Recommended. Review by Jerry from CA

My wife and I, who have lived in Spain and travel there often, stayed in the coastal town of Nerja (near Malaga) last year during May. We chose Nerja having driven through the town the previous year and liked what we saw. Nerja is a coastal resort town minus the high rise hotels; it's somewhat quieter, has character and is an interesting mix of Spanish and British influences. I suspect there is a higher percentage of full time British residents in Nerja than other coastal towns.

We found our apartment (Casa Charlotte) on the internet, and were impressed by its comprehensive web site that offered all the information needed to make a decision. Casa Charlotte is located in Nerja within walking distance to beach, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. You'll need a car to see the famous Nerja Caves and local villages.

Casa Charlotte is a traditional Spanish home converted into 3 apartments (we stayed on the ground floor). It's on a typical Spanish back street among the Spanish residents. It has a more Spanish feel that other parts of the town. Casa Charlotte is newly renovated with everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Lot's of space and quality furnishings. The kitchen is large, and unusually well equipped. The owner has created a really nice rooftop garden and place to sit and enjoy the town from a roof top perspective.

Of all of the things that makes Casa Charlotte special, the owner's personal attention sets it apart from a typical apartment arrangement. Frans is Belgian, speaks 4 or 5 languages including English. He meets his guests upon arrival, helps them get settled, answers all their questions, gives a quick tour around the nearby streets.

We researched the apartment offerings in Nerja, and there are many. Of the apartments we considered, we chose Casa Charlotte because of its character and value. We had a great time in Nerja and certainly recommend Casa Charlotte.

My wife (able-bodied) and I (wheelchair bound) stayed in the ground floor apartment of 'Casa Charlotte' in Nerja, Spain. This apartment was found to be suitable for myself who is confined to a wheelchair the following points should be noted:

  • Door into apt. 86cms. wide.
  • Most electrical plugs and lights easily reached from wheelchair.
  • Bathroom: Door 80cms. wide and opens out.
  • Bathroom: Roll-in-shower for people confined to wheelchair, fixed wall seat for people with limited mobility, clip on/off raised toilet seat raising seat ht. to 50cms, 2 fold up/down arms at toilet.
  • Bedroom: Two sliding doors, maximum opening 120cms, one king size bed which can be split into 2 single beds, from floor to top of mattress 52.5cms

I have stayed in hotels and self catering apartments around Europe and would rate Casa Charlotte as one of the BEST.

Great Apartment in Nerja, Spain
We just got back from three weeks in Spain and are still in a glow from all the wonderful memories (well, a few not-so-wonderful). But the highlight of our trip was a week at Casa Charlotte in Nerja on the south coast of Spain. The three apartments are roomy, modern, clean, have great kitchen area, all the amenities and located in a charming house on a cobblestone residential street in the heart of downtown Nerja. This is a real Spanish neighborhood, with the bakery, grocery, cafes, and everything you need just a few minutes away - not to mention the beautiful Nerja beaches. Right next door is El Chispa, a great little seafood place mentioned in Rick's Spain and Portugal! Our hosts, Frans and Nuttee, looked after us like their own family, even giving us a personal walking tour of the town. Nerja is a popular European tourist town but has not been spoiled by the high rise mania of most of the Costa del Sol. Casa Charlotte is a real beauty and a super home away from home. Easy day trips take you to Granada, Gibralter, or the Pueblos Blancos. Check out their website (
