Four Bed Villa – Sleeps 8-9
El Jardin Secreto is a modern, spacious, airy villa surrounded by private gardens. It has everything you need for a fantastic holiday including a poolside ‘tiki bar’ with a family table and barbecue/cooking/fridge facilities for fun-filled nights outside under the stars. We have thought of everything as there are even 2 sets of golf clubs there for you to hire should you fancy a round on one if the manicured local courses. If you stay longer than 1 week the agency send a maid to change the beds and make them up with fresh linen, leave you clean towels and do a mini clean of the house. The reputable local agency who look after the house know it well should you need help or advice during your stay. They are based in Nerja. Free Wifi Internet access on arrival or during your holiday. There are English TV stations available and please note that in Spain the receptors are intermittently changed, so adjustment may be required by the agency during your stay. AC now available throughout the house.
The villa is decorated in an eclectic manner with very modern touches and interesting pictures and artefacts gathered from the local markets. Guests really seem to like this mix which add to the interest of the house.
The pool area is very popular and is surrounded by the lovely gardens at the house. These areas are particularly appealing for family groups who gather outside and can make the most of the large lawned areas as well as this pool area. Straw umbrellas with tables and sun – beds are located next to the pool. There is a seating area under the porch for having drinks etc.
There is a burglar alarm and safe fitted at the villa for peace of mind during your stay. Lots of room for parking behind the ranch style gates at the entrance.
It is a very private place to be and not close to neighbours who ask you to turn your favourite music down outside if you want to dance around the pool at night! It is a place to chill out and have fun.

The villa looks out to sea from a viewpoint just outside the main town of Nerja. There are also excellent mountain views. The walk to the centre of town is downhill and takes approx 20 – 30 mins depending on age/ability. A taxi ride back costs approx. 7 euros.
The villa is all on one floor inside, making mobility easier. Outside, after leaving your car the kitchen can be accessed without having to negotiate steps. The pool area and outdoor facilities are on one level with the bonus of a tiled outdoor shower under the bougainvillea. Most villas in this area seem to have a lot of steps to different floors/pool areas etc so this villa is relatively unique being on one floor. This makes a family stay easier/more comfortable.
A large private pool is outside in the patio area. It measures approx 10 x 5 metres and has steps into it at one end. The deepest part is 2 metres. It is solar-heated, so temperatures vary depending on the hours of sun at the time. The large mature gardens make the holiday even more special and a gardener ensures the lawns are cut and the trees and bushes are pruned. Sun loungers by the pool. Most of these are multi-positional. Three large Spanish straw umbrellas are a permanent feature, each having its’ own fixed table. They are perfectly safe even in windy weather. As described,the ‘Tiki-Bar’ is a popular place to spend time and has hosted some brilliant gatherings.It has atmospheric lighting for the evenings and a large table with modern seating. A barbecue, gas hob and fridge turn it into a second kitchen. It is shaded by a rattan roof covered in colourful climbing plants.It is possible to play music outside without worrying about neighbours due to the privacy of the villa. In another part of the garden is a ‘pizza oven’ wood/coal fired barbecue for the ‘Jamie Olivers’ who stay.
Stays of 2 + weeks can be negotiated.
