About this listing
'Los dos Algarrobos' is an authentic Andalusian country house. It's located close by the white village of Competa and only 20 minutes by car from the sea/beach.
In earlier times the house used to be a so called 'siesta house' of a farmer and during the years it has been extended and renovated. The house has a spacious living, a dining room and a very spacious kitchen in traditional Andalusian style, with a dish washer, an espresso machine, a stove, microwave etc.
In the east 'wing' you'll find 2 bed rooms with a shared bathroom and at the other side of the house there is the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom. In total there are beds fro 8 people (2 x double beds and a bedroom with 2 bunk beds) and eventually there is a sofa bed in the living room. The house is decorated in a Moorish-Andalusian style, with an eye for detail.
The house is located against a hill and has a fabulous Mediterranean sloping garden, with lots of succulents, olives, mimosa, pine trees, carobs, figs etc. The house lies in a sheltered position. There are more houses around, so it is not isolated, but there is a lot of privacy, nobody is overlooking the terrace. In front of the house there is a porch with lounge bed and under the carob trees you can sit at a big wooden table, made of an antique Andalusian door. Next to the house -and the master bed room also gives direct access- is the green-tiled pool of 4x10 meter. Here you can also find the outdoor kicthen/bbq. Behind the pool you can climb over the stairs in the rocks up to the forest.
From the plot of the house you have a great view through the valley to the sea (as the bird flies less than 10 km.but over the mountain road about 15 km).
In the house there is a climate system with airco, ventilation and heating, there are two gas heaters and there is the wood stove. There is free wifi. Guests do get a free self written very extended guide about the surrounding, restaurant tips, the best -hidden- beaches, tips for nice outings etc
