lovely spot between Competa and Canillas de Albeida
Lovely views and quiet location. The pool was only for the brave in April but some of our number used it daily. Breakfast on the terrace was a daily ritual. The log-burning stove with an ample wood supply was excellent for the sometimes chilly evenings. Fine walking in the vicinity. Glorious spring flowers everywhere.
Villa was in a lovely location and easy access to Canillas and competa
Throughly enjoyed our stay, location was very good, views excellent and great peace and quiet, would certainly recommend for a restful get away
Our holiday nightmare!
On day four we got robbed! Someone used keys to enter the villa at night. We woke in a gut instinct terror early in the morning to the sound of the front door banging closed. My husband checked all doors and windows and they were all locked up and couldn't see prowlers so we went back to sleep. But later that day after walking out locally for lunch we found all money had been taken from one purse left in lounge and we know it definitely had a few hundred euros in it when we went to bed. Police visited and were great but we didn't sleep very well after that. At least we didn't wake up to the robber standing over our bed. Two out of three locks were changed within 24 hours, bit odd but we barricaded the third door. Apparently it had been recently replaced. There is obviously a security issue at this property.
On top of that we arrived to a thick green pool. We only complained after feeling we didn't want to use it for the first three days and after looking at the so blue pool pictures on the website. Then we had to endure the pool man every day for the rest of our holiday, not what we think a relaxing villa holiday should involve. There seem to be very regular pool problems at this property.
Lastly, the villa was strangely stripped bare of things like oil, vinegar, herbs and spices that inevitably all guests leave. There was literally only one book, no games or pool equipment and no DVD connected but there was a dusty one in a cupboard that might have worked.
This review has absolutely no substance to it and is completely inaccurate. Having thoroughly investigated the matter of alleged theft I discovered that the client had not been totally honest in her appraisal of the situation. The pool man who maintains the pool at the property ( and has done for many years) witnessed doors being left unlocked and open when the guests were sleep without any concern for the security of the villa. In an attempt to hide this fact it is sadly apparent that this client apart from seeking some remuneration covered up the true facts, by insinuating that someone had a key, an assertion that was and is completely untrue. I urge you to please read all other very positive reviews and dicard this one as being pernicious and vindictive
We Had a great stay in this great little villa ; Sam made us feel at home, the views down to med woundefull , Walking distance Competa 20mins Canillas 10Mins, Hope to come back another time , Thanks Angus
Peace perfect peace
If your looking to get away from it all this is the place. Great views of the countryside all the way to the sea. The walk into Competa is great but for the daytime only but you can get a Taxi back in the dark.
The villa itself was very clean and
Plenty of good food shops in Competa along with places to eat and drink. Sam, the owner was on hand, if required, to give help and advice. All and all a great few days and will probably return.
We had 2 weeks here in Sept 2016. The property itself is very well maintained and in a beautiful, setting. The villages of Competa and Canilares are close by. Canilares is a 10 minute walk and has everything you need. The pool was excellent and totally private. The lady who looks after the property, Loli, made sure we had everything we needed and she did a great job. As a note to the owner, as there were only 2 of us we had ebough crockery, but I think you need to get some more for larger parties. Thank you for a fabulous holiday.
