Your beautiful holiday home located in Las Cuevas close to the white-washed villages of both Riogordo and Comares an easy 45 minute drive from Malaga Airport. The rural location has easy access (no muddy or rocky tracks to damage your hire car), whilst still maintaining the cosy rural country feel that Andalucia has to offer - relaxation in the sunshine with both a pool and a covered hot tub, for the sole use of our guests.

Both casitas are flexible, comfy and well equipped offering 'Excellent Value' in stunning surroundings.

They are situated in the grounds of the owner's cortijo. Both being situated lower than the cortijo offering complete seclusion from the cortijo and each other. The covered hot tub is located between the two casitas and the pool area is situated away from both the cortijo and the casitas, therefore offering peace and quiet for all.

Both have their own private terraces (covered and open) and BBQ areas, as well as the shared spaces such as the pool, covered hot tub and communal gardens. The properties are south facing for optimum sunshine - there are many trees in the various gardens if a little extra shade is required.

For your convenience, there is a small almacen (store) which houses a washing machine, tumble dryer, sink, hanging area for drying and a large 'honesty' fridge freezer which we have stocked with items you may just run out of.

A FREE bountiful 'Welcome Pack' is always provided. Depending on the season, fresh fruit and vegetables from our gardens are included. If you are arriving late we are happy to get a little extra shopping in for you if needed.

The pool, hot tub and gardens are maintained every day of your holiday, usually while you sleep so as not to inconvenience you. We make every effort to ensure your privacy, whilst always being available if needed.

A great base for exploring the historic jewels and natural splendors of Andalucia including the beautiful natural parks, glorious beaches of the Mediterranean plus wonderful cities of Malaga and Seville.

Surrounded by olive groves and rural views of mountains and undulating hills. It's a rural and idyllic area suitable for walkers, bird watchers, cyclists and people who just want to relax alike.

Try one of the many bars and restaurants in the local villages to sample local wines and delicacies, the nearest being Ortega (1.5km) which is renowned for its roast lamb.

We are located in the parish of Comares, however the village of Riogordo is a little closer and easier to get to, both villages have lots to offer, Riogordo with its many bars and restaurants plus good shops and Comares too having bars and restaurants, also has the most stunning views to offer and is a great walking area.

About Terence Slater

Who are we ??:

Myself and my wife (Sue) having moved to Spain in 2007 purchased 'Finca Comares' in early 2011 with the aim to offer 'Great Value' holidays the like of which we ourselves have enjoyed in this area for many a year.

Although we'd lived here for four years we had to wait to find our ideal spot. The main house and casita Jasmin were renovated partially by the previous owners who did some amazing work and partly ourselves, we hope to have added to the rustic, but comfortable feel. We have subsequently spent the last two years refurbishing the property to a very high standard indeed the stable, castita Oliva, is a complete rebuild from top to bottom only the original stone walls remain. Having said that, all the refurbishments have been made using traditional Spanish methods and all the properties have kept their original features.

Our children go to a local schools and actively take part in all there is to offer in the vicinity, we also have a dog, two cats and numerous feline visitors to keep us company..

We feel we can offer you local and unbiased information about the area...and are happy to share our local knowledge with our guests. Share the tranquility and culture of Axaquira... in land Costa del Sol. Our goal was to help both couples and families alike to enjoy the beautiful surroundings that this area has to offer.

We are happy to offer a taxi service and baby sitting facilities if so desired, if there is anything we can do to help you have a great holiday all you have to do is ask.

Terence Slater purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Terence Slater chose Comares

Finca Comares offers a central and rural location to visit many areas of interest such as Malaga, Granada and Seville, all within easy reach by car. Torre del Mar and Malaga offer the usual beaches with Chirangitos that serve wonderful fish dishes along with other delicacies you're sure to enjoy. El Torcal a mini grand cannon which is a stunning mountain attraction with wildlife and views to take your breath, that we can personally recommend. Natural Parks to enjoy BBQ's (Oct to May only) and nature at its best. There are local restaurants which serve coffees, beers, wines and spirts most of the day. Best of all the casita can be your retreat for an evening watching the sun set with a glass of wine, a cool beer or even a nice cup of tea....

What makes this cottage unique

Axarquia:

This area is very beautiful, rolling hills and mountains that dip down to the azure coloured sea. Little white-washed cottages with drying beds for the moscatel grapes dot the countryside. The hillsides are covered with vines, almonds, olives, avocados and mangoes. Spring brings multitudes of wild flowers to Andalucia and wildlife from eagles to chameleons is varied and colourful.

Here you have the advantage of being in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by beautiful mountains, yet only 35 minutes from the beach, shops and the night-life on the Costa del Sol.

Riogordo and Benamagosa :

Offers all the local amenities of banks, shops, medical centre, pharmacy, tobacconist, post office and places to eat - tapa, raciones or 'menu del dia'. Market day is on Wednesday morning where you can see local produce and maybe grab a bargain.

Comares:

Comares village has a doctor’s surgery, a chemist, a tobacconist, a post office and a very good all in one shop selling everything you may need.. Market day is on Saturday. Several bars/cafes offer very good ‘menu del dia’. The very narrow streets are intriguing, as you can follow the ceramic footprints for a tour round the historic fortified village that dates back to the 3rd century BC. Don’t be surprised to see a donkey watching you from a doorway! The best views are frequently enjoyed by the dead, so take the opportunity and go up to the cemetery and take in the panoramic sights.

Malaga:

Malaga city's old quarter is very beautiful and has fantastic restaurants and tapas bars. Malaga’s Santa Semana Easter festival is breathtaking and the ten day August Festival is world renowned.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Très jolie maison située dans le calme de la campagne andalouse, décoration soignée avec son espace extérieur privé très bien entretenu. Cadeau de bienvenue très agréable : fruits, lait, beurre, confiture, pain, eau et bière fraîche au frigo. Très bon accueil de Richard et son fidèle toutou qui au cours de cette semaine ont toujours su être disponibles pour nous.

Proche de la mer, et emplacement idéal pour qui veut comme nous visiter les grandes villes andalouses, Séville, Cordoue, Grenade sans oublier les fabuleux paysages des différentes sierras alentours et Ronda.

Le soir quoi de mieux qu'un passage dans le jacuzzi pour passer une excellente nuit.

Encore merci Richard pour cet excellent accueil.

Welcoming and Cosy

  • 5 of 5
Genuine rural location in a tiny hamlet with olive groves and a goat farm down the hill. The grounds and accommodation are really as stunning, clean and tidy as in the pictures. A great deal of thought and effort has gone into the property for the guests to enjoy their stay. The kitchen is equipped for proper cooking. Rich and his friendliest of dogs were always available. There is super fast Wi.Fi to plan excursions. Saying that, we spent a whole day by the pool (unheard of for us) I blame the comfortable sun loungers!

A lovely little Casita

  • 5 of 5
A lot of thought has gone into creating this holiday hideaway in the hills. It was spotlessly clean, well-equipped and with a really comfy king size bed! The garden is designed to offer privacy and the hot tub has the perfect view of the hilltop village of Comares. There's a built in BBQ and plenty of space for al fresco eating. The pool (shared with just one other Casita) is perfectly positioned to make the most of gentle afternoon breezes. Rich was really helpful, but did not intrude on our privacy. It is a short drive to Riodordo for supplies and the surrounding area has lots to discover.

MAX RELAX

  • 4 of 5
Finca Comares Oliva is all that Rich and Susan promise: it is located in a very quit and peaceful area, all facilities you need for a perfect holiday are foreseen. The pool is very refreshing in summer.
The finca is clean and well kept; there are more than enough relaxing beds on the terras.
The owners are constantly availiable if there are questions; the dog welcomed us every time we arrived from a trip;
The surroundings are magnificent; trips to Nerja, Frigiliana, Antequera, Ronda, Comares, El Torcal, El Chorro,... We will never forget them.
Also the food is great and cheap. We enjoyed the Spanish kitchen several times.
Again thank you to Rich and Susan for your kind caring.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two amazing weeks relaxing at this picturesque place. The views are simply stunning; from where we were staying we could see mountains, hill top villages and beautiful farmland. The finca is surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees.

We stayed at Olivia, which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The finca was very well equipped and there really was everything we needed. It was lovely to find complimentary food and drink, including water, wine and beer in the fridge on arrival.

Our hosts Rich and Sue are lovely people and perfect hosts. They made us feel very welcomed and as others have already said, they make a real effort to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Rich and Sue have put a lot effort into making the fincas a lovely place to spend time and in our view they have got it just right.

We loved spending time around our finca, which was very private. We spent many days around the swimming pool, in the evenings we used the hot tub where we would sit and look out at the stunning views (so relaxing).

We would highly recommend staying at this location. We had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays we have ever had.

Many thanks and best wishes to Rich and Sue.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very kind words, i will always remember your first statement... "The pictures don't do it justice" Now that is a double edged sword, how do i convey that to potential clients, i thought to myself. We do honestly try to allow our guests the peace and tranquility that the area has to offer, but like our guests, we too enjoy the local bar and one evening we were joined by Michael and Aneta, it must have been good as i can't quite remember the walk, fortunately we had 'Sunny' to guide us.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in Casita Olivia for two weeks In February 2014. Had a lovely 40 minute drive up through the countryside from the airport, beautiful part of the country, along the windy road edged with olive and almond trees and outlined with white washed houses scattered around. The casitas are placed with spectacular views across the mountains which you look out on to first thing in the morning, or when sitting out on the patio having a meal. The casita is very comfortable, with everything that you need to cook a meal in. The wood burner gave some welcomed heat during the evenings in February and soon warmed everything up very quickly. Richard always made sure there was plenty of wood for the fire, and that we never went without anything. The bed was just like being at home; warm and comfy with a lovely hot shower conveniently place. Lovely big settee to lounge on with Wi-Fi when you needed it. Outside we had plenty of garden furniture to lounge on with BBQ for our own personal use. There is a washing machine and drier for use should you need it. We never felt looked on and were left to our own when we wanted to but equally if we needed anything or information, Richard was only to willing and helpful. The hot tub on a starry evening was a real treat, and something to be tried, it was a relaxing experience and only added to an already happy holiday. There are plenty of nearby attractions to visit, and the coast is only a short, quiet drive away. There is a shop in the next village of RioGordo which stocks a huge variety of stock, with many British items if you need. Least of all we always enjoyed our welcome from Sunny, Richard and Sue’s dog, she always had a welcome wag of her tail for us and likes to say hello. We had a fabulous holiday, went home very relaxed and happy after enjoying a wonderful experience. Thank you very much, we hope you will continue to be happy and busy and enjoy your life in Spain.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I enjoyed our little chats when we passed each other whilst loading the wood store or in the parking area. We look forward to hearing about your Spanish adventure in the future. All the best Rich and Sue
