Why Mrs Patricia Lonsdale chose Cómpeta

We love the outside space, when standing on the terrace or the sun roof the open

space all around you with the views is special, especially at night when the stars are out, it is so peaceful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had 16 days at Villa Martha, it was all we hoped for, in a beautiful setting,

the pool, patio and roof terrace are all positioned to catch the sun all day.

The Villa was spotlessly clean and all the equipment we needed, although there was only two of us, we are sure 6 people would be just as comfortable as the Villa is spacious inside and out.

The Villa is close enough to Competa to sample the many restaurants and bars, the Hotel Alberdini is very local and we spent enjoyable evenings wining and dining being entertained by local musicians.

We did explore the area, but spent many days chilling out enjoying the pool and the views over the valley with the grape vines and olive trees, throwing a steak on the BBQ enjoying the sunset.

Lovely villa, with everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Villa Martha is everything you could ask for. Amazing views, beautiful outdoor space, fantastic pool. Three double bedrooms all ensuite and the added luxury of a dishwasher and washing machine. Best of all the pool was fantastic and was well used by us. Competa is a lovely place....very uphill but very charming and authentic. We also ventured to Nerja, Malaga and Torrox. We really had a relaxing time and hope to go back to Villa Martha some day

Stunning views, lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a really lovely time in this villa - the views are amazing, the pool is great too. Very private. Shady dining, sun loungers and a roof terrace. Competa is great too. Lots to do and see in the area. The only negative thing we found was it was so high up in the mountains, to go anywhere at all meant a drive slaloming along the roads back down the mountain which made the kids feel a bit car sick and also it meant it seemed to take ages to get anywhere!!! Also, roads very narrow and often without safety barriers so we didn't feel it safe enough to walk down into Competa so drove everywhere. Having said that, it is a real home from home and you don't get views and tranquility like that at the bottom of a mountain!! We were met and shown to the villa so knew exactly where to go which was really helpful. Patricia very helpful too.

Lovely villa in beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful break at Villa Martha in May this year.

The villa lived up to expectations and was clean, comfortable and quiet with magnificent views

of the mountains

We particularly enjoyed eating breakfast on the shaded terrace taking in the beautiful views.

Peaceful setting, pure relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many Owners Direct villas and this is our favourite so far. Beautifully maintained and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. The highlight for us was the wonderful views and peaceful setting. Plenty of places to sit either in sun or shade to enjoy the wonderful setting, lovely clean pool and well maintained garden. Competa, although small, had a great range of food shops, small supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Prices were extremely reasonable.

Stunning Villa with Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Martha is stunning, very clean and well maintained. Everything listed was there and more. Stunning panaramic views, beautiful pool and outside space.

The drive to Competa took 5-10 minutes where there is ample parking with two well equipped supermarkets, and several fantastic restaurants which are all very reasonably priced.

Owner provided all information we asked for very promptly.

Would recommend to friends or relatives.

Hope to return in the future.

Thanks again for a fantastic holiday in your beautiful villa.

Sandra, Patrick, Gemma and Kieran

A lovely villa in a stunning hillside setting.

  • 4 of 5

This was the second year we have stayed at Villa Martha. It is a lovely villa in a stunning hillside setting. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and maintained, the villa has been improved since our last visit to include an outside poolside shower, new seating and improvements to the garden. We never tire of the fabulous panoramic views over surrounding farmland and mountains. A peaceful location for relaxing yet close enough to the charming village of Competa with plenty of bars, shops and restaurants. We returned this year to experience the Noche del Vino (Night of Wine) in Competa on 15th August which we thoroughly enjoyed. This place will forever be in our hearts, it is a superb location for a chilled family holiday and we hope to visit again soon. I would highly recommend this villa to my friends and family. The owners were very approachable and helpful as were Debbie and Alick at Todo Todo. Driving here on the mountain roads is not for the feint-hearted but you do get used to it!
