About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Finca. Furnished to high standard with Moroccan touches

Nestled on the mountainside, Finca Agujas offers peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting, 10 mins drive from the picture-perfect village of Competa with its many restaurants and shops.

It's 30 minutes to the nearest beach at Torrox Costa and 40 mins to beautiful Nerja. Malaga airport is just over 1-hour away, while the Alhambra Palace can be done in a day. For those who prefer challenging walks, the national park is right on the doorstep.

Our 3 bedroom (two twins, one double), 2 bathroom cottage has been newly furnished to a high standard, providing free Wifi, washing machine, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, multi-channel UK TV and gas barbecue. There's even an Xbox, if, in the unlikely event, the kids are bored! All the bedrooms have air-conditioning/heating. Outside there's plenty of shaded space for cooking, eating and relaxing as well as an enclosed, good-sized swimming pool. Visitors are also very welcome to pick the home-grown oranges, lemons and almonds overhanging the terraces.

The property is managed and serviced locally by an English couple who live nearby.

About Robert & Angela Prior-Wandesforde

Angela and I live in Sevenoaks, England with our two teenage boys. Although it's a nice part of the world it's not quite Southern Spain in terms of proximity to the sea, spectacular mountain views or daily hours of sunshine! If, like us, you need these kind of attractions every now again you are more than welcome to come and enjoy them at our Finca.

Robert & Angela Prior-Wandesforde purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Robert & Angela Prior-Wandesforde chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Having returned from sunny Singapore where we lived, worked and schooled for 8 years the first winter back in the UK proved somewhat of a challenge! This largely explained our decision to buy in Southern Spain. We wanted a property with character and breathtaking views where we could rest, relax and explore a new part of the world for us. After an extensive search we were lucky enough to find Finca Agujas. Unfortunately, with our children still in school, we can only spend limited time at the cottage over the next few years. We are, however, delighted to offer it to discerning visitors for their private use and enjoyment.

What makes this cottage unique

We have added several tasteful Moroccan touches to the property which we hope you will like. Many UK channels are available on the HD TV, while those so inclined are very welcome to use the Xbox 360. There are a lot of different games to choose from and three controllers. A washing machine is available for your convenience as well as a microwave and even a Nespresso coffee machine. Outside, guests can make use of the large gas barbecue.

Excellent property, beautifully appointed with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. We have just returned from a weeks holiday. The Finca is situated overlooking stunning views. It is in a private and peaceful location, yet not far to the local town and its amenities.

The kitchen has everything you could wish for and we tended to cook at the Finca and eat al fresco most nights.

Overall quality family time in a wonderful setting and a Finca whose owners have considered the needs of their guests. Thank you!!

A lovely, comfortable house in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Finca Agujas is as pretty as it looks in the website photos - we weren't disappointed. Comfortable and relaxing, set on a hillside dotted with other similar houses but only a little way outside Competa, which is a very attractive town with decent shops and several restaurants. Great walks in the nearby national park. Robert was extremely helpful, providing lots of useful information about the house and area and responding quickly to queries. Highly recommended.

A wonderful well equipped property in a fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely break. The Finca is very comfortable and in a fairly rural location which meant it was quiet and relaxing.

Well equipped and what a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This lovely finca is about 3 miles from The beautiful mountain village of Competition. Its location, together with all the modern conveniences and equipment you need makes it a perfect, relaxing place for a quiet winding down holiday. Lovely pool and outside eating areas. My wife and I had a great week. Taxi cost only 10 euros to competa. Loads of good restaurants. I would recommend this property 10/10.

A beautiful Spanish finca. Gorgeous setting. Scenic. Lovely pool and villa. Very comfy beds and well equipped with everything you could need. Competa is a gorgeous Spanish village with lots of lovely restaurants. Would recommend for a peaceful and relaxing break.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Finca Agujas is the best house we've ever rented (and we've tried a lot!). Beautifully restored, fantastic (and large) swimming pool, airy and light (both indoors and out), very peaceful location and great views over the valley. We (2 adults + 2 children) were there for two weeks during the summer and it was no less than the best vacation we ever had (actually already re-booked for next summer :) So we give Finca Agujas the best recommendations!

Best,

Mette + Family from Denmark
