I have lived in Competa for 15 years. I am only 5 minutes away from the apartment.

LINDA DRYBURGH purchased this apartment in 2015

Why LINDA DRYBURGH chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Whilst the apartment needed completely renovating, I could see how light and airy it was and how it could be once renovated. I might even live there myself in years to come at it is very well situated for all amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

Exceptionally well situated for all amenities in the village and plenty of parking space very near the apartment. Light and airy.

Great stay. Ideal apartment in the mountains with lovely views.

Well equipped, found nothing we couldn't find. Thank you Linda for

our welcome pack of groceries.

Eleven days of sunshine and two days of rain, good for March.

Highly recommended.

Superb appartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a superb apartment in Competa. We had a warm welcome from Linda who told us lots of interesting information about the local area. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well maintained and equipped with everything we could have wanted. The location was good, close to shops and cafes with plenty of good quality restaurants nearby.

We had a lovely stay in this apartment and would certainly recommend to others. Thank you, Linda for the welcome pack too!

Great peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, very clean and well equipped. Brilliant welcome pack on arrival, thanks Linda. Competa is a great place, some nice shops/cafe bars. Only 35 minute drive to awesome beaches. We particularly enjoyed Maro beach, but be careful parking there, as we got stung with 100euro parking fine😟. Hopefully We can return next year.

Fantastic apartment and perfect hostess

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment in great position in lovely Competa. The apartment is so well equipped and absolutely spotless. Linda the owner is the perfect hostess with plenty of useful information to get the best out of your stay. Such good value for money and the welcome pack and bottle of wine on arrival is a bonus. Thank you Linda for a great stay. Kathy and Dave

Comfortable, Well maintained and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The best apartment on our trip. So spacy, nicely decorated, a good balcony with a view and sun all day. And Linda had filled the fridge with breakfast, eggs, bread etc. She was the perfect landlord. The price for these wonders was uncredibly low. A perfect stay!

Apartment just as lovely as the photographs

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Competa. In walking distance from car park. Layout designed well. Apartment spotless. Great view from our balcony. Welcome pack on arrival. Local walks, museums & National Park on edge of village, uphill. Locals very welcoming. Plenty of restaurants to choose from & shops. Worth a visit to Nerja on the coast & Alhambra Palace in Granada. Buses available from Plaza if you do not want to drive for a day. A delightful find.
