“Lovely relaxing break”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

just returned from our stay in Casa Eleni. The villa & pool were lovely. The villa is about a 5 minute drive from the village of Competa with lots of pretty whitewashed bars & restaurants in cobbled streets. Some of the streets are quite steep so may not be suitable for people with disabilities though. The villa has 3 bedrooms (2 doubles & bunk beds), 2 bathrooms, a lounge & kitchen. We liked the fact that we weren't overlooked by other properties & the views across the mountains are beautiful. We enjoyed sitting around the pool drinking a few beers & trying out the local Competa wine (quite sweet, but lovely with lemonade). There was even an outside bar & drinks fridge which was a nice touch.
There are only a few niggles; we arrived at about 3pm on the Saturday, but there are no shops open until 5pm, so it would have been nice to have had a few basics supplied (water, milk, bread etc) until we could go shopping. The dirt track leading to the villa was tricky to negotiate without scraping the bottom of the car, but I'm not sure what could be done to resolve this though... There are only 4 sun beds, which would be a problem if there are more of you (there were only 3 of us so it wasn't an issue).
The biggest issue we found though was the lack of air conditioning in the villa. It was so hot, particularly at night, we found it hard to sleep & sat outside to cool down during most nights. Overall, we had a lovely relaxing time. I would recommend the area to friends if you want to chill out & get away from it all

“So Relaxing We Lost Track Of Time ... An Absolutely Perfect Holiday !”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This really is the perfect villa in a naturally beautiful location, a few minutes drive from the gorgeous village of Competa.

My husband and I stayed here and enjoyed absolutely perfect weather. The accommodation is everything you might wish for, a real home from home, and is fully equipped for everything you might ever need.

If you are able, do try to get up to watch the sun rise across the valley and watch it travel across the entire mountainside. In the late evenings you will hear the goats being brought home again through the valley below the villa to be milked. They all have tinkling bells! Other local residents include a peacock and a neighbouring villa has a friendly horse
( not a dog) guarding her gates! There were three nests of baby birds and hatchlings at the villa when we stayed, all demanding to be fed constantly by their parents, which was lovely to see up close

You will relax the very second you arrive, and discover complete peace over the course of your holiday, rising only to eat and drink! We lost complete track of time most days. Largely because the villa gets full sun all day, and we found it was still very hot for sunbathing up to 7 or 8pm. The local village of Competa has a really great range of eateries, and we did our very best to eat our way through them all. Its not at all overpriced. Even the local shops are well priced if you want to self cater and not drive down to the supermarkets at the bottom of the mountain. If you do though, there are several big well known ones, stocked with everything you will want.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Casa Eleni for a beautifully relaxing holiday, and hope to go back soon.
