About the property

Villa in Competa, Costa del Sol - Villa with Private Pool and Sea Views

This charming villa set high up in the hills, has been lovingly converted and offers panoramic views over avocado and olive groves to the mountains beyond. Less than 3km from the white washed village of Competa, Casa de las Flores is particularly appealing for keen walkers who will relish the challenge of trekking through the surrounding Sierras de Almijara and Tejeda. The colourful gardens brim with an abundance of vivid flowers. Geraniums, petunias, nasturtiums overflow from bright painted pots and jasmine and bougainvillea cascade down from trellis onto the patio and small terraces. The villa is full of character and has a comfortably furnished living – dining room, with vaulted, beamed ceiling, shuttered windows and a wood burning stove. Whilst the villa has its own pool, for those who prefer a refreshing dip in the sea, the sandy beaches of Torrox Costa and Nerja are just a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear David

We had a great time at your villa and will certainly recommend it to others and return again ourselves. It suited the 3 of us perfectly. If all 4 of us can make a holiday then we would be interested in your other nearby villa.

Linda was really helpful with local advice etc. as well as leaving us some water and milk on Sunday when even Eroski was closed.

Thanks again for the use of your villa and already looking forward to the next time.

Regards, Steve

Just got back from a fantastic week in your Villa in Competa and rather than leave message in visitors book would like to thank you personally for letting us stay in such a wonderfull place , Sandra and Myself have stayed in Competa now 6 times over last 5 years but always in town houses in village , but with the addition this time of our Grandaughter (8) we decided a pool was a must, we all fell in love with the house as soon as we walked in, and must admit had tears in our eyes when we left.

Great Villa in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Visited Casa De Las Fores for one week in June. We were looking for a villa in a quiet location where we could chill out and enjoy the view. We weren't disappointed as the property is in a superb location in the hills near Competa.

The road from the coast is one of the more interesting drives that we've had in recent times. Climbing constantly for around 10 miles without a straight stretch of more than 100 yards. Its takes some concentration but the result is well worth the effort. The views around Competa are simply stunning. The village itself is a classic 'pueblo blanco'. Karen provided us with the location of a great supermarket on the way from the airport but there is also a Euroski City in Competa that is very well stocked for 'topping up'.

On arrival we found the villa was just as advertised, in fact the pictures don't really do it justice. The interior is well equipped with everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. The villa has been equipped in a very tasteful manner and has a really homely feel. We like to cook and the kitchen was well up to our needs. We didn't watch much television as the view from the patio was much more appealing but there is a good internet based TV service available.

The weather was particularly good during our stay so we spent a good deal of time outdoors. The patio and outdoor areas are very pleasant and the pool was a godsend in the heat. The villa is equipped for indoor or outdoor dining and we used the barbecue which was very clean.

Walking around the local area revealed just what a beautiful place this is. For anyone wanting to get away from the crowds Axarquia is a must. We really do wish we'd stayed a fortnight.

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely - nicely furnished and comfortable, as well as very clean. It was so relaxing to be able to sit and look across the mountains with no noise as a distraction. On some evenings, we could watch the clouds roll into the valley, and below the villa, so we really were above the clouds. At night when it was dark and we came inside, the living room was cosy and relaxing with the lamps on, just a perfect end to the days. We have visited the area many times so didn't do a lot of travelling, although Competa was nice with some good restaurants. The only thing that my husband didn't like were the roads .... but that's Spain up in the mountains for you!! My teenage son was very happy as the wifi was great, so all in all everyone happy.

Ideal holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa - beautiful setting, lovely pool and outside area for relaxing and chilling, comfortable, clean home from home. We loved Competa - plenty of good restaurants, not too quiet, not too busy. Would definitely love to go again!

The perfect place to relax - just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my wife spent ten days in this wonderful villa. It was everything that we had hoped for and more and we really didn't want to leave. Karen is lovely and very helpful so everything was very easy. Spent most days reading and relaxing by the pool in a totally peaceful environment and loved the smell of the honeysuckle, fantastic!😀

Very peaceful and tranquil. Views are amazing. Good walking areas.

A car is a must. Competa is lovely. We walked in a couple of times, wouldn't be too keen in the dark though!!

Television and wifi were very good.

Pool very clean. Very well equipped villa.

Good communication with owners re directions to it. Geoff and Janice who were looking after it were extremely helpful.
