“Fantastic relaxing enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

we stayed at the villa for 2 weeks with our family and 4 teenagers. What a surprise to see where the villa was and we were amazed. It was fantastic and although you follow a track up the mountain it is well worth the effort. All around views and amazing weather. The pictures on the website don't do the views justice. You have to be there to see.
We were also amazed that we didn't want to leave the villa for too long. The kids loved the pool and games shack and didn't get bored with all the games available to play.
Visits to Competa and surrounding villages were amazing and fantastic food on offer.
The villa is so well equipped you will want for nothing and the local shop down in the village has everything one would need.
Using the washing machine and dish washer made the holiday even better and we brought all clean clothes homes.
I would highly recommend a stay here at the Villa - Amazing time , Amazing place. We will go back as soon as we can.
Thank You for letting us stay in your wonderful home in Spain

“amazing holiday”
Reviewed September 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Myself, husband, 2 teenager daughters and 7 year old daughter stayed in this lovely villa for 8 days, communication with anthony before the holiday was excellent and gave us great tips and advice which was needed as i booked everything myself and it was the first time doing so and was nervous about it. We had'nt been abroad in 6 years and was a much needed holiday and we loved it, ali met us shortly before we arrived at the villa and brought us to it and had groceries bought for us as we arrived late, that was a godsend and we then could relax that night, the villa was brilliant and there were toiletries including shampoos, sun factors, moisturizers and more there for us, even headache tablets in the first aid kit if needed. wifi was great, we loved the games shack and spent few nights in there with kids playing pool and on the wii, we just loved the pool and with the high temperatures that week the pool was used a lot. the views from this place are gorgeous and it was amazing waking up in the morning and looking from our bedroom balcony, we hired a car and traveled to the local village of competa twice and mingled with the locals, had lovely meals and wine there, the locals were very friendly and found an english/irish bar which the husband could watch the football in on his 40th birthday which we celebrated over there, so he was a happy man. We also traveled to the beach and called into lidl on way home to stock up on food. We used the barbeque a few times and had dinner al fresco which we loved. Air conditioning in the villa was great, there was loads of dvd's and board games/cards there which we used and was great to keep the kids entertained, i would highly recommend this villa for any family wanting to escape to the sun and relax in peace and unwind. we didnt want to come home and would love to come back again. thanks for everything

“Luxury Villa up a quiet track in a beautiful national park location”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Wonderful villa in a breathtaking location. The villa is very well equipped with a super outside area and stunning views. The villa is up a dirt track so hire a suitable vehicle -ours was a skoda yeti from Hertz - and enjoy being up in the mountains.

“Even better second time around”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

This is the only villa we have returned to in 25 years of renting accommodation, and that is testimony to the quality of this house and the hospitality of the owners. For what is a very reasonable rental cost you get immaculately kept, spacious accommodation right on the edge of a Natural Park and with views over the Mediterranean of which you will never tire. Four bathrooms, 3 ensuite, UK TV, reliable WiFi, sat nav, table tennis, pool table, swimming pool, basketball, football, inflatables and beach towels provided along with shampoos and shower gels, a range of oils, herbs and spices in the kitchen, all the kitchen equipment and utensils you will ever need, an emergency fridge stocked with drinks.........and much more. It really is home from home but in a very authentic setting. If we were to own and rent a villa to guests, this is how we would do it.

“Quality accommodation in quiet location with amazing views”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We booked this villa as it was far from the madding crowd, and it offered everything we had hoped for. It is well equipped and of a high standard, and we made good use of the table tennis and games shack, where many fun evenings were spent. The wifi was a huge bonus and Sky tv appreciated especially by my dad as it meant he could watch the Tour de France! The villa is located in great countryside and as keen walkers, we had some great adventures. There are several lovely towns and villages worth visiting with some fabulous inexpensive restaurants. I highly recommend this villa but just be aware that although it is not isolated, it is a drive to the closest facilities along steep, narrow, mountainous tracks which some may find quite daunting, but others a great adventure.

“An amazing villa and fantastic holiday.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is an amazing place to stay with magnificent views.
There is nothing you could need that isn't thought of by Anthony and Andrea, from a well equipped kitchen to shower gels and shampoos in the bathrooms, towels for the pool, endless entertainment for the children as well as a lovely jug of sangria on arrival (thank you Debbie and Alick) and a well stocked pool fridge!
I have to be honest and say we hardly left the villa but when we did drag ourselves to Competa we loved it.
Everything about the villa is perfect and our two nine year old twins agreed - we will most definitely be going back.

“totally relaxing holiday in peacefull surroundings in a superbly equipped villa”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

From our initial enquiry the service was excellent, including information given, payment, directions, meet and greet and cleaning of the villa.
The villa was superb, it was exactly what was advertised with everything catered for that you would ever need. We found the free to use computer, wi fi connection and satelite tv a great bonus.The swimming pool was excellent and we spent many hours playing table tennis, pool and bat and ball games.
The BBQ was used most evenings and the views from the property were absolutely breathtaking. The nearby surrounding villages are all worth a visit to give you an insight into the traditional Spanish way of life and you could walk and explore for hours through the back streets or up the mountains. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday in a superb villa in a superb location.

Thank you for your very positive comments. The area around the Villa is well worth exploring. When you do, you are soon transported back in time. You fall under the spell of Competa's charm and the "mañana" mentality soon rubs off on you! Chill out, take a load off and Dama De La Sierra is just what the 'doctor ordered'. Thanks again for choosing our Villa for your holidays and we hope to welcome back again soon.
