Parador de Nerja - Modern hotel overlooking the Mediterranean (4*)
The Parador in Nerja is one of the few exceptionally modern in style properties but it still packs an impressive punch with its enviable location and superb views. The building takes the form of an ‘L-shape’ comprising the original construction as well as a more contemporary section. The extensive and well-tended gardens of the Parador de Nerja overlook the sea and contain a large outdoor pool. This delightful setting provides an absolutely ideal location for cooling off in the height of summer and is just generally perfect for those wanting to relax. Guests staying here can bask in the sunshine whilst enjoying the spectacular views, which span over and across the cliff tops capturing the beautiful scenery and coastal landscapes below. This Parador also has its own private lift giving access to the beach immediately below. All the very comfortable bedrooms have spacious balconies or patios with sea views.
- Don’t forget that this Parador has its own private lift, found just to the side of the swimming pool, which will take you directly down on to the golden sands below.
- If you have opted to stay in one of the superior rooms with spa bath, you can have breakfast ordered to your room and eat al fresco on your very own terrace. What a perfect way to start the day!
- If you require a room with easy access, some of the rooms on the ground floor – specifically some of the ‘Double-bedded rooms with spa bath’ and ‘Twins (easy access)’ – have handholds, rails and some seats for assistance in the bathrooms.
- The lovely town of Nerja and the 'Balcon de Europa', the panoramic walkway, are only a 5-minute stroll away. Nerja is mainly a Spanish resort and it retains a lot of its original charm.
-Kettles can be requested from reception.
The highly regarded modern Parador de Nerja stands in the midst of green cliff-top gardens above the golden beaches and azure sea of the Costa Tropical, about 60 km to the east of Málaga. The coast around Nerja, with its coves and sandy beaches nestling beneath cliffs, is a paradise for lovers of sun and sea, and the area is particularly popular with scuba divers. With the dramatic mountains of the Sierra de Almijara rising behind the coast, Nerja is also proving a popular centre for walkers, while the Nerja Caves, with their prehistoric paintings and spectacular rock formations, are one of the most visited sites in Spain. Many Spaniards choose Nerja (and the Parador) for their summer holidays, and it’s a short stroll from the hotel to the centre of this attractive little town which still retains the authentic Andalusian feel.

Region & Cuisine
The second largest of Spain’s Autonomous Communities, Andalusia occupies a major part of the southern half of the country. The region’s eight provinces extend from the Portuguese border in the west, north to the neighbouring regions of Extremadura and Castilla La Mancha and to Almería, bordering Murcia, in the east.
Inevitably, Andalusia will be best known to many people for its beaches, notably along the Mediterranean ‘Costa de Sol’ and the Atlantic ‘Costa de la Luz’, and the coast certainly encompasses a good part of the region’s natural wealth. This is no doubt largely due to the exceptional climate – one of the warmest in Europe – that prevails all along the coastline, with hot dry summers, winters with mild temperatures and many ‘mini regions’ boasting their own microclimates. But it is a mistake to associate Andalusia only with its ‘Costas’, for this is a region that offers the visitor virtually everything in terms of history, art and nature.
Scenically, Andalusia is a land of contrasts. For example, in the province of Granada in winter one can experience 22°C on the coast and travel just 33 km north into the Sierra Nevada mountains to find a temperature of 10°C below zero. Further east , in the province of AlmerÍa, is an area unique in Europe – the Tabernas desert, where many of the ‘Spaghetti Westerns’ were filmed. To the north of Granada is the province of Jaén, the land of the olive with over 50 million olive trees planted and olive oil providing the main source of wealth in the province. Further south, some thirty municipalities form the famous ‘route of the white towns’, a string of picturesque little towns and villages extending across the northern part of the provinces of Cádiz and Málaga and all displaying the same picture- postcard white architecture so typical of rural Andalusia. Over 17% of the region of Andalusia is classified as a protected natural area, with its two national parks of Doñana and Sierra Nevada particularly well known for the preservation of their rich variety of flora and fauna.
Cádiz, Seville, Córdoba, Granada, Málaga – all these historic Andalusian cities display countless examples of the rich architectural and artistic legacy from over eight centuries of Moorish occupation of this region. Pride of place must go to the most emblematic monument in Granada (the capital of Spain’s last Moorish kingdom) – the incomparable Alhambra with its adjoining Generalife gardens, a unique complex of palaces, fortresses and royal quarters making this one of the most fascinating, and most visited, monuments in the world.
An essential feature of Andalusian art, and life, is of course the form of music and dance known as flamenco, an artistic expression of the most deeply rooted Andalusian culture. The precise origin of flamenco is unknown, but certainly it has Moorish influences and many of its most famous practitioners, both past and present, have been of gypsy origin. Wherever you are in Andalusia you are likely to hear flamenco, whether at an organised concert, or coming from inside someone’s house, or simply an impromptu performance in a village square. It’s in everyone’s blood, and it’s delightful.
Given the immense area of this region, gastronomic diversity best describes the cuisine of Andalusia. The so-called ‘Mediterranean diet’, with its basis of olive oil and considered by many experts to be the healthiest in the world, has its origin here. One of Spain’s most famous products, the Iberian Jabugo ham, is produced in Huelva province with the very finest hams reputedly cured ‘in a certain position in a certain room of a certain house in Huelva’. Gazpacho, the cold soup made with tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, bread and garlic originated in Andalusia and is found throughout the region as is ‘ajoblanco’, a delicious variation on gazpacho. Fruit and vegetables grow in profusion along the coastal region: mountains of strawberries in Huelva province; oranges, lemons, tropical and sub-tropical fruit (mango, papaya, banana, avocado) in Málaga and Granada provinces, and many varieties of vegetable in Almería province. In the mountains further inland, game dishes include partridge, rabbit, venison and wild boar, while anywhere near the sea you will find one of the most popular of all Andalusian dishes – ‘pescaito frito’ or mixed fried fish.
Not particularly renowned for the excellence of its wines, Andalusia does however produce the finest sherries in the world (the major establishments can be visited in Jerez de la Frontera) and – especially in Málaga province – several delicious dessert wines.
