Welcome To Competa Property

The village of Competa is set at the foot of the Sierra Almijara, the snowcapped range of mountains between Malaga & Granada, that stretch down to the warm Mediterranean.

If you are looking to rent a Competa Property or even to buy property in Competa, there are many estate agents you can use offering a wide selection of properties including villas in Competa campo and townhouses in Competa village. Competa properties are characterised by their uniqueness, with no two properties being quite the same.

Competa village is very pretty and it has retained much of its original Moorish layout and has lots of interesting nooks and crannies, with a good balance of shops, bars and restaurants. There are many fine properties in Competa. The magnificent parish church of La Asunción, in the main square of Plaza Almijara, was built in the 16th century in Baroque-Mudejar stlye.

Competa, dating back to the Moors, and whose style is reflected in its winding streets and whitewashed houses, has many excellent restaurants and bars and the local inhabitants are content to sit in the central square, drink coffee and wish the stranger, Buenos dias!

Located in the heart of the Axarquia region of Andalucia, the village sits six hundred and fifty metres above sea level and from its flower bedecked streets and plazas there are spectacular views of sea, countryside and mountains. It is still an active and hard working agricultural town which makes an important contribution to the industry of the province with abundant crops of olives, almonds, grapes, raisins, figs and, above all, its famous wine, Vino de Cómpeta, which is renowned worldwide. In recent years a variety of tropical fruit has been successfully cultivated here. Mango, chirimoya and avocado plantations thrive on the sheltered slopes around Cómpeta. The Sierras lie to the north, snowcapped in winter, the wide blue expanse of the Mediterranean to the south. If an earthly paradise could exist the Axarquia would have to be its name.

This tranquil village is still, as of old, welcoming and assimilating those weary travellers who are seeking a less stressful lifestyle in one of the best climates in the Europe. The Malaga climate is characterised by mild winters and warm, dry summers. It weaves its magic gently and the “mañana” philosophy, anathema to those impatient ones who seek instant gratification, slowly soothes and relaxes the tension of other, more demanding lifestyles. With all year round beautiful weather you will want to visit again and again.

Cómpeta, “La Perla de La Axarquia,” this sun blessed town of dreams, the portal of a newly discovered well being, is here, now, awaiting you.
