A little piece of Heaven
Two weeks of peace in the most stunning location . The views are spectacular. The drive up from Torrox is breathtaking with mountain views all the way . The villa itself is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly equipped. We used the outdoor kitchen a lot which was perfect for BBQ s and storing beer in the outdoor fridge. Inside the decor is clearly newly decorated with a new kitchen and large fridge with ice. Bedrooms are lovely as well as bathrooms all with air conditioning. We spent the days by the pool and ate in the evening on a separate terrace where we could watch the moon rise. You need a car as it’s too far to walk anywhere . However, it was very easy to get a taxi into Cómpeta and back to eat in the restaurants . We recommend Pacos and La Taberna de Oscar. Nerja is lovely for a visit. We thoroughly recommend the villa and Kath and Shaun made sure we had everything we needed. A fabulous holiday .
This is a beautiful house with everything you could wish for, for a perfect holiday. The house has wonderful views, is peaceful being in the mountains but easily accessible. The beach, shops and towns are all within a 30 minutes drive. Relaxing terraces enable you to make the most of the fantastic summer weather and the outdoor kitchen is wonderful for al fresco dining!
Shaun and Kath were welcoming and accommodating without being intrusive and nothing was too much trouble. Our dogs were made welcome as well and loved exploring the large grounds.
We had a fantastic couple of weeks in their beautiful home.
Thank you Kath and Shaun.

We had a week at Villa Barbaro and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Its in an amazing location with awesome views and close to the delicious restaurants in Competa. Fantastic heated pool with sun on it all day and loads of tranquil shady spots to cool off. The villa is fully equipped with everything you need and everything works. Its only a hundred meters or so from the Competa road so is no problem to access. As far as we're concerned this is the perfect mountain villa getaway!
Villa with great views
We enjoyed our vacation in the villa. The view from the terrace is fantastic. Competa is a great little town where you can shop very well, but also stay for a while.
Séjour fantastique dans un cadre très agréable pour les amoureux de la montagne et de la mer. Très belle maison, très fonctionnelle avec cadre à couper le souffle. Villa fonctionnelle, réellement très bien équipée avec des propritaires très sympa. A recommander sans aucune hésitation. Merci encore à Shaune et Kate pour leur disponibilité et leur gentillesse.
Villa Barbaro is 50 minutes drive from Malaga airport.Only 20 minutes from the local beaches at Torrox & Nerja The house is 200 metres off the main Torrox to Cómpeta road and is easily approached by car down a well maintained concrete drive. There's ample & safe parking for at least 3 vehicles within the gated grounds. It is ideally situated within easy driving distance of both villages. Just 3km from Competa and 12km from the coast at Torrox, the villa is in a peaceful location overlooking the Sierra Almijara national park. The entrance to the park is 15 minutes walk from the villa There's excellent walking/hiking in this area, also great opportunities for horse riding & pony trekking for all abilities. For the truly adventurous, kayaking and canonying can be arranged with a local company. For keen golfers there are two 18 hole golf courses within easy driving distance. Granada & the Alhambra Palace are under 2 hour's drive and skiing in the Sierra Nevada's is just 2 and a half hours away. Cordoba and Seville are also about the same travelling time and are still a suitable distance for day trips. this is a great place to explore the Axarquia & the Costa Tropical, this is where 'Real Spain' can still be found.
Other Activities: Quad biking, Bird Watching
Golf: A stay in the Villa Barbaro is ideal for combining a golfing holiday whilst experiencing Andulacia. The Costa Del Sol is second to none for it's choice of golf courses, catering for every range of handicap, high or low.
Just 25 minutes from Villa Barbaro is Baviera Golf Club. Designed by Jose Maria Canzares, it's an 18 hole, 6100 yard, par 71 course, with driving range. The course is surrounded by pleasant gardens and lakes, with views of the nearby mountains and sea. This sets enough challenges for the low handicaper but is not too difficult for the moderate golfer, making it ideal for couples, or as they say, 'doesn't spoil a good day'.
A further 20 minutes drive towards Malaga you'll find Anoreta Golf Club, another Canizares designed course. This 18 hole, 6538 yard, par 71course sets a slightly more difficult challenge due to water hazards being featured on 11 of the 18 holes, but still makes for a very enjoyable round of golf. There are also numerous other courses within one hour's drive so you'll certainly be spoilt for choice!
After enjoying your round of golf wherever you may choose, you can return to the villa and relax with a refreshing drink on the terrace. Take in the beautiful mountain views whilst pondering those missed puts and end the day with a pleasant evening out at one of the excellent restaurants in the nearby village of Competa or Torrox.
