Road cycling in Andalucia

Come road cycling in Andalucia on beautiful and above all quiet roads in the varied mountainous landscape along the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. Literally around the corner from the cozy and sunny square of the white mountain village of Cómpeta, at 640 m altitude with cozy terraces, you will find our comfortable La Granada Residence studio apartments.

Relaxed road cycling in the hills of the green Axarquía region or sporty cycling in the Southern Pyrenees. The area is known for the Vuelta and the Ruta del Sol.

We have been organizing road cycling holidays in Andalucia since 1994 and we keep in touch to advise you on routes or just to catch up on a sunny terrace with a glass of wine.

As one guest wrote in our guestbook: Cómpeta is a good starting point for beautiful bike rides of 45 to 130 km in the mountainous surroundings.

You can choose to go to the coast or to the mountains. A guarantee of varied rides on mostly traffic-free roads.

Of course, you can safely store your bike in one of our apartments.


Why not alternate road cycling with a day of hiking in the mountains near the town?

GCN cyclists are also very fond of Andalusia for cycling. This is clear from the video below.

What a guest wrote

A perfect host

Dear Albert,

Thanks again for facilitating our cycling holiday and taking care of us during our week in Cómpeta! You were the perfect host for us, giving us tips and assistance for bike routes, (non-bike) trips, food and drink, transportation, etc. The apartments at La Granada Residence were very cosy with international TV and spotless.

Cómpeta is a good base for beautiful bike rides from 45 to 130 km in the mountainous area. In short, a stay that I can recommend to all tourists, especially cyclists.

Price/quality fantastic for a top-rated cycling vacation package!
