Finca overview - owner's description

Casa de Pepe is a traditional Andalucian cortijo with fantastic mountain and sea views from its two terraces.

The property comprises of a large patio and covered terrace area on the ground floor, leading into the indoor dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin) and the bathroom. There are stairs leading to the large and airy living room with doors out onto the upstairs terrace, and a double sofa bed. This terrace can also be reached via an external staircase. There is also a private plunge pool for cooling off on the hot summer days and a gas BBQ for al fresco dining.

It is the ideal place to unwind as the area is quiet with views that constantly change as the sun moves. If you holiday over the winter you will be able to see the snow capped peak of La Maroma.

With an average 320 days of sunshine a year this area of Spain makes an ideal all year round destination. Indeed, La Alqueria is set in a micro climate, and isn't affected by the winds and so it is usually still warm enough to sit outside during the day time even in winter, although the nights are cold once the sun goes down. In the summer, the south facing aspect makes it a sun worshippers paradise, the covered terrace provides a shady and cooler place to sit if you want to get out of the sun. As the house is built in the traditional style, the walls are thick and so inside the property it remains cool even in summer.

Within the property there are steps to the bedrooms and to the kitchen which would make it unsuitable for a wheelchair user. The surrounding area is also hilly and so may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.

Car hire is essential

Welcome pack on arrival for stays of 3 nights or more. Upgrades available please ask for details.

La Alqueria is a small hamlet approximately 2 km from the village of Comares. The house is in Huerta Baja, which means lower orchard. The area is full of citrus trees, mangos, almonds, pomegranates and of course olives.

Comares is approximately 700m above sea level and is known as the Balcony of Axarquia. The Tourist Information in Comares is located in La Plaza Balcon de La Axarquia which is the main square as you enter the village. From here you will also find bars, restaurants, shops, banks and post office, tobacconist and the pharmacy.

If you fancy exploring a bit further afield then you are spolit for choice. Within about 2 hours you could be in Granada, Seville, Gibraltar, Ronda or Cordoba taking in the amazing history that Spain has to offer, as well as fantastic views around every corner. Malaga is about a 45 minute drive where you will find shops, museums and much, much more.

Torre del Mar is the nearest beach to the house, and is still relatively unspoilt compared to some of the other resorts along the Costa del Sol. You are also only a stones throw from Lake Vinuela where you can swim, do water sports or just relax and drink in the views.

Other activities in the area include historic sites, caves, museums, walking, cycling, golf, horse riding, water sports, water park, bird watching, flying, climbing and zip wire - the longest in Spain. Please ask if you require further information on any of these activities

I cannot thank Jane and Luc enough for their hospitality during my three days at their guest house. A perfect retreat to relax and take in the breathtaking views that Spain never fails to deliver. It did not stop there in the evening it is a star gazers paradise I spent so long marveling at the the different constellations I went to bed with a bit of a sore neck ! no wonder Luc has a telescope :) On arrival at Casa de Pepe you are under no illusion that you are in the real Spain, surrounded with mountains full of olive trees and grape vines with just just the sound of birds and the odd tractor for your soundtrack I was looking forward to chilling out and drinking some good rioja. The guest house is very comfortable with a Choice of a double bedroom or twin as well as the upstairs sofa bed as I was travelling on my own I of course opted for the double :) there is a few steep steps up to the bedroom from the dining room so not great if you are not able bodied but very comfortable and private all the same. The kitchen has everything you need including a dishwasher, washing machine, and the usual cooker fridge etc and all pots and pans making it a very practical self catering holiday. The thing that hits you the most are the stunning views from both terraces to wake up to these unobstructed views each morning is worth the nightly fee on its own let alone the pool and the tranquility. I hired a car from Malaga airport and it took me a leisurely 1 hr and 15 mins to get to the nearby village of Comares A delightful old town steeped in history I spent most of my second day here. Once arrived Luc met me and guided me down to the guest house which is 10 mins from the center. The welcome pack including beer was much appreciated and I quickly settled in to my accommodation.You do need to be friendly as they greeted us upon my arrival fortunately I love dogs and each one is adorable and wanted to make room in my suitcase for at least one. The guest house is quite private and safe and you are left alone to do your own thing but if you need anything at all Jane and Luc are on hand to help. Overall an excellent stay and will definitely be going back. Thank you Jane and luc for a lovely stay see you soon,

Booked Casa De Pepe for 2 weeks mainly to relax and celebrate my 50th birthday with my husband an a couple of friends. Jane and Luc are an amazing couple who cant do enough for you. Before we arrived at Casa De Pepe, we phoned Jane for the best place to get some shopping she gave us directions to the local supermarket in Velez Malaga. Upon arrival we phoned and Luc met us at the top of the road to follow him down to the house. They had left us provisions in the fridge, eggs, cold meat, milk, butter, fresh orange, tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, soap powder, washing up liquid, not forgetting the bowl of delicious cherries too! Luc even went to the supermarket for us on the first night as we ran out of wine. Thanks Luc. The house is fantastic with everything you need. Double bedroom is a reasonable size with chest of drawers and double wardrobe and a welcomed fan, although the farmhouse is cooler than outside, we did feel we needed the fan after all we were there end of July beginning Aug. Twin room also with double wardrobe. Living room upstairs via stair off the dining room or up the outside stair leading to the outside balcony with sunbeds and dining table. There is a tv with videos, wii, books and lots more, we never used the lounge we sat mostly outside downstairs. Dining room with large dresser stocked well with plenty glasses cups etc. Information table with all the local information you might need, if not Jane and Luc are always on hand for any questions you might have. There is also a safe, but we never felt the need to use it we felt confident that our belongings were safe enough. Kitchen is not overly large but it had all the requirements needed for your holiday, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettle toaster, fridge freezer, all utensils, etc. Homemade birthday cake from Jane and Luc a bottle of Cava and a card for my birthday, what a thoughtful thing. All in all think this place has to have been one of the most relaxing and chilled out places I have ever been. Without a doubt we will be back and also be recommending to friends. Plunge pool excellent relief when we got too hot, most days the temperature in the pool was 30-35°C I would like to take this opportunity to wish Jane & Luc all the best with their business as they continue to work hard.

“What a view you have from Casa de Pepe. Just to sit back and relax in the evening seeing the mountains and the sea was amazing. Jane and Luc are the sweetest and most helpful people we have ever meet. We got alot of good tips of what to do on our holiday. The house itself is really cosily and on hot days its really cool and comfortable inside. We stayed for almost three weeks and could easily stayed another week. If one seeks a place for peace and quiet and to relax this is definitely a great choice.”

What a fantastic place! We wish we had stayed longer. It's a fantastic base to explore - day trips to Malaga and Granada are possible, lots of great walking a beautiful villages nearby. We picked fresh lemons from the tree outside. The house is really nice, it has a large living room upstairs with a big private terrace with stunning views. Downstairs in the living room, bathroom, kitchen and the two bedrooms are up some stairs at the back. Our hosts were wonderful - unfortunately we were delayed and didn't arrive until after midnight, but they were totally fine with that and came to meet us on the main road (the final 100m to the property is on a v.minor road which would be hard to find on your own). They left us with nice things for breakfast. If you want to get away from it all, I can't recommend this place highly enough!

We spent a week at Casa de Pepe in April. When we arrived a welcome pack awaited which was much appreciated following our flight and journey from the airport. The accommodation is well appointed with everything you could need, it is set in beautiful surroundings, and is very peaceful and tranquil. There is a daily bread and weekly fresh fish delivery. The plunge pool was most welcome on the hot days. Malaga Old Town is close by and Seville and Granada are within easy driving distance. The area itself is very popular with cyclists, bikers and walkers. Jane and Luc are very helpful if there is anything you want to know about the area, and there is plenty of information in the farmhouse too. If you are wanting a holiday to get away from it all then Casa de Pepe is for you!

Jane and Luke were very accommodating hosts, they left us ample food and even a bottle of wine, which was a breath of fresh air after a stressful day, they also were fine meeting us a bit late too, which was very nice. They were very courteous and polite. The house itself is amazing at a very reasonable price, with amazing views and some cute dogs. The movies, PS3 and sky TV were also a very welcome surprise. Overall a very nice place to stay with very nice hosts, my only regret is we only stayed a night. Would highly recommend!

Awesome! What a great little place up in the mountains, with an amazing view. Place was a little chilly but the had 4 space heaters for us to use, and I was there in the spring. Otherwise it was perfect.

Myself and my partner recently spent a week at Casa de Pepe. Luc and Jane were very welcoming, and had provided us with a great food parcel when we arrived. The plan was to do quite a lot of sightseeing, but, when we arrived the weather was warmer than expected, so we took full advantage of the terrace and BBQ, and enjoyed the views for much of the time. We could feel the stress wash away. We did visit Comares and followed the trail around the village. There are a lot of steep slopes, but it's worth the walk around this lovely village which gave us a good excuse for some well deserved tapas in Bar La Plaza in the main square. A trip to the coastal town of Torre del Mar and a bus ride to Malaga completed our sightseeing, but we will be back. Casa de Pepe is an ideal location from which to explore much of historic Spain. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting to kick back and enjoy the slow paced life in this beautiful area.
