Village Life - Comares: Comares is a very pretty pueblo blanco in a dramatic location. Unchanged, with views in every direction, the narrow streets turn steeply away from the main Plaza with its welcoming bar. Life is unhurried here. A bank with cash machine, good local shop with fresh produce, chemists, tobacconists and 6 bar/restaurants with local dishes & tapas will make your holiday at Villa Romo a convenient place to stay.

Town & Beach Facilities: Velez Malaga is a large market town where you will find all your shopping requirements including: Modern Shopping centre, Cinemar complex, hospital, water park, bowling centre and specialist shops.

Torre Del Mar is the nearest Mediterranean Beach resort. Over 2 kms of wide sandy beaches dotted with beach bars specialising in fish & seafood. Along the promenade you will find entertainment for all ages. Rent a bike or go horse riding on the beach nearby. At Caleta de Velez, the local fishing port and marina 5 mins drive East, there are several excellent eateries next to the beach & boats.

Benamargossa, approx 20 mins from Villa Romo, has a 24 hour emergency medical centre.

Exploring Andalucia: Villa Romo is the perfect rural location from which to visit the key sights of Andalucia:

Malaga City, with castle & hilltop fort, Picasso museum, great shopping and tapas bars is 1 hour.

Granada & Alhambra Palace ( a must see!) is around 90 mins drive. Book in advance online/at local BBVA bank.

Seville & Cordoba are a little further on good roads - but worth the effort.

Antequerra is less than 1 hour and full of attractive buildings and monuments. Torcal National Park is nearby.

Nerja, with famous caves and good sandy beaches, takes 1 hour by car...............And if you want to sample the high life, Marbella & Puerto Banus is a fun day trip!

About Carl cullimore

We, Carl and Maria Cullimore, came to Comares in 1999 with the idea of buying a holiday home…and we are still here!

We continue to be thrilled by the views and beautiful, colourful landscape of Andalusia. The white washed village of Comares is both unique and unspoiled yet only an hour from Malaga. The perfect rural base to relax and explore.

La Paz, our finca meaning “peace” was renovated and a swimming pool was built on the hillside. We converted part of the farmhouse to a self contained studio overlooking the pool and our holiday rentals idea became a reality when we welcomed our first guests in 2002.

Our next project was Villa Romo, spacious accommodation with pool and popular with families. Friends owning properties locally and wishing to rent their villas for holidays have entrusted us with the keys and management responsibilities.

We are proud to showcase a small, quality selection of individual villas, beach houses, apartments and even a seaside Fisherman’s Cottage. We provide a professional, bespoke service which can include the rental marketing and maintenance of holiday properties in the Axarquia region of Andalusia.

please visit our website: www.andalusianrentals.com

Why Carl cullimore chose Comares

Because it is totally private with amazing far reaching views. It is a home from home.

It offers space but retains a cozy feel. Very good lay out all on one level. Good base to explore areas of interest.

Amazing second visit

  • 4 of 5

In September 2014 myself and my partner returned to Villa Roma for the second time. We don't often go back to the same place twice as there are so many beautiful places in the world but we have yet to find anywhere as perfect as Villa Roma. The Villa is amazing especially the pool and the outside area. The weather was so beautiful we hardly spent any time inside. Lazy days spent in the pool and balmy evenings, with outside dining washed down with a bottle of wine or a few beers, (thanks to Carl and Maria for getting the beers in!) This place is not for you if you want an action packed holiday but will be perfect if you want a lazy week in the sun with nothing to do except look at the beautiful views and cool off in the pool. We found our little piece of heaven and will be returning soon, hopefully in 2015!

Owner's Response: Having let Villa Romo since 2006 we find there are usually 2 reasons why most guests find the villa appealing. Either they are seeking a chill out zone in which to recharge their batteries or they plan a more active holiday and wish to tour the key sights of Andalusia; These happy visitors fit into the former category! And I totally agree.....if you want action packed - go to Benidorm! Thanks Della for taking the time to write and would be great to see you for a 3rd time next year! Carl

I brilliant set up.

We found the accommodation massive with everything we needed to make our holiday very relaxed and stress free. A real feeling of being away from it all. We would return.

Stunning Property and Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place. Excellent villa with everything you need to have a fantastic time. Children loved it. Great clean pool. The place is just perfect. We will definitely come back to the villa to enjoy it again. The owners were lovely and caring. The villa was very clean and the kitchen is a paradise for those ones who love cooking. We will definitely recommend this property to anyone who would like to spend some time away from it all.

Owner's Response: 2 couples with 4 children between them enjoying 10 nights at Villa Romo in October....Their review says much more than my advertising ever can. We really hope they do visit us again! Thanks y hasta pronto? Carl

Spacious, well appointed and great views

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at Villa Romo at the end of September 2013. It met all our initial requirements - up in the hills, private and with a pool and barbecue. The added bonus for us was the size of the villa itself - it is suitable for extended families or groups, and there were only three of us! We wanted for nothing in terms of kitchen equipment, evening entertainment and outdoor facilities, and the weather was perfect for us as well.

The owners were very friendly and accomodating and having stayed at a few different villas in Andalucia and on the Costa Blanca, we also feel that Villa Romo offers excellent value for money.

We would recommend Villa Romo to anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday and is not too worried about visiting bars and restaurants in the evenings (we came with our three year old with another on the way).

Owner's Response: Its very rewarding that Max and his young and growing family found what they were looking for at Villa Romo. A private location and pool that is not overlooked is top of the wish list for many of our guests. The kitchen facilities are excellent for up to 10 persons and so encourage self catering...although for those who do like to eat out, there are 2 good bar/restaurants, one traditional and one International, just 4 kms away in Los Ventorros. Thanks Max.

Wow wow wow, pretty much sums up Villa Romo!

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks here. There was 9 in our group 4 adults and 5 children.

All of us were totally in love with our paradise in the mountains.

The roads to Villa Romo are yes a little daunting at first, but you soon get used to all the twist and turns and start to enjoy it!!

We had many a mystery tour on these fun roads and always ended up in a beautifull traditional little bar/ cafe with cold beer and sangria waiting!!!

The villa it self is what we decided to call paradise! It was perfect in every way, had everything you would need and want for a very comfortable stay.

Carl and Maria were fabulous, very helpful and friendly.

We spent most nights sitting out eating a BBQ and watching the brightest stars, it really is heaven.

The pool was a balmy 29 deg for our entire stay and temperatures sored into high 30s - low 40s so the pool was glorious.

Our overall holiday with our best friends was everything we wanted it to be.

It's a beautifull peaceful haven away from all hustle and bustle of high rise resorts. You look out and all you see are mountains, it's perfect. No noise other than the odd dog bark, the crickets fanning themselves and the humming of a bee. If a relaxing chilled out holiday is what your after Villa Romo is for you too!

To sum up its PERFECT :))))))

Owner's Response: From Kirsty´s kind words and guestbook comments we think they all enjoyed a great holiday at Villa Romo! 2 couples with their children sharing the villa is quite typical and the villa is very comfortable for up to 10 persons without using the sofabed in the lounge. It works well for 3 or 4 couples sharing too.........And we sometimes have a group of friends enjoying the sunshine and pool. Its not the place if you expect busy nightlife on the door step though! Space, great views and peace and quiet on the pool terrace are the order of the day. With BBQ s and star gazing popular activities also! Thanks Kirsty and we hope to see you all again. Carl

Just returned from Villa Romo and we all had a great time!

The villa is located up in the hills about an hour from Malaga airport and a car is essential.

We had late flights so arrived late but the directions provided made the journey relatively easy.

The first thing to state is this is not the place for you if you want a lively holiday. Carl makes this point clearly on his website and was exactly what we expected and wanted.

There is not really anywhere you can walk to in terms of bars of shops with Comares being about 7km away. The roads are not great but you quickly get used to them!

We traveled as a mixed group of friends and had a great time.

The Villa itself enjoys an isolated position in the hills and is lovely. A steep drive leads up to a pool area with plenty of loungers and chairs around. There are 2 tables for al fresco dining and a huge barbeque which we used extensively. The kitchen is large and has everything you could possible need.

The Villa is finished and furnished to a very high standard and was extremely comfortable for us.

Carl made us feel very welcome and provided lots of good advice and tips about the area.

Villa Romo is perfect for large groups who want a quiet, villa based holiday and would be good for kids. If you want easy access to bars, clubs and shops, this is probably not right for you but we loved it.

Villa Romo is set in a rural Axarquia, a hilly region 40 minutes drive from the coast and 10 minutes from Comares village. Comares is one of the highest villages in the Axarquia, approx 800 metres above sea level, with dramatic views all the way to the Mediterranean, some 25 kms distant. Mostly unchanged by modern living on the coast, Inland Axarquia is a quiet area of hills and windy roads; the views are fantastic! This is the place to unwind and go with the slower pace of life. Malaga city and airport is a 1 hour drive - max. Granada airport is around 80 mins and the Alhambra Palace 10 mins further. Villa Romo is centrally located for touring Andalucia; Seville, Cordoba and Antequerra are easily reached by good roads. Nerja, with famous caves and good beaches, is 1 hour by car.

Villa Romo is accessed directly from a minor country road onto a private driveway. Ample off road parking for 4 cars/caravan/camper - please ask.
