Review Icon"The villa is really beautiful and in an idyllic location. It really is home from home and very comfortable with all the creature comforts. The scenery and views are stunning from the pretty terrace and the pool is very well maintained with excellent water quality. Ken and Esther are absolutely delightful and made us feel extremely welcome. We will definitely return."

Review Icon"First review I've written. This villa has everything that you want for a self-catering holiday. The owners are the most loveliest people you will ever meet. If in any doubt about renting from them, please don't hesitate. My husband, my son (aged 11) and I had a wonderful time. The villa is in a quiet spot overlooking the hills and a view to the Med. Very easy driving distance to anywhere on the Costa del Sol. Will recommend this villa to anyone who asks. Thankyou Ken and Esther. You have a lovely villa with wonderful views."

Review Icon"This villa was the perfect place for visiting the Costa del Sol. It was the best of both worlds - in the hills with sea views, very quiet and peaceful and private but close to shopping, restaurants, beaches and many sites and near by towns. This place has all you need for a perfect holiday - a wonderful pool, plenty of indoor space with a spacious kitchen, living room, indoor and outdoor dining areas and lovely outdoor lounging areas and breathtaking views! We are a family of four with two older teenagers and we all enjoyed ourselves there so much - it was very hard to leave! The owners are wonderful hosts and so very accommodating and helpful with many recommendations on things to do and see. It was a perfect base for us to explore the area. We did several day trips from the villa which were all an easy drive since the main motorway is minutes away down the hill. The immediate surrounding area is so lovely - small white washed villages with a very laid back charm but again very close to bigger towns with a lively nightlife. We cannot recommend this place enough and we cannot wait to return!"

Villa Description

Set in stunning countryside

Ideal for anyone wanting peace and quiet, nature and sunshine,...

Perched high on its ridge between Competa and Torrox is this lovely holiday home. Along the short drive (5Km) up from the coast the road takes you through hills covered in grapevines, fig and almonds. The windy road is well worth it once you arrive at this perfect home from home…

Once an avocado farm, it has been tastefully converted into a three bedroom holiday home – The location is ideal for anyone wanting peace and quiet, nature and sunshine, just a drive away from bars, restaurants, shops, tapas, Costa del Sol life and the many beautiful beaches it has to offer.

Set in 2 acres of grounds, and then enclosed by a surrounding wall, the other properties dotted around the hillsides are not close enough to intrude on your privacy.

Peace and quiet

Days by the pool enjoying the Mediterranean sun and air

Parking in the gravel parking area, with enough space for 6 cars, access to the property is through large double doors into this enclosed hilltop heaven….you will immediately start to unwind. The views are spectacular, looking out over two valleys, the surrounding hills, across the Mediterranean and beyond to the mountains of Morocco – The sunsets are out of this world!

South facing and built all on one level, the design is neat and uncomplicated,  making for a light and relaxed atmosphere inside and out – this is a simple yet special place..

The open plan kitchen is small, compact but cleverly designed and well enough equipped for you to whip up some delightful meals…but please note it does not have an oven.

Continuing to the living room, a spacious, light room decorated in whites and reds with fabulous views across the pool and countryside below.  Two large white sofas and comfy armchairs make this a perfect place to gather in the cooler evenings by the glass fronted wood stove for a movie, game of cards or just to enjoy the evening calm.

A simple yet special place..

We loved everything about this place, a wonderful hideaway holiday home in a beautiful location

The left “wing” of the house contains the three bedrooms and one of the bathrooms:

The main, double bedroom, is west facing looking out over the entrance to the house and the mountains beyond. This room is simply and tastefully decorated in keeping with the Andalucian theme throughout.

The other two bedrooms are one double and one twin bedded, ceilings and walls are white, floors are laid with terracotta tiles - both equally nice, the Andalucian theme continues, with good quality local, traditional furnishings.

A full bathroom with shower and full bath completes the distribution of this side of the house.

There is a second smaller bathroom with shower only, accessed from the living room, this bathroom is also home to the washing machine.

The sunsets are out of this world!

"Memories of evenings spent on the roof-top sundeck will keep us going until we return"

The interior is lovely, but most of your time will be spent outside. Dips in the pool, meals on the covered outside dining area, dozing  on one of the various terraces, you can choose sun or shade depending on your mood… Or above it all,  up on the roof-top sundeck – The perfect spot to watch the sun set and linger long into the starry night. Whichever you choose you will find comfort, relaxation and beautiful views.

There are several different seating areas to choose from, each of them lovely, both on the terrace surrounds and in the gardens and grounds. All are perfect for unwinding and enjoying the beautiful views.

And there's more! The owners have created a wonderful herb garden and there is also a wide variety of fruit trees you are welcome to pick from.

"A great base for exploring Andalucia and for accessing the smaller white villages of Competa, Archez, Frigiliana and also down to Nerja."

Around and About

This is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful and very beautiful part of Andalucía.

Excursions

  • Cómpeta has an international, cosmopolitan atmosphere these days and is a thriving little place. The ‘Jewel of the Axarquia’, the small town (population 4,000) has fabulous views of the Mediterranean from its position 700 metres above sea level in the Sierra Almijara.
  • It is a charming, flower bedecked old town with its main centre, the Plaza Almijara, dominated by a magnificent sixteenth century church. This bustling square is one of the best places to enjoy a break as it offers several bars, restaurants and pavement cafes. From the main square ancient cobbled streets snake away to reveal hidden squares, boutiques and restaurants.
  • Inland, Lake Vinuela is a man-made lake but none the less spectacular and picturesque for this. Its azure-blue waters are surrounded by rolling hills and a number of delightful villages including Alcaucin, Periana and Riogordo. Close by, the villages of Comares, Competa and Benamargosa are equally charming.
  • Pretty beaches make this the ideal place for a family outing, away from the nearby, busy coastline. Pine trees add to the sense of tranquillity and the feeling of being at one with nature, while they provide the perfect habitat for many different species of birds.
  • Picnic areas have been set out, complete with barbeque facilities, offering splendid views across the placid waters. They are only occasionally disturbed by small boats, which add a fitting splash of colour to the surroundings. All of this set against the majestic backdrop of the nearby mountains.
  • Torre del Mar is the closest major seaside resort and boasts one of the longest, and certainly one of the widest, beaches on the coast. Running parallel to its 4 kilometres of sandy beach is a splendid promenade with a wide walking area, cycle lane, grassy areas, play areas for children and, of course, numerous restaurants (including some excellent fresh fish and seafood), chiringuitos (beach bars) and other watering holes. It is very Spanish in character although, as with most places these days, you will find quite an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants. For the young at heart, there's plenty of night-long, night life too.
  • The esplanade extends all the way to the fishing port and marina at La Caleta de Velez. This area has not yet been developed and it remains very much a working port.
  • Nerja is a little further east along the coast. Much more "international" with a strong British presence (you can have a curry here ... ) it boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water.
  • Flanked by a dramatic mountain range, Sierra Almijara, to the east, the town has managed to avoid being blighted by the concrete high-rise scenario and tourist boom in some Costa del Sol resorts. The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged from its sleepy fishing village days of old with narrow, winding streets, its whitewashed houses overflowing with geraniums.
  • The heart of Nerja is its spectacular Balcón de Europa, a magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff, with sweeping panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the small coves and beaches below, against an awesome backdrop of hazy blue mountains.
  • However, Nerja's most spectacular attraction is undoubtedly its magnificent caves - a series of huge caverns stretching for almost five kilometres and home to the world’s largest stalagmite, a 32 metre high column measuring 13 metres by 7 metres at its base. Located three kilometres out of town there are archaeological treasures galore including paintings over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains.
  • One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many fabulous performances (classical and flamenco) are staged during the summer. The International Festival of Music and Dance takes place in mid July each year.
  • Further a field, Granada is, of course, a must-see city. Soaring high above is the spectacular back drop of the snow-covered Sierra Nevada mountains. And what a city lies below, a city of classical beauty, the jewel in the Spanish Crown.
  • The mesmerising Alhambra Palace and its exquisite gardens, one of the world's greatest wonders; the narrow, cobbled streets and beautiful walled gardens of the ancient Arab quarter, El Albaicín; the magnificent Cathedral, just one of many superb examples of Renaissance architecture; the caves of Sacramonte, nostalgic legacy of the gypsies.
  • A city which inspired García Lorca, Andalucía's finest poet, it is, above all, a people's city, full of life and colour, energy and fun.

Activities

  • There are many sporting activities on offer around the shores of Lake Viñuela, including horse riding, golf, hang gliding and walking. In the main these activities are offered by enterprising Brit's and other Europeans who have settled in the area.
  • La Sierra de Tejeda which rises up above 2,000 metres, offers a wealth of wonderful nature and walking possibilities.
  • Sailing and a variety of other watersports are available at the fishing port and marina, La Caleta de Velez. All major water sports are also available in Nerja including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing.
  • For golf enthusiasts, there are several excellent golf courses to choose from. Many speak highly of the course at Antequera (1½ hours away) although there are plenty of others closer by.
