Nestled just below the stunning village of Comares, sits the equally charming and character filled property La Zahurda.
This stunning property comprises of a Finca and Cortijo located next to each other and set in gorgeous mature grounds with sea views, mountains vista’s and the lovely village of Comares all vying for your attention.
Each of these properties can sleep 6 guests and have been designed to offer a high quality, charming and unique holiday experience for the travelers that would like to experience a beautiful unspoiled area of Andalucia which is practically located to tour the area but also gives tranquility and space to relax from everyday life.
The gardens are mature, colorful and designed to allow for sun and shade in equal measure and quirky areas lend themselves to guests having their own space to divulge in reading or local research, if though the group wants to be together the lovely 8 x 4m Roman Stepped pool is perfect and in the evening a group game of boules is always appealing in the court below.
The properties are either rented as a whole or in the quieter season maybe one for smaller groups with the other closed off so you still have privacy.
La Zahurda as well as being a superb location for group holidays also lends itself to being a great base for walking, climbing and many outdoor pursuits, plus great for bird watching groups.
The views are an incredible stimulation and natural for painting holidays, writing groups and also cooking courses in a lovely environment are on the agenda.
The owners have a keen interest in introducing this incredible place to all different styles of travelers so please do ask if you have a specific hobby we can help cater for or offer advice.
This property is also located so that although you are in a peaceful location you can also leave the cars on the drive and walk up to the amazing and historic mountain top village in around 15 minutes.
Decent shoes and a good torch are a recommended requirement, though one of these items we can provide !

David really went the extra mile to choose the right villa for us. Nothing was too much trouble and the liaison between the owners and ourselves was suberb. Would have no hesitation in recommending Vine Ridge Retreats if you want to make sure everything goes right.
8th June - 21st June 2022
We have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks of total relaxation at La Zahurda. Thanks to David and Jacque you've found us an absolute gem this time. La Zahurda is a stunning property with beautiful views to the coast and surrounding area. It has everything you need and more to make your stay comfortable. There's lots of outdoor space with lovely quirky areas to relax and enjoy the ambience and not forgetting the pool. The villa was spotlessly clean and we wanted for nothing. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. Clair the housekeeper was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. During our stay the weather was extremely hot for the time of year and Clair told us about a natural spring just up the road which we shared with the goats to refill our bottles 🙂
The beautiful hilltop village of Comares is just literally up the track however the road was closed for new drainage works and so we couldn't walk from the villa. The locals are very friendly and there are a few bars and restaurants which serve very nice food.
All-in Car hire were great as always and very reasonably priced.
We can't wait to return thanks David, Jacque and Clair.

We are just home from a 5 week stay at La Zahurda and couldn’t rate it high enough. When booking David was so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and he responded so quickly to emails/queries. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Vine ridge retreats.
The houses and grounds are a delight. Super clean, lovely decor and great facilities. Comares is just the best wee town and we fell in love with it. Clair, the housekeeper, was a star.
Fast forward from arriving to leaving.....quite a different world with the coronavirus. Understandably we were concerned about getting home but were reassured by the owners that we could stay as long as need be if our travel was disrupted. It really put our minds at rest and we thank you all for that. We will be back
La Zahurda welcomes you like an old friend – its easy atmosphere, wonderful setting and excellent facilities start to work their magic as soon as you arrive, quickly resulting in a feeling of relaxation, away from the world. We were a family group of 12, staying for three weeks in July, and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The property has a good size pool and terrace and many separate areas to relax, so we never felt crowded. We would heartily recommend Al Zahurda to groups seeking a peaceful holiday in superb surroundings.
We were 10 people staying here and we all were very happy about the place! The houses are really nice and all over the place there is an amazing view and so many nice small areas were you can sit by yourself and relax.
Its at perfect walking distance to Comares and still far out so there is quitness during the day and night. The pool is lovely and the internet is great.
A place that we would deffiantly go back to soon!!
