Make a holiday rental property or villa in Alora, Spain your home away from home

Alora, Spain, is a small, whitewashed Andalucian village set high in the rocky hills of Malaga Province. Far from the busy Costa del Sol, Alora is a beautifully quiet, natural place, which always extends a warm welcome. Taking a self catering rental villa in Alora is perfect for those wanting a more authentic Spanish holiday, where beautiful natural surroundings, rich wildlife, fine food and traditional architecture shape your holiday. Rock climbers will be very happy in Alora accommodation too!

Things to do on holiday in Alora, Malaga

When you first arrive in a rental property in Alora, Spain, on of the best ways to get to know the village is to take a walk to the top of the hill, upon which Alora Castle stands. The castle is built in Moorish style, with many of the decorative Moorish features still visible. The streets which cross the hills below Alora Castle are lined with citrus trees, converging onto a delightful square at the bottom, where the imposing Church of La Encarnacion stands.

Being an agricultural area, Alora’s Monday market is a lively event, where all the finest local produce can be bought cheaply, meaning you can stock the shelves of your self catering Alora rental villa with some of the finest local produce without breaking the bank. Of particular note are the olives and citrus fruits which can be seen growing on the slopes surrounding the village, and the brandy which is distilled in the village.

Alora accommodation is set in peaceful surroundings for much of the year, but the village does enjoy a number of lively fiestas throughout the year. At Easter, the Santa Semana festival is one of the most colourful and vibrant festivals in Malaga, and is a perfect time to take a holiday rental in Alora, as this fiesta is certainly not for the benefit of tourists, and is celebrated with vigour.

Alora is a haven for nature lovers and walkers. There are many miles of marked trails, and the spectacular lake region just a few miles from the village is a very special place to walk and revel in the scenery. The surrounding hills are particularly rich in bird life, and walking, cycling and horse riding holidays are actively encouraged. The rocky El Torcal National Park is especially beautiful and suited to walking, horse riding and cycling holidays. After a day exploring the hills, the nearby Carratraca Spa offers the perfect way to recuperate and prepare for another day of exploration.

A rental villa in Alora is also perfect for exploring the surrounding region, with good access to the Granada, Cordoba, Seville and the beaches of the Costa del Sol, as well as the less known attractions of the Lobo Wolf Park, Ardeles Caves and the Fuente de Piedre, a favourite habitat for migratory flamingos.

Places to holiday in Alora, Malaga

The El-Chorro gorge is just 12km from accommodation in Alora, and is one of the best gorges for climbing in Spain. Climbers flock to Alora property from all over the world with the express intention of tackling the grade one rock faces.

Weather in Alora, Spain

Although temperatures in the summer are very hot, reaching daily peaks of around 36°C in the summer, there is no need to shelter in your Alora holiday rental property during the day as the stiff mountain breezes keep the air fresh. Walking holidays to Alora are great at any time of year, as temperatures very rarely dip below 10°C.

Flights to Alora, Spain

You can be settling into your holiday rental villa in Alora within forty minutes of leaving Malaga Airport (AGP), which receives daily flights from across the UK throughout the year, especially in the summer months.

It was clean, provided with all the necessary appliances, furniture, bedding, towels, cutlery and so forth, and only 10-20 minutes walk to the Old Town of the city and its many attractions, and beach. It was also only 30 minutes walk to the main train and bus stations, giving easy travel on Spain's excellent public and private transport systems to many other of Andalucia's historic cities and towns such as Seville, Cordoba, Ronda and Mijas (I also did a day trip to Gibraltar). For airport transfers there is a convenient bus stop only 15 minutes walk from the apartment. Sue's apartment is a great place to stay in Malaga, is very wll located and perfect for a short or long stay. I strongly recommend this apartment.

On arrival, they even picked us up from the airport although it was really late on a Saturday night, showed us round the apartment and gave us useful tips about the area. Katie kept in contact throughout, to make sure everything is OK and offering further helpful information. Extremely kind! The apartment was lovely (just as in the pictures), very comfortable, excellent layout, well-maintained, very clean, well organised, with everything that one might require for a self-catering holiday made available and more. The kitchen was well stocked (there was even a really nice bottle of wine to welcome us there, biscuits, milk, juice, coffee, etc - the hosts really made us feel very welcome, and this was truly appreciated). Very comfortable kitchen/dining/lounge area, with tasteful decoration, a great place to relax at the end of a busy sightseeing day. Nice bathroom, very clean, well stocked as well, hairdryer in the storage cabinet, plenty of clean towels. Good size bedrooms, a double and a single, with very comfortable beds, plenty of blankets in case one got chilly, plenty of storage for clothes etc. In general, I found everything I needed was already thought of and provided:-). The price of the apartment was excellent value for money. The location was also very good, 10 minutes' walk from Maria Zambrano Station (the main train station) and main bus station (also with direct links to the Airport), close to shops, local supermarkets. Within walking distance to the beach. For excellent gourmet food at reasonable prices, do try the Gastro Bar La Alvaroteca. To conclude, this was an excellent place to stay and have a relaxing time, I will definitely recommend Katie and her apartment to my friends and relatives when they plan a visit to Malaga. Malaga itself is a beautiful city, and has good public transport links to many other interesting locations (Seville, Cordoba, Granada/The Alhambra, Caminito del Rey, Nerja Caves etc). Well worth a visit!
