Farmhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
It is an ideal base to explore Andalusia as the Alhambra in Granada, Ronda and Malaga are all in easy reach. That said many people arrive with packed agendas planned only to shut the gates and lose themselves in their own tranquil oasis with pool, fountain and lush sub-tropical garden, picking oranges and figs from the trees with the heady scent of dame de la noche wafting in on the night breeze.

The Andalucia region
Malaga is a stunning city steeped in history and culture with the added advantage of sub-tropical climate allowing its pleasures to be enjoyed even in winter months. Whether sampling local tapas, chilling on a beach, exploring the historic centre or embracing the spirit of fiesta at one of the frequent ferias there is truly something for everyone all year round.
Ardales & the impressive gorge at El Chorro are 15 mins drive so the stunning scenery of the national park and freshwater lakes, along with some of the best walking, climbing and outdoor activities Andalusia has to offer are within easy reach.
Ronda is a beautiful town with a huge gorge dividing the 18th century and mediaeval parts. The views are simply amazing. The caves at Nerja are some of the most impressive to be found anywhere with regular concerts held in the subterranean cathedral like space.
Frankly the list is endless and there is a wealth of information at the house or I am happy to offer suggestions based upon your particular interests.
The historic village of Álora is an charming example of a working white village, set in a beautiful valley with a Moorish castle perched upon one of the peaks, surrounded by mountains, citrus orchards, olive and almond groves.
Álora is situated 40km (30 mins drive or train) from Malaga centre or its sparkly new airport on the Costa del Sol.
The village is a quaint mix of ancient and modern steeped in history and culture but with a vibrant buzz.
You will soon learn that the lunchtime siesta is sacred - the village (including busting Monday market) goes from thronged to deserted as the locals take the opportunity to get out of the sun and share food and time with family and friends but in the evening the village comes back to life. A local speciality is a granizada (slush) made from hazelnuts and served at the little ice cream shop in the village. It is not uncommon to see a cluster of people sat around the steps enjoying ice cream in the balmy temperatures at 2.00am
