A short distance from the village, beautiful Sierra Almijara mountains and National Park, the nearest bar is only a 20 minute walk away (approx).
Set amongst 2,900 sqm of grape vines, olive and fruit trees with fantastic views across the mountains and valleys down towards the Mediterranean Sea, the villa is the ideal location for a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable holiday or base for those wishing to walk, cycle, climb or bird-watch.
Casa Mari Carmen is approached via a gated entrance to a level driveway with parking for a number of cars.
Through an archway and shingled garden you reach the covered porch with wicker dining table and chairs providing an ideal place to relax or dine, soaking up the views while avoiding the heat of the sun.
The front door opens into the open plan sitting/dining room with wooden beams, fireplace, sofa, easy chairs and a large dining table and chairs. There is WiFi internet access, satellite TV (some UK and free to air European satellite channels), DVD player and a radio/CD player. A window looks across the hillsides and patio doors lead out to the swimming pool and terrace area.
An archway leads into the fully fitted kitchen with window overlooking the covered porch. Fully equipped with granite worktops, halogen hob, electric fan oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine etc you should have everything you need for a relaxing stay. A clothes airer, iron and ironing board are also available.

Excellent villa, well equipped,great location. Rural but within easy reach of all amenities
Really relaxing for night at Casa Mari Carmen. A really great location giving peace away from the bustle of the Costas yet within easy reach when you want to visit them. Competa is a beautiful village with everything you need for your stay. Would definitely recommend the villa and the area.
We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review. Hope to see you again!
Very comfortable, good location
Has everything you could need, great pool, conveniently located just outside Competa
A wonderful retreat with stunning views
We stayed for a week for a family holiday (2 adults and 2 young children). The villa was perfect for everything we needed - plenty of space inside and out. Lovely private pool and we made good use of the BBQ.
Competa is just a few minutes away by car. It's a lovely little town with everything you need - cafes, restaurants and supermarkets.
Good communications with the owner (Ian).
Would thoroughly recommend.
I'm glad that you and your family had an enjoyable stay and had everything you needed. Thank you for your very positive review – we hope to see you back with us again.
Relaxing family holiday
Lovely villa, amazing views. Very clean property with everything you may need. We had an enjoyable 5 days spent lounging by the pool and visiting the local villages.
Competa is a picturesque village set into the mountain side with some lovely places to eat and narrow streets to explore. The villa itself is a 5 min drive from the town, the drive takes a little getting used to as is quite steep, we had a people carrier that was probably the biggest vehicle you'd want to drive as a novice!
Clean, Well appointed, Quiet, Great Pool Stunning views
Good directions to the property, well appointed. Clean on arrival. Great pool about 8m by 4m. Very quiet location. Car a must very step hills around. Nearby Competa a delightful village and worth an explore. Hills dotted with vines, almond trees and olive groves. We had a blocked shower which was fixed very quickly with no fuss. Weatherwas blue skies around 30 to 32 degrees all week. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
A lovely villa for the adventurous driver in a beautiful setting!
After a scenic drive through the mountains we arrived at this beautiful villa, the directions supplied by the owners was perfect. After wanting a secluded villa, overall we found the villa to be secluded enough without being completely isolated. The villa was exactly as it had been described and fitted out very well for everything that you will need for your stay. The pool is of good size and depth with a deep and shallow end. All in all a villa we would like to return to!
Thank you for your review, we're pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to welcoming you back.
