Cómpeta Escapes are specialists in helping you find the perfect holiday in Competa. Sun lovers, walkers, cyclists, photographers and foodies love to holiday in this warm and welcoming friendly pueblo.
We first stumbled across Competa in 2017 and we instantly fell in love with its charm and beauty. Following an extensive search for a new home, nowhere pulled on the heartstrings quite like Competa. Having run a successful 13 bed hotel in England, we knew that we wanted our new life in Spain to involve hospitality. Competa with its beautifully paved streets, scented flowers adorning the balconies of the white townhouses and mountain views fitted our requirements perfectly and we were instantly smitten.
Initially, in July 2017 we purchased the newly renovated No 9 townhouse. We knew the townhouse needed to offer a luxury stay but we also wanted to reflect the Spanish charm of the pueblo. Guests absolutely adore the Spanish style and you will see this in our reviews. One guest was moved to tears when staying with us for a 30th wedding anniversary because she felt it was even better than the photos.
No 9 was very popular and so we started the search for a second townhouse. We found No 17 with the help of local estate agent Sergio Fernandez. No 17 was literally a shell with breeze block walls, no services and it looked a little unloved. However we soon began to see its potential and we were excited by the challenge ahead. We worked with local builder Victor Roman and we are immensely proud of the finished product. No 17 with its rooftop pool and energetic vibe really is just beautiful.
No 8, on the stunning Plazoleta square is a larger property, a three bedroom townhouse with a rooftop pool and a high spec luxury finish. All rooms are ensuite. Work started with local builders Construcciones Schmid in 2020 and it will be ready to accept guests from Spring 2021.
All the townhouses are located within a few steps of the Main Square, Plaza Almijara, making them the ideal base to explore Andalucia and the surrounding areas.
They offer the perfect combination, self catering holiday rentals with everything you find in villas with pools but with Competa right outside your door. No need for taxis or designated drivers, everything is just a few steps away.
We also use our wealth of knowledge of local providers to offer you add-ons to your holiday. Whether you want to indulge in yoga, massages, beauty treatments or activities such as guided tours, jeep safaris, kayaking or canyoning then we can pair you with an expert and make your escape perfect!
