This lovely wooden chalet is set in 2 acres of grounds and gives you the opportunity to see and explore a very different Spain. The large deck overlooks the garden planted out with oranges, lemons, Grapefruit, peaches, eucalyptus and olive trees, with a shaded seating and dining area offering stunning views of the Mediterranean and the dramatic backdrop of Maroma Mountain, part of the Alpujarra National Park.

For people wanting something very different from the normal Spanish holiday, come and have an adventure and see what other holidaymakers never get to experience.

There is a huge added bonus that the coast and the beaches are only a 4 mile drive down a part paved , part un surfaced road, and the famous village of Competa is only 6 miles away, with a short track leading to a tarmac road. Here you will find an abundance of wonderful restaurants and bars where you can taste the local cuisine and wines. Also a supermarket, banks, post office and internet cafe.

Further details indoors

The house is on two levels with the a lower level done in Spanish Finca style. Here there is a double bedroom, shower room with sink and toilet. Also a large lounge with a TV and a large selection of DVD's. The ground level is all in wood and has a further double bedroom, bathroom with bath, sink and toilet.

A further two bedrooms are in the roof space and ideal for the youngsters, or young at heart!

The kitchen and dining room plus conservatory all lead out to the large deck overlooking the Mediterranean and the mountains.

Smoking is not a problem in the outside areas.

PLEASE NOTE - that the whole of this area is fairly mountainous and accessed by steep windy roads or tracks, and although perfectly safe, are not advisable for people who suffer from vertigo or are of a nervous disposition.

Further details outdoors

To the front of the property in a secluded and private location is the pool which is 4m6 in diameter and 1m2 in depth. Nearby is the beautifully built stone barbecue and a further deck for catching the morning sun.

There is a pathway winding down the hill to our stream in the valley, this does dry up in the summer, but is still a beautiful location for a picnic.

Further details

Car hire is advisable so you can discover for yourselves all the beautiful white villages etc in the area.

The Andalucia region

The region is East of Malaga and is renowned for having the best climate in the whole of Europe. The backdrop of the Alpujarra mountain range but being so close to the sea, make this a truly unique location for guests to enjoy both beach and a countryside holiday.


The house is located approximately 8km from Competa, Sayalonga and Torrox . The whole area is a haven for the off road enthusiast or simply those wanting to discover Real Spain. The house is reached from Competa by a tarmac road with just 1km of track or can be accessed from the coast up a good track of 4 Miles/6 Km. The track is suitable for all cars with a good part of it concreted.

The house is ideal for those guests who want to be far from the madding crowds but not isolated. A real chance to get away from the usual tourist spots and go and discover the beauty of the National Park.

"avoid at all costs"

Me and my wife have just come back from a week in the casa de madera log cabin,which is very poorly maintained property, Not cleaned very well beforehand if at all, The general safety aspect of the … More

Firstly I would like to point out that after leading this couple up the house in my saloon car, I spent over half an hour showing them around the house. I left them happy and content asking them to contact me if they needed anything or had any problems.
I did, however, notice that the gentleman, who had been driving, was obviously suffering from a debilitating illness and I was therefore, surprised at their choice of location.
Secondly, I was not contacted by phone or email about any of these issues during or even after their stay and had thought that with the fantastic weather that week, that they must have enjoyed their holiday.
So you can imagine my horror and pure bewilderment when I read this malicious review full of untruthful allegations. I cannot believe that they did not have the courtesy to contact me personally and can only assume that they did not read my advert carefully, if at all, as to where the house was located and that if was spread over three floors!
As it happens if they had bothered to contact me I could have easily relocated them to our other property near the coast , which would have been much more suitable for them considering this persons condition.

"Absolutely Fabulous"

This was just what we were looking for. A superb mountain location but close enough to the sea, a well equipped finca, fantastic swimming pool and fabulous hosts. The journey up to the accommodation is an adventure. Upon arriving the views are incredible. The finca is a wonderful place to stay and rest, however the pool is so tempting as is the choice of charcoal or gas BBQ. We were able to pick limes, fresh figs and were even given red and green grapes by the Spanish locals who were harvesting just below the finca. In August the weather is hot but we became accustomed to it very quickly and the finca remained comfortable with the fans provided and of course the pool to assist.
We did venture down the track and think that the caves are well worth a visit in Nerja, as well as the donkey sanctuary. As far as food shopping goes, we found that the Mercadona in El Morche the best and most Spanish - fabulous Langoustines and selection of Spanish wines. WE enjoyed the marina at Calista too. The hosts Lena and Rich are such fun and very helpful. This is a place that as a family of two children and two adults we shall return to for more!
