Beautiful country finca. The luxury of modern comforts & facilities with traditional styling. Near the white village of Competa. Breathtaking views of sea & mountains. Explore the national park.
The Andalusian home of a well known Rutland artist Finca Quixote nestles on the side of a south facing hill with breathtaking views across the mountains to the Mediterranean and beyond. Eagles from the adjacent natural park soar overhead. The outside terraces, courtyard and pool offer seclusion and privacy. Yet the white village of Competa, with its rich history, 500 year old church, pavement cafes, restaurants and quaint shops is only 5 minutes away.
The area is a walkers' paradise with extensive and well signposted walking trails. Alternatively the beaches of the Mediterranean are a 15 minute drive away; historical Granada with the world heritage site Alhambra less than an hour; Malaga, with its extensive shops and nightlife is even closer.
Finca Quixote is a beautiful traditionally designed home with all modern comforts and conveniences, easily accessible and 50 minutes from Malaga airport.
The house is approached along its tree lined drive and through a private walled courtyard, with fountain and outdoor dining furniture. From the well equipped and stylishly furnished lounge with its high beamed ceiling, french doors open on to a terrace with stunning mountain and Mediterranean views.

The double master bedroom has its own ensuite. The other twin rooms have easy access to the family bathroom.

The outdoor dining terrace comes equipped with gas barbecue, shaded six seat dining table and separate drinks area. The pool terrace has plenty of loungers.

"A place to stay!"
We stayed 10 days at the Finca Quixote and it was excectly what we were looking for. A very private place, no other buildings where directly next to the Finca.The house has a lot of space, even if we … More
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Finca Quixote is our home in Spain so we make sure it is properly equipped. We are so pleased you found everything you needed to conjure up some culinary master pieces you could eat under the Andalucian sky

"Wonderful warm pool, ideal for private bathing."
Our second holiday at this Finca and we enjoyed it even more than our first. It was very warm during our stay and, much as we like the heat, at night we prefer to be a little cooler and the wall mount… More
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Finca Quixote. You're quite correct about the pool. It is not overlooked and really private.

"Blissful break in breathtakingly beautiful setting."
The whole family had the most fabulous holiday at Finca Quixote, a beautifully maintained very individual and quirky residence which has everything a family could need for a long or short stay. Plenty sun traps for sun bathing and a great pool to cool down in and keep the exercise ticking over if so inclined. Close to the atmospheric white city of Competa with enough going on to please all age groups. Quickly get used to the mountain drives which allows for trips out to the local beaches. We took the bus for a day out in Malaga which is also easily accessible.
In short nothing to fault and a great deal to love! Wholeheartedly recommend and looking forward to our return trip!
Yes, Competa is a delightful village and easily accessible. We hope, that like many guests, you visit again.

"First class Finca in a wonderful area of Spain."
Sadly we only had time for a week at the Finca Quixote but enjoyed every minute. The pool, though small, is a gem and the water temperature in August was never less than 32 degrees. Bliss.
The property is very well laid out and we were never uncomfortably hot, the traditional layout and construction must have a lot to do with that.
When we holiday in Spain again this Finca will be at the top of our list.
Thank you for such a positive response. We are please you enjoyed the pool with its terrific views down the valley

"Everything you could wish for a perfect holiday!"
This is a beautiful well appointed property in a wonderful situation. The views are stunning, the atmosphere relaxing and the local market shopping is good and fresh.
Relaxation or night life, beach or mountains, history or nature - this area has it all!
We agree with you about the stunning views. We have enjoyed them for more than ten years and still marvel at just how amazing they are

"Finca Quixote has everything, charm, views to die for and seclusion if you want it."
Six of us spent a fantastic week in this wonderfully equipped, atmospheric and charming house. The kids loved the swimming pool, the long mountainous walks and the proximity to the social life in Competa and the coast. The adults enjoyed the splendid views , the very appealing temperatures and the wonderful local wine and food. If you want a holiday where you can have complete privacy in a charming Spanish house or mix it with meals and drinks in local towns you won't find a more appealing location and venue. We loved it.
Yes. Finca Quixote is excellent for both adults and children
