About the property

Villa in Comares, Andalucia, Spain - Calm And Tranquil 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

Fantastically peaceful with terrific views

  • 4 of 5

All five of us had the most memorable two weeks in this beautifully set out, well equipped spacious Casa set in the most delightful surroundings with unparalleled views and the most beautiful birdsong all day. Everything about our holiday in the Casa went without hitch and we all thought that we would be very hard pushed to better it. Also there are many great places to eat within close proximity. "Ten out of ten". Amazing weather too.We were really sorry to have to leave! Michael, Cheryl, Len, Sarah and Anna

Wonderful Villa in Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the villa. Well equipped with wonderful views and only 20 mins walk to restaurants/bars. The villa is only 35mins from the beach at Torre del Mar and there are lots of good local walks close to the villa.

The villa conformably accommodates six people and I would highly recommend.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location. Total peace. Villa was super. Lots of space and cool. Walking around was beautiful. Cordoba and Ronda a couple of hours away. Villa was clean, modern and Nick has an eye for detail. If you want a break away in Southern Spain - book it. Best money we have spent on a villa.

Great Villa, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa set on hillside in the mountains, really great villa and location, very quiet and relaxing. Villa has all mod cons and is very clean and spacious, no problems at all. Comares is 2 mins away in car and is beautiful, has restaurants, pharmacy, small supermarket etc. Benamagosa 20 mins away by car for more shops, large supermarket etc. If you want peace and quiet in rural Spain, this is ideal. Ian, Bex, Jim,Jen,Jake & Leah xx
