The sprawling grounds that are not only home to Ferry and Julie (who reside in Grandma’s Cottage, next door) but also their collection of pets which include dogs, cats, and hens.

Further details for Finca Lo Martin holiday farmhouse rental in Comares, Spain.
The nearest village to Finca lo Martin is the stunning hill top village of Comares. This pretty white village sits hanging off a cliff and has strong Moorish influenced buildings and history. The position of the village means that is will not be commercialised to the main stream tourist trade and the coaches that visit the villages nearer the coast do not venture this high up, which gives an amazing peaceful environment. This area is the real Spain, accessible due to it being only 1 hour from Malaga airport, but unspoilt and in some ways in a time capsule of Olive Groves, Almond Orchards and Orange Trees that drop their fruit into the walkways below. The experience of renting Finca Lo Martin, allows guests to escape the everyday stress of current life whilst simply relaxing around the pool and grounds or having an agenda that can take in cities such as Malaga and Granada, beaches like Torrox and Nerja with it’s famous caves. There are pretty villages, none as special as Comares, that can be searched out and explored in abundance and if you like festivals these take place throughout the year and are plentiful throughout the spring and summer months. The area is perfect for horse riding, walking, mountain biking, bird watching and many out door facilities.
Please note that all our prices are for the complete rental of the Farmhouse. We aim to give a very good value price throughout the seasons. There are no extra charges for Easter and May Bank Holidays and if you have requirements such as high chairs and cots please ask upfront, and we will arrange this.
The complete aim of our rates is to be simplistic and above all great value.

We are not worried about the odd cup or glass, it is really asked just to help protect the bigger items. Finca Lo Martin is just 3km up a typical Andalucia track which leads to a peaceful and safe environment, a 4 x 4 is not required, but not a good idea for a Ferrari !!!!

For just the 2 of us, there was a lot of house for us to enjoy inside and out.
A wonderful, peaceful and relaxing time in a remote, quiet location.
Wonderful hosts Julie & Ferry were welcoming and left us to it for all of our time there.
Quintessential rustic farmhouse with fantastic views.
Can’t recommend this enough for a real feel of getting away from it all.
The animals were great company, especially the dogs on the early morning runs up into the mountains - I miss them already!
June 2019 family of 6
We came as 2 families to celebrate a 50th birthday in June, it took an hour to get here from Malaga airport, expect very winding cliff top roads with beautiful breathtaking views. The house sits in the middle of the hills attached to the owners house, Julie and Ferry are so welcoming and so helpful nothing is a problem but they are not at all intrusive.
The house fits 6 of us comfortably, plenty of room and each found a our favourite place to relax.
There are family pets and chickens here and our 6 year olds loved them so much and it was nice for the dogs to join us for our walks.
If you are looking for an authentic rustic Spanish place to stay, relaxing, quiet atmosphere and fun in the sun and the beautiful pool then Finca lo Martin is the place for you. The nearest village is comares but on the way there I suggest you stop at el molinos for the Gambas Pil Pil!!!! Comares is a beautiful village on the top of the hill with all white buildings and views that will blow you away. The church is exquisite (you can get the key off the old lady at the top of the street, be prepared to buy something from her in exchange for the key but well worth it)!!
We spent most of our time at the house as we had everything there including BBQ and mini kitchen outside.
We are just in the middle of booking again for next year, thank you Finca Lo Martin for making our celebrations special and our holiday here memorable.
On arrival at Finca Lo Martin we were welcomed by Julie and 4 very friendly dogs, who along with the cats were to become firm favorites with our children during our stay.
The farmhouse is huge, and can quite easily accommodate large groups, we are a family of six and there was ample room, everyone had their favorite spot to chill. We immediately felt at home and were able to relax from the minute we walked through the door.
Julie and Ferry are lovely and are on hand if you should need or want to ask anything. Although they live next door this wasn't a problem as they weren't intrusive and it gave us peace of mind to have them there.
We made use of the wonderful pool with its fantastic views over the surrounding hills. It was luxury first thing in the morning to read and watch as the house martins came and swooped down to the pool. There are also ample places to sit and relax and a huge tree that helps to keep the front of the house cool. It was also a favorite place for our children and its where the animals would come to relax out of the heat and have a cuddle!.
Finca Lo Martin is remote and rustic and an amazing place if you want to get away from it all and relax. We all had a great time and would love to return one day.
Finca lo Martin is a beautiful and wonderful place to stay. It's very remote and excellent if you want to spend some relaxing time as a group. Ferry and Julie are lovely and so are their dogs and cats. I was worried that the animals would affect my asthma and allergies, but the animals aren't allowed in the house so I slept very well each night.
Finca Lo Martin is a beautiful spacious homely house lovingly decorated but at the same time very practical to accommodate all your holiiday needs and more! There are five lovely spacious bedrooms that suited our family of 2 adults and 6 children perfectly, 2 had lovely on suites and upstairs another shared bathroom. Downstairs our 14 year old son had his own very nice double room with toilet next door and a door leading to pool and terrace. Kitchen was well laid out and included all utensils, crockery and appliances that holiday makers could wish for. Also worth noting all windows and doors are covered with mosquito screens which we found fantastic as there was no fear of wee beasties at night! The kitchen leads on to a
lovely shaded atmospheric courtyard which in turn leads to the pool and bbq area. The pool is just amazing and the views over the valley superb, the bbq is just great very user friendly with sink and table, we certainly cooked some meat on there. Last but not least we have to mention our wonderful hosts Julie and Ferry who are such lovely friendly and helpful people, they are available to help out with anything but at the same time are very discrete and you almost wouldn't know they were there. Finally our children would never forgive us if we didn't mention the wonderful animals, friendly, Spanish mountain dogs Lily, Bruno and Bamboo then there's little Chip and the cats .... We had an amazing holiday and one day we will be back
We arranged to stay in Finca Lo Martin for a family gathering and from the beginning Julie and Ferry (and David and Jacqui who help with the rentals) were great to work with. My partner and I were traveling in Spain for several months so we were able to go and look at the place before making a decision. My first impression was that the property is very well loved and reflects the generosity of spirit of its owners. Having seen one other property that did not really look as the website described, I was pleased that the reality matched what is presented online for Finca Lo Martin. The house is beautiful, spacious and usefully furnished. The kitchen was the best stocked "self-catering" I have ever encountered. The shaded terrace is great for playing, eating meals, and hanging out. The pool is beautiful and larger than most pools in Spanish holiday villas (again, don't be fooled by photos trying to make a dipping pool into Olympic size). From the pool terrace there are amazing views of the countryside and at night you can watch the moon come up over the hills or stare at the stars. Ferry and Julie provided us with herbs and vegies and we bought eggs from their chickens. The dogs went on walks with us (even our midnight full moon walk) and were a constant and comforting presence. Lola the pig is indeed a star. We had three children with us and all the animals (even the cats) were affectionate and calm and did not seem to mind the occasional hug/maul approach of little ones. One of the mums in our group said that it will be pretty impossible to take a holiday anywhere in the future that does not supply cuddly pets on site.
Finca Lo Martin is made for people who like to venture off the beaten track and get away from the crowds. It is rustic but comfortable and beautifully decorated in a warm and homely way. The kind of place you want to go back to again.
