Comares Villa Rental Photos and Description

Rural Family Villa in South facing location with beautiful country views.

Villa Carolina is a modern villa of classic design on 2 floors. It offers versatile accommodation with 3 bedrooms on the upper floor and 2 full bathrooms - one on each floor. The open plan lounge dining area has comfortable seating and opens onto a shaded terrace with dining table which overlooks the swimming pool. The views across the Andalucian hills are stunning! The stylish kitchen is bright and well equipped for a family wishing to cater for themselves.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the villa, well equipped and butter, jam, beers, eggs, milk etc in fridge ready for us to arrive. This views are stunning, comares is a beautiful village set in the mountains. Lovely eateries, we ate at table mountain and el Molina both very different but both very welcoming. Locals here are all very friendly. The beach resort torre del mar is a short journey down the mountain we really liked it there. The villa is situated in a fantastic position and made our many trips out easy, was always lovely to return to the peace and quiet of these wonderful mountains. In our party there was 5 adults 1 child ages 9, 17,42,50,64 and 74 and this villa was perfect for all ages. Can't wait to return.

Fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Villacarolina is in a fantastic location with wonderful views across the valley. Very quiet and peaceful just listening to the birds and watching the goats on the hillside. The house itself is roomy and we'll equipped and the pool was superb. We were met at the house by Carl who was very friendly and helpful and even had a cold beer for us on arrival along with some other basic groceries. All in all we had a great holiday at Villacarolina. Comares is a super little village with views to die for. There are some excellent eating places roundabout too. Certainly would recommend it and would love to return sometime.

Delightful villa in a perfect rural location

  • 5 of 5

We actually enjoyed navigating the twisting country roads and it was well worth the effort as Villa Carolina was all we hoped for when we arrived - private, peaceful, and in a very picturesque rural setting. We found it immaculately clean, modern, comfortable and well equipped. And the pool was a real treat in the unexpected heatwave with temperatures in the high 30s!

A perfect setting in which to sip a glass of Rioja on the terrace while listening to the birds and watching the goats wander the hillside.

There are a number of bars and restaurants in and en route to the nearby interesting hilltop village of Comares, which has stunning views and also offers a small but well stocked Coviran supermarket, plus pharmacy, ATM, etc. and provided all we needed to top up the supplies we had bought en route at the huge Eroski supermarket in Velez-Malaga.

We can't praise Carl and Maria highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were extremely kind and helpful.

We have been to the area many times and this was one of the nicest villas we have stayed in and is excellent value too. Our 2½ week stay was not long enough! We hope to return next year and definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a rural haven in the real Spain

As good as ever

  • 5 of 5

Returning to a place allows you to see how it is being maintained. Wear and tear lead to some places looking tired and a bit dilapidated. Not so here. For our third stay in Villa Carolina we noticed pleasing signs of significant money spent on upkeep. The awnings had been replaced; there’s a very good quality new pan in the kitchen; there were new chairs outside and a couple of new parasols. Spotlessly clean and fresh as ever (thanks Val), pool cleaned while we were there. Well looked after by Carl and Maria. What more can we say? Refer to two previous reviews, and highly recommended as before.

Beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 16 year old daughter and I had a wonderful relaxing break in Villa Carolina. We were met by Carl after a lovely drive up the mountain. He showed us around and had left us a welcome pack of bread, beer, water, milk and other essentials.

The villa was lovely and clean with absolutely stunning views. We were there purely to relax so didn't do any day trips anywhere. We did go to the village a few times and it was gorgeous with even more stunning views. You can follow the ceramic footprints around the town so you get to see most of it without getting too lost! Watch out for the lovely Maria who entices you into her house and plies you with fruit and cheese so you feel obliged to buy some, she gives you a lot though and it's gorgeous.

We ate at Table Mountain and definitely recommend it to anyone in the area, beautiful food and friendly staff.

We loved sitting outside and just taking in the surroundings, very quiet and felt very remote. We listened to the goats and we could just see the goat herd moving them around the hillside. Perfect place to unwind.

Mark and Carl were great to deal with and we would recommend the villa to anyone who wants to relax or who wants to use it as a base to explore the area.

Villa Carolina is situated in La Alqueria area of Comares on a sunny South facing hillside. Just a short drive from the pretty hilltop village, Comares has stunning views to the Mediterranean coast at Torre del Mar. As well as a small central plaza with a typical tapas bar the village has a good local shop selling fresh local produce, bread, wine & beers, etc.. The bank with cash machine, pharmacy, tobaconist ans several bar/restaurants make it a convenient place to shop and relax.

Villa Carolina is surrounded by countryside and perfect for walking; either directly from the villa or on the marked walks around Comares.

Torre del Mar is the nearest beach resort with a long sandy beach and facilities for all ages. Supermarkets and street markets are found here just 30 minutes drive from the villa.

Malaga is a one hour drive so visiting the old city with Castle, Picasso Museum and great tapas bars is a fun day out.

Granada & the Alhambra Palace is a must see day trip.
