The Andalucia region
Once Spain´s poorest region, Andalucia - and specifically the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Seville - is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, thanks to its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, spectacular mountain ranges, fabulous monuments and high-spirited people who live life to the full and are well known for their exuberance, warmth and hospitality.
Andalucia is also the home of flamenco and tapas, which can be best enjoyed at the region´s countless ferias and romerias.
But perhaps the most unique feature of this enchanting region are the remnants of its Moorish past. The Moors were a mixture of Berbers and Arabs who crossed into Spain from North Africa by the Straits of Gibraltar and occupied the peninsula - which they called al Andalus - for more than seven centuries, dating from 710 when they first landed in Tarifa. Within a mere four years they had virtually conquered the entire country, although they soon withdrew to the southern part of the peninsula, where they established, in the towns of Cordoba, Seville and Granada, one of the most sophisticated civilisations of the Middle Ages. Each of these Andalucian capitals boasts spectacular remains of their monuments, the most unforgettable of which is, undoubtedly, Granada's Alhambra palace.
Comares is the highest village in the beautiful area of the Axarquia. The area is steeped in history and the village of Comares has been described as the hidden gem of the Axarquia. Everywhere you look the views are breathtaking, over the countryside down to the sparkling blue sea of the Mediteranean. The village is 5 minutes, by car, from the villa and here you will find lovely restaurants, shops, a bakery, 2 banks, a chemist and a doctors. Comares has recently re-introduced the Donkey taxi and these can be hired from 1 hour up to half a day to include lunch or breakfast. Watch the sunrise over the sea and the Mountains, whilst trekking in the countryside.
From Comares it is easy to visit Granada, Seville, Ronda and Cordoba. The famous caves of Nerja are one hours drive and the glitzy areas of Marbella and Puerta Banus are within reach for a day trip. The weather in this part of Spain is good all year round. We enjoy beautiful summers, spring is a joy and during Autumn and Winter it never gets very cold. The villa has a fireplace as in the winter the evenings are obviously colder. The swimming pool can also be heated so you can swim all year round. From this villa you can walk to 2 excellent bars/restaurants in a few minutes.

"Villa with the astonishing view"
The driving route to the villa takes some time, but it's worth it if you like to spend your holiday away from tourist masses. Steep and winding road takes you to the middle of the mountains, and … More
Hello Janne and family
We are very happy that you enjoyed your vacation with us. As you say to be away from the tourist traps and to enjoy wonderful scenery is what this villa is all about. Also it has the bonus of 2 bars/restaurants in walking distance. I hope that you enjoyed time there also. Maybe we see you again in the future!

We went to the Villa with 9 young people (age between 20 and 30) with 2 cars.
At arrival we saw a very beautiful villa with a nice pool.
The rooms were very clean and there was a lot of information in the house to find nearby restaurants, bars, shops, etc...
We had one issue with the pool that wasn't filtering anymore. 1 call to the concierge and within an hour the problem was fixed. Very good service.
The people in the village were also superfriendly. When we arrived there was a local fiesta going in with only spanish locals. We were welcomed like we lived there ourselves.
I would surely recommend renting this villa and would consider renting it again in the future.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your vacation. Maybe we will see you all again!

"Highly recommended, spatious villa with great pool in Andalucian mountains."
Our party consisted of four adults and five young children (aged 3 to 8). Contact with the owner was very good. Always a quick and pleasant reply. Instructions how to get to the villa were clear. I'd recommend this place to anyone who likes a quiet, private villa in the Andalucian mountains away from the busy coast.
We enjoyed our stay very much! The house was clean, pleasantly spacious and well maintained. Great views, you can see as far as the coast. A fantastic pool, big terraces round the pool with sunroofs and a barbecue, some nice walks in the area. Very friendly people, everywhere. A couple of times we walked to the small pub down the road of Los Ventorros and had a meal there. They also sell ice-cream for the kids.
Comares is a lovely white village with great views of the area, without being very touristic. Do not expect to find many souvenir shops, bars or restaurants. There are three small bars, a larger restaurant, a few small shops and a small supermarket. Some people sell fruit and vegetables from their homes. Some bigger supermarkets are in Vélez-Málaga.
Most places to visit require a trip by car. The roads are in good condition, but can be windy, steep and narrow. It takes time to get somewhere.
Some other places worth seeing are Playa El Morche, Benamargosa, Antequera, the Nerja caves, Parque Natural El Torcal de Antequera and Parque Natural Montes de Málaga. Skip the lake of la Viñuela, there is almost no beach for children there and people warned us that the water was very dirty. You'd better drive to the coast, that takes about the same. Further away are the cities of Málaga, Ronda, Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, etc.
We had an issue with the gas for the water heater, we telephoned the caretaker who speaks English and he promptly had a refill delivered. The pool was well taken care of with inspections every other day.
