House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Be prepared to be blown away by the views..arrive in the dark and wait till the morning! Our first guests sent a postcard with the words "WOW.. you didn't tell us it was like this" Of course not, we didn't want to spoil the surprise!
With 360 degree views all around the house you'll have trouble deciding what photograph to take first, sun up in the morning from the front patio settee with your cup of coffee, sea and mountains, or the amazing sunsets every evening from the pool patio, each one different and worth waiting for whilst you laze by the side of the pool with your glass of wine or maybe floating silently across the water.....just you wait and see!
Air conditioned bedrooms with ceiling fans in the main house, also ceiling fans in lounge and one kitchen, the Tower room with unbelievable views and Moroccan themed has sliding doors, small fan and mosquito netting to the double bed and is suitable for adults only, the shower, WC and basin are situated by the pool area down the steps. There is another outside shower too, with a view to die for.
As we have several steps in and outside the house, this makes it unsuitable for wheelchair users.
Please make sure all children either swim or are supervised at all times near the pool for their safety, it is your responsibilty to arrange suitable swim aid devices.
Main house bedrooms are:- Japanese style King size bed with en suite bathroom consisting of bath with shower attachment, WC, Bidet and wash basin. Overlooks garden/dining area and pool.
Mediterranean Haven with Super King Size bed and TV with DVD player, this room has direct access to the sun room and pool area with amazing views from your bed down to the sea. (shares shower room with twin bed room).
African adventure, twin bedded room overlooks the garden/dining area. shares shower,WC and basin with Mediterranean room.
Tower:- Moroccan Riff Mountain view, double bed with mosquito netting, small table fan and too many cushions! THIS ROOM DOES NOT HAVE AN AIR CONDITION UNIT, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT BECAUSE OF IT'S POSITION IT IS LIABLE TO GET HOT AND MUST HAVE THE SLIDING DOORS LEFT OPEN TO ALLOW A THROUGH DRAUGHT.
2 kitchens one by the pool area so the Chef doesn't get left out of the fun. Lounge with TV, DVD, books, i pod player, games, and even a spare set of reading glasses in case you forget yours! Sun room for a quite read perhaps whilst still keepng an eye on the pool, Olive grove with 30 trees, don't eat them off the tree...you won't like them, our fig tree, help yourself if your there at the right time of year.
Ski-ing is approximately 2 hours away, beaches a 30 min drive, Nerja has several different beaches, one very cosmopolitan, nice shops, dining, caves etc., Lots of empty beaches along the coast road to explore. The lost village, El Acebuchal is a great place to visit for lunch along with Frigiliana and the National park a short drive up the mountain with clear super cold mountain water to dip your toes in and have a picnic lunch...heaven. Bike hire in Competa, walking guides and adventure days, all available in the village. Forgot to mention the amazing night sky, there is an observatory over on the next hill that was built by the Danish I believe the stars are really something to behold, lay back on your lounger and admire the heavens.
We do try and supply the little things such as salt, pepper, oil etc and ask that if you use something up then you replace it, we can't guarantee that all our guests will comply unfortunately.
2 hairdryers, steam iron/ironing board, assorted pool toys (providing guests don't break them) Beach umbrella and cool bag.
English hosts in the village should you have any problems.
This is a NON SMOKING house, please don't spoil it for us all. Internet connection could be arranged if required at a charge of £18 per week, please ask.
We hope we have enticed you enough to want to spend some time in our special place which is to be re-named shortly to "La Casa Encantada" ( the Enchanted house.)...we certainly think so!

The Andalucia region
Competa is a typically Spanish Village which makes it special to us. Although many people speak English we find it fun trying to make our Spanish understood and it's amazing how quickly you can understand the language.
If you want, friendly, peaceful and away from the bustle of "Tea like mother makes" or "fish and Chips" then this is the holiday for you, walking, cycling, a cup of coffee whilst watching the world go by, maybe catching up on your e mails with Free WiFi in the town square (although we have avoided putting it in the house, as we feel you should "get away" from the stress of the normal) your on holiday after all!.
Malaga is an hours drive, there are many things to see in the old part of town, along with shops, restuarants etc., A trip to Ronda is a must, the amazing bridge and the gorge are a definate "not to miss". Seville and Cordoba should also be on your list, although it would possibly mean an overnight stay.
Nerja and the different beaches are 30 mins away, we love this place if it's a beach day, thank goodness there are Wc's along the beach area, it may not be the first thing that comes to your mind when thinking "beach" but with kiddies it's essential, (take your own paper though)! We have a cool bag/flask/containers, and a sun umbrella for you to take to the beach, please bring them all back though.
Torre Del Mar is another big beach area along with shops, the market is on a Thursday and is very good, Competa has a small market in the lower square on Saturday mornings where you can buy enormous cauliflowers, carrots, peppers, everything you will need but in EXTRA sizes, it never fails to amaze me how large everything is!
In spring the wild flowers are beautiful along with the almond, orange and lemon trees. In November/December the days are still beautiful and warm and the nights chilly, but we have a wonderful log fire in the lounge and also underfloor heating, you will see the Olives being picked for Olive oil and also for preserving, they taste awful straight from the tree, you have been warned!
Each season brings it's own charm to the area, whether it's snow capped mountains in the distance or evenings with the sun still shining at 9.30 pm and your still in the pool, it's an amazing place with lots to see and visit or just chill. Festivals are the norm in all the surrounding villages, join in the fun but be prepared to start at 10pm at night, sleep during the day.
Rolling hills, massive mountains, National parks, goat herds with distant bells clanging, bees buzzing, the odd cloud, distant sound of a cockerel and small birds singing, larks swooping, sound of laughter and children, odd dog barking, water lapping up the pool, sold it to you yet?

Stayed here 2 years ago when the villa was first being rented and my husband and I loved it. Clean, spacious and the views are breath taking. Waking up above the clouds is something you need to see for yourself. You do need a car but it is a perfect getaway spot. This is true spain. Enjoyed ourselves so much we are going back in 3 weeks so can't wait.
Hi Emily, so glad you enjoyed your stay, I'm sure your going to love the renovations that have happened since your last visit. Enjoy your holiday and thank you for your lovely review.
