Andalucia, or Andalusia, is Spain's best region. It
covers the whole of the south of the country and encompasses a huge array of different places, climates and
accommodation. Whale watch and wind-surf in Tarifa, visit the
Sherry region of Jerez, visit the Alhambra in Granada, have a go at Flamenco,
walk in the unspoilt, empty and vast national parks, spot eagles and lizards,
paint, fish in Iznajar or simply relax!

|Competa is located within an hour of Malaga airport,
30 minutes from
unspoilt coast and just 5 minutes from one of the
many national parks of the region.
It retains the beautiful and traditional pueblo blanco town center but has
attracted plenty of Northern Europeans. This means there are plenty of
cosmopolitan options for eating and drinking and, although everyone does
not speak English, they are all welcoming and helpful.

|There are plenty of Competa rentals to be had in and around Competa. There are some amazing old town houses with crazy layouts and cute rooms. These houses are really romantic and will make you feel like you are really in a foreign country. Then there are a myriad of villas - from right on the town edge to up in the mountains. It is up to you if you want peace and quiet or would prefer to be within walking distance of the bars. Most villas have amazing views over the jagged mountain peaks - which form the backdrop to the village - and/or down to the crystal blue sea of the Costa del Sol. On very clear days you can see the mountains of Morocco. To look at some Competa Property click here.|
|Finally, to end, Andalucia is is simply an amazing place.
If you have not been yet, arrange a visit, and DO NOT stay in one of the naff and famous coastal
resorts - get out into the wilds and soak up the authentic and sexy Spanish
soul. Consider Competa for your stay as, in our view (we decided to live here) it
is one of the best bases in the region.
