Villa Carlitos offers traditional country villa facilities near the stunning hilltop village of Comares on the edge of the Montes de Malaga Natural Park - one hour from Malaga. Bob and Alba Lucia have spent 4 years renovating their property in the small hamlet of Los Ventorros. From the beginning the idea was to use as many recycled or second hand materials as possible. All the doors, for example, have come from 'junk yards' (although you wouldn’t believe it when you see the renovated results) and practically all the furniture is second hand and restored. The result is that everything contributes to the cosy, 'rustic' style that we wanted to create. We enjoy the cosiness of evenings in front of the fire and the refreshingly cool areas of the shady patios under the vines in the summer. Villa Carlitos is for people who appreciate the countryside and value the old instead of the new. If you are amongst these and you want to see a part of 'real' Spain, you will probably enjoy Villa Carlitos as much as we do. The property is spacious and constructed on 3 levels with large outside terraces offering both sunny and shaded aspects. The views across open countryside from both the front and rear terraces are beautiful. Most attractive are the traditional Andalucian features, including beams, heavy wooden doors and window shutters. The log fireplace is a cosy feature where we enjoy dinners with friends around the large dining room table and the small but nice pool is perfect in summer when we can enjoy late dinners on the back patio, with the silhouettes of the mountains as a backdrop and the chirping of the cicardas to keep us company.
Furnished in rustic style with modern comforts, the villa will appeal to anyone wishing to enjoy a traditional Spanish house in a convenient village countryside location.
The welcoming bar/restaurant and village shop is just a few metres walk and there is ample free parking right outside the villa. Comares hilltop village, with views to the Mediterranean coast in the distance, has attractive narrow streets and good facilities ..
