We really enjoyed our stay here on our fourth visit to Competa. The check-in went smoothly, meeting Jenny at the Venta and following her a few minutes to the villa. You have to be prepared for uneven mountain roads often with no barrier or fence, and a steep track, some concrete but mostly dirt, off the road to the villa. The villa is spacious, equipped with all the amenities you could need and was in an excellent state of repair and cleanliness. Jenny was very helpful and brought a change of bedding as the room with two single beds was made up for young children and we had two young adult lads with us. The villa has air-conditioning, essential I'd say in July and August, but only in the lounge / dining room and the master bedroom. The lads room was very warm at night, but Jenny was great in buying and bringing another fan for them. The pool was lovely, temperature was great and it was cleaned weekly. The villa is ten minutes drive and 30-45 minutes walk from the village where there are plenty of good places to eat and drink, plus shops for food and gifts.
As with many other Villas which we have rented in the Compete area of Spain, this one did not let us down.
Clean, well equipped and thoughtfully presented. Not to mention the much appreciated welcome food items.
The agent met us at the approved place/time, guided us to the villa and provided all the necessary information required for our stay.
The large pool was clean and inviting. It was also cleaned/topped-up half way through our stay (not always the case with many villas).
Competa was as always, the perfect place for us to enjoy good (well priced) food and occasional live entertainment.
Once again, we did not particularly enjoy our excursion to Nerja, overcrowded, and a bit 'grubby' would be my best way to describe that town.
As a driver who regularly gets stuck on the M25 car park, I thoroughly enjoy driving up into the Sierra Nevada passing through the numerous quaint villages.
I would totally recommend Malagacar.com if you need a rental car. A slick service, with no 'hard sell' insurance/fuel additions. 1 x week all inclusive hire of a BMW X1 @ £300.
Generally a really enjoyable holiday. Can't wait for the next one.
We must start off by saying the villa was fabulous , the welcome was very good as we arrived a little late on a saturday, but it was no problem as we had been left a lovely welcoming surprise the fridge was stocked with essential including beer n wine. the villa itself is fantastic with lovely views a fantastic pool, we just felt it was home from home , very clean with all the comforts anyone could want, it wasnt too far from the lovely village of Competa with all the amenities you could want.The peace n quiet was unbelievable , we personally could not fault the villa or the area its a fantastic base for visiting other locations as its not far from the motorway which we found never too busy, communication with the owner was very good , we have stayed in many villas in Spain and we can honestly say this has been the best, we booked the villa because of the location , size of the villa and the pool.....this review is just our opinion we thoroughly enjoyed it and would deffinatly go back again Emanue (max) Magari from uk lancashire
