About Georgina Hodge

We bought 35 Calle Malaga in 2006 for many reasons including the fact that our parents also live in the same town. This meant that we could combine holidays with seeing family which is even more special now that we have 2 young boys.

When we decided to rent our home out to holiday makers, the fact that our parents lived nearby made it an easy process for us as they are always on hand to help out and make sure all our holiday makers have a great time.

Georgina Hodge purchased this house in 2006

Why Georgina Hodge chose Alora

The traditional nature of the property and it's old, unique features made us fall in love with the property straight away - even though the back half of the house was in ruin. It took us 18 months of hard labour to build/extend the house and to furnish it to what it is today. It was a true labour of love and we are thrilled with the results. Our holidays there are very special and our boys love it too.

What makes this house unique

We've managed to combine the authenticity of an ancient, traditional, Spanish town house with all the mod cons that everyone needs to enjoy a chilled out holiday. This includes WIFI, flat screen TV with English channels, dishwasher, washing machine, 2 barbecue areas, sun loungers and 2 double hammocks for the ultimate in relaxation!

Super holiday, glorious house in a great location!

  • 5 out of 5
Well then! We all really, really enjoyed our stay in Alora. The property is just fantastic with plenty of space, a great top floor with perfectly located beer fridge and brilliant views over them there hills.
The plunge pool was a huge hit with the kids (aged 7 and 10).
Overall the Townhouse is well situated, clean, full of the mod cons we're all used to at home within easy reach of the beaches and lakes which are a must visit.

A welcoming home from home.

The property was lovely, very clean and well maintained. All the comforts of home with some wonderful features. Everyone enjoyed the roof terrace with its beautiful views and the kids loved the pool. A great base from which to explore the lakes and the coast.

Fantastic house, views and location

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful, well equipped and very clean house.
Fantastic facilities with great out door areas - one off the kitchen where we spent our time as a family relaxing on the loungers and the occasional well needed dip in the pool, and the impressive roof terrace where we spent most evenings. The views from the roof terrace are just beautiful and we spent many a nights on the double hammocks star gazing.
Location wise - it was fantastic, a short walk through the traditional, narrow streets to both the old town and the new town which had plenty of lovely bars and restaurants - all authentic which was nice. The other fantastic part of going out for for something to eat was that everything was so cheap! - for the first time in many years, we came back from our holiday with spare Euros because we couldn't spend enough!
The owners of the property - Georgina and Mat really went out of their way to accommodate our wishes and make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Viv and Gerry, their parents live in Alora so it was reassuring that someone was there if we needed anything and they gave us some great local tips of where to eat out and visit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so much so, we have booked again for next year and we would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Great stay at the Alora House

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing time in Alora and this was our second stay there!! The village is very quaint and has so many friendly people, George and Matt (owners) have made it even easier as they have friends in many of the bars. All these people looked after us really well.

The villa is great for chilling as the rooftop hammocks allow you to chill and when it gets a bit too hot we were able to walk to the outside pool that is only 10 minutes away. It is great for sunbathing and you can have the odd dip if you feel.

The house has everything you need in the kitchen and all the rooms are well kitted out and done to an excellant standard. Barbecues on the roof terrace are the best as you can chill whilst cooking and there is also a fridge there saving you any trips back to the kitchen!!

If you want a chilled holiday but still able to drive to nearby beaches I would recommend this as a great break

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Alora is a very friendly place and are especially kind to children. That is why we go at least two or three times a year to relax and escape the rat race and the terrible British weather. A true home from home for us and hopefully for everyone else who stays there.

Mat, Georgina, Jamon and Jonty

Car: recommended

Our beautifully restored Andalucian town house is hundreds of years old and is situated on a row of typical Spanish dwellings. It has a comforting 'home from home' feel with a modern appearance and cosy ambiance set amongst traditional Spanish surroundings.

The house is less than 5 minutes walk to Alora, a traditional Spanish whitewashed village sitting on top of the El Hacho hills. It has narrow, winding cobbled streets lined with lemon trees and crammed with shops, restaurants, bars and grocery stores.

It is also within 15 minutes walk of an outdoor swimming pool which is open throughout the summer months and is a 5 minute drive away from a pool/bar/restaurant in the barriada with stunning views up to Alora and the old castle.

The house is within easy reach of Alora train station with a direct line to Malaga (and coastal resorts). Malaga airport and Churianna beach are only 25 minute drive away and the well known Trocadero beach in Marbella is 45 minutes by car.

Alora is very popular with walkers and climbers as it is only 20 minutes from the beautiful Andalucian Lake District called El Chorro – famous for its beautiful lakes, rock and gorge climbing and perfect for swimming, rock climbing, walking, sailing and fishing.

The infamous Trocadero beach in Marbella is within a 50 minute drive away which seems much less than that when you can enjoy such beautiful Spanish scenery. It is such a great place to chill out and enjoy a glass of wine on the beach in pure luxury! The kids love it too especially with the addition of a climbing frame and kids club to keep them well occupied.
