About the property

Villa in Comares, Andalucia, Spain - Calm, Tranquil, Mountainside Retreat

Casa Mendoza nestles on the side of a mountain with glorious and stunning views. The house is designed to capture the summer mountain breezes, which, coupled with high vaulted ceilings gives a cool and airy living space.

The expansive lower terrace offers all day sun and a pool to cool off, while the covered upper terrace provides welcome shade, whilst still enjoying the magnificent scenery. By evening the upper terrace is in the perfect position to watch the sun set, while ambient lighting creates the perfect space to dine and relax in.

Inside, the living area offers all the benefits of open-plan living with a large modern kitchen, providing a perfect space for entertaining and relaxing. In winter, underfloor heating and the large wood burning stove make the house warm and cosy.

The house provides a perfect base for exploring Andalucia and is an ideal location for trekking, bird-watching, stargazing, horse riding and cycling alike. The coast is a 35 minute drive away where you can enjoy a plethora of beaches and amenities. There are also 3 National Parks and Nature Reserves within an hour’s drive of the property

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just enjoyed a most fantastic week of relaxation and tranquility. What a fabulous house and what stunning views! Russ, Dawn and Family, Meriden.

Thank you so much; it was a truly fantastic fortnight in the sun and the villa is simply wonderful. Everything from the obvious stunning location to all your work creating a fabulous villa and base for a holiday made it the best holiday I can remember. We loved the modern, airy and spacious feel to the villa but also its traditional and cosy charm as well. You really have made a wonderful house. Clare and Rob were fantastic to have around too in case we needed anything; they were both lovely and so helpful. We would certainly love to come back and stay another time. Emlyn and Katrina, London

If you want a break away from the world in idyllic peace, to sit by a

pool in the sun or on the comfy terrace sofas in the shade, admiring the glorious views this is the place for you. Look forward to another week soon. Julia, Manchester

A wonderfully relaxing holiday in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect week spent here with stunning views & excellent recommendations of where to shop & eat which made my holiday with my 3 young children all the easier. Words can not describe the stunning views of such a magnificent location. The villa itself was immaculate, well equipped and spacious. Have already enquired for summer 2018. Have yet to stay in a villa that could top this xx

Great quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our week at the Comares house. Wonderful views, good nearby walks, and the nearby village is charming. Don’t make the drive across the mountains at night, especially for the first time.

Beautiful views; lovely villa; excellent service - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The owners and their local representatives are lovely. David popped in to see us, and kept in touch via text message to ensure we had what we needed. One small issue with the water was sorted out immediately.

The house is lovely, with good bathrooms, comfortable beds and plenty of seating. The exterior seating is a fabulous place to spend some time enjoying the spectacular views. The kitchen is stocked with pretty much everything you need - the only thing we couldn't find was a bread knife. There were some welcome groceries left for us, which was nice. The villa was clean and tidy.

The location is somewhat out of the way, so a car is essential. The roads are typical mountain roads with plenty of twists and turns on the way. The last short stretch to the villa is an unpaved road with steep drop-offs. The driveway to the property is steep. None of this was a problem for me, but my wife found the driving a little stressful. I think this is just the price one pays for staying in such a beautiful location.

The pool is not heated, so bear that in mind. We couldn't really use it as it was too cold when we visited in April (in fairness, there had been a run of cold wet weather in the months prior, so that may not be indicative of your experience).

The Internet is not particularly fast and pretty variable in quality, but fine for checking email etc. I couldn't get any signal on my phone with EE as they only let you roam on certain networks. Other family members with O2 phones had strong signal roaming on the Movistar network.

The villa appears to have underfloor heating, but we couldn't get this working. It wasn't a problem as we used the fireplace and the supplied wood and this heated the house nicely in the evenings. There were also 2 gas fires and an electric radiator that could be moved and used where needed, so we were comfortable. The rooms have ceiling fans for those staying at hotter times of the year.

I would be more than happy to stay here again. We had a lovely time, and I can't overstate how wonderful it was to just sit and soak up the sunshine and those glorious views.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Villa is very spacious and kitchen is perfect for cooking with all utensils. It’s a very old school property with limited natural light but a perfect getaway. Only thing I could say if the pool had solar heating it would tick all my boxes. Within 30 mins of Lidl and beach. Very good communication throughout the stay and we had everything ready including a few creature comforts on arrival. Thanks

Beautiful, deeply relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Our two year olds loved the outside space - especially the pool and the loungers - and slept so well in the deeply quiet, cool, dark bedrooms. Lovely base.

We're happy to hear that the children slept so well - always a relief with little ones in a new place. We'd love to welcome you back anytime. Thank you, Jo

Fantastic views - great location

  • 5 of 5

Fab week away from it all at Casa Mendoza. 1st week of October and the weather was great although for the first couple of days we had cool, overcast mornings but every afternoon was lovely and warm even reaching 30c at the end of the week. Great outdoor terrace and sofas afforded respite from the heat whilst soaking up the amazing scenery. Spacious interior and good sized kitchen met all our needs.

A great place to relax away from the rigours of the wider world.
