Amazing views and stunning villa

5 of 5
This villa is stunning as is the location and views. We have stayed here twice and have booked for 2018. The location is perfect for a really chilled holiday. Great for walking and painting. The villa has everything you need and more and the out door kitchen is the perfect place to cook. The pool is nice and big and plenty of outdoor space to play games or find a quiet spot with a book. Highly recommended.. Competa has some great bars, restaurants and shops and is a short drive away. The atmosphere is friendly and there are plenty of shops and art galleries.

Stunning

5 of 5
As a party of four adults, and three teenagers, we visit this area of Spain every Easter. This was our first stay at this villa and it exceeded all our expectations. It's further up the mountain than we normally go, but we are used to the windy roads and the views are absolutely breathtaking. Located on the very edge of the national park the surrounding scenery is stunning. There are numerous well marked walking routes connecting the numerous tiny villages nestled in the valleys. Apart from the occasional goat bells the location is as peaceful as you can get, a real gem of a place to get away from it all. The surrounding villages all offer restaurants serving fabulous food at incredibly reasonable prices (we did a huge amount of eating out). The villa itself was immaculate and, I feel larger than the photos suggest, there was plenty of room for two families. It was spotless and very well appointed. If we hadn't eaten out so much we would have found everything we needed in the kitchen and all of the little touches inside made it feel like home. The games shack was a huge hit with the kids as was the table tennis table that was in constant use. The villa was the best we have stayed in in all our travels in Spain. It was a pleasure to liaise with Anthony, the owner, who made the stay and arrival at the villa very smooth. The welcoming jug of sangria went down very well. There is no negative criticism I can give to the villa or it's location, it made for the perfect holiday, we had a fabulous time and can't wait to return.
