Description

This Andalusian house has its own garden, two patios, and an orange grove to wander in. You can simply relax, or use it as an excellent base from which to visit natural parks, historic towns, or the coast. You can experience local fiestas or you can explore the spectacular countryside, and swim or bird-watch at the Lakes. Or where you can just enjoy a relaxing holiday in a typical Andalusian town. Either way, you will experience a different Spain.The house is in a pleasant semi-rural location, just 2 km outside Alora, amidst citrus trees and hills. Downstairs, there is a sitting room that remains cool in summer, and a dining room next to the kitchen. The master bedroom leads out on to a patio where you can have your morning tea! There is a large ensuite bathroom, an upstairs bedroom with twin beds overlooking the garden, and a second shower room & WC downstairs. There is a double sofa-bed in the living room for occasional visitors. The house is private and there is off-road parking.

It is child-friendly and accessible, because of the outdoor space and most of the property is on the ground floor, except for the upstairs bedroom which is up quite steep steps.The house has traditional charm, with comfort and modern facilities.All in all, the private patio and garden make for a delightfully relaxing holiday location - 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; it is far from the crowds and traffic of the coast, but with historic towns and beaches a day trip away. '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.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

The Andalucia / Malaga Province regionWhile it is home to the coast and many beaches, this region has a wealth of unspoilt countryside, and natural parks and lakes in which to explore and relax.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 beautiful countryside, with walking, climbing, wild life 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. From Alora, you can visit castles and Roman and Moorish monuments. You can take the train for a day to Ronda, or take the train and spend a night in Seville. Do not miss Cordova and Granada - but do book the Alhambra in advance!The lakes to the north and the coast to the south are both within easy reach for swimming, boating, walking, bird-watching.The region is lively - with fiestas, markets and eating out at most times of the year!

Alora

Authentic Spain, in a restful location but full of interest: the white town of Alora in the beautiful Guadalorce valleyAlora is a charming, small, white Andalusian town, with plenty of shops and restaurants which are much more reasonably priced and more genuine than on the coast (good fish dishes but no fish and chips!), so you are soaking up the atmosphere of the real Spain. It is a pleasant town to wander in or to sit out at night; there is a castle and museum worth visiting.Around he town there 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).At the spectacular 'El Chorro' gorge, the cliff walkway (the Camino del Rey) has been rehabilitated as an important tourist attraction -to walk it, you have to be a climber (or very brave!), but the area is wonderful for walking, sight-seeing and a meal out. Slightly further on, a drive away, are the Lakes, known for offering a cool swim in the summer, other water sports, and bird-watching. The Fuente de Piedra is Spain's largest salt-water lake and home to flocks of flamingoes at certain times of year.Malaga and the coast are within easy reach (road or excellent public transport). The old town of Malaga is well worth visiting for its bars and restaurants, sights (an Arab fortress, a Roman amphitheatre, the splendidly housed Picasso collection and other museums), and wonderful shopping, ranging from boutique to outlet shops. You can take a horse and carriage to visit the town, or stroll down to the quayside for seaside eating.The coast has a buzz in summer - but out of season you can practically have the beach to yourself! Try the pretty beach at Nerja as well as the long stretch of sand and local bars on the edge of Torremolinos.Cordova and Grenada are really not to be missed if you like history and architecture - each deserves a day, but for Granada it is best to book a ticket for the Alhambra in advance.There are Easter processions in Malaga and Alora, a summer festival in Alora (usually late July/early August), and a September 'romería' in Alora, with a procession up the the hermitage and festivities in town. For fiestas in the area all year, consult local tourist offices. The train ride or drive to Ronda goes through the beautiful Sierra de las Nieves.

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

Reviewed 19 Mar 2014

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
