About the property

House in Comares - Spectacular Location With Panoramic Views

Casa del Tajo - 'The House on the Cliff' occupies a unique position, overlooking the spectacular mountain scenery of Andalucia. It is close to the village swimming pool (July/Aug) and only a short walk from the centre of the picturesque mountain village of Comares, which stands 700m above sea level .With breathtaking views from the house you can survey the mules and goats being taken down the steep track that winds below the cliff. Look out for kestrels, that nest on the rock beneath you. Comares, with narrow,cobbled streets,is steeped in history and can be traced back to the 3rd Century BC. Today there are bars, restaurants, banks & a small supermarket. The pace of life is slow and in keeping with the past. The house consists of 5 bedrooms,4 doubles and 1single.

(The bedroom in the dome is self contained with its own kitchenette,living room and shower room with a double bed settee in the living room) 3 bathrooms ,one with bath,two with shower cubicles ,kitchen / diner ,living room /diner. The house is on several different levels with fairly steep stairs inside and steps outside, not really suitable for very small children but fine for slightly older ones.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as a group of 4 adults in October. On arrival, the villa is just as stunning as the pictures.Lovely outdoor terraces and incredible views. The plunge pool is bigger than it looks in the photos but, being October, we didn't brave a dip. The only thing lacking was a couple of sun-loungers on the downstairs terrace - but perhaps these had simply been put away, being later in the year. Inside, it the house is well equipped with everything you'd need and spotlessly clean. The welcome pack was much appreciated as we arrived late at night. Yes, there are a lot of stairs and steps throughout and it's a bit like a rabbit warren in places, but this just adds to the character and charm. There is a self-contained apartment at the top of the house and an amazing roof terrace. Comares itself is a beautiful, very traditional village and easy to walk into from the villa. The local shop, although small, has all the basics you might want and it's lovely to sit in the square and just watch the world go by. For the adventurous, there's rock climbing and zip-wiring nearby but, if you just want to chill, this is the perfect place. Communication was brilliant throughout, with clear directions and a friendly welcome from Clair, who met us and showed us around on arrival. This really is a very special place and would be fantastic for a break at any time of year. Thank you Kate and Tim for sharing your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: We are delighted our guests loved Casa del Tajo and hope they will return some time. The sun loungers for the downstairs terraces will be there for next season!

Beautiful house in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the whole house (i.e., the two main floors and the upstairs apartment) for the months of February and March (2018). We thoroughly enjoyed our two months in Comares. Mrs. Wright organized the rental agreement and sent us detailed instructions on how to reach Comares from the airport by car. Clair, who lives nearby, met us when we arrived and showed us where to park our rental car and explained the details of the house, which she had expertly cleaned just before our arrival. February was colder than normal but Claire ordered wood for us that we used in one of the two wood stoves. The house is very roomy, and the 5 bedrooms were more than adequate for the 6 people that occupied it most of the month of March. There are a lot of stairs and some low doorways but the house is charming. The kitchen is quite spacious, as is the living room on the second floor, and several of the bedrooms. The beds had good mattresses and the views from the living room and the three terraces were fantastic. The inhabitants of Comares were very friendly and patient with our poor Spanish. Many made a special point to say good-bye to us when we left. It is a very close and friendly community. Kate and Tim returned from a trip at the end of February and responded immediately to a couple of suggestions/requests we made. They also allowed us to stay past the check-out time on our last day. Although the month of February was quite cool, Comares is surrounded by almond orchards that were in bloom (white to pink flowers) all month. We always heard bees buzzing and birds chirping when we sat beside a very fragrant almond tree on the largest terrace, or when we walked on the many trails in the local area. All in all, it was a lovely house located in a lovely village in a very picturesque landscape.

Super house with lots of inside and outside space

  • 5 of 5

This house was superb and the village had everything we needed.

The views from the house were amazing and changed with the weather.

We had snow on the hills some days and then lovely blue skies and sunshine.

The locals were really friendly and the village shop had everything we needed so no mad dashes to the larger supermarkets!

We would like to return in the springtime as the almond trees were not in flower and a few degrees warmer would have been nice!!
