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 love the location, the breath-taking views, and the lovely outdoors area which is fabulous for sunbathing, swimming, and barbecuing. Jose, the property manager, is really friendly and helpful and always on hand if you need anything. We stayed as a group of 8 adults last year and 6 this year (we didn't use the annexe which is not air-conditioned). For us, this was the perfect number of people for this property. There are lots of interesting places to go in the area. Comares itself is a pretty town with a fantastic setting, and has a very friendly and useful little supermarket. The beach at Torre del Mar is only 40 mins away, and the fantastic city of Malaga less than an hour. The inland regions are beautiful too, such as the Embalse de Vinuela (lake) and the dramatic Zafarraya Pass. Antequera and Alhama de Granada are worth a visit. We also walked up to the top of the nearby 'La Mesa' mountain to see the ruins of a Moorish village. Best of all, we liked eating out in the 'party hamlet' of Los Ventorros (a short walk away - there always seemed to be something going on!) and just sitting on the terrace, watching the light change over the mountains and listening to the gentle clanking of the goat bells. A truly relaxing holiday in a very special place.

We went away for a peaceful, relaxing break away from the stresses of life and this place delivered on everything. Lorraine and Nigel were very welcoming , as were their 6 lovely dogs ! The studio had everything we needed and the outdoor space was fab. The pool was very welcome , especially on the very hot days and we enjoyed a refreshing evening swim with the pool lights on (once we discovered them ). We spent most days lazing round the pool but did venture out to Benamargosa to do our food shopping which just a short drive away. We also enjoyed a lovely meal out at the local bar Ortega ( a 5 min drive) with Lorraine and Nigel. All in all, highly recommended, especially for those wanting some R & R. Thanks to Lorraine and Nigel for being such great hosts

A perfect situation to relax and get away from the stress of everyday life. We spent a week here in October 2015, pottering in the garden, reading on the patio and sunbathing on the roof terrace. Shops and restaurants are within 10 mins by car either in Ventoros or in the beautiful mountaintop village of Comares.
