PLAN YOUR HOLIDAY IN THIS CORNER OF PARADISE Luxury 2 bedroom villa, with 8x4m pool, UK Satellite TV (playing through Flat Screen TV) and UK Radio, DVD, Audio System set up for Iphone, Ipod, and Android Phones or Tablets with Blue Tooth connection and FREE WiFi. All mod cons, delightful, seductively serene country setting, yet only 20 minutes from the glorious beaches & bustling town of Nerja & the magic of Andalusia. The lovely villages of Torrox, Competa and Frigliana are minutes away & you'll find, here, Andalusia at its best! Pool directly in front of the house & terrace - great for just slipping into on those hot summer days & for keeping an eye on the kids. FREE INTERNET with WiFi to allow you to catch YOUR FAVOURITE TV PROGRAMS FROM YOUR HOME COUNTRY, YouTube and any videos or TV downloads, such as BBC IPlayer programs, that you have pre-recorded at home on your mobile or Ipad. The plot the house sits on is flat, has plenty of space for the kids to run around & play away to their hearts content in safety, with parking for up 3 cars. The setting is very private, not overlooked and a joy to roam and breathe in the clean air - you are indeed in a world of your own! Ideal base for Walkers, Mountain Bikers (local bike hire can be arranged for you), Horse Riding and Jeep Safari's along stunning country lanes! If you hanker after relaxing at the beach then you are only 20 minutes away from some of the most stunning bays in this region. With many beaches offering kayaking, windsurfing and snorkeling for adventurous beginners or the more experienced. With delightful restaurants, bordering the seafronts, to chill out and relax after a sun soaked day at the beach. Our villa is located in a peaceful but not isolated position. Torrox Pueblo (a relaxed but surprisingly bustling town on the way down to the coast with brilliant value fresh food sellers - fresh veg plucked straight from the town plots) is only a 15 minutes drive away. Here there are narrow streets with nooks and crannies to wander & discover the real heart of Spain. Many restaurants (at prices that are stunningly low), cafés & bars abound in the local square, with many more tucked away in corners, to while away the hours. With shops and daily market stalls selling produce, meat and fish that is locally harvested and reared & so much tastier than the run of the mill supermarket goods! A further 5 minutes drive, south, brings you to the coastal resort of Torrox Costa – with a lovely beach that is never overcrowded - with loads of lazy, stylish bars, eateries, tennis and other sports facilities. National & international supermarkets, here, cater for all tastes and at Torre de Mar (5 min from here) there is a huge hypermarket within a shopping mall, cinema & bowling complex. Lots to do and see - read on: If you head north and inland you'll come to Competa in 15 minutes, a typically picturesque Pueblo Blanco. Here you'll find very sophisticated restaurants, cheaper eateries & bars. Meandering streets, which are filled with flowers, hanging from pots throughout the year make for stunning photo shots. This whole district is a far cry from the over commercialised Costa's. Our house is only 45 minutes from Malaga airport. Nerja which is a more active and semi boisterous beach resort is just 30 minutes away from the Villa and has many cosmopolitan attractions to cover most peoples preferences. The Villa has a lovely peaceful rural setting, where you can truly feel as though you HAVE “got away from it all”. The area, where our house is located, is untouched by traffic as we are tucked into a delightful valley, but with a local caretaker if you need help and advice. The track, leading, down to our villa, is concreted. With drainage fitted to ensure water flows off the track to avoid erosion. Flat Screen Samsung TV plays UK TV with popular UK radio stations coming through the installed satellite system. You can play DVD's that you bring along with you and there are quite a few that are already available at the villa. If you are coming from the UK and have a smart phone, then set it up with a Three Sim as calls, data and text messages are covered by Three's UK standard charges (no extra charges that all the other networks tend to sting you for). You can fit a Three Pay As you Go SIM in the UK, set it for roaming and load it with enough Data allowance to keep you going for your holiday period and pay no more than you would in the UK.

About the neighbourhood
With Torrox, Competa and Nerja on your doorstep, Casa Tranquila is within an area that is a truly unspoilt jewel of the Costa del Sol
How to get there
The drive from the Malaga Airport is mainly along a not very busy motorway. Being in a rural area the final 2km is down a track - but there is no need for a 4x4. Golfers there are 2 18-hole golf courses within easy driving distance and skiing in the Sierra Nevadas is less than 2 hours away. In the winter months you can truly be on the beach or reclining by the pool sun tanning one day and enjoy skiing or snow boarding the next.Sight seeing: In addition to Competa there are many other Moorish Pueblo Blancos nearby, just waiting to be explored. Frigliana is a haven for arts and crafts (and a beautiful walk in the deep gorge that is below this village – with great picnic and barbecue areas – an easy walk for all abilities with stunning surroundings and a babbling brook, even in the height of...
