We understand that some of you will be traveling without a car. In this case finding us is pretty simple! If arriving from the airport please either take a taxi or you can take a bus to the central Malaga bus station and from there take a bus direct to Competa. The bus time table is here.
If you are checked in to the Chili Apartment then there is an inventory list in the kitchen drawer which we will check when you arrive and leave. Please let us know if anything is missing so we can replace it or if anything is broken during your stay.
Parking is provided on the road right outside the property.
When you leave, please ensure the following simple tasks are done:

- Let us know if there were any breakages or any issues.
We hope you had a wonderful holiday and wish you safe travels back home. We'd love to see you again next year!
Check-out time is strictly 11am. Should you require a later check-out we will do our best but you need to let us know beforehand. If we have guests arriving that day it will be almost impossible to offer a late check-out due to the cleaners needing to prepare for those guests.
You will find the house clean on arrival but please let us know if you are not satisfied. For stays of 1 week there is no cleaning service. After you depart our cleaners will perform that for the next guest. If you are here for two weeks there will be one clean, usually on the middle Saturday. They have a key and will access the house at some point during the day, but not before 10am. If you need a cleaning service more often, please let us know and we will arrange this. An extra payment will apply. On departure it would be helpful if you could leave the house (particularly kitchen contents & hob) clean and tidy when you leave. No need for you to perform a full clean!
Optional opportunity to add any specific inventory check you or your housekeeping will do on check out.
GETTING YOURSELF ORIENTED
OVERVIEW OF THE AREA
ChiliTri is a unique bed & breakfast and triathlon camp getaway in Competa Spain, we will give you an experience that feels like heaven on Earth!
Sitting on the hillside above the beautiful village of Competa, ChiliTri welcomes you with stunning Mediterranean and mountain views and the warmest welcome in the Axarquia.
Imagine the pure white village of Cómpeta, nestled high in the breath taking Andalucía mountains yet only 25 minutes from the beautiful beaches, and with views of the olive groves and the sounds of crickets and birdsong.
Imagine waking up, rising from your long deep relaxing sleep to the sounds of the birds chirping, opening your windows to welcome the clear azure blue sky and the soft sounds of the village life in the quietness of the morning, far away from your normal, hectic stressful life.
In the white Andalusian village of Cómpeta, with its Moorish influences, you can be transported back in time, you can see the farmers still harvest the almonds, olives, grapes, and raisins as their forefathers did before. This is a lively and welcoming town that has retained the old charm of Andalucia, where genuine hospitality towards its visitors can be felt.
There are spectacular walks into the mountainous national parks where Andalucia´s uniquely varied wildlife can be enjoyed. The numerous bars and restaurants in and around the village provide a variety of good food, tapas, and local wine.
For sporty types we offer swimming, cycling and running sessions plus fitness classes in our outdoor gym. These include spin cycling, HIIT, Body Pump, Step and Pilates/Yoga.
Local amenities such as a supermarket and local bars are just a 5 minute walk away. To sample authentic Spanish life wonder down to the town square just a 15 minute walk.
SUGGESTIONS IF YOU ARRIVE EARLY
Many guests will arrive before the designated check-in time. The good news is that there is plenty to do. We often suggest that guests visit the grocery store and do a small shop. The nearest shop is Coviran, Av. de Canillas, 33H. That will give you more time to relax once you've checked in! There are also a few good restaurants for lunch so why not relax and enjoy some of the local food! The closest restaurants are Bar David and Chico's both in Plaza del Carmen.
