Townhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our superbly renovated townhouse is located on Calle Andalucia in the heart of Competa, a traditional andalucian village nestled in the Sierra de Almijara Mountains. Whilst in a quiet area the house is only a 2-minute walk from the main square of Plaza Almijara. All restaurants, tapas bars and the Hotel Balcon de Competa communal swimming pool with tennis courts are only a short walk away, can be used for a small fee.
The property was sensitively restored in 2005 to offer comfortable accommodation and has a very homely and spacious feeling right the way through. It maintains a wonderful rustic style with original wooden beams, window shutters and wood burners in both the lounge and kitchen. The entire house has been furnished to a very high standard with charming bamboo lamps and soft lighting throughout. Built as a typical andalucian townhouse it remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The ground floor comprises the master bedroom, guest toilet and under stair storage. The bedroom has plenty of wardrobe space and a large king size bed. The ensuite bathroom has a very large jacuzzi bath and a separate shower. The under stair storage houses the freezer and washing machine.
The first floor consists of the second bedroom with ensuite and the kitchen/diner. The kitchen was updated in 2007 and has all amenities including plenty of surface space and a wood burner. The dining table is adjacent to the kitchen with large shutters next to it that open on to a small juliet balcony. The second bedroom has a double bed and a large wardrobe together with shutters that open to another small balcony. The room has an ensuite bathroom with shower and bath.
The second floor consists of the large lounge and living space. There is a wood burner, free view sky T.V and a 42 inch flat screen T.V and DVD player. The room has shuttered windows throughout and a further small balcony overlooking the pedestrian walkway below. Together with the two-piece sofa there is an additional sofa bed in this room should it be required.
Stairs from the lounge lead to the terrace, which has the most amazing views of the village and the rolling hills down to the Mediterranean. Complete with sun beds and a table and chairs it is the perfect place to dine or BBQ.

The Andalucia region
Spain's region of Andalucia is composed of eight provinces, stretching from the south-east to the south-west of the country, each one named for its capital city: Cadiz, Cordoba, Jaen, Huelva, Almeria, Malaga, Granada and Seville.
Once Spain´s poorest region, Andalucia - and specifically the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Seville - is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, thanks to its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, spectacular mountain ranges, fabulous monuments and high-spirited people who live life to the full and are well known for their exuberance, warmth and hospitality.
Andalucia is also home of flamenco which can be best enjoyed at the region´s countless ferias and romerias.
Cómpeta is surrounded by the Tejeda and Almijara mountains and is an ideal base for serious hikers and walkers, and is equally as pleasant for those who just like a stroll. A welcoming hamlet, it is a great base to relax or visit nearby villages or costal towns. With the national park cradling the village it offers stunning scenery. Cómpeta has Roman origins and with its narrow cobbled streets it is a fascinating place to explore.
Cómpeta has many excellent restaurants and several bars, serving a selection of tasty tapas. Seafood lovers will not be disappointed - there is an abundance of fresh fish. The shops are sprinkled around the town and include several good supermarkets, fishmonger, pharmacies, post office, hairdressers, banks and an internet cafe. There is also a small market on Saturday mornings.
The village is famous for its locally produced Vino de Terreno, pottery and honey. The hotel in the village also offers for a small charge its lovely pool in the high season and the use of the tennis court all year round.
Horse riding, mountain biking and quad biking are also popular pastimes in the surrounding hills.
The coastal towns and beaches of Nerja and Torrox together with the water park in Torre Del Mar are all only 30 minutes away. A daily bus service operates to Malaga via the coast.
Whatever time of the year Cómpeta is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
