About the property

Spacious accommodation including 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps up to 6.

Casa Guisante de Olor is a new two bedroom villa overlooking citrus and avocado groves, offering breathtaking views from its elevated position on the edge of the Sierra de Tejeda national park. It has been beautifully furnished and has a private pool. Situated below one of Andalucia's most picturesque and unspoilt white hill top villages Comares, which is a fascinating and interesting place to explore. Your spacious accommodation is set on two levels. On the upper level there are two beautiful bedrooms both with en-suite Bathrooms, fitted wardrobes ceiling fans and French windows leading on to an impressive terrace with amazing views across to the see and mountains. Downstairs there is a lounge/diner with air conditioning, which is very well furnished, including a leather sofa bed, and there is a very well equipped kitchen and shower room. Leading from downstairs onto a covered porch are two set of french doors, this overlooks the swimming pool and also has the same fantastic views.

This is the place to come for a wonderful relaxing holiday, offering peace and tranquillity, yet the nearest beach is at Torre del Mar which is only 25mins drive away, the shops and markets of Velez Malaga, the nearest town are only 20mins away. In Comares which is just 5 mins away you will find plenty of bars and restaurants, but if you prefer to relax at the villa one evening, and do not want the hassle of cooking, the owner has a well deserved reputation for her excellent cuisine and will cater for you, with prior arrangement.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from this property-Last night in fact!

We had the most fabulous time. The villa was immaculate. Very well presented, and very well equipped. The views from the top balcony were just wonderful-With mountains, rolling countryside and sea- all encompassed in a sweep of the eye.

Sally and Paul were very nice people,friendly and helpful,but not too obtrusive.

I would definitely reccomend this property to friends and family.

We will definitely be returning!

Five star holiday villa near Comares

  • 5 of 5

A superbly equiped villa with stunning views all the way to the sea, with its own private pool. Perfect for either a quiet relaxing holiday or to explore a part of Spain that is not heavily visited. the mountains beyond Comares contain some splendid views and a number of small spannish villages. The property is not to far away from Malaga, Granada, or Antiquiera. we had a super holiday and our hosts Paul and Sally Welch were either happy to leave us in peace or to help if we need it.

Excellent place for peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I switched the engine of the hire car off the silence was the first thing we noticed. Paul showed us around the villa which truly is stunning and equiped to a high standard. We were looking for somewhere where we could properly relax which we did, tending to stay most of the time at the villa so did not venture too far away. There is a small village about a fifteen minute drive away that has a good supermarket and you are not too far from the a much larger complex if more variety is needed. The views are amazing.

Fantastic 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most relaxing two week holiday at this beautiful villa. The vistas are incredible and we spent most days just sitting and enjoying the breathtaking views with a few glasses of wine! The villa was one of the most comfortable and well equipped holiday homes we have been to in the past 20 years. There were some special extra touches such as pool towels being provided and a change of bed linen and towels halfway through our stay. This was like having hotel service! If you are looking for privacy, tranquility and somewhere to really 'switch off', then this place comes highly recommended. The owners Sally and Paul live nearby and are on hand for any information or help you need. The house has the best of both worlds, providing seclusion and peace in the hills but is also situated only 30 mins from the more lively town of Torre del Mar with beaches and restaurants. We loved it and hope to go back again soon and explore much more of this beautiful area of Spain.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 8 nights at this Villa 24th May-1st June 2017.My wife and I have stayed in many Villa's and carefully sellected this one as always due to us being very fussy travellers.

On arrival we were met by Sally and she showed us around the Villa. You can see immediately why every person has given this Villa 5* ratings.

The Villa was spotlessly clean. outside you are met with stunning panaramic views.

We spent many days just sitting in the shade relaxing on the patio. The main reason we booked this Villa was hoping due to its location we would have peace and quite.

In the evenings we heard nothing during the day you only hear the odd vehicle passing by.

My wife and I were totally gutted having to come back home it is safe to say we will be going back.

Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was tastefully decorated throughout, The layout internally and externally worked so well, loved the open plan kitchen/ diner and the patio doors leading out to spectacular outdoor pool and views . The winter sunshine was absolutely fantastic. Just an amazing wonderful holiday, and we shall definitely be returning.

Comares only 5 minutes away, is one of Andalucia's most picturesque and unspoilt white hill top villages, it is perched on one of the highest peaks in the Sierra de Tejeda national park and is known as the 'Balcon de Axarquia'. The village was of strategic importance during Moorish times and was one of the bases of Omar ben Hafsun. At the highest point of the village there are ruins of a Moorish castle. The village remains unspoilt and is a fascinating place to explore, with its spectacular views, and is ideal to pop to for an excellent lazy lunch.

Velez Malaga a 20 minute drive, is a typical Spanish Town with an old quarter dating back to Moorish occupation. It has an old castle La Fortaleza, of which a restored tower remains, set in pretty gardens. There are also two interesting old churches. The town has an excellent municipal market every day except Sunday, selling local produce, fish meat, vegetables and fruit. There is also a wide range of modern shops and supermarkets.
