Village Life - Comares: Comares is a very pretty pueblo blanco in a dramatic location. Unchanged, with views in every direction, the narrow streets turn steeply away from the main Plaza with its welcoming bar. Life is unhurried here. A bank with cash machine, good local shop with fresh produce, chemists, tobacconists and 6 bar/restaurants with local dishes & tapas will make your holiday at Villa Romo a convenient place to stay.

Town & Beach Facilities: Velez Malaga is a large market town where you will find all your shopping requirements including: Modern Shopping centre, Cinemar complex, hospital, water park, bowling centre and specialist shops.

Torre Del Mar is the nearest Mediterranean Beach resort. Over 2 kms of wide sandy beaches dotted with beach bars specialising in fish & seafood. Along the promenade you will find entertainment for all ages. Rent a bike or go horse riding on the beach nearby. At Caleta de Velez, the local fishing port and marina 5 mins drive East, there are several excellent eateries next to the beach & boats.

Benamargossa, approx 20 mins from Villa Romo, has a 24 hour emergency medical centre.

Exploring Andalucia: Villa Romo is the perfect rural location from which to visit the key sights of Andalucia:

Malaga City, with castle & hilltop fort, Picasso museum, great shopping and tapas bars is 1 hour.

Granada & Alhambra Palace ( a must see!) is around 90 mins drive. Book in advance online/at local BBVA bank.

Seville & Cordoba are a little further on good roads - but worth the effort.

Antequerra is less than 1 hour and full of attractive buildings and monuments. Torcal National Park is nearby.

Nerja, with famous caves and good sandy beaches, takes 1 hour by car...............And if you want to sample the high life, Marbella & Puerto Banus is a fun day trip!

About Carl Cullimore

We, Carl and Maria Cullimore, came to Comares in 1999 with the idea of buying a holiday home…and we are still here!

We continue to be thrilled by the views and beautiful, colourful landscape of Andalusia. The white washed village of Comares is both unique and unspoiled yet only an hour from Malaga. The perfect rural base to relax and explore.

La Paz, our finca meaning “peace” was renovated and a swimming pool was built on the hillside. We converted part of the farmhouse to a self contained studio overlooking the pool and our holiday rentals idea became a reality when we welcomed our first guests in 2002.

Our next project was Villa Romo, spacious accommodation with pool and popular with families. Friends owning properties locally and wishing to rent their villas for holidays have entrusted us with the keys and management responsibilities.

We are proud to showcase a small, quality selection of individual villas, beach houses, apartments and even a seaside Fisherman’s Cottage. We provide a professional, bespoke service which can include the rental marketing and maintenance of holiday properties in the Axarquia region of Andalusia.

please visit our website: www.andalusianrentals.com

Why Carl Cullimore chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Because it is totally private with amazing far reaching views. It is a home from home.

It offers space but retains a cozy feel. Very good lay out all on one level. Good base to explore areas of interest.

What makes this villa unique

Not overlooked.

Private.

Not shared.

Big rooms.

Large kitchen.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We (two mature couples) rented Villa Romo for a week at the end of June and wished we could have stayed all summer! The villa is as described and more; it is very spacious and airy, extremely well equipped, comfortable beds and poolside furniture and everything clean and in good working order.

The location is great - very private, not overlooked, peaceful and with good views of the surrounding countryside. The nearest large village, Comares, has a compact but very well-stocked supermarket which fulfilled all our needs during our stay. The local people are very friendly and it is a good place to stop for a beer and a chat, there is even a helpful tourist information office at the gate to the village.

We very much enjoyed lunches at the Molino de los Abuelos restaurant in the village square, the food and wine are both excellent and the views from the terrace are lovely - as is the friendly owner who really know how to look after his guests.

Carl & Maria were a pleasure to deal with, making everything very easy and straightforward from our first enquiry to checking in.

Very highly recommended!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet Susan and her 3 companions on arrival..... For those guests looking for a quiet week in the countryside and some privacy....there really is no reason to go any further that hilltop Comares, a short drive away. Thank you for these kind works and leaving everything in good order on your departure. Carl & Maria.

Wow a real find!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week at Villa Romo! The actual location was perfect affording complete privacy and panoramic views of the breathtaking countryside and it surpassed our expectations. Carl gave us excellent directions and as we arrived you could feel the stress of our everyday busy lives in Wales evaporating in the peaceful and luxurious surroundings. The villa was well equipped and offered more than everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Carl and Maria were on hand to give us information about the area and we explored the visited many places on their recommendation. The local bar in Roma which which was extremely friendly and where several people arrived on horseback gave us an introduction to the local laid back atmosphere of Adalucia. The nearby restaurants were superb and offered great value for money as well as being authentically Spanish. My husband loved the bird watching in the area whilst I enjoyed relaxing by the pool and enjoying being surrounded by the tranquility of the villa, no road noise, just bird song!

We would love to bring our family here in the summer wooed by the idea of BBqs, relaxing by the pool and exploring the beautiful white traditional villages that Andalucia has to offer. If you want to be away from the tourists and hecticness of the coast and sample the real Spain then this is the place for you! In fact since our return, we have booked this villa again and my husband has been learning Spanish in earnest so we can really get the best out of what Andalucia and Villa Romo have to offer!

Owner's Response: Although Villa Romo is very private and rural many of our guests enjoy the walk of around 20 minutes to family run Bar El Niño.....just far enough away to work up a thirst! And meet some of the locals. Trisha seemed happy to read while Steve with his bins caught sight of many beautiful birds and listed them for me. Thanks for your kind comments and we look forward to seeing you again in October! Carl

Perfect place for both adults and children

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and very quiet stay in the mountains of Malaga. The house, swimmingpool and barbeque added so much value to our holiday and made it easy to be 6 adults and 2 kids.The house is placed in fantastic surroundings with small villages and scenic view.

The hosts Carl and Maria are very friendly and welcoming people. They helped before arrival with important information, they bought food for breakfast the first day, because our arrival were late. and during the week they answered our questions about sightseeing and shopping.

We will highly recommend this house for everyone who needs a big and quiet place for both adults and children. We hope to come back one day :-)

Value for money!

  • 4 of 5

We had some trouble to find the house. My mistake. In my head I measured kilometers and our rental measures miles. But we found it. Carl and Maria welcomed us, showing the house and telling us everything about the neighbourhood. It's a big house so plenty of room for the two of us. The kitchen is very compleet. I liked the dishwasher!! And there were some groceries for the first day. Beer wine, milk, butter and jam, eggs and bread. I liked that very much! The house is very claen and well maintained. Sitting outside is wonderfull and the pool is a big bonus. Normally we are very active during vacations, but now we did stay a lot near the pool and relaxed. The place is so quiet, I liked that!! And in the evening we went to Table Mountain rest. They serve good food and the wines are superb. Comares is a very nice village, you can buy your groceries there. After 1 week we went to Marbella and I had some problems to adjust to the noise and bussiness. I missed the silence and the lack of people. Maybe we come back with some of the children and grandchildren!!

A very nice and quiet place to be! Paradise:)

  • 5 of 5

We were at Villa Romo at the end of oktober 2015. As a very good host Carl has given us coffe, wine, ornage juice, bread, butter. Everything you need was in the house. Nothing was missing. All was very clean. The vieuws ware wonderful, the privacy fantastic, We enjoyed the swimming pool, the nice BBQ, the flowers ans palms. We have been in Antequera, with its beautiful nature, nice little villages, the sea and Granada. We come back and we will give this information to all our family, friends, and colleguas.

Stunning City Escape!!!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, I'd like to start with a thank you to Carl and Maria who were wonderful hosts. We originally wanted to book another villa but it had just been rented a few days earlier and Carl kindly recommended this villa for us. I can only say how lucky I was the other villa had gone as I would find Villa Romo very hard to better. Everything you need for a family get away from it all and with the free Wifi it makes it possible to keep in touch with those back home/outside world if you need to. The views here are some of the best I've seen in Spain and although the twisting roads can be a bit intimidating to the lazy city driver I ended up loving the experience. The location near Comares is perfect as it's only 45min/1hr drive from Malaga airport and within 1-1 1/2hrs drive from lots of resorts you can visit it you feel like seeing some faster paced life. We particularly enjoyed evenings out in Malaga old town and Torremolinos both within 1 hrs travel from the villa although the local restaurant in Comares was also excellent and very inexpensive. The pool was amazing and my kids enjoyed so much my son actually learned to swim within the week we spent there. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa enough if you are looking to recharge those batteries and get away from it all. If I decide to return for another holiday to this part of Spain I will definitely have Villa Romo top of my list.

Car: recommended

Villa Romo is set in a rural Axarquia, a hilly region 40 minutes drive from the coast and 10 minutes from Comares village. Comares is one of the highest villages in the Axarquia, approx 800 metres above sea level, with dramatic views all the way to the Mediterranean, some 25 kms distant. Mostly unchanged by modern living on the coast, Inland Axarquia is a quiet area of hills and windy roads; the views are fantastic! This is the place to unwind and go with the slower pace of life. Malaga city and airport is a 1 hour drive - max. Granada airport is around 80 mins and the Alhambra Palace 10 mins further. Villa Romo is centrally located for touring Andalucia; Seville, Cordoba and Antequerra are easily reached by good roads. Nerja, with famous caves and good beaches, is 1 hour by car.

Villa Romo is accessed directly from a minor country road onto a private driveway. Ample off road parking for 4 cars/caravan/camper - please ask.
