The walks will be guided by experienced guides. Each day you will have a choice between an easy walk of 2,5 to 4 hours or a moderate walk of 4,5 to 6,5 hours.

Cómpeta is part of the new 'GR 249 Gran Senda de Malaga' long distance walking route.
To celebrate this project we have included 2 stages of this walk in this years Festival. Only the walks on the 2nd and 3rd day will go, for a smaller part, through the area affected by the forest fire of last 29 June.


A huge thank you! Your generosity and support is unwaivering as we raised an amazing 2824€ to be shared equally between cudeca and axarquia animal rescue.

In its second year and back by popular demand, 'Cómpeta Rocks On' and the Drums of Africa welcomed 179 audience members and performers on a steamy August 8th night with a colourful and vibrant performance setting the bench mark for those who were to follow and we were not disappointed. 14 year old ELLA wowed with her very mature, delightfully melodic and entertaining performance, please come back and visit us again soon ELLA!


´m a bad driver in August, I admit, so perhaps I´m lucky to still be here in September. The problem with August is that we go away on holiday then; one eye is on the road and one is roaming through everyone's gardens. After all, it´s new turf and you have to see what´s growing there. This year we went to the beautiful Cantabrian coastline where the weather can be – and was – very changeable, often with strong salt-laden winds. Plantings were fairly predictable and there were four absolute stalwarts of coastal gardens – Pittosporum, Hortensia, Tamariscus and Artemisia. The first three fairly shout at you but Artemisia is a little more sneaky; not always instantly seen but almost always there.


Twenty three years ago, MacMillan Cancer Support, UK held their very first World's Biggest Coffee Morning to assist their much needed fund raising activities. 2,600 people registered for the first coffee morning and in 2013; 154,000 events took place raising a record of over £20 million. MacMillan actively encourage corporate companies, clubs, groups, societies and schools to hold a coffee morning and it is something I participated in, during my corporate working life.

For the last two years
