Sitting on the hillside above the beautiful village of Competa, Villa Andalucía welcomes you with stunning Mediterranean and mountain views and the warmest welcome in the Axarquia. Owner Helen puts her heart and soul into giving her guests the very best of good times. Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do, it seems that Helen can arrange it!
Whitewashed walls and red pantile roofs blend smoothly with the verdant garden to create a glorious ambience in the sunshine. There are plenty of places to sit quietly in the sun (or shade) and of course a crystal blue swimming pool to relax in too. There are ample sunbeds for everyone.
Each room has an en-suite bathroom with nice fluffy towels and there's air-conditioning for both cooling and heating. In addition, there is a fridge and drink-making facilities with complimentary tea and coffee. There's a private terrace for each room too with sun loungers, a table and chairs, and a south-facing view that wraps around to catch the spectacular sunsets.
For most of the year daily breakfast is served in the garden where there is a view over the pool to the little village of Corumbela and right down the valley to the coast at Torre del Mar. In winter breakfast is served in the dining room. Continental Breakfast includes yogurts, a selection of ham and cheeses, salami, fresh tomatoes, crushed tomatoes with or without garlic and a selection of olive oil, boiled eggs, croissants, fruit, specialty bread, toast and homemade jam, tea/coffee and a choice of fruit juices. Why not try a typically Spanish breakfast consisting of a toasted baguette sprinkled with olive oil and crushed tomatoes with or without garlic spread on top, well seasoned with pepper? Of course, with an English owner, Villa Andalucia can also provide a full English breakfast too. Finally, indulge yourself one morning with a Champagne breakfast with smoked salmon with capers, Serrano and York ham, cheeses, speciality bread, croissants, tea/coffee and a choice of fruit juices and Cava.
There are lots of bars and restaurants in Cómpeta (24 at the last count) so lunch and dinner can be in a different place every day. On arriving in Villa Andalucia at the end of your journey, the freshly prepared Welcome Platters are an easy and appetising way to start your holiday. It includes an array of delicious cheeses, locally-cured hams, olives, speciality bread, avocados, tortilla, home-grown tomatoes, and other local delicacies, together with your choice of a beer, soft drink, wine or Cava.

Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|We stayed here for a week enjoying the blessed place, tried horse riding, did some trekking in the valley and experienced the little cosy village of Competa. We had a high quality treat as everything, without exception, was so nice, so clean and well taken care of.
You can have great breakfast and a luxury evening meal, if you order it, at your residence.
rnOur host Helen took care of us in a warm hearty way that gave the feeling of being safe and sound.
The atmosphere is exceptional pleasant and the room we stayed in left nothing further needed.
Because of its position uphill there was a nice regular breeze.
We can only highly recommend this fabulous place.
|I visited a friend in Competa and stayed at this lovely villa. Helen was so welcoming and very helpful. The whole place was immaculate and the gardens were beautiful. Not far to walk to the shops in Competa at all. Will definitely stay again when I'm next visiting.|
|Villa Andalucia came highly recommended by our friends who live locally. It's a beautiful property, very well maintained and spotlessly clean. My wife and I stayed in the Banana room, so called because of its shape. The room has a bedroom area separated by a curtain and a living / kitchen space. Very well equipped, including extensive library and board games. Very nice breakfast available as optional extra, cooked fresh to order by the owner Helen, who was most welcoming and helpful. Lovely pool and patio area, with incredible view of the mountainside all the way to the Mediterranean. Shortcut path to the village means the bars, restaurants and shops are only ten minutes away, although the 'path' is not for the faint hearted as it is quite steep and rocky.|
