Buckets of charm
This villa is beautiful, the location is stunning which means the views from the terraces are lovely, you could just look out at them all day! It is an exaggeration to say there's internet! It's very poor and only in certain parts of the villa, and you have to get the password from the restaurant next door( which is no hardship, that place is great) however the charms of the villa outweigh the lack of Wi-Fi. I would recommend going to the restaurant next door, great food, service and atmosphere! The kitchen and dining room are well equipped, and the beds are very comfortable. The pool is better than it looks on the photos, small but with a deep end, and we spent plenty of time enjoying it. Alba and Bob are perfect hosts, very accommodating and helpful, stick to Albas tips for helping keep the house cool, they work! I would certainly recommend this villa, and would revisit again.
Stunning Spanish Getaway
This place is a true home from home. 7 of us stayed for a week in June 2018, ages ranging from pre teens to late teens over 60 and everyone had an amazing time. The 50 minute drive from the airport is spectacular and the views from the house are also stunning. Comares is only about a 5 minute drive and is well worth the visit and the restaurant/bar el Molino which is next door, is like an extension to the villa. The house itself is beautiful, the kids loved exploring but its the outside living area which really makes this place. There are plenty of places to go and get some peace and quiet. The pool was a welcome relief from the heat and there is also a table tennis room which was lovely and cool. The hosts Alba and Bob are very welcoming and always a phone call away if you have any questions. We will be returning, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Its always lovely to receive a great review. We especially like the comments about how all the various ages enjoyed the house and area and found plenty to do.
So if anyone out there likes the sound of it all you need to do is get in touch.

Great Location with stunning views
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Carlito in January. Spacious house with a swimming pool which would be lovely in summer & autumn.
Beautifully located and within easy reach of delightful walks and stunning views.
Comares is a great village full of character and history. Alba & Bob are very easy going and most welcoming . You can therefore guarantee a relaxing stay.

Winter holiday in Comares
Situated in the foothills above Malaga. About an hour from the airport. You will need satnav to get there as you will be taking a mountain road – the views are stunning.
The property is easy to find and is in a small hamlet below the town of Comares itself. There are lots of bedrooms and this house would suit two or even three families with children. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use. There are loads of bathrooms with good showers and the water is always hot.
There is a games room with a good table tennis table. If you want to play snooker you can do so at a local bar. The pool is small and we did not use it as temperatures in January are too cool. However we did sit outside for breakfast on several occasions. What a treat to be able to sit outside on a January morning and enjoy the winter sunshine! ( in the summer the position of this villa in the foothills above Malaga will mean the nights will be cooler and you will be able to sleep better)
Bob and Alba are easy to deal with. Bob is English and has worked in Spain for 20 years. Alba is Colombian and is practical and a fluent English speaker.
We had open fires every evening and there was a good supply of firewood at the back of the property which made this possible.
You will probably want to visit Malaga. In January there are light shows at 6:30 PM every evening in central Malaga. Go early in the afternoon as the city becomes clogged up at about six in January because of this light show.Visit the Picasso museum or for a more relaxed day go to the botanical Gardens. The most fantastic mature trees and a wisteria walk which would be lovely in May/June . There is always the beach or a stroll along the paseo marítima.
The more adventurous should go to Granada for a day. The Alambra palace is stunning and the generalife gardens are amazing! Go and find the staircase where a stream cascades down the balustrades. Such a visit will enable you to understand the importance the Moors played in Spain during centuries. Comares, of course, with its restored architecture is also indicative of Spain's Moorish history. It is a lovely town to stroll around and the remains of the old Moorish fort can still be seen. The views from the main square over the foothills are stunning.
While staying at Villa Carlitos we did a long walk along the dried out riverbed. There was lavender in flower and honey bees working the wildflowers. I wish I had taken some binoculars.
We absolutely loved staying in Villa Carlitos for two weeks! We were a family of 8 on vacation in Andalucia. Villa Carlitos is an incredibly charming old house. If you want to feel that you are in real Spain - this is it. And this is exactly what we wanted. There are pros and cons that future travelers might want to consider, and since we rely so much on other people's reviews I'd like to leave some constructive feedback here.
- The feel of the house is amazing and totally worth sacrificing a few creature comforts. Seriously, it's magical.
- The terraces are wonderful and where we spent most of our time.
- The location is a bit remote, but there's a bar next door where we made ourselves at home :) We met a bunch of locals and blended in the pueblo life for a couple of weeks.
-Alba and her husband are wonderful hosts and were there for us throughout our stay.
- In hindsight we could have really used real AC because it was very warm in the house. There are fans but on really hot days it was not enough for us.
- After about a week the two bathrooms upstairs had a bad odor. Again, this is an old house - just a part of the charm!
- The house is located a few miles from the village which means we weren't able to walk to the pueblo. That was perhaps the biggest downside for us because we had to get into the car any time we wanted to do anything. If you are considering staying here you absolutely have to have a car.
In sum, I definitely recommend Villa Carlitos for your Andalucia vacation. You'll get a chance to meet locals and really immerse yourself in the culture which is the best way to travel as far as I'm concerned. Thank you Alba for your hospitality! May we meet again!
A gorgeous, homely countryside villa
We stayed at the villa for a week, and it was absolutely perfect. The villa is perfect for a big group with 3 different beautiful terraces where you can sit and lounge all day long. The pool is great for cooling down, and there is a another local pool just up the road. It is a very peaceful area, but close enough to a couple of small bars and a gorgeous, quaint town centre. Bob and Alba were so helpful and friendly, they made us very welcome. We will definitely be back. Thank you!
