Brisa Mar Victor (UK)
Superb location, the property is very well equipted and clean, the welcome pack is a nice touch. There are plenty of good restaurants, shops and bars within walking distance so a car is not absolutely necessary but a little spanish will go a long way. A/C would be a welcome addition but all in all a great place to spend your holiday. Recommended.
Fishersman’s Cottage Paul & Linden (UK)
Thank you for letting us stay in your fantastic cottage. Its a great location, everything on the doorstep including some good restaurants and of course the beach! Its been a perfect lazy holiday for us, we´ve not ventured far but done a lot of relaxing. A great little cottage, we´ve had many nice evenings up on the terrace. Thanks again!
Villa La Cruz Brian (UK)
A perfect getaway from it all. We have just returned from a very relaxing week at the villa……just what we needed! Villa La Cruz is one of the best appointed villas we have rented with quality bedroom furnishings, modern shower rooms and everything our family needed in the kitchen. Our 3 children loved the pool – which is huge! And we were lucky with sunshine most days so early in the year. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the walk to the local bar, El Molino, in Los Ventorros…….It takes around 15 minutes or so and we rewarded ourselves with some local tapas and a bottle of vino! Comares is a beautiful area with lots of walking routes for all ages. And we recommend a trip to the beach at Torre del Mar, try the tasty seafood and hire a bike for the kids! A perfect get away from it all holiday. Thanks!
School House Villa Marie (UK)
A house with a spectacular view! We, an extended family of 11, had a lovely time in this house! Luckily, we were met in Riogordo by very friendly and welcoming people, since this is in the very heart of of the agricultural Andalucia and we really enjoyed the spectacular view. Both children and adults spent a lot of time around the pool, but we also took a few walks in the countryside. The area is perfect for trips to the beautiful village Comares (20 km), the coast and cities as Grenada (Alhambra) and Malaga. We would be happy to return.
Villa Carolina Nick & Sian (UK)
We stayed for just over a fortnight, arriving in the small hours guided by clear directions from Carl, who looked after us very well. The villa is about a 9-minute drive from the nearest village (Comares), down a twisty but (mostly) well surfaced lane. First impression on entering: Villa Carolina was fresh, clean and warm. First impressions were confirmed throughout. It’s airy, light, modern, nicely furnished and well-equipped. The beds are comfortable and the sofa beds in the living room are well above average and good both to sit and lie on. The kitchen is well laid out and there’s plenty of cutlery/crockery/pans etc, although if you want to cook rather than eat out, then best bring your own cooking knife. The whole place was spotless.
The pool was also well-maintained (Trevor cleans it once a week through the season), and it’s kept filled throughout the year, which is a nice touch. It was fine to swim in at the start, though was chilling down a bit by mid-month. I think you’d need to be a North Sea swimmer to go in it by November.
The barbeque is top quality and well worth using. On the terrace you are not overlooked at all. Neighbouring properties are at least hundreds of yards away. You face south, and get the sun from sunrise to early evening. There are awnings which give good shade through the day. The area is traditionally cultivated, and the main sounds are dogs barking now and then, goat bells, sardinian warblers and little owls.
There’s a small but quite well stocked mini-supermarket (Coviran) in the village, a bigger one in Benamargosa 11 km away and a massive Eroski hypermarket on the edge of Velez Malaga at about 35-40 minutes. There are some great places to explore via some scenic (and sometimes hairy) drives. The road to Colmenar is great fun. El Torcal and Antequera are about an hour away. In summary, we really liked Villa Carolina. We’ve stayed in a lot of places over the years, and this is up with the best of them for the price range. Excellent value, and we would wholeheartedly recommend it!
