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.

There were only six of us in our party but this villa could easily accommodate more. We had taken this villa primarily to relax and so the comfort of the beds was important to us and they were super. The owner had left a lovely selection of basics as we were arriving on a Sunday and local shops were closed. The pool was nicely maintained and easy to access for my 80+ year old mother-in-law. The peace and quiet we were treated to was sublime, one of the loudest things in the evening was the sound of the goat bells on the hillside opposite. We particularly liked the way we could sit either on the pool side of the villa with the various shaded areas when the sun was too strong or move through to the entrance side in the late afternoon to enjoy the sun as it set over the mountain side. Would defintely return should the opportunity arise.

We arrived late on a Saturday so the complimentary welcome pack was indeed welcome. The road can appear challenging but that a price worth paying for the location, tranquillity and views. The villa was very comfortable and we are breakfast on the terrace each morning. We travelled to the local town with a slightly larger supermarket and found everything we needed. We also visited Velez Malaga for both shopping and beaches. On our last day we went to nerja and a town called frigiliana which were both really interesting and worth a second visit. The villa was very well equipped and had all the facilities we required . Carl was very helpful and gave us some useful pointers for restaurants etc. We would definitely recommend this villa and will be back again.
