Outstanding villa with incredible views ideal for bed and breakfast and restaurant:
The unique Villa Chile complex was built by a successful local businessman in the late 1960’s on an elevated ridge site overlooking the very vibrant small white washed town of Competa and is a well known local feature.
This truly superb location gives Villa Chile both a commanding view looking down the valleys to the Med plus a back drop of the majestic Sierra Amijora mountain range
The complex constructed on a raised bed rock is accessed by a cement driveway leading to a large car park ,a wide double fronted stairway leads you to a substantial house bordered by wide extensive tiled terracing attractively decked out with raised flower beds.
The secluded pool is again elevated and provides stunning views over Competa and the national park beyond.
The complex comes with an additional aged cortejo which whilst having been updated retains its old world charm.The buildings are set in their own grounds which have been terraced and laid out with mature olive and almond trees;vines;a number of different fruit trees including figs,oranges,apples,peach,walnut.The land has the benefit of a laid out watering system
The present owner acquired the property in 1990 and after extensive renovations Villa Chile became a first class restaurant and bar with residential accommodation attracting its clientele from not only the immediate area but also from the coast and as far away as Mijas and Marbella.In the past Villa Chile has been particularly popular for large functions with its spectacular back drop and offering both indoor and outdoor dining facilities At a later date the cortejo’s drying beds were converted into a tiered terraced area and, with the benefit of its own substantial private water supply, added onto the existing business a small garden centre.
The owner decided some years ago to retire the businesses and now uses Villa Chile purely for residential purposes but retaining the bar area;utility rooms and cloakroom facilities
Includes a charming two bedroom guesthouse/staff cottage with stining views towards the sea.
Villa Chile’s size and truly superb location lends itself to once again being used as a business;its many charms and possibilities must make it one of the most sought after properties in the Competa area.
The property lends itself to any number of uses including a boutique hotel;B&B;restaurant;garden centre;a combination of uses. At the same time the complex offers enormous potential once renovated to form a splendid country residence
Competa’s unique charm and being located on the wine/olive route makes it a destination point ;coupled with the fact that its population has grown extensively over the last ten years and now comprises some 40% foreigners who have brought their own traditions,activities and way of life giving Competa a truly cosmopolitan air.Activities on offer include all types of outdoor sports such as rambling,mountaineering, cycling;mountain biking,canoeing,horse riding.Competa also has a flourishing artistic side hosting an annual Arts Fest as well as being interested in music, choral singing,and dancing.There are any number of clubs and classes covering such subjects as gardening,wine, cooking,pottery,sculpture to name but a few!
