We stayed here for 16 nights and loved the house and the village. This is the Spanish equivalent of a quaint higgledy piggledy English cottage. The layout is unusual and there are a lot of curving stairs making it unsuitable for anyone with problems climbing stairs. The roof terrace and balcony mean it is probably not suitable for very small children (as per the owners description on the web site)
The owners were very welcoming and friendly.
This ancient village house has been lovingly restored by the present owners giving an authentic Spanish feel to living in an authentic Spanish village.

Holidaying only very infrequently over the past twenty years, and only been to mainland Spain only once ever, the vacation was important to us. Especially important to us was the location, that is the property and its location as we were a party of 6 with 3 generations included.
We couldn't have wished for a better combination of all the various parts that make up a holiday. Firstly, we must say that if the stereotypical touristy 'English' holiday in Spain with full English, Fish and chips, and pints of bitter, is your thing, then click on further down the list of places, as this is definitely NOT for you!!
We arrived late on the Friday night at Malaga and were helped out by a really efficient transfer agent - Transfersdesol - brilliant. The mini bus that took us was too big for the streets of Algarobbo, so we had to walk a little, but a quick phone call to Lena the owner and all was well.
A quick tour of the 3/4 storeys and she pointed us in the direction of the nearest bar for food and drink, this at 11pm. From that moment on the whole experience was fantastic.
Algarobbo is simply a wonderful place, where there are no other tourists and no-one, but no-one speaks English, which was great as we got to know lots of locals and were welcomed with help and smiles everywhere we went, despite our 'Biarritz phrase book Spanish'.
Breakfast on the wonderful terrace every morning after going to the small supermarket for fresh bread, ham and cheese - all dead cheap!!
Then to the beach by bus, also dead cheap, which was about three miles away. One great feature was the municipal swimming pool which cost just over a Euro from 15.00 to 20.00 all day in the week- brilliant 25metre pool which rarely got that busy, with a bar/snackbar as well.
The property had everything we wanted, it was clean and quite cool despite no airco. There was a nice shower on the terrace, which was handy when the temperatures climbed in the late afternoon.
We called Lena a couple of times during the week and she was always happy to help.
The property adjoins a residence belonging to a guitar player, so we were treated to flamenco music and singing til the small hours some nights, but it just seemed a normal thing to do, and as there are few or no tourists, it was just part of life there.
All in all a great holiday and one we are loathe to recommend too highly as we wouldn't like to see the place get too popular!
