Overview

About the property

Detached, stylish & modern villa fully equipped for a holiday in comfort.

Peña Blanca occupies a unique position atop a hill with distant sea views to the South. The Luxury Villa and Swimming Pool boast incredible views in every direction. Designed in style and constructed with comfort in mind, Peña Blanca is a home away from home where every detail has been incorporated to provide a perfect holiday location with modern conveniences included.

Peña Blanca Villa is a private home to enjoy and escape the busy everyday pressures. Finished with luxury touches, the Villa is very private, in a quiet situation and not overlooked by any other property.

This most stylish villa will appeal to adults seeking a self catering holiday where relaxing ' at home' is a pleasure.

The luxury kitchen and bathrooms are decorated to the highest standard using only quality materials. Cooking in the granite topped kitchen can be a pleasure! Families will also enjoy the facilities and enjoy walking into Comares village and day trips to the sandy beach, just a 30 minute drive.

Local Village - Comares: Comares village is within a 10 minute walk of the villa; or 5 mins by car. Comares sits high on a hill with views to the Mediterranean some 20 kms distant. Its a pretty ' Pueblo Blanco' with narrow streets winding uphill in two directions from the plaza. Although a little sleepy after the busy coast, it has enough facilities for shopping, eating and drinking. The village shop sells fresh bread, veg, meat and has a good beer & wine section. There is also a chemist, tobaconist, 2 restaurants and several bar/restaurants serving meals and tapas. For emergencies, the 24 hour medical centre is a 20 minute drive.

Shopping & Beach Life: Velez Malaga is the nearest large town and takes approx 30 minutes to drive to. A lively market town, you will find many supermarkets and an air conditioned shopping centre with multi complex cinemar, bowling and restaurants...This is the nearest town for buying fuel also.

Torre del Mar is a popular beach resort with a long sandy beach and Mediterranean promenade. Many beachside cafes are found here, many specialising in fish & seafood. Torre has restaurants to suit all tastes as well as bars and nightlife.

Torre del Mar has plenty of entertainment with cycle hire, horse riding, water park and go karting. Along the coast 2kms is the fishing port and marina of Caleta de Velez. Go for a boat ride or just enjoy lunch at the waters edge.

Touring Andalucia: Villa Peña Blanca is a good inland base from which to explore Andalucia. Malaga city has lots to see including the Picasso museum, castle, cathedral and good shopping. Many great tapas bars too!

Granada & the Alhambra Palace is approx a 90 minute drive and a must see day trip. Book online in advance.

Antequerra and Torcal National Park are nearby too. Nerja, less than an hour by car, has good beaches and famous caves. Seville & Cordoba are a little further on good roads but a worthwhile trip for the more adventurous.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved the villa, especially the pool late afternoon - evening. The views all around are stunning! We walked to Comares via the old Moorish steps at the bottom of the drive. Recommend the Molino restaurant and Mirador. For a more touristy area try Nerja. Loved Peña Blanca! P.S. WiFi great success for the kids!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pena Blanca for the first 2 weeks in August and didn't want to leave. We loved our stay there so much that we have already booked another fortnight next year! We were so impressed when we arrived - SO much better than the pictures and you just can't photograph or explain the feeling that you get just being there. Incredible views, complete privacy, tranquility - so calm and relaxing.

The villa has everything you could possibly need for a truly comfortable and enjoyable stay. We spent every evening outside at one of the various seating areas (of which there are many). The pool was excellent and very well maintained. Carl (property manager) is on hand if there's anything you need (or need to know!)

Comares is only a short walk away. The supermarket is very well stocked and very reasonably priced. We ate 3 times at Mirador (Bar Camping) and would recommend it - Great food reasonably priced, lovely staff - and they will happily call a cab for you when it's time to go home.

We could wax lyrical about Pena Blanca indefinitely, but I think the point we're making is - Book it, you won't regret it.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic week at Pena Blanca. The villa is a credit to Chris - The biggest compliment is that it never felt like a "holiday let". From the first morning it felt more like we had come "home" and that is down to the attention to detail - opening cupboards and finding candles. Little things that all added up to make a stay at this villa something special. It's location can't be faulted, so close to Comares but completely private and peaceful. Spent most of our time relaxing at the villa, got everything we needed for the week at the supermarket in Comares. Ate out once at Table Mountain - highly recommended! Thank you Chris for making your villa such a fantastic oasis of tranquility and homeliness, we hope to return ASAP

BEAUTIFUL SPECTACULAR VILLA

  • 5 of 5

Where to start!! This villa is stunning. So much space with so much attention to detail to make your stay here unforgettable. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. Fabulous pool and outside BBQ and oven for outside dining. Inside the kitchen is impressive very well equipped with everything you may need. The goats being walked up and down the area were a joy to watch you feel like you are in a nature programme! We have stayed in other properties in Comares and have struggled with fridge space, not the case here as there are 4...yes 4 fridges! The views are unbelievably stunning. I am an avid reader but only managed to read 1 book in our two week stay as its difficult to stop looking at the stunning scenery. The owner Chris has been a pleasure to deal with We cant wait to return next year. Many thanks Chris for making your stunning home available for us to enjoy. WARNING - VERY DEPRESSING LEAVING.

Owner's Response: It is great that the changes made for the 2016 season are appreciated. We have recently added a wine/beer fridge and an additional bar area with stools and fridge near the pool! So yes, 4 fridges. Perfect for chilling those refreshments on a hot Summer day! Thanks for your kind comments. Chris

June at Pena Blanca

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week from June 17th. The property is amazing with wonderful views to the mountains north and east and down to the sea in the south. We made the most of the time, catering in four nights out of seven which isn't difficult with the great kitchens in and outside the house. We walked up to Comares, had a day in Malaga and a day on the beach at Torre Del Mar - all excellent. Table Mountain bar and restaurant in Los Ventorros is a local favourite and very welcoming and the bar in the square in Comares has a sunny terrace. So, luxurious accommodation, great views, great weather and total peace and quiet - just what we need, so we will definitely be going back.

Beautiful, peaceful retreat, jaw dropping views.

  • 5 of 5

Where to start, the pictures do not really do justice to this wonderful villa. The interior (& exterior) space is so generous and well equipped. I believe that some of the simple things, attention to detail, do make a difference to a holiday. Sharp knives, a kettle, lovely pans & cutlery, crockery. I would love to go on & on. The welcome pack again so very thoughtful and generous.

Every bathroom, again roomy and beautifully clean, lovely hand soap and copious loo rolls and cleaning products. These things may seem trivial to some but I believe they show a generosity not often seen in some holiday rentals. Lovely comfy, kingsize bed and plenty of hanging space for clothes.

We experienced very good communication from Chris the owner, and Carl who manages Pena Blanca. We received lots of very useful, practical advice, Carl's local knowledge is vast and helpful.

One of the key aspects for us was the close proximity to the village Comares, but the unique privacy the villa offers. We had some lovely local walks which are well signed and colour coded. The birds around the villa are a delight, watching the house martins and swallows swooping across the pool were such a pleasure. I began to look out for the local shepherd passing daily with his large herd. A very short walk away is the famous area for rock climbing, amazing and dramatic.

Eating in the village is basic fare, if you go with an open mind there is less chance for disappointment. All the food we had was tasty and very inexpensive.

We went to Table Mountain a few times, about 10 mins drive away. We experienced lovely service and good consistent meals. The outside kitchen at Pena Blanca is so fab, why go out?

Going to Cordoba for the May patio festival was very special, a fair distance but well worth it. We had days out in Nerja and Malaga which were good too, nice to return to the tranquility of Pena Blanca. Granada is not too far away if you have never been, a must.

Cool in the pool (only May) but we did go in. Great wi-fi too.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely home, sincere apologies for the breakage and all the extra work incurred. Your kindness and understanding are so appreciated.

Owner's Response: We have tried to make the villa feel home from home with attention to detail that is not always found in rental properties. It is most satisfying that this is appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to contribute a well written and informative review. Chris

Car: recommended

Peña Blanca is situated away from the madding crowds on the coast but conveniently located just a one hour drive from Malaga airport and 30 minutes by car to the sandy beach at Torre Del Mar on the coast. Walking distance from the beautiful village of Comares where all key amenities are found; restaurants, bars, shop, bank etc.

Peña Blanca Villa is a good base from which to explore the key cities and sights of Andalucia. Granada & the Alhambra Palace is a day trip. Antequerra and Torcal National Park are nearer still. Seville & Cordoba are less than 2 hours drive. Visit Nerja & the famous caves - 50 kms. Lake Viñuela, Marbella & Puerto Banus are on the tourist lists. Malaga city has plenty of culture with the Picasso museum, castle and many monuments. Great shopping and restaurants too!
