About the property

Villa near Competa, Costa del Sol (Inland), Spain - Peaceful Location Near Competa, Heated Pool And Central Heating Helps Extend Your Holiday Option

Casa Jessica is set in peaceful countryside with views over surrounding farmland with the sea in the distance. Being 300m lower than Competa and nearer the coast the climate is slightly better. The villa has an open plan modern fully equipped kitchen and lounge with direct access to an outside covered dining/sitting area and child friendly terrace, which leads to the 8x4m heated pool that catches the sun late into the evening. The terrace and pool areas have retractable awnings. Competa has banks, clinic, shops, bars and excellent restaurants. The steep, shady village streets are a delight to explore and the village is surrounded by national parks for brilliant walking. The beach and Nerja are 20k, so a change of scenery for children can be very welcome. We endeavor to make your stay at Casa Jessica as pleasant as possible. Our Villa hosts provide a welcome pack of essentials on arrival and will assist with any local problems that might arise.

The third bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds is a tight squeeze and has the advantage of portable aircon which is useful to cool the room down for children. The owners do not smoke and would ask guests to respect the non-smoking policy within the villa. Mobile phone signal is reasonable with 3G from Orange and Vodaphone for certain. There is no broadband available but most cafe's and restaurants in Competa have free WiFi Outside: The villa is situated at the head of a valley on a steep one acre plot. Outside the immediate confines of the villa the ground is natural with many wild flowers and interesting wildlife. At the foot of the drive is a large parking/turning area. There are several small garden areas which are planted with local bushes and cacti which need no maintenance. The tiled terrace which runs the length of the property is edged by railings with brick piers and is totally safe for children. 2 large retractable awning cover the terrace immediately in front of the outside dining/sitting area. The private 8 x 4m pool is to the side of the villa and has a constant depth of 1.6 metres, easy steps lead into the pool. Pool heating is available outside of high season when a maximum 24' can be possible. A retractable awning provides shade by the pool. 6 sun loungers are provided and several parasols. The barbeque is near the pool. Guests video on YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGJW53tPDnU Utility Room: Washing machine.

Peaceful holiday. Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well kept villa. Very comfortable and clean. Competa is a lovely village with many good restaurants. Would recommend El Pilon, Oscar's and the Moroccan restaurant beside the car park.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was lovely. Casa Jessica is very peacefully situated with a great view to the coast. It was very clean and well presented. We visited Malaga staying over one night and had a day in Nerja. The rest of the time we relaxed by the pool and enjoyed many delightful meals in local restaurants. High light of the week was when a herd of goats came with feet of the villa.

beautiful villa, stunning views

  • 4 of 5

Casa Jessica is a beautiful villa with some of the most amazing views you can imagine. The directions given were a great help and we were met as directed. The villa was clean with a much appreciated welcome pack. Plenty of towels and linens. The villa is comfortable and the little touches like games, dvds and books were a great idea. The villa is remote but we enjoyed that aspect and was only a few minutes drive to Competa. I would recommend Casa Jessica for anyone fancying a break away from hustle and bustle.

Breathtaking Views and Excellent Facilities

  • 5 of 5

Before arriving at the villa we received excellent correspondence and instruction from the property owner. We enjoyed the drive up to Competa and met with the hosts as pre-arranged. The hosts took us to the villa and explained the layout and how all the facilities worked. Now I am rather fussy when it comes to housekeeping and was very happy to find the villa spotless and beautifully presented - it definitely met with my high standards and expectations!

The villa was a sanctuary with breathtaking views from the terrace and a sparkling well maintained pool. It was spacious and well thought out with ample accommodation for a large family. The kitchen was spotless and very well appointed which made any dining in experiences all the more pleasurable. As we had a small child with us it helped that the villa was like a 'home-from-home' as he could unwind with a DVD or take an afternoon nap whilst we sunbathed on the terrace in earshot.

When we managed to drag ourselves away from the villa, we enjoyed wonderful meals in the village of Competa. We also enjoyed a day in Malaga - far more historic and picturesque than I'd imagined, and afternoons at the nearby beach in Nerja.

So if you want a truly relaxing holiday experience - as a couple or a family - then this place certainly ticks all the boxes and we can't wait to return.

Really relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

just spent an idyllic week at Casa Jessica, could have been the only people in the world. Fantastic views I could imagine you would never get tired of. Every facility you could want in a very comfortable house. The caretakers, Janet and Kevin were most welcoming and obliging.

Found some great restaurants in Competa, which is a quaint, interesting town. Feel we would like to return again to Casa Jessica in the future

Kids loved the pool

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 grandsons (5,7 &10) loved the pool. It was heated to 26 degrees and they spent all day every day swimming. It left my wife and I plenty of time to relax and enjoy the view. The villa was clean and tidy on arrival and Janet stocked the cupboards with food we had pre-ordered. Recommend.

Owner's Response: Wow, lucky children. We had a hot autumn and the pool retained its summer heat so with a little heating it stayed a good temperature. Janet looks after our guests and husband Kevin, the Villa and pool. They are English and live nearby. We would not consider letting our family villa without them. Thanks for your review

Car: necessary


The nearest beach is Torrox da Mar about 17k away but the best beaches are at nearby Nerja


Car hire is essential. The villa is on the out skirts of Competa and meet and greet near Competa will always be arrange for first time guests.
