Amazing, unique property but need a car
We had a really amazing stay at the villa. It is certainly unique and quirky! The roads up to the villa are a bit twisty but in good condition so there is nothing to worry about from that perspective. You definitely need a car to enjoy the area, but Comares itself has everything that you may need for a stay if you aren't able to get out and about too much.
The property itself has plenty of room in distinctly separate areas which is a good thing in a larger group and it had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. It was very clean and there was always somewhere to sit in the shade within the gardens. The views are obviously spectacular across the countryside and up into Comares, there is even interest in the climbers underneath your feet! We had mountain goats trotting through the gardens too, which was certainly an experience!
The top "apartment" into the domed ceiling is airconditioned, but the rest of the house does not have air conditioning and, on occasion, although there were fans provided, on the hottest days it was quite warm inside the villa. However, very often there was a mountain breeze that swept across the villa which was extremely welcome most afternoons!
Kate and Tim were very helpful and welcoming, they are lucky to have such a lovely property in such a nice area with commanding views across Spain.
Comares itself has a swimming pool close by which we all enjoyed for very little expenditure: 1 euro for kids 2 euros for us adults.
As expected, this house is in a *relatively* remote area, so to get anywhere does take some time, although actual distances are not that far, but you can get to the beach within 40 minutes or so by car and into Malaga within an hour so there is plenty to do around the area.
In summary, book it! You won't be disappointed!
We loved our 10 day stay at this property. The house has stunning views from almost every window and (literally!) being on the edge of the tiny village, meant a 1 minute walk to the bar for morning coffee and another minute to the (very good) supermarket for supplies. We were 2 families, including 3 teenagers and the house had lots of different areas where we could have our own space if needed. The house was very comfortable, had everything we needed and we felt at home immediately. We would happily stay again at this unique place and the lovely village of Comares.
It was amazing - the views are just great and once you find the best route up the mountains getting to places was easy.
Keeps you fit too.
It is an enchanting cliff top house
This is a completely different place to stay. Yes it is quirky, but you have so many different options, of where to eat, sleep or to relax. We chose to sleep in the dome, as you wake up looking across the valley. You also have your own private Balcon Comares and yes, you do see people climbing the rocks below you!.
Stunning views in a tranquil setting
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very well equipped and every room had its own charm. It was also nice to have a welcome pack on our arrival . The owners Kate & Tim were easily contactable for advice about local amenities. The views were amazing and the locals very friendly.
There are some great local restaurants, the small supermarket in the village is well stocked and a huge supermarket in the shopping mall at Torre del Mar .
The house had a lot of steps which some elderly visitors may find challenging but we got used to this quite quickly and it was worth it for the views from the top terrace.
Overall a lovely place to stay.
The house was amazing and immaculate. The location is stunning with great views from all around but especially from the top terrace where we spent most of our time. Lots of room for our family and extremely comfortable inside the house.
You are only a couple of minutes from the very friendly village which has excellent restaurants and various bars.
All in all we had a fabulous holiday and hope to return one day.
