What a place to stay, its brilliant. This is the best villa/home we have stayed in over the years. We booked last year and were so disappointed with the whole Covid-19 situation, as we didn't think we'd make it. We didn't make the final decision to travel until two days before we were due to leave the UK. Nicki was so understanding and she agreed not to take the final payment until the day we decided we were definitely going. For me that is breath taking service, especially when she must have been under pressures of her own.
The home is great. As soon as we walked in the door we knew we would love this place and that we would come back. My wife is very house proud and travels with cleaning wipes in the suitcase. No one can relax or unpack until she has given the place a once over. At no9 there is no need, its spotless.
There is plenty of space throughout the house and the kitchen is well stocked of equipment if you want to make something to eat. We only made breakfasts and a few afternoon snacks. The rest of the time we spent eating out.
We were worried how open Competa would be in the covid climate. There was no need to worry. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets. We ate out every night, except one, when we had a take out fish and chips from Grandads chippie.
The setting is spectacular and matches the house. Competa and the surrounding area is beautiful. We loved coming home at night after a meal and few drinks and sitting on the roof. We had a few more drinks and looked up at the stars, listening to the faint chatter of atmosphere from the restaurants in the square. It was bliss. I wish I was back there now.
Ohh and a final mention to the beds and the showers. They are fab.
We are yet to stay in this beautiful townhouse and due to COVID-19, we will not be able to stay there this May as originally planned. The reason for my review is that whilst things are challenging for all of us right now, Nicki and Paul couldn't have been more supportive and helpful in allowing us to move our planned holiday to an alternative date. Their service was second to none. I'm really looking forward to seeing Competa in a years time and I wish Nicki and Paul every success with maintaining their wonderful business during these challenging times.
No 9 is in a great spot to enjoy village life, with shops and restaurants on the door step. The house has been very tastefully renovated and is well equipped. The great showers (best we've experienced in Spain!) and sunny roof terrace stand out particularly.
Number 9 Cómpeta was beautiful. Each room, and level was so comfortable and the villa had everything we could need on a weekend away.
We came to Cómpeta for a triathlon training weekend, and it was a great place for us to train. Riding the mountains was beautiful yet tough, the runs were perfect and the pool nearby made everything easy.
I would recommend staying at number 9 Cómpeta if you want a weekend away with everything you need at your doorstep! The host was great and so helpful, she was available by phone and replied to all questions. When we arrived, there was a bowl of fruit, wine which was a nice welcome! Would definitely recommend staying here and I look forward to going back!
Staying at No 9 really made our short winter break in Competa. The location overlooking the main square is perfect, with numerous bars and restaurants close at hand, and a good bakery just round the corner. The house itself was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. In summer it would be lovely to relax in the small pool, but even in Feburary we sat in warm sunshine on the roof trerrace, and the view from here is superb. I found the bedroom very quiet and comfortable - so much so that I was actually concerned about sleeping in, especially after a day out walking. I started leaving the window ajar, so we would hear the clock chime at 8:00am! (It dosen't chime through the night)
Competa itself is a lovely and very friendly place to relax in, and the surrounding area offers stunning views and some excellent walking.
Nicky and Paul have put a welcome pack together which will be emailled to you. It is full of useful infomation about the area. I followed their recommendation to use
Helle Hollis in Malaga for car hire (including a discount code) and would do so again. Easy booking online, and a friendly efficient service.
I would love to return to Competa and would definately stay at No 9 again!
