Villa in Competa, Costa del Sol Inland, Spain - Country Villa With Heated Pool, AirCon, Free WiFi, Quiet Location, Close To All Amenities
Casa Carolina is situated in the countryside just 10 minutes from the lovely pueblo blanco (white village) of Competa with it's many shops, bars and restaurants. The villa enjoys a peaceful setting with only the sounds of nature to disturb you. Its surroundings are lovely - the view up to the mountains is simply stunning. Terraces and gardens surround the villa with a lovely pool to make the most of the outdoor lifestyle. A Spanish kitchen is set next to a pretty vine covered pergola for alfresco dining while watching the sun set over the hills. There is a large area of land which belongs to the villa, with olive and almond trees, an old fig and wild herbs leading down to a pretty stream - a wonderful place for nature lovers with wild flowers, bees, butterflies and birds and, of course, the ever present song of crickets. If you tire of all this there is plenty to do close by visiting the beaches of the Costa del Sol, pretty Spanish towns and the cities of Malaga and Granada.

About the Owner
Clive and Marie have owned their holiday home since 2007 and have spent the past years improving it.
We purchased Casa Carolina for family holidays, and, looking to the future, a place to retire.
All revenue goes straight back into the property for maintenance and improvement for all to enjoy.

4.8 based on 9 holidaymaker reviews
The villa was absolutely perfect for us. We travelled with our 8 month baby and it was a sea home from home. The villa was spotless and has everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. The outdoor facilities are fantastic- great pool area, outdoor kitchen and plenty of places to sit and relax. Yes the l leading to it is a little tricky but you get used to it, plus it's worth it for the peaceful location.
Wonderful stay, beautiful house, amazing location!
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Carolina. Pedro was great with communication and met us at a location nearby and we followed him to the villa. We had a swim in arrival at 1am, the pool cover had been on so the water was lovely and warm. It was made better by the changing colour pool light! We used the wood fired pizza oven and bbq lots and had tasty fresh pizzas! The villa is equipped with everything you could need, and had a cot and toys for the 2 year old staying with us. The wifi worked well which was a bonus and the air con was lovely! There are many lovely restaurants locally, we have been visiting for years and recommend La Teteria and El Pilon in competa and for the best meat around, El Curro in nearby Archez.
Having the fences all around the pool was what made us book this villa as it's much safer with a toddler. We'll definitely be back, thank you Clive and Marie!
Fantastic villa with magnificent views
The villa is wonderful, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. We had a very relaxing holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed. The outdoor areas were excellent and the pool fantastic, the pizza oven fun. The air conditioning was very welcome.
Pedro who met us to show us to the villa was very helpful.
We visited the village of Compete a few times and also went to the beach at Nerja which is a 45 minute drive away and well worth a visit.
We would certainly recommend this villa to couples and families.
Beautiful views, lovely accommodation, very secluded
We had a lovely family holiday here. It is very secluded though and a car is essential. There is no room for mistakes on the mountain roads so ensure the chosen driver is confident.
RELAXING 10 DAYS IN THE MOUNTAINS
The villa is perfectly situated for those who need peace and quiet. It really does have everything you need.. Approx 7 kilometres from Competa.
You do need a robust car for those roads.... and I guess without Pedro;/Joachim this villa would be very hard to find.
The villa is clean and has a lovely outside area near the pool, which is very welcoming on those hot days and evenings.
Every utensil is in the little kitchen area including electrical small appliances you just would not expect.-its very compact. The lounge was very comfortable but to be honest did not use it very much. There are Games. Cards, X box. DVD's. lots of books I left a couple for their library. It was clear that the owners have tried and succeeded in trying to provide everything you may need.
Nerja, Torrox Costa were a couple of the places we visited..
Great mexican meal in Nerja.
Competa is also lovely village with some nice restaurants. its quite hilly, but very picturesque.
Only 1 negative to mention - Give the local pub a miss -needs a good clean. (approx 2 kms away)
We have just spent 2 idyllic weeks at Casa Carolina.The villa was spotlessly clean when we arrived and had everything we could possibly need. A fabulous place to chill out with lovely views of the surrounding area,really nice to come back to after days out. The nearest Bar/restaurant is Pavo Real, which is less than a 10 minute drive away. Good pub grub, and a great Sunday lunch. All in all we had a great holiday & would highly recommend this villa.
From the Owner
“We love Competa for it's close location to some of the bigger Costa del Sol resorts but it is an unspoilt, typical Spanish village with breathtaking scenery and clean mountain air.”
Activity and Interests
The beaches of the Costa del Sol are only a 20 minute drive away. There is something for everyone from the beach at Torrox with it's wide promenade, bars, restaurants and shops, to the pretty coves at Nerja and water sports at Burriana Beach, to the unspoilt beaches and beautiful coves east of Maro.
The nearest airport is Malaga at 50-60 minutes. Granada airport is 1.5 hours away. Car hire is recommended.
Competa village is a five minute drive. Malaga is a one hour drive. Granada can be reached in 1.5 hours. Nerja with it's caves and lovely beaches is 30 minutes.
Competa is full of shops, bars and restaurants where the food is both very good and reasonably priced. There are three good supermarkets, several banks, bakers, fishmongers and bodegas selling the delicious local wines for which the area is famous, as well as lovely gift shops. A market is held in the village on Saturdays until 2pm, a great place to have a coffee and soak up the atmosphere. There is horse riding and motorbiking into the mountains available locally. Walking opportunities abound from gentle slopes and river walks to high mountains, with many waymarked walks in the area. Further afield, Malaga is a beautiful city with its Moorish castle, lovely parks and shopping and, of course, Granada with the Alhambra set against the Sierra Nevada.
