The Andalucia / Malaga Province region
Álora is 40 km inland from the Costa del Sol near the famous climbing area of El Chorro at the head of the Guadalhorce Valley famous for citrus fruit growing. Famous for the warm sunny climate, the Arabic architecture and food, the moorish influences of the old towns, and the gentleness and welcoming nature of the Andalucian people, this is a wonderful place to visit and has something for everyone.
Transport via road or rail is excellent, and access to cities, sporting activities and wonderful beaches is really good. Malaga is underrated and the old town is well worth a visit - not only to see the Picasso Museum. The shopping is good too! Recommendations for day trips - Cordoba by train, Gibraltar by car, Nerja/Maro by car (just over an hour)
The Alora area
Álora is a traditional white hill town with winding streets, and lots of small shops, restaurants and bars. Just 12 km from the town is El Chorro with world class climbing attracting the best climbers. The Ardales Lakes are just a short drive through the national park - wonderful for swimming, hiking, cycling, and gentle walks. This is a beautiful area year round.
Andalucia is renowned for its Ferias, its festivals and holidays. Here we have a feria in July when everyone enjoys the holiday atmosphere, enjoys the dancing and singing with flamenco of course being the star performer. The nearby areas and villages all have their own ferias too, so there is plenty of enjoyment to be had. However, all year round there are excellent restaurants, many having large covered terraces for shady summer eating. In winter we celebrate the day of the kings on the 6th January, and we have holidays for 'Andalucia Day' and various saints days throughout the year. Any excuse really to get together with friends, relax and eat together and generally have fun.
