Finca Alberto is an original farmhouse with huge rustic charm. It has recently been enlarged, upgraded and refurnished to make a spacious and luxurious holiday villa with all the comforts of modern living.
The single storey house sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms. 3 large, ensuite double bedrooms and a smaller twin bedded room. There is also a separate toilet/basin. The master bedroom has doors leading out to a secluded terrace which is well furnished and has a Moroccan wall fountain. Another double bedroom has doors leading out to the garden.
The sitting room is large and beautifully decorated. It is flooded with natural sunlight all day. There is a double archway leading into the formal dining room - also well lit by natural light.
Off the dining room there is a big, well-equipped kitchen. The room has all modern amenities and plenty of work top space.
There is also a small laundry room with washing machine and iron.
The house has air-conditioning and the bedrooms also all have fans.
Sitting on the hillside with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, the house nestles in its garden of approx 2 acres with avocado, mango, orange, lemon, fig and olive trees. Bouganvilla covers walls and makes welcome shade for the terrace we call The African Room.
There is a large (9m x 5m) private pool situated in another terrace below the house. Here you will also find sun-loungers, an outside shower, a traditional brick b-b-q and a flower covered eating area. There is plenty of outside space for guests to enjoy the sunshine, play or relax.
There is car parking space for 2 cars under the shade of grape vines.
Although only a 5 minute drive from the charming hillside town of Competa, Finca Alberto enjoys seclusion and complete privacy. Competa is very pretty with narrow winding streets and white-washed walls covered with geraniums - and a very friendly local population.
Finca Alberto is only available for rent during July and August.
Finca Alberto is well used and well loved by us and our 4 children with their families. Every time we visit we always have another one of the best holidays ever! The house, its facilities and the surrounding countryside are thoroughly enjoyed. Our holidays range from paradise for the under 6's to the happiest of times for the over 60's - and everything in between!
Marilyn, the house was just lovely. I can tell you put a lot of care into the maintenance and decoration. We were very comfortable.
La Finca Alberto est une très jolie maison, décorée avec gout , calme et entourée de terrasses toutes fleuries et successivement ombragées dans la journée.
Un très agréable lieu de vacances!
stunning villa 5 mins from competa with all the amenities, tastefully decorated and large enough to house our party of 6. the pool is amazing and the gardens are well maintained. I would recommend any family wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle to come here. The town is very cheap to eat and shop in compared to the coast.
Beautiful house with lots of well decorated and furnished rooms, good beds... Lovely pool, beautiful views, exotic garden!
We had some rain, so we were glad to have a 4x4 to tackle the dirt road.
The service of the caretaker was excellent.
we really enjoyed the Finca Alberto with our friends and family. It's a nice and comfortable house with a beautiful, refreshing pool and gardens with fresh fruits and lovely flowers! All around are places to sit and relax. The bedrooms are very neat and well furnished. And the view is breath taking. Competa is a 5 minutes drive and a nice, cosy village with some good restaurants and shops.It's a little bit difficult to find the house, but you can Daisy ask for a better discription. I recommend!
"Superbe maison et environnement décoration de goût. Les ventilateurs dans chaque chambres sont très agréables. Rien ne manque ! Piscine superbe et sécurisée."
"Superbe endroit, vue magnifique, calme absolu, arrangé et fleuri avec beaucoup de soins et de goût, bref un petit coin de paradis pour des vacances en famille"

Finca Alberto is about 5 minutes by car from Competa with its narrow winding streets, whitewashed houses and pots of geraniums clinging to most walls and windowsills. Competa has restaurants, bars and tapas bars, clubs, supermarkets, banks, shops – even a gym – and a very friendly local population.
Competa is an active agricultural town steeped in history dating back to the Moors. The surrounding hillside is clothed in grape vines and olive trees. The sweet – and potent – wine made from the area’s muscatel grapes is renowned as the best in the whole province. Each August 15th Competa celebrates its fiesta, the Noche del Vino - with revellers enjoying free vino. Each village also holds an annual Feria and Easter Week (Semana Santa) is celebrated throughout Andalucia with magnificent religious processions and traditional costumes.
Goats and their goatherds roam the mountains during the day and you can hear their bells ringing as they come down into the valleys for milking at night.
The locally made honey is delicious!
Most villages will host a weekly market. Competa’s is on Saturday mornings. It is particularly good for fresh fruit and veg, but also has stalls selling spices, plants, nuts & olives, shoes, clothes and bric-a-brac.
One of the highlights of the area is hillwalking in the Sierra Almijara mountains above Competa. There is a huge and beautiful National Park – dirt tracks and spectacular views over the Mediterranean to Africa – a walkers’ paradise. There is also pony-trekking, tennis and paddle tennis, jeep safaris, quad bike hire, caving, canyoning and paragliding available. There is a water park in Torre del Mar.
The whole area is famous for its ceramics and you will find many shops selling their locally made fare.
Competa is a 30 minute drive from the coast and resorts of Nerja, Torre del Mar, Torrox and Malaga – all of which offer sunbathing, swimming and watersports on relatively uncrowded beaches. There are restaurants all along the beaches serving grilled sardines, paella etc. Don't miss visiting the famous caves of Nerja where ballets and plays are staged during the summer.
There are many golf courses dotted about the whole area!
You will find wonderful shopping, night life and restaurants all along the coast.
The Alhambra in Granada is certainly worth a visit. Malaga and Ronda are also important and interesting.
The thing I like best is to lie beside the pool at Finca Alberto, dipping in every so often to cool down, and just winding down completely in the peace and warmth!
