"What guests say"
We had a fantastic week at Al Ladino in October. The Villa is perfect in every way with the most stunning of views. Danny was the perfect host, corresponding with us on every detail we needed both before and during our stay. The welcome pack said everything about Al Ladino's attention to detail. During our stay we had a chef who cooked for us one night at home – a wonderful evening with a superb cook – thoroughly recommended.
The detailed arrival instructions meant we found our way up the hill to the villa. When we got through the external door we were greeted by an incredible view onto the patio, over Nerja and the sea beyond, as well as a big welcome basket full of local foods and produce. The villa itself had been immaculately refurbished with high vaulted ceilings, central fireplace (not needed given the weather) and an open kitchen/ living room. The owners had taken a lot of care and attention with the decor and furnishings; we appreciated all the interesting ornaments and items throughout the property which added to the authentic Spanish style. I stayed in the master suite which had a very large double bed and double doors overlooking the pool and sea view. The bathroom had both a shower and bath, with aged wooden counter top.
Nerja, Frigiliana and the surrounding towns and villages were within
a short dive and this meant there was plenty of eating out options. It didn't feel like the overly commercialised tourist areas around Malaga and Marbella. I would highly recommend a stay at Al Ladino if you appreciate good quality holiday accommodation and a serene environment.
Thanks again, the Fowler's.
Danny and all that he has working for him are friendly and make you feel very welcome.
A beautiful place in a beautiful part of the world.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Al Ladino. Ce lieu est un véritable petit paradis. La décoration est très cosy et très harmonieuse! Nous avons adoré. La villa est très bien équipée. L'environnement est très calme, aucune nuisance. Beaucoup de couleurs et de fleurs à l'extérieur et une piscine très agréable pour bien se rafraichir.
La vue est magnifique, mer et montagne et nous invite à la sérénité. Nerja est une ville très agréable et proche. Nous avons aussi beaucoup aimé Grenade.
Danny est un propriétaire très sérieux et réactif. Il accorde le temps nécessaire à ses locataires. Nous avons reçu un mail avant de partir avec toutes les explications pour trouver la villa et beaucoup d'autres informations très utiles pour notre séjour. Danny répond vite à toutes demandes.
A notre arrivée des fleurs dans les vases, de bons fruits dans la corbeille, du bon vin et des rafraichissements dans le réfrigérateur.
Nous garderons un très beau souvenir d'Al Ladino!
La note est de 6 étoiles pour nous.
Un saludo Danny
Bien heureux celui qui possède ce lieu.
It was also great to find fresh bread, eggs and wine waiting for us after a long journey.
Danny is very friendly, caring and well prepared owner who made us feel we were staying in an old friend's house.
We would definitely like to stay here again!
Mit Danny hat alles bestens geklappt. Er hat uns hervorragend informiert, war immer zuverlässig und ein freundlicher Ansprechpartner. Dasselbe gilt für seine Leute vor Ort. Am Ende haben wir problemlos und schnell unsere Kaution zurückbekommen.
Unser Fazit: Uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen! Das heisst zwar nicht, dass es nicht auch Dinge gäbe, die zu verbessern wären. Zum Beispiel kamen wir am Anfang mit dem Gasherd nicht zurecht, eine Beschreibung fehlt dafür leider. Auch sollte Danny die Begrüßungsmappe mal wieder ordnen und aktualsieren. Aber das sind Kleinigkeiten, die nicht wirklich ins Gewicht fallen.
Beim Abschied hatten wir jedenfalls Tränen in den Augen, so lieb haben wir diesen traumhaften Ort gewonnen!

Al ladino is also a great base to explore the area with Nerja just down the road and Frigiliana and the famous cave system a short drive. There are several great local beaches and restaurants our favourite was near Paraiso de Nerja, a great little beach with a restaurant/bar. Nerja is a beautiful place with many great shops, restaurants and beaches and the Balcón de Europa is not to be missed. We loved going out for dinner in Nerja but it was always nice to return to the peace and tranquillity of Al Ladino.
beautiful Andalucian casita, where we were lucky enough to stay in December/January 2016/17. From the first moment we arrived we were captivated by the beauty, ambience and quality of the house and its' surroundings. There was a wonderful welcome pack which was very well received! Danny the owner has obviously put his heart and soul into every element of Al Ladino and this clearly makes it such a very special place to stay.
The stunning interior has interest and charisma, with lovely unexpected features such as the stone bath and feature wall in the bathroom adjoining the master bedroom and the log burner in the living room for cooler evenings. The fixtures, fittings and linens are all to a very high standard and the furniture is customised to fit in perfectly with the charm of the house.
Outside the views are stunning, day and night and the peace and quiet makes for a very relaxing environment. We were able to drink Cava and watch the fireworks over Nerja from the terrace on New Years Eve, this was really quite special.
We felt totally at ease throughout our whole experience, from booking through to receiving our security deposit back, nothing was too much trouble. Everything we needed to know and more was covered in detail in the information pack we received. Danny has put together a very special team to look after the property and its' visitors and although they are totally unobtrusive, it is reassuring to know that they are there, if needed. Oscar the Property Manager is only a phone call away and is a fantastic source of useful information about Nerja and the surrounding area. We would heartily recommend this wonderful house to anyone looking for outstanding, quality accommodation near to lovely Nerja and we will happily return in the future.
