The Costa del Sol region
As the largest region in Spain, Andalucia adds an overwhelming wealth of scenery, culture and history to its brilliant beaches and coastline. Spanish people here are very friendly to foreigners coming to live or vacation in their village and make you feel very welcome. Their are many places of interest within driving distance. They include the underground caves at Nerja, the city of Malaga which has been transformed in recent years since the opening of the Picasso museum in 2003. The city of Granada, home of the Alhambra Palace and flamenco along with winter Skiing makes a visit a great option (95 miles from Finca A Coruna most on motoway.) This historic cities of Cordoba and Seville are both within an easy drive. As they say smile your in Spain.
Competa is situated in Axarquia, the coastal province east of Malaga. Competa is set some 600 metres above sea level in the Sierra Almijara, the snow capped range of mountains between Malaga & Granada, that stretch down to the warm Mediterranean. Nestled in the mountains and surrounded by olive groves and almond blossoms, Competa offers the hospitality of the Andalusians who gladly share with you their leisurely lifestyle.
The local climate produces more than 300 sunny days a year and temperatures are pleasant all year round.
The Andalusian culture offers a mix of Mediterranean and Arab customs dating from earlier times. Glorious cities like Malaga, Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla are nearby.
The village is surrounded by a 4,000 hectares wide wildlife reserve, the Sierra Almijara, with peaks as high as 2,068 metres. A stunningly beautiful natural park where you can go for walks to encounter mountain goats, eagles and a very rich vegetation.
Yet, the sandy beaches and coastal villages of Axarquia are also very near. Competa has 35 bars and restaurants offering excellent tapas and meals at low prices.
The area of Competa has one of the best climates in Europe, and the land surrounding the village and down to the coast is filled with vineyards, olive and lemon groves, tropical fruits such as avocado, mango and kiwi, all idealy suited to this sub tropical climate. The locally produced Moscatel wine is famous throughout the region. You can visit one of the bodegas and taste it yourself!
The village of Competa is close to the smaller villages of Canillas de Albaida, approximately 2kms, both of which can easily be reached on foot from the finca, which is perfect for visitors wishing to eat out in one of the many fine local restaurants and who wish to take a drink with their meal. Both villages are served very well with Supermarkets and splendid gift shops. The many fine coastal areas and resorts such as Nerja, Torrox Costa, Torre Del Mar and Malaga are all close by car or public bus. The whole area of Competa is a walker's paradise with a wide range of walks in the Natural park accessed directly from the finca. Other local facilities include tennis, pony trekking and horse-riding and even Paragliding for those brave enough to enjoy this wonderful countryside from the air.

“Great for a relaxing holiday”
We first stayed at Finca a Coruna in June 2011 and had such a wonderfully relaxing holiday we decided to go back in May this year (2012). The Finca has beautiful views, and is very secluded, ideal for relaxing around the pool or on the shady terrace (which was a welcome relief from the hot sun). Bedrooms were very clean and comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. There was a good selection of books, games and CDs/ DVDs in the cosy living room. Quite a long hilly walk into Competa so because of the heat we only did this in the evenings, but some very good restaurants made the trip worthwhile. An ideal holiday for "recharging your batteries".
“Ideal Location and full of character”
Stayed many times in Competa before ,and this is by far the best accomodation we have rented You feel immediatley at home and with the advantage that It is walkable to the village , And the views are wonderfull spent every evening with a cold drink staring down the valley . Missing it already .
