Lovely rural villa, fantastic pool!

Gorgeous pool! Fantastic rural setting, lovely chilled out holiday. It's 10 minutes drive from Competa where there are a couple of supermarkets to get all the basics you need. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.

A Breathtaking Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We booked Diane & Andrew's villa on the strength of the pictures, and I have to say the villa is even more stunning in real life. It is truly idyllic.

The villa is incredibly well maintained, spotlessly clean, completely private and everything you could possibly need is there for you - Including two barbecues.

Finding the villa is a breeze too - Diane's instructions were spot on, and we were there within an hour of picking up our car in Malaga.

I'd highly recommend Villa Amapola and have left 5*, only because I can't leave 6...

Very relaxing, amazing views, home from home

  • 5 of 5

We quickly found ourselves feeling at home. The villa was very well equipped. The outdoor space had spots for every moment of day & night - from the sociable veranda, to poolside dips, to quiet spots to watch the sunset and stars emerge. Very well kept garden attracted butterflies and dragonflies, as well as a party of acrobatic bee-eaters overhead. Only a ten minute drive to Competa for bars, restaurants and cafes (+ shops), and easily under an hour to the beach, main motorway and large supermarket. This was our second time to Ampola, and again it didn't disappoint. Thoroughly recommended.

Beautiful villa in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fantastically situated, just a five minute drive from the beautiful village of Competa, and about half an hour from the coast. It is a lovely, peaceful location with wonderful views out over the valley. The villa is well equipped with comfortable beds and other facilities. The pool is great, it is secured behind a lockable gate, making the villa perfect for families.

Overall we had a lovely family holiday here. Thank you Diane and Andrew.
