¡Bienvenidos! from our hidden paradise, we’re three kilometres west of the small town of Nerja and 45 minutes drive east of Malaga airport. The nearest beach is visible from patio and our favourite restaurants are just a few minutes away in town. Twenty years ago we were drawn to Al Ladino because of its understated charm, warm energy and panoramic vistas of the coastline.

This is life close to nature, up a hillside and sitting next to the last remaining pine forest, a protected landscape for now and the future.

This is the best of both worlds, ‘la vida tranquila’, the peaceful life, where the air is clean, the birds sing and yet civilization is not too far away as you relax by the private sunkissed south facing pool.

Al Ladino is a charming terracotta roofed ‘casa de campo’. Many don’t know it exists, but local Spanish people who’ve seen it says it’s ‘preciosa’ – priceless, lovely, gorgeous … so beautiful it’s ‘incomparable!’ They remember it being built years ago like it was yesterday!

The views are unforgetable during the day. After dark, concealed patio lighting illuminates the pool area and lights of Nerja and the coastline beckon. The perfect end to the day.
