Idyllic Cómpeta, the  ‘pearl of Axarquia’, a fine example of a Spanish whitewashed village.  It’s labyrinth of steep streets, cobbled alleyways and traditional houses nestled on the hillside. The picturesque Andalusian village is cloaked by mountains and with incredible views down towards the med.

Each year on the 15th of August the village hosts a fun fiesta called  Noche del vino (Night of the wine) packed full of colour, culture and traditions. Spain knows how to do a good fiesta.  It was a great opportunity for our little tribe to experience flamenco, dancing, art, grapes crushed under foot and free local wine(sweet, brown wine from the muscatel grape) and traditional food (migas)!
