The space

ThinkersINN is a quiet and relaxing Hacienda. On the side of the house we have a Studio apartment for two persons. Bathroom with rain-forest shower, Kitchen and a covered glassed Patio as sitting area with lovely views over the Infinity Pool up to the Sierra and down to the sea.
On the roof there is a Moroccan rooftop lounge with two double swings, where in the evening, you can marvel watching the wonderful stars and moon with a glass of your favorite drink. The Apartment features underfloor heating in the winter months and air conditioning in the summer. Free WiFi, flat-screen satellite TV and a lovely private double-sided infinity pool. Bathrobes, towels, lounges for personal use to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible.
If you would like to be completely alone during your stay you have the option of booking Infinity Pool Hacienda ThinkersINN3.
If you have questions or would like tips and information of course we will do what we can to make your stay in beautiful Andalusia fabulous.
There is much more to do then just relax if you would like!
Change of Pace:
Visit the lost village of El Acebuchal with a four wheel drive vehicle or on foot through the Sierras and lunch with clay oven baked bread and dishes prepared with the soul of Andalusia. Olive oil tasting? The Fish Market of El Palo? Muscatel wine tasting? All in the vicinity.
A true flamenco experience with a nice meal.
The sports department is a completely different story: Caminito del Rey ( El Churro)hike, Mountain biking, Skiing, Race biking directly from the house. Motocross, ultra-lite flying and so much more. Nature at its best,
Should you come just to relax then of course this is also your option. The property is very quiet and peaceful and I have been told by painters that here they find the `Light`. In the center of Competa there are Art galleries with work from well know Danish, Dutch and English Artists.
In the city center there are nice/good restaurants that still have the feeling and taste of Spain AND are quite inexpensive. You also find interesting shops with many regional products, as the famous Competa wine, galleries, crafts and flea markets in the area on Sunday. The Andalusian gastronomy, artistic, folkloric and historical heritage of Andalusia. Should you enjoy shopping on a bigger scale there is also a large shopping Center near by with great deals to be had.
After all that, there still is Nerja ( Balcon de Europa), Malaga ( Harbor and lovely old town), Cordoba( Mezquita and Jewish Quarters), Granada ( El Alhambra), Ronda ( old city) all in a easy day trip. Torrel del Mar with it's beaches ( Beach lounge Bahia de Tanit). Free parking and Wifi of course.
We wish you a vacation with many lovely memories and fun stories to tell at home.

The Studio is on the side of the Hacienda and our guests have access to all common area's. One level up we have a roof top lounge with swings to enjoy the panoramic view with your favorite drink.

I offer Breakfast for a fee of 11.50,-Euro. Dinner of the house (three course menu) also Vegetarian meals by request and for a fee of 35,- Euros p.p. with wine, bier and soft drinks.

To us it's important that you feel at home with as much privacy as you want, but above all to have a vacation with many lovely stories to remember and talk about.

The accommodation: ThinkersInn was better than we had expected (and we had high expectations based on its AirBnB profile and reviews!). Some of the pictures are a bit out of date and they really don't do it justice. The view from the terrace across the mountains and out towards the Mediterranean sea is simply stunning. The infinity pool is larger than the pictures suggest and the sunbeds are incredibly comfortable. The hosts: Patricia and Peter provided a very warm welcome (including providing some drinks/food for the evening that we arrived and breakfast the following morning) and were a font of useful local knowledge. Their pets (3 dogs and 2 cats) were also very welcoming and a pleasure to have around. The location: Competa is a fabulous little town at the top of a mountain. It has a number of restaurants (trust Patricia's recommendations), many of which sensibly take advantage of the views. We discovered that it is almost 50% non-Spanish, which may put some people off, but rest assured that it isn't a "Brits abroad" resort, with most of the non-Spanish residents coming from northern Europe including Scandinavia. Competa is a great hub for outdoors activities and is also only a short driving distance from both Malaga and Granada, as well as many beaches. In summary: you will not be disappointed!

What can we say, this place is fantastic full stop. Down to the warmness of Patricia and peter, to the stunning villa, everything about staying at thinkers inn was spot on. From the drinks and chats in the evening to Patricia packing our bag for the beach so we had everything we needed, we had such a lovely time. I almost don't want to write a post as we have found a gem and want to keep it for ourselves but you only have to read the other reviews to see just how great this place is to stay. Thank you for your hospitality Patricia and peter and we can't wait to come back soon!

This place is paradise. As soon as we arrived we were planning our next visit for longer! Patricia and Peter are wonderful hosts, so friendly, cheerful and engaging and full of great tips and ideas of things to do and places to see. Peter goes for a hike with their beautiful impeccably-behaved dogs and you are always welcome to go along and hike with him in the stunning Sierra Nevada. Patricia is so thoughtful and accommodating and eager to ensure we got the most from our holiday. The accommodation itself is just perfect. The infinity pool, the views, all the lovely touches around the place. We went up to the rooftop terrace at night to watch the stars. Our double bedroom was beautifully finished with a large modern bathroom. We shared an outdoor fully-equipped kitchen with the other couple staying there. The kitchen even has a pizza oven and a BBQ. Competa village is close by, max 5 mins by car with lots of gift shops, bars and restaurants. We had the best, most relaxing holiday here and couldn't recommend it enough. Thanks Patricia and Peter!
