  • 5 of 5

This is a great house of character and style which suited our tastes and sensibilities perfectly. The listing description is accurate regarding layout and the property is clean and well maintained with good facilities for a family. There were seven of us - four adults and three children. Plenty of space to come together or have time to ourselves. Competa is the real Spain. The locals are very friendly and love children. Access to a swimming pool at a local hotel was good and well supervised. Situated north of Malaga, Competa nestles on the mountain side and there are spectacular views and lovely walks, short or long, round about. If you choose to eat meals out there are plenty of places to choose from and also a fabulous Italian ice cream shop in the village. Also several local supermarkets. The property owner is friendly and informative, keen to ensure that guests get the most out of their stay. There is lots of information in the house about the area and places to visit. It is ideally situated for visiting the caves at Nirja and spending a day in Malaga. Good road networks. Also the Alhambra at Grenada which we booked in advance by phone while we were there. Whether visiting places of interest or just relaxing all in all we had a really good holiday.

Cudowne Andaluzyjskie Wakacje :)

  • 5 of 5

Kochana Sandro ;) spędziliśmy w Twoim uroczym domu piękne chwile. Znaleźliśmy tu to czego szukaliśmy , spokój, tradycyjny wystrój i to ...coś :) czego zawsze szukamy w odwiedzanych miejscach. Casa la Piedra to dom z duszą :)

Znajdziecie tu wszystko co potrzebne w wyposażeniu , wiele magicznych zakątków na siestę z książką oraz zadbany taras z ładnym widokiem . Dom jest bardzo dobrze położony, za rogiem dobrze zaopatrzony sklepik , kilka kroków do głównego placu z uroczym kościółkiem. Na basen trzeba przejść ok 10 min drogi , ale jest zadbany choć sporo tam ludzi . Sandra wszystko nam opowiedziała i kontakt z nią był bardzo dobry . Polecamy Wam spędzenie choć kilku dni w tym uroczym, zgubionym w górach miasteczku a Casa la Piedra jest jedyna w swoim rodzaju . Gorąco polecamy i pozdrawiamy CIę Sandro ! To był cudowny czas :) Dziękujemy.

Très jolie maison dans un superbe village

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné 2 semaines dans la casa del piedra de Sandra. C'est une maison à plusieurs niveaux et des petites pièces. Elle est joliment décorée et bien équipée mais il manque le lave vaisselle... La maison est au coeur du magnifique village blanc de Competa, à 2 pas de la place principale et des commerces. L'accueil des restaurateurs et des commerçants est très sympathique. La piscine de l'hôtel est idéale pour se reposer et se baigner. Entrée 5 euros avec un transat et matelas confortable. Il y a de nombreuses balades à faire en partant du village. En prenant la voiture, vous pouvez remonter le rio Chellar à Nerja, vous baigner sur les plages sauvages après Maro ou visiter Malaga ! N'hésitez plus !

ein Haus mit Seele

  • 5 of 5

Wir lebten 2 Wochen in diesem 400 Jahre alten Haus im Zentrum von Cómpeta.

Obwohl wir nur sonnige Tage hatten, waren die Abende so kühl, dass wir gerne die Heizung im Haus nutzten um wohlige Wärme im ganzen Haus zu haben. Alle Geschäfte und Lokale des Ortes sind unmittelbar benachbart; besonders empfehlenswert das Restaurant „Pilone“. Im Haus selbst ist alles bestens ausgerüstet um selbst zu kochen.

Direkt vom Haus weg kann man bergauf in die Sierra wandern, bergab über Terrassen, die mit Obstbäumen und Gemüse bepflanzt sind, auf gleicher Höhe bleibend in malerische Nachbarorte. Ende Februar standen die Mandelbäume in voller Blüte, die Orangen-und Zitronenbäume voll mit saftigen Früchten behangen, die wir auch vom Boden aufklauben konnten.

Von der sonnigen Terrasse hatte wir einen Blick über den Ort bis zum Meer; an klaren Tagen bis zum Küstengebirge von Marokko. Unvergesslich auch ein Ausflug nach Granada, wo wir von der Alhambra einen herrlichen Blick auf die bis etwa 2000 Meter herab tiefverschneite Sierra Nevada hatten. Im Meer waren Ende Februar schon einige Mutige imWasser.

quelle agréable maison!

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 2 semaines de rêve dans la „casa piedra „ à Competa. Cette maison nichée au centre de la ville a une atmosphère paisible et chaude. On sent son âme de 400 ans dans les coins et recoins, aux nombreux niveaux qui finissent par déboucher sur une superbe terrasse avec une vue splendide jusqu’à la mer. .Le coin cuisine est très pratique et la grande table de la salle à manger convie à l’échange , aux différents jeux de société ou même à achever une peinture commencée dehors pendant la journée. Ce ne sont pas les motifs qui manquent!

Grâce à la gentillesse de la propriétaire Sandra Castello nous avons découvert de très jolies randonnées surtout près de la „Fabrica de la luz“. Sandra qui participe activement à l’essor de la vie culturelle de Competa nous a aussi informé d‘une soirée andalouse que nous aurions ignoré sans elle. De plus ce fut pour nous très intêressant d’approfondir grâce à elle l’histoire du passé de la petite ville de Competa ainsi que son devenir actuel.
