Alora, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
A luxurious 2 bedroom penthouse in a historic part of Alora, a typical working Spanish village in a whitewashed village where commercial tourism is no where to be found. Alora is a beautiful village that has a Moorish Castle which is illuminated in the evening which dominates the skyline and all this can been seen in the penthouse's two terraces. Alora is well link - by bus and train. The train station is walking distance to the penthouse and the bus stop is just a couple of minutes away by foot.

Helen and Steve, are always on hand, are very helpful and have put a lot of thought into what makes a stay enjoyable. A brilliant apartment for a restful stay or use as a base.

The Penthouse (to quote Mary Poppins) is practically perfect in every way, from it's traditional Andalusian location in the Pueblo Blanco that is Alora, to the fact that it has commanding views of both the village and surrounding countryside with its mountainous terrain. Alora is very easy to get to from the airport either by car or train. Steve and...

About the neighbourhood
Alora is located in a very fertile area of the Guadalhorce Valley and 15 minutes away by car to the El Caminito del Rey. A very green area because of the rich fertile soil so the area is full of citrus and olive orchards and the landscape is very hilly and breathtaking. It has a very mild climate in the winter and spring and very popular with cyclists, mountain climbers, water sports enthusiast and golfers. A great base for touring the region . . . to visit Seville, Cordoba, Granda, Ronda, Antequera and the City of Malaga.
