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.

Tranquil mountain retreat

5 of 5
We absolutely loved this villa, enjoying amazing unspoilt views across the mountains. We spotted an Eagle, Hoopoes, Swallows, Skylarks and Swallowtail butterflies. The mountain flowers were stunning and it was like being fast forwarded into summer, with perfect weather in March, though it was too early in the season for the pool to be made ready for use. The villa is really well equipped and very comfortable. We appreciated the wood burner in the evenings. The owner was very helpful as were the local managers. The local people were friendly and helpful too. We really liked Competa, for shopping and lunch. We'd advise getting fresh food supplies in before arrival, though the garage shop near Competa had a good range of essentials and the best bread. Chiki Beach restaurant, down at the nearest beach, offered excellent vegetarian/organic options which were delicious. There is fabulous mountain biking terrain from the doorstep. It was the perfect antidote to grey, wintry skies and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay there.
