The Andalucia region

Competa is situated in the Axarquia region, a beautiful whitewashed Andalusian village amidst the majestic mountain scape of the Sierra Almijara.

The village has Moorish roots, evident in the style of the village, with its winding, narrow streets and peaceful squares.

If you are looking for natural beauty then Competa and the Axarquia region are perfect for you.

The village is surrounded by olive groves and almond trees, which blossom in the spring. Competa is situated beside a 4,000 hectare wildlife reserve, which incorporates the Sierra Almijara, rising majestically to 2,000 metres above sea level.

The landscape leading down to the coast is filled with vineyards, olive and lemon groves, tropical fruits such as kiwi and mango, and views so sublime you will never want to leave. The area is particularly popular with wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers, who come to marvel at the eagles that roam the skies.

Competa enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate of hot summers and warm winters with an average of 300 days of sun a year. The proximity to the sea affords cooling breezes in the summertime; the height of the mountains in the region are often snow-topped in the winter, a beautiful sight to behold in the far south of Europe.


The beaches at Torrox Costa are about 30 minutes drive away with a large selection of restaurants along the promenade. You can also choose to visit the busier beaches at Nerja, where all major water sports are available including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Torrox Costa, Caleta and Torre del Mar, and the smaller villages between are worth a visit.


18 hole Baviera Golf course is just 30 mins drive away. Green fees are very reasonable. There is also Anoreta golf course to the east of Malaga.


During the winter months skiing and snowboarding can be found in the Sierra Nevada, near Granada, about two hours away by car.

There are several mountain villages within 10km to visit. Slightly further afield Nerja is well worth a visit (about 30 minute drive). Just 3 km from the centre of town are its fascinating caves, and 7 miles north is Frigliana, one of the prettiest villages in Andalucia with an important history. Torrox Costa, about 25 minutes drive away is also a pleasant, bustling place to visit, as is Granada and its magnificent palace, (about 2 hours away). Ronda also has many fascinating attractions.

There is plenty of choice as to how you spend your holiday if you choose to come to this beautiful part of the world. You may wish to spend some time relaxing at the apartment, or exploring the village of Competa. The village has Moorish roots, evident in the style of the village, with its winding, narrow streets and peaceful squares. There is no better place to people watch than the main square whilst enjoying a drink, and making time to visit the wine museum, or one of the shops selling local art, craft and produce. There is an abundant choice of cafes, restaurants and bars, as well as everything you need for a self catering holiday such as a choice of supermarkets as well as bakeries, green grocers, fishmonger, pharmacies, DVD rental, internet cafe and of course banks.

If you fancy something more active there is ample opportunity for walking, (maps showing detailed walk routes of varying complexities and difficulties can be obtained at one of the shops in town), and mountain biking, horse riding, off road motor cycling, caving, paragliding are available locally. The water park at Torre del Mar is good fun for the children.

With the coast close by, there is plenty of opportunity to experience the more contemporary side of Andalucía. A multitude of beautiful and interesting places to visit including Nerja, Frigliana, Granada, Ronda, Cordoba (2.5 hrs drive), Seville (3 hrs), to name a few. If you fancy venturing further, why not visit Gibraltar and Cadiz?
