CASA RAFA with private pool. Holiday in Competa.Quiet location with stunning views, secluded and tranquil.
The house is set in 1,5 acres of private ground planted of all sorts of trees. It is fenced so once you close the gate, there is a total privacy. No noise at all as it is minimum 150 meters to the road.
The closest village is CANILLAS DE ALBAIDA., it is just 300 meters away if you take a path that goes directly from the house to the village. The village has shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, chemist and a medical centre.
Then the nearest town is COMPETA, famous for its wine festival in August. It has much more wide choice of bars, restaurants, shops, etc. This one is 2,5 kilometers away and there is also a path if you prefer to walk.
The house was built in 2005 in the local typical spanish style. It has 2 bedrooms but very large as the house has 96 square meters and 30 meters terrace area.
Plenty of place to park the cars on the plot.
It is a 25 minutes drive to the beach of Algarrobo Costa
Checking in and out times are flexible and depending on bookings. No problem with late arrivals or early departures.
The Villa has been comfortably furnished throughout with good quality furniture and all necessary electrical equipment, . Sun Beds and additional tables and chairs for eating al fresco. There is private parking on the plot .
We had a great 2 weeks here, very close to village and easy to walk to in 5minutes. Competa can be walked to but we didnt due to the heat and is less then two minutes in the car. Patio area is bigger then it looks on the pics and plenty of space and beds around the pool. Arrival and departure was made very easy by the owner and times were flexible as far as possible. Villa has every thing you need for a relaxing holiday and pool is not overlooked with stunning views. 20 mins to the beach but has the seclusion of a very rural location.

All I wanted was a place that was
a) near enough to bars and restaurants so that driving wasnt necessary
b) but quiet, private and secluded
This villa ticks both boxes perfectly
Its on the outskirts of Canillas (I found 3 different restaurants in that little town - but there may be others) and the walk into Canillas is no more than 10 minutes - and thats at a gentle stroll
You can cut a bit off that time by using a path that goes from the back of the property to the very edge of the town but the terrain is a bit tricky so I wouldnt suggest that route if coming back in the dark (or after a few glasses of vino).
Its easy driving distance to the coast of you want that too
Pools a decent size and overall, Id recommend this property

If you want a peaceful holiday away from the crowds, would like to sit out and look down the valley towards the sea and have a good variety of close restaurants to choose from (in both Canillas de Albaida and Competa) then this is the place for you. You can walk in to Canillas de Albaida and although we always did the five minute drive to Competa there is a path if you want to walk there too. Although the shops arent supermarket size you can get everything you need without having to go down the windy mountain road. Tasty lemons, avacados and limes are all in the garden to pick. Rafael was also very accommodating and helpful and the villa couldnt be in a more glorious setting with a good size private pool. I highly recommend this villa and would love to return.

Fantastic views and a well equipped house, with the owner Rafael being very friendly and helpful. We were left in peace and even given charge of cleaning the pool with clear instructions and a good demo. It was very easy to do. Nearby Competa has some restaurants - our favourite was El Pilar with its varied cuisine. Nearby Canillas is a quick walk and although its supermarkets are small, they are surprisingly well stocked. The place is quite private in feel although it has a nearby house or two. The road from the motorway is not an issue and quite a pleasure to drive - an even more interesting and beautiful drive is the road to Torrox. I think well be back - particularly for those views !!!
Fantastic pool, big private grounds full of fresh figs, almonds, lemons. Easy uphill walk to village with small shops and places to eat.( Antonios is best). Villa is simple but had everything we needed. Views stunning, amazing sunsets. Rafael was really helpful and thoughtful. Spent most of the holiday relaxing by the pool but also drove to Granada. Road up to villa from motorway is steep and winding so best tackled first time in daylight but dont let that put you off if you are looking to get away from the crowds. We had a perfect time
Totally Amazing ! we will be back next year!
