The Andalucia region
Malaga, on the Costa del Sol, is recorded as one of the oldest cities in the world. It is well worth a visit for the cafe's and the Picasso museum (Pablo Picasso was born here) and a wander round the streets. There's some fantastic sculptures and quirky artwork dotted here and there and beautiful architecture. If you are interested in food, the municipal market is one of the best. Stalls and stalls of fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables.
El Torcal de Antequera is a nature reserve in the Sierra del Torcal mountain range located south of the city and is breathtaking. There's a choice of routes to follow through the reserve. Other places of interest are Frigiliana, Velez Malaga, Nerja and Comares.
Competa is situated in the Axarquia region and is 636 metres above sea level. It is a stunning white washed Andalusian village with moorish roots with winding narrow streets and peaceful squares. It enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate of hot summers and warm winters - an average 300 days of sun a year.
A 4,000 hectacre wildlife reserve is in close proximity and offers some amazing walks.
Competa has a very welcoming community and friendly cafe and shop owners help to make it a lovely place to stop for a coffee or a cold beer and tapas. There's horse riding nearby and plenty of walks.

"A beautiful villa in a stunning location - a perfect break from our busy lives"
The villa is in a wonderful spot, with stunning views. The pool area is lovely and has the sun all day. The garden is a great bonus, with fresh herbs, chillies, lemons to spice up any bbq. (NB there are steep steps leading from pool area to lower terrace and garden, so not suitable for families with small children.) It was just the two of us staying there and whilst the villa sleeps 8 we didn't feel like we were rattling around as the living areas are not huge (but plenty of room for a large group). The bed has the most comfortable mattress we have ever had away from home. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Competa is within walking distance, though as the villa is on the mountainside above the village, walking down is fine, but walking up a bit hard going - but we found after a few glasses of wine it didn't seem so bad! Competa is a charming village with plenty of good places to eat. We had a wonderful stay.
Thank you for your lovely review. In light of your comments we are in the process of installing child-friendly gates.
