Comares Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 13

School House Villa was originally the old school for children living in the countryside near Riogordo town. Renovated 8 years ago it is now a beautiful house with both traditional Andalucian features and all modern facilities. With 5 spacious bedrooms and both interior and exterior dining areas it is ideal for a large family or families sharing. Equally a group of friends wishing to relax in the Axarquia countryside would be happy here.

The 9 x 4 meter swimming pool is surrounded by a huge terrace and sun loungers and shade are provided. The pool is particularly suitable for young children as it has a gate which can be closed.

The views from the villa and pool area are stunning and the house is not overlooked by other properties.

School House Villa is the perfect place to relax after the stress and noise of city life.

average rating of 4.5 based on 6 reviews

fabulous villa with stunning views!!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful villa truly in the middle of nowhere. Stunning views total peace and tranquility. Villa is spotlessly clean and much better than it looks in the pictures, extremely spacious and very well equipped the only thing missing was a corkscrew!! Problem on arrival with wifi but the issue was resolved by lunchtime the following day which is truly remarkable by Spanish standards!! Wifi plus the large clean pool meant our four children ages 3,6,10 and 13 were kept entertained and never bored. On the downside (hence 4 stars not 5) is the road leading up to the villa, road isn't how to describe it as it is actually a dirt track and if we hadn't been met in the village by a very friendly representitive of the owner we would never in a million years have found the place! Owners advised a car as essential but in fairness the car really does need to be a 4x4 otherwise you will struggle to get up the track. So if you are wanting crowds and nightlife avoid at all costs but if you are looking for a beautiful spotless spacious villa with stunning views really out in the middle of true Spanish nowhere then this is the place for you. Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: What a fantastic review! Stunning views, total peace and tranquility. Perfect for a family holiday. ( sorry about the corkscrew!). The villa is managed by a local speaking English, Spanish & French so help to fix any problems or advice required is only a phone call away. Guest are Always met in nearby Riogordo town on arrival and guided to the villa because Julie is right - first time its not easy to find located in the countryside on its own large plot of land and not overlooked. Just to clarify, there is a surfaced road almost all the way to the villa. Only the last 300 meters is a private dirt track. And I must disagree with the comment that a 4x4 is required ( although respecting this reviewers view). All previous visitors and we the family of owners drive there in between lets using small cars ( including 2 VW Golfs & a Mini) so yes a car is essential but a normal car is fine. Thanks Julie for taking the time to write...With Highly recommended we are very pleased! Nuria & Carl

A house with a spectacular view!

  • 4 of 5

We, an extended family of 11, had a lovely time in this house! Luckily, we were met in Riogordo by very friendly and welcoming people, since this is in the very heart of of the agricultural Andalucia and we really enjoyed the spectacular view. Both children and adults spent a lot of time around the pool, but we also took a few walks in the countryside. The area is perfect for trips to the beautiful village Comares (20 km), the coast and cities as Grenada (Alhambra) and Malaga. We would be happy to return.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased with this review as it describes exactly what School House Villa is all about; Relaxing by the pool in the Andalusian countryside! With 5 large bedrooms and a huge swimming pool Marie & her party of 11 from Sweden had plenty of space - the villa sleeps up to 13 persons. Tucked away on its own private hilltop with far reaching views all around it is not easy to find on arrival so guests are met in nearby Riogordo town plaza and shown the way the villa. Riogordo, in the river valley, has several local shops and bar/restaurants and Comares hilltop village is a must visit. We hope Marie and family visit us again next year.

Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away for Christmas with the family and we had the best time in the school house. The views are simply stunning, the house is lovely and the rooms are great. We visited the nearby villages of Riogordo and lovely Comares: both highly recommended!

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette villa.

Les enfants comme les adultes se sont régalé avec la piscine, la maison est propre et claire.

Le papa de la propriétaire est adorable, il nous a très bien accueilli et était très disponible en cas de besoin.

La végétation autour est magnifique, citronnier, vignes, amandiers, figues de barbarie... La seule chose négative fut quelques fourmis qui aimait se promener dans la cuisine ...

En tout cas tout ce qui est promis dans l'annonce était la, wifi, serviettes propres, barbecue .....

A y retourner sans hésiter !

Mis vacaciones perfectas

  • 5 of 5

El año pasado estuve en esta casa con un grupo de amigos y lo pasamos genial.

La casa es estupenda y el sitio es precioso. Estuvimos muy tranquilos y relajados entre barbacoas y cervecitas. Los ratos de diversión en la piscina y las largas veladas al fresquito nos cargaron las pilas por un largo tiempo. Este año estamos cuadrando agenda porque nos gustaria repetir. Otra cosa a destacar es que la ropietaria nos trató muy bien y nos recogió en el pueblo que esta cerca. En resumen ¡¡¡FABULOSO!!!

School House Villa is a short drive from Riogordo . Located in the river valley it has all the local shops, banks, bakery, butchers, medical center and bar/restaurants etc that are needed for a relaxing holiday in a rural Axarquia location. Traveling in the other direction, only a 15 minutes drive, is the hilltop village of Comares, a pretty pueblo blanco with views to the Mediterranean.

Although less than an hour by car from Malaga with the Picasso museum and great shopping and tapas bars, the area is quiet and perfect for relaxing by the pool! When your batteries are recharged the Costa del Sol beaches are only around 30 mins or so by car so from this location you get the best of both worlds.

The villa makes a good rural location for visiting the sights of Andalucia also. Granada and the Alhambra Palace, Cordoba and Antequera are are served by good roads and make fun day trips. Nerja is another favorite with sandy beaches and famous caves.

Nearby there are many routes for hiking and horse riding. The opportunities to enjoy the countryside of Southern Spain are many - and start at the front door of the villa !

Ideal for walking and bird watching too.
