Villa 'Los Pinos' is named after the Pine trees on the hillside behind the villa. Located just above a country road with private driveway, this country villa enjoys excellent country views from the villa and terrace. The private location is not overlooked and the heated swimming pool and terraces invite al fresco dining. Comares, the highest village in the Axarquia region of Andalucia, is a 10 minute drive. Here you will find several bar/restaurants serving good tapas and meals, banks, chemists and tobaconists. The tiny hamlet of Los Ventorros is just a 20 minute walk from the villa and has two good bar/restaurants Table Mountain and El Molino , there is also a local general store selling fresh produce and bread etc. There is also a Craft Centre selling hand made goods, paintings, ornaments, etc..quite unique. Villa Los Pinos is conveniently situated, a 30 minute drive from the Mediterranean coast at Torre del Mar and a 1 hour drive from Malaga city and airport. Explore Andalucia and enjoy the sunny country views this spacious rural villa has to offer.
It has good views, is private, good area for walking good access on tarmac road. not far from two good restaurants, one traditional family run and the other one more Mediterranean and International.
Its been a week of bliss for the 2 of us. Its not often we manage to get away on our own and your villa is a big place for 2 - but we loved everyday. Highlights were the pool, country walks and the local villages. Thanks for making the villa just perfect for our arrival and being close by when help was needed. Home now but we won´t forget our escape to Los Pinos!!
Loved the dominant position of the villa and the peaceful location, having rented villas in this region before, nicely decorated /Tiled bathrooms / En-suite nice size lounge good facilities in the kitchen, possibly a bit more ovenware would be a bonus and things like butter dish, cruet set would be good, but we had a relaxing enjoyable holiday and thought the rental was very good value for money, enjoyed the pool some respite from the 90 degree tempretures we had all in all a very good rental and really good value for money would highly recommend . We rented as a couple but all good size bedrooms for a large family .
I stayed at Los Pinos early May 2015 with friends.
The villa itself is in a lovely location, with fantastic views and provides complete privacy. It is very well laid out, so that if there is a group, you are able to be together or find your own space both in and outside of the villa. Plenty of seating, tables and sunlougers in all areas. The kitchen is very well equipped with an abundance of plates, cutlery and every conceivable utensil that you may wish to use. Absolutely everything has been thought of and provided at this villa.
We paid extra to have the pool heated and I fully recommend this to people visiting out of season.
The local Table Mountain bar/restaurant is very welcoming with staff happy to provide local information. There is a comprehensive menu with high standard of quality and presentation at very reasonable prices.
Comares is a beautiful small town, with a small, but well stocked supermarket. To reach this you have to park beneath the town and then walk up the narrow streets so therefore probably not the best for a large shop. There is a lovely small town, Riogordo, about 25 mins drive away with on street parking, providing a couple of small supermarkets, butchers, grocers, etc. Benarmagosa is probably the best for a good sized supermarket and being able to park outside, again about 25 mins away. About 10 mins further is Velez de Malaga, a much larger town with several supermarkets including a Lidl.
I fully recommend this villa and found the owner to be very quick at responding to all enquiries. Thank you and will certainly be looking to stay again.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Villa, had all the necessary mod cons etc, air conditioning, TV/DVD, 2 bathrooms, great views, plenty of shade, BBQ, great pool.
We were well looked after by Carl at Homeaway, directions were good (although we preferred the return trip to the airport via Velez Malaga & Triana). Went to Table Mountain restaurant in the local village (only walk it if your are feeling energetic), very good food and wine. We were also in Comares, a small town about 10 minutes away by car, fantastic views, local shop with everything you need, couple of bars, information office, bank, tobacconist and some restaurants.
We would recommend to friends (we were only 2 people), but there is room for 8/10 guests comfortably.
Might even revisit next year
We had a amazing holiday in Los Pinos Villa. Pool was great and house was very good live with children. If you want relaxing holiday, this is place what we can really recommend. All contacts between me and owner was fast and easy. Everything was just what we waited and even more. Perfect holiday!
We had a very nice holiday with our family in vila Los Pinos. The house had an amazing view, and the terrace with the pool was very nice. We visited Comares, and it was an amazing city with a wonderful view from the top of the mountains. We can really recomand the house, and the nice place to others.
We had a wonderful group family holiday at Los Pinos. The property was very well maintained and clean. It had great facilities and a standard size fridge freezer which was great to stock up on food for a few days without having to shop everyday. The layout of the house was perfect for us with the children including our youngest 2yrs. Arthur was very helpful when we arrived late on the Monday evening and the cot had not been delivered and had arranged for it to be brought to the house within a few hours. The only point to make is that the drive up to the house from Malaga & Velez-Malaga is very windy around the mountains/hills with several hairpin bends, this did cause a few issues with the children feeling sick several times. Just be prepared for the journey. We did get used to it as the holiday went on. Thank you again. We would highly recommend it.
