Overview

About the property

Holiday Home in Competa, Costa del Sol, Spain - Set in a Unique Location Offering Stunning Views of the Mediterranean and Mountains

The whole area is a haven for exploring on foot,with a 4x4, or indeed with your own mountain bikes, the property is located 8km from Competa and reached by a tarmac road and 1km of track. It can also be accessed from the coast up a 6km good unsurfaced road. The whole Competa/Sayalonga region is mountainous and the road winds its way up from the coast with a few steep drops. Therefore we do not recommend it for the nervous driver or people with vertigo. The house makes an ideal base for people who want to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a rural retreat but still be within easy reach of the Mediterranean sea and it's beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the house in the last week in May and were very lucky with the beautiful weather. The house is a peaceful, well equiped wooden house in a stunning landscape. The deck outside is wonderful for eating on, for reading and for watching the locals as they go about their work in the fields. We spent nearly the whole week in the house only going out twice for shopping - the place was so relaxing. We particularly loved the garden, the deck, the reading room and the plunge pool. The views from the house are of the sea, the local valley and the high mountains and are stunning. Lena was a welcoming and generous host who brought us to the house and provided basic food as we arrived on a Sunday with no shops open. She filled us in on the history of the house, what to do in the area and made us feel we had really arrived after only 10 minutes chatting. This was a lovely house and we came away relaxed after just a week.

Stunning Place, Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was lovely, the location was breathtaking (mountain track and all!) and we spent a lovely and relaxing week there. Lena was very friendly and our check in was great - we were so grateful she showed us the way! We rented a Jeep and found that it coped really well with the track, but our friends in a normal car managed the trip, they just had to take it more slowly.

We'd recommend this cabin to anyone who wants complete peace - it was so quiet and tranquil. We visited the beach at Torrox Costa and at Algorrobo Costa - love Rompeolas, the Chiringuito (beach club/restaurant/bar) at Algorrobo Costa. The market there is small but has a bit of everything.

All in all a great week, we loved relaxing by the pool and also on the massive terrace.

We hope to be back!

The pictures are old

Just all a bit tired and run down. If you are not very tall you might not be able to see the sea as the trees and bushes need trimming back.

Great few days at the cabin, superb friendly & informative hosts.

The views from the deck are amazing and well worth the drive from the main road.

I strongly recommend a visit for a truely tranquil break.

Map

Special interest holidays:

The whole of the surrounding countryside and the nearby Alpujarra mountain range give an opportunity to get off the beaten track and explore the truly stunning scenery. There are very few places left in Europe that one can really get away from the everyday tourist but this is one of them. For the 4 x 4 enthusiast a truly unique area where you can still use your vehicle to explore stunning mountainous areas.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is 6km/4 miles and a 20 minute drive. This is at the coastal town of El Morche. Nerja is a further 15km/10 miles.

Travel:

Malaga Airport is 40 miles and one hours drive, depending on traffic. Car hire is essential. anycarhire.com seems to offer the best rates. 1 week in May from 149 euros, 1 week in June from 162 euros, 1 week in July from 218 euros, 1 week in August from 218 euros, 1 week in September from 168 euros.

Distances:

8km/5 miles from Competa. 6km/4 miles from El Morche on the coast.

Further Details:

The white villages of Competa, Sayalonga, Canillias, Archez and Torrox are all within easy reach. Here you will find a superb array of restaurants and bars serving Menu del Dias in the week and typical Spanish Tapas and meals. There are supermarkets in Competa, or larger ones on the coast. You can find banks and ATM machines on the coast and in each village. Check out our other property, a beautiful white village townhouse located in the Algarrobo Pueblo Ref: S7086. Maybe you could have one week in this truly Spanish village followed by 1 week in the countryside. Look at www.andalucia.com for information and photos of Competa, Sayalonga and Torrox.
