Emma and Andrew Muir purchased this villa in 2002

Why Emma and Andrew Muir chose Urbanización Punta Lara

A 5 minute walk to a secluded beach with great snorkelling (fish swim around you and eat from your hand) yet surrounded to the rear by imposing mountains. The views are stunning.

Great seafood restaurants on the beach a five minute walk away plus the one of the best restaurants in Nerja (according to TripAdvisor) is literally just down the road.

What makes this villa unique

In a quiet area just outside the town, but with all the town amenities close by. Rare for villas, this house has both a large patio area around the pool plus its own private garden with grass and tropical fruit trees. Upstairs, two of the main bedrooms open out on to a balcony terrace where you can sit back and watch the sun set over the mountains and sea (with Gin and Tonic in hand!).

Well maintained villa with everything you could wish for

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in Banoo villa. Emma is a joy to deal with and those good vibes carried over to our first impressions. We knew within minutes that we had made the right choice - not always easy in the lottery of villa rental!

No need to repeat other comments other than we hope to return.

Our stay at Banoo

  • 5 of 5

A party of 7 , ageing from 11 to 78. We had 14 wonderful days again!

The villa is immaculate, well equipped and roomy. The villa is situated about 25 mins away from the town centre and can be accessed by road or beach. There is a bus that runs every hour , the bus stop is 10 mins away. Would recommend a car for anyone who has difficult walking although taxis only cost about €8 into town or to Lidl!

Andrew and Emma are friendly and approachable. Thank you, hopefully back next year.

Very pleasant and comfortable villa in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Family group arriving for late season holiday. Really enjoyed the villa. Due to timing the pool was a little cold but bearable. Peaceful location yet on hand for great bars and restaurants. The villa was lovely - large and well maintained with good privacy. Walked into Nerja each day took about 45 mins. Local places too for lazy days. Would recommend as this is a really nice villa away from the bustle.

Note if dropping the keys off out of hours Eurosur doesn't seem to have a letterbox so needed to find the Hotel Nerja club who are on the far side of town - leave time to get there!

Owner's Response: Dear John, Thank you for your kind review & feedback, we are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Banoo Villa. I probably need to make it more clear in our information pack that you can leave the keys in the villa at the end of your stay so apologies that you had to make the trip to the managing agents unnecessarily and I have made a note to highlight this bit of info for the next guests. Best wishes Emma and Andrew

Superb tranquil location – stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We are two families (8 of us in all) and have just come back from a fabulous holiday in Banoo Villa. The villa itself is luxuriously appointed and has absolutely everything you could want for. Its set in a quiet area a short distance just outside Nerja town and only a short walk to the beaches. The views are magnificent with the Mediterranean sea to the front and the imposing mountains behind. We loved the local restaurants and bars near to the villa and especially the seafood one right on the beach. The family loved the pool and we made a lot of use of the poolside BBQ. We’ll definitely be coming back!

Fabulous villa for our family celebration

  • 5 of 5

We chose Banoo Villa for its great location with beautiful beach and mountain views and within close walking distance Nerja town to host our recent 25th wedding anniversary with family. The villa offered lots of space for all 10 of us with the 4 bathrooms being really useful. There aren’t many villas in the area that can house large groups so this was a bonus. The villa is so well kitted out, we needed for nothing and the added benefit of beach towels is a lovely touch. The owners Emma and Andrew were so helpful, organising transfers and extras for us and answering all our questions very rapidly.

A lovely property in a great location. There are at least 4 restaurants within 10 min walk, a local bar nearby and it's only a short drive into Nerja for unlimited choice. The beach is also only an easy, 5 min walk from the villa. All mod cons covered - wifi, air con, TV/DVD easily operated, electric awnings, outside lights, dwasher, washing machine etc. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't provided. The pool was great as well, just the right size for a cooling dip. There are large dining areas both inside and outside so perfect whatever the weather. Our group of 8 had a fantastic week, it was a shame to leave. The booking process/info/comms was simple and efficient.

One of the main attractions of Nerja is its coast line. Unlike the other zones of the Costa del Sol, here the mountains reach the shore, forming majestic cliffs between which nestle picturesque coves and beaches. As you travel eastwards, these cliffs become higher and more frequent.

The town its self is situated on a plain surrounded by the rising peaks of the last foot hills of the Sierra Almijara mountain range.

The beauty of these beaches and cliffs make it ideal for holiday makers. The local authorities have imposed a number of limitations on this zone in order to protect it from the impact of mass tourism.

The municipality contains a large number of springs forming rivers and streams. Indeed, Nerja must have had many waterways since the earliest times, for the name of the town during the Moorish occupation was Narixa, which means "abundant spring".

To the west of the town the river Chillar reaches the sea, swollen by the the Higueron and the Seco.

Nerja town centre has preserved the traditional style of the Andalucian village. In many tourist resorts, economic development has taken place and changes have been made in order to accommodate the arrival of mass tourism, transforming the houses and streets of entire towns, and almost always for the worse. Nerja however, has not only conserved its original structure, but all new constructions have been adapted to the traditional Andalucian style of whitewashed houses, windows with grills, roofs with two slopes etc.

The nerve centre of Nerja is the Balcón de Europa, a favourite site with local people and visitors alike. The promenade, flanked on the left by lovely arches and on the right by hotels, bars and restaurants, ends at a semi-circular viewpoint at the cliff-top, commanding magnificent views over the Mediterranean and the surrounding mountains.

Sunset seen from the Balcón de Europa is unforgettable. The promenade is lined with palms and plane trees, and two ancient cannons form a reminder that until 1812 there was a fortress at the top of the cliffs. At the opposite end, turning left, is a square containing the church of El Salvador.

Between the Calahonda and the Carabeo beaches runs the Paseo de Los Carabineros, a delightful natural pathway amongst the rocks of the coastline. Further east are the Jardines de Europa, charming botanical gardens which slope down to the Playa de Burriana.

Nerja enjoys a Mediterranean climate, these benign conditions combine with a number of unique features to bless the area with a splendid climate. The surrounding mountains protect Nerja from the cold north winds, whilst the influence of the sea makes for milder temperatures, both in summer and in winter.

These climatic conditions, combined with the abundance of water, have allowed a rich agricultural industry to grow up here, famous for over one thousand years.

In ancient times, sub-tropical fruits such as sugar cane and the chrimoya were introduced to the area, and in recent times exotic fruits such as papayas, mangoes and avocados have been added to the list. Vegetables such as batatas are also grown here, as well as traditional Mediterranean products like grapes, almonds and olives.

You will find all of this local fresh produce in the town markets and of course in the numerous restaurants.

What is there to do?

As well as enjoying the local food, wine and sunshine we recommend:-

The famous Nerja caves are here and are an absolute must visit and are amongst some of the most spectacular in Europe.

One of the great family adventure days out exploring the national park in the mountains by Landrover. Stunning wildlife and scenery. We will supply details of this organised trip.

A day out on a yacht, with optional watersports and possible dolphin sightings.

Off road 4WD buggy tours in the mountains - great fun!

A visit to the Alhambra palace in Granda and perhaps stay in a cave hotel for a night at Gaudix nearby. Gaudix is an ancient troglodyte town of cave dwellers. Very different!

An evening in a genuine Spanish bar where the locals will spontaneously just get up and sing and dance flamenco to a live flamenco guitarist.

Malaga city is hardly touched by tourists and its a great Spanish city to visit with its 1,000 year old fish, fruit, veg and meat market, museums aplenty and interesting shops.

Visit a "Lost village' in the mountains behind the villa, abandoned in the civil war after Franco killed all the inhabitants. You need a car to get here along some precarious tracks, but its being rebuilt by descendants of the families & the best country cooking in the area can be found in the bar/restaurant there. A different bread is baked daily along with unusual & interesting traditional mountain dishes. A unique experience.

Great snorkelling on a secluded beach just a ten minute walk from the villa. Yes, you really can experience fish swimming around you & eating from your hand.

Details of the above + other ideas are supplied to all our clients.
