“Perfect property + Perfect hosts = One awesome holiday.”
Reviewed 18 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Right from initial enquiry, through to checking out of the Penthouse, Helen and Steve showed unrivalled passion and professionalism.
The attention to detail in the property is second to none...every imaginable step has been taken to ensure a comfortable stay.
The property is furnished to a very high standard, includes all mod cons and is spotlessly clean.
The views from the terraces will, I promise you, leave you breathless.

Alora itself is REAL Spain. No trappings of tourism here, just natural, unspoiled beauty in every direction. Superb Tapas bars, even fine dining. If the British Pub abroad is your thing...look elsewhere!
If, however, a taste of true Spanish life is your desire, please...look no further. Neither Helen, Steve, or indeed Alora herself, will disappoint.

Use Alora as a base to go to the mountains. The lakes. Even the coast. And do not miss Malaga...a gorgeous city in her own right...not just an airport!

Lastly...if you are lucky enough to visit Alora, drop in to see Gary at Casa De Correos Restaurant and say Hi.
Tell him that Tony and Ella sent you....

Part of our job satisfaction is knowing that our holidaymakers are enjoying themselves and when they express so in a few parting words, our Guests Book, through email messages or a review posted in our webpage then it affirms that we must be doing something right. Having said that, we do not rest on our laurels but are inspired to find ways improve further.

Our town Alora, being a typical Andalusian white washed village, has narrow and winding roads. During the olden days only donkeys and horses passed these medieval village roads. The penthouse is located in the historic part of town and so to access the garage you should have a small car and brave enough to negotiate the streets. Some of our holidaymakers (those not brave enough to drive these roads) are glad enough to park their cars in the free municapal car park which is only 10 minutes walk away (or 300 metres away). The narrow street has its blessings since you do not have passing traffic and therefore the area is very quiet.
