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!
Originally built approximately 100 years ago, and situated in the "campo" (countryside) between the white villages of COMARES and COLMENAR, (an uncomplicated 45 minute drive from Malaga airport (no dirt tracks)! Casa Los Petates, nestles on the outskirts of the sleepy spanish hamlet of El Romo, here, the friendly locals still farm the land, harvesting olives and almonds, mules are still used for ploughing and goartherds roam the verges.
There is a local bar, sometimes busy, sometimes quiet, depending on harvest times, here, little english is spoken but you can be assured of a warm welcome from Antonio and his wife Maria, who along with serving you a cold beer or glass of local wine can usually rustle-up a simple local dish - upon request!
OUR OPINION:Whatever you plan to do during your stay, from snorkelling and ski-ing to birdwatching and walking, or simply soaking up the sun and RELAXING! we believe Los Petates has all the ingredients for a truly memorable and enchanting holiday

FREQUENT VISITOR, JUDY BANKS, GIVES HER OPINION OF HOLIDAYING AT LOS PETATES.
"What is the attraction of Los Petatesï¿½ï¿½ï¿½..?
Could it be the beautiful view as you take your first steps up to the villa on your arrival or, as you come out of the front door first thing in the morning? Its breathtaking
The villas beautiful, quiet location
The eagles soaring overhead, always take your binoculars.
The cooling, refreshing pool
The whispers of the trees as you take your first nap of the day
The Bacardi and coke from the outside fridge and bar.! Sometimes itï¿½s just too much to walk the short distance to the kitchen
Afternoon tea as you sit by the side of the pool taking a welcome break from the heat of the day.
The refreshing shower in the evening before you dine alfresco.
The warm sultry evenings
The barbeques the best we have ever used.
Self-catering never! More like relax, easy, affordable luxury dining.
The little eyes twinkling throughout the hills as you stand on the rooftop admiring the distant village-light views at night. The myriad of stars.
The well equipped kitchen and the welcome pack that awaits your arrival, always a delight.
The little white villages of Colmenar and Riogordo, where you pay inexpensive prices for local produce and goods.
The trip to Eroskis for the all important main shop,well worth a visit to stock up.
If you can manage to steal yourself away , take a trip out and about, the coast is only an hour away (Torre del Mar) where a large market is held every Thursday or a little further along the coast is Nerja,a beautiful beach surrounded by the clear sparkling sea
Or for a winter retreat
The log burner that warms you right through as the evening becomes cool it adds the most beautiful atmosphere to the already cosy, traditional Spanish villa.
To sit at the old rustic dining table, candles glowing for that special evening meal.
The walks that are achievable in the cooler temperatures.
A trip to Comares be brave it is well worth the adventure.
So whats the attraction of los Petates? well you decide!
