Nice house with great terrace
Great place to start exploring Andalucia!
We loved it.
Many thanks Thomas and really glad that you enjoyed the house and Alora so much. With best wishes, Kevin
We had a wonderfull week in Alora and in this house. It had a lot of space and the terrace was very relaxing. The house is in a perfect place to visit the village. The restaurant behind the white church is really good. And you can drive to Malaga or the mountains easily. Or you could go by train to Malaga as wel. It all has a real Spanish vibe and it calls for a Spanish siësta.
Thank you for the review and, as ever, we're really glad you enjoyed your holiday and the delights of this lovely town. KM
Lovely Home in the Sunshine
We had a lovely week in Alora. The house is well equipped and of a good size. All 3 bedrooms are large. The outdoor space is fantastic with 3 terraces plus the splash pool area which the children loved. There is plenty of sunshine but also plenty of shade available for when it gets too hot. We were delighted to receive a welcome pack on arrival which meant we didn’t need to head to shops straight away.
Alora is a nice town to explore, the hills can be very steep at times but also short and manageable. It’s less than 10 minutes to walk into town where you will find plenty of places to eat and several supermarkets, one large one. We found the restaurants and shops fantastically priced especially when compared to the coast. We used the municipal pool a couple times, the changing rooms have had a refurbishment this year and it’s very clean. We got the train down to Malaga a couple of times, you can get a bus to and from the station for €1.55 each or we called a taxi for €5 with our cases on last day.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit the area. Kevin was also great to deal with responding to all queries promptly.
Thank you Sarah. I'm glad you and your family had such a great time and enjoyed yourselves so much in the town and exploring further afield. We have been going to Alora for 12 years now and we are still finding new things to do! With best wishes, Kevin
charming house in the old town of Alora with fine Sun terasses
We enjoyed our stay in the end of october with both days of hiking in the mountains and bathing in the mediterranian sea. Our three children (5,7 and 10) loved the house and the walks in the old town of Alora.
Thank you for this, Kai and hope to see you again. Kevin
Thoroughly enjoyable stay
The house is located in a quiet area a short distance from the town centre. Views from the terrace are amazing. The house is well equipped with all you need for a comfortable, hassle free stay. The welcome pack adds a nice touch when arriving without provisions. As well as the shops in town where you can buy Fresh fish, Meat, Vegetables and fruit, there is a large Mercadona supermarket at the other end of town. Listen out for the horn of the bread van and fish van in the mornings where you can buy goods pretty much on the doorstep.
All in all a good house in a nice location ideal for exploring the local area.
The excellent rail links make getting out and about simple if you decide to take a break from driving. We took the train to Malaga on one occasion and Ronda on another.
Thank you Lou - glad you enjoyed the house and Alora so much.
Fantastic base for a family adventure in Andalucia
First impression of the house is wow! The pictures do not do this place justice, from the spacious living area and generous bedrooms through to the kitchen (with a welcome pack of bread, milk, snacks and wine) out to the traditionally decorate outside dining area you start to think you made the correct decision to come on holiday here. but, then you go up the stairs to the sun terrace with the plunge pool, BBQ and upper terrace area and you really know you have arrived at the perfect holiday home!
We used the house as a base to explore the region, here are our tips : drive up to the lake (la Isla) at El Chorro and dive in to the water off a pedalo then stop off at la garganta on the way home. Get the train to Ronda from Alora station to visit the most stunning place you could hope to see. Get the train to Malaga Maria Zambrano and amble around this historic city, go to the Tuesday market at Fuengirola for bargains. Walk in to Alora in the evenings and eat Tapas in D'Kanas and have beers in the many bars while you soak up the Spanish way of life... you start to imagine yourself living here!
But most of all don't forget to just relax in the sun drinking cruzcampo and cooking on the BBQ.
Everything about this holiday and especially this property was wonderful and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break away from the crowds and the beaten track.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful house and allowing us to experience such a perfect holiday.
We will be back.
Thanks for this Stuart - really glad you enjoyed your time in Alora!!
We ask for 25% deposit on booking, the balance about 6 weeks before the holiday. Cheaper airfares tend to be in mid-week and to let you take advantage of these we keep the changeover day flexible, even in the main summer season. For a family of four this can save you £200 or more on flights. We also try to help you by accepting bookings for whatever length holiday suits you, not just full weeks
