I was brought up on a farm in Scotland just north of Edinburgh and moved to London in 1989. I worked for a gallery dealing in Scottish and Sporting Art until I opened my own gallery, Fine Art Commissions in 1997. Based in St. James's, London, FAC is principally an agency for portrait painters. I try and spend as much time as I can in Spain, but sadly it never seems to be more than six weeks a year. The attached photograph is of my mother and sister (I am in the middle).

Sara Stewart purchased this villa in 2000

I spent Easter 2000 in Competa and fell in love with the area. As it rains a lot in Scotland I was keen to buy somewhere warm where my parents could escape to during the winter. I had a minimal budget and was only able to buy a run down bungalow. It was off a good, quiet road, which was vital for my parents who were by then in their late 70's and I needed to be sure that they had easy access and neighbours incase of illness etc. The house was a wreck when I bought it but the restoration has been an enjoyable labour of love. The project kept me working hard as every spare penny has been invested in my dream holiday home. I have one more plan and that is to extend the terrace, fingers crossed this will happen in 2014.

The house is surrounded by fabulous views, is accessible, safe and has a lovely and peaceful atmosphere. My friends call it 'the rest cure'.

Easter stay in a wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
A really lovely home in which we spent a glorious few days. Well equipped and spacious villa with lovely gardens full of flowers and lemon trees. Super heated pool and terrace with sun and shade to keep everyone happy. Master bedroom a treat and the garden room perfect for teenagers. We loved the views and the surrounding villages, enjoying the food in Competa on several occasions. We would thoroughly recommend La Colina and would happily revisit. Booking easy and straightforward, the owner helpful and informative. Our family of five had a ball, thank you.

Beautiful villa in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5
La Colina is a beautiful villa in lovely surroundings. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived ( and very tastefully furnished ) and had the majority of the things we needed for our holiday. No microwave though, which we needed to sterilise baby bottles! It has a good sized pool, which the children thoroughly enjoyed, and a very good patio area for sunbathing and enjoying the view.
The only thing I didn't like about the facilities, was the 'open plan' bathrooms in 2 of the bedrooms, although it didn't bother my daughter who stayed in the garden room.
One morning we walked up to The Alberdini ( about 20 minutes, all uphill ) for breakfast, which must be booked in advance. The views from their terrace are spectacular looking down to the sea.
It's only a five minute drive to Competa, a sizeable place with lots of bars and restaurants and 2 supermarkets. We would recommend Cortijo Paco, Oscars and El Pilon.
If you want to go further afield La Plaza in Canillas de Albaida is a very attractive place to spend an evening ( closed Wednesdays ).
I would be very surprised if anyone rented this villa for their holiday and was disappointed with it.

Enchanting villa in a beautiful position

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at La Colina for a week as a family with ages from 9 to 65!
The villa is absolutely delightful - beautifully situated in a glorious garden . The house itself is gorgeous - light, airy, well furnished and with some great artwork on the walls.
The 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms were ideal for us and the master bedroom/bath is amazing! My son and daughter-in-law also loved the Garden Bedroom.
The kitchen was easy to work in and well equipped and everywhere was spotlessly clean when we arrived.
The outside seating areas are really pretty with a super view down the valley. We particularly enjoyed the outside dining area and the heated swimming pool.
The villa had looked lovely on the web-site but the reality really exceeded our expectations!
The villa is a very short drive from the centre of Competa, which we have visited several times before and which remains a delightful small town.
We certainly hope to rent La Colina again at some future occasion and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Best villa we have found in the area

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to the Nerja area for 25 years and have had real problems finding a well equipped, well maintained, comfortable villa in a quiet location. We loved La Colina; the house is furnished and decorated to a really high standard, absorbed 8 people comfortably and has a kitchen where you can realistically cook for the whole party. I do realise that cooking a 3 course meal for 12 is not everyone's ideal holiday occupation, but it is mine and it was wonderful to have the kit to do it. I ended up baking the bread as well as everything else! It IS quite a long way from the coast up twisty roads, not much fun for travellers in the back seat, but we just hunkered down in pretty Competa and had a really good holiday. This is the first villa I have ever remotely considered coming back to for a second visit - I am sure we will.

Owner's Response: I try very hard to create a home from home atmosphere, it is especially gratifying for my efforts to be so appreciated.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 8 days this autumn. We loved it from the first minute we came in and until we regretfully left at the end of our stay. Bauutifully appointed with stylish antiques and art the warm feel and the simple beauty was wonderful. The house is extremely comfortable with everything you need and the bed in the master bedroom very comfortable and VERY big ! The master bathroom has views up the valley so you can bathe and gaze at the scenery simultaneously. he house is very well managed the caretaking excellent and the owner is a delight,cant wait to come again !

La Colina

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic villa for a relaxing holiday. La Colina is very well equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable. The master bedroom is wonderful, and the showers in the house are the best we've ever experienced in Spain.
Outside the garden and the pool are so tempting you might struggle to tear yourself away to explore the local area. The pool is deep, so caution is needed for small children and non-swimmers. Views from the terrace are stunning and although there are neighbours, the villa is positioned so that it is not at all overlooked.
Competa is a lovely little white town where you can get all the basics - a small supermarket, several bars and cafes and a few good restaurants. You do need a car, but the drive (although a long uphill haul from the motorway) is fine - all on properly made up roads. The drive to Competa from the villa is only about 5 minutes and there are taxis available if you're going to indulge while in town.
Overall a great place for a thoroughly relaxing fortnight.

Cómpeta is fascinating to explore with its labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets that date back to Moorish times. Its' main centre, the Plaza Almijara, is dominated by a magnificent sixteenth century church. This bustling square is one of the best places to enjoy a break with a choice of several bars and restaurants. Cómpeta is best known to many for its locally produced wine. The area surrounding the town is spectacular and there are many varied walks through the National Park (five minutes by car).

There is a golf course, shopping centre and cinema complex within thirty minutes. The magnificent Alhambra Palace in Granada is only an hour and a half from Competa by motorway, or two hours, through beautiful white washed villages. Nerja, only twenty minutes drive, has a beautiful beach with open air restaurants all along the sea front.

There are guided walking tours, riding stables, spectacular views, and beautiful drives all around the area. The area is a true rest cure!

Other Activities: Wine Tasting

Golf: Golf course at bottom of mountain road on the coast. Approx. 20km's - 25 minutes drive. Beautiful coastal course, particularly the 2nd nine holes.

Notes:
The swimming pool is 8m x 4m and is seasonaly heated. It is situated below the house down a path of approx. 12 steps. There is a tiled path through the orchard. There is a badminton net on the terrace. The house is not really suitable for children under the age of six, this is because the pool is not fully enclosed. Also, there is only a rope as a handrail (i.e it is not fully enclosed) up to the master bedroom. However, please ring if you have children who you feel would be fine under these conditions and as long as we have assurance that children will be properly supervised, we can be more relaxed over the age rule. During the winter months central heating is included in the cost. We are not insured for parties over 8 people. If there are more people in the house (including babies) and there is a fire/accident I'm afraid that the responsibility lies with the tenant's insurance
