    Balcon de Cómpeta

    We stay at the friendly three-star Hotel Balcon de Competa in the dramatically set Competa.

    You will enjoy modern amenities inside, with free Wi-Fi, swimming pool (although this may not be in use year round), tennis court, restaurant, cafeteria and bar in the gardens.

    Continental breakfast and dinners are included and will be provided by the hotel. Lunches are not included, and can be bought using the banks, supermarkets and bakery that are within 400 yards of the hotel.

    Day 2 - 7: Our walks programme for the week takes us into valleys, with walks alongside streams, to hill tops offering panoramic views over the countryside side and to the mountains beyond as well as to Andalucian white-washed villages. This area has a strong Moorish influence as can be seen in the houses, cobbled streets and village fountains.

     

    There will be a free day during the week allowing you to explore more of the area on your own. You could choose to visit Nerja, on the coast, or maybe the bustling historic city of Málaga, which has over 30 museums, including the Picasso Museum and the George Pompidou Museum.

    Day 8: We return to Málaga Airport for the our flight to the UK.
