Slap bang in the heart of Nerja, Malaga, Spain, is the Little Italy Restaurant. Leaving The Balcon, and the sea, to your rear, turn right (Away from Malaga direction) and after a few metres you are presented with three pedestrian avenues. Take the right turn, Calle Carabeo. This beautiful avenue runs parallel to the sea, with many 'look out points along the way. In fact the view from these lookouts was voted the second best vista/view in the whole of Spain (And no, before you ask,I am unaware of the best vista). Unfortunately there is no such view adjacent to the Little Italy Restaurant. Calle Carabeo is a narrow cobbled street full of ancient character which is used for both commercial and residentia...Read More

Hotel | "Coffee morning with a great view"

What! 4 Euros for 2 cups of coffee? Normally a lot of money in Nerja, however at the Hotel Balcon De Europa this is well worth the money. The Balcon was named locally by one of the Spanish kings around a zillion years ago as the balcony of Europe. On a sunny day, when the wind is calm and the sea is flat, there is no better view around. The Hotel Balcon De Europa is ideally placed for a coffee on the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean. In fact on a busy, sunny, day the chairs are at a premium where people spend the day people watching, people listening, reading their newspapers and allowing the day to go by. The Balcon (Balcony) extends over the cliff like a scene from the Titanic (Only with ...Read More

"You want me to eat where? On Valentines night!" Was not a good start to our night of romance. Having recently moved into the Nerja area and seeking a glass of something refreshing, ie beer, some days earlier, I had ended up at the ‘Axarquia Estaciendo Service station’ bar one evening. This is quite simply a motor way services with a difference. Situated on the Frigiliana to Nerja road, it sits above the junction with the Autovia A7. Exit (Salida) 292 It is accessible by both foot and vehicle. The vast premises covers most needs found by travellers using the motorway, and local residents. Car wash, fuel station, 24 hour grocery store (Even sells ‘Marmite’ a popular savoury spread used by the Br...Read More

Having recently moved into the Nerja area, and being an avid walker, it was a delight to find John Keo. 'Johnny Walker' operates as an independent company/one man band. He lives in the whitewashed hillside village of Frigiliana. This village is a short bus bus ride from Nerja. His website http://www.hikingwalkingspain.com explains the different walks available, together with costings. Briefly each walk, which lasts all day, costs 17 Euros per person, or an annual walking pass for 60 Euros. There is not much more better than strolling through the hills in bright sunshine with a light wind cooling things down. Having said that, because of the intense heat during the summer, John does ...Read More

Bar El Acebuchal, Acebuchal, Frigiliana

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Restaurant in 'Hidden village.'"

Bar El Acebuchal, Acebuchal, Frigiliana Photo, Malaga, Spain
Quote:
Bar El Acebuchal is the sole restaurant in the very small village of Acebuchal, which is settled in the foothills about 5Kms from the beautiful whitewashed village of Frigiliana, about 50 kms from Malaga.This restaurant is accessible by car, however because of the state of the road hire cars are not covered for the last 2 kms of the trip. This has the wonderful result that the restaurant is mainly used by locals and hill walkers. If you do drive there is plenty of off road parking as you begin the descent into the village. Be aware that taxis will not make the journey. The walk is very pleasant to the restaurant where you can relax with large glasses of local beer.Try the home made...Read More
