A hop from the coast. Wend your way up, past manicured villas to Al Ladino – private and quiet, yet far from remote. Its sister, El Monte Bajo, is next door. Your open-plan kitchen/living room has a rustic, communal feel; wood abounds and there's a lovely old estufa (stove) for that early morning cuppa. A tiny window, complete with its original old grille, adds character. The kitchen is the hub of the house, so cooks won't feel out of the loop when everyone else is relaxing. Bedrooms are unfussy and comfortable, with good linen, and one is off the sunny terrace – just outside; bathrooms are simple with good towels and soaps. Your welcome basket brims with seasonal fruit, tuna in olive oil, black bread, orange juice, cava… When you've devoured a sumptuous dinner (a cook can be arranged for a slap-up meal) and had a good night's sleep, there's plenty to get stuck into nearby: visit the pretty town of Frigiliana, go skiing in the Sierra Nevada (an hour's drive). The beach – El Playazo – is just two kilometres away, so you really can ski in the morning and swim in the afternoon at certain times of the year!

"We visited this beautiful cottage for the first time this summer with my two young sons. When we arrived we were blown away by how beautiful and rustic it was and how well kept and furnished inside and out. So much love and care to detail has gone into making this gorgeous property perfect for any one staying. Me and my family had the most wonderful week here. It is lovely and quiet and looks out onto breath taking scenery . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return one day. "

"Our visit this year was our third. The improvements and renovations are outstanding! We already adored the place, but now it is even better, the higher ceilings in particular help to keep the cottage cooler inside, very pleasant. If you are looking for a very private and quiet sanctuary, one where you can totally relax, then this is the place to stay. Beautifully clean, both inside and out. Amazing views from the patio towards Nerja and the sea. We are already looking forward to our next visit. "

"Wow! What a gem of a find! Moments after our arrival and we were already planning our return visit... Danny was so helpful with preparations before we arrived, from excellent directions to organising 'supplies'... Nothing was too much trouble to him... The villa is just beautiful. It has an authentic yet modern decor, which gives it a super luxurious and classy feel. And a quiet and idyllic mountain setting with stunning views out towards the sea. And just a short cab ride away... the lively, bustling town centre of Nerja on your door step. What more could you want? It's just superb..."

"My Husband and I booked this a special treat for our anniversary and I must say we were not disappointed. From the initial contact with Danny who could not have been more helpful to staying at the cottage. The cottage interior is very impressive and clean. When we arrived we were treated to a lovely welcome pack which meant we didn't have to run out right away and get supplies. I loved the open plan layout. The outside space were we spent most of our time has a lovely pool area which is not overlooked in any way. I would definitely recommend this cottage and hopefully we will return very soon."

"We were fortunate to be the first to experience the recently renovated and remodelled Al Ladino. The open plan living/dining and kitchen area with a wood burning fire as a focal point is immediately impressive and provides the definitive WOW factor. Equally impressive are the two double bedrooms with their ultra chic en-suite facilities. The outside pool and seating areas are inviting, especially in the evening where the spectacular lighting around the property creates a delightful ambience. This rustic casita is a very special place indeed and we look forward to returning to this little gem."
