About this location

The Andalucia region

The views speak for themselves and no photographs can really capture how majestic and awe inspiring they really are and you will never get bored of seeing how the shadows and light condition opens up a glimpse of something you missed the first time from a eagle to a another white washed house on the horizon.

The 8 x 4 m Roman stepped pool captures the sun and helps you relax and frame the views and as it is salt water filled, then smell and taste of chlorine is not an issue.

Once you have convinced yourself that you ought to leave the pool, then a lovely stone built BBQ is available for you to use and then when you wish to dine al-fresco you can sit in the shade on the veranda or if the sun is dropping and a little more shade is required then at the push of a button the awning will provide more.

Plenty of outside space is provided allowing for parking, terraces and also a sweet garden, there is also a gated entrance so a lovely environment for children to be able to play in.

Casa la Trocha has 2 beautiful bedrooms, the master with an en-suite with a bath.

The second bedroom has sleeping via twin beds, there is plenty of hanging space in both bedrooms.

The main bathroom has a quality Spanish style shower, with lovely tiles.

A great kitchen which is well equipped with lovely views and has a great feel and you can look out onto the pool and views whilst cooking a paella.A separate oven or hob are for your disposal and the fridge freezer is a good size, above all this kitchen is very well equipped with utensils which the chefs amongst you will love.Being created open plan the area of cooking and conversation works well with those wishing to relax in the dining room and lounge area not being isolated from the cooks in the family.

There is Spanish TV with a small element of English speaking channels, but a DVD and English films can provide the entertainment later in the night once you have finished swimming in the night air.

A cooling breeze is a hallmark of Comares and with the added bonus of fans and nets on all the windows you will sleep well even in the peak summer months.

Also unlimited WiFi provided at a small fee of only £10 extra per week.

In winter the views stay stunning and the Villa becomes cosy with a lovely log burning fire.

The owners brother whose own place is just down the track is a local taxi driver so he can provide a great value service and allow you to be tempted with an extra glass of vino with the meal and not worry about driving, the beauty is that you don't need to try and explain where you live, I think he can find his sisters villa !

Not only will you fall in love with this fantastic villa but also the nearby village of Comares, which as everyone says, once discovered never forgotten, it will get under your skin and stay in your memories forever with it's Moorish influenced styling and the fact that it has not been spoilt by the influx of tourism.


The picturesque white town of Comares is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful villages in the Andalucian province.

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.

Things to do:

Walking Routes

Limestone rocks, ravines, cliffs and boulders are strewn across the carefully conserved countryside of Comares. It is home to a wide variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna which makes this quaint town ideal for leisurely walks or more challenging treks.

Take your pick with various walking routes around the village offered by Vine Ridge. Each of these scenic walks has various levels of difficulty to cater to your every need and preference.

~Take the Ruta de Fuente Gorda, a 2.5 km route that circles the town on Comares and ends in the town's main square.

~The Ruta el Lavadero is a 4 km walking trail that weaves the Southern slopes of Comares to theHamlet of Alqueria.

~The Ruta de la Mesa is a relaxing 10 km walk which leads you to Los Ventorros, a small village that has preserved the remnants of a Medieval Moorish settlement.

~Ruta de le Teja is an adventurous 12 km walk along North Comares which takes you down to beautiful riverbeds with spectacular mountain views along the way.

~Ruta de la Buena Vista is a challenging 22 km and 10 hour walking trail. You will be led along Comares' local rivers and mountain slopes whose scenic views are incomparable to any other vantage points along the town.

Horse riding

There are charming stables nearby to us, run by a good friend of ours, ideal for children, or adults who want to experience a lesson or go out for a trek in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Excellent value and a great treat to enhance your holiday. Please ask us for more details.

Bird watching

Should you wish to simply stay at Vine Ridge, you can take in the beauty of the existing wildlife as majestic birds fly and settle on the open terraces.

"Pool with 100 square mile view - astonishing position"

About an hour and half from the airport, but the final stretch very rural and remote. Shop at the big supermarket on the way. The house is on a tiny track - one or two cars per day pass - clinging to… More

Thank you for a lovely review , this really is a special and unspoilt part of Spain and this very special Casa does sit in a remarkable position with outrageous views over to the Granada province and down to the Mediterranean and the traditional Spanish villa has everything you will need for an amazing holiday experience.
