Perfect!
The casita was the perfect place for my 17 yr old daughter and I to have a wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped, inside and out, and was also in a beautiful setting that would make a lovely romantic getaway! The owners' house is nearby but is screened off by garden and bamboo screens so that we had complete privacy on the patio and by the gorgeous little pool. Rolf and Erna were very gracious and helpful and provided useful tips on restaurants, places to visit and so on. ( We would highly recommend La Rompiente in Torrox Costa for a special meal.) Balcon de Andaluz was also well situated for visits to Granada, Nerja, Malaga and Frigiliana. The high point of our trip was Lobo Park, north of Malaga, and well worth a visit if you're an animal lover. We highly recommend the casita and thank Rolf and Erna for their warmth and humour. We would love to see them at Balcon de Andaluz again soon!

Heerlijk tot rust komen met uitzicht over de Middellandse Zee
Een gezellige en goede casita, met uitzicht over zee. Op het terras heb je een prachtige uitzicht over zee en geniet je van de rust om je heen. Het is een prima vertrekpunt om naar Ronda, de Sierra Nevada, het prachtige achterland of de kust te gaan. December is ook een prima tijd voor dit stuk van Spanje. Een aangename temperatuur en in de dorpjes en natuur zijn nauwelijks toeristen. Een aaanrader.

Een heerlijk, relaxed, en gezellig verblijf.
Wij hebben hele fijne dagen gehad in de casita van Erna en Rolf. Het is een heel gezellig huisje met een prachtig (privé) zwembad op ongeveer 5 minuten van het strand en met uitzicht op zee. De eigenaren doen er alles aan om het naar je zin te maken. Zo stond er een fles water, fruit, koffie en thee klaar bij aankomst en hielpen ze ons bij het zoeken naar mooie wandelingen. Er is ontzettend veel te doen in de omgeving. Er zijn prachtige bergdorpjes en mooie stranden. Bij ons is Nerja (10 minuten rijden) favoriet; zowel als dorp als het strand. Ook de grote Andalusische steden zijn goed te bereiken. Voor rustzoekers een super plek!

About the neighbourhood
The area is known for its celebrations, like the “Fiësta de tres Culturas” in Frigiliana which celebrates the rich origins of the peaceful coexistence of three communities in this area: Jewish, Muslim and Christianity. This fiësta remains popular today and includes performance of traditional music and dances as well as outdoor markets offering traditional crafts and products from each culture. For beach lovers, sandy beaches can be found along the coast at towns like Torre del Mar, Algarrobo, El Morche, Torrox en Nerja. Each beach has good facilities including many chirinquitos (beachside cafes) offering local specialties like Espetos de Sardines: sardines roasted over a wood fire stove. Of course, there are also many restaurants and we are more than happy to give you our recommendations on which culinary locations should not be missed. A visit to Nerja is a definite must, a little touristic but beautiful beach location with little crooked lanes, charming shops and great tapas bars and restaurants. The highest point in town, Balcón de Europa, offers an amazing view of the sea. A visit to one of the Flamenco bars is highly recommended. And don't forget to visit the famous Caves (stalactite and stalagmite) of Nerja while you are there. Torrox en Nerja are locally renowned for their bars with live music, especially for their jam sessions. Do you play an instrument or can you really sing? If so, be prepared to join the jam. Various local musicians join with vacationers to make each evening a surprise. Repertoire is mostly music from the 60 and 70;s but influences from younger participants bring the music up to date and sometimes even add local Spanish influences. We are happy to give you tips on when and where to find the best jam sessions. In a short car ride of less than 10 minutes from our Balcón de Andaluz, you can find an extensive shopping mall called El Ingenio: more than 100 shops and a large supermarket Eroski. In addition to this Algarrobo-Costa has two more large supermarkets: Lidl en Mercadona.The weekly market of Caleta en Torre del Mar is also worth visiting.
