Overview

About the property

Villa near Comares, Andalucia - Peaceful Location On Outskirts Of National Park

This country Villa is situated in an olive grove, set in an acre of private land, which falls down the hillside to a little stream. Although very secluded, it is easily accessible from the road and there is ample parking. Wild boar still live on Mazmullar Mountain, which rises behind the Villa & many species of bird inhabit this area, including Golden Orioles, Bee Eaters, Nightingales, Wood rock thrushes, Red rumped swallows to name but a few. The ancient Moorish water systems nearby are well worth a visit. The nearest hamlet (5 mins drive) is Los Ventorros, situated on the road to Comares. It has a restaurant, bar and small shop, selling essentials. It is 10 minutes drive to the mountaintop village of Comares with narrow, winding cobbled streets, restaurants and even a small supermarket. This region with its spectacular views and mountain paths, is a favorite with walkers and bird watchers. The villa is family run with help at hand and many repeat bookings.

This is an "upside down" house. Downstairs there is a bedroom with king size bed and en suite bathroom with bath, over bath shower, basin and bidet. The family room has a king size and a single bed and the third bedroom has bunk beds and a single bed. There is also a family bathroom with bath, over bath shower, basin and bidet.

Upstairs is the large main living room with sliding doors leading onto a balcony. Also on this floor are the kitchen and dining room which leads onto an upper floor terrace. There is a double sofa bed in this room.

Outside on the ground floor is a very large terrace with barbecue and table tennis and the large pool with bar and lockable gates. Towards the top of the drive is a badminton court.

About Mrs S A Wright

We have lived in Comares since the 1980s and our children grew up here. We built this house and our property in the village of Comares ourselves. Apart from looking after our rental houses and guests we renovate older properties for longer term letting.

Why Mrs S A Wright chose Comares

This house and its situation in an olive grove make for a wonderfully peaceful and secluded holiday. Although within easy reach of major destinations, it is spacious enough to spend the whole time here enjoying the pool, table tennis and badminton if you just want a restful time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Lovely villa, beautiful scenery cannot fault anything...we'll miss it all - 'till next year we will be back!'

'We have had a fabulous week, the weather, the villa, the pool (best we have experienced), the bird life,...and most of all the peace and quiet. Thank you!'

Well equipped, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa was comfortable and had everything we needed and more! Nice to see that it had not been stripped of things like salt and pepper, washing up liquid, matches etc. as we have found in rented villas before. Clair met us as arranged and showed us around.

The pool was lovely and the bar area was a useful addition. (A couple of hornets by the pool but they were not a problem and just flew around for a bit and didn't bother us.)

Only downside when we were there was wasps which we know there is nothing anyone can do about. We were constantly driven indoors by them and had to keep doors and windows closed most of the time. Suggest taking precautions if allergic. We were unable to use the BBQ due to the wasps which got very agitated.

The El Molino restaurant was good and local. (The Table Mountain restaurant was closed when we were there but a sign showed it should be open again soon.)

We would be happy to come here again.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that our guests were happy with Casa la Vereda, apart from the wasps, which we are very sorry about .This year October has been considerably hotter than usual, which may have contributed. I'll look into ways of controlling them for the future

Great pool and bar

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in here in July/August 2017. The pool and bar were great and the villa comfortable. The local town of Comares is very pretty and we enjoyed a few days there. The roads up and down the mountain do (of course) have a lot of twists and turns.

vacance trés dé-paysante

  • 4 of 5

Nous venons tous juste de rentré de notre séjour en Andalousie

où nous étions partie en famille

nous avion réservé cette villa qui est situé a 5Km de COMARES

petit village montagnard typique où les habitant sont très accueillant et chaleureux

il ne faut juste pas avoir peur des pentes car elles sont raide

l'endroit est fabuleusement reposant

il n'y a aucun bruit ci ce n'est celui des cigales et des oiseaux qui chante

l'endroit est vraiment exceptionnel si vous voulez profité

en famille même grande ou entre amis sans trop bougé

car c'est je dirait le seul inconvénient de la situation géographique de la villa

il vous faudra environ 40min de voiture pour descendre de la montagne d'un côté ou de l'autre

nous n'avons pas pu profité pleinement de la piscine ou du terrain de tennis

car nous n'avons pa eut des températures très élevé,

mais celle-ci ne demandé cas nous accueillir la journée

ou même la soirée avec ces lumière bleu, elle est magnifique

voilà je vais m'arrêter là et vous laisserai découvrir le reste par vous même

bon séjour a tous
