A great arrangement in having separate living quarters with a 3 bed and a 2 bed unit, however with the pool and BBQ/Eating area meant we could socialise easily. Pool is a good size and clean and well needed in the heat to be able to dip in and out. Judith was a great host and with living on site, available to assist with any problems or advice. If you are after the lively holiday with nearby bars in walking distance, this is not for you, a great peaceful retreat with superb privacy. The villas are modern and very practical, all the facilities including washing machines, ovens/hobs, and a dishwasher for those late night BBQ’s where you use every single piece of crockery and glass you can find and then dread the washing up!! Sayalonga is a typical small Spanish hillside village with a couple of bars and restaurants which we ate at. However, it is a car journey of 10 minutes and you will need a confident driver to who will not partake in too much alcohol to get to the village as the road/track to the Villa is somewhat of a surprise at first, but after a couple of trips you get used to it. Don't ride the clutch though as you will soon burn it out!! 15 minutes gets you down to the sandy albeit grit type sand beaches of Caleta Velez and Torre Del Mar, however we would avoid at weekends in the main holiday season as the Spanish holiday makers and locals all head to the beaches at the weekend and trying to find parking/beds proved impossible on the first weekend we were there, so keep it for visiting local attractions/area or lazing by the pool. Sayalonga is around a 45 minute drive from Malaga and the airport, however we flew into Granada due to massive savings in the cost of flights which was an hour and half drive away, but if you enjoy driving, you will love the drive down with the roads and viaducts. You do not get the hussle & bussle of a big airport like Malaga and in the future, I will always look at Granada over Malaga when in that region. The whole of the Costa Del Sol and Costa Tropical is easily accessible via the A7 Mediterranean Coastal road and Gibraltar is a 2 – 2.5 hour drive which is always good for a day trip to a corner of the UK abroad. All in all, a great holiday destination if you like to mix it up and if you are a cyclist/walker; some good challenging hills.

Great location with great views and real privacy. Comfortable beds and lounge, good bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. The villa was spotlessly clean on our arrival. The only slight problem was an electrical fault which meant the power keep switching off when we were using appliances. It was easily turned back on at the fuse box, but was slightly annoying. There is no DVD player in the villa and only Dutch channels on the TV, which might be a consideration for some guests. The weather was extremely hot, but the air-conditioning meant that we were very comfortable. We really appreciated the shaded terrace with its' comfortable furniture and ceiling fan. The pool area was perfect. Having a shady place for the car was also helpful in the heat. We visited Granada, Malaga, Torre del Mar, Nerja and the surrounding white villages. We found Competa particularly charming and discovered several good restaurants there. Be careful driving into the villages as they have extremely narrow, steep roads, with no warning of what's ahead. We soon learned to park at the bottom of each village and walk up instead. If you hire a car try and get something with bit of power, as a stay at this lovely villa involves a lot of driving along steep, winding roads if you want to get out and about.
