Villa El Botin, Comares, Andalucia
HEATING AVAILABLE FOR THE SWIMMING POOL!!!! Beautiful 4 Bedroom Villa with 2 Bathrooms, living room, Kitchen, BBQ, private swimming pool 12m x 4m which can be heated, small fee, and terraces with fantastic views of the Sea and Mountains. The villa is 25 minutes by car from lovely beaches, 20 minutes to Lake Vinuela and 5 minutes by car to the spectacular village of Comares which has bars, shops, restaurants and banks. From this villa you can easily visit Granada, Seville, Ronda and Cordoba. We even managed North Africa for the day.
As you step into Comares you need time to pause and drink in the breathtaking views. From here you can survey the mules and goats being taken down the steep track that winds below the cliff. Comares, with narrow,cobbled streets,is steeped in history and can be traced back to the 3rd Century BC. Today there are bars, restaurants, banks & a small supermarket. The pace of life is slow and in keeping with the past. The village and surrounding fincas form a lively community. There are no souvenir shops but several bars, restaurants and a very attractive hotel converted from an olive mill with courtyards overlooking breathtaking views. When wandering around the steep and narrow streets you may find yourself invited into the home of a Spanish lady who sells local produce such as wine, almonds, raisins, olives, honey and cheese.
Comares dates from Medieval times and has a history of rebellion against Muslim and Christian rulers. Of interest to the visitor are a series of ceramic plaques which depict the villages history, Medieval arches and footprint paving tiles which are a guide to the main streets. There is also an old Moorish fortress, once a Roman military outpost, known as La Tahona where two turrets are still intact. The church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación was built in the 16th century of Mudejar style.
