About this location

The Andalucia region

Costa del Sol is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Spain. It's golden-sand beaches and a sunny weather all year round, it draws holiday makers from all over the world.

Málaga is a port city in Andalusia, southern Spain. Together with the Rincón de la Victoria, Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Alhaurín de la Torre creating a urban area named Greater Málaga

Málaga is surrounded by mountains, lying in the southern base of the Axarquía hills, and two rivers, the Guadalmedina - the historic centre is located on its left bank - and the Guadalhorce, which flows west of the city into the Mediterranean.

The inner city of Málaga is just behind the harbour. The quarters of El Perchel, La Trinidad and Lagunillas surround this centre. The city has much revenue from the agricultural sector and from tourism.


The white washed village of Competa (called the bride when lit up at night) has a variety of good eating places of individual Merritt, along with tapas bars and night club/disco bars for the younger age groups.

The ancient village with its charming old buildings and winding lanes remains very traditional with its central plaza and ancient church. Music and fiestas are a way of life in Spain, Competa has its local talents, live music both traditional and modern to enjoy. Local market is held on Saturday mornings ,supermarkets with a variety of shops throughout the village.

The village also has its own tourist information office. Quite apart from the lovely mountain village of Competa many smaller mountain villages exist for you to visit .the whole area is situated on the fringe of the national park with outstanding views and areas to explore with picnic area and shallow river bathing in crystal clear mountain water.

The retreat is just three klm's (ten minutes drive to the village of competa)and within easy drive distance of many places of interest.

Local beaches, extensive shopping facilities and golf course.

"The retreat, a perfect hideaway"

We have been staying in the Competa area for many, many years but this has been our best so far thanks to the Retreat. The Retreat is what it promises to be in the advert. It is a beautiful renovated… More

"Peace and tranquility. ............."

We had a fabulous stay at The Retreat in late September and would highly recommend it. The , farmhouse is beautiful, furnished with antiques (and even a piano!) and the outside areas are delightful with lots of lovely planting and trees and numerous terrace and patio areas on which to relax and eat outside - the pool area has gorgeous bougainvillea (thanks spell-checker!) climbing up the house to one side and views through the trees acoss the valley to the other!! It really is SO peaceful that on the very odd occasion a local farmer had the audacity to make a brief noise whilst working it was commented on - I think this happened about four times in our week long stay!!
Beth was lovely - helpful if needed but never intrusive and our only problem now is deciding whether to return in May or September next year!!

"Beautiful old farmhouse with private pool - maximum chillout"

This is a really pretty farmhouse, about 200 years old, full of character. The decor makes it feel like someones home rather than a letting venue (not a piece of IKEA in sight!). Multiple terraces and then steps down to a pool with stunning bougainvillea. It is up in the hills so a pretty winding route (not fun at night). 6 knm outside Competa (flat winding route in) and about 30 mins from Beach - go to Nerja - eastern most beach Burriana for watersports. Nerja old town nice too.
It is remote, no phone signal so great for unwinding. Beth the owner lives next door and is very helpful.

"the best holiday ever...... in a very special home"

I have been visiting the Retreat for over 7 years now and the reason we go back each time is because we absolutely love the Farmhouse it is beautiful and comfortable, kept clean and tidy and is a very special place indeed. The owner is on hand to tell us whats on and advise us on places to visit. We have stayed with just family and we have taken friend with us and we have always had an amazing time. i would recommend this place if you want to have a fab holiday in great surroundings, a very special place.
