The Andalucia / Almeria Province region
Partaloa village has around 750 inhabitants and is 600 metres above see level. The village is traditionally Andalucian with white washed houses all nestled into the mountain side. The Spring and Autumn are the lovely seasons, and sunshine with warm temperatures are pretty much guaranteed. In the summer months temperatures can get very high with constant sunshine!!!! Ideal for the sun worshipper with the private pool to cool down in. The summer evenings are long and warm, ideal for al fresco dining, relaxing outside with a cold, long drink or partying at any of the local summer fiestas. The local scenery is largely unspoilt and the local views are quite breathtaking especially with our incredibly colourful sunsets. Partaloa is a slice of real Spain and an ideal place to have that relaxing break away from the stresses of city or town life.
The Albox / Partaloa area
As already mentioned we have fiestas all through from the spring to the end of October, so you are guaranteed one to be happening locally while you are here. The summer fiestas are a hive of activity with live music and dancing, kids entertainment, shows and all types of food available. They go on in each village for around a week and continue into the wee hours!! Other places of interest to visit while you are here are the Monastery at Saliente (30 minutes), the lakes at Baza (45 minutes), beaches at SanJuan (1 hour 15 minutes) and the Alhambra Palace (2 hours). If you come in the winter you can ski on the Sierra Nevadas which is near Granada around 2 hours away.
