STUDIO WITH PRIVATE POOL (NOT SHARED) OVERLOOKING STUNNING VIEWS

Comares Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Lounge/kitchenette, en suite shower room, private pool, not shared or overlooked

Casa Lorel Studio is part of the main house in the hamlet of Las Cuevas. A long private concrete drive up to the Studio, which is a combined lounge/kitchenette, with all the essentials you'll need for your holiday, nestling in 3 acres and away from the main road, so very peaceful, its south facing terraces have the sun all day with views over the valley and up to Comares, (a pretty tourist village with stunning views of the coast and mountains), well worth a visit, especially with your camera. There are some beautiful walks and good local bars, you can take a drive and see some of Andalucia or just relax by the pool. Once here, you will love the warmth of the summer sunshine, the clean air and the beautiful landscapes, even sitting by the pool you will enjoy the varied views or maybe pop along to one of the bars for a coffee and tapas, they serve very reasonably priced meals. Internet access available via WiFi should you require it, you can do as little or as much as you wish, just enjoy the peaceful surroundings during your stay here in Las Cuevas

Why not visit some of the local fiestas, held in the many villages around the Axarquia region, there are plently of them happening around the summer months, from June right up until September, there is San Juan (the longest day), which takes place in June, thousand of people gather on the many beaches to give thanks and make wishes for the coming year, floating candles out on to the sea from the shore, dipping your feet in the sea and making a wish, or even having a late night swim in the warm evening air, there are fireworks, live bands and plenty of bars to visit to have a meal or tapa, there are stalls to visit, all selling a variety of goods from clothes to food, it's a wonderful sight and many people camp on the beach overnight, having picnics and barbecues, making the most of the longest day. You can find out more about the different areas, different fiestas and the significant meaning to them, by looking them up on the internet, go on to: andalucia.com website.

Although we are situated in the campo, there are many things to see and do in the Axarquia region, most of them are just a 30 minute drive, Velez-Malaga is just 20 mins drive where there are an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants, Caleta is also 20 mins drive, there you can walk along the sea front all the way to Torre del Mar if you wish, in Torre del Mar there are loads of shops, bars and restauruants, and in the evenings, little stalls open up, selling clothes, food, tapas, jewellery, all sorts of things. Also in Caleta is a pretty Marina, where you can hire a boat and enjoy a trip out on the med, food and drink supplied, you can have a swim in the sea and even go in search of dolphins, we can give you details or book a boat trip for you, just ask during your stay here!

Car hire is recommended as we are in the Campo (countryside) there is a local bar/restaurant which can be waled to, but there are no shops within walking distance but everything is a short car ride away. We can taxi you to the shops and bars if you choose not to hire a car, especially if you want a very relaxing holiday just chilling by the pool.

We have 4 dogs, 2 very old, Ali and Pez and 1 4 years old (Jess) and Rosa 2 year old, all very calm, they are all rescue dogs and were all very poorly when we got them, but all are fit and well now though, we love them to bits and hope you will too.

About Lorraine Pendry

We have been visiting this part of Spain for many years, we adore the Axarquia region, we never tire of the wonderful views and stunning scenery, we love telling our guests all about it and guiding them to places of natural beauty and interest, we would love you to join us here for your holiday and guide you the sights too!

Why Lorraine Pendry chose Comares

We were shown a few parcels of land, but none were what we wanted, but then one of our friends who was in property, told us of this plot of land in Las Cuevas, we though we should take a look, well, we fell in love with the lovely views and the size of the plot, we couldn't say no!! Within 6 months the house was built and here we are, 7 years later!!! Moving to Spain was the best thing we ever did, with our family and friends visiting us and we have made some wonderful friends, Spanish and English, what more could we want!

What makes this apartment unique

The wonderful climate, although we do have some really wet winters, overall the weather is wonderful, you know you can rely on the weather in the summer for a BBQ or a pool party! Even in the winter, during the day, if the sun is shining, it's warm, until the evening when the temperature drops, but never as cold as the UK, we love it!

An oasis in a stunning paradise

  • 5 of 5
I can only agree with all the reviews so far. The very warm welcome from Lorraine and Nigel (and couple of glasses of bubbly) helped to start our holiday off in the best way. The property suited our needs perfectly: a great base from which to explore all that Axarquia and the Costa del Sol had to offer. Lorraine and Nigel also suggested other places to visit such as the Lobo Park and the stunning restaurant El Charco with its amazing views and incredible food. Our days were spent in a mixture of exploring the area and relaxing at the studio reading and swimming and drinking Cava! We couldn't have wished for better hosts who did everything to make sure we relaxed and enjoyed our holiday. We would wholeheartedly recommend this property to friends and relatives and anyone wishing to get away from it all. The property was clean and maintained to a high standard and had everything we needed. I would go so far as to say that this was the best holiday we've had in Spain and most of that was down to the fabulous apartment and the wonderful Lorraine and Nigel. I very much hope we'll be able to go back before too long - I'd go back now if I could!!

This place should be available on the NHS!

  • 5 of 5
This place should be available on the NHS for anyone who needs to rest and relax! We had an absolutely chilled out week, and loved it! The accommodation is small but everything that you may need is there! The views are stunning, it looks like the Highlands of Scotland with little white houses everywhere and obviously a lot warmer than the Glens!

Nigel and Lorraine are hosts extraordinaire! They are delightful people, really made us feel at ease, and are so discreet, yet always to hand if you need them! They truly understand that this is your time away, and treasure that almost as much as you do!

We would recommend anyone who likes the quiet life, to head out here. We didn't hire a car, we simply spent a week enjoying the pool and the sunshine, and each other! Great to spend that much time with your significant other!

Thankyou again Nigel and Lorraine, for everything! And give our love to all the dogs!

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you both for your lovely kind comments, we loved having you here! We did enjoy our occasional drink together and of course the meal at Ortegas for you last evening with us. We would love for you to return for another stay with us soon, as next season the studio will be a little bigger with an added bedroom, so will be more spacious! Thank you for the gift of the bottle of Cava, which was enjoyed, by the way!!! Again, thank you for the lovely comments and of course I will give the dogs your love.

Kindest regards

A relaxing peaceful holiday

  • 4 of 5
This is the perfect spot for a relaxing peaceful holiday. The pool area with fabulous surrounding views has everything to make a day in the sun comfortable. The studio, although a little on the small side, is very well equipped and clean, with comfortable mattress, powerful shower, TV with all the English channels, very fast internet/wi-fi connection and good lighting. The lovely village of Benamorgosa, 11 kms away, has a very good little supermarket selling lots of good fresh local produce and excellent wine. Lorraine and Nigel are a lovely couple, very helpful and have an excellent knowledge of all things Spanish. The dogs are good value and very well behaved. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely recommend this property for a "get away from it all" break.

Summer of Peace and Quiet

  • 4 of 5
My partner and I stayed at Casa Lorel this summer - we were after a peaceful holiday away from it all and this certainly had that. We spent many days lazing around the pool which gets the sun all day round but shade is also provided when the sun gets too much. The views from the pool are stunning - looking straight across the valley to Comares (such a beautiful village to visit) and in the evening sitting round the pool with a glass of wine and watchng the stars - heavenly.

The owners, Lorraine and Nigel were very helpful, pointing us in the direction of other places to visit. We hired a car so took off most evenings for dinner either to nearby Torre Del Mar (approx 25mins drive) or to Nerja (approx 1hour) both have lovely restaurants and Nerja in particular has some stunning views and shops to suit all! (I found buying my partner ice cream from one of the many ice cream parlours distracted him from my spending!)

Also at Nerja a trip to the caves is a must if you're out that way, I live near many caves and caverns but never have I seen any quite like these. Lake Vinuela is also worth a visit and the restaurant El Charco serves delicious food over-looking the lake.

The studio was clean and the listing gives a very accurate description. Lorraine and Nigel have provided everything you could possibly need. We did find it a little hot at night with only a fan to cool us but we did visit when there was a ridiculous heat-wave so that was to be expected.

Towels were provided including towels for around the pool use and they were changed mid-way through our stay.

I would recommend Casa Lorel as a place to stay for those after a bit of peace and quiet and a chance to get away from it all. I would suggest hiring a car though as there is so much to see and it's nice to do it at your own pace - but if you do then contact Lorraine and Nigel for companies to avoid getting stung with petrol fees as we sadly did!

An enjoyable first holiday as a couple with lots of happy memories.
Many thanks Lorraine and Nigel and cuddles to the pooches even Jess if you can get near her for me!

Thanks
Jo and Matt

Owner's Response: We would like to thank you very much for your lovely comments, we are really pleased you enjoyed your holiday here. You certainly did enjoy the shops didn't you!! ( between you and me, I don't think the ice cream helped though), but Mat enjoyed the ice cream anyway! We do try to provide everything we can to help make your stay as relaxing as possible, like providing all towels, as I know how hard it is to get towels into hand luggage. We are looking into providing some form of cooling for next season, not air conditioning as it's not very environmentally friendly, but some sort of cooling system, we are sorry you had to suffer being hot, but this summer has been an exceptionally hot one, in the high 30's and 40's, we would love to have you visit again and I will certainly give the dogs a cuddle for you, even Jess! I'm glad you will have some lovely memories of your time here and that you will tell all your friends and family.

Thank you again

Wonderful early season break

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at Casa Lorel and it was every bit as good as the first time the year before. The location is magnificent with stunning views across to Comares a mountain top village in the distance. It really is the perfect chill out location and there is nothing better than interspersing a swim in the lovely pool with sitting under the gazebo if it is too hot and reading/listening to music surrounded by the fabulous scenery.
Lorraine and Nigel are the perfect hosts who will leave you to it if you want or share a drink and a chat if you want some company. They will also take you to restaurant/bars or places of interest (Comares is defintely worth a trip).
The studio accommodation is lovely with a fabulous en-suite shower room. All in all I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We hope we will see you again in the near future.

Thank you again

Delightful

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here at Casa Lorel in early May and had a lovely week.

It is a very nice comfortable and clean studio with lots of the little extras you don't usually get. A good welcome pack, tea, coffee, suger etc and all the kitchen and bathroom bits you'd need. Used the barbecue many times too.

Our hosts were very helpful and provided all our needs.

The setting is beautiful, peaceful and relaxing and we had a great time, we would certainly recomend it as a great place to visit and recharge your batteries.

David & Gill.

Las Cuevas is 1 hour from Malaga and 1 hour 20 mins from Granada situated in a triangle of villages, Comares 30 minutes drive, which is a pretty ‘blanco’ village sitting 739 metres above sea level, with amazing views from the Mediteranian coast to the mountains of Sierra Navada, Riogordo 10 mins drive and Benamagosa 20 mins drive, all pretty villages with small local run supermarkets and bars and within an hours drive of them all the attractions available are plenty, ranging from walks, go-carting, pony trekking, golf, water parks, beaches, historic cities, Spanish bars, restaurants, shopping centres and villages. Nerja only 1 hour away with it’s beaches and famous caves is a lovely place to visit and even the Sierra Navada Mountains are just a 2 hour drive away, with the stunning mountain range that stretches for miles, a spectacular sight to see. Also there are some beautiful coves and beaches along the Costa del Sol, some sandy, some pebbles, there is Torre del Mar, which has an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops and in the summer evenings, there are stalls that sell all kinds of goods, from clothes, handbags, sweets, icecream to tapas and don't forget the famous churros and chocolate, the long doughnut type pastry that you dip into the thick warm chocolate sauce, lovely! You can wander around for hours, in and out of different bars and restaurants all with their own different menus in the lovely warm evening air, sit on the beach late into the evening, even have a late swim or paddle in the sea. But If relaxing is all you need, then the Andalucia countryside is perfect for you, here you can enjoy picnics, birdwatching, stars gazing, painting, photography or simply relaxing by the pool. Enjoy a BBQ on the terrace with a cool drink and even take an evening dip in the pool, the warm evenings make the pool a lovely relaxing end to your evenings. During the summer months there are fiestas taking place in all the villages, you just have to look up on the internet to find out which one is happeninng where and when, you can even work your holiday around some of them, our own fiesta in Las Cuevas takes place on the first Saturday in August, so just a walk down the road to entertainment, music and a cool drink.
