Just a short drive away from bars, restaurants, shops, tapas, Costa del Sol life and more... ...
"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."
"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."
"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 was exelent .we enjoyed where it was located as we wanted total quiet and privacy,also the owners were very helpfull and even visited us in hospital.no second thoughts about returning for another holiday."

7 m x 3 m, 1.2 m - 1.9 m deep.
In open countryside, 5 minutes from Torrox in La Axarquía region (Province of Málaga).
From 980 € to 1,470 € per week.
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.
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.
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 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."
