Finca el Regalo
Finca el Regalo is an Andalusian country villa situated on 20.000 m2 ground providing extreme privacy with a wonderful view of the Mediterranean. Newly built with preservation of the Andalusian ambiance and heritage, it is tastefully decorated and furnished. The exterior of the property is no less impressive, terraced on various levels. The Mediterranean Garden contains over 90 matured olive, avocado, mango, and almond trees. A courtyard and ample terracing provide ideal spots for relaxing, barbecuing and dining. A pool (10 x 4.5 m) opens all the year but is not heated, faces south, and enjoys wonderful views of the surrounding terrain and the sea beyond. The pool is not suitable for young children (2.0-1.3m deep).
The main building consists of two separate units located on various levels with the smaller annex house situated near the swimming pool. We are renting the lover level of the main house and the annex house. The upper house stays closed during your stay.
In the period from June to the end of August, as well as during periods of time when none of us is on the property, we provide the fourth bedroom (bedroom in the tower) with a double bed and its own bathroom. During these periods of time, we can host up to eight people. This room will only be open if the number of people in the group authorize it and for an additional fee of 35 euro/day paid on our bank account or locally on arrival. You must inform us in advance if you intend to rent this extra facility
You drive only 12 min. to the nearest Costa del Sol village Competa where you can find all amenities. The half-hour drive to the coast takes you to the costa resorts of Torrox Costa, Nerja, Torre del Mar, offering fine beaches, water sports, markets, many bars, restaurants, and shops.
Please note that you will need a car for your stay at Finca el Regalo and you will be driving through the mountains of rural Andalusia. As a rule, we ask you to drive very carefully in this region. You must be aware that the roads in the rural mountainous areas of Andalusia do not meet the standards you are used to in your home country. They are paved most of the time, but are narrow, with no side protection and some are just unpaved mountain roads. For someone who has never been to this region, the first impression may be the concern for safety. The last 500 m of the road is quite a steep descent, which has just been paved and access to the house is no longer a problem. At the top of the road, there are only a few flat, unpaved stretches left, that can be passed by any ordinary car. Traveling this road as compensation, you will receive extreme privacy during your vacation. Due to the isolated location of the house, the range of mobile telephony is not optimal in this place. We recommend using the Internet (WhatsApp or Skype) to make calls. The internet speed is 15Mb / s download and 1.5 Mb / s upload.
From June to the end of August the property will be exclusively at your disposal and no other people will occupy the house during your stay. When you rent the house for another period you will have to accept the presence of the owners on the property. We guarantee maximum privacy during your stay. From September to the end of January we collect grapes and olives for making wine & olive oil. You are welcome to actively participate in this process. Please, give us always the exact number of people in your group. We are preparing the house only for a given number of guests.
