About Christina Hurford

We first visited the Axarquia region a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love with the tranquil beauty of the area. Our children are grown up and making lives for themselves so we decided it was our turn. We still live quite a hectic life in the UK but relish the time we spend at Casa Cefiro. In a few years time we hope to spend more time in Spain but in the meantime we are quite happy to rent it out to people looking for a lovely villa, in a picturesque area of Spain where the climate is fantastic.

Christina Hurford purchased this villa in 2015

Why Christina Hurford chose Cómpeta

Cefiro is a gem of a holiday home. We love listening to the birdsong and walking amongst the wild flowers in the surrounding hills. You will never tire of the glorious sunsets.

What makes this villa unique

For anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in a truly beautiful location this is the place for you. Casa Cefiro is easily accessible via a concrete track from the road. It is less than 5 minutes from the villages of Competa and Sayalonga where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The area is spectacular for hiking and there are many walking routes. Guided walks are available from Competa. Local horse riding stables offer treks with picnics and sunset rides. The area is also popular with cyclists and mountain bikes can be hired locally.

Outstanding views and beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

We don’t normally return to the same place twice but we’re really glad we did. We were blessed with lovely weather even though it was November. The villa really is impressive and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The views are mind blowing from high sierras down to the sea The sunsets are amazing. Once again Christina the owner was very helpful and their representatives were always on hand to answer any questions. Thank you

A beautiful villa with fantastic views and facilities

  • 5 of 5

Arrived early but this did not cause any problems, accommodation was superb with everything you might need during your stay provided. Drive up from road a little daunting but got easier with time. Scenery is breathtaking and sunsets superb. As we stayed for two weeks we would have appreciated a change of linen. A beautiful area where you can choose to do as much or as little as you want with super beaches and stunning mountain scenery both within easy reach. We found great restaurants in La Herradura and Algarrobo Costa.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The villa provided nice and relaxed experience for our stay. The house was on very good condition and well equipped, the rooms were clean and the yard had very good views over the mountains. The owners maintained good communication during the service process and there was sympathetic host who provided extensive and helpful introduction in the beginning of our stay.

Someday our like to come back again.

Magical setting, fabulous views, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

My first trip to Spain in a long time. A beautiful reintroduction. The house is perfect, it has everything you need and loads more. The views are stunning. The trip from the airport is 50 mins - v easy. Local village shopping and supermarket easy reach by car. Lovely walking area in deep country. Private. Even on 9th March the unheated pool was alluring enough for a quick splash.
