About the property

Casa de Pepe (CR/MA/01064) is a traditional Andalucian cortijo with fantastic mountain and sea views from its two terraces. The property comprises of a large patio and covered terrace area on the ground floor, leading into the indoor dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin) and the bathroom. There are stairs leading to the large and airy living room with doors out onto the upstairs terrace. This terrace can also be reached via an external staircase. There is a private plunge pool (3.6m/12ft diameter) for cooling off on the hot summer days and a gas BBQ for al fresco dining.

Casa de Pepe provides the best of both worlds. It is the ideal place to relax and unwind as the area is quiet with views that constantly change as the sun moves. Equally, it provides a great base from which to explore the region of Andalucia.

With an average 320 days of sunshine a year, this area of Spain makes an ideal all year round destination. Indeed, La Alqueria is set in a micro climate, and isn't affected as much by the winds and so it is usually still warm enough to sit outside during the day time even in winter, although the nights are cold once the sun goes down. If you holiday over the winter you will be able to see the snow capped peak of La Maroma from the terrace and enjoy the wood terrace in the living room. In the summer, the south facing aspect makes it a sun worshippers paradise, the covered terrace provides a shady and cooler place to sit if you want to get out of the sun. As the house is built in the traditional style, the walls are thick and so inside the property it remains cool even during the summer months.

Within the property there are steps to the bedrooms and to the kitchen which would make it unsuitable for a wheelchair user. The surrounding area is also hilly and so may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.

Car hire is essential.

Tea/coffee making facilities are available and a free welcome pack is provided on arrival for stays of 3 nights or more. (Upgrades are available, please ask for further details).

About Jane and Luc

We have just fulfilled our dream of living in Spain by buying in La Alqueria. We wanted traditional Spain and this area offers that in abundance. Still, if we want to go out and about there is a lot on our doorstep, historic sights, beaches, museums and much, much more.

Jane and Luc purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Jane and Luc chose Comares

The minute we first saw the property we fell in love. The views are nothing short of fantastic, mountains, sea and white washed villages - what's not to like? At night the sky is filled with stars, and in the morning Venus greets you while you sip your coffee - priceless!!

What makes this farmhouse unique

This property offers complete R&R, quiet, peaceful and affordable. At Casa de Pepe you can do as much, or as little, as you want. The village of Comares offers all you need for your holiday including banks, restaurants, bars, small supermarket and a weekly market in the square.

BLOWN AWAY BY THIS PERFECT RETREAT 6th – 20th September 2017 5 out of 5

  • 5 of 5

This holiday was the best experience my wife and I have had in Spain ever. As seasoned travellers to Spain and having lived in Spain we thought we knew what to expect, how wrong we were, it was above and beyond all expectations.

Where to start.

Let’s start with the owners who without them this experience would not be possible. Jane and Luc were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble, the plunge pool was cleaned daily early in the mornings, they were on hand if you had any issues as they live next door yet you could go for days without seeing anyone. Jane, Luc thank you.

The journey to Casa de Pepe was an hour from the airport 70% on Duel carriageway and A roads the climb into the mountain was thrilling, my wife has a different words for it but she does have a problem with heights. Casa de Pepe is pinned on google maps so a smart phone will take you to the door, however my phone stopped working luckily I had printed of the route beforehand with my wife navigating we got to within 100yds before we had to make the phone call!...

The property its self was fantastic with plenty of room with all the facilities you needed, everything was in working order and clean, with two outstanding sun terraces and one shaded area it was perfect to take in the breath taking views that seemed to change every morning. The plunge pool was more than enough to cool off as temperatures touched 50° and the water temperature hovered between 24° and 28°. It made that evening dip with a glass of something rather special too.

We had fresh bread delivered every day and fresh fish three times a week, some of the freshest sardines and squid you will ever likely to eat.

When we did venture to the local village of Comares it’s was so clean and well kept, and not as touristy as other Moorish villages we had visited.

I could go on and on but you should go and visit to find your real Spain experience.

Michelle & Andy

Total Relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Booked Casa De Pepe for 2 weeks mainly to relax and celebrate my 50th birthday with my husband an a couple of friends. Jane and Luc are an amazing couple who cant do enough for you. Before we arrived at Casa De Pepe, we phoned Jane for the best place to get some shopping she gave us directions to the local supermarket in Velez Malaga. Upon arrival we phoned and Luc met us at the top of the road to follow him down to the house.

They had left us provisions in the fridge, eggs, cold meat, milk, butter, fresh orange, tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, soap powder, washing up liquid, not forgetting the bowl of delicious cherries too! Luc even went to the supermarket for us on the first night as we ran out of wine. Thanks Luc.

The house is fantastic with everything you need.

Double bedroom is a reasonable size with chest of drawers and double wardrobe and a welcomed fan, although the farmhouse is cooler than outside, we did feel we needed the fan after all we were there end of July beginning Aug. Twin room also with double wardrobe.

Living room upstairs via stair off the dining room or up the outside stair leading to the outside balcony with sunbeds and dining table. There is a tv with videos, wii, books and lots more, we never used the lounge we sat mostly outside downstairs.

Dining room with large dresser stocked well with plenty glasses cups etc. Information table with all the local information you might need, if not Jane and Luc are always on hand for any questions you might have. There is also a safe, but we never felt the need to use it we felt confident that our belongings were safe enough.

Kitchen is not overly large but it had all the requirements needed for your holiday, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettle toaster, fridge freezer, all utensils, etc.

Homemade birthday cake from Jane and Luc a bottle of Cava and a card for my birthday, what a thoughtful thing.

All in all think this place has to have been one of the most relaxing and chilled out places I have ever been. Without a doubt we will be back and also be recommending to friends.

Plunge pool excellent relief when we got too hot, most days the temperature in the pool was 30-35°C

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Jane & Luc all the best with their business as they continue to work hard.

Lovely holiday. Real Spain. Fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at this well appointed, well equipped, comfortable house. The views are stunning, the light on the mountains is always changing, hours were spent watching the beautiful views. We went on interesting walks from the door. Jane and Luc were incredibly helpful, and have great local knowledge. Comares is a lovely hilltop village, an easy drive, just minutes away from the house. Great holiday, would recommend it to anyone.

Myself and my partner recently spent a week at Casa de Pepe. Luc and Jane were very welcoming, and had provided us with a great food parcel when we arrived. The plan was to do quite a lot of sightseeing, but, when we arrived the weather was warmer than expected, so we took full advantage of the terrace and BBQ, and enjoyed the views for much of the time. We could feel the stress wash away.

We did visit Comares and followed the trail around the village. There are a lot of steep slopes, but it's worth the walk around this lovely village which gave us a good excuse for some well deserved tapas in Bar La Plaza in the main square. A trip to the coastal town of Torre del Mar and a bus ride to Malaga completed our sightseeing, but we will be back.

Casa de Pepe is an ideal location from which to explore much of historic Spain. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting to kick back and enjoy the slow paced life in this beautiful area.

Increibles vistas, casa muy acogedora

  • 5 of 5

La propiedad es muy bonita, está equipada con todo lo necesario. Echámos de menos una tostadora o no la encontramos pero tenía hasta el más mínimo detalle, estaba muy limpia y cuidada, las curvas para llegar merecen la pena y la piscina más que suficiente para refrescarte. Una casa estupenda, gracias.
