About the property

3 bed villa with family bathroom & en suite & private pool (internet on request)

A self catering holiday in this villa is 3km from the picturesque, historic white village of Competa, yet only 20 minutes drive to the coastal resorts of Torrox & Nerja, it's the ideal location for a holiday at any time of the year. With stunning views down the valley and across to the Almijara Sierra National Park, the house is in a peaceful but not isolated location. Plenty of sun bathing areas with pool & outdoor shower. & Hot tub

The outside terrace has very comfortable seating for relaxing times out of the sun but still enjoying it with a good book to read and a glass of your favorite.

Inside archway & breakfast bar to the fully equipped kitchen inc. all the utensils and crockery usually need.

The villa has 3 bedrooms, 1 en- suite bathroom to master bedroom & 1 family bathroom.

Heading towards the beach we have Torrox pueblo white village offering something a little different from Competa village, A little busier but also boasts a lovely eating plaza with magnificent church in the foreground. Banks, shops, post office, fish market, and cake shops for the less will powered, near buy is local under ground parking is only 5minutes walk to the main Plaza.

Another 5minutes drive from the pueblo we have the coast line with a vast amount of shops and chiringuitos staggered along the beach. Great for walking along and stopping by for refreshments and enjoying the view at your own pace.

5minutes more driving east along the coast road brings you to Nerja and on the right hand side we have the Donkey sanctuary which is a charitable organisation ,everyone is welcome to go and feed the donkeys and specially welcome children for little rides at a small cost ,ideal treat to keep the kids entertained ,further on is the main town offering everything you could think of the list is endless, Buriana beaches are a little further on.

About Colin & Lizz

Hi everyone,

Liz & I have lived in Spain the last 10yrs, I am originally from the Midlands , . My priority is managing this property involving bookings, maintenance, customer liaison, meets and greets when Liz is away. as she works as a nurse back to her roots in sunny Lancaster UK Not!! she'll laugh when she reads this as I haven't told her I have edited this ,she can check my punctuation and spelling mistakes later hee hee ! :-)

Why Colin & Lizz chose Cómpeta

It has a well thought out layout as it offers sun and shade and being able to enjoy both where ever you sit.The rooms are of adequate size and it has plenty of out door space enjoying the pool & recently installed hot tub veiwing the mountain views.

What makes this villa unique

Benefits of this Villa is that it has a private short track off the road and easy to find ,so not really necessary for a 4x4 unless you want to drive off road through the country side.The track to gates is appx 70mtrs .If you ever need assistance in your holiday home,you will have only to ask Liz & I as we live close by so rest assured you will not be waiting long or be inconvenienced in your stay with us.We feel the personal touch puts our holiday makers minds at ease. ..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Look forward to seeing you again soon

We would love to return next year and bring the family.

Mountain sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks at Villa Brown. The property is very comfortable and had everything we needed. It is well maintained, clean and tidy. Colin and Lizz are excellent hosts - extremely friendly and very helpful - offering advice on local amenities and making sure the pool and hot tub were kept scrupulously clean.

There was plenty of room for our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage children (having a bedroom each is now a necessity), although we didn't spend a great deal of time indoors. We had wall-to-wall sunshine for the whole holiday - 30C+ during the day and around 20C at night - so made good use of the pool and hot tub. The property is really well laid out and very private. The rear yard gets the sun from dawn till dusk, while between them the veranda, awning and parasols provide all-day shade - and the views are spectacular.

The beds are firm but comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. Our kids were very pleased to find Wi-Fi and British TV channels.

There is plenty of room for parking. We had a hire car so took day trips to Granada, Nerja Cave and several local beaches. Competa is a beautiful little town with plenty of choice for food shopping and dining - we can highly recommend El Pilon.

Although there are a number of other villas in the area, we didn't experience any disturbances and were barely aware of any neighbours apart from the occasional passing car or dog barking in the distance. Villa Brown is an absolutely perfect place to 'get away from it all'. We were sad to leave and hope to return.

A mountain haven

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 2weeks in heaven, fabulous weather, fabulous surroundings, a villa that supplies everything that you can think of or possibly need, we normally book apartments with shared pools but this has spoilt us for life, we honestly cannot wait to return.

Both Colin & Lizz are brilliant, they are on hand to help, but not in your face.

Would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a peaceful and restful holiday.

Loved it can't wait to return.

Great villa in an ideal location. Colin, Lizz and George great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous well equipped villa in a great location. Everything from booking to arrival and departure was handled with great efficiency by Colin. The attention to detail (cleanliness, welcome pack and range/quality of utensils) is excellent. Pool is a welcome bonus and is very well maintained. Plenty of areas for sunbathing with the property benefitting from full sun all day. Appreciated the copious amount of off road parking. Really enjoyed our stay in this excellent villa. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Very relaxing in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

This villa was just what we wanted. Private with nice views . It was clean and very well equipped especialy the kitchen. Pool and hot tub very well maintained . Comfortable beds. We really liked the outside area with the arm chairs and sofas very nice shade for reading etc.

The village of Competa was only 5 minutes drive it had every thing you could wish for, nice shops and good choice of supermarkets.

Colin and Liz were perfect hosts never in your face but always there for any questions etc. Nice bar only 500 yrds away.

One of the best villas we have stayed in. In a very beautiful friendly area.
