Located in the area of luxury estates called "The Campo", it is a leisurely stroll or brief drive to the international and cosmopolitan ‘Village’ of Cómpeta. The secluded VILLA ARBOLEDO (“House in the Trees”) is your gated, completely private, vacation estate for playful relaxation. Sunbathe on the fully private pool terrace, and enjoy cocktails overlooking the hills and blue water Mediterranean Sea view.
Brilliant, comfortable, spacious and roomy, PLUS a romantic hideaway to nourish the soul, and feed the heart~ Sunbathe, even in December! Breath-taking views~ Stay up on cozy evenings by the fire watching a movie in the lounge wing~ What a balance of nature, charm, and modern convenience~
The original portion of this villa is over 100 years old, its charming provenance evidenced by the traditional beam work in the finca ('estate or ranch', in Spain) portion of the villa. Updated to reflect modern comfort and style, every bedroom has it's own en suite bathroom, a plus for privacy and convenience.
The oversize terrace is an extravagant space to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle that is the hallmark of Southern Spain. The outdoors is an additional, and complete, living space to play, rest, cook, and dine. Enjoy the warmth basking in one of the sun beds, or simply relax under the shaded patios for a romantic evening. Munch casual buffet style tapas in the outdoor living room and around the spacious pool deck, or enjoy sit down dining under the covered veranda.
Direct access from the Master Bedroom leads to the oversized pool terrace, complete with an outdoor Living Room, an outdoor Dining Room, outdoor Fridge, and BBQ...and don't forget the VIEW!
Fully equipped kitchen with all conveniences: a new (2017) dishwasher, oven, plus microwave, clothes washer AND dryer, wifi.
All three bedrooms are en suite, a modern upgrade adding full baths to each and every bedroom.

~Interaction with guests:
If I am not available to greet you, I have a multi-lingual staff, and a wonderful gentleman, Enmanuel, who will be there to greet you and provide service requests (such as a hot tub which is available for hire). Enmanuel was born and raised in the village and will be able to provide you with insight and history of the village.
Terraced with vibrant art galleries and restaurants, Cómpeta is vivacious and engaging, while maintaining the cultural charm and grace of a traditional whitewashed Spanish mountain town. I proudly own one of the Village’s most popular and upscale restaurant destinations.
Cómpeta's name finds its roots in Roman heritage, derived from the Latin phrase Compita-Orum, which means "crossing of roads." It was a place where the Romans celebrated feasts, made offerings, or lingered to shop and sell products.
'The Lost Village'
Cómpeta has a neighbourhood on the mountain called El Acebuchal which recently has built a chapel for its few inhabitants. Their houses are spread over a hillside in an area named 'The Lost Village'. Today this area is an enchanting place to hike, stroll, and to enjoy an unlikely and excellent upscale restaurant (one of the few that often serves wild boar!).
The villa is a pleasant 20 minute stroll into the village, or a convenient 5 minute drive. There are local taxis to provide you with transportation to the village (or to the coast and to the airport). In addition, there is a daily bus service to the coast from the village.
It takes approximately one hour to reach the village from Málaga Airport, along the coastal motorway, then inland. Once situated, it is only 20 minutes down the well-maintained mountain road to reach the beach resort of Nerja.
~Other things of note:
Relaxation does not mean giving up your healthy lifestyle. Horseback riding, hiking, and even kayaking at the coast provide a day's adventure, or simply relax on the Mediterranean's world famous Costa del Sol.
The Village has a full gym (weights and classes) that offers day & weekly passes. Private and class training in Pilates & Yoga are available, and a personal masseur is available to round out your day in Paradise.
If you can tear yourself away from the myriad of interests in the Village, elegant resort towns and beaches are just down the winding mountain road. A center for museums, shopping, and gastronomic delights await you in Malaga, or continue a few minutes to the nightclubs and gay scene in Torremolinos.
