Make a holiday rental apartment or accommodation in Comares, Spain your home away from home

Comares is a beautiful Andalucian whitewashed village (pueblo blanco) perched high in the mountains of Malaga Province, Spain. Comares is actually one of the highest altitude pueblo blancos in the whole of Spain, with spectacular views for many miles in every direction from its position on a rocky crag. The village is breath-takingly beautiful, and to date, is still far from the beaten paths of tourists, allowing it to retain its peaceful, undeniably Andalucian atmosphere which makes Comares villas such a complete delight to visit.

Things to do on holiday in Comares, Spain

Walking through the cobbled streets of the village is a delight. Not only is there a timeless, peaceful atmosphere throughout, but you can take a sub-conscious history lesson as you walk. The coloured ceramic tiles which decorate the village tell the story of Comares’ place in Spanish history since the 3rd century BC. The remaining ruins of the huge Moors fortress of Comares tells a little of the story itself, but there is little remaining.

There are a handful of fantastic bars in Comares, a couple of exceptional restaurants and many doorstep stalls selling local wine, raisins, almonds, olives, honey and cheese. The local produce is mouth watering, and the little doorstep shops make cooking in a self catering Comares villa or apartment an absolute delight. During the St Hilaire de Poitiers festival from the 25th – 27th August each year, Comares springs into life, transforming form a sleepy, sun-drenched village to become a haven of activity, music, dance and food.

Comares lies just outside the Malaga Mountains Nature Park, a wonderful area of mountains, river valleys and thick forests awash with wildlife. The park is a fantastic place to walk and climb, surrounded by some of the finest views to be found across Andalucia, and in amongst the indigenous wildlife of the region.

Places to visit on holiday in Comares, Spain

Comares is located 25km inland from the beaches of Torre del Mar, and just 35km from Malaga. These are very popular beach resorts, offering stunning expanses of soft sand, endless water sports facilities, evening entertainment and excellent restaurants, as well as a surprising number of important historical monuments, especially in the old city of Malaga. If the peace, tranquillity and beauty of taking a holiday home in Comares get too much, the fast pace of beach life is only a short drive away.

Weather in Comares, Spain

The weather is very reliable in this part of Spain. You can almost guarantee a week of stunning sunshine and midday temperatures in the high 30’s (°C) during June, July and August, and you would be very unlucky to get a week of bad weather at any time between April and October. Even in winter, monthly temperatures average almost 15˚C, meaning that there is never a bad time to be relaxing in a Comares holiday rental villa.

Travel to Comares, Spain

You can be happily settled into a self catering Comares property rental within an hour of leaving Malaga Airport (AGP), although there are a couple of terrifying hair-pins to tackle on route from the airport. Malaga Airport receives a huge range of flights from Britain, whether you are taking a budget, ‘no frills’ airline or a smarter, more luxurious flight.

It had everything we needed for the kids…pool, games, books and TV, and very spacious. Spent lots of time just unwinding on the terrace in the peace and quiet of the most amazing countryside. This is the real Spain! Great beds - lovely and comfortable and the villa very clean. Loved all the Spanish touches – arches and window shutters etc. We went out a lot to Comares and Los Ventorros to eat, though there is a large BBQ on the terrace and the kitchen has all mod cons. Spent a few days down on the coast, with the kids enjoying the sea. Fabulous drive down, through the avocado and lemon groves. Can’t wait to come back. Will do more next time as there is loads to see and do (there is a big guest pack with loads of info about the area and ideas for trips out). Or maybe we will just chill and enjoy the pool!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Situated in the foothills above Malaga. About an hour from the airport. You will need satnav to get there as you will be taking a mountain road – the views are stunning. The property is easy to find and is in a small hamlet below the town of Comares itself. There are lots of bedrooms and this house would suit two or even three families with children. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use. There are loads of bathrooms with good showers and the water is always hot. There is a games room with a good table tennis table. If you want to play snooker you can do so at a local bar. The pool is small and we did not use it as temperatures in January are too cool. However we did sit outside for breakfast on several occasions. What a treat to be able to sit outside on a January morning and enjoy the winter sunshine! ( in the summer the position of this villa in the foothills above Malaga will mean the nights will be cooler and you will be able to sleep better) Bob and Alba are easy to deal with. Bob is English and has worked in Spain for 20 years. Alba is Colombian and is practical and a fluent English speaker. We had open fires every evening and there was a good supply of firewood at the back of the property which made this possible. You will probably want to visit Malaga. In January there are light shows at 6:30 PM every evening in central Malaga. Go early in the afternoon as the city becomes clogged up at about six in January because of this light show.Visit the Picasso museum or for a more relaxed day go to the botanical Gardens. The most fantastic mature trees and a wisteria walk which would be lovely in May/June . There is always the beach or a stroll along the paseo marítima. The more adventurous should go to Granada for a day. The Alambra palace is stunning and the generalife gardens are amazing! Go and find the staircase where a stream cascades down the balustrades. Such a visit will enable you to understand the importance the Moors played in Spain during centuries. Comares, of course, with its restored architecture is also indicative of Spain's Moorish history. It is a lovely town to stroll around and the remains of the old Moorish fort can still be seen. The views from the main square over the foothills are stunning. While staying at Villa Carlitos we did a long walk along the dried out riverbed. There was lavender in flower and honey bees working the wildflowers. I wish I had taken some binoculars.
