Axarquia (Costa del Sol) Villa Rental Photos and Description

Spacious accommodation including 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps up to 6.

Casa Guisante de Olor is a new two bedroom villa overlooking citrus and avocado groves, offering breathtaking views from its elevated position on the edge of the Sierra de Tejeda national park. It has been beautifully furnished and has a private pool. Situated below one of Andalucia's most picturesque and unspoilt white hill top villages Comares, which is a fascinating and interesting place to explore. Your spacious accommodation is set on two levels. On the upper level there are two beautiful bedrooms both with en-suite Bathrooms, fitted wardrobes ceiling fans and French windows leading on to an impressive terrace with amazing views across to the see and mountains. Downstairs there is a lounge/diner with air conditioning, which is very well furnished, including a leather sofa bed, and there is a very well equipped kitchen and shower room. Leading from downstairs onto a covered porch are two set of french doors, this overlooks the swimming pool and also has the same fantastic views.

This is the place to come for a wonderful relaxing holiday, offering peace and tranquillity, yet the nearest beach is at Torre del Mar which is only 25mins drive away, the shops and markets of Velez Malaga, the nearest town are only 20mins away. In Comares which is just 5 mins away you will find plenty of bars and restaurants, but if you prefer to relax at the villa one evening, and do not want the hassle of cooking, the owner has a well deserved reputation for her excellent cuisine and will cater for you, with prior arrangement.

Stunning Villa with Breathtaking Views of Mountains and Sea
average rating of 5.0 based on 24 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from this property-Last night in fact!

We had the most fabulous time. The villa was immaculate. Very well presented, and very well equipped. The views from the top balcony were just wonderful-With mountains, rolling countryside and sea- all encompassed in a sweep of the eye.

Sally and Paul were very nice people,friendly and helpful,but not too obtrusive.

I would definitely reccomend this property to friends and family.

We will definitely be returning!

We keep coming back to this wonderful villa. It never fails to impress, always immaculate and welcoming, so well looked after by its friendly owners Sally and Paul. If you want peace and quiet, and enjoy stunning views, in a very well equipped villa then this is the place for you. We are already booking for next year!

Breathtaking views says it all!

  • 5 of 5

Two parents, Thomas (12) and Amy (15) spent two fabulous weeks at this villa. Everything was clean, well-equipped and well-maintained. The owners are just up the road so any problems are quickly dealt with. The nearest little supermarket in the village of Benamarcosa (15 min. drive) has just about the best butcher I've seen. Get him to bone a chicken! If you want peace and quiet, great walks and a bit of family bonding, then this is where you want to be. And those views - wow!

Superb and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property. It's out in the country and very peaceful but near enough to towns for you to be well-catered for.

The scenery is stunning and, yes, you can see the coast. The property has all mod-cons and UK TV channels.

I must recommend visiting Malaga. It really is a revelation with a combination of history and swanky new parts. One of our favourite spots turned out to be the botanic gardens on the outskirts.

There are some good walks nearby and the owners will advise on routes.

Granada is 1hr 40mins away.

You could just stay put and relax, or get out there and explore. There's lots to see.

The villa is great value and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Another Wonderful Week in a Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Sally and Paul's wonderful villa and we will certainly be back! A home from home the villa is equipped with everything you need including a view that is absolutely breathtaking! Peace and quiet and stunning scenery - what more could you need!

We had another week of gorgeous weather, sunbathing and swimming all day and some lovely bbq's in the evenings!

We also took a day trip to Granada to see the Alhambra Palace for the first time - well worth a visit!!

Sally and Paul are wonderful hosts and are always on hand to help even phoning Granada for us to help reserve a wheelchair for the day for our daughter.

We cannot wait to return for another stay at the villa, our only negative was that we could only come for one week!

Comares only 5 minutes away, is one of Andalucia's most picturesque and unspoilt white hill top villages, it is perched on one of the highest peaks in the Sierra de Tejeda national park and is known as the 'Balcon de Axarquia'. The village was of strategic importance during Moorish times and was one of the bases of Omar ben Hafsun. At the highest point of the village there are ruins of a Moorish castle. The village remains unspoilt and is a fascinating place to explore, with its spectacular views, and is ideal to pop to for an excellent lazy lunch.

Velez Malaga a 20 minute drive, is a typical Spanish Town with an old quarter dating back to Moorish occupation. It has an old castle La Fortaleza, of which a restored tower remains, set in pretty gardens. There are also two interesting old churches. The town has an excellent municipal market every day except Sunday, selling local produce, fish meat, vegetables and fruit. There is also a wide range of modern shops and supermarkets.
