Finca overview - owner's description

Country villa with private swimming pool on 2 ha terrain, enjoys spectacular views across the valley and south to the Mediterranean coast. (5 pers.)

Finca el Regalo is a extremely private Andalusian country villa situated on 20.000 m2 ground with a wonderful views of the Mediterranean. Newly built with the preservation of the Andalusian ambiance and heritage is tastefully decorated and furnished. The exterior of the property in no less impressive, terraced on different levels. The Mediterranean garden contains over 90 matured olive, avocado, mango and almond trees. A courtyard and ample terracing provide ideal spots for relaxing barbequing and dining. A pool (10 x 4.5 m) faces south and enjoys wonderful views of the surrounding terrain and the see beyond.
The villa consist of two separate units located on different levels. Property has a separate smaller annex house situated near the swimming pool.(10m x 4.5m). The pool is not suitable for very young children (2.0-1.3m deep). We are renting together the lover level of the main house and the annex house. The upper part of the main house stay closed during your stay.
You drive only 12 min. to the nearest village Competa where you can find all amenities. The half hour drive to the coast takes you to the resorts of Torrox Costa, Nerja, Torre del Mar, offering fine beaches, water sports, markets, many bars, restaurants and shops.
Be aware that you need a car for your stay in Finca el Regalo and you will be driving in the mountains of the rural Andalucía. The last 800 meters of the road to the house is unpaved (dirty track) in some places rugged and steep but in relatieve good condition and you do not need 4x4drive to pass trough. As a rule, please, drive in this region, very carefully. As a compensation you will get extreme privacy during your holiday stay. From June to end of September the property will be exclusively to your disposal and no other people will occupy the house during your stay. When you rent the house in another period you probably will have to accept presence of the owners in the property. Please, give us always the exact number of people in your party. We are preparing the house only for a given number of guests.

Competa & surroundings
Competa is situated 650m above sea level and due to its moderate and healthy climate a lot of people prefer this area.  Being situated some distance from the sea enables Competa to enjoy a very fine climate during the winter months. This old Moorish Town overlooking the Sierras is relatively free of tourism and still intrinsically Spanish in culture, bustling with local live. When you take a walk to Competa - which for centuries has been the capital of wine and resins - you will find yourself immediately immersed in all the charm of a village that, with its narrow white-washed streets and flower-covered balconies, appears impervious to the passage of time.
The village is very well served with an abundance of fine restaurants and bars each offering local cuisine or tapas at low prices. Competas inhabitants basically live from agriculture, especially wine growing, from which wines they obtain the "Moscatel wine" and "Uva Pasa" (Dry Grapes), both products internationally appreciates due to their excellent quality. Each year on 15th August Competa hosts a very famous wine festival called El Noche Del Vino (The Night of the Wine). At the end of July there is the annual Feria (country fair) which usually last a week when the local people hardly sleep at all.
For anyone who wishes to explore the foothills of Sierra Almijara the countryside surrounding Competa offers splendid views, excellent walking, bird watching and horseback riding. It is a good starting-point for excursions and hikers. The area is perfect both for walking in the mountains and relaxing on the beach. From December to April you can enjoy alpine ski sports in Sierra Nevada ski resort Sierra Nevada.

There are many places to visit around that offer a wide range of traditions, beauty, history and amusements. The Alcazaba in Málaga, with the port and the city itself and the Piccaso museum ( ) Córdoba, with its grand Mosque  Granada, with its incomparable Palace of the Alhambra or the beautiful gardens of Seville and, as a backdrop, the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada  - are just some of the examples. In Nerja you should visit the most spectacular attraction - fascinating caves, located just three kilometres from the centre of town. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains. For the more adventurous, Madrid is only a 3-hour train drive away and Morocco is just across the Straight of Gibraltar.

Friends from Leeds, United Kingdom Aug 2016

We had a wonderful time at the Finca El Regalo. As two couples with two babies the set up worked perfectly with each family having one self contained unit. The house was well equipped with everything you needed, and the chap who met us on arrival was only up the road, and very accommodating if anything arose.

The location is simply wonderful. Completely private with beautiful views down the valley to the sea. What this does come with is a challenging drive down the hillside. Once completed a couple of time the task seemed far less daunting, and would not put us off visiting again.

About a 15 minute drive is the village of Cómpeta where there are an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops but it retains a very traditional Spanish charm. The gellateria comes highly recommended!

As I've said, we would not hesitate to recommend, and we hope to visit again.

Family from Weymouth, United Kingdom Aug 2014

We were looking for a villa away from the crowds and this property fulfilled and pased these requirements. You need to do a little bit of pre tavel homwwork to find the location of this property which will pay divedends when you arrive. Once you leave the made up road you do wonder if you are heading in the right direction as the road is rough but follow the information provided. The Villa was superb, well equiped and met all of our needs with total isolation peace and quiet. The accommodation is split into two areas the lower unit, the main area and the upper unit with the pool annex. This is not suitable for very young children as they would be up there un-suppervised, The pool area has pleanty of space and areas of shade to get out of the sun. The pool is of a good size but with only a ladder for access into the shallow end, which I would estimate to be 1,25 - 1,5 Mtrs may not again be suitable for young children but for us this was not an issue. A fantastic Villa and we all had a really great holiday.

Sorry I have not been in contact sooner but it has taken me some time to get back to normal after such a relaxing holiday. We had a wonderful time at your beautiful villa and enjoyed our stay very much. It really is in a stunning position and we particularly liked Competa. Ad, your house manager, was very helpful without being intrusive. We would certainly go back in the future and hope we left everything in order after our departure. Best regards Paul
