Villa Set In Spectacular Mountainside Location With Private Pool



Updated: 04-Nov-2016
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

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

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

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful two weeks at Casa Mendoza which had everything we needed and was kept in extremely good order. The setting was stunning and very peaceful which is just what we wanted and we had a lazy couple of weeks by the pool which our 5 children loved.

Nick was extremely helpful before our stay and David who manages the property for him couldn't have been more helpful and friendly while we were there - a real asset.

We are hoping to return next year and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.

NB - Nervous drivers may find the mountain roads a bit dicey at times!

Looking forward to the fabulous sunsets from the terrace next year already!

Wonderful villa in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Villa has a fantastic view over the valley and towards the mountains. Having dinner watching the sun setting was just magical.

Villa clean and well maintained and had everything we needed for our holiday. Had a fabulous outside area to sit on when the sun got too much.

Nick the owner was great, very helpful and friendly and David the manager was helpful and accommodating.

You can walk to Comares (1.5km) which has a small local supermarket, bank and some bars. The other village Los Ventorros has a very nice restaurant (Table Mountain) which I would recommend.

Córdoba Is within driving distance to visit and certainly very pretty.

Villa Mendoza is a great place to relax and enjoy the sunshine and fantastic views.

Spectacular villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is amazing! We were very anxious to see if reality could live up to the pictures.

Thankfully it could and even exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful and it very nice condition and the view is breathtaking.

Nick, the owner, was super flexible during the booking process, and made us feel very secure and welcome.

David the manager was incredibly serviceminded, he and his wife dropped by the day after our arrival and really made us feel welcome. They had answers to all our questions and thanks to their network of contacts they helped us arrange both horseback riding on a nearby mountain and a massage in the villa.

It is a 30 min drive to velez Malaga which has both shopping and nearby beaches. Malaga and Nerja are also a short drive away.

We would definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back!

Only negative was that it was unbelievably hot during our stay in early July and we missed having a/c.
