Lovely and secluded but not at all far from the beaches or beautiful Competa
We were met as promised and guided to the property. Everything was explained to us regarding pool, waste etc. Tony had provided information on what was available locally to see and do and after that left us to our own devices save for the cheery hellos if we passed at the gate. Very unobtrusive and very responsive to the minor issue we had with the WiFi. We had a fantastic time both out and about and when we had days at the house to relax. The welcome pack was very gratefully received. I would thoroughly recommend staying here and if back in the area would look to book again without consideration to anywhere else.
Tony and Sandy's villa is a superb getaway, sat in a beautiful quiet valley
Tony and Sandy are very friendly and welcoming , and live nearby, should you need them.
The house is spacious and has everything you need for a comfortable holiday.
There was even a welcome pack of essentials like milk, bread, cheese etc.
Love it to bits
This was our second visit to this super villa, our first having been last October.
On both occasions we have found the villa ideal for our needs; it is in excellent condition, well appointed and Sandy and Tony (aided by Shane) are the perfect landords - reacting swiftly when you need something and virtually invisible otherwise.
The villa is ideal for couples or for those with young children (pool is fenced off) who want a quiet, relaxing holiday spent in beautiful Spanish countryside. The village of Competa is a short drive away and will cater for all of your day to day shopping needs - in our three week stay we only had to venture beyond Competa on one occasion - and has a good selection of bars and restaurants.
The internet connection in the villa is pretty good (not up to streaming though) and all the standard UK TV channels are available.
The pool is on the small side but ideally sized for young children and those wishing to use it to cool down or splash around rather than as part of a fitness regime. The fact that it is heated meant that we were able to use it throughout our October stay.
This is not a location for those wishing a lively nightlife within walking distance of their accommodation but if you want tranquil days and are prepared to take a short drive to eat out in the evenings then it is to be thoroughly recommended.
Make no mistake - we will be returning (sorry Sandy and Tony we are already planning !!)
Relax & let the world go by
Our stay at Tony's villa was absolutely great, the pool is secluded & has a perfect orientation to sun bath all day long, the owner keeps the pool between 28 to 30 degrees There is an area which over-looks the valley & hills which is the ideal place for breakfast. The villa was clean & all appliances worked, the owner is nearby should anything go wrong (nothing did during our stay) The coast is only 25mins away at Torrox which has a beautiful beach & the town of Competa is ten minutes away.
Whether you are young/old with or with or without children I would thoroughly recommend this villa, we will certainly be returning in the very near future.

Starry, starry nights!
Down a slightly hair-raising track, this villa is perfect for you if you want peace, quiet, hot sun, starry nights, restful views of hillsides dotted with villas and olive groves.
We hardly ventured out - except a day at the Alhambra - because what more could we want? Cool villa, hot sun, cool pool for splashing around in...
Tony and Sandy settled us in and then just let us get on with it. Would highly recommend this villa.
We were looking for a quiet place, near our friends in Competa, where we could catch up with our daughters who had been working away all summer; it was the . Initially, we chose the villa for the price - it was so reasonable and to be honest we weren't expecting anything special. However, we were so bowled over by this brilliant home from home. The attention to detail in the decorations and all the little things provided made life so relaxing. Comfortable beds, great kitchen, dining and living areas; shady terrace, beds for sunbathing around a super swimming pool. Everything we could have wanted had been thought of (including discreet washing line tucked away so it didn't spoil the view!) Tony and Sandy (owners) were there if needed but we had total privacy. The track to the villa took a little getting used to but after a few days we were whizzing along! There are great restaurants and supermarket, fruit shop etc a few minutes drive away in Competa; do go to the town square for morning coffee or evening drink it is beautiful. There are interesting places to visit both in the mountains and on the coast - our girls persuaded us to take them to one of the shopping malls on the coast great selection of things for those wanting to shop and even my husband said it wasn't too bad! We heartily recommed the villa to anyone; families, couples, friends, it is a great place; all you need is a carry on bag for luggage as everything else is there! We definitely want to return.
