About Liz

We are a family of four who enjoy holidays in the sun with a variety of activities nearby to keep us all entertained ! Given that we live in West Yorkshire, where a summer wardrobe is not really necessary, we have been looking for a holiday home with a warm climate and something for us all to enjoy. We are delighted to have just bought Villa Carlota and find it has everything we wanted and more! Come to Competa and try it, you may find us - lounging by the pool in the sun reading a book & lighting the BBQ (my husbands choice) eating out (my choice) trekking out on a horse in the National Park (my youngest daughters choice) or shopping and enjoying water sports in Nerja (my teenage daughters choice).

Liz purchased this villa in 2015

Why Liz chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Villa Carlota is different to the other properties we have stayed in or looked at in Competa it has a comfortable and unique feel about it with the bedroom in the tower ! We love the fact that it is only 3 hours on a plane to get to a brilliant climate and that the Villa is within an hours drive of Malaga airport. We find the privacy of the Villa relaxing but with easy access to the village with all its facilities and the sea which we love.

What makes this villa unique

Competa which has been called the pearl of the Axarquia is in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda and Almijara mountain ranges and therefore enjoys stunning views

not only of the Mountains but the Mediterranean too. It is a diverse community of nearly 4000 inhabitants and is known for it locally produced muscatel wines and has a great range of shops and facilities including a chemist, banks, newsagent , small super markets a Saturday market and even an Ice cream parlour !

Fantastic villa in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Villa Carlotta is simply superb! In a great location out on the campo, affording spectacular views, this well appointed villa is a great home from home. Comfortably sleeping 8 (although we had a party of 6).

Ok, so there's no phone signal and the wifi's a bit temperamental (hence the 4 stars). Clearly the former is outside of Liz's control, but hey, you're on holiday, so what's the rush?

5km out of Competa and a little more for neighbouring Canillas, Villa Carlota is close enough to humanity for when you need it and far enough away for when you don't. Use Maria's taxis when you need to get about (her card's in the great welcome binder -and she speaks excellent English for those of us who's Spanish is embarrassingly limited).

Would categorically recommend the house to anyone. You won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for reviewing your stay and your recommendation. We are delighted you enjoyed the Villa and your holiday. Thanks too for pointing out the temperamental wifi. As its been a strong and reliable connection to date Im arranging for the broadband company to check it out. You are right the phone signal is not good and difficult to address. There is usually reception on the coffee table and the table on the terrace so ill ask Christine and Malcolm to point this out to future guests.

Beautiful property and setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this well maintained, well equipped property. The views were wonderful and the villa was very spacious outside and in. The pool was just the right temperature and ideal for fun with the children. Will definitely make another visit.

What a tonic!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa Carlota with 4 girlfriends and we had an absolute ball. Between us we have 11 children and 7 dogs and felt we were due a rest!

Apart from a couple of short outings, we stayed at the villa and sunbathed, swam, read, ate, drank and had a daily siesta. The villa was perfect for us. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, the beds were very comfy and we had everything we needed for our stay. Throughly recommended for families too as the pool is secure.

My only regret is that we didn't 'have time' to have a good look around the area. We vaguely mooted the idea of visiting the lost village but couldn't summon the energy!! That will keep for another trip in the cooler months.

We ate out at El Pilon in Competa which was fantastic (ask for a table on the Terrace), lovely friendly waiters/waitresses and great food. They even gave us a free shot as we left, which set us up nicely of the rest of the evening!

We telephoned for a taxi (can't remember the name but the card is in the folder) when we ate at El Pilon and a lovely chap collected us, with 15 minutes notice. He refused our offer to pay on arrival and just said to call when we had finished eating so he could collect us and we could pay then. I'm not sure that would happen in the UK!

It truly couldn't have been better and Liz was fantastic at getting back to me with any questions prior to our visit.

Villa Carlota is an Excellent Rental Vacation Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in our two week stay at Villa Carlota. The property itself was well equipped and with the excellent swimming pool met all our needs ,the location in the mountains made it well situated for the small town of Competa and all in all made for an excellent family holiday.

I /we rate this property and location as a 5 star rental,,,,we had a great time !

Lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic 10 days in Villa Carlota. Villa was very clean and spacious and well equipped. The pool was lovely and refreshing . Competa is very nice and beautifull village and there is several other little villages near by where you can visit. We visited also in the caves of Nerja and Alhambra in Granada. Thank you Liz for your hospitality. We absolutely recommend this villa for your holiday!

Villa Carlota oli todella upea huvila. Maisemat olivat sanoinkuvaamattoman upeat, niitä jaksoi tuijotella pidempäänkin. Ympärillä oli todella hiljaista, joten jos rauhaa kaipaa niin siellä sai todella olla rauhassa. Sääkin oli juuri sopiva kesäkuun alussa, ei ollut vielä liian kuuma. Emme tarvinneet altaan lämmitystä, vesi oli ilman lämmitystäkin suomalaiseen makuun sopivaa. Suosittelemme jos kaipaa rauhallista luksus lomaa!

Regards

Beautiful Location & Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fully kitted out & spacious enough for a large group and we were able to entertain friends on a couple of occasions as well. The pool was a great relief from the hot sun. When you're not swimming or snoozing you can appreciate the beautiful views. No need to go to the beach - once you've filled the cupboards with food (& drinks!) you can toss the car keys away and enjoy the serenity
