Nestled on the mountainside, Finca Agujas offers peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting, 10 mins drive from the picture-perfect village of Competa with its many bars, restaurants and shops.

Our 3 bedroom (two twins, one double), 2 bathroom traditional Spanish cottage has been furnished to a high standard, providing free Wifi, washing machine, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, multi-channel UK internet TV and gas barbecue. There's even an Xbox, if, in the unlikely event, the kids are bored! All the bedrooms have air-conditioning/heating. Outside there's plenty of shaded space for cooking, eating and relaxing as well as an enclosed, good-sized swimming pool. Visitors are also very welcome to pick the home-grown oranges, lemons and almonds overhanging the terraces.

The property is managed and serviced locally by an English couple who live nearby.

It's approximately 35 minutes to the nearest beach at Torrox Costa and 45 mins to beautiful Nerja. Malaga airport is just over 1-hour away, while the Alhambra Palace can be done in a day. For those who prefer challenging walks, the national park is right on the doorstep.

About Robert & Angela Prior-Wandesforde

Angela and I live in Sevenoaks, England with our two teenage boys. Although it's a nice part of the world it's not quite Southern Spain in terms of proximity to the sea, spectacular mountain views or daily hours of sunshine! If, like us, you need these kind of attractions every now again you are more than welcome to come and enjoy them at our Finca.

Robert & Angela Prior-Wandesforde purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Robert & Angela Prior-Wandesforde chose Cómpeta

Having returned from sunny Singapore where we lived, worked and schooled for 8 years the first winter back in the UK proved somewhat of a challenge! This largely explained our decision to buy in Southern Spain. We wanted a property with character and breathtaking views where we could rest, relax and explore a new part of the world for us. After an extensive search we were lucky enough to find Finca Agujas. Unfortunately, with our children still in school, we can only spend limited time at the cottage over the next few years. We are, however, delighted to offer it to discerning visitors for their private use and enjoyment.

What makes this cottage unique

We have added several tasteful Moroccan touches to the property which we hope you will like. Many UK channels are available on the HD TV, while those so inclined are very welcome to use the Xbox 360. There are a lot of different games to choose from and three controllers. A washing machine is available for your convenience as well as a microwave and even a Nespresso coffee machine. Outside, guests can make use of the large gas barbecue.

Home from home in beautiful Competa

  • 5 of 5

Our second holiday at Finca Agujas was just as good - no, even better than our first time. This beautiful renovated finca is well equipped, all mod cons, very comfortable bed with quality linen, lovely pool. Great views. Comfy sunbeds and plenty of shade if you need it. The best gas bbq provided us with delicious evening meals on the terrace as we watched the shadoes creep up the distant mountains. A short drive or taxi ride (if you fancy a glass or two) took us into the beautiful village of Competa. Lots of restaurants to choose from. The perfect choice for a chill-out week.

This was our second time in Finca Agujas, and we wish we never had to leave... All about the house and the surroundings is just absolutely beautiful, well-maintaned and perfect. We - two adults and two younger kids - had the best holiday ever.

Lovely Finca in Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely, relaxing family holiday. The Finca is very well appointed and maintained. There are two lovely terrace areas with views across the hills to the distant Mediterranean. Very attractive at night with all the candles lit. Nice (smallish) pool ideal for cooling off in and lounging around. Lots of sun loungers and outside furniture. Owner very easy to deal with via internet.

Competa itself a gorgeous village.

Highly recommended; am planning to go back next year.

Excellent property, beautifully appointed with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. We have just returned from a weeks holiday. The Finca is situated overlooking stunning views. It is in a private and peaceful location, yet not far to the local town and its amenities.

The kitchen has everything you could wish for and we tended to cook at the Finca and eat al fresco most nights.

Overall quality family time in a wonderful setting and a Finca whose owners have considered the needs of their guests. Thank you!!

A lovely, comfortable house in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Finca Agujas is as pretty as it looks in the website photos - we weren't disappointed. Comfortable and relaxing, set on a hillside dotted with other similar houses but only a little way outside Competa, which is a very attractive town with decent shops and several restaurants. Great walks in the nearby national park. Robert was extremely helpful, providing lots of useful information about the house and area and responding quickly to queries. Highly recommended.

Car: necessary

Please note that the Finca is in a mountainous location. The road up from the coastal motorway to Competa is of good quality but very twisty. You are advised to hire an automatic car, unless you like to make a lot of gear changes! We would also suggest you don't use an Estate car or a low-slung vehicle with sporty tyres. The road from Competa to the cottage is narrow and bumpy in places.
