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.
Come and enjoy! The price for heating the swimming pool for one week is 95 euros. You must request this, it is not automatic!
Beautiful 4 bedroom villa with large private swimming pool which can be HEATED. 5 Minutes from traditional spanish village.

We spent the most relaxing 2 weeks in this great house in october this year!El Botin has a lot of space and nice places for breakfast or dinner outside. So we often stayed at the house in the evenings, had a lovely barbecue and a great swim in the heated pool under the stars... We had our two boys, 11 and 14 , with us and could hardly get them out of the water. The view to the sea and Velez- Malaga from both the pool and the terrace on the first floor are stunning, both at sunrise and at night . The house is well equipped with dishwasher and a washing machine, both of which we did regularly use. If you decide for the additional pool heating, look forward to a temperature at night that almost resembles your bathtub water. We loved it so much at El Botin that we immeadiately reserved for 2015 again. Both, Linda and Jose had been very helpful in answering questions or offering assistance. We can clearly recommend this great place. Susanne Jentsch

This is a perfect villa to rent if you want to be away from it all - with only magnificent views of the mountains and the sound of birds. The Villa has everything you would need to make your stay completely enjoyable. The heated pool is an absolute bonus and a really good size! Jose was very helpful and friendly and was on hand if we needed anything during our stay. We would definitely book El Botin again. If you want complete and utter seclusion, this is the ideal place to stay! It is a truly relaxing and secluded villa and we would very much recommend it!
très bien équipée ! (manque de chauffage l\hiver mais il y a une cheminée au bois disponible) endroit isolé et tranquille ! Vue splendide ! Je souhaite vous remercier de votre gentillesse ainsi que de votre écoute en cas de problème ! PARFAIT !

superbe vue, maison avec tout le confort, très bien équipée avec une piscine fantastique. Le cadre est merveilleux idéal pour des vacances entre amis ou en famille, repos assuré!!!
Maison isolée située au calme à 4km de Comares idéale pour faire le vide, vue magnifique sur Velez Malaga (encore plus grandiose la nuit).
Maison très propre et très agréable. La chose seule qui manque c\est la climatisation.
We had a wonderful holiday in this villa. The house was warm, clean and very comfortable. We arrived at night but had excellent directions and the caretaker was there to greet us and make sure we had everything we needed. The next morning when we woke up we could not believe the views from the house, they are amazing!! You have views of the Mountains, the beautiful countryside down to the med, just spectacular. Also we were able to swim in the heated swimming pool even in January. The pool is massive and we were able to swim and enjoy the views of the sea at the same time. We were just a few minutes from the village of Comares which has some lovely bars and restaurants and we got to visit Granada and Seville. We will definately return. January 2011
Lo tiene todo para ser el alojamiento rural perfecto, calidad de construccion y decoracion en la vivienda, entorno espectacular, de verdad aislada del mundanal ruido y por si fuera poco, los postres con que te obsequian los propietarios son sencillamente espectaculares, para satisfacer al mas selec to de los paladares. Si lo que buscas es aislarte en un ambiente de verdad rural, no lo dudes, esta es tu casa. Rafael Campos November 2011
We loved this house. The owners asked us to write a comment and it is our pleasure. The house is located in spectacular surroundings and the views are to die for. You have panoramic views down to the sea from the house, the terrace and the swimming pool! The house is clean, comfortable and big. Everything we needed was provided and there was a caretaker on hand if we needed anything more. The pool was massive and cleaned regularly. We will return. Philip Goulam January 2012
This house was great for a large group of people. The owners were really friendly and helpful and making the reservation was easy. When we arrived there was everything we needed, the house was very well equipped. The best part of the house for us was the swimming pool which is a great size and has amazing views!! The house has a wonderful sea view. The pool was heated for us and we used it every day and also at night. If we needed anything it was easy to call the caretaker who was very friendly. We hope to return again in 2012 if possible. We also visited Comares village which has some lovely restaurants and a very nice atmosphere. Thanks for a great holiday.Rosa Pitts December 2011
The house was brandnew in may 2010, so it was spotless.It was well equipped and had a spacious kitchen.The pool was great, but the best thing is the splendid isolation, no neighbours, and an unimpaired vieuw from the hilltop out to the sea,which is about 10 km away, 15 by road.
The representatives of the english owners was irreproacheable and friendly, some maintenace was done with a big smile.The old villages around are all nice and the nearest,Comares, is spectacular.

I will get to the point. The house is perfectly equipped, very comfortable and spacious. The location is very calm and the views are gorgeous. The service was just perfect. I was received with a smile and they made sure I was leaving with a big one. I had a small problem when the electricity failed and as soon as I called they were there and solved the problem immediately. They helped us to get wood for the fireplace and gave us all information about the house and the surroundings.
I reccomend staying in this villa without any doubt. I will for sure return.

We had a fantastic holiday at this villa. The villa is in a brilliant situation with gorgeous views of the sea and a massive, heated swimming pool!!! The house was lovely and clean with evertything we needed for a brilliant holiday. Just 5 minutes from the village which is also beautiful. The owners were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had a caretaker who visited regularly to make sure we had no problems. Would definately return, cant wait.

Private house in very silent place with nobody around. Fantastic view on the mountains and sea. Heated swimming pool, fireplace, bbq, lemon and orange garden.
Dmitry Kurkovich February 2012
We had a wonderfull stay in this house, well located on the top of a small hill, enjoyed a nearly permanent light wind.We had chance to make some daily trips for visiting Sevilla, Cordoba, Ronda, Malaga and Granada.
The e-mail contact with the owners was perfect, very friendly and with the right information.Arriving in the house, the pool was heated, the house was very clean and we felt at home the moment we opened the door. In the house, everything was present for a perfect holiday. Outside barbeque, washing machine and a dish washer, very well equipped kitchen, good furniture and good beds with more than enough towels for us. The only minor point was the satelite receiver, that did not work, so we had no television during our stay. But that was more than compensated by the view over the hills. The house, standing on a very good location gives you the feeling of total freedom. Shops are nearby and also Comares is a very nice place to visit, with a very good restaurant. We love to come back in this very well equipped house, so we booked again for a week in january and also an other vacation in may next year. Highly recommanded.Rob en Els Noordergraaf
Lovely home, lots of space, great pool and amenities. Lovely area next to Comares, high in the hills of Andalucia. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Was central enough so that we could coordinate day trips to Granada, Cordoba, Gibraltar, coastal towns, etc. Comares is a lovely town.
Location Magnifique, vue imprenable et piscine tres agréable.
Maison magnifique, localisation calme avec très belle vue dégagéePiscine chauffée très agréableMerci pour votre accueil et pour votre présence efficace en cas de problème.
We liked the house a lot. It was, as described - spacious, clean and well equipped. Also the beds were big and comfortable. But the best of all was the heated pool. Makes a holiday with kids in spring or autumn so much more relaxed. You have a great view from the house - especially from the big terrace on the roof. The contact to the owners was very friendly, very fast and always helpful. We\'d definitely come back there.
Die Villa ist ein wunderschönes alleinstehendes Haus in den Hügeln an der Costa del Sol. Das Haus ist fast neu und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Wir haben es sehr ordentlich und sauber vorgefunden. Der Pool mit Blick in das Tal ist ein wirkliches Highlight. Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen.
