Overview

Comares Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Romantic & private setting for a couple looking to relax in the countryside

'La Paz' offers comfortable, rustic studio accommodation at a traditional Andalusian hillside farmhouse set in 5 acres of private land amidst almond and olive trees. This tranquil retreat enjoys far reaching mountain views from a South facing location; perfect for relaxing by the pool in one of the sunniest parts of Europe.

The farmhouse or 'finca' has been beautifully restored while retaining original rustic features including heavily beamed ceilings,tiled floors and wooden shuttered windows. These combine with modern comforts to provide a private setting in the countryside yet within a short 15 minute drive of the nearest village, Comares, and 45 min to the coast. Around the pool are several terraces (illuminated at night) sunny and shaded, where there is ample space for alfresco dining, enjoying a BBQ and unwinding on the loungers.

Comares, a beautiful hilltop village, offers good facilities incl. a village shop, pharmacy, bank with cash machine & several bar/restaurants.Nearby hamlet Los Ventorros has 2 excellent bar/restaurants serving meals and tasty tapas!

View our website at www.andalusianrentals.com

Local lifestyle: 'La Paz' is located in a very rural and much unchanged part of Southern Andalusia. Local life here is unhurried and relaxed. You can still find mules used for carrying sacks of olives or almonds through the hill farms to the villages. And when driving from 'La Paz' towards the coast the country road passes through acres of citrus fruit trees and avocados.

'La Paz' is a beautiful location for country walks. From the door of the Farmhouse Studio there are miles of tracks to walk - well away from cars and the bustle of everyday life. Spring and Autumn are perfect walking times. In summertime you may want only to relax by the pool with a cooling swim before lunch on the terrace.

Local facilities: Don´t be surprised to pass a herd of goats on your way up the hill to 'Comares' located at around 800 meters above sea level. This charming 'pueblo blanco', with it´s narrow winding streets, is the highest hilltop village in the Axarquia region with fantastic views all the way to the coast.

Comares and the hamlet of 'Los Ventorros' (10 min from La Paz) will provide you with a number of small village shops, bars, simple restaurants and banks (one with cash dispenser) to make your stay comfortable. Town facilities including a modern shopping center, cinemas, market and water park are located in Velez Malaga - some 40 min drive. Torre del Mar beach resort is 5 minutes further with many beach cafes, seafood restaurants and a wide selection of entertainment. Golf, Go karting and water sports are nearby.

Exploring Andalusia: 'La Paz' is the perfect rural base to explore the most popular sights of Andalusia: Granada and the Alhambra Palace are just 90 minutes drive - with the Sierra Nevada ski resort a short drive from Granada city center. Seville can be reached in 2 hours by car - well worth the effort! Cordoba and Ronda are beautiful and a similar distance. Nerja and the world famous caves is a one hour drive and Malaga, with it´s culture, including the Picasso museum, beaches and great shopping facilities is a one hour drive through the 'Montes de Malaga' national park.

As relaxing as it gets!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at La Paz in early August. We were looking for somewhere which would be peaceful and most importantly a holiday property with its own pool. Well, we got that and much more than we could ever wish for.

My first words to Maria and Carl when we arrived at La Paz was that the photos on this website don't do it justice. The surrounding countryside is spectacular, the pool is incredible and the accommodation is exactly what you need with a well-sized living quarters, excellent bathroom and cooking facilities and even a bit of UK TV thrown in for good measure!

Many people claim the drive to La Paz, along winding tracks, is a bit intimidating. But for us it was all part of the experience and we got used to it no time. Basically, for the levels of peace and quiet you're going to get, such drives are necessary.

We found it easy to explore the surrounding region, we made day-trips to Granada, Cordoba, Malaga and Nerja. But the little village of Los Ventorros was always good for a sneaky beer or two and the mountain top town of Comares is spectacular, has a decent supermarket and some nice places to eat.

Last but not least, a word or two about our hosts, Maria and Carl. They were absolutely perfect and made us feel completely welcome throughout our stay. Like many other guests have said, they never intrude on your privacy yet are always around to help you with any queries you may have. We really enjoyed meeting them, sharing stories, travel tips, cooking tips and the occasional drink!

And why not finish by mentioning La Paz's most famous residents, Mottie and Jeanie - two of the most fantastic, entertaining and kind-hearted dogs we've ever had the pleasure to meet. The lazy afternoons in or by the pool were always made more entertaining by the odd game of football with Mottie or by Jeanie's funny smiling face. I'm not the biggest lover of dogs, but it's impossible to not love this pair.

If it's a relaxing break, far away from the madness of city life you're after, then this is one of the best places you can go to.

Thanks Carl and Maria, for an unforgettable holiday!

Owner's Response: It was a delight to meet Steve & Claudia and swop some travel stories. With 2 weeks at La Paz they were able to chill out and enjoy the facilities and make use of the central Andalucian location to visit some of the key sights Southern Spain has to offer. After a day trip out to the city it was always pleasing to see them relaxing by the swimming pool with a cold drink! We look forward to seeing them back at La Paz in the future?! Carl.

Amazing, cant wait to return next year

  • 5 of 5
Where do we start, I guess the initial journey up the mountain, we collected our rental car and following Carls perfect directions hit the mountain at around midnight.............. pitch black and 4kms of mountain pass to tackle, daunting, but we made it.( To be fair once you have done it once its not a bad journey at all)
Carl and Maria kindly left the poolside lights on for us so we could see the studio, first impressions were WOW!!!!
Everything is exactly as described , and as a few others have said the pictures really dont do it justice, we loved it so much that after a few days of being here were rebooking for next year.
The studio has everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday, the pool area is fantastic and the welcome from Ginny and Tommy everytime we returned from days out put a smile on our faces.
Comares is a beautiful little town perched on top of its own peak, and the Coviran supermarket here had everything we needed for our 2 week stay.
There is so much to do in the area, wouldnt know where to start describing it all. We travelled to Nerja, Lake Vinuela, Caleta de Velez and Torre del Mar, but wanted to take advantage of the stunning views around the pool so tried to stay here as much as we could.
Special mention has to go to Table Mountain in Los Ventorros and their wonderful food, and great atmosphere and also to Chiringuito Estrella near the lighthouse on Torre Del Mar seafront where we ended up being regulars for their plate of sardines and bucket of beer for 7 euros!!!!!!!
Carl and Maria were perfect hosts, always on hand offering fantastic local knowledge and advice but never intrusive, cant wait to return next year.
Thanks once again Carl, Maria, Ginny and Tommy.

A little piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at La paz for two wonderful weeks in June 2013.
After a nightmare journey's start ( no fuel in hire car ) onnce we finished our detour for fuel we had a nice drive to La paz.
The last few kilometers are a bit hairy the first time you drive there, But are easy once you have done it , just take your time.
When we arrived at La paz we were delighted by the views and the lovely pool and bar area, which were well used in our two week stay.
The studio has everything that you need for your stay and was spotlessly clean we were very happy with everything.
The owners dog Ginny stole our hearts completely she is beautiful,As for the owners Carl and Maria ,they are two lovely people very welcoming and helpful and friendly in every way. Yet they dont intrude on your privacy at all.
There are some lovely bars and resteraunts not a million miles drive away, We liked the Camping bar at Comares.
We both liked it so much we rebooked for next june before we left.
All in all we found La paz a very relaxing and peaceful little paradise, and would not hesitate recommending it to anyone.

Owner's Response: A number of guests have returned to La Paz over the years and we are very pleased and proud when that happens. I think Frank & Brenda are our first visitors to book 2 weeks for the following year - while still on holiday at our rural Farmhouse Studio! A happy holiday and we are looking forward to seeing them next year! Thanks, Carl, Maria & Ginny

Beautiful La Paz

  • 5 of 5
5 star rustic charm, lovely people Carl and Maria, so helpful and bonus of friendly Ginny to go walks with. Completely different holiday to what we have always done, always stayed in hotels but this was without doubt one of the best holidays we have had, it was definitely an adventure for us and although it was hair raising to get to it was well worth it even for a couple of recycled teenagers like us, the views are amazing, especially the sky at night. Cordoba, Ronda etc. all easy to get to. Comares well worth a visit but then again really loved the whole area and the people. We will most certainly go again. Carl and Maria most helpful with all directions etc.

Owner's Response: During the last 10 years or so we have greeted my seasoned travelers who are used to staying off the beaten track and make a point of searching for rural accommodation that is tucked away in the countryside.....La Paz. Valerie & Trev were different in so much as they had previously booked hotels - so that the fact that they enjoyed their stay at our rustic outpost is fantastic! All our guests enjoy the clear night skies.....and Ginny our rental dog! Looking forward to seeing you again....Thanks. Carl

Merveilleux coin de paradis à La Paz !

  • 5 of 5
Après un chemin des plus sinueux, nous sommes arrivés à La Paz à la tombée de la nuit. Nous sommes directement tombés sous le charme de cet endroit digne de carte postale.Gynny, le chien, nous attendait sur le devant de la maison; il est directement devenu notre ami et le compagnon de nos moments de détente au bord de la piscine. La petite casita est décorée avec beaucoup de goût et d'une propreté impeccable. Une petite collation nous attendait dans le frigo :-) Sympathique attention que nous avons directement consommée au clair de lune. La piscine, les petites terasses ... tout est parfait. Carl et Maria sont des hôtes exceptionnels; présents quand nécessaires, prévenants et pas envahissants. Nous avons pu disposer d'une parfaite intimité.
Nous recommendons très vivement ce petit "Hideaway for 2" à tous ceux qui éprouvent l'envie d'un moment à 2, qui aiment le charme tranquille de l'Andalousie, les jolis "pueblos blancos", le bon vin et les tapas ...

Utter tranquility!

  • 5 of 5
We're not used to staying so close to the owners so were a bit nervous that this might be a 'matey' holiday, but no - it was perfect. Carl and Maria (and Ginny!), our hosts, were spot on - welcoming, friendly, chatty - but definitely not intrusive.

And as for La Paz - it was, without doubt, the most peaceful holiday we've ever had. It got to the point that we were getting a bit annoyed by the (elusive, but constant) cuckoo breaking the silence! Ha ha! The noises we heard were mainly of fantastic wildlife - the daily 'drone' from the bees enjoying the beautiful gardens, the toads calling out at dusk, the woodpecker and Little Owl doing what they do - and, of course, the happy 'pop' of our chilled Cava corks. (Thank you for the poolside fridges!)

All wonderfully relaxing.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Jo & Colin stay at La Paz and they certainly found it a place in which they could relax. Not sure which of the country noises they liked best.....but think the happy " pop" of Bubbly corks was somewhere near the top! Hope to see you again soon! Carl
