The Andalucia region
It is easy to understand why Malaga City is dubbed the Capital of the Costa del Sol. Whereas it was once considered to be the poor cousin of Andalusia’s capital city, Seville, it now competes successfully for attention. Since the opening of the already well acclaimed Picasso Museum in 2003, cultural tourists have been flocking to this and the now beautifully refurbished birthplace of the great artist, all in the heart of the historic centre of the city.
As well as homage to the great Picasso, other great historic monuments include the imposing Baroque Cathedral, popularly known as ‘La Manquita’ (One Armed Woman), referring to its rather lopsided appearance due to the missing east bell tower. High on the hill above the city is the Parador (state run hotel) of great historic importance. It was once a Moorish castle and is a wonderful place to either stay the night or have a long lunch enjoying these privileged surroundings with panoramic views over Malaga city and out across the port to sea.
Although there was much destruction in Malaga, especially during the time of the Spanish Civil War, there is still plenty of proof of the Moorish occupation. Today you can visit the Moorish Alcazaba fortress, dating back to 1065, which also now features a very interesting archaeological museum.
There are also many churches in and around the centre, of great architectural and historic interest well worth visiting.
Nestling at the foot of the Sierra Tejeda and Almijara mountain ranges and situated some 50 km from the city of Málaga, the white village of Cómpeta appears with the unmistakeable fragrance of the muscatel grape, its old houses with traces of Moorish, Roman and Christian times and its new houses which are home to those who come in search of the sun.
In 1487, the year in which the name of Cómpeta appears for the first time in an official document, the old village had only 600 inhabitants. The only remaining relics of those times are stories and legends, together with the smell of rosemary.
Today this village in the interior of La Axarquía has a stable population of 3.500 inhabitants of which approximately 1.500 come from different parts of the world. It is no coincidence that the name Cómpeta means “crossroads” or “meeting point”. It is very much a place of rest among the earthly paradise that springs forth from the countryside. It is a coming together of races and tongues, customs and travellers which has not lost its Andalusian essence.
The traditional agricultural activities (the cultivation of vines, almonds and olives) have been joined by the real estate explosion of today and the subsequent growth of complementary services.
Sparkling evenings, peaceful nights, strolls, good cuisine and regional products make Cómpeta an option of which you must not fail to take advantage. It is certain that you will have no regrets and will want to return. Once you delight in the colour of the countryside and see the sea in the distance, you will understand that it is not necessary to dream – here, reality is the best dream of all.

"Needs a LOT of TLC"
Our family - 10 of us, stayed here at the end of August. For me, the only plus was the pool. We arrived to NO hot water in half of the house. And had to wait almost 4 hours before there was a response… More

"Fantastic relaxing holiday!"
Visited the casa tranquillo with friends in oct 2012.This Villa is situated in the mountains approx 1.5 miles from the picturesque town of Competa.The 1st thing that immediately strikes on arrival is the stunning views and how peaceful and private it is.The villa itself is very clean,well maintained and very well equipped.It has a great pool which isn't too deep making it ideal for kids and a terraced area with sun loungers to catch the rays aswell as a fully equipped BBQ area.The bedrooms are clean and spacious as are the 2 bathrooms.The kitchen again is very well equipped and the lounge area very comfortable with sofa bed and satellite tv.
The town of Competa is a taste of the 'Real spain'.Plenty of amenities i.e Banks,supermarkets etc and an excellent selection of bars where the locals and staff are welcoming and friendly.Would heartily recommend trying the tapas with your cold drink,it's excellent.
On the whole this was probably THE most relaxing trip i've ever eperienced in 35 yrs of travelling abroad and the casa tranquillo a fantastic base from which to explore the costa del sol.
