|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
Heated swimming pool for the coolest months! In an outstanding situation amidst almond and olive groves and with magnificent views of mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, the villa is located on a quiet road, with a short drive from the road to the house. It is a house with a beautiful swimming pool and lovely terraces, some shaded to enjoy outdoors dinners. There is, an outdoor summer kitchen. The views are fantastic. The house is well equipped and furnished to a good standard.
Torre del Mar is the nearest beach and is approximately 25/30 minutes drive. It has an attractive beach and promenade where you will find bars, restaurants and entertainment for adults and children.
Pedregalejo, 5km west of Malaga city centre, is a popular beach and the promenade has many bars and restaurants.
Nerja and the caves of Nerja, is approximately 1 hour, and the journey on the coast road from Nerja from Comares is superb!
The white village of Comares, the most beautiful village in the Axarquia, is delightful. It is 5 minutes from the house, by car, and has bars, banks, shops, baker, restaurants, Pharmacy and doctor. There are more bars and restaurants in the small village of Los Ventorros, 10 minutes by car from the house. Malaga and the city is one hours drive from the house. You can visit Granada in 90 minutes. The house is perfect for visiting other cities in Andalucia, like, Cordoba, Seville and Ronda. This area of Southern Spain has the best climate of all of Europe and has good temperaturas throughout the year. Come and discover the pretty village of Comares and the life of Andalucia.
This villa certainly ticked all the boxes for a peaceful stay in wonderful surroundings. The villa was exactly as described and the pool with heating was superb for early morning and late swimming. The surrounding area is lovely and well worth exploring. The local village of Comares has everything you need and is a pretty white village on the top of a hill. The caretaker called on the first day and was available if needed. overall I would recommend this villa for a peaceful quiet holiday.
As an older couple, our priorities when looking for a private villa are peace and quiet and seclusion; a decent swimming pool is also a must. At Villa El Botin we had all this plus wonderful, 360 deg views of the sea and the mountains, dotted with similar whitewashed villas and fincas. The weather, although hot, was tempered by cooling breezes and, although the villa lacked air conditioning (which we never require anyway) we had free-standing fans to keep us cool indoors, particularly when sleeping. Another bonus was the very effective wi-fi which provided a decent signal almost to the far end of the pool. All other facilities were as described and expected. A squeaky bedroom door was quickly fixed after a call to Jose Antonia who owns the property. A cracked coffee jug was not replaced however although he assured us he would.
The turn-off to the villa could be easily missed as it is on a particularly tight hair-pin bend and the sign "Botin" is hand-painted in black on a dark green background, not the easiest to spot, particularly after dusk/dark. Then there is the actual driveway from the track down and then up to the villa which is a bit scarey until you get used to it!
The distances quoted in the on-line descriptions were somewhat optimistic, Comares being nearer to 6kms and not 3kms and one website quoted the nearest taverna as 1km from the villa; we never did find it, Salto del Negro being the nearest village and that 4kms back towards Velez Malaga. We found that the small supermarket in Benamargosa was the easiest and quickest to get to, 2 kms further down the hill from Salto del Negro. There are also 2 or 3 small cafes there, a tabac and bakery, although the best restaurants/cafes are in Comares. There is a very large supermarket in Valez Malaga, within the large shopping complex, the Torre del Mar side of the motorway. The beach at Torre del Mar is superb with sun-loungers available for 2 euros per day and restaurants with loos every 200 meters along the promenade. We visited the Al Hambra in Granada which was very easy to find, being on the entrance road into Granada so no need to drive right through the City. It was a leisurely 1 hour 45 min drive and we booked our time slot (essential when visiting) before we left the UK (20 euros for 2 OAPs). There is a huge car park next to the palace (7.50 euros for about 6 hours).
Overall, a very enjoyable villa which I would happily recommend to friends and family.
Location is absolutely amazing.
The house is large with swimming pool 12x4 meters, barbecue grills, large kitchen, everything is there.
Clean and tidy. good service.
The temperature in the pool 35 and in the air about 25 degrees.
The small village of Comares must be visited.
Fantastic villa, in a superb location only 45 minutes from Malaga airport.
Once there if you wish to see any other sites, many places only a short journey away and the roads in may are very quiet..
The views from the villa are fantastic, a great escape for peace and quiet.
Jose was superb and nothing was too much trouble .Would certainly recommend to friends and family.
If arriving on a Sunday no shops are open to buy provisions so either order the welcome pack or take some basic things with you.
Lake vineula is a really nice place to visit.
This is a perfect villa to rent if you want to be away from it all - with only magnificent views of the mountains and the sound of birds.
The Villa has everything you would need to make your stay completely enjoyable. The heated pool is an absolute bonus and a really good size!
Jose was very helpful and friendly and was on hand if we needed anything during our stay.
We would definitely book El Botin again. If you want complete and utter seclusion, this is the ideal place to stay! It is a truly relaxing and secluded villa and we would very much recommend it!
Well equipped,clean and comfortable house with complete privacy. The heated pool is a good size and was really warm at the start of April. We had a couple of minor snags that were dealt with immediately by the friendly staff.
Comares is in the mountains so it can take a while to get around on the winding roads. Trips to the beach and Malaga are easily in range, but Granada and Seville are 2-3 hours drive away.
I would recommend the property to anyone except those with very young children (for safety around the pool and stairs).
Comares, Costa Del Sol, Andalusia, is to the East of Malaga and is the most beautiful village of the Axarquía.

Located 60 minutes by car, from the airport and Malaga train station and 25 minutes drive from the motorway exit of Vélez-Málaga.
