Sample the real Spain! A superbly appointed detached country cottage/rustic villa in the heart of Andalucia, enjoying stunning mountain views! A perfect base for exploring or simply relaxing!

Situated in the countryside between the white villages of COMARES and COLMENAR, and just 45 minutes from Malaga airport, Casa Los Petates, nestles alone on the outskirts of the sleepy spanish hamlet of El Romo, where the friendly locals still farm the land, harvesting olives and almonds, mules are still used for ploughing and goartherds roam the verges.

Here you will be able to savour the simplicity of every-day rural life, our temperate climate, world reknown cuisine, and the friendliness of the Andalucian people

Referred to as "Andalucian Retreats" on the owners website, my partner and I experienced it as just that; Los Petatas offers a hidden getaway that transports you to the 'real Spain'.
Hit by the pine aroma on approach to the casa, once inside you are greeted by a spotless and spacious cosy living room, leading to three traditionally furnished bedrooms and two bathrooms. A typically authentic Andalucian kitchen opens up to views of the valley below, whilst the swimming pool provides a refreshing 'dip' following a lazy afternoon's lounging in the garden/terraced areas complete with outdoor BBQ, bar and fridge!
Further providing a sense of 'solitude' the casa offers you opportunities to capture the local wildlife/ flora and spectacular views, particularly from the roof terrace where throughout the day you discover the ever changing mountain colours, into the evening emerged into a field of stars.
Albeit the generous welcome pack with 'necessities' to kick start...

We stayed at Casa Los Petates in July 2014 and having stayed before at the other property next door "Finca Minola" we knew that we nothing to worry about!

 From the moment you park on the driveway next to the gorgeous Casa it's like stepping into another world, complete peace and quiet and views that will absolutely take your breath away.

The Casa is immaculately kept and has everything you need to ensure that you are able to completely shut down, unwind and relax on holiday.

 We used the BBQ & the cool refreshing pool most days, and just spent each of our 7 lazy days just soaking up the sun on the roof terrace. The closest town - Colmenar is a good 15 minute drive away from the Casa so ensure that you stock up on supplies in Malaga supermarkets with everything you need. There is a lovely little local bar a short walk down the hill where you will find locals and can enjoy cheap drinks! 

The Villa owners, Sue & Trevor are only a phone call away if you ever need...

How to get there
Malaga airport is just 45 minutes by car, Eastward along the A7 and then inland along the A45. The motorway connection is good and the last leg of the journey via quiet country roads is generally trouble free apart from the odd goat herd! We provide comprehensive directions to take you directly to the house with the minimum amount of fuss.

For long Winter lets, guests may either fly to Malaga and hire a car, or take the ferry to Bilbao or Santander.
