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.

                                                                                                      We had a lovely 9 days spent with our 2 yr old daughter as this property whilst being 26 weeks pregnant. The views are absolutely stunning and it is a beautiful place to relax once our daughter had gone to bed. Keeping a toddler entertained was not the easiest thing despite taking as much as we could with us, including a potty! We wouldn't have been without the pool. It was a godsend despite being rather chilly the first few days it heated up quickly. A car is essential to get even basic essentials but the nearest convenience store is relatively close by. The property is a good 30-40 minute drive away from Torre del Mar where all the beaches, large supermarkets, shops, waterparks etc are. Casa Mendoza is really well equipped and a lovely villa. the outside seating looking at the views is stunning. We found it a struggle to keep our daughter entertained at times and the distance from facilities/the coast was probably a little too far for us. This would definitely have been a 5* review had we been travelling without a toddler. Nick and Jo were extremely helpful with great communication prior to our stay. David was on hand and really helpful, without being intrusive. Many thanks for a lovely holiday. We will probably return in the future once our daughter is a bit older!

We loved the variety of places to relax in the sun and shade; the large outdoor dining table, swimming pool, hammock and table tennis as well as many nooks and crannies to sit in. It is so comfortable and peaceful; the house is surrounded by beautiful countryside and the view is breathtaking and changes with the light at different times of day. We felt like we were in a sanctuary; a perfect retreat. Jon and Esther were so helpful and friendly; they answered all of our questions and told us about everything going on in the area. We couldn't have asked for more. Ages ranged from 16 to 66 and we all loved it. Helen, Jimmy, Amanda, Fred and Mimi
