Guestbook comments from the owner

The Spanish themed bar, the large pool, the views, WiFi, pool table. ping pong, lots of space to chill out, within walking distance of two good bar / restaurants and a 5 minute drive up to the lovely unspoiled village of Comares along with ease of booking with Samantha the owner and John who looks after the villa he will be there to greet you and will come early mornings during the week to do the pool so unless you need him he will not disturb you.

Beautiful and amazing relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this villa a few times now, and we are back for our honeymoon in september!

The scenery and landscape is amazing!

The villa is huge with so many modern day delights it makes this villa fully equip for anything.

The pool is the biggest ive seen at any villa its one of the reasons we keep coming back. The contact from samantha the owner is great she always replies to emails with any queries or questions you have. The villa has a massive double with ensuite and a.double.bedroom which all lead out to a beautiful balcony which was sat out most mornings watching the sunrise. Theres 2 twins rooms aswell. Never used the bbq area much this time round but will again. Sat at the bar picanti while the kids poured us a juice pretending to work there haha

The sofa also pulls out to a double pullout bed too.

Its about half an hour walk up hill to shops but there is a small shop and restaurant 5 to 10mins walk down hill its like an aladdins cave it has bread and juice to jewellry to toys and covers and ornaments everythin in it!

The villa is a suntrap but plenty areas for shade.for those who dont like to be roasted too much.

Local taxi service is excellent his prices are so cheap i thought id heard wrong first time he saved us a fortune and will wait for u going back to villa if your going food shopping so he can help you!

The villa is immaculate and clean and has a pool table which my family are never off of playing tournaments etc. One thing we missed was wifi to contact other family members via whatsapp and facebook but Samantha the owner is working on this.

Can rate this villa highly enough. 5stars

A fantastic family villa in a great setting.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, directions to the property were excellent - a big help as we had a very late arrival. The Villa exceeded our expectations - it was clean, spacious and perfect for us and our three young children. We all loved the pool (even if a tiny bit cold as it was only May). We had a trip to the beach but the kids had no interest as they had all they wanted at the villa.

John the greeter hit exactly the right tone in terms of customer service and we've already recommended the property to friends and family.

The area is stunning - particularly Comares - and it's a pleasure to feel like you're actually in a very different place (particularly the price of wine and beer!). Hasta la próxima vez!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review on Villa Amarilla. It is really important to try and give as much information as is possible with directions especially with any new works that have been done to motorways or roads so we do try to update as much as possible for our guest's. Our priority is providing guests with what they need while away from home, including having direct contact with our greeter who will always do their utmost to give you as our guest any information and help where needed during your stay. Each year we are trying to add more facilities for families with children where needed to help parents enjoy their villa holiday so all the family get a little time to relax, whilst still keeping the villa suitable for those guests that do not have families. Comares is beautiful and indeed almost untouched in away from all the hussle and bussle of the tourist areas while being in easy reach of shopping trips, day trips, beach and weekly markets. Thank you for giving us your insight and thoughts of your stay. Muchas Gracias! Samantha.

Time to Relax in Comares's Little Secret

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this villa for what is now probably the last 10 years and it still looks as as fresh and lovely as when we first arrived. Everything you want in a holiday villa is here for the family. Modern kitchen, bathrooms x 3 and comfortable furnishings. The outside is very pretty with different areas to enjoy, either relaxing next to the pool, or playing ping pong in another area, or enjoying the barbecue and outside bar with friends or family in the evening in the beautiful starred sky. It has the most wonderful panoramic unobstructed views of the Andalucian mountains and yet is only a couple of minutes drive away from a friendly local tapas bar and good restaurant. In the morning you can hear the cock crow in the distance and the ringing of the goats bells as they come across the mountain. Its time to breathe and know you are on holiday. If you want a relaxing fun family time away from the crowds then you will enjoy this secret gem of a villa!

Perfect in every way and can't wait for next time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family holiday and we couldn't have done better if we had tried! We had a week of fun, relaxation and lots of games! The position of the villa is just breathtaking, couldn't get enough of the views! The children were in and out of the pool the whole time, no squabbling (which is a feat in itself!) playing pool or even playing ping pong....not once was the 'bored' word mentioned! The villa had everything and more that we needed, better than home from home, Samantha has just thought of everything. If you like tranquil, quiet, beautiful locations then don't hesitate to book Villa Amarilla, we can't wait to book up again.

"Comares is steeped in history. There's a walking route in the village with ceramic footprint..."

From the Owner

Our land was purchased by my Husband and I with the intention of building (together) our very own Spanish villa in this beautiful unspoiled part of Spain. We spent just under a year lovingly building our villa, it took lots of blood, sweat, tears and a fantastic marriage and friendship to make Villa Amarilla what it is today. My husband has been building for over 30 years and I have spent a good 20 years learning the trade whether I wanted to or not, as it happens I love it! We pride ourselves on keeping the villa to a high standard thus making sure all our guests have the same experience during their stay at Villa Amarilla.
