The villa is 30 minutes from the coast set in fabulous mountain
scenery. If you can tear yourself away from the pool it is ideal for
walking, cycling, horseriding and taking in the superb views. It is
just outside the very pretty and traditional village of Comares
where you can find bars and restaurants.

Comares stands on a rock which overlooks the Periana Corridor and
part of the Axarquia sierra to the North, while the immense Velez
Valley and the Sierra de Tejeda are visible in the south.

Of Arabic origin, its location suggests that it must have been built
as a military vantage point, its layout still conserving the typical
features of fortress towns, its narrow, winding streets lined with
white one or two-storey houses. Places of architectural interest
include the remains of the fortress, Masmullar Hill, the Arabic
cistern and Our Lady’s Church, built in Mudejar style. The Cemetery,
which stands above the Village, is worth a visit if only for the
views from its vantage point.

A bit of History
Due to its location atop a mountain overlooking most of the Axarquia
area, the village has a long history dating back to prehistoric

It may have been the site of Iberian settlements and, later, a Roman

Nazari texts refer to Comares by the name Hisn Qumarich (the Castle
of Comares).

It was one of the main defensive bastions of the muladí (Christian
convert to Islam) rebellion led by Omar Ben Hafsun before being
recaptured at the start of the 10th century by Abderraman III. Some
authors have believe the nearby Masmullar or Mazmullar plateau to
have been the site of the fortress town of Bobastro, though it seems
certain that it actually stood on the Villaverde plateaux, between
the present-day villages of Alora and Ardales.

In the 11th century, it was the administrative headquarters of a
group known as “The Four Villages” (El Borge, Almachar, Moclinejo
Cutar), which enjoyed the protection of Comares Fortress.

In May 1487, shortly after Vélez Málaga fell into Christian hands,
Mohamed El Jabis -the last Moslem governor of Comares- paid homage
to the Catholic Monarchs in an attempt to avoid any reprisals and to
conserve some semblance of rights for the Moslem population. Though
the moriscos (Moslem converts to Christianity) of Comares enjoyed
more advantages than their counterparts in other villages of the
Axarquia area, their lives would not have easy; proof of this is the
gradual abandonment of the village’s lands which are chronicled as
having been repopulated in 1490 by Old Christians from Extremadura,
other parts of Andalusia, Valencia and even Portugal and Galicia.

In 1512, the town was incorporated in to the estate of the Marquis
of Comares, Don Diego Fernandez de Córdoba.

Though the inhabitants of Comares played no part in the morisco
uprising which engulfed practically the whole of the Axarquia region
in 1568 and 1569, the 1570 expulsion which followed these events
affected all of the Mudejars in the area, who were forced to leave
lands which they had owned for centuries.

Why not take a drive through the Sierra Nevada mountains to Granada,
one of the most beautiful cities in Spain with its gorgeous Alhambra
Palace and romantic Generalife Gardens
Catch a concert in the caves of Nerja, the 197ft high Sala de
Cataclismo is the venue for a music and dance festival each summer
in July
Join in a fiesta with fireworks, funfair, fino sherry and authentic
flamenco dancing during the peak summer season
Visit the brand new Picasso Museum in Malaga ? next door to a Roman
theatre and a Renaissance-style cathedral ? displaying rare works
donated by the artist ??s family
Situated between Algarrabo and Velez Malaga, the Bavaria golf course
is gaining a reputation as one of the top courses on this coastline.

Andalucia is a fascinating place for its spectacular Moorish
monuments, beautiful white hill towns, sparkling blue coast and
natural beauty of its mountainous country. The Moors were a mixed
race of Berbers and Arabs that occupied Spain (Al-Andalus) for
almost eight hundred years. They developed the most sophisticated
civilization in the Middle Ages, centered in Seville , Cordoba and
Granda. Every city, town and village, is a wonderful mixture of
Christian and Muslim influence. Granada preserves the most beautiful
Moorish monuments, the Alhambra palace, being the largest and most
sensual building in Europe. Córdoba's old mosque with a cathedral
built inside it and the spectacular remains of the ancient Moorish
city of Medna Azahara shold be regarded as a mustsee whislt Seville
boasts the most spectacular of all Gothic cathedrals and largest
church in the world as well as its Moorish Alcazar.
The white towns surrounding Ronda , offer an unspoiled view into
Andalucian life with their surrounding natural beauty, delicious
home-cooking and stunning appearance-clustered beneath
Moorish/Christian castles and churches. There are some terrific
walks in this area.
The mountains in the Sierra Nevada and, less known, the Sierra
Morena [particularly its western projection in the Sierra de Aracena
offer good trekking and skiing, while the coast between Tarifa and
Cadiz Cadiz on the Atlantic has some of the best beaches in Spain.
Beware of Europe’s most developed resort area on the Costa del Sol
as it is hard to find peace and natural beauty, without paying a
high price. Finally, Spain’s largest and most impressive nature
reserve, Coto Donana, can be found near Cadiz .
Although unemployment in the province is the highest in Spain (about
20%), it is still known as one of the most high-spirited regions of
Spain as it is home to flamenco dancing, bullfighting and a gigantic
April carnival (Semana Santa).
