“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed September 5, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a beautiful location, breathtaking views and the most well equipped villa we have stayed in ( and we've stayed in quite a few !) communication with the owners was great, with them giving perfect directions for arrival and loads of really great local hints and tips. The local villages and towns were lovely, quaint and welcoming. We only stayed a week but made full use of the pool as the weather was brilliant. I would recommend this villa to friends and family and would love to visit again maybe trying other times of the year.

“Beautiful, Serene & Sunny Villa”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was a quiet and serene villa, tucked away in the hills above Competa and all the better for it because it was quite and exactly what we craved with a lovely, homely and intimate atmosphere. The villa was clean and well laid out with a well sized pool and all the conveniences that you need to ensure that your day runs smoothly such as washing machine, air-con TV etc. It was also blessed with perhaps the single best wifi signal that I have ever experienced abroad, with the signal reaching all the way up the valley. Very impressive. The views are stunning and the daily routine of the goatherd and his goats moving up and down the valley was charming with the sound of their bells and baa-ing. Jane and Vas are the most helpful and communicative rental owners that I have come across and will go all out to ensure that your stay is both comfortable and trouble free and this was our experience, they were able to offer advice on what to do and where to go. Absolutely recommend this villa but make sure that your hire car has good ground clearance as the road to the villa is steep, narrow and bumpy, which made it more of an adventure and well worth the odd jolt.

“Peaceful villa in a stunning area”
Reviewed June 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

It's a bit of a 'hairy' drive to the villa, but that's the price you pay for such peace and quiet!!

The caretaker was friendly and helpful. The villa well-stocked with essentials.

Lovely pool and comfortable decor inside. Wonderful mountain views and a daily sighting of the goat-herder in the valley winding his way around the paths. Stunning.

Great local towns in Compete, Nerja and Frigiliana.

“Wonderful winter break ”
Reviewed January 19, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed in this lovely villa in mid January, it was everything we was looking for , quiet and cosy. We had lovely sunshine during the day and where it turned chilly in the evening we would light the fire using the pine cones we collected on our trips out.
The owners even helped me arrange a birthday surprise by booking a lovely restaurant in competa ( el pampano which was amazing ) a birthday cake and taxi to and from the villa which we were amazed that it turned up and on time as the villa can be tricky to find but Jenny (caretaker) had been In and sorted it all out , which I feel was above and beyond her normal job and I could not of been more grateful , she had sorted taxi, cake and restaurant (we did leave the card for the taxi in the villa ) .
You are met by Jenny or carl who take you to the villa when you arrive and I did think "ohh my lord where are we going " but it is sitting in a lovely valley, I used to sit and watch the goat-hearder on the opposite side of the valley , collect his goats and sheep and take them for there walk up the mountain and hours later he would bring them back, we even started to notice individual ones.
The villa was clean and bright and had everything you needed, we would definitely return given the chance.
There are lots of maps and information in the villa to help you get around.
The only disappointing thing was we couldn't use the pool as the water was far to cold. ( Well it was January ).
The sunsets from this villa are amazing to sit and watch with a nice glass of vino in your hand , I would highly recommend it.

We didn't get a 4x4 but wished we had , not only for the villa but also for when we were out exploring the area as its beautiful and we did most of the area that vas the owner had given us the information or recommended we try to go or see.

All in all we had a lovely weeks stay and in all honesty we really didn't want to come home.

“A LOVELY LOCATION”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A very nice place to stay and despite the excitement for my passengers of the car journey on the track well worth the effort getting down to the villa. We were lucky that a good length of concrete (not the flatest mind) had just been put down. Everything you needed was there at the Villa and you could not ask for a better location either. Ideal for couples, with family or friends. Not too far from anywhere and a great location to chill out in. Had a couple of barbies and some nice meals in and out. Pool was clean and equipment on hand should you need to dig out the odd bug that decided to have a swim! 4 adults had plenty of room and would happily advise GO THERE!

“Lives up to its name”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely 2 week stay during August. (family of 4 with 2 daughters aged 13 & 11).
We arrived after midnight on a Saturday night and were met by Jenny and shown to the villa. Jenny was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. When we awoke the next morning with day light we were able to appreciate the stunning setting. From the villa there are lovely views across the valley which is planted largely with Mangos & advocado bushes. From the pool side I was able to do some bird watching and saw a good variety of birds including hoopoe, turtle dove, blue rock thrush, a flock of bee eaters, and some very big birds of prey flying very high and will remain unidentified.
The location of the villa suited us well as it was quiet but still only about a 20 minute drive to the coast and to the lovely town Competa.
Vas and Jane provided lots of helpful information and were very quick to come back to us with any query and nothing was too much trouble for their caretakers Jenny & Carl.
We would all recommend this villa and would love to go back.

Thank you Ben for your kind words and for painting such a lovely picture of the bird life that you discovered during a season when we thought that the birds kept a low profile. In the autumn, winter and spring months there are even greater opportunities to see wild life and exotic fauna and to take in the beauty of our region at an unhurried pace.

“Beautiful villa”

people found this review helpful

Stayed in this lovely villa for 2 weeks in July. The villa was fabulous and the setting very peaceful. The mountain views were amazing. A perfect spot if you just want peace and quiet. The drive down the track to the villa was a bit of a challenge, but I did get used it by the end of the holiday!! It didn't detract from the enjoyment of staying there. Competa and Torrox Costa were within easy reach - lots of restaurants to enjoy.
