Please look at my Cómpeta Walking Festival BLOG for more information of the walks and when it is taking place in September.
The Axarquía region is a great place to get out and do some walking, and we are right in the centre of it! Villa Andalucía is on the edge of the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park, within a few minutes you can be walking in the natural Park.
Spring and autumn time is a great time for walking in competa when the weather is that bit cooler.
Whether you’re aiming for a meandering stroll or a more challenging hike, the sierras have everything to fulfil your needs, great walks with fantastic views.
Imagine, having a loving day walking and being able to come back to the crystal-clear pool for a relaxing swim or just floating about on the inflatable, followed by a nice G&T or a glass of wine and watching the sun go down!
If you are an inexperienced walker and prefer to have a guide, we can arrange this for you. We have an experienced qualified local guide who has lived in Competa for 20 years and fluent in Spanish, English and French.
