“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed August 25, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This has to be probably the best place we have stayed and 21 days was still not enough! The villa Is very comfortable, stylishly furnished and well equipped. We enjoyed many lazy days just soaking up the sun, cooling off in the pool, admiring the views and listening to the tinkling goat bells while dreaming of being a goat herd in another life!! Oh, and picking delicious lemons from the tree....oranges sadly not ready yet! Wifi very efficient and even got English TV to keep an eye on the Olympics. Competa is very close (by car) and has a good selection of shops and restaurants and lovely streets to amble through. Many similar villages nearby to visit and day trips to Malaga or Granada worth a trip. Handy Lidl in nearby Torrox Costa for essentials! Feeling very sad to be home and missing the villa already!

“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed July 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a fantastic stay at the beautiful , clean and spacious villa. Very relaxing and we immediately felt like home. Malcolm and Christine who received us and showed us the villa were also very nice and kind to answer all our many questions. Everything was perfect; house, swimming pool, garden with the lemon tree, the small village Competa, just everything. We will definitely be back again soon and we will definitely recommend it to anyone. 5 stars from us and thanks for the wonderful vacation.

“Well equipped villa with a wonderful heated pool”
Reviewed June 2, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I spent 11 days at Luc's villa in May 2016. The weather was remarkable - sunshine and pleasantly warm every day. Great weather to enjoy the large heated pool every day of our stay. The villa has all the facilities you could wish for and more. The nearby village of Competa is a spectacular white village set on the side of a mountain. Some wonderful restaurants - such as "El Pilon" - Wonderful setting and great food. No wonder it id rated #1 in Competa. Also be sure to visit Oscar's and order the Lamb shoulder - the best lamb I have ever eaten. We highly recommend the villa and the area if you want a quiet relaxing holiday and rest. Just what we needed after a hectic and productive period in our business.

“Wow”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Wow is what I said when we arrived at the villa. I really didn't think it would be better than the pictures, but it was. Christine met us and we followed her to the villa, this was an experience !! Parts of the track are a little challenging but as previous people have said, after a couple of days it's not a problem. The Villa has everything you could possibly need, very comfortable and well equipt. We were lucky and had 10 days of lovely weather, we swam every day which was lovely. There is a little black dog who visits daily ( we named him scruffy ). He is no trouble and we fell for him completely. He loved his little treats which he waited patiently for until we had eaten. Competa is wonderful with lots of places to eat and drink, try loads, they are lovely. We went to Torrox for a main shop where there is Aldi & Lidl close to each other. We then used the supermarket near the car park where the market is held on Saturdays. During our stay we totally relaxed and recharged our batteries. We will be back x

“A wonderful retreat”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday. The Villa was perfectly described and very clean. Its a little off the beaten track so you do have to drive everywhere but this does give you seclusion. the pool was a great addition to our holiday and there is an expansive terrace ensuring all day sun.

“Well equipped villa with gorgeous pool in very rural setting”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We had some discussion with Luc before booking as one of our party had been unwell and we were keen to have effective air conditioning in the bedrooms. He was extremely helpful with his responses with prompt and friendly communication. The arrival instructions were comprehensive and we met as agreed with House Martins. This was very necessary as they guided us into the villa - it would have been difficult to locate if we did not follow them in. The roads are definitely not for the faint hearted! The villa was a joy, exactly as described and was probably better than we anticipated - well equipped and a real home from home. The pool was probably the highlight and was very well maintained with an outside shower. We even had our own lemon tree, the limes were not quite ripe. The only minor negative is that the villa is a little bit further from the town than we thought - some people may be able to walk to it but we definitely didn't fancy trying! In summary, one of the best villas we have used and we would definitely like to return.
