This is the second time we have stayed on Punta Lara in the last year. Casa Isabel overlooks the hotels, Nerja and the sea. Just outside of Nerja, but peaceful and great views.

We rented a villa on Punta Lara, it is a modern development which is very tastefully done. The architecture is a modern Moorish style and the villa we stopped in had stunning elevated sea views. A great place to stop.
