Reviewed 13 March 2013

We stayed for 4 days in the apartment. JR & James could not have been more accommodating. JR even met us at Malaga airport to be my tour guide, as I was nervous about driving. The apartment was spotless, the sofa bed already made up when we got there and everything we needed was right there. Plenty of local restaurants nearby and that wonderful view over the hills each day. What more could anyone ask for??

Wonderful hospitality and a perfect apartment for a family of 4, including two ever growing teenage boys! We could have self catered but the breakfasts are too good to miss and we generally ate out in Alora in the evenings. An ideal set up for us.

We were only able to stay a short two days here on our touring holiday of Andalucia. Would have loved it to be longer, but glad for the time we had here. Our accommodation (in the self catering apartment) was superbly clean and really had that high end hotel feel in the furnishings. The shower with side jets particularly impressed me.

The location is superb, with a great view indeed over the valley. (The pool area would be an idyllic chill out in summer) It's also very convenient for visiting some of Andalucias best natural attractions, with the El Torcal area not too far away and El Chorro gorge literally just up the road. It's also handily close to Malaga airport without being in any way too near the godawful coastal towns and resorts.

Jan Roger was super friendly, interested, and helpful. Even helped us get our muddy walking gear laundered. Thanks!

Only slight issue might be that the self catering in the flat could have done with a few extra utensils and things, but I'm sure Jan Roger would have provided anything we might have asked for. It was absolutely fine for a short stay and not nearly a big enough issue to bring this down from full marks.

If you do visit make sure you place close attention to the driving directions they provide. It is a little complicated to find. Also good to have a look on google street view before your visit, which made it much easier for us. And then watch out for Alora's mental drivers when you're there!! Wouldn't hesitate to book again though on a future visit. A really superb accommodation provider.

I stayed 11 nights in September 2012. It went by so quick and yet, I'd do it all over again. I love Álora and how secluded it is from the touristy coast. Waking up to the overlook of the valley with all the citrus and olive trees each morning was paradise. Breakfasts were stupendous and fresh each morning. JR outdid himself each morning and even fried me some chorizo on bread for lunch one day without hesitation.

I worked remotely and did emails and calls while I stayed here and the Internet was plenty fast for all of my needs. If only I had that view at work every day and could work on the porch again, I'd be in heaven.

If you're looking for a place to get away from the hustle and crowds, a place that is tranquil and breathtaking, look no further and book your stay here.

Spain holds a special place in my heart and now so does my time spent here with James and JR.

James and Jan Roger gave us a very kind and warm welcome, and looked after us extremely well. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well planned and very comfortable. The setting is tranquil and beautiful, we couldn't stop gazing at the views of the mountains and valley. Jan Roger went to great trouble to provide us with delicious meals, even specially researching vegetarian ideas for us.We loved the attention to detail in all that our hosts did for us . Although we managed the easy train journey to Alora this time, we will consider hiring a car next time we go. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are hoping to return next year.

Room Tip: The apartment is excellent value and very comfortable.

Myself and my Husband stayed for 9 nights at Alora Valley View, and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The views are amazing and the peace and tranquil setting is just what we were looking for.
We stayed in the Canada Room on a bed and breakfast basis, the room is lovely and for breakfast we had a choice of cold or hot food which was really nice.
Jan Roger and James who run the guesthouse are fantastic hosts and made us feel very much at home.

We have already booked for next year, can't wait to go back.
