Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Casa Meyer, has been purposely designed for the increasing demand of the growth of the rural rental market in Andalucia.
The location is perfect for exploring this lovely area of Spain and the Villa is Spanish influenced, has a small concrete drive through to the secure parking and terrace areas of the villa.
The pool is located to capture sun and views and the gated and walled surround allow privacy and security for families, though life in Comares is very tranquil and safe.
The comfy villa adheres itself to modern living with air conditioning in many of the rooms, a well equipped kitchen and airy bedrooms.
Guests that require constant internet can be catered for and English and Spanish television are provided.
The grounds are terraced and flat allowing children to run and play and parents to relax.
It is equidistant to Comares & Los Ventorros so cars can be left at the villa and drinks and meals enjoyed in the evening.
Modern, Safe, Comfy, Well Equipped ' What more do you need '
Tranquil, Peaceful and Stunning are all descriptions which relate to this amazing area of Andalucia, close enough to add city trips such as Malaga and Granada to your agenda,the Alhambra Palace is a must and Casa Meyer is realistically positioned to visit the famous caves of Nerja.
Within an hour there are stunning villages and amazing beaches, within 2 you can be nearly in Gibraltar or have stopped and shopped in Marbella or seen the riches of Puerto Banus .
This amazing area of the Mountains of Malaga is great to explore and wonderful to spend your holiday in.
The local land still has olives and almonds dripping of the trees and this amazing beautifully restored Farmhouse with private pool blends into the surroundings perfectly.
Walking through the cobbled streets of the village is a delight. Not only is there a timeless, peaceful atmosphere throughout, but you can take a sub-conscious history lesson as you walk. The coloured ceramic tiles which decorate the village tell the story of Comares' place in Spanish history since the 3rd century BC. The remaining ruins of the huge Moors fortress of Comares tells a little of the story itself, but there is little remaining.
There are a handful of fantastic bars in Comares, a couple of exceptional restaurants and many doorstep stalls selling local wine, raisins, almonds, olives, honey and cheese. The local produce is mouth watering, and the little doorstep shops make cooking in a self catering Comares villa or apartment an absolute delight. During the St Hilairo de Poitiers festival from the 25th – 27th August each year, Comares springs into life, transforming form a sleepy, sun-drenched village to become a haven of activity, music, dance and food.
Comares lies just outside the Malaga Mountains Nature Park, a wonderful area of mountains, river valleys and thick forests awash with wildlife. The park is a fantastic place to walk and climb, surrounded by some of the finest views to be found across Andalucia, and in amongst the indigenous wildlife of the region.

The Andalucia region
The region is bordered to the north by the rocky Alfanarte Mountain range, and to the south by the sea at Torre del Mar - a short 25 min drive through the olive and almond groves.
This area is also rich in fruit such as mango, avocado, orange and lemon groves along the route to the sea. Many of the olive trees are over 1000 years old and date back to the Roman period.
The coast offers a choice of towns from Malaga in the east to Nerja in the west, the beaches are long and largely empty and the towns have all the nightlife and shopping you could want.
Comares sits over 700 meters above sea level and has been named in Arabic as “Hins Comrix” which means “Castle on High”.
It is also a town steeped in history and very rich in culture.
It was home to a Muslim rebel leader named Omar ben Hafsum in 9th century AD. And this history of Muslim occupation is still evident in the village today with its inscribed stonework, watch towers, whitewashed houses and narrow cobblestone streets.
A Parish church which was built way back in the 16th century is certainly worth a look. There are also several bars, supermarkets, plazas, a post office and a bank to cater to locals and the few tourists who are lucky enough to have found this great haven.
