A glass of wine on the front Andalusian patio

House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Nearest beach 45 km
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Air conditioning
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

An Andalusian house, with patios, garden and orange grove, from which you can visit historic towns, local fiestas or the coast, or walk and bird-watch at the Lakes, or where you can just enjoy a relaxing holiday in a typical Spanish town.

The house is in a relaxing semi-rural location, just 2 km outside Alora, set in an orange grove, with views of the hills. Apart from two living areas and kitchen, it has one double bedroom with large ensuite bathroom, an upstairs bedroom with twin beds, and a second shower room & WC downstairs. It has a front patio and a garden, and you can wander in the orange grove!

'Oranges' can be rented separately for up to 4 people, or in combination with the adjoining 'Lemons' (see property no 87246) for a total of 6 people. Both houses have double sofa beds for occasional visitors.

This white-washed house in inland Andalucia has its own orange grove and is surrounded by beautiful hills. It has a double bedroom with French doors onto the patio, and ensuite bathroom (there is also a small room leading off for a child if necessary). In addition, there is a shower-room and second toilet also downstairs, and a bedroom with two single beds upstairs overlooking the garden. There is a dining room next to the kitchen and a living room that remains cool in summer.

The private patio and garden make for a delightfully relaxing holiday - or you may be out sampling Alora's restaurants, Malaga's museums and shops, exploring the national parks or coasts. The keynote of this property and this location is that it offers a genuinely Spanish experience, and a tranquil vacation, while still being within easy reach of popular locations.

It is quiet, but not isolated; near activities (especially walking, climbing, bird-watching, picnicking, swimming or canoeing in nearby lakes or local open air pools) but also excellent for visiting historical and cultural sites, and for sight-seeing, eating, shopping in the lively town of Malaga, as well as in the picturesque small town of Alora.

It is child-friendly, because spacious, and most of the property is on the level, except for the upstairs bedroom. It is far from the crowds and traffic of the Costa del Sol, but the beaches are nonetheless within easy reach for a day trip, as are Cordoba, Ronda & Granada. Oranges can also be rented together with adjoining property Lemons no 87246.

The Andalucia region

The Andalucia / Malaga Province region

Alora is perched on a hill within a fertile valley (Guadalhorce) and shares the climate of the Costa del Sol (hot in summer, mild in winter, lots of sun, occasional heavy rain). It is surrounded by miles of natural park, and some spectacular landscapes.

Malaga province, as well as its coast and mountains, is home to some of the most beautiful historic towns of Spain.

Alora

The Alora area in the beautiful Guadalorce valley

The area is excellent for walking, climbing, bird-watching and generally enjoying the countryside (with various activities being catered for locally, such as cross-country biking, riding etc). Beyond the spectacular gorge of 'El Chorro', you can visit/canoe on/swim in the lakes, or the natural park of El Torcal, with its standing stones and wolf-park. In Alora, visit the Arab fortress and eat at the tapas bars in the various charming squares. Visit the historic towns around, such as Antequera, and a little further afield, Cordova and Granada. Do not miss the old town of Malaga, with its Picasso museum, shops and bars. The coast is near enough to enjoy a day at the beach. Alora and Malaga both have significant Easter celebrations, and there are numerous festivals during the year (enquire at tourist Office).

"We wanted a nice quiet, comfortable place to stay in the area; Naranjas ticked all the boxes"

This is a pleasant, if a little quirky , small Andalusian house with a shady patio at the front and a pretty sunny garden at the back equipped for alfresco eating or just lounging around. It's nicely furnished throughout with a large sitting room and dining room; the kitchen is well equipped for anyone who, like us, enjoys shopping for and cooking local.food.

We used the large ensuite bedroom on the ground floor; it has a big , queen size (?), comfortable bed and access to the garden. We also liked the nice upstairs twin bedroom because it has a great view across the valley to the distant hills; but it isn't ensuite, so one has to use ithe separate cloakroom with a shower on the ground floor.

The setting is semi rural, surrounded by orange and lemon groves. The nearest town, Alora is a pretty hillside place but it IS hilly with some very steep streets. We enjoyed eating at a couple of its restaurants and tapas bars: the supermarket and specialist shops had all we needed when we wanted to cook. It's about 2 kms from the house – walkable, but we cheated and used our car, there's a gated drive by the house.

We found a lot to do and see, had a couple of good walks but we needed wheels to visit the surrounding historical and scenic places. The “El Chorro” gorge is spectacular and we enjoyed our day driving to and around the 'lake district” where we found a great restaurant overlooking the lakes. Further afield, but within range are Granada (famous for its Alhambra) and Malaga which has a super market and shops as well as the Picasso museum.

We were only there for a week – so we didn't get to the beaches but they seem to be well within reach for a day at the seaside.

We enjoyed staying there, it's a good base for touring and a peaceful spot for just relaxing or escaping a Northern European winter so we shall certainly use it if we visit the area again

There is one downside; there is no WIFI ; although we found an Internet cafe in Alora;. We were also able to use our mobiles - so a WIFII dongle would probably be the answer.

THE TICK BOXES BELOW

Disabled folk -Although we didn't think to look specifically we don't recall anything which might cause a disabled person difficulties in using all of the downstairs rooms and gardens.

Small Children We think the main bedroom is big enough for a cot, (didn't see if there was one available) but the upstairs bedroom is probably only suitable for children beyond the "toddler" stage. Otherwise, we don't recall anything which would make the house and garden unsuitable for children
