perfect - we will return!
Virge P It was best holiday in my life! Left on Jul 6, 2012 for a stay in Mar 2012 Dears Rosario and Javier! We spent a wonderful holiday within 10 days in Dachita in March 2012. We were very-very sad to leave the Spain. Specially we still miss your beautiful house - Dachita. We liked this house so much! In the house was all the necessary for enjoyable life. Dachita is very homelike and cosiness house. It was exactly for us - for 4 friends. I can say, that it was my best holiday in my life. I am at home now, but may soul is in Spain still. We like Frigiliana so much. It is a very beautiful place. Rosario and Javier, you are very-very lovely and friendly. It was very nice to meet you. I hope to meet you again and spend the holiday in Dachita. Maybe next year... We are very happy for beautiful holiday! Thank you so much! Virge, Olga, Helle and Kalle
Frances B Sonoma A comfortable cottage in a great location Left on Sep 10, 2012 for a stay in Jul 2011 1 people found this review helpful Dachita is very well appointed with everything that you could want for a comfortable, happy vacation in the sun. The rooftop swimming pool is a surprise and the outdoor areas are well furnished with BBQ, just right for spending those long lazy evenings after a day in the sun. The two pretty bathrooms are attractively tiled and the bedrooms are comfortable. Javier and Rosario are wonderful, caring hosts who give great attention to detail.
raal57 london Utterly charming place Left on Oct 11, 2012 for a stay in Sep 2012 2 people found this review helpful We stayed here with our baby and her grand parents after another villa we had hired elsewhere fell through and we couldn't have been luckier. This is a real find for the price range, located on a hill side with beautiful uninterrupted views, quirky and cosy yet comfortable and spacious on the inside with a part shade part sun deck terrace and a rooftop pool that's big and deep enough to have a good soak and sunbathe. We had a good explore of the surrounding area and Frigiliana is definitely one of the highlights just up the hill. Nerja a short drive away has great beaches and is relatively unspoiled for a resort town. The villa is on a quite road and is a fantastic place to enjoy quiet private seclusion. It's obvious that the owners take a real pride in what they do and that it's important to them that you enjoy your stay which if you have any sense you will. They have struck a great balance of being friendly whilst leaving you to your own devices and when we needed some help unrelated to the villa Javier went out of his way to help us, putting us in touch with a friend in the village that came to our aid. Great property, great location, great hospitality. I wouldn't have changed anything about my stay here and I hope to go back one day. Thanks Javier!
CordylineWimbledon Wimbledon A wonderful well tended villa in a lovely location with great showers Left on Oct 16, 2012 for a stay in Oct 2012 I have stayed in two of Javier and Rosario's villas which are situated just outside the picturesque village of Frigiliana. Both of my stays have been excellent (I also stayed in La Reserva in June 12). Javier and Rosario go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Their villas are spotlessly clean and well equipped with free wifi, satelite TV, DVD player, CD player, hairdryer etc, etc. Their welcome pack is second to none: wine, beer, bread, fruit, milk, orange juice, pate, cold meat, chocolate mouse, pastries - I could go on! Dachita has two bedrooms & two bathrooms - a double bedroom on the main floor and a very sweet twin room with en suite shower room downstairs. All are equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave/oven. Views are to die for. Dachita has a wonderful view over the mountains and the sea. It has a small but beautifully clean pool and all towels are provided. There are two terraces, a barbecue and outside dining facilities. There is a very quiet cul de sac road that runs behind. It isn't busy at all but if you want to really get away from it all and everyone then La Reserva is the place for you. Javier and Rosario are delightful - they leave you alone to relax and unwind but are there like a shot if you need anything at all. Really impressive. We will be back next year (to La Reserva).
natttix Berlin, Germany Rundum wohlfühlen zwischen Bergen und Meer, Erholung vom Feinsten Left on Apr 16, 2013 for a stay in Mar 2013 Zuerst: uneingeschränkte Empfehlung - die Dachita von Javier und seiner Frau Rosario! Neun Tage optimale Erholung für vier erschöpfte Urlauber zwischen dem sehenswerten weißen Bergdorf Frigiliana, zu dem das Ferienhaus gehört, und dem größeren Touristenort Nerja am Meer. Bei der Ankunft war schon für alles gesorgt, was man für die kulinarische Erstausstattung benötigt, so dass der Urlaub sofort beginnen konnte. Die Eigentümer hatten schnell das Haus, die beiden Terrassen und den pool gezeigt, ausgesprochen freundlich und unaufdringlich. In den nächsten Tagen erwies sich die Dachita als optimal ausgestattet: wir vermissten kein einziges Küchenutensil (nicht einmal die Knoblauchpresse), für die kühlen Nächte waren Decken und alternative nordeuropäische Kissen da, gute Polster für die Sonnenliegen und -Stühle, Tabs für die Spülmaschine - einfach alles da! Tipps für Wanderungen in die umliegende Berglandschaft gab es bei Javier, sofortige Hilfe, wenn eine Frage auftauchte, ebenso. Kommunikation auf Englisch ohne Probleme, die Geräte und Lampen funktionierten alle. Frigiliana ist zu Fuß in 30 Minuten erreichbar (viele sehr gute Restaurants!), Nerja mit dem Auto in 10 Minuten. Die Dachita liegt ruhig am Hang eines Flusstals, innerhalb einer kleinen Siedlung, fantastischer Blick durch Zypressen in die Berge und zum Meer hinunter. Die untere Terrasse ist teilweise mit einem Rohrdach beschattet, teilweise frei, Grillmöglichkeit in einer Ecke. Oben ist der pool, sehr sauber und groß genug. Im Haus ist alles freundlich eingerichtet, ein bisschen Kunst dabei, gemütlich und groß genug, dass sich vier Erwachsene wohl fühlen können. Einzig und allein der Parkplatz neben dem Haus ist durch das Gefälle der engen Gasse nicht ganz einfach zu benutzen. Wir würden jederzeit mit Vergnügen wieder dort wohnen und danken Javier und Rosario sehr für ihre Gastfreundschaft und ihre Basis für einen perfekten Urlaub!
Emily G Medstead, England, United Kingdom Relaxing, beautiful and welcoming holiday home Left on Apr 29, 2013 for a stay in Apr 2013 We stayed for a week in April 203 at this lovely place. When we arrived we were greeted with wonderful hospitality and a beautiful house. Javier and Rosario have thought of everything and they have made Dachita a wonderful place to recharge, relax and enjoy the Spanish sunshine. The views from the terrace are amazing and it's only ten minutes drive to the beach. We would thoroughly recommend it for anyone wishing to book a relaxing break. OUR RESPONSE: Dear family: Thank you very much for your review. Is a pleasure for us, know you enjoy here in our Dachita. You are welcome always, and thank you for choose us. Take care and see you soon. Rosario and Javier
Juliehump Maidenhead, United Kingdom Perfect location and beautiful place to stay Left on May 31, 2013 for a stay in May 2013 We have just returned from a very relaxing week staying at this property - beautiful location, 10 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes into Frigliana village by car. The accommodation is extremely well equipped and very comfortable and having arrived late afternoon the welcome pack of wine, water, bread, juice etc was very welcome! The views are spectacular and it is very quiet with only the bird song disturbing the peace. The only slight disappointment was the size of the pool, which I think is slightly misleading in the pictures as it is dipping size only not swimming size. However it was still very welcome to cool off from quite hot days in May. Many thanks for a lovely stay.
PaulVicM Belfast, United Kingdom Relaxing week at Villa Dachita Left on Jul 27, 2013 for a stay in Jun 2013 We spent a week at Villa Dachita in June, having booked directly with Javier and Rosario. Directions provided to the Villa were detailed and accurate, and Javier was quick and responsive to questions by email. The villa is situated half way up the road from Nerja to Frigiliana, with views out over the Nerja valley and the sea. A small parking space is situated directly below the villa on a steep road - very large rental vehicles might struggle. It is important to note that the villa is on a hill, and there are steepish outdoor steps to get to the swimming pool, so it may not be suitable for those with mobility issues. That said, I was 6 months pregnant when we were there and I had no problems! Inside the villa was very clean and tidy. A handy welcome pack with ham, eggs, bread, croissants, juice, bottle of wine was provided, and the kitchen has all necessary items. The bathroom is a good size and best of all the shower is hot and powerful. The views from the terrace are stunning. The swimming pool is situated on a separate roof terrace, which felt private and sheltered. The area that the villa is in is very quiet and peaceful, yet only a 5 minute drive from either Nerja or Frigiliana. On a few days during our stay, a dense sea mist came in over Nerja, and we sat smugly in the sunshine - if we were visiting the area again I would make sure was at a similar elevation above sea level as it must have ruined a few holidays. The villa has all the main English TV channels plus CD player and plenty of CDs and books. The free wifi has a strong signal and we were both able to use it while relaxing by the pool. Javier is a fabulous host - he called in briefly at the beginning of our stay to check all was well, and provided us with a few mobile numbers should we need any assistance. We felt secure in the knowledge he was available if we needed him, but he lets his guests have the privacy they desire. This was our second trip to the area. Frigiliana is a lovely little village with plenty of restaurants and little shops to wander around. Granada is less than an hour and a half away, and there are lots of beaches within a short drive. We would thoroughly recommend this villa to couples or small families.Thanks Javier! OUR RESPONSE: Thank you very much for all. We are very happy see you here soon, with your baby. Take care all time- Rosario, Javier and childrens PS: in our web site we inform about the steeps for the pool. Hope our guest understand is no suitable for persons with discapacity
Josean O Casita acogedora y dueños encantadores Left on Jul 31, 2013 for a stay in Jul 2013 Nuestra opinión sobre la casa la hemos reflejado en la valoración, pero querríamos destacar la amabilidad y hospitalidad los propietarios. Llegamos un domingo por la tarde y nos habían dejado algo para cenar y desayunar al día siguiente. Una semana como para repetir. Muchas gracias Rosario y Javier. NUESTRA RESPUESTA: Queridos amigos: Eskerrik asko por haber optado disfrutar vuestras vacaciones con nosotros. Ha sido todo un placer teneros como clientes y ahora como amigos. Nuestras casas siempre estarán abiertas a vosotros y vuestros seres más queridos. Nos encantaría volver a teneros por aquí. Siempre seréis bienvenidos / ongui etorrry. Agur y van abrazos sinceros Rosario, Javier y familia
Peter H Coventry, United Kingdom Perfect place to unwind Left on Jan 2, 2014 for a stay in Sep 2013 This was our third visit to Dachita and, as always, we felt totally relaxed from the minute we arrived. We really enjoy our stays in this lovely little villa (which is so cosy and full of character), and never want to leave. Although conveniently located just off the main road between Nerja and Frigiliana it still feels really tranquil and "away from it all" The villa is spotlessly clean and really well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. Rosario and Javier also provide a really generous welcome pack, which definitely goes beyond "the basics". The views from the terrace and the rooftop pool are fantastic - look out for the eagles above the mountains! Rosario and Javier are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and we know they are just a 'phone call away should we need them. Would thoroughly recommend, and are really looking forward to returning - soon, we hope! Thanks Rosario and Javier for our wonderful holidays. OUR RESPONSE: Dear Peter and Ivonne: Same always, you are welcome in our houses. Is a pleasure see you here every year, and for us is the best our guest enjoy with us.
Helen D Just right Left on Jan 13, 2014 for a stay in Jan 2014 2 people found this review helpful Dachita was just right. It´s pretty and quiet, with all the amenities you could want. A good size house with a rooftop pool for warmer weather, a lovely outside terrace, comfortable beds and showers etc. Its also a nice walk to Frigiliana via La Molineta, close to Nerja, and within easy reach of the airport in Malaga. We took walks up into the mountains behind Frigiliana, which are very beautiful as is the town. I got some writing done as well. We mostly cooked at Dachita but also went out a couple of times and the food was great. Javier and Rosario are excellent hosts respecting privacy but at the same time attentive, as the preparations for our arrival showed. The house was squeaky clean and we even had a welcome package including food and a lovely bottle of wine. My parents had stayed, years back, in the house in front which is also belongs to J and R. Our hosts still remember my parents and have sent them Christmas cards yearly from Spain! Lovely human beings. OUR RESPONSE: Queridos amigos: Gracias por vuestro bonito y cálido mensaje. Nos sentimos muy bien después de tantos años, volver a tenerte de nuevo por aquí. Los [--] siempre son bienvenidos. Por favor transmite nuestros mejores deseos a tus padres, a los que siempre recordamos. Deseamos volver a veros pronto, y quizá con la preciosa Sara. Cuidaos mucho y recibid un fuerte y sincero abrazo. Rosario, Javier y familia
GBlady Bridgnorth, United Kingdom Recommended - absolutely. Left on Jul 21, 2014 for a stay in Jul 2014 2 people found this review helpful We have just returned from spending two weeks in this wonderful little corner of Cortijo san Rafael, just outside Frigiliana, and have no hesitation in recommending both Villa Dachita, and it's owners Javier and Rosario, to anyone. The villa is exactly as described in the write up, spotlessly clean, with good showers, comfortable beds, plenty of kitchen equipment if you have a mind to use it, and a great view to sit watching the sun go down with a cold glass of - whatever you prefer! Javier and Rosario are consummate hosts - helpful and available, but not intrusive. I was a little wary, this being the first time booking on TripAdvisor, but my concerns were groundless. My biggest worry is that if I share just how great they are - we'll never be able to book one of their places again because they'll be full!! A couple of things to note - the villa is a couple of miles out of Frigiliana town itself in a residential area, and the parking space is tight - not really suitable for larger or low slung cars, though we parked a little further up the road without a problem OUR RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice review. Is excellent you enjoy in Dachita, and we are very happy see you again here in the future, and sure with time in advance you have availability. You are welcome always. Thank you for your help in the English description. Love Rosario, Javier and children
Frans K Leiden, The Netherlands Zomerse rust en comfort Left on Aug 3, 2014 for a stay in Jul 2014 Prettig compleet huis in mooie setting. Zeer benaderbare eigenaar. Aangename omgeving met bergen, zee en mooie dorpen vlakbij. OUR RESPONSE: Querida familia: Deseamos que el regreso a casa, haya sido bueno. Nos complace saber que disfrutaron sus vacaciones en Dachita. Un placer volver a verles de nuevo por aquí, en esta su casa. Un cordial saludo Rosario, Javier y familia
marsandbob Livingston, United Kingdom PERFECTION Left on Oct 22, 2015 for a stay in Oct 2015 2 people found this review helpful Located equidistant between Nerja and Frigiliana the Villa is ideal for enjoying the peace and tranquillity with all amenities being only a 5 minute drive away. The owners Rosario and Javier go that extra mile just to make sure you enjoy your stay and contact and booking is very easy. The lower terrace is ideal for morning sun and dining al fresco in the evening. The upper terrace is the place to be for the heat of the afternoon as there is a very good sized plunge pool on the roof. The two separate bedrooms (one with en-suite shower) make this property ideal for couples or small families. Satellite TV provides English speaking channels and the free wifi allows you to stay in touch with the outside world if you so desire. The galley kitchen is well equipped for cooking and there is a barbecue on the terrace. The views are fantastic looking out onto the Sierra Almajera and down to Nerja and the sea. We will be returning that's a promise. OUR RESPONSE: Only few houres you leave, and again we miss you. Thank you very much for your lovely review. We apreciate this, and thank you for coming in our Dachita. For us is a pleasure see you soon, and you are welcome always and anytime. Our love. Take good care. Rosario, Javier and children
MandM29 Ashbourne, United Kingdom Tranquil setting between the mountains and the sea Left on Nov 13, 2015 for a stay in Nov 2015 1 people found this review helpful Beautifully situated with views up into the mountains and south east towards the Mediterranean this is a very comfortable and well equipped property which will comfortably accommodate up to four people. The property is situated about halfway between the beautiful hillside village of Frigiliana and the larger coastal town of Nerja, both of which are about a five minute drive away. There is a lovely partially covered private 'breakfast terrace' which enjoys full sun throughout the morning and early afternoon while up some steps from the front door there is another terrace with a small but immaculately clean pool. Visiting in early/mid November we were fortunate to benefit from perfect weather however there is an evening chill at this time of year and with cooler weather the log burner and the owner's generous supply of logs would definitely have proved essential. The owner, Javier, was particularly pleasant and helpful and the property is exactly as described. It seems worth pointing out that the property does not have an oven, just a hob and microwave, and that the parking area is quite small and will struggle to accommodate anything much bigger than a Polo sized vehicle. There are also a lot of steps in the property so it is perhaps not entirely suitable for either the elderly or the very young. That aside we highly recommend this property and would not hesitate to use it again. OUR RESPONSE: Dear Guest: We are very happy, you have a nice holidays, and enjoy our good area weather. Is a pleasure for us see you agsin here soon. You are welcome always. Take good care and send our best wishes Rosario and Javier
J A Venray, The Netherlands Heerlijk relaxt Left on May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016 Heerlijk rustig gelegen huisje met een prachtig uitzicht op zee. Huisje biedt alles wat je nodig hebt. zwembad is klein maar prima voor een frisse duik. Auto is noodzakelijk maar er is dan ook voldoende te zien in de omgeving. Frigiliana is een prachtig dorp met veel restaurantjes. Eigenaar Javier is zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Koelkast al goed gevuld bij aankomst. OUR RESPONSE: Dear guest: Happy you enjoy your holidays in our Dachita. Happy see you again soon. You are welcome always. Our best wishes Rosario and Javier
erindoors54 Birmingham, United Kingdom Mrs Left on Aug 24, 2016 for a stay in Aug 2016 Just left Dachita having visited many times. Every time we go, improvements have been made - even though we always think that the previous incarnation is fabulous! Javier and Rosario have been wonderful hosts and are always kind and welcoming. So very sad to leave but, look forward to next time... OUR RESPONSE: Another year more, this friend and lovely family stay in our Dachita. We are very happy you enjoy always with us. For us is a pleasure see you here every year. And you are welcome always. Thank you very much for your constancy and fidelity. Love and our best wishes for all the family.

Mark W Greetings from Mark and Hazel in Malvern Left on May 27, 2012 for a stay in Feb 2012 Once again Javier and Rosario proved themselves to be the most friendly and helpful people in the whole of Spain! Over the past few years we have stayed in nearly all of the properties owned by Javier and Rosario and all are of very high quality and in lovely locations, the views are fantastic with vistas over Nerja and the Med and mountains providing a stunning backdrop. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of the houses.
Het is een fijn huis, gelegen in een perfect gebied. Dicht bij strand maar ook bij het mooie bergdorpje Frigiliana. Makkelijk te vinden en goede wegen NUESTRA RESPUESTA: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario y haber decidido disfrutar vuestra estancia en nuestra casa.. Un placer volver a teneros con nosotros. Seréis siempre bienvenidos. Sinceramente Rosario y Javier
erindoors54 Birmingham, United Kingdom Love it here! Left on Feb 14, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2016 We've been to Dachita many times. Every time, it just gets better and better. Javier and Rosario are wonderful hosts. Dachita is beautiful, comfortable, well equipped and just the right size for a family. It is close enough to Frigiliana and Nerja for you to enjoy the delights of the area but, far enough away to give you peace and tranquility (as long as the sound of cicadas isn't too loud). Overall, one of my favourite places in the world! OUR RESPONSE : Thank you very much for your lovely review. Is nice see you soon, same always and every year. Love for you all Rosario and Javier
stevepF87FT Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom Wonderful Holiday Left on Feb 16, 2017 for a stay in Sep 2016 Dachita is a beautiful and well-appointed villa with wonderful views towards the mountains and Nerja.

OUR RESPONSE: Dear good friends: Thank you very much for your nice review. We are very happy see you again here and soon. Is a pleasure for us, when our guest and friends, enjoy the holidays with us. Thank you again, and wish all the best Rosario, Javier and children

Dachita position provides easy access to the beautiful village of Frigiliana and the beaches of nearby Nerja and is well placed to enjoy walks in the nature reserve of Sierra Tejeda which is on the doorstep. Over the last 14 years we have stayed in all the properties of Rosario and Javier they are the perfect hosts, on hand if you need them invisible if you don't.

Close to Nerja and lovely frigiliana . Lots to do. Gejat WiFi and new comfortabele showers. OUR RESPONSE: Thank you for you review. We are happy you enjoy your stay.

An extremely attractive, very well equipped house in a beautiful setting. Left on Feb 21, 2017 for a stay in Apr 2016 We have stayed at Dachita at least 10 times and have always had a wonderful time there. The house is beautifully equipped and furnished and ideal for a short or long holiday. From the balcony there are stunning,views of the mountains in the Parc National which offers good walking.The village of Frigiliana with its wide range of restaurants is close by and the small town of Nerja on the coast has beaches and more restaurants . Rosario and Javier are ideal hosts and treat all their guests as friends. We are looking forward to our next holiday there this year!
NJP2317 Dalbeattie, United Kingdom Pretty, in quiet location with sea and mountain views. Left on Feb 25, 2017 for a stay in Oct 2016 We have stayed at Javier and Rosario's properties many times, but we still get a thrill when we drive to Dachita. It is so pretty in traditional white, with the blue doors and the tiled roof. There is always something of interest in the small but beautiful garden. The terraces have terracotta tiles and well tended plants in pots. There are sun loungers, tables and chairs for al fresco dining, a barbeque and a swimming pool. From the terraces, there are splendid views of the mountains and the village of Frigiliana and to the sea and Nerja. Dachita is in the quiet, sought after area of Cortijo San Rafael, but is close to the regular bus service between Nerja and Frigiliana, so renting a car is not essential, although it is more fun! Javier and Rosario pride themselves on providing a warm welcome, a thoughtful welcome pack to get you started on holiday, a very comfortable and well equipped villa with wifi and spotless inside and out. For the cooler months there is a wood burning stove to keep you cosy. We would thoroughly recommend Dachita for a holiday, but equally recommend one of their other properties : Arcos de Almona in Frigiliana, El Torin and La Reserva close to the National Park and the largest property also in Cortijo San Rafael, Hazilla de Raya. Javier and Rosario and their children Claudia and Nicolas are extra special. We arrived as strangers and left as friends OUR RESPONSE: Dear good friends: Thank you for the lovely review. We apreciatte this. We are very happy see you hope soon. we are very pleased see you here soon, and for us you know is a pleasure our friendship after many years. We miss you. All the best and our love Rosario, Javier and children
Wir waren vom 24.05. bis 07.06.2017 in dieser Finca . Wir kamen in eine sehr saubere Finca mit einem ansprechenden Ambiente. Der Kühlschrank war teilweise gefüllt mit Getränken, Salat, Tomaten, Margarine, Marmelade, Eiern und es lagen weiter Lebensmittel (Brot, Chips, Rotwein, etc.) daneben. Die Lage am Hang mit dem Pool oben drauf: einfach herrlich und sehr ruhig gelegen. Wir können diese Finca ganz doll weiterempfehlen. Die Darstellung im Internet entsprach genau dem was wir vorgefunden haben. Auch die Betreuung durch den Eigentümer Javier war hervorragend freundlich und fürsorglich OUR RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. Is nice know you have a lovely time in our Dachita. You are very good guest, and you are welcome always. Happy see you again here soon. All the best Rosario, Javier and family
Special place Left on Aug 31, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017 We have just returned from another stay at Dachita. The fact that we come back year after year is testament to how lovely the house and area are and how great Javier and Rosario are. Each visit, we notice improvements. The photos really don't do Dachita justice. We were lucky to be here for the Tres Culturas Festival this year. It was great to be able to visit and be so close to the venue. The house is in a lovely quiet area where the only real noise is that of owls, cockerels and cicadas. There is a host of wildlife to be spotted in the valley. I spent an afternoon watching the eagles doing their thing having watched a praying mantis walk up the wall by the pool. Can't recommend Dachita highly enough. For us, it's just right. ☺ OUR RFESPONSE: Thank you our dear friends. For us ( after 9 YEARS!) you all are very special friend family. We are very happy see you every summer ( and last winter) . You are welcome always, and our house and our hearts are open for you. We are happy too see your children now are a big boys. Wish all the best for you all, and take good care always. All our love Rosario, Javier and family
LausH78 Herdecke, Germany Tolle, ruhige Finca mit traumhaftem Blick von wunderschönen Terassen Left on Oct 15, 2017 for a stay in Oct 2017 Die "Dachita" ist ein wunderschönes kleines Haus in absoluter Top-Lage zwischen Bergen und Meer. Die Finca ist sehr liebevoll gepflegt, in allen Belangen gut ausgestattet und besticht vor allem durch die wunderschönen großen Terassen mit Blick in die Berge und Blick bis runter ans Meer in Nerja. Der Pool auf dem Dach ist hervorragend für eine kleine Abkühlung zwischendurch geeignet, die große Terasse zum Entspannen und Sonnenbaden oder einfach nur in die Ferne schweifen. Die Vermieter Javier und Rosario sind tolle Gastgeber: Immer erreichbar, zuverlässig, unkompliziert und sehr herzlich - dabei gleichzeitig absolut zurückhaltend. Wir wurden mit einer Grundausstattung an Nahrungsmitteln (z.B. Wasser, Wein, Saft, Obst, Brot und anderem) begrüßt. Der oberhalb liegende Ort Frigiliana ist in wenigen Fahrminuten (Mietwagen) erreichbar, der am Meer liegende Ort Nerja ebenfalls. Beide Orte sind wunderschön. Wir würden die "Dachita" jederzeit vorbehaltlos empfehlen... OUR RESPONSE: Dear guest: Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy know your stay in Dachita is very good for a enjoyable holidays. We apreciatte your choose our house, and wish see you again here soon. You are welcome always. All the best Rosario and Javier
phirsch Montréal Excellent séjour d'hiver à la Dachita (Villa Frigiliana) Left on Mar 17, 2018 for a stay in Jan 2018 Nous sommes restés à la Dachita du 15 janvier au 15 mars 2018, en hiver. Avec le poêle à bois et du chauffage électrique additionnel, la maison était confortable. Les coûts de l'électricité et du bois ont été très raisonnables, malgré un hiver frais. La grande pièce salon-salle à manger-cuisine est chaleureuse. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la belle terrasse attenante à cette grande pièce, où nous avons pris le petit déjeuner au soleil tous les jours où la température l'a permis. Cette terrasse donne une vue exceptionnelle à la fois sur la mer du côté de Nerja et sur les montagnes du côté de Frigiliana. La deuxième terrasse, avec piscine sur le toit, est ensoleillée toute la journée, ce qui est très agréable en hiver. Les hôtes, Javier et Rosario sont très accueillants et serviables. La région est belle et permet de nombreuses promenades à pied ou en voiture. Frigiliana est un très beau village, et les promenades côtières à Nerja et dans les villes et villages avoisinants nous ont beaucoup plu. NUESTRA RESPUESTA Queridos amigos: Muchas gracias por su comentario. Estamos muy contentos de que su estancia en Dachita, haya sido positiva. Para nosotros ha sido un placer tenerles con nosotros 2 meses, y siempre serán bienvenidos. Han sido ustedes unos huéspedes fantásticos. Les esperamos pronto, en esta su casa y en nuestro querido pueblo, Frigiliana. Nuestros mejores deseos Rosario y Javier
Dale1948 Cardiff, United Kingdom Lovely comfortable quiet house Left on Mar 30, 2018 for a stay in Mar 2018 We stayed in Dachita for a week and found it a really lovely and comfortable house. It is very thoughtfully equipped with everything you need. Rosario and Javier were very friendly and welcoming and had left us food and wine. They had even lit the wood burner for us as it was raining when we arrived. There is a big terrace with wonderful views down the valley to the sea. and on the roof is a swimming pool and another terrace. You can get sun or shade all day as you choose. The area is very quiet and safe. Frigliana which is beautiful, is about 5 mins drive, and Nerja is a nice little seaside town about 10 minutes in the other direction. We really enjoyed our stay and meeting Rosario and Javier and we hope to return. OUR RESPONSE: Dear guest: Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy your stay at Dachita is nice. For us the more important is our guest enjoy in our houses, and all time are a relaxing days. Happy see you again soon. You are welcome always. Best wishes Rosario and Javier
Jean-Paul H Danville, Canada “Simply charming, in a dream setting between mountain and sea” Left on Apr 11, 2018 for a stay in Mar 2018 At the end of a one-month stay at Villa Hazilla de Raya which belongs to the same owners and is located across the street it, we had to move for a short stay at “Dachita”. Most of the comments we have posted on Hazilla de Raya apply to this smaller but also most agreeable property. Namely, “Nested on the hills separating Nerja on the Mediterranean coast from the picture-perfect white village of Frigiliana, that well-appointed and comfortable property offers peace and tranquility in gorgeous surroundings, with easy access to many of the historic inland cities of that culturally rich area of Spain. For the adventurous, natural parks are right next door, including the attractive Alpujarras (Sierra Nevada). And to top it all, one could not find more gracious and generous hosts than the owners, Xavier and Rosario, constantly at the ready to offer advice and assistance. No wonder so many of their guests are returnees OUR RESPONSE: Queridos Jean Paul y Florence: Muchas gracias de nuevo por su mensaje. Nosotros celebramos que su estancia con nosotros, haya sido tan positiva. Les agradecemos su amistad y confianza, para animar a otros huéspedes a visitarnos. Quedamos a la espera de que un día y pronto, les volvamos a tener por Frigiliana. Cuídense un montón por el NUEVO MUNDO. Les esperamos desde este rincón del Planeta. Les extrañamos. Un fuerte abrazo Rosario y Javier

maureen h Great January Retreat Left on Feb 16, 2019 for a stay in Jan 2019 This was our second visit to one of the owners' properties. Our arrival was after 8pm but there was Javier ready to greet us and show us the villa. The fridge was well stacked with a generous welcome package and the woodburning stove fully ablaze. Dachita is very well located, close to both Frigiliana and Nerja so the best of two worlds: hills and coast. It is a very well equipped, clean and comfortable villa with terrace views over the valley to the sea. Our one regret was not using the inviting pool but it was January! Our hosts, Rosario and Javier, were always keen to provide the best possible experience. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you. OUR RESPONSE: Dear Guest: Thank you very much for your review.Is very important for us your stay in Dachita is perfect again. We are very happy enjoy and wish see you again here soon. You are very good guest, and you are welcome always and anytime. Best wishes and our sincerely friendship Take good care Rosario and Javier

juliepF8382EL Huddersfield, United Kingdom Perfect villa Left on Oct 20, 2019 for a stay in Sep 2019 We have stayed in one of Javier and Rosario’s villas many times before which is situated in the village and is fantastic (arcos de la Almona) and we absolutely love it. This time we decided to try one of the other villas which is about a 15 minute walk (taking the short cut) out of the village and once again absolutely loved it. The villa has everything you could possibly wish for. It is impeccably clean with beautiful crisp bedding and towels etc. It is comfortable throughout with gorgeous quality furnishings. Both shower rooms are large and easy to use. The kitchen has every type of utensil, plate, dish, pot, pan and cups and mugs you could ever need. Downstairs is a lovely twin bedroom with plenty of room for either 2 adults or children, a lovely en suite shower room is a bonus. The terrace is large and full of beautiful potted plants as well as a lovely mosaic table and 4 chairs with comfy seat covers. There are also sun beds and large chairs for your comfort. A pagoda is useful for dining in the shade. On the roof terrace is a fantastic pool area with sun beds and an extensive view of the mountains and the sea. Just beautiful!!!!! Javier, Rosario and there two children are an amazing family, so helpful and caring. They are obviously very proud of there villas and rightly so. This shows in there dedication to the upkeep of them and the caring attitude towards there guests. They go above and beyond there job. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay at any of the villas. Thank you Javier and Rosario. OUR RESPONSE: Dear J & S. dear good guest friends: We are very happy with your lovely review, and for us is a pleasure know our service is perfect for our guest. In the same time we like you know after many years coming to us, is a pleasure meet you. We apreciatte very special your review, and wish all still well with you and all your lovely family. Take care and send our love and sincerelly friendship. Rosario, Javier and family
“Javier’s place is very clean with lots of plants that add character to the property! Both beds were very comfortable and the pillows were fantastic. We slept well every single night! There’s air conditioning in the living room which helped during the hot days we were inside plus the bedrooms had fans which were great! We enjoyed sitting outside underneath the pergola to have our meals. The house has most everything you need for cooking a meal. There are coffee machines but we did bring our own coffee. Javier was friendly and quick to respond through Airbnb when we had a WiFi issue and he came to sort it out that same morning. The pool (5ish x2.5 metres) is very nice and clean and located on the roof overlooking the mountains and sea. Sun beds and a small eating area on the roof as well. Very pretty view!! The small one car parking spot is on a slope and the house is on a very steep incline so something to be aware of. We tried reversing out of the street up the hill and the clutch struggled so definitely don’t do what we did! Go to the bottom of the road and turn around. Nerja beach is a 6-7 minute drive from the house. We enjoyed our stay here!” OUR RESPONSE: Thank you very much for decide our Dachita for your stay in the area. we are very pleased meet you. You are welcome always. Regards Rosario and Javier
Ha sido una muy buena experiencia, la casa, piscina, ubicación y la amabilidad del propietario. Todo genial. Sin duda repetiremos. " Nuestra respuesta: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario.

Nuestra Respuesta: Muchas gracias por vuestro comentario. Nos sentimos complacidos de saber que habéis disfrutado vuestra estancia. Siempre seréis bienvenidos. Nuestros mejores deseos. Rosario y Javier
A experiência no geral bastante acima das 5 estrelas. Perfeita para um casal. Casa muito limpa! Dispõe de tudo que é necessário para uma estadia sem preocupações. O terraço privado é o ponto chave onde dispõe de uma pequena piscina, barbecue e zona de refeição, com uma fantástica vista rural. Vários restaurantes e mini mercados a uma curta distância a pé. Superou bastante as nossas expectativas e tivemos umas relaxantes mini férias. Os anfitriões são pessoas extremamente amáveis, experientes e estão disponíveis sempre para qualquer eventualidade. Altamente recomendada!
The saying "You never forget your first time" was said by someone who had been awaded the opportunity to see Spain. See it for the first time and Spain stays with you forever. Being in Spain is being in every picture and TV property show you have ever seen of it. It is everything you imagine. Sun is hotter. Mountains are more breathtaking. Sea is bluer. Villages quieter and prettier. People are friendlier. It took me over 30 years to wait and I am so glad it was worth it. Dachita is that lovely typical villa look that I was hoping to see from all the television and pictures. It is small yet there is so much. Dachita is just right. It has all you need and want from a villa. Two perfectly sized bedrooms (1 double and 1 with 2 single + shower room). Ample living room space. And a good sized Bathroom. It has more such as a balcony view of Nerja only seen in a painting which I spent many hours enjoying. And the rooftop saltwater plunge pool and area to lounge or sit and drink serves to cool you down. And just less than an hour away from lively Nerja or the quieter Frigiliana. Both offer amazing gift shops, restaurants and places to view this stunning country. Javier and Roasrio are the two nicest people you could meet and it was a honour and privilege to meet them. A stay in Dachita is a must.
We stayed in the Dachita villa from October 6 till November 9 2023. A well maintained very nice house with a pool on the second floor to catch the sun the whole day. Umbrella's provided. It has a big terrace, with comfortable chairs to enjoy the fantastic view on the surrounding hills, the sea, and the sun if you like. Part of the terrace is covered where an extra dining table and chairs are located. We enjoyed having breakfast there every day. The interior is modern styled with mostly white furniture. Owner Javier and wife Rosario are extremely friendly people who will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Example: We asked for an espresso coffee machine which was not in the house. Within 1/2 hour Javier came to bring one, complete with some coffee, milk and sugar as we didn't have time to go to the supermarket yet. They have a bigger villa just across the small street. We were allowed to see it. It is also a very nice villa with bigger rooms and pool and beautiful garden with nice views. We decided already to stay there next time when we come to Spain. We recommend both places, Location is nice, close to Nerja, and the beach but very quiet. They have also two nice places in Frigiliana itself.
