Fuente del Baden is a quiet, fairly large urbanisation at the eastern end of Nerja on the N-340 coastal road and, in the main, is made up of detached villas, many with their own swimming pools.
The local bus does pass close by but a car would be a good idea, especially for those with children or family members who are not fond of a lot of walking or who are not so mobile.
Although quite large, Fuente del Baden itself has absolutely no facilities, not a single shop. Not even an estate agent!
There is a large Supersol supermarket within easy walking distance.
The town centre, Balcón de Europa, is about 3km away.
