Casa Mari Carmen is a modern, south facing, 3 bedroom villa with private pool and terraces in a peaceful location within a few minutes drive of the pretty white village of Cómpeta, know as 'the pearl of the Axarquia', approximately an hour from Malaga Airport (all on paved roads - no tracks) and 30 minutes from the coast.
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.
