About Cheryl Judge

Joe and Cheryl are originally from the UK (London and Newcastle) and have lived in Spain for 16 years with their daughters Holly and Louisa.

Joe is a lighting designer and Cheryl a music teacher.

They lived in Casa Holly as a family for 4 years before deciding to move nearer to the coast to be closer to work.

Why Cheryl Judge chose Comares

Joe and Cheryl designed and built Casa Holly. They had some help with the impressive vaulted roof and saw the project as a labour of love. In total from start to finish, it took approximately 3 years to build working almost every weekend.

They love the area because of its beauty and tranquillity. The house is far enough from the costa del sol holiday scene but close enough to visit should the need arise.

What makes this villa unique

The house is modern and functions extremely well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Perfect retreat"

"Totally amazing, a beautiful villa, best holiday to date!"

“Beautiful Villa nestled in the Hills away from it all”

We spent a great week at Casa Holly, the Villa was excellent and we were spoilt for choice between dips in the pool and the Hot tub. The setting is lovely, and once you have mastered the art of getting from the villa along the

windy lanes back to the main road this part of Andalucia is worth exploring. We would recommend.

Peaceful and stunning

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Casa Holly. The house is lovely with everything you could possibly need. The surroundings are beautiful from every direction (our dog loved it). Roads to get to the house are good with only a very very short dirt track and good directions were given by the owner who was very helpful with our questions too. I can't recommend Casa Holly enough, we'll definitely be back soon. Thank you Cheryl for everything x

Lovely secluded villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay at casa holly, beautifully positioned in the hill side, relaxing stay, clean and tidy and had everything you need for a perfect break, the hot tub was perfect for relaxing on an evening watching the sun go down. Driving to the villa had some lovely country views, we missed the turn off called Cheryl the owner who gave us some instructions to get there, read the instructions carefully when she sends them, very easy to find in the end. Loved our stay and hopefully be back soon.

Beautiful relaxing country stay!!

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a villa for our winter break casa holly topped all the others in the area. It was ideal for us as we have family in the area and the added bonus of a hot tub was a lovely treat for the evenings. Cheryl was very accommodating and on hand for any questions or help we needed. It was very easy to find with Cheryl directions. With the lovely views and great interior it was all we could have asked for.I would defiantly recommend this villa for any one looking to stay in this area of andalucia as it is only a short drive to the coast and local amenities or if you just want some piece and quiet. Overall we was extremely happy with our stay and look forward to staying there again in the future. Thanks so much Cheryl & Joe x
