Things to do

Here at Diva España there are plenty of different types of activities available to you. For those of you who are more active and adventurous why not take a horse ride or mountain bike around the meandering tracks and paths, or perhaps if you are wanting to relax and be pampered, have a full body massage or pedicure. The choice is yours.

Pampering

Always extremely popular with our guests are the range of beauty treatments that we offer in house, including massage, facials, manicure, pedicure, chiropody and waxing all carried out by fully qualified and experienced ladies.

Walking

Around Comares there are five marked walking routes ranging in difficulty and time (1 to 10 hours). Also, right on our doorstep there are many footpaths and donkey trails guiding you through the beautiful olive and almond groves, including one ancient path which leads you to the Meseta de Masmullar remains with its underground water chambers. To view some of the walks click here and visit the Comares website which is in English.

Horse Riding

Just a stroll along the dirt track is Claire, she owns a stable with three horses and is an experienced and friendly horse trainer. Depending on your level of experience, Claire will either walk or ride beside you, meandering along the mountain tracks at a pace that suits you. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Yoga

In the local village of Los Ventouros there is a quaint shop which sells Moroccan artifacts, handmade jewelry and local organic produce. Ruth the owner is a fully qualified Yoga teacher and runs Yoga classes on a Wednesday and Saturday, no matter what your level Ruth will make you feel very welcome.
