average rating of 4.7 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We wanted a holiday in real Spain and this villa and this location ticked all the boxes.this villa is 636 metres above sea level and as you can imagine the views are spectacular.The villa is clean and well equipped with 3 bedrooms one being on suite.The outside space is of a good size with a pool together with a barbecue area. The village is approx a 30 minute walk away, but I would recommend taking a car due to the rough terrain track immediately outside the gate.In my opinion a car is essential as it will take you roughly 20- 30 minutes (15km) from the coast road to get to the villa, and you will have to be a confident driver negotiating the twisty mountainous roads, but it is well worth the drive. In closing the owner Mike was very helpful throughout this booking/holiday and we hope to return to return to Competa in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Eric Thank you for your kind comments about our villa. We are so pleased that you and your friends enjoyed your stay. I think that one of the benefits we have is the quite large, level and secluded garden and the single story, open plan interior. I have to agree with you that our location, 15 Km into the mountains from the coast, makes a car essential. Kind regards Mike

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Vick.

The photos really don't do the villa justice it is a very beautiful traditional villa the pool and the surroundings are very relaxing with everything you need for your stay.

The village of competa is wonderful everyone is very friendly and helpful we were very lucky to see a wedding in the village square and this was delight. We loved our meal at the hotelwhich I would recommend as we sat on the verdrander and watched the sunset.

The goats that go pass the villa twice a day was a treat for the kids as this was very funny when they jumped on the neighbours wall to pinch the flowers!!!

The drive to villa was quite scary and we were glad we didn't do this a night but as the days went by this wasn't an issue and you could even say we were pro's at this....

My only negative point would be the third bedroom the bed was ok at first but as the days went by this wasn't the case and also the pillows could do being updated.

Thank you Mike for letting us enjoy your villa and I can definatley see us as family or my in-laws re visiting this in the very near future.

Kind regards

Nicki (August 2017)

Owner's Response: Hi Nicki, thanks for your lovely review. If the photos don't do the place justice and guests book on the strength of our photos then Wow! that is a compliment indeed! I expect the meal on the balcony of the hotel you mention is the Hotel Balcon de Competa. New managers took over about 18 months ago and they have raised the bar, if you'll excuse the pun. Absolutely everyone mentions the passing goats in the guest book! They are surely an asset to the atmosphere of the place. Your comments on the sofa bed in the study/bedroom are noted and we will have a good look at improving this. We renew all the pillows every two years and they are due when we go back over ourselves in October. So pleased you wish to come and stay again. Many of our guests do. Kind regards Mike and Sian

Fantastic house.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of four for 18 nights and had a fantastic time. Competa is a lovely friendly village with lots of bars and restaurants. A car is a must with so many things to see and do in the surrounding area. I must recommend a hike up the Rio Chillar, if you intend to go all the way to the waterfall it will take around three hours and slightly less on the return.

We would definitely return to the Villa again. Thank you Mike for a brilliant Holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi Nigel We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa. It is lovely to know that a long stay of 18 nights did not leave you wanting for things to do or bored with just chilling out. Yes, Competa is a lovely friendly and very pretty village with great facilities with fascinating winding streets to explore. We too have hiked up the Rio Chillar, a wonderful experience walking actually in the river all the way and the part through the narrow gorge is amazing. We look forward to your suggested return. Kind regards Mike and Sian

Rest and relaxation in a perfect setting...

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where to start about a perfect week in this lovely villa on the outskirts of Competa? The home, patio, gardens and pool area were well furnished with everything we needed to start our holiday. The location is private, tucked onto a hillside and although there are neighbours around, they are not close and the home isn't overlooked. We found the location and the home perfect for our need to relax and re-charge our batteries. We spent a large amount of time in the pool as the weather was quite warm the entire week - never a shower or a gray day. We also made use of the poolside BBQ and cooked many of our own meals at the villa. The villa provides everything one would need to enjoy a week in the sunshine. The garden has been beautifully landscaped with flowers, cactus and beautiful palm and fruit trees.

In town, we made it to the Saturday market and bought fresh vegetables and fruit - we would recommend this to anyone wishing to support local people and it helped to practice our Spanish. We went to a few spots in town for a cold beer, a meal or for tapas. We would recommend everything at Taberna de la Oscar - went for a lunch and returned a few days later for dinner. Everything there was tasty, fresh and the staff were friendly and gave us helpful suggestions with the menu. We had ice-cold beer at La Taperia on the square, welcome for a hot day. On our final day our last stop was La Esquina De Miguel near the main municipal car park. The tapas were freshly prepared and quite good at a very fair price. We would recommend trying lots of spots in town, they were all outstanding.

Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. We hope to return again in the near future, and would highly recommend this villa for others seeking an escape from life's daily grind. We'd consider this one of our favourite holidays so far.

Owner's Response: Well Ruth, thank you for the lovely comments about our villa! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. You are quite right about the different places in town, it really is a friendly place and the standard of food seems to run from very good to outstanding. Most of the shops have the same friendly attitude and high standard. Pleased you made use of the BBQ and were able to make full use of the pool. We are so pleased that you fell in love with our villa and the village of Competa. Regards Mike and Sian

The best property ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Vick from10th-17th of September. It was 4 of us and we did use Owners Direct and properties in Andalusia for the past 2 years.This was our favourite !The location of the property is stunning but what surprised as the most were all the facilities outside and inside the house. Everything is kept immaculate and we just had the most amazing and relaxing time ever. The pool is great and we used it every day so was the barbecue .The extra attraction were the herd of goats which made it even more delightful .Thank you so much for letting as stay in your beautiful property.

We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time and that the effort we put into the house and garden are appreciated so much. Absolutely everyone loves the goats passing by twice a day.

From the moment we enquired about the villa, Mike was quick to respond and answered all our questions and nothing was too much trouble.

The villa is spacious and online photos don't do it justice. Beautiful views, and plenty outside space. We had fresh lemonade with the lemons from the garden, and being on the edge of a national park was stunning. The goats were a daily attraction, great excitement when we could hear the bells in the distance!

The villa is well stocked with cleaning fluids, hats, an umbrella for the beach and bits and pieces that others have left. Brilliant that there is even bags for grocery shopping.

We had gorgeous weather and temperatures of up to 35 so lots of time was spent in the lovely pool for which we were grateful. Air conditioning would have been a wee bonus to escape the heat at night but perhaps not beneficial at other times of the year which is perhaps why there is none. Fans helped a little.

We had an absolute ball and would like to thank Mike for our holiday. We would love to visit again soon, thank you :)

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny and family I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time at our villa and thank you very much indeed for the lovely review you have put on our Owners Direct web site. You would be most welcome to come again some time. We are getting more and more repeat bookings which means that many of you are falling in love with the house and village of Competa as we have done.

Car: necessary


Torrox costa is nearest beach about 15 Km drive taking around 20 minutes. It provides a clean beach and long promenade with many restaurants and bars.

The attractive and busy resort of Nerja is a further 10 minutes drive away.


Malaga airport is the nearest, 1hr 15 minutes by car. Granada is an alternative with a drive time of around 2 hours. The use of a car is really essential if staying at our villa.


Competa is 2km away taking 4/5 minutes by car or 20 minutes on foot.

A super area for mountain walking, pony trekking or just whiling the time away.
