About Emma and Andrew Muir

Emma and Andrew Muir purchased this villa in 2002

Why Emma and Andrew Muir chose Nerja area

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!).

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely syay in Banoo Villa it was a well maintained and comfortable villa. The area was quiet and friendly. The villa had all you needed for a stay. There are some lovely restaurants in the area, and Nerja is only a short taxi journey away. The area is quite hilly so a car is a must. All in all a lovely place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you had a great time in Banoo Villa. We think that a car is only needed if you want to go up into the mountains and explore the more rural areas. Most of our guests do not need a car because everything they need for a a good holiday is within walking distance e.g. Nerja Town, excellent beaches, mini-market and local restaurants.

Gorgeous villa with great mountain and sea views

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully kept villa with great mountain and sea views. The information pack was really helpful. A short walk to the beach and a bus ride to Nerja town. A special thanks to Emma and Andrew who were extremely helpful and only an email/call away. I would definitely recommend Banoo Villa - its a great villa to travel from and explore too.

a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Spain for the past four years and always booked a villa. As we are a party of ten we have to be careful about location as we do not have transport and this can cause a problem. Having read the reviews I can say that the Banoo Villa did not disappoint. It is a lovely villa very clean and has everything you need.The information pack was very informative and very useful. The villa was a short walk to the beach and a bus ride away from the town, although we did walk to town on a few occasions which took about 40 minutes. We have not stayed in a villa before that had the bonus of a choice of restaurants within walking distance. There was a mini supermarket which was walkable, and next door to this we were able to book the free shuttle bus to the Water Parc. There were other trips available to book if required. If you go into Nerja town you can get buses to venture further. If we had to pick a negative, the children said the pool was smaller than they had hoped but still big enough for the six teenagers to use it all day, everyday and have lots of fun. Emma and Andrew were a phone call away and helped us sort out a minor problem which we encountered during our stay. Everything considered this was the best villa we have hired for cleanliness, comfort and location. We would recommend it.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property far exceeded even our most optimistic expectations. Three generations of our family spent last week in Banoo Villa and everyone of us would return there in a heartbeat. It would take far too long to list here all of the villas qualities but that list would certainly echo all the comments made in previous reviews.

We would however, like to make special mention of how easy Emma and Andrew (villa's owners) were to deal with. They were extremely friendly and helpful from the outset and even when our return flights were threatened by the French Air Traffic Controllers' strike they were prepared to accommodate us until we could rebook our flights. Please do not hesitate to book Banoo Villa as you will definitely not be disappointed.

Frances and Don,

Newcastle upon Tyne.

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.
