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.

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.

Very peaceful, beautiful views.
Lovely 'finca', beautiful views, close to the village Competa. The whole family enjoyed it - felt relaxed as soon as we arrived.
Comfortable beds and plenty of appliances.
Thank you very much. We're delighted you all enjoyed your holiday.
Finca Agujas, Cômpeta
We had a wonderful 2 week stay which was due to the finca atmosphere, decorations and selected interior. We will for sure return one day. What we were promissed we got in full.
We have been asked how much of the area we discovered. NOTHING we have replied. We liked to stay "home", vizx.: at Finca Agujas. An atmost relaxing place to be.

Beautiful Finca in a stunning location
We had a wonderful week in this tasteful and we'll equipped Finca. Everything you could need for a truly relaxing holiday.
Thank you very much for your review. It's great you had such a good time and enjoyed the Finca.
Home from home in beautiful Competa
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.
It's great to know you found it just as enjoyable second time around. Thank you and please come again!
Returning visitors :)
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.
That's fantastic to hear. I'm very pleased you enjoyed it as much second time around. Please come again!
Lovely Finca in Beautiful Location
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.
Thank you very much for your review. It's much appreciated. I'm pleased you had such a good time and look forward to "seeing" you again.
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.
