Torremolinos is perfect for kids as you can park on the main promenade and at no charge. Marbella and Puerto Banus beaches are also great but parking is typically 10 euros for the day in the main underground car parks and take approx 40 mins to get to. If you fancy going further afield, the infamous Trocadero beach in Marbella is within a 50 minute drive and has a beautiful restaurant/bar, kids club, climbing frame, free parking and toilet/shower facilities - perfect for enjoying the beach in luxury!
There are some fabulous golf courses nearby – Lauro Golf, a 27 hole golf course and Alhaurin Gold, a 36 hole golf course are both 30 mins drive away.
2 hours drive from the skiing resort of Sierra Nevada. Granada is also worth a stop over.
Malaga Airport is 30-35 minute drive or 45 mins by train. Car hire is not essential as Alora has a very good train and bus service. Although we now always hire a small car as there are so many places to visit locally. Go to our website for further information on local activities and more pictures of the house.

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.

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!
