Hostal Avalon

We've just returned from a short three night break to Nerja, a town just over two hours drive from Olvera, about 45kms east of Malaga on the Mediterranean coast.

We had pre-booked our accommodation at the Hostal Avalon, situated about 2kms outside of the town and what a fantastic choice it was to turn out to be.

The Hostal is very intimate with only six rooms, all with balconies and sea views.

The outside terrace offered excellent views to the east looking towards the town of Nerja.

Views above and below from the terrace.

Perfect headgear for the warm sunshine.

The house cat who constantly taunted Calcetines.

Angela, Carlos, Sara and Alex, staff at the hostal whose friendliness and smiles contributed greatly to the enjoyment of our stay.
Owners Kevin and Alix were also fantastic and we cannot speak highly enough of the delicious cuisine. From the breakfast menu to dinner, it was absolutely superb.

Not least of all David, who was so helpful with information on places to visit in the area.

Tea and scones were a treat in the afternoon.

And Calcetines came too of course.

Here, looking west on a walk along the nearby clifftops.

The Avalon is ideally situated just across the road from the beach.

We were so pleased to have found such a special place. Don't take our word for it, just read the reviews here on TripAdvisor where we'll shortly add ours.

People should pay you to come review their places and cities or villages. A friend has a popular blog about chocolate, and she receives samples from all over.
